Books that have changed our lives

To some, the above title will probably seem melodramatic.  However, it is true.  There have been books that have forever changed our lives.

The first is of course, the Bible.  I’ve been using BibleYear.com to track my reading plan.  I’ve used it for over two months now and I really like it.  You pick the reading plan you would like to use and then it keeps track for you.  Even if I miss a day, I know where I need to be and can get caught up.  This program only takes about 15 minutes a day and will work through the entire Bible in one year.

The second book is Created to be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl.  I can honestly say that if it was not for this book there would not be a Sammy or Kaitlyn.  This book changed my marriage and my life.  This book is not for the faint of heart and is very difficult.  In fact, I could use a refresher, I think I’ll read it again soon.

We recently bought and received a box of books that I know will be life-changing.  We purchased Dave Ramsey’s Starter Special.  As you may remember, we have been trying to get out of debt and we’re not going to incur any new debt, including a mortgage.  Well that obviously did not happen, since we are now buying a house.  Whenever I ask Rod what he would like most he always says “to be out of debt”.  This was my Christmas present to him.  We are working through The Total Money Makeover as a family and then More Than Enough as a couple.  I will be writing everyday (or try to) what we are learning and how we will implement it.  I’m excited to see how this will change our lives!

    Thanks for the Bibleyear.com link. We will be starting it on the 15th. I myself did Dave Ramsey once with my church. It was great. Very good information. I need to go and do it again for I have forgotten alot of what I have learned! Good luck! Looks like you are off to a great start!
