In This Mountain by Jan Karon
Jeff and I often read books together at night… like out loud together. It’s something we started when we were first married, then abandoned for most of the years our kids were growing up because, well, we were exhausted. But it continues to be a favorite thing we do together and we look forward to that time of day. Especially if we’re into a really good story like this one. It’s one of my favorite in the Mitford series. We have also checked out the book on cd and listen to it in the car on our frequent long drives up and down I-5.
41 A Portrait of My Father by George W. Bush
I enjoyed the love expressed within this big, unusual family and also how down-to-earth and humble 41 is. It’s certainly refreshing to hear a son extol his father’s character!
The Ambition by Lee Strobel
I believe this is Strobel’s first work of fiction. I’ve read and appreciated his apologetics so was eager to read this. It is about the pastor of a mega-church who gets involved with politics as he loses touch with his God.
Counter Culture by David Platt
I am still reading (and loving) this book. This is from the publisher’s synopsis:
“…As difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond to all this?”
