2012 Book List
2012 wasn’t my best year for reading. I only finished 10 books.
I did read some good ones though. I read:
- three different books on marriage (each good in completely different ways)
- one on the church
- one on blogging (which is a must read for anyone with a blog or wanting to start one especially)
- one on boys (which had some incredible nuggets)
- one on strengthening yourself in the Lord
- one on the fear of the Lord
- one on creativity
- and one on the attributes of God (which is now one of my new favorite books of all time- life changing!)
Here’s the complete list:
- The Spirit-Filled Church: Finding Your Place in God’s Purpose – Terry Virgo
This was an excellent book. I definitely recommend it.
