Wrensday: What I'm Reading Right Now

Yup, it's Thursday and I'm just now posting Wrensday (which should have been posted on Wednesday).  Yup, that's how I'm rolling right now. 

I always love to hear what people are reading.  You can learn a lot about a person by observing what they read.  You can also get a great lead on what your next read might be.  

When I showed you my newly refinished bedside table, I purposely left my books "as is" in the photo because that's usually how it looks. 

Sometimes the bigger books are precariously piled on top of the smaller books, but on this day we were living safely. 

This is what I'm reading right now:

  1.  Jesus Calling by Sarah Young is an amazing devotional book.  It is written, using scripture, in the first person of Christ.  I start every day with it and . . .

   2.  My Bible.  I've had this Bible for 21 years now.  It's worn and weary, but I love all of the notes and dates I've written in the margins***

3.  Radical by David Platt.  I have to warn you about this book.  If you don't want to be challenged in your Christian walk, don't read this book. It will completely change your way of thinking about living out your faith.  Hubs and I meet twice a month with our Life Group to discuss the latest chapter read. 

   4.  Teaching to Change Lives by Howard G. Hendricks. I picked this up recently in a thrift store and it's a wonderful book.  I couldn't put it down.  I'll be reading through it again and using a highlighter. 

5.    Jonah by Priscilla Shirer. This is the workbook for a DVD Bible study I'm doing with my ladies group from church.  Priscilla is always a wonderful teacher and really inspires her audience.  As an added benefit, our pastor is preaching a series on Jonah.  Awesome!

6.  Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.  I have to admit, this book is so overwhelming for me to read that it's been on my night stand for months.  I can only read and take in a little bit at a time.  It's all about eating healthier.  I have so much to learn!

7.  Organic Gardening by Rodale Press.  This is my go-to source for planning my garden every year. 

****I'll be sharing about the concept of margins at a casual women's event at our church on Saturday, March 24th, from 10:00 to noon.   The topic is Spring Cleaning form the inside out.  Renewing and Refreshing your heart, health, and home. Let me know if you'd like to come!  I'd love for you to be my guest.

  1. "Jesus Calling" talks to me every day. Did you know she has another book too? It's called "Dear Jesus". IT's a devotional but it's more topic oriented.
    Love and hugs. xoxo


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
