These are the books we’re reading in 2018!
We love to read.
If there were a verb stronger than love, we would use it.
When Tiffany got in trouble as a kid (which
always sometimes occasionally rarely happened), the only effective punishment was to ground her from reading.
Phillip loves reading so much that he refused to leave the library when he was ill and eventually threw up all over the bookshelf. True story.
(He’s much better at taking care of books as an adult, thank goodness.)
We want to set a goal to read a useful book each month (we tend to read a lot of fun books).
If you’d like to read along with us, we’d love your input! At the end of each month, we’ll write a post up of our thoughts on the book.
Here is what we will read this year! We tried to choose books that are free with Kindle Unlimited, but we also
In April, we will be reading When God Doesn’t Fix It by Laura Story. Tiffany has read this book before, but we want to read it together again as a couple.
About the book:
Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.
Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.
