Dramatic, I know. :) But of course, I was hormonal as well. Now I'm back, and thankful it was just a season. If you're in that season, please don't be hard on yourself.
|Squishy is way ahead of me on number of books read...:)|
4. Hinduism by H.L. Richard: Not yet.
5. Peace Child by Don Richardson: Not yet.
7. Competent To Counsel by Jay E. Adams: I started this, but then stalled when I hit my 1st trimester. Need to pick it back up.
8. Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois: Still eager to pick this up!
9. The Autobiography of George Muller by (you guessed it!) George Muller. Sitting on my shelf, waiting for me.
10. The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer: Not yet!
11. Sampson and the Pirate Monks: Calling Men to Authentic Brotherhood by Nate Larkin: Another book that I started (actually got over half-way through) and then put down during my 1st trimester. This book takes a super intense look at pornography (a huge problem in our culture and in the Christian church today) and the affect it can have in a person's life. My advice would be to talk to your husband before reading it, and if you do read it, do so prayerfully.
12. I left book #12 up in the air...so I'll fill you in on the other books that I have read so far this year. Just this month I read The Help by Kathryn Stockett and Loving The Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches by Rachel Jankovic (both were awesome!). I've also started Against the Tide: The Story of Watchman Nee by Angus Kinnear and The Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson.
So far, that's 7 books out of 12...I'm only one book behind my original goal!
Reading is difficult to fit in during this time of life (mothering tiny ones and all that involves), but I know I want to make it a priority. Even if it's just 10-15 minutes a day. Or 5. I'm glad I made this list at the beginning of the year to help keep me accountable (it works for me).
Do you have a reading list? Or a book you're eager to get your hands on? Would love to hear in the comments....
