What I’m Reading

  • I just finished up Elyse Fitzpatrick’s daily devotional, Comforts From the Cross.  It has about a page and a half per day for thirty days and is surprisingly meaty for a devotional.  As you may expect from the title, this book centers around Gospel meditation.
  • For my dose of fiction recently, I have begun rereading The Lord of the Rings.  It’s been a few years since I’ve read them.  Maybe next time I read them, there will be some boys reading alongside me?
  • Erin and I are working our way through Piper’s recent book called Think.  I have found it more approachable than his earlier work.  Am I getting used to his style or is he getting easier to read?
  • Our women’s summer Bible study is going through CJ Mahaney’s Cross-Centered Life together.  This is a re-read for me but it’s well worthwhile.  Very short but pithy — full of good content.
  • I also recently picked up Mary’s books:  Family Feasts for $75 a Week and A Sane Woman’s Guide to Raising a Large Family.  I appreciate her example in creativity and humor.
  • David is reading Do Hard Things with hopes that we might work through it with our teens in our Sunday School class.  He is enjoying it more than he expected to.
