  14. My quiet time with The Lord!

  15. It is kind of crazy, but I haven’t read many of Elisabeth Elliot’s books, and I’ve always meant to! I think Keep a Quiet Heart or a Chance to Die would be good ones to start with. 🙂

  16. My favorite thing right now is coffee! I’d love to read Elisabeth Elliot’s book on Discipline.

  17. Singing hymns and spiritual songs is one of my favorite things. I just blogged about the hymn “Be Still, My Soul” last week, and that is one Elisabeth Elliot book I lack, so if I won your lovely giveaway, that would be my choice.

    I came by from Always Alleluia today.

    Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus as you prepare heart and home for Christmas.

  30. One of my favorite things is having a “slumber party” on the living room floor with my husband and kids watching movies and eating popcorn. I have never read anything from this author,, but I love reading Christian novels.

    • Jessica, I love slumber parties too! Once a year I host a girls night and we have a big sleep Over -er rather we sleep when it’s over! If you like Novels, you might like Eliot’s Passion and Purity (the story of how she and her husband got together)

  31. I have too many favorite things-hot chocolate with whipped cream, a good book on a cold day, rainy afternoons in which I get to take a nap-I could go on and on. I love Elisabeth too-her book, “The Shaping of a Christian Family” changed everything for me.

    • Naps! I hear you! They are rare and a favorite too! I haven’t read that one yet! But you are the second person to mention it. I think it might need to be bumped closer to the top of my list! 🙂 Her book on Loneliness dramatically changed my life.

  32. I love curling up with a good book and reading.

  33. I am also a facebook fan..

    Smell of crisp country air and freshly cut hay

  38. Favorite things…. time spent with family, chocolate, a good book and awesome friends!

    I would like Shaping of a Christian Family, or Faith that Does not Falter

  43. Keep a Quiet Heart is one of my favorite Elisabeth Elliot books. It’s actually a collection of shorter pieces from her newsletters. Quite a treasure trove, I think. Thanks for the link to a list of her book: even though I’m a longtime fan of hers, there are several books I have never heard of or read. What fun!

    One of my favorite things is…baking challah bread, and then feeding it to people. 🙂

    I’m already a fb fan of yours, Katie!
