quote taken from The Cost of Discipleshipby Dietrich Bonhoeffer. This is a deep book, which I am reading slowly. There are so many good passages I’ve copied into my commonplace book, but this is the one that resonated with me recently.
What I’m Reading Now:
My husband added this one (which he just finished):
Child 44by Tom Rob Smith. Whether I’ll get to it or not, I don’t know. (And for those of you keeping count, this makes two novels my husband has finished and then added to my stack in the past week or so. I’m starting to wonder if we’ve reversed roles.)
Last night I finished (and yes, I stayed up too late doing so!):
All the Light We Cannot See: A Novelby Anthony Doerr. Short take: I loved it. Lyrical, moving, and written in very short chapters so it’s easy to read a bit at a time. (Does contain some graphic language, used by soldiers, and intense scenes since it’s set in WW2.)
You can find an up to date list of the books I’ve finished on this page: Books of 2015.
Recent Kindle Additions:
I picked this one up when it was free, but I haven’t read it yet:
The Friendships of Women: The Beauty and Power of God’s Plan for Usby Dee Brestin.
I read this one on my Kindle via the Overdrive App (something that works with our library):
Pulling Back the Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and the Longings of a Woman’s Heartby Dr. Juli Slattery and Dannah Gresh. I heard them on the Family Life today program on Monday and knew I wanted to read this. I hesitate to call it a book: I finished it in one afternoon, so I think it’s more of a booklet or long form article, but it was excellent and I recommend it. Even if you would never in a million years read the “grey” books, many women you know probably have or have considered it. Even if you’ve simply wondered why this is such a big deal, this might help.
Current Read Aloud
The 7 year old and I have started this one:
Sarah, Plain and Tallby Patricia MacLachlan. This one was my choice but I think she’s enjoying it. The older girls have already read it.
Current Book to Review
Look for my review of Make it Happen: Surrender Your Fear. Take the Leap. Live On Purpose.by Lara Casey on Friday.
