Book List

U TreeThe photo to the left reminds me of my youth when I would sit in that very same spot of my favorite tree and either read or journal and what I loved about it was how it was really my own special (now I would call it sacred) place.  To this day these activities remain a regular part of my life and I like to share both my ideas (writing, blogging, speaking) and my favorite books.

I love getting ideas from other people about books. I especially love when they are inspired by those books, whether they are novels or cookbooks or biographies, spiritual…..it is so great when someone is excited and can’t wait for you to read them. Well, I thought I would periodically share books that have inspired me. To date, I keep finding books that feed my soul and I get it that they aren’t for everyone. The other thing I have noticed is that sometimes I will hear about a book three or four times in a very short period of time and that usually signals to me that maybe I’m being spoken to!!!! Whatever the case, here are a few of my favorites of late:
