3 books I recently completed


Welcome to my book update post, where I will share my recently completed books + my honest thoughts and star ratings on them.

My reading goals for 2021

In 2021, I set a goal of reading 3 books per week — One fiction book, one non-fiction book and one audiobook every week. I know this is a bold goal, but reading is something I like. It is a way for me to learn, challenge my mind, improve the abilities of writers and communicators, and gain spirit and encouragement through inspiring stories.

I have several bookshelves full of books (Mainly I gained freedom), so I decided to select 52 books from my bookshelf to read this year (see Here is a list of 52 books I plan to read in 2021). I also read other books that I found/sent that sparked my interest. In addition, I plan to read a lot of audio books (I get my free from the Libby app).

These are the three books I recently completed…

As parents, our heart is to cultivate children who know how to think, fight through their beliefs and the reasons for their beliefs, and be able to be independent of their beliefs even if no one else agrees.

If you are a Christian parent and strive to know how to help your child solve difficult topics from a biblical perspective, then Mama Bear Apologetics is well worth reading. You may not end up agreeing with the author’s beliefs or beliefs in all areas, but this book will make you think and examine who you believe, why you believe it, and how you interact with other people around your beliefs. Moreover, it will also help you to better have meaningful conversations with your children.

One of my criticisms of it is that I feel that the first part of this book is a bit based on fear. Like, if you don’t know how to conduct these conversations and you don’t teach your kids about it, there are all the bad things that can happen here. Although I understand that it is important to empower our children to challenge cultural lies, but I think we should not do this out of fear, but out of the desire to point our children to Jesus and use our lives to glorify him, because we So loved by him. I want to make sure that I raise my children out of faith and not fear.

Rating: 4 stars

I listened to this on audiobooks, and although I think this is a lot of things I have heard/learned/thought of before, it is a good review. Sheila tells this audiobook. I like her Scottish accent and her lively story and honesty.

If you are new to prayer, if you are frustrated with the thoughts of prayer, or if you are cynical about prayer, I think you will especially like this book.

Rating: 3 stars

This audiobook can be listened to for free on Libby, because I often like Karen Kingsbury, so I downloaded it. After listening to a few chapters, I realized that I thought I might have read or heard it a few years ago. As it progressed, I realized that I had, but I put enough energy into it, and I continued to finish it!

This is not one of my favorite Karen Kingsbury novels, but in general, it is a good listen. This reminds us of how our decisions have such a profound impact on others-for better or for worse.
