Hello Book Lovers!
Did you know February is National I Love to Read Month?
Yes, it is apparently a thing–although I think every month should be I love to Read Month.
But, you know I’m not one to pass up a celebration…so to honor this month, I thought I’d share a list of what I’ve been reading so far in 2019.
by Cloud & Townsend
When to say yes and know how to say no in order to take control of your life and set healthy, biblical boundaries with your spouse, children, friends, parents, co-workers, and even yourself.
by Diane Chamberlain
A novel about a young woman and how her family’s good intentions go awry in difficult and tragic circumstances. This was our book club pick for our last meeting. To learn more about how to start your own book club, click HERE.
by Bridging the Gap
A 31-day Devotional on discovering joy and peace in God’s perfect plan–written by 31 different women, including yours truly. One of my work goals is to reflect my faith and honor Him in what I do, so this is a very special project to me and one I am grateful to be a part of.
Grow Your Business
by Mark LeBlanc & Henry Devries
How independent consultants deliver value to clients and grow their business. Mark is one of my mentors and I decided it was time to re-read this guide for small business success.
Styling for Instagram
by Leela Cyd
A visual tutorial on creating and curating beautiful shots for Instagram. Those of you who know me, know photography is not one of my skills, therefore I’m not particularly active on Instagram. I’m hoping this will inspire me to snap a few more pics and join the Insta-bandwagon.
Death by Meeting
by Patrick Lencioni
A blueprint for leaders who want to eliminate waste and frustration among their teams, and create environments of engagement and passion. I chose this because I am serving as the president of the Forum of Executive women this year and I want our meetings to be both productive and fun.
Brain on Fire
by Susannah Cahalan
A powerful memoir of one woman’s diagnosis, disease and struggle to recapture her identity. This one caught–and kept–my attention due to the author’s honest recount of the most difficult time of her life.
Girl, Wash Your Face
by Rachel Hollis
A self-help, inspirational book that encourages you to stop believing the lies about yourself so you can become who you were meant to be. I saw Rachel speak in Fargo last month so I had to read her latest book!
Up next is a recommendation from my daughter, Brooke:
The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden
by Jonas Jonasson
A tale of how one person’s actions can have far-reaching—even global—consequences.
I’m always looking for reading recommendations. Please leave me a comment below and tell me what you are reading this month!
