2013 Non-Fiction Reads

 2013 is coming to an end. There have been so many books that I have read this year that has left an impact on me.  Here are my top three picks:



Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire-June

A powerful account how Jim and Carol Cymbala began their ministry at the Brooklyn Tabernacle in New York.  After reading this wonderful book I was able to go visit the church and it was life changing.  Here is earlier review.

The author of the best-selling titles Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire; Fresh Faith; and Fresh Power, he lives in New York City with his wife, Carol Cymbala, who directs the Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir.


Sent: How One Ordinary Family Traded the American Dream for God’s Greater Purpose-June

This book follows Hilary Alan and her family on their response to God's calling for them. Even though they were called to a different area I felt connected to them because of my love for missions in Hungary. I cried quite a bit with this one.  Here is a link to my review.
HILARY ALAN, a former public relations professional, is a wife and mother of two children. Hilary and her family moved to Southeast Asia in the aftermath of a tsunami that destroyed villages, homes, businesses, and hundreds of thousands of lives. Today, the Alans continue to advance the work of Christ internationally in their involvement with a church in North Carolina as they prepare for another overseas assignment.


Where God Finds You by Anita Higman-May

I seem to gravitate toward devotionals because each one is unique and always so meaningful to me.  I’m so glad that I was able to read this devotional.  It’s a fresh and unique look at so many bible stories that I have read for so long.  Here is my review.
