the reading list debut.

this year one of my [many] goals is to... read a book per month.
right now that seems like a challenge but i think that as reid becomes more independent & we get the hang of this '2 kid thing' it will be something i'm glad i did.

i got some advice from the pro...@lukemacdonald. he's someone to be admired in the reading world. needless to say, (once you see the list) he wouldn't read some of these books. :)

and then there were twelve.
12. Choosing to See by Marybeth Chapman

11. Stuff Christians Like by Jonathon Acuff

10. Same Kind of Different As Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together by Ron Hall

9. Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp

8. The Next Christians: The Good News about the End of Christian America by Gabe Lyons

7. Reshaping it All by Candace Cameron Bure

6. Humility: True Greatness by C.J. Mahaney

5. Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters By Timothy Keller

4. Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar

3. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life by Donald Miller

2. Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
