These books have helped me in my journey. I recommend them.

Diamonds in the Dust (the first volume). This is a devotional by Joni Eareckson Tada. She has been a quadriplegic since she broke her neck in a diving accident as a teenager. http://www.amazon.com/Diamonds-Dust-366-Sparkling-Devotions/dp/0310379504 – Here is her website: http://www.joniandfriends.org/

In her prologue, Joni writes about Sue Burke who had a two year daughter born with no arms. Joni asked, “How do you do it?” Sue answered, “God has taken us down a rough and rocky road, but we always take time to stop, reach down, and find a few diamonds in the dust.”

The Hiding Place – by Corrie TenBoom. This is the story of her survival in the concentration camps. She was imprisoned because they hid Jewish people in their home. http://www.amazon.com/Hiding-Place-Corrie-Ten-Boom/dp/0800794052/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1360756424&sr=1-1&keywords=The+Hiding+place

Prayer by Ole Hallesby. I found this book by this Norwegian theologian when I was in college. It has shaped by view on prayer and role of helplessness in prayer. What a blessing. Much underlining. http://www.amazon.com/Prayer-Ole-Hallesby/dp/080662700X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1360756550&sr=1-1&keywords=prayer+ole+hallesby

That is all for now.
