52 List Project: Your Favorite Books

I don't have a lot of free time to read books, but over the years I have read some really amazing books. Here are my top 5 books:

1.) NLT Study Bible:

I love this Bible! It is a nice hardcover Bible with lots of informative and helpful commentary. I have used this Bible for years now; in fact, I'm on my second one! My first one's cover fell of and the binding tore. Oh well, you know the saying:

2.) The Fussy Baby Book by William Sears:
Really, any book by Dr. Sears is a great read! The Fussy Baby Book helped me get through a really tough period in my life - Titus's first year of life! He cried non-stop and was never happy. This book really, really encouraged me.
3.) Crazy Love by Francis Chan:
Wow! What an eye-opening and convicting book. This book really called me to be more in love with God. A quick, easy read {other than stopping to ask forgiveness many, many times} that I recommend.
4.) The Power of a Praying Mom by Stormie Omartin
Product Details
I read this book when my oldest daughter was young and I plan to re-read it now!
5.) David C. Cook's Journey Through the Bible:
Product Details
Although we use this as a history resource in school, I find myself perusing it throughout the day. It's full of interesting facts and colorful pictures that really make the Bible come alive!
What are your favorite books?
Linking up with my friend at Chasing Slow:
52 lists with Chasing Slow


  1. Great list. I will have to check out the power of a praying mom. Hope you have a wonderful week.

  2. I'm behind in reading and commenting. I've just obviously been too busy and need to practice slowing more!

    Love the Spurgeon quote you shared.
