Awaken by Priscilla Shirer Review

As a busy mom of 2, it can be difficult to find time to spend with the Lord. And when I do have the time, it can be hard to decide what to read, and how to spend my time. Do I just dive right into the Bible? Never a bad idea, but sometimes it’s easier to have some structure. Something to read to go along with a passage of scripture to help you delve deeper into what God is trying to say through His Word.

Oh I read a couple chapters here and there of books, but I didn’t finish one of them. 

[Insert rolling eyes emoji here.]

But that’s one thing that makes me excited about the fall.

Oh goodness I loved Book It. Reading books for free pizza? Sign me up. (Is there an adult version of this??) I’ve always been a big reader, and as I’ve gotten older and entered the blogging world, some of my favorite blog posts to read are book reviews. Even though I have a 42 million unread books on my book shelf, I’m such a sucker for a good book recommendation. 

Being a mom has definitely put a damper on the amount of books I read per month, but I found that if I make it a priority, (less TV, being more productive during the day so I can relax and read after my kids’ bedtime) I can actually read a good amount!

Have you heard of “She Reads Truth”?? It’s a website and an app that encourage and give women an easy way to be in the Word of God every day. Not only that, but it’s a community of women reading through the Word of God TOGETHER daily.
