A New Hobby...

READING!!! Yes, I have started reading and actually enjoying it! This is a big surprise to myself because just a short while ago I would not read unless my life depended on it! I certainly didn't do it for fun. But... recently I have really gotten into this reading thing. I have been inspired by other blogs to "mix it up" a little, and I just thought I could maybe spark someone else's interest in slipping in a few minutes of reading during their VERY busy days of motherhood! I have found it to be extremely relaxing and enjoyable. So here are a few of my latest favorites...



These two books by Elizabeth George have been very good. They are easy reads and very applicable to our everyday lives. God has taught me numerous lessons about marriage and family through these books. The "lessons" have been an encouragement and a challenge! Another one of hers to add to the list is A Woman After God's Own Heart.

Thanks to my sweet friend Robin from Bible Study, I had the pleasure of reading this book. It is awesome!

This book was our "study guide" for our last Bible Study. If you haven't read it, trust me it is an "eye-opener"!

I am currently reading this one. So far, so good.

P.S. I meant to add The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian. VERY GOOD!!

Those all look like great books. I hope to get to read for enjoyment again when I finish graduate school. I really can't wait to read Kate Gosselin's new book, MULTIPLE BLES8INGS.....I love Jon and Kate Plus 8!

Beth, it blesses my heart to see your reading material and to know you want to share the joy you've experienced from their contents. Watching you makes my heart swell with gratefulness for what the Lord has done in your heart and life! I LOVE YOU, Mama
