reader. 2012 books


7: an experimental mutiny against excess by Jen Hatmaker (a journal-like read of a woman’s attempt to simplify life). If you haven’t read much of her books, she is sarcastic and see’s life through a lens of humor. It is unfiltered and read writing (some may love it, others hate it). I am one that loves her style of writing!

Evolving in Monkey Town by Rachel Held Evans (struggling to answer questions, she contemplates heavy and controversial topics in Christianity…most we disagreed with, but it stimulated good conversation about we define as truth)

Through Painted Deserts by Donald Miller (lighthearted story of his cross-county road trip). We read this during the first few weeks of Ethan’s life and it kept us awake (and engaged in the story!) during weeks of late-night-feedings.

Girl meets God: a memoir by Lauren F Winner (a woman’s struggle to combine her Jewish heritage and new Christian faith)

Scouting the Divine: my search for God in wine, wool, and wild honey by Margaret Feinberg (she searches to better understand common Biblical lifestyle of Shepherds/vineyards and other examples by visiting real-life examples today)
