{Daily Life Wednesdays}: What I’m Reading

Since my last “What I’m Reading” post here is what I’ve read:

1.  Chasing FrancisChasing Francis by Ian Morgan Cron

This was kind of a weird book and not something I liked a lot, except there was a small part towards the beginning that had a big impact on a part of my life I was wrestling through.  If it were not for that portion though I don’t think I would have made it through the book.  It felt fake and that it would appeal more to the upper class, mega church kind of crowd.

Furious Longing of God2.  The Furious Longing of God by Brennan Manning

I enjoy Brennan Manning’s works and liked this book as well.  A good reminder of God’s character and who I am as his child.

3. Antelope in the Living Room The Antelope in the Living Room by Melanie Shankle

A humorous book on marriage with some good reminders and new ideas sprinkled throughout.  This is probably not a book I’d read over and over but I enjoyed it!

4.  Show Me the WayShow Me the Way by Henri Nouwen

A series of Lenten devotions by Nouwen that were a good acompanyment to the devotions my husband and I read through during the season of Lent.  Definitely something I will return to in future Lenten seasons.

5.  Life Changing Magic of Tidying UpThe Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondō

This book has a lot of hype around it, and while parts are a little kooky (she talks about listening to each article you own and what it says to you and making sure you tell it thank you after using it each time), it’s a fast read and it really inspired me to do some thorough cleaning and simplifying in our home.

6.  Missional MomMissional Mom by Helen Lee (in progress)

I’m not quite done with this book, but wanted to include it in this list since I’m so close to being done.  It’s an excellent book for mom’s to read and has helped me a lot as I’ve struggled through what being a mom looks like paired with doing ministry in our neighborhood and using other skills I have.
