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.

- 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.
- 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!
- The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery by Ian Morgan Cron // Since Susan Stabile was trained in the enneagram by Richard Rhor, I’ve made sure to read what she writes with that in mind. Rhor teaches a false doctrine and together they are shifting the way people see God. I wouldn’t recommend this book, unless you were just interested in the enneagram and seeing what the hype was about.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
