I realize it’s been a LONG time. Far too long in fact, since I have had a post on what I’ve been reading. The last time I posted, was in MAY last year. Yikes. I’ve spent all my time since then reading and not blogging about it…sorry, and I will try harder in 2014.
I did not read all the books that I had written down on that list, but I did read a ton of books that I came across through the months.
Tam’s Top 5 (Based on the fact that I learned the most, read more than once or simply is timely based on where we are in our life’s journey)
üWhen Life & Beliefs Collide…James * I absolutely love books that make me think, question myself, challenge what I believe and examine my foundations and motivations. This book was one of those, it helped refine what I think and how to convey it.
üRevolution The Story of the New Testament Church (the first 17 years)...Gene Edwards
üEducating the Whole Hearted Child…Clay Sally Clarkson
This is a must read for all homeschoolers, and one to go back to again and again through the process.
Books I read cover to cover (the ones with stars I recommend)
üThe Alchemist…Paulo Coelho
üThe Gospel of Ruth…James
üLost Women of the Bible...James
üDumbing Us Down (The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling)…John Taylor Gatto
üLast Child in the Woods…Richard Louv *
I read most of this. It’s definitely one to keep on hand. Such a good book to come back to when you are trying to change your family habits of being indoors so much.
