In 2023, I set a goal to finish one book per week.I’m aiming to listen to 30 minutes of an audiobook per day (while cooking, cleaning, and/or driving) and read 10 minutes of a book. By doing this, I hope to fairly easily be able to finish one book per week.
you can follow along on GoodReads to see what I’m reading, what books I finish, and the star rating I give each of them.
Here are the two books I finished recently:
Book #10: God is Still Good
If motherhood hasn’t been at all like you envisioned, I think Katie’s story and the hope she has in the midst of it will be a great encouragement to you. She shares how they got the diagnosis of one of their children receiving the diagnosis of having a genetic condition and what it was like to process that. Later, after genetic testing, two of their other children were also diagnosed with the same condition.
This is her journey to learning to hope and trust in God while walking through a really difficult season with her children’s health. She also experienced a miscarriage and that was heartbreaking in the midst of all of this.
I would have loved for her to share a little bit more storyline from the diagnosis and weave more of what it’s been like to walk through that in the book. She shares about it, but it felt like it was more in really short snippets instead of being fleshed out deeply. I totally understand if she didn’t share more because it was her kids’ stories, but I’m just the kind of person who really finds in-depth stories engaging and found myself wanting more of their story in the book.
I so appreciated what she shared on my podcast episode with her and if you’re interested in hearing more of their journey and story, listen in here.
Verdict: 3 stars
Book #11: Every Woman a Theologian
I feel like I’m one of the last…
