I had the privilege of briefly meeting Renee Swope at The Relevant Conference. What a dear woman she is! And I was so excited about her brand-new book, A Confident Heart: How to Stop Doubting Yourself & Live in the Security of God’s Promises.
If you struggle with feelings of insecurity or worthlessness, you must read this book. It is packed with powerful encouragement to help you stop believing lies and start walking in the truth.
Unmeasured Strength recounts Lauren Manning’s recovery from horrific burns she received when the twin towers were attacked on 9/11. Some of her backstory seemed to drag on a little and I disagreed with much of her personal outlook and theology since she isn’t a Christian, but the book was overall an interesting read and I was very inspired by her determination and perseverance through unimaginable pain.
We’re studying the states right now, so we read Chocolate By Hershey as part of our study of Pennsylvania. It was fascinating to read of Milton Hershey’s rise and fall and rise again. It was also interesting how much things changed with modern industry over his lifetime.
And yes, I know, I ended up reading books that were totally not on my reading list this past week. I promise I’ll try to actually finish a few of these this next week! Maybe that needs to be one of my upcoming habits to develop?! 🙂
Currently reading: EntreLeadership, He Heard Hannah, Kisses from Katie, Becoming a Woman of Influence, and listening to Purple Cow audiobook. You can see all of the books I’ve read in 2011 so far here. Read all of my book reviews here.
