Mustang, Wild Spirit of the West, by Marguerite Henry

Started 04.08.20 • Finished 05.13.20 / 5 stars

"Annie Brown Johnston really liked horses. But when truck and air roundups started, mustang became endangered... When Annie grew up, she married Charley Johnston. When she was a kid, she displaced her spine. She wore a cast to put it back in place. But when she took it off, she found her face was crooked. Air and truck roundups started. Annie persuaded the government to make that unlawful. When the bill was officially made a law, she said, "We--we the people, have won."

Holding on to Hope, by Nancy Guthrie

Started 09.03.19 • Finished 05.08.20

Isn't that what you and I want, even now, in the midst of our painful circumstances--to understand God like we never have before, to see him as we've never seen him before, to emerge from our days of suffering with God's blessing and with a life that can be described as good?

Nancy Guthrie walks the reader through the book of Job, showing us how his suffering changed and enhanced his view of God. A powerful read for anyone going through suffering.

Job was blessed through his brokenness by his restless pursuit of God. He gained a new, more intimate relationship with God that he never could have found without the pain and sorrow.
