Spring Reading Thing!

With the end of the Read the Bible in 90 Days challenge in sight, I am looking forward to a little extra time to dive into some books that I have had on the back burner these last few months. So when I came across the Spring Reading Thing at Callapidder Days I knew this was just what I needed! Its pretty low pressure and more than anything, I am excited to have a goal for reading that stack of books that are staring at me begging to be read!

Here is my reading list for this Spring!

1. Choosing to SEE: A Journey of Struggle and Hope
 (I'm already a chapter or two into this one but combined with 10-15 chapters of Bible reading its slow going so far!)

2. Don't Make Me Count to Three
(I was half way through this one when I started B90 so I think I may reread the parts I read, too, just so I don't miss anything! )

3. One Thousand Gifts
(I am beyond excited about this book! I am in love with Ann Vonkamp's blog, A Holy Experience, and so, really looking forward to this read. It's taken everything in me to not pick it up just yet!)

4. Big Truths for Young Hearts: Teaching and Learning the Greatness of God
(Chances are I'll be learning lots from this book myself but I'm also excited to learn how to share these truths about God with the kids in a way they can understand!)

(My hubby got me into this series and although I was skeptical at first, I am officially addicted!)

(I've heard too many great things about this book to not read it!)

(This is the next novel Piper and I will be reading together! Definitely a personal favorite!)

7 books seems like a good number for me so I'll stop there, but I'm hoping I'll be able to devour these in no time and will have to go looking for some more!

Have you read any of these? What did you think? You'll likely be hearing my thoughts after each book!

Happy Spring and happy reading!

I'm almost finished Pillars of the Earth so I can pass it on soon. I just found out that there is a sequel :)

I'm pretty excited to read it! And I love when there are sequels! Esp. if its a good book, just b/c I don't want the story to end!

Don't Make Me Count to Three is on my wishlist. I love the name Piper, btw. :)

Seems as though we have some similar reading taste. I've read "Choosing to See" I LOVED it! I thought it was funny and heart-touching. I've also read "Don't Make me Count to Three" there are lots of great tips in that one - good choice. And I have One Thousand Gifts on my shelf of books to read, I'm hoping to get to it sometime this year :)
Good Luck on your reading challenge!!

Looks good! I've been going through Big Truths for Young Hearts with our tween. Good stuff, and some really heavy stuff too, but the conversations it's sparked have been really good. Thanks for being part of SRT '11!

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
