Since we settled back into our full homeschool routine in September, I've once again found my small blocks of time for reading each day. Most of the books I finished last month were good, informative reads.
- Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire With God, Not Food by Lysa TerKeurst. I enjoyed reading Lysa's perspective on how seeking God to meet all our needs can guide us into self-control in our eating.
- Home-Making: What the Bible Says About Roles and Relationships in a Harmonious Christian Household by Rev. J.R. Miller, D.D. This was a re-read.
- Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health by William Davis, M.D. Very thought-provoking look at what the consumption of wheat - in its current form - does to our bodies. He was a little technical for me in some spots, but overall, I learned a lot from this book.
- Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv. It took me quite awhile to work my way through this book, but I totally agree with its premise, which is to encourage our children to play outside and explore nature.
- In His Steps by Charles M. Sheldon. This was my first time reading this Christian classic and I found it challenging and encouraging.
- 101 Days of Christmas by Mandi Ehman
- A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet: Southern Stories of Faith, Family, and Fifteen Pounds of Bacon by Sophie Hudson
I finished reading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and Gentle Ben by Walt Morey aloud to my ten-year-old (and I often find that my twelve-year-old is listening, too!) We're now enjoying Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Have you read a good book lately?
