What's On Your Nightstand - April

Today I am joinging in with 5 Minutes for Books to show you "what's on my nightstand." I always have several books going & right now I'm in the midst of some pretty good ones!
Sorry, no fiction right now...I just finished up a couple of those.

"The House That Cleans Itself" - is a book I've been working on for awhile. I am in the process of decluttering, purging & making everthing work towards cleanliness in my house!

"Bloom Before You're Planted" - I've just started skimming and will begin reading it in earnest this week. It is the book that will be used for an online study. Check it out here.

"Beauty by God" - is written by Shelly Balestero who was one of the speakers at the Woman Inspired Online Conference. It's a great book with lots of practical information.

"Clutter-Free Christianity" - I decided to get after I had heard some great recommendations on it. Since I'm decluttering my home...might as well work on the spiritual life as well. The book is about cutting through the clutter in order to get to the heart of what it means to please God and be like Christ in action & attitude. So far it's been a great read.

"What He Must Be" - by Voddie Baucham...I just bought that yesterday, but am about half way through. It is about what a man must be in order to marry my daughter. Very good book!! It covers so well what it really means to be a Christian & a leader. Excellent when helping your daughters make wise choices, but equally sobering when considering how to help train your sons in becoming that man.

5 Minutes for Mom & 5 Minutes for Books are having some GREAT Mother's Day Giveaways. (I mean GREAT...as in a Mini Laptop or digital camera great!!!!) Hop on over there and check them out!!!

Such great selections! I thought Mindy Starns Clark only wrote mysteries.

Cathy,
Thanks for stopping by my site! I really like your list too! I really enjoyed "Passionate Housewives." A very good book - very practical, and biblical! My husband and I just finished Voddie Baucham's "Family Driven Faith" (and loved it!), and I really would like to read "what He Must
Be to Marry My Daughter (we have a 4-year-old, but it's never too early, right?)

I read the House that Cleans Itself...yet my house remains dirty?!?! Maybe I need remediation?

Great list!
