God has placed immeasurable treasure of truth and life lessons full of hope and encouragement through each one of these books listed. The inspiration from each one of these authors who live beyond life’s circumstances is priceless.   One of my greatest joy’s is to learn how God empowers people’s lives to make an impact and difference in the quality of how they live that overflows into others.  Thus the gift continues on.  His love continues, it never fails.   My library is vast and I wish I could share all that I have read.  I will be highlighting and adding books from time to time that has ministered to me in a great way.  ~ Many Blessings~
