Let's Talk Thursday-10 Books that changed, touched or entertained your life!

I was challenged by my friend Donna Monds to list ten books that has touched me, changed me and entertained me. Being one that loves to read this was hard because I have so many good reads. I am not challenging you to challenge others but thought it would be fun to see what you like to read! Let me might have read something that I haven't and want too! LOL!

1: The Bible-not only is the Bible true but any kind of story you can imagine is in the Word of God-and everything from the beginning to the end points to Christ

2 Just like Jesus by Max Lucado. (God loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you that way!) 

3: Trial by Fire by Terri Blackstock ( A fast pace thriller, Christian based)

 4: Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers (Shows true redemption of Christ) 

 5: One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp (Being thankful in EVERYTHING in our life) 

6: Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo (Inspiring) 

7: This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti(Scared me to death but I couldn’t put it down)

 8: Fresh Wind Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala (demonstrates the power of God when we trust Him)

 9: The Left Behind Series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins (Praise the Lord I will not be left behind) 

10: The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis  (most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it.) 

 I have so many books on my book shelf that has touched me, changed me, entertained me and  inspired me. And I am a huge Max Lucado fan so I have (almost) read most of what he has written thus far. Love me a good book! 

Have a great day!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy


  1. I think I've read most everything written by Frank Peretti....and I'm not an avid reader. I tried to read the Ann Voscamp book but I think she thinks way over my head...which doesn't take much! :) HOPE you have a great day!!!

  2. I am not much of a reader though I wish I did read more! Just can't get into the habit of it. However, when I do read I enjoy the Anne of Green Gable series.

  3. Darn, I wish I could remember the books I've read! They go right out of my head after I've read them. This looks like a great list!

  4. The Bible...always a life changer, Kisses from Katie...a challenger,
    Off Center...reminder of the special-ness of the ordinary,
    The Jesse Tree...a calling to Advent, preparing hearts for Christmas,
    One Thousand Gifts...a call to gratitude
    To the Golden Shore...reminder of the Sovereignty of God
    Through Gates of a totally surrendered life to Christ
    Secrets of the Vine...abiding in Him
    The Simple simply is arrived at through hard work
    Radical Integrity...Living totally for the cause of Christ

    Thank you, Cindy, for giving me cause to pause and think about these books that have truly made a change in my life...and why.

  5. P.S....that should be The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp instead of the Jesse Tree. The Jesse Tree was the project part of the book as we numbered our days through Advent. ;) Hugs

  6. I loved the Left Behind series and have been an avid prophecy student ever since. Of course the Bible is #1, Left Behind series #2. All of Frank Peretti's books and I absolutely loved Jan Karon's Mitford Series! And my list could go on forever but I'll stop here! BTW, I love Max Lucado too!

  7. Cindy,
    Thanks so much for stopping by!! I have been so busy lately......

    I wish I had some time to read.....


  8. I do love to read but haven't read any of these, besides the Bible a little. I've read so many good, great and even simple stories, as once I get into a book, that's it!
    Thank you for popping in to visit me, you made my day!

  9. I have only read one of these books. Guess it is pretty obvious which one . . .


So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
