December’s Reads

If you know me in real life or have been reading here for any period of time, you know I love to read! Almost as much as the reading, I enjoy sharing what I am reading. Each month, I share online articles I have enjoyed, a list of the books that I am currently working through, and maybe some other things I am enjoying this month.

There is no particular order to my shares, but I hope that you will enjoy reading them as I have and maybe you will find a new to you resource to enjoy and use in your purpose filled living.

Resources for Simple Living at No Sidebar: because I’m a sucker for a list and one that deals with simple living resources?!? even more!

Prayer for When Life Moves Too Fast: because I think Emily wrote this prayer post just for me

Be Still, My Soul: The silent we hear is at times as important and life-giving as the words and music we hear.

Staying Sane While Homemaking: Because sometimes a reminder to keep is simple is the best reminder. I went looking for a new formula and instead found what I already knew and just needed reminding.

Book Reading

Nine Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage: Because a Great Relationship Doesn’t Happen by Accident, Shelia Wray Gregoire: came to me recommended and has interesting and helpful ideas. You can see my review comments at GoodReads

Longing for Paris: One Woman’s Search for Joy, Beauty, and Adventure–Right Where She Is, Sarah Mae: Right now I don’t have all the words to express how much I enjoyed this book. Definitely a re-read and I hope to do a book review on it in the near future.

The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek, Jane Meyers Perrine: my fun fictional read this month. An enjoyable book and worth pursuing the other stories in the series.

The Kissing Hand, Audrey Penn: I have wanted to read this children’s book for years since it was first recommended by my daughter’s preschool teacher. Since my little man is having a hard time with going to preschool, I finally checked it out on our e-reader and read it with him. So sweet, and a great resource for helping your kids deal with being away from you.

50 People Every Christian Should Know: Learning from Spiritual Giants of the Faith, Warren Wiersbe: This book has been my go to read for before bed. Interesting reading and yet it does not get my brain processing so much that I find it hard to turn off and go to sleep, plus history!

The Thompson-Chain Reference Study Bible-KJV: I am working on reading through the Bible in entirety this year, and for the first time in the many times I have begun this process I really believe I am going to finish!

Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, Mason Currey: I am curious how others live their lives and this one came recommended.

Quotable Quotes: on the outlook for some good quotes to share.

Other things I’ve enjoyed this month

Influence Network teaching: This network of ladies‘ have the motto to equip women in their passions and projects in the places where there are. I enjoy the reality they emphasis, their heart for the gospel in everything and their deep desire to keep Christ at the center of what they do regardless of what it may be. The classes that I have been able to take via the Network this past month have been a wonderful reset to my thinking.
