An Inquiry Into the Existence of Guardian Angels

by Pierre Jovanovich

Small Miracles for Families

by Yitta Halberstam
small.jpg This is a feel-good book in a best-selling Small Miracles series about our family ties that defy space, time, explanation and eternity. I browse it whenever I need a pick-me-up to remind me that miracles can be there to help us in our most important relationships in life. I also recommend any of the other books in the Small Miracles series.

Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Soul

by Arielle Ford
1153683.jpg There's something for everyone in this, if you love mysteries of the unseen/unknown and happy endings. Miracles exist for people of all backgrounds from all walks of life. I couldn't wait for another chapter dose of this good medicine.

Walking the Bible

by Bruce Feller
1204148.jpg This is an exciting and uplifting way to visit the first five books of the Bible and realize just what the geographic landscape and archaeological history is behind some of the most well-known and beloved Bible stories. The author travels with a renowned archaeologist and examines the latest archaeological research in the original settings to recapture how much these stories have affected his faith. This is an exciting true story of adventure as well as self-discovery. Also available in Large Print.

Joan of Arc: A Penguin Life

by Mary Gordon
1181227.jpg Joan of Arc was my favorite saint because she was a woman who did the unthinkable and became a man in a very chauvinist world. Mary Gordon is one of my favorite feminist fiction and novel authors and she does Joan justice. This is also good to listen to on Audiocassette.
