My new read: going public

I just finished a non-thinking book, which is usually what I like the best these days! I read EVEN NOW by Karen Kingsbury. It was entertaining and fast, so it made for an easy read. I hear this is in a series, so now I feel as though I’m locked in and must read the next one. Anyone read these?

Next on my list is a book I’ve been wanting to read for some time now.  Julie blogged about it when she read it and I have had several mom’s recommend this book to me since we started Cayden in public school.  So far public school has been great for us.  Cayden absolutely loves school and his only complaint is that he hasn’t learned to read yet!  My only complaint is that he’s gone from us for 7 hours each day.  That’s a long time and we all miss him during they day.  Deacon misses him the most and says it’s not as fun with mommy when Cayden’s at school!

GOING PUBLIC by David & Kelli Pritchard with Dean Merrill

I look forward to diving into this book and hopefully I’ll fill you in on my thoughts along the way!

Just today on Jason Kovac’s Abba Fund blog he wrote  a post entitled BOOKS MY BLACK FRIENDS WISH EVERY WHITE PERSON WOULD READ.  That caught my eye!  As a white mom to three black children I find this very interesting.  I will head on over to my GoodReads account and add ALL of these books to my “to read” list.

Anything you want me to add to my “to read” list that you know I’ll love?  Hope you are reading b/c READERS ARE LEADERS!  ha!  I love to say that!

    I borrowed Going Public from Julie and have already used a couple of things from the book with Levi! He’s at Manor Elementary where there are lots of ‘learning’ opportunities for him and I! I’m glad Caden is enjoying Kinder!

  4. Any book written by Immaculee Ilibigaza!! I have read Our Lady of Kibeho (Phenomenal!) and Led By Faith…and, am in the beginning chapters of Left To Tell. Immaculee is a Rwandan genocide survivor and after reading Our Lady of Kibeho and Left To Tell, I agree 100% with Immaculee that God certainly did leave her to “tell”!! Amazing words to read by this woman, Jamie!! I can’t stop telling people whenever I am asked for book suggestions…..I’m still processing the words I have read and yet, am overwhelmingly Believing every single word written….get the books:) please:)

  5. I’m a Karen Kingsbury fan. I loved Even Now. Actually, I’ve enjoyed all of her books that I’ve read so far….. 🙂

  6. I love Karen Kingsbury. The next one after Even Now is Ever After and is a MUST! Her books are amazing.

  7. While this is not a group of books, as a adoptive mom, the book “Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish their Adoptive Parents Knew”, is on my list. I received it as a gift. I will let you know how it is!

  8. I am definitely going to read Going Public…this has really been a heavy thing on my heart lately!

  9. Have you read “The Mark of the Lion” series by Francine Rivers? I seem to think that you might have mentioned it before, but can’t remember. Truly a must-read series. Other than that, I really like books by Lori Wick, too. And I agree with Erin about Safely Home. Great book.
