  • I write my own books honestly but I can't really say one that has made an impact that i have read rather than an actual author like Steven King whom I appreciate for his amazing imagination

  • Although I am not very religious, the book Mister God, this is anna" had a profound impact on me from the time I was about 4 years old and my mother read it to me. It is a book about a little girl whose insight into religion, and faith, are incredible. It is apparently a true story, and very worth the read. I've read it a dozen times since then, and It's been 20 years. I never fail to learn something new from it.

  • Not specific books as much as specific authors....and then I had to be ready to hear and receive the message in the book.....Dean Koontz 's later books has some religious imagery that has given me much to ponder....Richard Rohr is a Catholic priest who has made an impact on how I look at things, so has Andrew Greeley, another Catholic priest who writes novels...Susun Weed has taught me a lot about herbs and how to look at plants, the earth, and life in general...
