Confession: I'm a bookworm.  Lately I've been reading a lot of great books.  My family tries to steer away from some of the really worldly books, but that doesn't mean we sit there all day with empty bookshelves and nothing to read!  In fact, we have so many great books it's amazing!  By having quality, Christian books, we're filling our minds with good stuff, not bad.  Here are some books I've been reading (and enjoying) recently.  You, too, should go pick up a copy at your local library or purchase it off the websites!  Happy reading.

This book is absolutely amazing.  In this second book from the Duggar family, they focus on principles that equip them to face life's challenges.  They (recentley) had a 3-month premature daughter, Josie, and they share their struggles and the joy that has come.  The duggars share about homeschooling, their strong faith, and there are even some fun chapters that will appeal to girls my age!  I enjoyed the whole book, but some of my favorite parts were how they pack for trips, the funny stories sprinkled throughout it, the hundreds of recipes, and the pictures of their family.  A super good book!  More info about the Duggar family and their 19 kids (and, I must add, counting!) can be found at: www.duggarfamily.com, along with some good recipes! 

The next book was just as good, but in a whole different way.  This is the fourth book in Lois Walfrid Johnson's fantastic series, so if you are interested in reading this phenomenal book, I recommend starting with the first book. I won't go too far as to explain the whole plot (it's too good to spoil!), but if you are ready for a wild ride, read the Viking Quest series. The series intertwines adventure, Faith, and hardships as Briana O'Toole (affectionately known as Bree) goes on a journey with her brother, Devin (affectionately known as Dev), and Mikkel (not so affectionately loved).  Will she have a heart of courage?  Find out where to get these books by visiting the author's website: lwjbooks.com

If you are craving adventure and history, this book is for you.  Thomas (11) and Claire (13) go on adventures together to different countries.  But this is not your average "time-traveller" book.  No, it's far from that!  At first I thought it was a book like any other, but once I found out a homeschool dad wrote it, I read it with renewed interest and vigour.  I couldn't stop myself, and before I knew it, the book was coming to a close.  I felt like I was actually there with the sister-brother travellers, and I couldn't stop reading!  This book is simply amazing, and it is a must-read for anybody.  More details can be found on Amazon.com when you type in "Transported by Paul Hankins".

Some of my favourite series' of books would have to be [the older] Moody Press, and Pathway. [books that are easily obtained from second-hand stores]
I especially like the ones by Constance Savery. They are simple little stories of faith, forgiveness, etc.
Be sure to check them out if you get a chance!
