I started this post back at the beginning of February and now the month is half way over. I wanted to update you on the books that I am reading. I had made a goal for myself, at the beginning of the year to read 52 books. My book list for January, I am almost finished with them. I am still working on Desperate – Hope For The Mom Who Needs to Breathe. I will also begin The Mom Walk when I finish Desperate.
Most of the books I have chosen next to read, are study guides and books that I can read to help me mentor, help and encourage other women. God has laid on my heart Titus 2:3-5. I feel like He is leading me in the direction to help and train younger women/moms. Lord willing and with much prayer, I gain a little more knowledge, along with courage and strength to do as God is leading me. I am also hoping I can figure out how to do this as well. What books have I chosen to read to learn more from, besides the Bible?
I am also doing a bible study by Elizabeth George called by Loving God with All Your Mind.
All of my books just isn’t for studying though. I added in a few books for fun and enjoyment. I love books that are based in the 1800′s time period. I love just reading and slipping away to a time period long gone. When, in some ways life was a little simpler, yet they still had issues just like we do today. While the stories are made up, I can still imagine life back in time.
I also came across another book about the Oregon Trail. It is Where the Trail Ends by Melanie Dobson. It is set in 1841, so I am sure it will be a nice read.
The last book in this list is A Patchwork Christmas Collection. This book has 3 stories in it along with recipes and handcraft patterns. I am hoping to learn to crochet and knit, so this book looked interesting to me. I have already read the first story in the book and it was pretty good. Looking forward to finishing the other two books in this collection.
As you can tell, I do love to read. It isn’t unusual for me to be reading several books at one time. I love to mix the serious and fun books up. This is the way I like to wind down and relax after a long day or, if I just want to take some time off.
What are you reading now? What type of books do you like to read?
