One of the goals of my 28th year of life is to finish every book I start. For some of you this seems like a silly goal, but for me...it will be a full on change of life. I love reading, so I get into a multitude of books but I am so bad about finishing them. I get the gist and move on...but not any more.
I decided to start with a longer more exhaustive book. It was three fold why I chose the first book. 1) to avoid getting baby brain again. I decided to fight it by reading theology while breastfeeding instead of letting my mind melt into mush and let me just say...so far it worked! 2) I picked it because it was long so all other books seem conquerable and 3) our pastor was teaching a series based out of the concepts of this book.
So the first book for me to finish in my 28th year of life is Knowing God by J.I. Packer.
The second book I've finished is Feminine Appeal: Seven Virtues of A Godly Wife and Mother by Carolyn Mahaney.
To every wife and mom, I would HIGHLY recommend this book. It is so great. Easy to read, much to think about. I was challenged and encouraged. This is a great book to do in a book club or study group. It comes with discussion questions. I plan to read it again.
Next up Worship Matter by Bob Kauflin
and Instructing a Child's Heart by Ted Tripp
