When The Nester asked “what books have you read in 2011” it took me by surprise. Not in the way of “oh my goodness, I haven’t read that” but in the way of “wow, how can I remember what I’ve read?”
While I reflected back on what I had read or what I could remember I had read, I was also challenged. I now claim it here, this 2012 year I will keep track of all the books I read. Whether we take the time to realize it or not – what we put in to our minds is crucial to who we will become! Books change lives.
I loved the Nester’s book list. I think I might have coveted it, actually! But while her list looks so fun, I was reminded that those books reflect her. As she states “you can learn a lot about a person by what books are on their bookshelf” I wondered what do my books say about me.
Books I’ve read the last 12 months:
Awakening (awesome read for January)
Girls Gone Wise
Lioness Arising (a must read)
7 Practices of Effective Ministry
Sun Stand Still
The Cause Within You (totally rocked my heart)
The Church that Never Sleeps
Next Generation Leader (every leader needs to read this book)
