Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster
Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster
by Jon Krakauer
WHY I LIKE IT
I don't really have this gene in me at all - the extreme gene. But, this is such a raw, honest look at one the worst disasters on Mt. Everest. The spirit that God does put in every human is truly amazing - I know many don't interpret it that way - but God has created all of us in His image. This is just an amazing story and a great read.
What the Bible Says About Healthy Living
What the Bible Says About Healthy Living
by Rex M.D. Russell
WHY I LIKE IT
The godly man, myth and legend. Absolute pioneer and expert that God has a design for food, just like He does for all aspects of life that are essential to us. His 3 principles are the most simple and transformational guiding principles in the area of food, health and its right place in our lives. Prepare your world to be changed for the better! As more background, I had the privilege to know him personally. No more authentic, kind, godly, humble and courageous man that I know.
Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim's Tale
Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim's Tale
by Ian Morgan Cron
WHY I LIKE IT
I grew up in a strong Christian home, great family, and in church, which let me first say I am super grateful for, however, sometimes 'proximity' to God and religious activity is the easiest place to miss God. This story is a must read for a fresh encounter with Jesus.

WHY I LIKE IT
I love this devotional by Spurgeon. There is something powerful about reading inspiring and biblical thoughts from someone whose stories are not 'today' but older, the truth seems to resonate even more with me as I am not caught up in personalities, just being drawn into Christ through Spurgeon's own devotional life.
