I love this photo, it's kind of how I felt about picking my 10 favorites this year. : ) I read a lot of great books and it was so hard to choose! I probably read more non-fiction then fiction so most of my picks are from the non-fiction genre.
I made my goal of reading 55 books this year, but it was a stretch to the finish line this past month! How did I ever read 70 books last year?
Well now for my top 10 favorite reads of 2014.
God's Smuggler - This was an amazing autobiography by Brother Andrew, a man from Holland who smuggled Bibles into Communist countries in the 1950's. And is still working to bring Bibles to all he can today. It was co-written by John and Elizabeth Sherrill who helped co-wrote the Hiding Place with Corrie Ten Boom. Read my thoughts HERE
Abraham Lincoln: Civil War Stories - I really loved this book! Filled with great stories of Abraham Lincoln, which showed his great character. Read my thoughts HERE
Living Water - Brother Yun is a missionary in China. In his book he imparts his wisdom and encouragement. This was an extremely soul moving book. Read my thoughts HERE
Women Living Well - I first heard of Courtney over at her blog. She is a bubbly, fast-talking lady who loves the Lord and I found I could easily connect with her through our love of being stay-at-home wives and moms. Read my thoughts HERE
Jane Austen's First Love - Super sweet novel! Read my thoughts HERE
Out of a Far Country - This is a moving book about a gay son and a broken mother. I loved reading about their journeys and the wisdom they both impart. Read my thoughts HERE

When We Have Failed - What Next? - K. P. Yohannan is the founder of the organization 'Gospel for Asia.' This booklet is very short but so profound. It shares an encouraging and Biblical way on dealing with our failures and how to move past them. Read my thoughts HERE

Wishing you all a Happy New Year in 2015!
