June, July, and August Reads

As previously mentioned, a lot of things happened over the last few months.

Though books have long been some of my most faithful companions, they took a backseat in June and July. However, the sunny days of August had more room for those magical portals of the written word and, for my sanity’s sake, they were devoured.

Here’s what’s been filling my heart library. I’d love to know what’s filling yours!

2017 Reads

2017 Reads.jpg

I love to read. 

And this year reading was a challenge.

It was hard to focus and get sucked into the pages because, for the first time in my life, I liked what was happening in my own life better than what was happening in the world of books.

Who knew that was possible?

Instead of spending every free second reading about other people living their lives, I was actually living mine. And it was wonderful and hard and beautiful and excruciating, and I would choose every second all over again to see God the way I do today and to get to know and love (and be known and loved by) the extraordinary people in my life.

Anyway, here are the books I did read. (And, minus the top five, these are in no order whatsoever).

I can’t believe this is my “job”

The newest RTM Magazine is out!

If you don’t know, I’m the assistant editor of this free digital mag and—for my “job” (what?!)—I get the privilege of writing, designing and sharing stories about our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world with readers from more than 100 nations! This grace overwhelms me daily.

This March/April issue is for sure my favorite one to date and I would love for you to read it.

In the new mag, you’ll find stories about Jared Wilson, my wise and beautiful friends Melanie and Alex Duke (gorgeously featured in the above photo), my dear friend Anna Farthing, as well as an appearance by Charles Spurgeon, my pastor and more!

I love these people and I know you will too. Praise for God’s big family and His grace that unites us all.

I love my job.
