What I'm Currently Reading

Awhile ago, I wrapped up reading Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs. I kept looking at my bookshelves and wondering what book to pick up next. I have a whole list of my top choices, but even of those, nothing jumped out at me.

I then reorganized my bookshelves (separated by genre into Christian non-fiction, other non-fiction, reference/Bible-study, and fiction) and organized them somewhat by spine color, as seen in the photo above from the fiction section of our shelves!

Still, nothing called to me from the bookshelves, even though I eyed them with admiration and satisfaction.

Finally, a couple days ago, I picked one. I'm now reading through (currently on page 17) Experiencing the Holy Spirit by Andrew Murray. I've already started taking notes, including, "We can know that it is God's will for us to be filled with the Holy Spirit. And he will give us this if we desire and seek after it."

I can already tell that this book is going to rock my world. A very good choice, indeed!

Meanwhile, I also requested (and am waiting to receive) the audiobook of Three Cups of Tea through my local library. (I know, I'm three years behind on this one.) When we were on vacation in Virginia Beach with Michael's family, his mom and grandmother highly recommended it, so I'm excited to get a glimpse into a world I know little about, other than news headlines and magazine articles.

Finally, as far as my Bible reading goes, I'm getting my fill of the Old Testament, which I always love. My Bible reading plan walks me through the Bible (kind of) chronologically and currently I'm in Daniel. Then, Michael and I are reading through Hosea together (and have even written our own little ode to the book!).

Needless to say, even though it was about a month without any reading materials on my plate (other than my daily Bible reading, which I've kept up) it feels mighty good to back to the reading swing-of-things once again!

Enough about me. What are you currently reading?

  5. @ Jessica - Awesome. All I've heard about it is recommendations like yours so I'm really looking forward to it! And especially getting to listen to it on my ipod :)

    @ Sarah - "Crazy Love" is another one that's on my to-read list!

    @ Brandy - Yes! It is so insightful for any marriage and really helped me become more aware of Michael's needs.

    @ Tamara - That's a great recommendation. I'll have to look in other books he's written; this is the first I've ever read anything by him.

  6. Three Cups is AWESOME. I loooved that book. I just finished The Hole in Our Gospel and I'm about to start reading Strong Women, Soft Hearts with a group of girls. I have Crazy Love on my to-read list but it's going to have to wait until this group is over.
