Books are becoming more meaningful to me as more of my children encounter the joy of reading. My oldest has a tower of books on his dresser to match the towers by my bed. He stays up late reading every night and then we chat about our favorites during the day.
Speaking of book towers…do you want to know what I’ve been reading? Well, I am still savoring some from the past few months but I have begun some new ones:
I am listening to Wild and Free, an inspirational book about homeschooling. Even if you don’t have homeschooling in your future, it’s a great perspective on treasuring the childhood years of your children. I am getting all sorts of ideas from it.
The children and I are savoring The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder and are grateful for the plenty in our kitchen (and the sun!)
Gentle and Lowly is perfect for the Easter season since it is about the very heart of Christ. He absolutely loves His children: it is who He is! Nothing can separate us from that love. This time of year it feels even more tangible.
Finally, I am reading a delightful book on backyard farming and am itching to try it all out. And what better time with prices rising the way they are?
Those are the highlights. Of course, there are a million pages read in between but those are the books I pick up when I have some time to spare. 😉
