Wow! It’s been a long time since I shared what we’re reading, but that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been reading.
I have been reading such a great book – My Heart in His Hands by Sharon James. This is the life of Ann Judson told mostly through her letters and journals. It is encouraging and challenging at the same time. Even with my husband having cancer, I still feel that what I’m going through is light in comparison to all Ann faced. And by God’s grace she faced her trials with courage and even joy that she could serve her Lord in such a way. I highly recommend this book if you want to be challenged in your spiritual walk.
18-year-old daughter – Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows – Except for occasional language this is a charming read and a great re-read.
16-year-old son – Fear is the Key – Alistair Maclean – Not his best but the second best for sure.
14-year-old son – D-Day to Berlin: Victroy in Europe Day by Day by Stephen Crawford
12-year-old daughter – Blog This by Cami Checketts. This looks like one I would like to read.
11-year-old daughter – Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins.
9-year-old son – Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish. Personally I don’t particularly enjoy these books, but I can see how they would be enjoyable to a little boy.
4 and 5-year-old sons – With Love From Grandma by Harriet Ziefert. This is such a sweet story about an afghan that a grandma knits for her granddaughter. This was a thrift store find for us many years ago and has been one they have all enjoyed.
Off to School, Baby Duck by Amy Hest. This is another sweet story. We have enjoyed all of the “Baby Duck” books that we have read. Her parents are sweet but rather clueless. Grandpa, on the other hand, always knows exactly what Baby Duck needs, and it’s not usually the hugs and kisses that her parents are always willing to give her.
We’d love to hear what you are reading.
