I did read Secure Daughters, Confident Sons and am partway through The Power of Focus by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt. Neither of those were on my list, however, so I’m determined to get back to scheduled reading in March.
However, my girls and I began reading Alone, Yet Not Alone: The Story of Barbara and Regina Leininger by Tracy Leininger, which was one of our read-aloud books for the year. It tells the story of two sisters who were kidnapped by Indians while living with their family in the mountains of Pennsylvania.
It was riveting reading! The author highlights the girls’ faith in God and how it gave them the strength they needed in their dire circumstances. My daughters and I had a hard time putting the book away each night since we wanted to find out what happened next. It is a compelling story that I think would be enjoyed by the entire family.
So what have you been reading lately? Be sure to share any great new books you’ve found!
