Currently: On My Bookshelf


The above books are the physical books that I am hoping to devour in the next two months.  I also have books, e-books, and audiobooks on my Kindle.  I’ll share those titles with you another day.  This collection of books includes an autobiography, a couple of fiction novels, and books on Christianity, healthy living, autism, reading/homeschooling, building relationships, and one just laugh out loud book of silliness!

A couple of the books, Nourishing Traditions and Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism, are books I read and re-read.  I consider them healthy eating reference guides.  They are packed full of lots of great information, but sometimes sitting down and trying to digest too much in one sitting gives me a headache!

I am currently reading Anything by Jennie Allen as part of an on-line Bible study that I’m doing through Good Morning Girls.  I had already purchased it and then found out about the study.  It is about fully surrendering your life to God.  Truly being open to ANYTHING He might have for you.  It has stretched me more than I ever thought possible!  So exciting!  Jennie talks about Kisses from Katie in the book so I am reading that simultaneously as we only cover a few chapters a week in our study. My sister also read Kisses from Katie and said it was phenomenal!

Here is a complete list of the books that are on my bookshelf to read this summer.  I broke them down by category.


Delightfully Different by D.S. Walker


One Call Away by Brenda Warner (wife of former NFL quaterback Kurt Warner) : this probably could have gone in the Christian category as both Steve and Brenda are Christians who are very open to share how Jesus radically changed their lives!


Anything by Jennie Allen

Forgotten God by Francis Chan

The Great Evangelical Recession by John Dickerson (this is actually the pastor of our church)

The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne

Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis

Radical by David Platt

The Shack by William Young

What Women Fear by Angie Smith


The Accidental Family by Rowan Coleman

Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner

Swapping Lives by Jane Green

Healthy Living

Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon

Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism by Maria Emmerich


F in Exams:  The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson (seriously!  This is laugh out loud funny!  We keep it out and read it from day to day. I can’t imagine being one of the teachers/professors that received one of these test answers from a student!)

Reading/Fostering a Love of Reading in Children

The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller

Honey for a Teen’s Heart by Gladys Hunt & Barbara Hampton

The Reading Promise:  My Father and the Books We Share Alice Ozma

So there is my list! Have you read any of these books?  I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of them!  I’d also love to hear what you are currently reading and if there are any titles that you think are a must-read this summer!  You can leave them in the comments!

Have a great day!

Make it great!
