A few years ago, I began keeping a list of books I read for the year. I’m not an avid reader by nature, so I needed to account for what I was putting in my mind.
If you think about it, you can put 50 shades of . . . nothing in your mind and get nothing or put knowledge in and learn. Simply said what you put in to your mind is crucial to who you will become!
Books change lives.
You can learn a lot about a person by what books are on their bookshelf. And I’m really not nosey, but I do always look out of curiosity. Then I wonder what others think when they see my books piled around. Oh how I wonder what my books say about me?
Here’s a list of books I read in 2012:
1. Strengths Based Leadership by Tom Rath (do you struggle to know what you’re good at?)
2. Platform by Michael Hyatt
3. Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley (awesome book on what it means to lead)
4. Kingdom Journeys by Seth Barnes
5. 7 by Jen Hatmaker (this book will mess you up totally)
6. Wrecked by Jeff Goins (thankful to be headed to Guatemala on the Wrecked Vision Trip in 30 days — a must read)
7. Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis (written by a 20 year old, this is a cry your eyes out and send me to Africa must read!)
8. Anything by Jennie Allen
9. Everything by Mary DeMuth
And many other books, ebooks and digital downloads . . .
