What I am reading and what's next on my shelf!
Recently I just finished 'Become a better you' by Joel Osteen, which would have to be one of the most encouraging books I have ever read. I highly reccomend this book!
Right now I am reading 'The prayer of Jabez for Woman'. I think it was about 8 years ago when I first read just 'The prayer of Jabez' and received the revelation from the prayer and I know that God heard my hearts cry and truly did enlarge our territory. This book I picked up in our local antique shop for $3 and I was stoked. It's a powerful read!
Max Lucado's 'Fearless' I began to read before Christmas, but am only half way through. This book hasn't been (in my opinion) the best he has written, but the content is all truth and a stepping stone to pushing past any fears in your life.
Books next in line are ~
My research and study books are ~
I have been reading 'A Charlotte Mason Companion' over the last year and am only half way through! Karen writes so much, I tend to go back over alot until I truly grasp what she has written.
Mathematics has always interested me and I was so pleased to find this book!
Acoustic guitar is another one of my passions! I began teaching myself at the age of 16 with books. This beautiful study book I brought mainly for the history content about how the acoustic guitar was birthed! I have scheduled more music time into our homeschooling this year, so I am really hoping it works!
Last but certainly not least, 'The Love Dare' is sitting on my shelf and soon I am going to start. I have been holding off maybe because the selfish/fleshly side in me is stopping me! Let me tell you my conscience is very much alive and the Holy Spirit whispers in my heart every now and then saying "The Love Dare" and my spirit says "yes Lord", and my flesh says "umm, when I'm ready"! We all know God's timing is better than our timing. Really, I am looking forward to allowing the Lord to work in my life!
