I didn’t read quite as many books this month as I did in January, but I still made it through a good number of them.
These first three were from my 2012 reading list.
- Teen-Proofing: Fostering Responsible Decision Making in Your Teenager by John Rosemond. While I am a John Rosemond fan and have read nearly all of his books, this was not one of my favorites. I do, however, appreciate the importance he places on developing responsibility in your teen’s life.
- The Master’s Indwelling by Andrew Murray. This was okay, though I didn’t get as much from it as I did the Tozer books I read last month.
- Folks, This Ain’t Normal by Joel Salatin. After reading about this modern-day farmer in Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma, I wanted to learn more about him. This book provided that opportunity. I got bogged down in a few spots, but overall found it informative and educational.
- The Great Physician’s RX for Health and Wellness: Seven Keys to Unlock Your Health Potential by Jordan Rubin. This was an excellent book on improving your overall health. I think it’s one that I need to re-read periodically.
- Get the Sugar Out: 501 Simple Ways to Cut the Sugar Out of Any Diet by Ann Louise Gittleman. Yes, the title of this book spoke to me! It’s filled with common sense tips for eliminating sugar from your diet
- Fat Families, Thin Families: How to Save Your Family from the Obesity Trap by Amy Hendel. Notice a theme here??? While this book gave practical ways to help improve your family’s health, very little of it was new to me.
The girls and I finished reading Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorensen and John Newton: Letters of a Slave Trader Freed by God’s Grace. We’re partway through What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge and The Story of the Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp, which are both great reads!
