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!
What have you been reading?
Linked to Life as Mom’s Booking It in 2012.
I started a series by Francine Rivers. In the middle of Tamar (the first of five) and enjoying it. I've also got Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption on my list and am hoping to borrow it soon.

I read a few e-book, because they were free hehe (all about mothering and christian parenting ect..) since I'm barefoot we can't make it to the library anymore, but I did have someone let me borrow her copy of "The Help" this was my first "fiction" book that I read in years!!! I really enjoyed it 🙂
The von Trapp book sounds very interesting. I'll have to check it out!
As big a fan as I am of The Sound of Music, I can't believe I've never read this book. Though we've only read the first few chapters so far, it's very entertaining – despite being somewhat different from the movie.
Great list! I think I need to read the one about cutting out sugar!!!! 🙂
Popping over from Booking It and wanted to say hello. Sounds like you've got some interesting books there, but the VonTrapp book really interests me. Might have to look that one up!
That is quite the list. Your post reminded me I have had Miracles on Maple Hill sitting on my desk since Christmas.
