Christian celebrity memoirs

Sometimes these are rich and meaningful. Sometimes they're just fun, easy reads. Either way, I've surprised myself with how many of these I've read and I thought I'd share them here today.

20 and Counting... I loved watching the Duggar family when they were on TV. None of these books dive into the scandal but Jinger's book lightly mentions it. (Also check out A Love That Multiplies, Growing Up Duggar, and The Hope We Hold)

Box of Butterflies... I have been following Roma Downey since I'm excitedly waiting to see the Baxters TV show air. This book doesnt talk about that but I really enjoyed learning about her and now I'm excited to try out Touched by an Angel, too! 

Courage to Soar... This is Simone Biles' Olympian origin story. I listened to the audio book and I thoroughly enjoyed it! 

I Can Only Imagine... This is the powerful story of MercyMe frontrunner Bart Millard and his father overcoming addiction. Loved it and loved the movie! I also love the song. 

First Things First... I read this memoir by Arizona Cardinals' Kurt and Brenda Warner while living in Arizona, I believe in 2010. I was fascinated by their big family systems and I'm excited to check out American Underdog

The Magnolia Story... I really enjoyed watching Fixer Upper and have enjoyed all three of the Gaines' grown-up books. (Also check out Capital Gaines and No Pain, No Gaines)

Soul Surfer... Bethany Hamilton was attacked by a shark while surging a lost her arm. Her faith story is so powerful! 

Strong & Kind... I never actually loved Duck Dynasty but I've still enjoyed quite a few of the Robertson family's books, especially Strong & Kind. (Also check out Blessed, Blessed, Blessed; The Good, the Bad and the Grace of God; The Women of Duck Commander; Young and Beardless)
