Grace

Grace

On 12/4 Carlyn Canady wrote: Considering I think I have almost every inspirational book Max Lucado has written, I thought his new book on Grace would be a good one to focus on.

Let's Do Lunch

On 8/28 Carlyn Canady wrote: I saw this title and I jumped at the chance to read this book.

Billy

Billy

On 9/15 Carlyn Canady wrote: An amazing biography of a man so many people in the world today idolize. He is upheld as a man of God, closer to God than anyone today in most people’s books.
