What are you reading?

Hey out there.  It is snowing and cold here in Ky.  The kids have been off 3 days this week.  Phoebe has had so much fun playing in the snow.  She was making snow angels yesterday.  As I sit here and write, she and Elliott are out there sledding in the backyard. 

So, I just finished a great book and wanted to see what you all were reading or wanted to read.  I really enjoy reading.  I don’t get much time to do it, but it does give me a respite from the daily life.  The book I just finished was “When Women Walk in Faith” by Lysa Terkeurst.  I love to highlight things in books that take me into deep thought or convict me.  This book is so highlighted!  It is great.  It walks you through the 5 steps of walking in faith.  If you have a list going of books to read in 2010, put this one on it.   

So, what’s on your list to read in 2010?  Are you gearing up to dive deep into God’s word with a bible study?  Do you have a favorite author?  When do you find time to read? 

Our women’s bible study is going to be starting “Experiencing God.”  I did this study when I was pregnant with Natalie back in 1999 (which I was on bed rest and while at study had to sit in a lawn chair that reclined)  so I really don’t remember alot about it.  I am eagerly anticipating the adventure Jesus has in store for me during this particular study!  I am sure it will be one not to forget. 

Well, I am off to get something warm to drink and see how the gang is outside.  Bet there will be some kind of snowman or fort built.  We have around 5 inches of snow and it is flurrying.  Oh, how do you like the new look of the blog.  I just love the colors…they are me.  I have been going through this journey of rediscovering who I am, what I like and don’t like.  I recently had the epiphany that I am a people pleaser and would make decisions based on if someone else would like it or not.  Would they think I was weird, judge me or change their view of  me.  Instead of being the person God created me to be I would be like a chameleon with whoever I was with.  This is a topic I would love to dive deeper in future posts.   If you have insight or are reading this thinking that sounds like me, let me know.

    I do like the colors of the blog. Tell Elliott nice job. I might need to paint my dining room brown and yellow. hmmm.

    I am reading the parenting book, Good and Angry by Turansky. I am also half way through Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust by Immaculee Ilibagiza.

    As far as devotional reading, I want to work through Streams in the Desert during my quiet time. And, I haven’t figured out what bible study I’ll be doing next. I am getting my journal realigned for 2010 and moving my 2009 stuff aside.

    I have been trying to listen to podcasts. The latest I have been listening to is Matt Chandler from the Village in Texas. He was just diagnosed with a brain tumor at Thanksgiving. His sermons are amazing and I try to listen while I am cooking dinner, doing my makeup or walking on the treadmill.
