January books

I read five books in January.
Besides Dug Down Deep:

Jonathan Livingston Seagull -- I got this book from Lucy. It was a quick, easy read and a good story.

Working the Angles by Eugene Peterson -- this was in my stack of books to read for the year. I got it from a friend in KY. I really appreciated the effort to check in on people in ministry. Just because we are seen as "professional Christians" does not always mean we are very good at reading Scripture and praying. It also helped me remember the importance of REST/SABBATH!

The Giver by Lois Lowry -- my BFF from HS said she read this book in HS. I did not, so I read it and LOVED IT! Apparently it's similar to the Hunger Games series, which I did not like my first time trying to read (only got 20-40 pages into it... I'll try again with book + cd).

Waking the Dead by John Eldredge -- also recommended by a friend. It helped me remember the importance of taking care of your heart, knowing that as a Christian, your heart is GOOD. I always like Eldredge and the way he ties things together.

I also had a book on my list that I decided to donate to the library instead. It was The Girl Who Could Fly. My mom got it free in the mail, but I just feel like giving it away instead. And if I ever have the desire to read it, I know which library to go to. haha...
