A Farewell to April

The past month has been incredibly busy. We've had busy weekdays, weeknights, and weekends, and to be quite honest, I am VERY much looking forward to the summer. Summer means vacation, and seriously, my bags are crying, "pack me!"

We had a church-wide challenge to read the entire Bible in 90 days starting on January 1. It was more like 97 days for me, but I finished. I am amazed at how reading God's entire Word from Genesis to Revelation changed my perspective on His holiness, His faithfulness, His justice, His love, His grace, His salvation, and on and on. Reading the Bible is a worthwhile endeavor, but I can't begin to tell you how much it has changed me to read the entire canon from start to finish. God's Word is so alive.

A few weeks after that, I read Francine Rivers' new book Her Mother's Hope, and considering it is the first in a 3 part series, I can hardly wait for the next one to come out in October. I'm glad I read the Mark of the Lion books after they were all published. I don't think I could've handled the wait on those.

So, after reading the Bible for the first almost 100 days of the year, the list maker in me realizes that I need to make my reading list for the rest of the year. I realized I never posted what I thought about the books I read last year, so my thoughts regarding those will be coming soon.

I need your help on my reading list! What one book would you recommend as a must-read for me this year?


  1. Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover".

  2. John Adams by Robert McCullough (reading right now) and Family Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham (on my list for the year).

  3. The Centurion's Wife is a good Christian fiction.

  4. Brad, yours will not make the cut. :)
