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:
The One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven
The Brave Hearted Gospel
Answers to Prayer

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).
