  1. This sounded so much like me! I remember going around to other classes when I was in kindergarten and reading fourth grade level chapter books to the older kids. I read everything I could get my hands on, and have read many of these same books. The ones I haven’t read, I’m adding to my list! 🙂 What a precious privilege to be able to read to your daughter words that touched and made a difference in your life.

      It is incredibly wonderful. 🙂 I *should* have asked readers to suggest their favorite books! Do share yours?

  2. This was grand. I love the way everything has come full circle! 🙂
    And although I like many of the titles you mentioned, God’s Smuggler is one of my very favorite books. <3

      Mhmm… yes. I reread it often.

    2. Tashi, I didn’t know there was anyone around that would even know Anne Ortlands books. I loved her books also. Thanks for posting such relevant stories. Love love love them.

        Oh, Norma– I LOVE her books. I still reread them often. I think I was 15 or 16 when I started reading Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman. I think it was her writing that made me think, oh, I should write books too! 🙂
