The Noticer by Andy Andrews – a unique narrative blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration in which gifted storyteller Andy Andrews helps us see how becoming a “noticer” just might change a person’s life forever. This is a “MUST READ” for everyone middle school on up!
Streams in the Dessert by L.B. Cowman (for women) – This is my all time favorite devotional, full of meaningful Scripture and poetry, and I love gifting it to others.
Humphrey's First Christmas by Carol Heyer (for anyone, any age) – This delightful camel has a problem, one we can all identify with, but the charming illustrations disarm us and draw us into the story, making young and old alike sigh with understanding at the last line.

Ish by Peter Reynolds (for anyone) – Encouraging you to be inspired, and create unihibited, and also to recognize the talents in others.
Giraffe's Can't Dance By Giles Andreae (for anyone) – For anyone who doesn't “fit in” or “broke the mold” or thinks “outside the box”, this book encourages all ages to realize that they are created unique and very special. They are not just like others for a reason. They have gifts and talents others do not have. We should celebrate uniqueness, not uniformity.
