I miss reading.

>Winter break is a wonderful time. I can’t even express how much I enjoy reading whenever I want.

January 3rd was a difficult day. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to be back to work and with my wonderful students. That wasn’t it at all. It was the horrible realization that the next time I will get to read for pleasure is February 25 when I have a week off for a family reunion. Yikes. That’s far away.

Finding Our Way Again – Brian McLaren & Phyllis Tickle

>I’ve enjoyed other books by Brian McLaren (A New Kind of Christian in particular) and was excited to see a new book by him. I’ve always liked his writing style and the stories he tells. Phyllis Tickle, leader in the emerging church, is a youtube favorite of mine. Her words are hard to hear sometimes, but they are always truth that is completely necessary.

So, with that masterful combo, I was excited to read Finding Our Way Again. And I was impressed. I did not necessarily agree with everything I read, but I was pleased to learn new things and be challenged in ways I never am challenged in: the “lost” spiritual disciplines. My husband is all about spiritual disciplines and so he really enjoyed reading this book too. This book will be a good read for you if you are interested in growing in your relationship with God in unique ways.

I received this book free from the Thomas Nelson Publishers “Booksneeze” book review program. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review.
