So this week has been filled with books! I've ordered my books for school and they have started trickling in and I'm having to find places to put them. I've also had a very challenging summer with the Lord. I have definitely been touched by the Holy Spirit many times and things are moving and shaking here in St. Aug at my church. I'm really excited for the avenues that God will use me this year. But I haven't really had a good time this summer with a regular time with God and Bible reading and such. So I decided to seek out the help of one of my mentors for book recommendations. She recommended several to me and I decided to go to Barnes and Noble to see what I could find. I only found one that she recommended and boy has it been amazing already.
The Power of a Praying Woman by Stormie Omartian. Apparently this book has been around for quite a while, but it still packs quite a punch. I love it already and I've only read the intro and chapter 1. I'm really excited for the journey that this book is going to take me on.
I also impulsively bought Crazy Love by Francis Chan. I had heard of the book and then went to Passion 2010 conference and heard him speak. I really liked him and have wanted to read this book ever since. Plus many people have recommended it. I'm looking forward to starting this book and also being challenged in my walk with God.
My final purchase but not at Barnes and Noble, Amazon. Was Come away my beloved by Frances Roberts. This is also a book that was recommended to me and has been around for a very long time. I do not know much about it except for that it is pretty amazing and I can't wait to get it!

So those have been my recent book purchases. I will be doing my next Europe post soon. My short adventure in Belgium that was very interesting. I just have to get the pictures organized then it's on to Germany and Austria. This has been a very memorable summer and I cannot believe that school is only a week and a half away.
