Some New Year Stuff....
We spent New Year's weekend in Florida. We visited Mike and Amber, my sister and also Rick and Christie. Rick & Christie have a new baby boy. Trey. Before I get ahead of myself I wanted to share with you some of my goals for 2011.
I have joined the Siesta Scripture Memory Team It is Beth Moore's challenge that we memorize two verses a month. I have also decided to join in with Ann Voskamp and memorize two verses per week of Colossians. Just two verses and by the end of the year the whole book is memorized.
I have my reading list too.....
need to finish a couple chapters of "I will Carry You," by Angie Smith that I didn't finish in 2010. Excellent book, heart wrenching but such an amazing testimony of God.
2011 Reading List
One Thosand Gifts by Ann Voskamp (released THIS month!)
Choosing to SEE by MaryBeth Chapman
Too Small to Ignore by Wess Stafford
Hope Lives by Amber Von Schooneveld
I may add a few more. I want to read Vicki Courtney's book when it comes out... about Conversations with Boys. I finished 5 Conversations You Should Have with Your Daughter this past year and it was a great read.
My #1 read for 2010 was/is Radical by David Platt. It is a must read for everyone. Life changing to me. Totally changed the way I view things.... changing my vision.
Last year my goal was 10 books for the year. I didn't make it. It was more like 4. It is ok. I am not in it to win or to race. Just to read. I love to read just do not have lots of extra time.
Will share more about our trip and other stuff..... in the next few days.
What's on your reading list for 2011?
Been a couple rough days here. Would appreciate your prayers. Just when I share how God is giving me grace to walk this journey and I feel a spring in my step.... I fall on my face. His grace is sufficient and your prayers are appreciated more than you know.
Thanks for stopping in.... would love to hear from you.
