May Reading Challenge checkup




You know, I might just not be cut out for making a reading list a year in advance. It is nice at first to have some pre-thought-out goals, but there are so many good books I find throughout the year that making a list ahead of time can be frustrating--I want to accomplish it, but I can't always forsee the most "important" books for me to read at the beginning of the year.

All that to say, I haven't made any further progress on my "list" but I have been doing lots of reading (and I'm behind in my book reports).

So far I have read Meet Mr. Smith, by Eric Ludy, Real Food for Mama and Baby (nina plank) and The Brain that Changes Itself by Norman Doidge. I am close to finishing The One thing you Can't Do In Heaven by Mark Cahill. I am also still reading The Bravehearted Gospel (another Ludy book), but that one is on hold until I finish The One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven.

  I'm still planning to work through the study, "Quieting a noisy soul" (God is More Than Enough was taken from that study), however a couple friends expressed an interest in joining me for that and I could use the accountability. So we'll probably get that going sometime next month.

To sum up my goals for the remainder of the month:
Finish
The One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven
The Brave Hearted Gospel
Answers to Prayer

Read
Calm My Anxious Heart

I've edited my master list to reflect the changes (and added a "bonus book" list, which is basically the books I haven't had time to read because I've read other ones instead).
