Although summer days are long, they don't leave much time for reading. I carefully select a few books to keep me company when I can no longer bear the heat. Limited time causes me to be more discriminating in my choices, which makes reading more enjoyable and beneficial.
Since last month,
~March (audio). Exquisite prose is the mark of this captivating story. I was hooked from the first pages.
~A Place for Weakness: Preparing Yourself for Suffering (Kindle). Michael Horton's insight on suffering and what it means for the Christian is outstanding.
~Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board. CJ wanted me to read this with her. An encouraging story, to say the least. Bethany Hamilton is a strong role model for young women.
~The Organized Heart: A Woman's Guide to Conquering Chaos (Kindle) This is a powerful book that is far from the ordinary "how to" organizing fare. Staci Eastin has spoken directly to my heart. While I've done much to improve the organization in my home the past few years, I've learned there are still some heart issues to be addressed.
~The Rural Life. I liked this book. I put it down because it's one that's easy to come back to. For some reason, I think of it as more of an Autumn read.
I've picked up:
~What Is a Healthy Church Member? (IX Marks). A short, but impressive read.
~Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. I'm just getting into this one.
I'll soon be starting:
~Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption (Audio). Just waiting for the library to get it to me!
~The Next Story: Life and Faith after the Digital Explosion. I'm pretty sure this one is going to be worth my while.
~The Help. I'm probably one of the last women in the country to read this book. I'm finally going to get around to it.
