What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

I LOVE book lists!! Mine just grew over the past two days, thanks to you and your "commenters" :o) I noticed the Jerry Bridges book is on your 'to read' list. That is a fantastic, convicting, and humbling book. I loved it. I underline with pencil as I read books like that and I think I underlined every word in that book except for "is, and, but, the" etc. :o) Enjoy your reading!!

Hummmm... two that come to mind that I love would be- Herbal Antibiotics by Stephen Harrod Buhner and Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicine by Stephen Cummings. I've reread them many times, well worth the money to have them on hand. :) I could add a massive list on here, as I have plenty of favorites, but it looks like you have close to enough for now. {Is there such a thing?} :)

I just finished a very sad, very REAL, and eye-opener this past weekend! It's about slum life in India...gulp. It's called Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo. It's very brutal and does have swearing in it.

Great list! I want to read Home Companion also!!!

...they call me mommy... said...

Oooo... the J.R. Miller one also! ;)

The Borrowers Series by Mary Norton(?)- some of my FAVORITES as a child, also Corynn might like the Betsy Books by Carolyn Haywood. (Audrey is devouring those and the Bobbsey Twins)
And lastly, the Henry Reed and Homer Price books by Robert McClusky (yes of Blueberries For Sal fame) I enjoy them as much as my kidlets do!
