My Summer Book List

Here are the books I am working my way through this summer(and I made a HUGE mistake with this picture and FORGOT TO INCLUDE MY BIBLE ugh! The Bible would be at the top of the stack as I daily read in it first!~). I am not recommending any of these books as I have not finished many of them yet. But for those who wonder - this is what I'm reading! Here are the categories and titles:

My Walk with God:
Just Give Me Jesus by Anne Graham Lotz (I'm 100 pages in and it is excellent! I am doing this with a group of girls from my church! Fun!)

My Marriage:
Intimacy Ignited by Linda Dillow and Lorraine Pintus (Their book Intimate Issues is EXCELLENT and I highly recommend it)

My Parenting:
The Family by RJ Miller
Raising Maidens of Virtue by Stacey McDonald (Her book Passionate Housewives Desperate for God was an inspiring read)
Financial Peace Jr. by Dave Ramsey (for teaching our children how to manager their money - my husband will be leading the family through this)

My Homemaking:
Sink Reflections by The Flylady (This one is finished - I got it at the library. It was a good read!)

My Friendships:
Friendships for Grown-Ups by Lisa Whelchel

My Finances:
More Than Enough by Dave Ramsey

My Ministry:
Purple Cow by Seth Godin (I got it at the library and I have finished it. This is not a Christian book - it's a book that has been recommended by some of the big time bloggers so I thought I'd see what the fuss was all about.)

A book that is not in the picture but I just finished reading is "Grace Is For Sinners" by Serena Woods. Serena writes "The purpose of this book is to reach out to those who have fallen in their walk of faith and give insight to those who have watched somebody fall."

So what's on your summer reading list? Have you read any of the above - what are your thoughts on them?

Walk with the King!

I'm reading Bringing Up Girls by Dobson. Really good stuff.

I was looking at Amazon's preview of the Friendship for Grownups. I think I will be reading this soon!

Hello Courtney,
I just ordered Intimacy Ignited! I can't wait to get it in the mail, it sounds like a great book for my husband and I to read together. Other than that, I'll just be reading anything in french! (I've told myself I won't get too wrapped up in English books until we're done with language school) (Except for my English Bible, of course!)
I've enjoyed finding your blog, thanks for being a blessing!

Great list!

I just finished "Inside American Education" by Thomas Sowell, and am in the middle of "The Real Lincoln" by Thomas DiLorenzo. And then I've been reading my Bible every morning, of course! :)

I just wrote a post about the children's books we've enjoyed this summer here:

Kimmy, I wanted to let you know that as a mom of twins who exclusively breastfed, the Nurse EZ boppy was a must for starting out! Good luck with it! Having twins is so much fun.

As for books- I may be the last person on the planet, but I'm reading Purpose Driven Life with my husband. Also, That's My Son by Rick Johnson (since I have three boys)

Thank you for sharing. I admire your diligence. I am so thankful I happened upon your blog almost a year ago now:-). Currently, I am reading Blessing Your Husband; Understanding and Affirming Your Man by Debra Evans. I am gaining much needed insight and new found perspectives. Thank you for being such a blessing to me and others!!!!

This is quite a list!

I am currently reading:

1. Vintage Jesus by Mark Driscoll for Sunday School
2. Sink or Walk on Water for a Bible study (not sure of the author)
3. Heidi by Johanna Spryi with my little girl
4. Even Now by Karen Kingsbury for fun
5. 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue (not sure of the author - I'm at work)
6. A Wife After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George

And I just finished "The Happening" by Harvey Yoder about the school killing that happened in Amish Country in 2006 and the grace those people showed during this terrible time! And, of course, my Bible - doing a chronological reading and currently working through Exodus.

Courtney, I'm a little late to the party but wanted to comment on a few of the books on your list. Anything by Linda Dillow - excellent (you probably know that). I've read everything she's written and am always blessed. I've attended two Dave Ramsey seminars (took our married kids to the second one) and we've been following him for about ten years - wish we'd started earlier but it absolutely made a huge difference in our finances and being able to retire on time. Just read Lisa Whelchel's Friendship for Grownups - good read with some great lines I jotted in my quote book. This was a particular blessing to me as we just recently moved across the country, so we're starting all over making connections and I want to choose well, and be the good friend someone else is praying for. Same Kind of Different as Me is next on my nightstand and I've heard excellent things about it - happy reading!
