Since I spend much more time reading than blogging, I decided to post every so often about books that I am reading. I am hopeful you will post some good reads too. If given a few extra minutes, I am usually reading or sewing. Some of my blog readers are blogging, and it is easy to see, that gets to the bottom of my list. One of the reasons it takes me so long to knit is because a few minutes of quiet could also be used to read. But, on a side note, I finally finished knitting a washrag called, "Last Night's Dishcloth," and I can tell you it took MONTHS to finish it!
For Personal development I am reading Seasons of a Mother's Heart by Sandy Clarkson. This book deals with motherhood, homeschooling and marriage in a hopeful, encouraging manner.
For Educational Development I am reading The History of the Ancient World by Susan Wise Bauer. We are studying the ancients this year, and I am plugging through this 800 pager.
For Theological Development I am reading No Place for Truth or Whatever Happened to Evangelical Theology? by David Wells. RC Sproul Jr. recommended this book. It is a deep book, and somewhat slow in the first third, but is an excellent treatise on how we got to where we are as evangelicals. It is the first book in a five book series.
For Spiritual Development I am reading Believing God by RC Sproul Jr. I got it free because we are part of the Highlands Study Center, "You Get Everything." It has many foundational truths that we say we believe, but often do not live like we believe.
For the children's morning devotions we are doing "The Put On Chart" by Pam Forster at Doorposts. This study is based on Colossians 3:12-14. She has provided paper dolls for each of the parts of clothing to dress the doll as you learn compassion, meekness, forebearance, etc.
Now you tell me: What are you reading and why? I always have room on my booklist for another book!
