D.E.A.R. Monday - Week of February 8

I'm back! After a LONG week of everyone in my house, including me, being sick, I am finally back among the living.

It's Drop Everything And Read Monday, where I share with you what I've been reading and what's up next on my TBR list.

What I've Finished Reading:
  • The Inner World of Abraham Lincoln by Michael Burlingame - This biography about the psychology of Abraham Lincoln was pretty interesting. Burlingame is incredible at finding information that most biographers have not included. My only complaint is that he used far too many quotes. The overwhelming number of footnotes on a page sometimes made me a little crazy. I have to give this book 3 out of 5 stars (well, circles actually) Ha!. ●●●◌◌
  • Treasures of the Snow by Patricia St. James - My girls and I loved this book! It's such a sweet story of redemption for a little boy who caused a terrible accident and of how Jesus can transform a bitter heart into one of forgiveness and love. This was a great read-aloud for our family. This one gets 5 out of 5 stars. ●●●●●
  • Fervent: A Woman's Battle Plan for Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer by Priscilla Shirer - This is a phenomenal book!! To say that this book is radically changing my prayer life would be an understatement. This book is an excellent companion to the movie War Room. What I like best is that it's not just a book about how important praying is; Shirer shares real-life, how-to suggestions and scriptures for getting me on my knees and developing that close relationship with God that only serious prayer can do. Truthfully, I can't say enough good things about this book; in fact, I have been recommending it to everyone I talk to. Another 5 star book. ●●●●●
