The Living Cross by Amy Boucher Pye

Perfect For Lent

The Living Cross by Amy Boucher Pye has been a marvellous read for Lent. A chapter a day which starts with a Biblical passage and ends with a prayer. Amy Boucher Pye’s thoughts are sandwiched in between.

Amy Boucher Pye writes from experience. Her observations are insightful. She has a huge heart for God and for people.

At the end of each week are exercises designed for self reflection and to draw the reader closer to the heart of God.

The Living Cross has been just perfect to read and reflect on. I am now filing it away on my bookshelf ready to read again next year.

We are the daughters of the King.

I Was Just Wandering by Jeff Lucas

Amusing And Insightful

I Was Just Wandering by Jeff Lucas is a marvellous collection of Jeff Lucas’ musings on life. Split into thirty four short chapters, I chose to read one each night.

Jeff Lucas has remarkable insight into life. His observations, whilst unique to him, also have universal appeal. I certainly recognised myself (and others) at many times throughout the book.

Sometimes I find myself in the wilderness of despair.”
