Take Ten: Hidden gems of 2016


1. The Kindness Challenge

I was reminded just how much I love this book when I listened to a podcast with Shaunti yesterday (since we were iced in...). Taking on the kindness challenge, for real, was one of my new years resolutions.

2. The Circle Maker

I discovered this one when we decided to do the devotional in our women's study group. It's made me excited about my prayer life.;)

3. The Giftsnatcher

I know I have mentioned this one before, since it was just excellent!

4. My Blue is Happy

I read a ton to my kids, so we are constantly bringing home bags of books to keep me entertained (I don't want to read the same five or so over an over again!). This is one of the gems that we brought home towards the end of the year.

5. As an Oak Tree Grows

This one was a bit over their heads at the moment, but I love how it shows the life of an oak tree!

6. Would a Worm Go on a Walk?

This one is just fun!

7. Beyond the Rising Tide

I love how impossible this story is!

8. We're in the Wrong Book

We love this one!

9. The Princess and the Pig


10. Tackling the Fields

    1. What a fun idea! I will have to be sure to watch for it.;)
      I figured I write about a lot of the same books, so it was time to branch out.;)

    1. I would love to hear your thoughts on it! I'm starting it soon, since kids learn by example and I keep getting after my daughter to be kind, so perhaps I need to evaluate the example I have set...;)
