Earlier in the week, I posted my top 10 books of 2019. (If you missed it, click here.) Then I asked my Facebook friends for the best books they’ve read this year. Here are the (unedited) answers:
Josh Rodgers “Humility-the path to holiness” by Andrew Murray
David Moerbe 1). You Lost Me by David Kinnman. 2). Today Matters by John Maxwell 3). Saturate by Jeff Vanderstelt 4). Five Smooth Stones by Eugene Peterson 5) Working the Angels by Eugene Peterson
Samantha Buchholz Salt fat acid heat
Caroline Maria Melcher Waking the Dead by John Eldredge…haven’t finished yet, but it’s been a deeply moving read thus far!
Sandra Galindo Deskin 1) Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyers
2) Unashamed by Christine Caine
Both really good bible studies for Women!

The last wish.
Scott Cameron Guide to safe Scouting

Jacob Somerville “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” by John C Maxwell
Chris Curry Sell or be sold- Grant Cardone
Joel Haak Love thy Body by Nancy Pearcy
