I'm about to finish a couple books I've been reading - a biography of Zelda Fitzgerald and The Goldfinch by Donna Tart.

I like to read several books at a time from different genres so that I can jump around, according to my mood. Next up on my list (i.e. the books sitting next to my bed), a memoir.

What good books have you been reading lately?

"When spring came... there were no problems except where to be happiest."
Ernest Hemingway

You know it's going to be a good day when you get to work early, so you get coffee and sit in the sun and read.

Trying to finish a library book that's already overdue so I can take it back today. 😬

Has anyone else read this memoir or any other Madeleine L'Engle books? I never read her as a child, but after reading an essay of hers that I really liked, I'm diving into some of her other works and loving them so far.

This. This is a truth that has sunk deep into my bones this year and, yet, that I never mind being reminded of over again.

I recently finished reading The Magnolia Story and, even though it was a fun and easy read, it also challenged me to think about my marriage, dreaming big, and living in trust instead of fear.

Down in the mess is where we're stretched, where we grow, and where we experience God's faithfulness. May I never forgot or become resentful of my imperfect circumstances.

Productive, reflective afternoon, preparing for book club tonight.
I always feel like God speaks to me in themes. And lately, every conversation I've had, every book I've read, every talk I've heard centers around connected themes. I'm learning about living in trust, rather than fear. About understanding my individuality and knowing who God created me to be. About clarifying my vision but not micro-managing my life with my own plans.
Wrestling with some difficult ideas and doing the even more difficult work of putting them into practice. But God is showing me and shaping me and the results are so good.

Currently reading this stack of books (plus a couple others).
When we got married and moved into our new home, we filled all the bookshelf space we have with books we already owned. Since then, we've continued to add to our collection until we have books sitting next to the bookshelves, by our bed, on top of other surfaces.
And each book has meaning and purpose and fills us with ideas we'd never thought of on our own. They take us on adventures and develop us as people.
Definitely worth the overflowing shelves.

Doing some serious soul searching this afternoon. It's a lot more difficult to come to terms with some of my unhealthy mindsets than I'd like to admit. Sometimes being honest with myself and digging deep to answer real questions is hard and painful but so necessary for moving past them. Praying for change, strength, and for compassion for myself and others. And taking ahold of God's promise that he is guiding me along the best pathway for my life and that he advises me and watches over me.

My summer reading list is quickly becoming my fall reading list. // 09 of 21 / May We Be Forgiven by AM Homes // One of my favorites so far. Bizarre and so interesting.

Sitting on the porch, enjoying a bowl of cherries and a good book, listening to a thunderstorm.

Another one from my summer reason list: 07 of 21 / Gone Girl by by Gillian Flynn // Definitely a page turner. Finished this one in about a day.

Haven't shared anything from my reading list in a while: 06 of 21 /The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich // "When we are young, the words are scattered all around us. As they are assembled by experience, so so are we, sentence by sentence, until the story takes shape."

05 of 21 / Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert // "I just want God. I want God inside me. I want God to play in my bloodstream the way sunlight amuses itself on water."
