A few of my favorite things (books!)


A few of my favorite fiction books are:

The Help by Kathryn Socket – definitely my new top of the list

Katrina by Sally Salminen- a very old copy I used to read on my Grandma’s shelf

Safely Home by Randy Alcorn- eye opening to the reality of life for others

Three by Ted Dekker- the first book that the ending surprised me

And of course, all of the Little House books, regardless of my age 🙂

What are your favorites?


About christasterken

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
