I love to read. That being said, I typically haven’t made much time for reading lately. Either I spend so much time reading to my kids I don’t get around to it myself, or I’m too wiped out by the time I get to bed. I do believe, however, that reading good books challenges us, grows us, and refreshes us.
A good fiction book is my favorite. I happen to agree with author J.K. Rowling who said, “I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.” I have several fiction books on my wish list. However, in an effort to live more intentionally, I plan to read the following books this year as well (there are twelve…one per month). I hope you’ll join me!
Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God

Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer

As the ever inspirational Dr. Seuss tells us, “The more you read, the more things you know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” So travel with me this year, challenge yourself, whether with this book list or your own. I think you’ll be glad you did.
