Since we were in the middle of moving, I didn’t do much reading or watching this past week. But I did stay up too late a few nights watching the Olympics (I think I’m too old for the Olympics — especially if they are going to be showing all of the best stuff LIVE at 10-11:30 p.m.!) and I also read 5 Months Apart: Facing Infertility With Faith and Grace.
Someone in my life is currently walking through some of the things in this book and I thought it would be insightful to read. While the book kind of skips around in the storyline and I think it could have used tighter editing, I still think it would be a valuable read if you are facing unexplained infertility, in the middle of fertility treatments or the adoption process, and/or know someone who is.
The author doesn’t sugarcoat struggle involved with infertility and fertility treatments, as well as the adoption process. She doesn’t give pat answers or cliche phrases. She addresses the very real and raw pain that infertility causes and miscarriage can cause and gives you better understanding for women who are walking this road.
How I Find Time to Read
People are always asking me how I find time to read. Honestly, it’s because I love to read, because I’ve chosen to prioritize it, because I don’t have a lot of other hobbies, and because I can’t not read. Also, when you love something, you usually can find ways to get creative to find time to fit it in — even if it’s in the little nooks and crannies of life.
I wrote a post on 3 ways to find more time to read — even when life is busy. And here are 7 more ways to find time to read.
