Books, books, and more books!

I'm drowning in books and I love it!  One of the reasons we don't homeschool year round is so I can have extra reading time in the summer.  It may not contribute to my kids' education, but it does to mine!  Right now I'm reading the new Duggar book A Love that Multiplies, The Essential Edwards Collection by Owen Strachan and Doug Sweeney:  Jonathan Edwards on the Good Life, the new Ian Murray biography of John MacArthur:  Servant of the Word and Flock, and Tempted and Tried:  Temptation and the Triumph of Christ by Russel D. Moore.  I'm also just barely staying up with the 90 day Bible Challenge.  I think I'm on day 42 or so.  With this ipad app I'm using I don't have to know which day I'm on, I just read what it tells me to for "today".  I'm also barely keeping up with memorizing Colossians.  I need to dedicate some major time to review chapters one and two-  soon!

There's much I want to write about, but I'm just too busy reading right now.  Hopefully, I'll finish these books up in the next few days.  If I could just focus on one at a time...

What are you reading right now?

  1. I am reading To Kill A Mockingbird, Duggars new book, The HIdden Hand (Lamplighter) and all the cross references in the book of James. I have been studying James in depth since April 1. I will finish June 30, and then do the B90n again--July-Sept. Which iPad app are you using? I read a downloaded ESV last time, but would go to the Holy Bible app to mark off my chapters read each day.....I liked reading on the ESV app better--there wasn't a delay to load each chapter. It was like swiping the pages in a book, plus I like the highlighting feature. This time around I plan to read the New American Standard. I haven't found the perfect app for that version yet. Any suggestions?

    Happy Reading!! I am doing a lot of reading by the pool!

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
