All my life, despite my anger at God and my belief that He was not speaking to me, it was clear to me that He often guided me to specific books that were tailor-made for where I was in my spiritual walk.
He used these books to teach me, to expand my understanding, to give me a new perspective, to challenge me, to inspire me to continue the journey, and to bless me. I would like to share with you some of the ones that have impacted my spiritual life in a significant way.
