I'm back with another goal for 2013. To me, this goal is quite the strrrreeeeetchhhh! What could this crazy resolution be? To read books. Insane, right? I mean, I read blogs quite a bit, and other random publications that come my way, but it's been years since I've finished an entire book. I've started quite a few, but I never make it more than a few chapters... Reading is hard for me to do these days. I'm a stay at home (homeschooling!) mom to three children, ages 6, 4 and 1. Moments to myself are few and far between during daytime hours. And by the time everyone is in bed at night, opening a book is like taking a sleeping pill... out. like. a. light. But somehow, some way, I will read. I would like to read at least one book each month. Like I said, I have a nice stash of choices. I was paralyzed with fear a little stressed at first about which book to read first, what type of book would be the most beneficial to get started on. Then I slapped myself across the face and said, 'Just pick one and go with it! If you follow through with this, you'll get to them all eventually!" So, what book did I choose? The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer. Our church went through this book and The Resolution for Men as Sunday school classes this past year, and I LOVED what a read. I was encouraged and challenged in just the first few chapters, and I can't wait to dig into the rest!
Isn't it fitting that the first book of my reading resolution would be about resolutions?!
