Reading for Personal Growth

These books are on my to-read list. I've heard excellent reviews on both of them and can't wait to dig into them. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp is "a celebration of grace and a recognition of the power of gratitude."

 Give them Grace by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson is "telling our kids of the grace-giving God who freely adopts rebels and transforms them into loving sons and daughters. If this is not the message your children hear, if you are just telling them to “be good,” then the gospel needs to transform your parenting too."

What are some books you are going to read this year?

OK - so I had to comment here too - both of those books are SO SO SO SO good! You will change your heart and your parenting. I can't wait to hear what you think about them!

Before we get too far into the new year, you should join up with me and take Ann's Joy's recording 1000 gifts in 2012...

And she has an amazing (free) iphone app for it, too...

let me know if you start doing it - and I'll keep up with you on it!
