Powerful Words

Words are powerful. They can hurt or help, create or destroy, uplift or degrade. God used words to create the world, and authors use words to create books and other writings.

Having the power to influence others by word choice in writing is quite a responsibility, and one, as an author, I take seriously. And as a reader, there are a number of books that have influenced me for good. With that in mind, here is a list of the top 10 books that have had a positive influence on me:

10. The Five Love Languages - Gary Chapman
9. It's Just My Nature - Carol Tuttle
8. Standing For Something - Gordon B. Hinkley
7. Nourishing Traditions - Sally Fallon
6. Remembering Wholeness - Carol Tuttle
5. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families - Stephen R. Covey
4. All About Raising Children - Helen Andelin
3. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Stephen R. Covey
2. Fascinating Womanhood - Helen Andelin
1. The scriptures - Prophets of God

What are some of the books that you have read that have influenced you?

You had me until Fascinating Womanhood. I am glad you got something positive out of it, though.
