Your 38 Gifts of Inspiration

Dear Generous, Voracious Readers ~

When I asked you last month to please help me find some books for my friend who wanted a few Christ-centered inspirational non-fiction reads, you guys were off and running, checking your overflowing night tables and assortment of reading journals, random piles and organized bookshelves and dusty under the bed stashes.   

And no surprise at all, the best of the best titles tumbled from your wise and generous hearts to hers.  

How could I NOT compile a complete list for your persusal?  What a selection you've treasured and passed on, not only to my gentle, tender friend who continues her valiant fight against cancer, but to our community here ... and those we connect with.

Praise be.
