I’ve been coming across so many great articles and blog posts this week, I feel the urge to share some of them with you!
A little extra reading for what looks like a rainy long weekend:
I’m Still Here: Back Online After a Year Without the Internet : Turns out, distractions are everywhere, even without the internet…
Have American Parents Got it All Backwards? : Some interesting observations on parenting techniques from other cultures….
When You Feel Like Everybody is Bigger, Better, Smarter… : “She would make her life small.” For everyone trying to lay it all down for Jesus…
And because I’ve got a shiny new gift card, here are the books I’m eying these days:
Zero Waste Home: Reusable fresh produce bags, and countless other ideas on how to save money and consume less? I’m in.
Clean Food: A Seasonal Guide to Eating Close to the Source: My friend says it’s amazing, and I’ve been loving Clean Start.
God’s Favorite Place on Earth : “Bethany was the only place on earth where Jesus was completely received.” I love this observation, and it sounds like an awesome book!
The Gift of an Ordinary Day: The very thing I’m so passionate about! This mother writes about savoring the moments we take for granted.
Finally, because my sister is awesome, and knows the way to my heart, she is providing me with a free copy of my current favorite book, Naked Spirituality, to give away on my blog!
So excited!! Here’s what you have to do to enter the draw:
Let me know what your current favorite book is! You can only enter one favorite, and you have until next week Friday.
Make my gift card decision a little more complicated!

Right now I am loving the book “Loving God with all your mind” by Elizabeth George. Thank you so much for the recommendation of this book. It really speaks to me with all the health issues going on.
I’m so glad your enjoying it! I’m re-reading it again, and it’s speaking to me just as much the second time!
The Narrow Road by brother Andrew
Crazy Love by Francis Chan
It’s intense.. So prepare to be challenged!
I have so many on my list to read…but what I’m enjoying right now is One Thousand Gifts. It’s been on my list for a long time but I’m just getting to it now. Sorry, I won’t help you spend your gift card because you’re one of the ones who recommended it. It might just be a life-changer!
I don’t have much time to read, but one book I like to pick up and put down is Mother Styles by Janet P Penley. It shows me how we are all different mothers and that is good. Also it explains why I’m different according to my personality. It helps when I start comparing myself to others.
Yay, the title to this book! You told me about it awhile back, but didn’t remember the exact name. I’ve been wanting to read it ever since.
Oh wow – just ONE favorite book? I think I would have to say Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It’s probably one you’ve read before though, so nothing new & exciting. 🙂
I have read that one before, and it is amazing! As is everything else by Francine Rivers, but that one seems to be everybody’s favorite!
