Recommended Reading

In If you’re looking for books to help you in your walk with Christ, here are some recent recommendations from my personal bookshelf.

I Told the Mountain to Move, by Patricia Raybon. With painfully honest and captivating writing, Patricia Raybon takes readers on her journey from lukewarm Christianity to a thrilling and powerful relationship with Christ. She starts her journey out of disillusionment by focusing on prayer. She vows to learn as Richard Foster describes, the “real” way to pray: to “Pray so things healed. Pray so things stopped. Pray so things started. Pray so things changed.” She learns not only how to pray with power, but also how to mend a broken life. Highly recommended.

The Power of Your Words: How God Can Bless Your Life Through the Words You Speak, by Robert Morris. If you think that what you say is expendable both for yourself and those around you, think again. In The Power of Your Words, Morris provides solid Biblical evidence that the words you speak are either a blessing or a curse, and they always have a consequence. By the end of the book, you’ll know “Oh, how much your words matter.”

What Your Do Best in the Body of Christ: Discover Your Spiritual Gifts, Personal Style, and God-Given Passion, by Bruce Bugbee. In this practical and highly readable book, Bugbee provides a sequence of text and evaluation tools to help you discover what you do best as a Christian and within the Church. He guides you to find God’s purpose for your life, your spiritual gifts, personal style, and your passion.

Good evening, Charlotte. My name is Stacey (member of MBC) and Millie gave me the link to your site (which is very well put together, you sure can tell you have a creative side!)and after reading the recommended book list, I went to Amazon.com. Browsed through a few pages of I Moved a Mountain Today, and felt it speaking to me. I had to have this book for some reason. It's ordered, and I'll keep you posted on any God moments that may come as a result. Thank you for sharing your gift and talent. You never know what kinds of seeds you are planting with others. On a side note, I was wondering if you'd share your testimony. Or is it already listed and I overlooked it? Thanks again Charlotte for your uplifting spirit.
