Summer Reading

*Nerd alert* when I was in school I used to devour my teacher’s summer reading list by the middle of June. I usually had to re-read everything before school started so it would be fresh. Even though I no longer have assigned reading, each summer I try to give myself a list to complete. It reminds me of the good ol’ days. Here are my summer 2014 picks: photoChasing God

Surprised by Motherhood: Everything I Never Expected about Being a Mom – I’m currently reading this with Kelly’s Korner book club. It just started – join us!

The Language of Flowers

I also read Love Does and The Antelope in the Living Room while I was on vacation. Loved them both oh-so-much. Perfect beach reads – nothing too deep yet highly entertaining.

And (shameless plug alert) if you’re in the mood for some more academic reading and/or consider yourself a Baptist history buff, might I suggest my Dad’s recently published book The Resurgence of Fundamentalism in the Southern Baptist Convention: A History from 1960-1979.


Happy reading!
