The Summer Of Books
Ok sweet friends, I am going to to keep this blogging thing in a box...a place to reflect and journal so that just means no daily posts, but more a rewind of anything that has been happening lately or just something fun and cute to share...and it all came about from the books...oh these have been a breath of fresh air and JUST what the Big Man ordered.
So let's dive right in.
All three have been a mix of this get present, simplify, focus on what matters, and this summer has brought so much clarity through these books and of course God tugging. I recommend them all really, and my goodness Cultivate I am in the midst of now and just loving, lets just give that the top pick if you HAD to pick one.
But really read for yourself, but I promise the by products are awareness and then change...change for me of being ALL in with the kids... like NOT multi tasking, you know, enjoying the pushes on the swing (yep used to hate that...I mean just swing!)...and putting that phone down! But FIRST, like right now go get the unsubscribe app and then stop getting all the shopping emails, and your life will be changed!!!! ok mine was. ...but back to the point, presence, simplicity, and ahh!
And in the midst of more of these three humorous but powerful, we could be friends books, I have read this one (None Like Him) with two friends. A weekly playdate and ONE yep, only one chapter a week of sharing has been a gift. This gift to go deep in a toddler/preschool pretend play filled day.
- None Like Him - more intellectual, LOVED the questions that made me THINK!
And then totally off the Christ topic, but health excites me. This book is my total food philosophy in print...Ok maybe the perfect version of my food philosophy but you get the idea...
- Body Love - my food philosophy in a nut shell! More on that another time.
Although it does kind of make me laugh when the whole health community is like, meditate, journal each day...um it's called quiet time y'all!! Mediate on his word and journal your thoughts to HIM, I promise it will change you!
So there we go a quick brain dump of what has been happening over here!
