Rachel lost another tooth last week! I think this gap is so cute!
I'm not exactly sure how I found the time, but I was able to get a good bit of reading done in May. It was nice! I'm sure it helped that I was able to read two of these books while exercising on my treadmill. Everything I read was really good, too, except for two books which were just okay.
- Missional Motherhood: The Everyday Ministry of Motherhood in the Grand Plan of God by Gloria Furman. This excellent book speaks to us mothers as we minister to our children and those we mentor. As she says, there is no such thing as just a mom: our job is important in God's grand scheme of things, and she walks us through the Bible showing us how this is.
- Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson. You can read my review here.
- Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind, and Soul by Ruth Soukup. A great book about decluttering your mind and soul, not just your home. You can read my full review here.
- The Tattooed Jesus: What Would the Real Jesus Do with Pop Culture? by Kevin Swanson. This book doesn't just condemn popular culture; it teaches the reader how to be discerning about what he lets into his home and family.
- The Remedy by Serena Chase. This book is the second in the series, supposedly a retelling of the Snow White and Rose Red fairy tale. Honestly, I don't see it, but I did really enjoy reading this book on my kindle while walking/jogging on the treadmill. I actually wanted to keep exercising so I could keep reading!
- Let There Be Light by Mark Leonard. A fun story about traveling back in time to the Flood, you can read my review here.
- Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson. You can read my review here.
- Duncan's War by Douglas Bond. A look into the conflict between the Scottish Covenanters and the English Church in the 1600's through the eyes of a boy. Very interesting.
