Bible Verse and Photo

” . . . whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Philippians 4: 8 (KJV)

Memoirs

I enjoy reading memoirs.

Cynthia Reyes – the blog of Canadian author Cynthia Reyes – wrote A Good Home: A Memoir and An Honest House: A Memoir, Continued.  I reread both books this year, and you can learn more at her site.

Luci Shaw is another author I reread, her poetry and prose.  God in the Dark: Through Grief and Beyond is a classic.  Adventure of Ascent: Field Notes from a Lifelong Journey is another generous book.  Luci’s official website has more information; see the All Titles page.  She also has a page for New Releases.

Jan Karon’s novels are a part of my life.  I reread a few of her recent books this year.

Her new book, to be published this fall, is Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series.

Carol Purington writes poetry, and I have been reading her haiku and tanka for years.   You can read some of her poems and learn more about her books at Woodslawn Farm.

Farm Song is Carol’s new work in progress.  This is a family project for Carol.  Please visit Woodslawn Farm for the latest information.
