What's On My Nightstand - September
As the dog-days of summer come to a close (Lord, please let them come to a close!), I'm looking forward to spending evenings tucked under my favorite blanket with these:
~Raising Girls (currently reading). I'm reading this at the recommendation of a friend who's got a girl a few months older than CJ. At first I was skeptical about what insight two women who aren't mothers could offer, but I'm actually learning a lot. As the mother of a pre-teen girl, I need all the help I can get.
~Women's Ministry in the Local Church (currently reading). I can't wait to start blogging about this one at Offering Hospitality next month. Very convicting read about our role as women in the local church, even for those of us who aren't on the women's ministry team. As a deacon's wife, I'm finding it extremely helpful.
~Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cure (currently reading). Lisa's posted several excerpts that piqued my curiosity about this series of sermons from the 1960s. I'm only in the second chapter, but I'm already finding it relevant for believers today. I'm sure I'll be blogging about this book in the coming weeks.
~Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild. (to read). I've had this one in my stack for a while, but after hearing Mary Kassian on the Revive Our Hearts program this week, I'm moving it to the top of my list.
~Surprised by Grace: God's Relentless Pursuit of Rebels (to read). I'll be joining some good bloggy friends to discuss this one in September...wait for the surprise announcement.
~The Last Song (to read). We watched the movie this weekend, and CJ is eager to read the book. I'm screening it before allowing her to read. Has anyone else read this? Your thoughts? (I've enabled comments on this post).
What are you reading these days? Leave a comment. Better yet, write your own list & link it to 5 Minutes for Books.
