While the kids have been home this summer, I have taken the time to rest my fingers and read some new books. There are many out now that are very good reads and that are hard to put down.
I love stories that are true and ones that really pull at the heart strings. Here are two really great ones to get you going.
Inconceivable written by Carolyn and Sean savage.
This story is their true life story about their experience with artificial fertility treatments and the unimaginable problems that could occur. I had a tough time wiping the tears the last two chapters but the story portrays their strength and bond with God. It is a beautiful story that I would have liked to see end differently than it did.
The next story that is a good recommendation is called Proof of Heaven written by Eban Alexander MD. This story has is moments when you need to reread the words over and over to see what he is saying because at times it is written like a doctor would speak. This is a true story of a doctor who is very intelligent, does not believe in God and comes down with a viral strain of Spinal Meningitis. He goes into a coma for awhile but what he discovers while in that comma brings him to back to health and he leaves medicine to tell people about his conversion to believing in heaven and God. It’s a hard read because of the terminology but you put that aside and the meat and potatoes of the book comes out and proves something that only God could reveal to man. It is powerful and I highly suggest you take the time to read both of these books.
Take the time to curl up with a book and enjoy the last few weeks of summer time.
