Since I have started teaching high school full time, I’ve had less time to read; imagine that! However I have enjoyed reading Crystal Paynes’s Say Goodbye to Survival Mode and Karen Kingsbury’s Whatever You Grow Up to Be.
I have always been a goal setter, but Crystal inspired me to get back into the specific goals that I want to accomplish in categories, such as personal, family, blogging/business, runnng, scripture memory, etc. She is so inspiring and motivating. My favorite part about saving more and spending less is to bless others. I particularly love her outlook on giving and helping others. I guess that’s why I am so fond of freezer cooking. I always have a stash of food, whether it’s something small like a loaf of bread or a casserole to bless someone in need. It’s the thought that counts. I highly recommend her book for someone who has never been a goal setter to someone like myself who needs some gentle nudging to get back into the swing of things. Her book has been on my nightstand for a month and it has been an easy read, a chapter at a time. Crystal’s easy outline of creating ways to put order into your chaos will bless you.
My six-year old boy and almost four-year-old girl love Kingbury’s books with vivid colors and fairy tale pictures. The story comes alive with different occupations that children can understand. My son is already imagining himself as a policeman. This book reinforces that any child can be whatever God desires. It blesses me to share story time with my children and visualize what he/she will be when they grow up. Kingbury’s words from the heart of a mother weaves scripture right into my family’s heart through story time.
Reading is a wonderful outlet for myself and my children. I love reading scripture weaved throughout my books.
