I was thinking about this throughout the week... as new year has come and gone, I've found myself drenched again in my many home-school curriculum books, childrens resources and a stack of personal reading choices to navigate through.
I love to read and I love to listen to teaching series - anything on leadership, discipleship, parenting, education - anything! I am usually guilty of reading about 5-6 books at a time.. But I usually don't recall the "meat" very well unless I focus on one at a time. So I'm setting a goal - this one is right at the top - along with my health and fitness goals - to be a stronger, focused reader!
Usually you will find me navigating through 5th & 6th grade curriculum, learning about the Phoenicians, landforms, our solar system or The Bronze Bow. I do a lot of reading - of course due to lesson planning for Daniel's day, re-reading some of favorite parenting resources - Child Wise and other parenting resources such as Manners Matter by Hermine Hartley. All of these are necessary resources as I navigate through my six year and my ten year old's journey. As a leader, I need to be more intentional to embark into the quiet, focused time to enjoy and learn from a good read.
The titles that are currently resting beside my bed, in my car and on my desk include;
Every Church Has A Culture, By Design or By Default - By Kevin Gerald
Emotionally Healthy Church - By Peter Scazzero
Plan B - By Pete Wilson
Ancient Paths - By Craig Hill
Generation iY - By Tim Elmore
My goal - put two down (for now), pick up and finish 1. Then, repeat!
Pick up a copy and let's finish a few together! First on the list - Ancient Paths by Craig Hill.
Off to grab a warm, comfy spot to read! You gonna join in with me?
Next on the list - Plan B! Get a copy and message me if you want to read along together!
