The Essential Guide to Prayer

The Essential Guide to Prayer by Dutch Sheets is a how to book on how to pray to gain a better relationship with God.  This book is a good read.    It uses stories from his own life to relate, and really insists on how important persistence is.  Prayer needs to become a habitual practice in your life.

At the end of each section the author asks questions for you to reflect upon to gain a better understanding of your prayer life.  I really liked the real life examples, and how he tied in Bible verses throughout the book.  Overall a great read.

Wow!

Wow! The Good News in Four Words by Dandi Daley Mackall is one of the most wonderful children’s books I have found about Adam & Eve and Jesus.  The pictures are very colorful and fun to look at.  The story rhymes and is even silly at times.  My 7 year old and 4 year old love it.  There are even verses in the back for reference if you want to connect it with the Bible.  Wow! is very easy for children to relate to and very fun to listen to.
