Books Read 2017

One of the perks of writing books is getting a blog on Goodreads!

2017 was a good reading year for me. Perhaps because I considered it a year of rereading. Out of 108 books, 44 were rereads. About half of these were Shakespeare and though I had the goal of listening to all of his plays in Arkangel Audio editions in 2017, I only made it almost halfway. I will rename that bookshelf 2017-2018 and... Read more of this blog post »

The Chimes by Charles Dickens

3.5 Quite a bit darker than A Christmas Carol. Seems to me Dickens wants to force the moral on his audience. But I don’t think he should not have in this case.

I am rereading the Ralph Moody Little Britches series of books on audio right now being that I have no one around to read these aloud to. Truly amazing stories of resilience and familial love.

Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I read this and all of Anne Morrow Lindbergh's diaries when I was a young wife. They were somewhat guides to life for me as a young bride. A guide from someone in tune to her inner and outer life. It is no surprise that the older I get the further ...more

I never read L’Engle before last year when I was blown away by her Crosswick Journals. I picked this up after reading Andrew Peterson’s Adorning the Dark. This book touched me deeply because it admitted the connection between pain and art. Truth, ...more

“I quote much scripture in this book. I do so intentionally, without references, because that is how I believe scripture should fit into the fabric of our lives. It is not tacked on; it is woven in.”
Cindy Rollins, Mere Motherhood: Morning times, nursery rhymes, and my journey toward sanctification

“We will always have Narnia.”
Cindy Rollins, Mere Motherhood: Morning times, nursery rhymes, and my journey toward sanctification

“Mama, you are the first pillar of education. You are a vital part of the infrastructure of culture, family, and even the body of Christ.”
Cindy Rollins, Mere Motherhood: Morning times, nursery rhymes, and my journey toward sanctification

“Every week I counsel young people from solid Christian homes who are undone by their sin. As parents, we are sometimes more invested in protecting our children from the sinful influences of this world than we are in preparing them for the deep sinfulness of their own hearts.”
Barbara R. Duguid, Extravagant Grace: God's Glory Displayed in Our Weakness

“Tell the truth, but understand that it is not necessarily what happened,” is one of the things she told him. “Every good story is a parable,” is another.”
Bret Lott, Letters and Life: On Being a Writer, On Being a Christian

“[About the main character approaching death in old age, observed by her husband . . .] He saw that she had already laid down a large portion of her life long ago. Piece by piece she had given it away as she wrestled with existence, as her self was absorbed as nourishment into his life and the life of the children and the community. And laid down most piercingly, as she abandoned, one by one, the shapes of the dreams she had planned. Only to take them up again in other forms.”
Michael D. O'Brien, Strangers and Sojourners

“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“There is more reason to say grace before beginning a book than there is to say it before beginning to dine.”
Charles Lamb
