Even though it’s difficult for me I have found that I write better if I read regularly. When I say it’s hard, I mean it’s HARD, but I am going to get through these 10 books this year (and maybe more).
just so you know - I have added a clickable link to each title. If you click on the title of each book it will take you to Amazon for more details.
Raw Faith by Kasey Van Norman: If you have been around me in the last two and half years you know my love for Kasey. This is the Texans’ (thought I’d throw that in there) second book.
The Best Yes by Lysa Terkeurst: I have two other books by Lysa that I still haven’t finished not saying anything against her writing - it has more to do with me. I really hope to finish this one!
The Five Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell: The original Five Love Languages book was a life changer for me. This one will be read during a bible study with other parents.
Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I’ve owned this book twice. I may have bought back my copy at Half Priced Books and it’s been on my shelf since 2011. When I found it was part of our women’s bible study I jumped on the chance to join. Yes! I’ll finally get through this book!
Move On by Vicki Courtney: As I am typing this I just got up and looked through my library (seriously we have the begins of a library in our bedroom) to find Vicki’s other book I haven’t finished, but so need to: Five Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter - the book that scared the pooh out of me, but I really need to finish it and blog about it, so I am now at 11 books, right?
Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham: Since I have a thing for Gilmore Girls and Parenthood I though I try out Lauren Graham’s writing.
Mended by Angie Smith: I have not read any of Angie’s book yet, but I am very familiar with her teachings and am excited to read this one (and more of her’s).
Let’s All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs: This has been on my wish list for a the past year.
And these two I pre-ordered with my Amazon Giftcard (thank you mom and dad!)
Home is Where My People are by Sophie Hudson: I absolutely loved Sophie’s first book and am surprised I haven’t blogged about it (may have to). It’s a great book.
Nobody’s Cuter than You by Melanie Shankle: As you may remember I was put on the “bad” list at the public library for having Melanie’s last book way over my due date and wracking up a late fee of close to $8. I just could not part with it - I loved it. I also fell in love with her first book a few years ago. So excited for this one (have a made that statement a few times in the post?). Oh, did I mention she’s also from Texas? I have to support my Texas writers.
So, as you can see if you are in doubt of a gift to give me, give me a book. You can also tell I mainly read Christian blogger, writers and speakers. It’s my passion. Maybe someday a book by Dana Bahn will be on someones yearly reading list. Now off to read, um I mean clean the house - if Matt’s reading this I seriously don’t read all day (I do watch just a little Gilmore Girls, but only while folding laundry of course).
