Reading Plan Check In


I've been surprised at how enthralled I've become in this book. Had you told me a couple of years ago that I'd be reading something like this--and enjoying it--I would have laughed! But I came across it while in LifeWay and confronted myself with the embarrassing fact that I know little to nothing about faithful women of the past. So, I thought it'd be worth the $10 investment. And it is. (In case you can't read the small print, these are biographies over Corrie Ten Boom, Amy Carmichael, Florence Nightengale, and Sojourner Truth.)

I've also been going through Numbers. Wow, what was I thinking, choosing such a dry book to start the year off? Is that okay to say? Seriously--so far, it's all about formality and where the tribes should camp around the tent of meeting. I am learning something, though. Mostly how grateful I am that God does not still require such ritualistic obedience and worship. It's certainly making me more thankful for the cross. (Psalms is a relief to read after Numbers, I tell ya!)

So, that's how my reading is going so far. How's yours?

Peace of Christ to you,


  1. That book sounds really interesting... I may have to check it out once my pink eye goes away and I can actually see :)

  2. Oh no! I wondered where you were yesterday. Hope it gets better fast!

  3. Reading is my life! The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom is really an excellent read.

    I just finished The Undaunted about the Mormon Pioneers who settled a desert area in southern Utah by carving a road in the most precarious land in the country.

    Finished "Into Thin Air" by Jon Krauer about the Everest disaster.

    Just because you asked, check out "Left to Tell," any book about William Tyndale (translated the bible to English and was persecuted because of it), and I could come up with more.

    At the bottom of my blog I have a Shelfari widget. Just some ideas.
