When I was younger, I could easily be labelled an avid bookworm. Sadly, I don't make nearly as much time to read nowadays and books often sit on my "to-read" shelf for several months before I finally get to them. I thought I would share some of my favourite reads form this year though, in case any of you are interested.
End of the Spear by Steve Saint
Steve is the son of Nate Saint, one of five missionaries killed in an attack by the Indian tribe they were trying to reach. After studying, marrying, and having four children in America, Steve moved his family back to Ecuador by request of the Waodani, the tribe responsible for his father's death, after his aunt Rachel Saint passed away. This book tells his and his family's story.
Generation Change by Zach Hunter
When Zach learned of the slavery that once took place in America, he knew he would have done something about it. But then he found out about modern-day slavery. If he would have acted before, why not now? Zach has written several books, and in this one he shares practical advice on how to get involved in changing the world. Why wait for someone else to change things? Get started!
Set-Apart Femininity by Leslie Ludy
One day I'll buy my own copy of this book, and read some of Leslie's other books. I LOVED this book from beginning to end! Leslie writes about femininity's purpose and it's true design in a personal and easy to read way. I think this is a must-read for every woman, young or old!
Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis
Katie's life was turned upside down when she spent the summer of her last school year on a mission trip to Uganda. Now 24 years old (as far as I can see), Katie lives in Uganda, and is a single mom (sorry, she's American) to 13 Ugandan girls. In addition, she provides food, medical care, and education through her ministry, Amazima. Her life isn't easy but she loves it!
Mamarazzi: Every Mom's Guide to Photographing Kids by Stacy Wasmuth
You don't need to be a mum to read this book! Stacy gives lots of great advice on the various aspects of photography, especially focusing on child photography. A great resource if you're looking for some guidance in your own photography!
