a goal i have this year is to read more. i say it every year in hopes that it actually will happen. who knows, we will see. i’m starting with an oldie but goodie from the founder of Campus Crusade, Bill Bright. i read this book in college when i really started growing in my relationship with God. i have fond memories reading it in my old college apartment and discussing it with my accountability group. this book discusses the awesome and amazing character traits of our God. good stuff. i don’t ever want to put God in my little box. i want to be reminded how He can blow me out of the water at any point. i want to live a life that shows i live for and serve a God that is SO big our finite minds can’t comprehend it. but also a God that is so gracious, sincere and calming He stills me and takes my breath away in every day, little ways. i want to teach our kids about this awe inspiring God. how he created the billions and billions of stars and also created them in their unique and lovable ways. so here is to reading GOD – discover is character.
by the way a couple of weeks ago as i was blog hopping i came across a couple of book lists for 2011 that other “mom bloggers” compiled and for the life of me i can’t them again. if you have seen any please send them my way. there were some good books on the lists i found that i would love to get my hands on.
thanks! and happy reading!
