Book List 2012

I have been inspired recently to compile a list of books that I want to read in 2012. I am going to strive for 1 book a month. I do not have all my books decided on yet, but here is the beginning list. I added a link to each one, so you are able to see more about the book if you would like to. I will be adding to this list as I decide on the remaining 4 books. I have not decided on the order of these books yet, except January’s book is number 1 on the list.

1. The Christ of the Mount by E. Stanley Jones

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God

The Language Wars and other writings for Homeschoolers

The Case for Faith

Wild Things ~ the art of nurturing boys

Love, Laughter & Romance

The Key to Your Child’s Heart

Alternative Medicine ~ the Christian handbook

I would love to see your book lists. Leave me a comment and a link if you have a book list for 2012.

Once a month, I have a Saturday morning all to myself. My husband watches the children for the morning and makes lunch.  I spend a lot of time in reading the Bible, praying, journalling and thinking over my last month and the coming month. Each month I try to make a list of goals for the following month. Some of these goals have to do with my relationship with God, my relationship with my husband, my relationship with friends, and giving all diligence in being a homemaker. I just noticed that I don’t have any specific to my relationship with my children. I don’t always even try to get all these categories though.

1. Establish an hour of prayer every day

2. Glorify God in all I do.

3. Create a special date night for my husband and I .

4. Weigh in the _____’s – Rigid South Beach Diet.

5. Clean out Andre’s closet. 

6. Continue to blog and write articles offline.

7. Have a ladies day. Make doughnuts.

8. Get a daily check list going again. (this checklist is homemaking things that I should do each day and each day it is a little different.) I work better when I have a list to check off. It keeps me going.
