Since we settled back into our full homeschool routine in September, I’ve once again found my small blocks of time for reading each day. Most of the books I finished last month were good, informative reads.
- Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire With God, Not Food by Lysa TerKeurst. I enjoyed reading Lysa’s perspective on how seeking God to meet all our needs can guide us into self-control in our eating.
- Home-Making: What the Bible Says About Roles and Relationships in a Harmonious Christian Household by Rev. J.R. Miller, D.D. This was a re-read.
- Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health by William Davis, M.D. Very thought-provoking look at what the consumption of wheat – in its current form – does to our bodies. He was a little technical for me in some spots, but overall, I learned a lot from this book.
- Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv. It took me quite awhile to work my way through this book, but I totally agree with its premise, which is to encourage our children to play outside and explore nature.
- In His Steps by Charles M. Sheldon. This was my first time reading this Christian classic and I found it challenging and encouraging.
- 101 Days of Christmas by Mandi Ehman
- A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet: Southern Stories of Faith, Family, and Fifteen Pounds of Bacon by Sophie Hudson
I finished reading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and Gentle Ben by Walt Morey aloud to my ten-year-old (and I often find that my twelve-year-old is listening, too!) We’re now enjoying Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Have you read a good book lately?
I need to read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with my children; I think they would love it! Some of your other books sound interesting, too.
I remember my grandmother having The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe at her house when I was a child. I flipped through it, but I've never been interested in fantasy-type books, so it didn't really catch my interest.
However, I decided to read it aloud to my 10-year-old (partly since I'd never read it myself) and ended up thoroughly enjoying it! My 12-year-old said she'd looked at it before, but wasn't interested in hearing it. Ha – not only did she end up listening to it, she got all the other books in the series from the library!!
"A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet" sounds like a topic I'd enjoy! 😉 😀
