Some of my favorite books
Here are 10 (other than the Bible) that have made a major difference in my spiritual journey:
1. The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle. When I read this book, I thought, “Well, here it is!
The answer to all my questions!”
2. Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, by Marcus Borg. This completely changed my
way of seeing and relating to Jesus.
3. Be!, by James Dillet Freeman. Probably my all-time favorite book for sheer inspiration.
Helped me learn about faith at a time when I didn’t have any. It may be out of print
4. The Grace in Dying by Kathleen Dowling Singh. This is a fabulous book if someone you
love is nearing their transition. Read it in advance so you can make the most of your
remaining time together.
5. Loving What Is by Byron Katie. Made me realize how much I make stuff up and create
stories that make me unhappy, and how to stop it.
6. Animals as Teachers and Healers, by Susan Chernak McElroy. Inspiring stories that
helped me see that animals are here to teach us as much or more than we are here to
teach them.
7. If You Want to Write, by Brenda Ueland. Not just about writing – it’s really about having
the courage to put yourself out there.
8. Love, Medicine and Miracles by Bernie Siegel. Gave me hope when a loved one was
facing cancer.
9. Life After Life, by Raymond Moody. Fueled my continuing interest in life after death.
10.Discover the Power Within You by Eric Butterworth. A classic for conveying Unity
The books on my nightstand that are currently competing for my attention are How to Pray
Without Talking to God by Linda Martella-Whitsett; The Gifts of Imperfection and Daring
Greatly, both by Brené Brown; Everything Belongs, by Richard Rohr; Occult America, by Mitch
Horowitz; and Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda.
Happy reading!
With love,
