I just wanted to leave a note to say, "Hi, Jamie!". I found your blog awhile ago, but just re-stumbled across it. Not sure you remember me...we met at HEARTS at First Baptist, I took my daughter to the Above Rubies Conference in Pensacola...we live in Gulfport.

Anyway I'll try to post and not be a lurker.

I tried these 3 books on paperbackswap and none of them are avialable with a lot of people wishing for them so I didn't bother. I am going to try and get them from the library when I finish what I have from the library right now! Although that stack never seems to end - there are always new books that I request, most of them interlibrary loans since our library has NOTHING but a great big new building...with very few books!

BTW - A. Suzy left a comment on my blog for you, I guess she's still kinda new to all of this! I'm sure you don't often go back and re-read my comments so it's there under my lazy blogger post...I think. LOL :)

books to add to your list:

Fiction: anything by Francine Rivers (have you read her?) if not, start with Redeeming Love (her best work!)

Non Fiction: Trusting God, by Jerry Bridges (in my top 5 books)

Africa: Blue Clay People by William Powers and Red Letters by Tom Davis

haha!!! Love you. . thought I'd add even more to your list! I have a really long list of books I want to get to! I just bought "starving Jesus" but I'm not sure what I think of it yet.
