The 5 Love Languages
by Dr. Gary Chapman
Lili Note: This book can also change your life and instantly have you understanding your Loved One’s like never before. If you only read two books this year – read these two.
Lili Note: The Book of Common Prayer is the Prayerbook used by those in the Episcopal Church. It has all the majory services, including Morning and Evening Prayer, and my personal favorite service, Compline which is the service for the very end of your day. It inlcudes all of the Psalms, the Collects, and is a wonderful resource for guidance, strength, and hope.

Lili Note: This book is here so that you can get a book to refer to if you become interested in exploring other faiths. I own it and like it a lot.
Great Books to Read Out Loud to Your Loved One
Lili Note: This series is wonderful on all levels. It can be taken on a spiritual level or as an incredible adventure story. Either way it is some of the most imaginative writing that happened last century. These were our late father’s favorite set of books and have been mine since I read them as a child. Each book is a complete story unto itself. Not only will your Loved One love hearing the adventures in the seven books but will be thoroughly entertained as well.
Lili Note: A beautiful classic loved by young and old alike, and yes, another family favorite.
Lili Note: If your Loved One is nonverbal, or has cognitive issues this is the book to read to them. This is the complete tales so there are many stories to read out loud and all of them gentle.
Lili Note: This is another wonderful children’s classic that your Loved One may have read growing up. They are wonderful books full of whimsy and fun and will likely be enjoyed by anyone who retains medium cognitive abilities. They will love listening to all the fun and magical adventures of Mary Poppins.
Lili Note: Now if your Loved One was a Nancy Drew fan back in the day you can keep them happy for quite some time. Much to my surprise, there are 163 books in the series! If they get bored easily Nancy Drew just might be the ticket! This link takes you to the series page on Amazon. You can get the first 12 for free with Kindle Unlimited, or purchase various combinations of different parts of the series as well.
Lili Note: Of course we must include the Hardy Boys for the men in the crowd! There are 58 books in this series and this link takes you to the first 10 in a boxed set.
Lili Note: Kyle Gray is one of them most amazing spiritual teachers I have come across. He has a special connection with Angels. He is very approachable, and his books are easy to read and understand. If you are having a hard time but don’t know how to pray, this book should be the answer to your prayers
Lili Note: This is the prayer book that I refer to in my Guidebook. It has morning and evening prayer and compline service to say at the end of the evening.
