I didn’t get to do as much reading as I’d hoped in March. In fact, I fell pretty short from my list of 12 books I’d planned to read in March, but that’s life sometimes, isn’t it?! 🙂
7 Books I Read in March
- Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages
- Balancing It All
- The Antelope in the Living Room
- Fifteen Minutes
- Debt-Free Living in a Debt-Filled World
- Chasing God
- Balanced: Finding Center as a Work-at-Home Mom
My Two Favorites:
Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages — I already blogged about this book, because I couldn’t wait until this post! 🙂 If you’ve heard me give my Say Goodbye to Survival Mode presentation recently, you’ll remember that I read the Fantastic Five for Him from this book. I loved the five simple but highly impactful things Shaunti shares that wives can do to show their husbands they love him. And my husband (and other guys I’ve asked) have agreed that the list is spot on!
If you are married or planning to get married, do yourself a favor and get a copy of this well-researched book. It’s filled with encouragement and practical ideas on how to have a happier marriage.Even if you don’t agree with everything in the book, I’m pretty positive it will make you step back and examine how your actions and attitudes toward your spouse.
The Antelope in the Living Room — If you’re looking for a fun and light-hearted read on marriage, I recommend this book. It’s not deep and filled with a bunch of steps on how to have a better marriage, but it’s laugh-out-loud funny. Not only did I laugh (out loud) multiple times while reading the book (which doesn’t happen too often for me!), but I read some of the parts out loud to my husband and we had a good laugh over them together.
