Reading right now...

I'm trying to use my free time to read a little more often, and I got a gift card to Half Price, so I'm reading a few new and old things. Here are some, in no particular order...

A Prayer for Owen Meany (Modern Library)

A Prayer for Owen Meany
by John Irving
Bought this a couple of months ago, in an effort to read some quality contemporary fiction. It's definitively thought-provoking so far. I've only got 250 pages to go...

A Perfect Wedding: Inviting the Author of Romance to Make Your Day Beautiful

A Perfect Wedding: Inviting the Author of Romance to Make Your Day Beautiful
by Eric and Leslie Ludy
Out of all the wedding books I've read, this is definitely the best, because it looks at the heart of what a wedding is about, and it's super short and easy to read! I love it because it expresses the Biblical big picture of marriage, and focuses less on details and planning. I've already read through it once, and now I'm going back through to review the highlights.

The Excellent Wife: A Biblical Perspective - Study Guide

The Excellent Wife
by Martha Peace
This book used to intimidate me. Ok... still does. A lot. I learned about it in one of Christine's Sunday School classes, and I've watched several engaged friends read it. Now I'm just getting started in it, but I know it's going to be really refining and challenging.

Rhythm Vision: A Guide to Visual Awareness
Rhythm Vision: A guide to Visual Awareness
by Dennis Roth
Randomly found this in Half Price, so I have no idea what it'll be like. I really hope it's good, it sounds really interesting, seeing the world around you with different eyes.

Feminine Appeal
Feminine Appeal
By Caralyn Mohaney
Love the heart of this book: pointing others to the Gospel by the way you live as a woman.


  1. yay! glad you are reading Excellent Wife. I also really really like Feminine Appeal so I hope you like it too.
    love you!

  2. i LOVE a prayer for owen meany. can we PLEASE talk about it when you're done?
    i know irving is hard to get through but so thought provoking & discussion inducing.
