My Reading List for 2015

I had some time this weekend to sit down with my planner and look over my spiritual priorities and think about what things I would like to accomplish in our home this year.  I love setting goals on closet cleanings, rooms to organize and cupboards to clean out.  Since I live in Wisconsin, the next three months we hibernate – really I’m not kidding.  We woke up today and it was minus 10.

I do love the winter months to wear comfy, warm clothes and cozy up by the fireplace with a good book (or my Kindle).  Part of my yearly planning is to set a goal of books I would like to read this year.  Sometimes they get carried over from last year because I never got to them or sometimes I get distracted by books I didn’t think to put on my list and they become my next read.

Here is my hopeful list for 2015 and at the bottom I listed some of my favorite reads from last year’s list (if you notice there were a lot of distractions).  We’re currently reading Jesus Unmasked by Todd Friel as a family and loving every chapter!

Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson
Ordinary by Michael Horton
The Next Story by Tim Challies
The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis – We have tickets to see this through the Fellowship for Performing Arts so we may read this one together as a family.

Conversation Peace by Mary Kassian
Knowing God by J. I. Packer
Fool-Proofing Your Life by Jan Silvious
Surprised by Motherhood by Lisa-Jo Baker

  1. My husband and I are reading The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment together right now and it has already been a blessing! It’s a very deep, rich, and thought provoking book so it’s nice to discuss it with someone lol. My husband is also reading The Glory of Heaven and highly recommends it.
