Reading List Review: Looking Ahead to 2015

Reading List Review: March 2015

First of all, I wanted to say that I hope each of you had a very merry Christmas and that you are looking ahead with excitement to the new year!

I wanted to share with you a brief review of the books I read in 2014 and what’s on my list in 2015.  Keep watching for in-depth book reviews coming up in the new year.

Beginning in 2014, I took some time each Sunday to read.  Now, I still had interruptions from the kids, but I still got some reading time in.  And somehow, toward the end of the year, I managed to fit in a lot more reading time (still not sure how that happened!), and was able to finish a lot of good books!  One thing I discovered was that breaking things down into manageable chunks (i.e. 1 chapter a day, 5 pages a day) makes it much easier to finish a book!  And in doing so, I finished more books this year than I probably have in the last 7 put together!

Here’s what I finished this year:

  • Dare to Discipline by Dr. James Dobson
  • The Generosity Ladder by Nelson Searcy
  • Let’s All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs
  • Pocket Prayers by Max Lucado

  • What’s It Like to Be Married to Me? by Linda Dillow

  • Where is God When It Hurts? by Philip Yancey
  • DNA of Relationships by Dr. Gary Smalley
  • The Promise of Security by Beth Moore
