What I’m Reading…

I enjoy writing book reviews on what I’m reading these days and had planned to write one today. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a finished book for today so instead I’ll give you a glimpse into what I’m currently reading.

I did finish To Kill a Mockingbird a few weeks ago but I didn’t write about it since it was a re-read and I figured pretty much all of us are familiar with the story. It is such a rich narrative with layers of meaning and symbolism from start to finish. I will read it many more times for life’s experiences have a way of drawing out the depth in a story.

I did a revisit of my HypnoBirthing book and am also reading the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding from La Leche League. I know I’ve been doing this for seven years but there’s always something new to learn. It’s good to add to my mental resources so I can review them later on. Both books are gently written and inspire me to live slowly with my children.

Teaching From Rest is also on my nightstand. I am reading it years after I purchased it. Now seemed like the right time to pick it up since school is getting more demanding and I want to maintain a consistently peaceful atmosphere in our home. The author’s personality sounds similar to mine when it comes to needing to balance task productivity and investing in people. I’ve already been able to be more restful thanks to what I’ve read so far.

I have 3 chapters left in Mama Bear Apologetics in addition to the study guide I’m doing with it. This is well worth the read and is clarifying much of the chaos and confusion happening in our country right now. I want to be able to break down the philosophies surrounding us into Chile-sized explanations. This book helps me do it.

Finally, I’m reading Adorned for spiritual enrichment. Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth works through Titus 2 and breaks it down sentence by sentence for practical living. It’s wonderful! The chapters are lengthy but inspiring and convicting. They pair well with devotional time.

That’s all, Folks! I try to rotate old book friends with new ones so when I wrap these up I begin a new blending of personal enrichment and leisure books. Some will be old friends and some new. What’s on your book shelf?
