Books I love by...

My favorite author by far is Nicholas Sparks. His novels are ultra romantic without being corny, and his storylines are amazing. He has a way of creating characters that you feel like you know. Most of the books are set at the coast of North Carolina, which I love because Wilmington, NC is my fav. I love his books. All of his books actually, but if I had to pick favorites... these would be them... check them out! (His books are great beach/vacation reads)

This one is my very favorite probably because it's the first book by him that I ever read. I fell in love with the characters and felt like I knew them.

You've probably seen the movie.. but have you read the book? This is such an amazing story. You fall in love with Noah, want to be Allie. It's just great writing.

Noah is in it. Enough said. But, seriously you just have to read this book to understand how great it is.

If you are a Noah fan, you will love Travis. I read this book in a day. It is so good, you can't put it down. Read it. Now.

This is another one I read in a day because I couldn't put it down. This is such a touching story. So good. Have a tissue handy.

Honorable Mention:

This is his latest book and is also a movie that's out right now. I saw the movie over the weekend, and while it is a great movie, it didn't come close to doing this book justice. This book is great.. it does what a great book does.. makes you laugh, cry and smile in the end. This is a great summer book.. buy it, read it, you will love it.

**I almost couldn't even compile this list because I love everything he has written. I've read all the books and there were not any that I didn't like. Nicholas Sparks is such an amazing author... make sure you check him out!

I went to the most amazing concert/night of worship.  It was on Good Friday and featured Chris Tomlin, Christy Nockels, Matt Redman and Kristian Standfill. It was a night I will never forget. A night of celebration of the cross and of Jesus paying our debt.

I was blessed with really good seats thanks to a guy giving me VIP passes.
I borrowed this picture from Passion City Church's blog. The Verizon Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, Ga was completely sold out. 12,000 corporately worshiping. Unforgettable.

"Oh Praise the one who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead!"

A lot of the songs featured on Passion's new album Awakening were performed that night.
You should buy it. It's completely legit. Amazing.
