Reading list

I love to read. Ten or more books a month is my usual.

Below is a list of books I often recommend and have a note about it if it’s not clear from the title. Most of them are available in the Charleston library.

  • Every Good Endeavor by Tim Keller – The value of work.

  • Safe Haven by Arch Hart – Creating an attachment bond as a couple.
  • Boundaries by Cloud & Townsend – Codependency and healthy relationships.
  • Search for Significance by Robert McGee – Our value is not in our doing.
  • Take Your Life Back by Arterburn & Stoop – Not being defined by past & current circumstances.
  • Finding Peace by Charles Stanley
  • In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart – Everyone has challenges, we need to ‘remove our masks’ to build real relationships.
  • Deep Healing Now – Working through trauma.
  • The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Gottman – This video on the Four Horsemen is a great overview of Gottman’s work.
