Books worth reading…

I cherish my personal library and appreciate when the right book gets into my hands at the right time.  Here are a select few that have made a difference my spiritual journey.  These are helpful in my ministry and the books I recommend most to others–about deepening spiritual growth, strengthening our relationships, and leading fulfilling lives.  Check back often as I update my favorites list.
