With My $30 Amazon Gift Card I Bought...

...Books!   Well, is that any surprise to y'all? ; )

A few weeks back I was the recipient of a gift card for a giveaway hosted by Ashley to help promote and spread the word of a group of families who were fundraising for their adoption. I thought I would share with you the books I purchased with my $30 blessing!

First up is:

The Life of God in the Soul of the Church: The Root and Fruit of Spiritual Fellowship by Thabiti Anyabwile  

Our family saw Thabiti Anyabwile, Michael Horton, and Voddie Baucham speak this past weekend at the Semper Reformanda Conference in Houston. You can still see each of the keynote talks on video streaming for the next week or two here. Do not miss the panel discussion. Watch that one first and then go through the sessions from there. You will be blessed.

Next book I added to my shelf: 

Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ by Russell D. Moore

One of my very favorite books is Adopted for Life by Russell Moore. I look forward to reading this author's latest publication.

Finally, a book I saw advertised in TableTalk magazine/devotional this month:

The Call to Wonder: Loving God Like a Child by R.C. Sproul, Jr.

Once the cool weather returns, I see myself with a cup of tea in the chair by the fireplace reading one of these three books. I know Kindles and Nooks and iPads are great for books, but I still like to feel the paper pages as I turn. Swiping a screen just isn't the same : )

Thank you again Ashley!


  1. I'm glad you still like paper books...they are what keeps our food on the table! (My hubby works for LifeWay).

  2. Thanks for sharing your selections! I'm with you - I like to touch my books and turn real paper pages. I also like to own them. One can never have enough books!!!! Wish I could join you by the fireplace .........

  3. I love "real" paper books too. That third book looks really great!

  4. Looks like good books! You'll have to do a book review when you finish them. Glad you enjoyed your gift card!


We love to hear from you! Please leave us a comment or ask a question.
