BOOKS I RECOMMEND
1. 10-Minute Digital Declutter
The Simple Habit to Eliminate Overwhelm from Technology, Social Media, and Online Distractions
by S.J. Scott and Barrie Davenport
Excellent guide to cleaning up our computers, phones, inboxes, and all things digital. It’s helped me get my digital photos finally reorganized this month.
2. Better Than Before
Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives
by Gretchen Rubin
Another great book for practically organizing our daily lives in the best way possible. Includes many how-to’s as well as why’s.
3. The Irrational Season
(Crosswalks Journals, #3)
by Madeleine L’Engle
This memoir from the author of the A Wrinkle in Time series takes us through L’Engle’s seasons of life in relation to seasons in the liturgical year. This is the January selection for the Red Couch Book Club. Join the conversation on Facebook here.
(The Giver Quartet, #4)
by Lois Lowry
Finally it all comes together. Beginning with The Giver, then Gathering Blue, and Messenger, this final book in the quartet ties up the loose ends. I enjoyed this series and recommend it for young adult reading.
5. Dirty Faith
Bringing the Love of Christ to the Least of These
by David Z. Nowell
If you don’t mind getting your toes stepped on, this book will convict you to get out there and get messy in other people’s lives. A great read to encourage us to practice our faith even when it’s hard.
