I love anything by Andrew Murray. This one though is one of my favorites. Jesus Himself is a call to rely on Him alone, to allow Him to dwell in us, use us, and to surrender all to Him. Easy reading, this book reads like you are hearing him preach/teach. I tend to read fiction super fast, and have to purposely make myself slow down for these types of books. Read it a bit at a time as a devotional or read right through, either way you will be blessed. Good for all ages, the language is outdated, but I think most of us can understand what he is saying. I give it five solid stars.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I try to read at least one non-fiction book per month along with my fiction. Sometimes they end up being informational, but dry. This one is not. It’s a good read as Jeff’s writing style is that of a true storyteller. This book is full of true life stories, his own and some short stories of others. The book invites us to look at the waiting times in our lives in a different light. I found it very though provoking and encouraging. I recommend it for everyone, especially young adults fresh out of high school or college. I am giving it a strong 5 stars and will be reading more from this author.
I picked up “The Importance of the Local Church” by Thomas C. Terry, when he was visiting at our church some time ago. I had actually purchased several of his books and just got to this one. I plan on passing it on to someone who really needs to hear this truth. This is a great Biblical book that explains why we need a good local Church and our attendance, the importance of a sound Biblical Pastor, and how to find one. There are loads of scriptures to back up everything Pastor Terry says. I think it is a must read for every born again believer. I give this book 4 stars.
Throw yourself a party by Dave Duell is a book for everyone.
” How do you react when things don’t go your way?
What do you do when everything seems to go wrong?
In this insightful book, you will learn biblical principles for dealing with difficult situations. As you discover these living truths from God’s Word, you will be refreshed in your spirit and set on a new course of victory over life’s challenges.
Go ahead – throw yourself a party! ”
I have had the privilege of hearing Dave in person and his writing style is as easy as his speaking style. If you are in a hard place, this book is for you! If you’re not, read it and prepare!
Very encouraging, uplifting and inspirational! I give this book 5+ stars. Recommended for pre-teens and up.

“Chapter 29 Revisited: The amazing true story of what happens when a typical American housewife meets Jesus!” by Jean Coleman is a wonderful inspirational testimony of one woman’s birth into the kingdom. I enjoyed this book. Jean Coleman writes in a simple way that is easy to grasp and you can tell she is excited about her subject. She shares several moving stories from her own life, calling it the 29th book of Acts, then challenges to write our own 29th chapter. I give this book 5 stars. This book is appropriate for pre-teens on up.
