Whether you’re flying or riding in the car to your next vacation destination, reading is a great way to start your journey. Below are a few suggestions from our staff. You can read even more suggestions featured in the summer travel edition of Connection, available in the church and online soon.

 

The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson

Teresa Tebrinke recommends this book, in which Bruce Wilkinson gives biblical keys to achieving our dreams, revealing there’s nothing God can’t accomplish when we pursue the dreams He gives us for His glory.

 

The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews

The Heart Mender is a story about reconciliation and forgiveness suggested by Doug Cave. Set on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico in WWII America, Helen Mason is bitter and lonely after losing her husband to the Nazi war machine. When German U-boat officer Josef Landermann washes ashore, she must learn to forgive and let go.

 

Twelve Mighty Orphans by Jim Dent

My own personal recommendation and one of the best books I’ve ever read. The story of the Fort Worth Masonic Home football team is a captivating account of hardship in both the lives of the orphans who lived at the home and all of America experiencing the economic hardship of the 1930s and 40s. Outweighed by at least 30 pounds per man, the undersized orphans shocked traditional Texas football powers and captivated the nation’s heart.

 

How to Ruin Your Life by 30 by Steve Farrar

As someone looking for guidance in a new stage of life, this short book is a much-needed wisdom infusion I whole-heartedly recommend. From starting our 20s on the wrong foot to neglecting our own gifts and strengths, this book will help you navigate adulthood.

 

In Christ Alone by Sinclair Ferguson

Barbara Deatherage suggests this book by Sinclair Ferguson, which is designed to help Christians gain an understanding of Jesus and their faith and to live out that faith every day.

 

Spiritual Parenting by Michelle Anthony

Kristi McElheney recommends this book, in which parents learn an innovative, biblical approach to establish an environment at home that God can use to work in their children’s lives.
