35 Books That Have Shaped My Life




Today is my 35th birthday. I thought about what has shaped my life-other than my relationship with Jesus and wonderful people in my life, a myriad of books also came to my mind. I love to read books and learn about new areas that I can grow and challenge myself in order to become a better Christian woman, wife, mother, pastor's wife and friend.
Some of the books listed are on my sidebar under "some of my favorites." 
Others are links to reviews that I've written.
