Spring Reading update

I thought I would give an update on the Spring Reading Challenge. My goal was to finish several books that I had started and had going at the same time. I started out well and have finished all but one of my original entries. But in the past two weeks I have started THREE new books. Why do I do that? I am not sure other than I am so anxious to get to each one so I dive in to all of them.

I finished One Home at a Time a couple weeks ago. Loved it. Had lots of confirmation and encouragement to be intentional in parenting and marriage. I think it should be required reading for any couple planning marriage or maybe starting their family. Maybe I should let my hubby know since he does the premarital counseling at our church.

I have started reading The Heavenly Man, Designing a Lifestyle that Pleases God, and Lies Women Believe. I am using Lies Women Believe in my personal study time.

Can I just say I love Nancy Leigh DeMoss? I think she is such an amazing no nonsense teacher. Her book Surrender was life impacting to me a few years ago. Short but very powerful book. Nancy holds no punches, she tells it just like it is. I don't know about you, but my think skull needs that kind of teaching.

So...hopefully I won't start anymore books before I get through these. We are leaving on vacation and I am tempted to read a fiction book while we are away. It is the only time I feel I can justify fiction. ;o)

I don't know how many books that I've started that are NOT ON MY LIST!! When you figure the why of that, tell me. LOL.

One Home at a Time sounds good.

I couldn't do without my fiction. I don't do TV and rarely watch movies so fiction is my "escape."
