This was a big reading month for me. I was very surprised when I looked back at my GoodReads to see what I had actually read last month. Here are the highlights.
The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp - Voskamp's second book does not disappoint. A great look at the Christian life and how we must be broken to be made whole and we must share that brokenness with others. When we are honest with ourselves and others, then God can do great things!
Grace for the Good Girl by Emily P. Freeman - A lovely look and reminder that we all need grace, even the good girl, rule follower like myself. Refreshing, relatable and real. I like this one a lot because it fit me and where I am at.
For the Love by Jen Hatmaker - A serious, yet fun look at life and what it means to live with the love of God. I enjoy Hatmakers writing and honesty.
Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist - In a world that demands more and more of us, it is hard to be present. This a great book about Niequist taking the time to stop, pull back on all the demands of life and learn to be present in her life. I especially like the second half that talked about how we remake our life so we can be present with the people who matter the most and present in our relationship with God.
Orphan Train by Christian Baker Kline - A fantastic novel about a modern day girl in foster care who starts to work for an older lady and discovers the amazing story of the woman's past. An engaging read with a fascinating and intriguing story.
Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave - The story of four friends during WW II in Great Britain. The war takes them all in different directions and the book explores if their relationships can survive the war. So well written and the characters are one you will not quickly forget. Highly recommend this one!
