Grand Canyon Presbyterian Women Reading List


All books from the reading list are in our church library. The criteria for the selection of the books are: to enlighten our minds, to nourish our spirits, to challenge our consciences, to entertain us.  As you choose which books you will read, we will hope we have met these goals, not all of them in one book, but in the whole of them.
