Who are your hero’s? Apart from my husband there are several people who are my heroes, people who I look up to and who have a certain character quality or accomplishment that I wish to emulate in my life: My Grandmas, My Aunt Mary, Amy Carmichael, David Livingston, Lillian Trasher, Darlene Diebler Rose, Robert Jaffray, and others. Many of these I first learned about through books or videos. Today I’m sharing our list of favorite Christian Biographies and resources.
