Booking it! – September

Booking it! – September



I have recently (thankfully) been able to get back into reading, which is my first love! I was the child who snuck flashlights under her pillow so she could sneak in a couple of extra hours of reading after bedtime! A little sad, I know, but there’s just something about books!

If ever I have a problem, an issue, or just something that I can’t seem to conquer, I run to a bookstore (or Amazon, as my children more easily permit me). I feel better just knowing that I have a book in my hand, ready to pass on the knowledge I’m seeking! I pine for old favorites like old friends that I haven’t seen in years, because books don’t change no matter how long it’s been! I’m never disappointed, no matter what I’m seeking!

So, this month, I’ve been reading a few wonderful books!

First, Love and Respect by Dr Emmerson Eggerichs.

I cannot tell you enough how much I DID NOT want to open this book. I’m not even entirely sure why, but I tried a few times, I’ve even had the darn thing for about 8 months now, and I just did not want to open it! You’d think the book weighed hundreds of pounds as hard as it was for me to finally force myself to open the cover, but open it I did. I’m not done with it yet, but I have to say that, as hard as it is for me to read sometimes, this book has some serious wisdom. It’s worth prying that cover open and taking a look!

I’m also reading this awesome book called ‘A Mother’s Rule of Life: How to Bring Order to Your Home and Peace to Your Soul’ by Holly Pierlot.

This one, God dropped into my lap, literally! Some of my friends had just started a study of this book (which I’d never heard of), and I said I couldn’t go because I didn’t have anyone to watch my kids and a book study is NOT something you can do with small children! Well, that was on Friday, and on Sunday, I opened one of my birthday presents and there was the book! I hadn’t mentioned anything about the book or about the study to anyone, but there it was, right there in my lap, dropped by God Himself and lovingly wrapped by my mother-in-law!

This book is a gem! I don’t know how well I will be able to implement all of the things that she talks about, but I am beginning to see that my priorities weren’t in line with the ones that my vocation requires. I love this book!

Anyway, that’s what I’m reading this month!
