I have always loved to read. And this year I am going to go back to that love. I am hoping to read at least one book from each of three categories: Edification, Education, and Enjoyment.
Edification – to build, establish, to instruct and improve especially in moral and religious knowledge
Education - to provide schooling for, to provide with information, to develop mentally, morally, or aesthetically especially by instruction
Enjoyment - to take pleasure or satisfaction in, to have a good time
Now that I have defined my parameters, I chose a few books for January.
My January List:
Edification: “The Meal That Heals” by Perry Stone
Education: “One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler” e-book by Tsh Oxenreider 52bites.com
Enjoyment: “The Witness”, by Dee Henderson
And of course the over-achiever in me rose up as I did a Sunday School lesson Benaiah recently, and I began another book called “In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day” by Mark Batterson. I’m not really sure which category it fits in…
And the book on the bottom of the pile is turning out to be rather good. “Relentless” by John Bevere. This one will be read over a three month period and since Chris is out of town this week, I get to teach Life Group, and this is the text.
For the most part, the books I’m focusing on this year are ones I’ve picked up over the last few years with lots of good intentions to read. Well, here we go. But I also have a couple of Kindle gift-cards from Christmas, so I am picking up a few e-books here and there.
