I’m reading A Memory of Violets, Hazel Gaynor … period fiction … excellent so far!KarenParticipant
I’m re-reading Andreola’s Pocketful of Pinecones.sherazParticipant
Just finished The Right Side of Normal by Carol Gaddis and almost finished with Caught Up in a Story by Sarah Clarkson. Both are interesting and encouraging in their own way.
I am debating about which to start of these: Your Child’s Strengths by Jenifer Fox, Discover Your Child’s Learning Styles by Mariaemma Willis and Victoria Kindle Hodson, and Good Music, Brighter Children by Sharlene Habermeyer next.
For more leisurely reading, I have been revisiting some of my Louis L’Amour books. 😉
Teaching from Rest by Sarah MacKenziesherazParticipant
I appreciated Teaching From Rest. Have you listened to the audio interviews yet?
Not yet, Sheraz. Next weekend is our co-op’s annual A Time Apart retreat for co-op moms. Teaching from Rest book, journal, and audio is part of our participant gift and we are going to use it for devotional times. We won’t finish it, but it will be a good start. I’m hoping to finish my reading and the audio before the retreat or at least the parts we will get to while there.Melanie32Participant
I’m reading No Ordinary Home by Carol Brazo. It’s book about Christ-Centered homemaking. I just started it but am enjoying it so far.
I’m also rereading the Anne of Green Gables series. My daughter and I read the first 2 together and she didn’t want to go on because of the romance factor. 🙂 So, I decided to carry on by myself.
I just added The Imitation Of Christ by Thomas a Kempis to my morning devotion books. It’s wonderful.
I’m halfway through And the Shofar Blew by Francine Rivers. It’s a very thought provoking book.RobinPParticipant
The audios are excellent, Christie. The one with Andrew Kern was SO good! I need to listen again. I’m reading the Anne series again as well. Trying to listen to Pride and Prejudice but I admit to not digging it. (blush…) Also reading Tending a Heart of Virtue in prep for CMI and Folks, this ain’t normal by Joel Salatin. 🙂KarenParticipant
And the Shofar Blew is one of my favorite books! I really think all young pastors ought to read it.
And Robin, I enjoy Joel Salatin, too. It’s a shame our farm is a conventional dairy with too much debt to make the switch. 🙁
I just picked up Across America on an Emigrant Train by Jim Murphy at a book sale. He used Robert Louis Stevenson’s journals and other documents and pictures to make a very interesting book. I thoroughly enjoyed it!Melanie32Participant
Robin-how funny that we are reading it at the same time. 🙂 Anne is one of my all time favorite characters from literature.
Karen-I agree! I think maybe all pastors should read it-young and old. Mrs. Rivers has quite a lot of insight into how churches are run. I found this book at a used library sale and it’s been a timely one for me. I have really enjoyed all of Francine River’s books that I have read so far. The only problem is that I don’t want to put them down once I start!greenebaltsParticipant
Life’s been so busy here, I forgot about this post!
Heather, I still think about Hester on occasion 😉
Since last posting, I’ve finished O Pioneers! by Willa Cather…which should be titled Oh MY!! I loved this story, but was utterly shocked by the ending. Here are some thoughts…
And, if you have not read Quo Vadis?, you must!! A friend and I read it at the same time and then met weekly, while our kids were in choir and art, to discuss it. It is fabulous!! I think everyone should read this book, though not until upper high school and adulthood…
Can you tell I’m passionate about books 😉
If anyone is interested, the interview with Andrew Kern we spoke of above is also available on the Circe website. This is a bonus audio when you buy the Teaching from Rest ebook but you can listen at the link above.Mysterious Lady in PinkParticipant
Meant to post this the other day when I saw Teaching from Rest mentioned, but I found a coupon code of for it — “alwaysamanda” — which saved a few dollars on the bundle.
I’m also reading Boyhood and Beyond by Bob Schultz aloud with my ds11. This was a book for him, but wow, it is pertinent to all ages thus far. Every time we read it, it so happens the issue is one we’ve either dealt with or discussed otherwise. This book is awesome and convicting. Love it!alphabetikaParticipant
I just finished a CM trio – Consider This, The Living Page, and When Children Love to Learn. I’m also reading the original series this year and have just started the 2nd book. Though I have always HSed with CM sensibilities, if that makes sense, and I’ve read several books *about* CM philosophy, I have never read the original series until know.
I’m also reading books about ducks, because we just got two ducklings a month ago. And I just got a book about making cheese, which I’ve never tried.
And I’m trying to read Psalms a great deal right now, just because I love them and they speak to me. And Ecclesiastes, because our pastor is going through it in his sermons.
I’ve also recently read some books to my 5yo that I never read to my older girls (16 and 21 – the 21yo is the one in my avatar, though she was much younger then) and I’ve really enjoyed them. One is Peter Pan, which my husband read to my olders but I had never actually read. My daughter loves it so much that I’ve read it to her twice at her request, after my husband read it to her the first time. Another is Linnets and Valerians by Elizabeth Goudge.
