ashley's book club

I love to read. And I simply wanted to share with you a few of my favorite books - books that have opened my mind to new thinking; books that have brought me into a fuller relationship with Jesus; books by Quaker theologians, a Catholic priest, a Presbyterian Pastor, and more! Some are new; some are classics. Some are readable in one or two hours, while others require deep meditation. Some will challenge you, and some will make you smile at the thought of just how much Jesus loves you. 

My invitation to you is this: While we will not have a monthly “in-person” meeting, I invite you to read along with me as the year goes on. Let’s read together! (And if you DO want to meet, I’m always up for a cup of coffee and a book chat!)
