This year is the first year that I have set a goal for reading. I’m currently in school and my family stays pretty busy, but after doing some research and trying to plan my days, I came across something that suggested that I should always make time for “sharpening the saw.” This term and idea was coined by Stephen Covey. I will be discussing this further in another post, but for now, I will say that it means doing what is needed to get rest and take a moment to have fun too. Fun is healthy you know?! Well, the right type of fun anyway. My reading goal is apart of me sharpening the saw. Yes 15 books is a bit much, but why not give it a shot?
The book that am reading now is “The Scarlet Thread” by Francine Rivers. She is a wonderful writer. All of the books that I have read by her have sucked me into the world that she has created and that is what I enjoy most. Sometimes it’s like going on an adventure. So that you know what the book is about, here is the summary that is included on the back cover of the book:
Young pioneer on the Oregon Trail. She is filled with anger at being uprooted from her home.
Two women, centuries apart, a joined together through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands- even themselves- until they fall into the arms of the One who loves them unconditionally.
Doesn’t that sound interesting?! Well, I can’t wait to read it. Honestly, it may take me a while and I may have to push myself at first, but I want to read this book and I’m going to…
Feel free to join me.
