Lacey Reads // February Book Reviews

Another month of books. Mostly really good books. So of course I have to tell you about them! This weather has got me reading while sitting on the back porch with the boys playing in the yard. It isn’t always the easiest because I have to stop to help them build something, get in/out of the jeep, and break up some arguing, but it is truly a wonderful way to spend the afternoons.

  1. Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Christian in Community by Dietrich Bonhoeffer // If someone can tell me how to correctly pronounce his name, that’d be great. This book is pretty good. The library’s condition of the book was old and it just felt like I was reading some wise information. I mean, it is great information no matter what form. It was a pretty good book. It’s great to see how an author felt from years and years ago but it’s still applicable to us now. 
  2. Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work by Timothy Keller // I’m almost done with this book and Tim Keller is a win every time. I haven’t found a book of his I didn’t like. I love seeing other’s encourage us all to bring God into every part of our lives, including work!
  3. The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery by Ian Morgan Cron // At some point last year, thanks to my friend Kristine, I learned about enneagrams. I’ve always enjoyed learning about love languages and personality types so this was just a great addition. I’ve taken the test multiple times and thankfully Kristine helped me because I had a false result the first time. Then I seriously have 4 types tied. 1,2,3,&8. I had requested this book from the library in November. But I guess a lot of people have been interested. If you’re wanting to learn a little more about yourself, take the test and then learn about your type! It’s really interesting. 
  4. Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin // Jen is probably in my top 5 authors. She’s inspiring and pushes you to do more and be better. Not in a mean way but in a cheering-you-on way. She’s the teacher that says you can do it and you deserve to do it. This book is wonderful and if you’re a Christian woman, you need to read it!
  5. Humble Roots by Hannah Anderson // Favorite read. I’d recommend this book to everyone. I kept seeing it over and over, so I knew it had to be good. But it’s great. Her writing is easy to read, not judgmental, and uplifting while also being convicting. 
  6. Spiritual Mothering by Susan Hunt // I honestly think I just added this to my library holds because my other books weren’t ready. Then they all ended up being ready at the same time. This book was great and I think I misread the title. It was less about mothering my children and more about sharing Christ with others. Which is great!
