Finding Favor With the King - DONE!!

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

I finished another non-fiction book this week. And I'll admit I'm just a wee bit proud of myself. Finding Favor with the King by Tommy Tenney is a book that I would HIGHLY recommend to you all. Out of the 200 pages in the book, I have something underlined, dog~eared or blocked off on over 80 of them.

And I'm not one to write in books at all. So that right there is a good indicator {to me} that there's quite a bit of good stuff between the covers. I've tried several times to sit down and pull my thoughts together on the book in the form of a blog post, but for some reason it is so difficult.

I can say that it has:
  • really opened my eyes to my relationship with God in some new ways
  • helped me see and understand what intimacy with God is
  • view obedience to God in a new light
  • put a whole different perspective on worship
  • made me love the book of Esther even more
I loved it so much, that I am going to continue the devotional that goes along with it, but also read the book AGAIN straight through so that I can see it all together, rather than in the chunks I've been reading it in over the last few months.

Since fiction seems to be the thing for me lately, I even started a new book by Jackie Kendall called Free Yourself to Love: The Liberating Power of Forgiveness. This one I plan to work on this week since a friend and I are going to read it together and then work our way back through it over the next few months. I'm still going back through her other book The Mentoring Mom bit by bit too.

I did grab a fiction book for this week though, so I'm sure at some point during the week I'll be curled up to get lost in another world.

Here are the books that I currently have stacked up to work on this week:
  • Kiss - Ted Dekker
  • The Mentoring Mom: 11 Ways to Model Christ for Your Child - Jackie Kendall
  • Finding Favor with the King: Daily Inspirations- Tenney
  • Finding Favor with the King - Tenney
  • Free Yourself to Love - Jackie Kendall
  • Grace Based Parenting - Dr. Tim Kimmel

  1. Sounds like a really good book....I usually don't have the patience for non-fiction but this one sounds like it would be worth a try.
