I’m a little disappointed with myself because I didn’t finish two books in March. We’re a few days into April and I’m still wrapping up book number two. But I’m going to show myself a little bit of grace and make sure I finish two books in April (not including the March book). I’m flying to D.C. for a work trip so I should have no problem with this!
March kicked off with a pretty intense Francis Chan book on marriage titled, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity. I apparently already read part of this book because I had done quite a bit of highlighting. Francis Chan is not timid in his preaching or writing, and given the subject of the book I was prepared to be shaken. Certainly, I was reminded to keep an eternal perspective in my marriage, but this book didn’t dive as deeply into the subject of heaven as I was hoping it would. I wasn’t necessarily disappointed because it truly was an enlightening book, but I would like to read more on the subject someday. You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will stay on our book shelf, but I don’t have plans to read it again soon.
I’m still reading Sheet Music, but I don’t have to finish it to tell you how I feel about it. Engaged? Read it (through chapter four). Married one year? Read it. Married 30 years? Read it. I actually purchased this book before our wedding but haven’t read it until now and I super wish I had. If you’ve spent any amount of time with me, you probably know that I’m pretty open and think we should discuss this topic more :) Married and engaged Christ followers, you need to read Sheet Music book. Immediately.
When you work from home like I do, you get to enjoy rainy days so much more. We’ve had nothing but rain this week and it has me in a very cozy spirit. I’ve been seeing the Danish term Hygge(hoo-guh) pop up all over the place. Hygge is a Danish term for enjoying life’s simple pleasures – sign. me. up. I’m going to dive into The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living the very second I finish Sheet Music. I can’t wait!
I haven’t selected my second book for April, but it will probably be something light. Probably still non-fiction, but I need a little space to digest some of the faith reading I’ve been doing. It doesn’t do much good if I read the words and don’t apply them to my life! Let me know if you’re reading something great.
