Winter Reads


Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve obviously had more time on my hands since we’re on a 3 week winter break from work (don’t be that jealous, the intensity and hours I do work while school is in session more than makes up for all of it…it took about seven full days of rest to feel completely human again!). Between visiting with friends and family, I spent some time reading it up! (More blogs will follow regarding my trip home to AZ and other events over this three week break). Really this blog is more for me to remember what it is that I have read. So enjoy!

In the process:
Serving As Senders

I’m hoping to be the ‘Stateside Coordinator’ to help send my dear friend, Maria, back over to Israel to do missions work and this book details the ‘behind the scenes’ needs of missionaries.

Books Completed While Home:
When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy

A Christian approach to dating. What else would you expect me to read? 🙂

Chill Factor by Sandra Brown

A good little “on the edge of your seater” with a fun twist at the end

The Broken Window by Jeffrey Deaver

A thriller’s twist on a Big-Brotheresque type scenario.

A Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand

A relatively mindless dramatic story…not sure whether or not I liked it quite yet.

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

Oh my goodness. I adore Nicholas Sparks. Always good for a cry!

And On Audio For the Roadtrip:

Changing Habits by Debbie Macomber

I wouldn’t really recommend this one, but it made the drive easier.

The Beloved Disciple by Beth Moore

Beth Moore is my favorite. This book compelled me to turn it off and just cry and pray as well. Sweet times.

And Upcoming Reads:

The Beach House by Jane Green

The Echo Maker by Richard Powers

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

Understanding the Old Testament by B. Anderson
