This one is written by a new friend who shares some of the same health challenges as I do. She is also a big believer in the healing power of food. It's interesting and inspiring stuff. (Wes is actually rather fascinated with this one too. We share a passion for health, fitness, and nutrition.) I can't wait to try some recipes!
This one is also written by some people I know and admire. They are two of the warmest, most humble, uplifting people I have ever met. Every time I talk to them or see them speak, I come away so fed and inspired. This book is such a phenomenal read! I am always looking for books to teach me better parenting skills. I can never learn or read or talk enough about how to be a better mom. I loved the spiritual tie-ins also....books regarding faith and parenting seem to be hard to find.
This next book is also very fascinating. I actually found it at the grocery store the other day (can you tell I'm a book addict? I can find a book I want to read anywhere. I'm a bookaholic.) and it was too hard to resist. I love books that make you think deep. I love books that motivate me to change and teach me things - even simple things. This book is a very interesting and fun read:
This last book I'm reading right now is very dear to my heart. You know how some books you love for a long time are like old friends? This book is one of those for me. I've owned this book since I was in junior high, and I've read it almost every year, up until the last few. It's been really comforting and peaceful to read amidst so many things I am dealing with that seem to bury me in stress and discouragement. This book is like an old friend giving me a hug. And it's a really easy read. Added bonus: this one fits great in my purse and I take it along with me often. The chapters are only a couple pages each, so I can read one while waiting at the doctor's office pretty easily (since unfortunately that seems to be a place I'm frequenting right now). If you haven't read this book, I guarantee you'll love it - even if you don't normally like to read.
Maybe I love writing so much because of how much I love reading. I think it's a really incredible way for many people to be touched by one (or more) something that someone else has to share to better your life or make you a better person. Books are like old friends that you just met. I have never sat down to read and then regretted taking the time to do it later on. I just love curling up in my papasan chair with a little back of chocolates to suck on, a blanket, and a book. I could go on and on and on. But seriously, if you are looking for some good reads, check these babies out. They won't disappoint. Happy reading!
