This past year, I did a lot of reading. Especially over the winter when it was football season. Since I’m not as big of a football nut at Stuart, but enjoy spending time with him, I came up with the perfect compromise: to read while he watches football (or golf, or basketball, or volleyball, or baseball…you get the idea.) And as it was my first winter married to Stuart, I had ample time and opportunity to read through lots of books!
For the past two months, I’ve focused on one specific goal for each month. Pursuing one way of bettering my life and myself if you will. My goal for October was “Just Do It:” get out of the house and get moving. For November it was figuring out my “Grand Art:” what has God created me uniquely to do with my passions and gifts?
I’ve recently been reading a ton. I think mainly because we’ve been traveling a lot, and since you have to turn off all electronics while flying it makes sense to me to bring along a good book. But that’s really just an excuse because I’m a huge not-so-secret book nerd.
About a month ago I read the book, “A Walk Across the Sun.” It follows two young sisters from India, Ahalya and Sita who lose their entire family in a tsunami.
