Books are #14 of my 20 Great Things...
I grew up loving books. Over the years, I drifted away from them, always using the excuse that I was too busy. About a year ago, I thought to myself, "If you're too busy to read, then that must mean that you're too busy to learn." When I thought of how silly that sounded, I knew I needed to make a change. Some great books fell into my hands in 2011, and these 3 are my favorites:
The Christian Atheist by Craig Groeschel ...whether you're a Christian or not, you'll be glad you took the time to read this book. It's a super easy read, and will help you to step back and think about the way you're living your life.
Harris and Me by Gary Paulsen ...a kids' book that is guaranteed to make you laugh. I promise.
A Heart For Freedom by Chai Ling ...I haven't finished it yet, but the first 2/3 of the book is enough to convince me this is a favorite. It's a true story of a woman raised in China, and her search for freedom, purpose, and peace. I'm having a hard time putting it down.
I hope someone, somewhere out there will take the time to read all of these. And when you do, I want to know what you think of them!
