The Provence Cure for the Brokenhearted by Bridget Asher. Sweet story of a young widow and her son who move to Provence Italy and the adventures they encounter.

Keeping The Castle. Loved this quirky, funny book!

The Happiness Project. "I choose to be happy no matter what drama is going on in my life." Book club for August. Great book that generated a lot of discussion and personal insights.

"It's a beautiful heart, not a perfect body, that leads to a beautiful life." Stephanie Nielson's account of her survival and recovery from a plane crash that burned 80 percent of her body. Beautiful and inspiring.

When The Storm Passes...Fictional grab- your-heart story about a plucky 13-year-old girl who survived the real-life tornado that tore through the town of Joplin, Missouri a couple of years ago. Wonderful story.

"In the sea of grief, there were islands of grace, moments in time when one could remember what was left rather than all that had been lost."

"I realize that the officials are right. Once you want something everything changes. Now I want everything.... I want to pick my work position, marry who I choose, eat pie for breakfast and run down a real street instead of on a tracker. Go fast when I want and slow when I want. Decide which poems I want to read and what words I want to write. There is so much that I want. I feel it so much that I am water, a river of want, pooled in the shape of a girl named Cassia."

Not in the Heart by Chris Fabry. Wonderful! "I could see it then, with Mozart sprinting off on another familiar melodic line, the haphazard, winding hand of God moving the chess pieces of our lives in such a way as to have me at this place at this time on this night...Did God really work this quickly? Was this his answer? I had to believe it was."

Jesus The Christ by Talmadge

The Continuous Atonement. Love it

The Infinite Atonement by Tad Callister. One of the best books on the Christ's Atonement.

I smiled all the way through this book...except when I was trying not to cry. LOVED IT!

One of the best mythology resources out there.

Helen of Troy...a good mix of history and mythology.

"We yearn to belong. Only when we are touched by the Spirit do we overcome, for a fleeting time, our memory imprisonment. Then, as Joseph F. Smith puts it, 'We are lighted up with the glory of our former home.'" "To those of us, then who thirst, I plead, Come to him. He turns no penitent one away. Would you if you had paid so much in suffering? Would you ever give up? All doors that are locked against the Lord are locked by us. He is always waiting, promising life where there has been death, healing where there has been sickness, forgiveness where there has been sin."

"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will."
