#19: Read Atleast 1 Book per month (September)

I did pretty good the month of September. I read 2 books, and started 2 others (I just didn't finish them in time for them to count for September.) I read "Captivating" by John & Stasi Eldredge and "Jesus Freaks" by dcTalk...both of which were AMAZING for anyone who hasn't read them. "Captivating" was without a doubt my favorite of the two, and I would instantly recommend it for every woman that is or has ever struggled with who they are and putting their past behind them. It gives a very good, biblical perspective of how God sees us and how we should see ourselves. I didn't realize it until I started reading this book, but so much of how we see ourselves is based on the way we were raised, the influences we had in our lives from other women, and our relationship with our mothers. Whether we realize it growing up or not, most of who we become is based on what we see. Our marriages are influenced by the marriages we witness, the way we raise our children is based on how we were raised and how we were treated. It was a real eye opener. It's definately one of those books that will influence and touch each person differently, so my rambling about it won't really do the book any justice. "Jesus Freaks" was the other book that I finished. I had started it earlier, but never finished it. Josh read it really quick and talked about how good it was, so I decided that it was time to finish reading what I had started. It's a really good "how-to" book. Not really filled with guidelines and rules, but more or less full of the way we should want to live for Christ. Reading our bible daily, spending intimate time in prayer, witnessing and sharing the good news with others...And it's full of stories from people who have been there and done it, particularly of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and died sharing the word of God with those who have never heard it. It was a real eye opener to how mediocre we tend to live our lives compared with some of those others out there who are sold out for Christ each and every day. I encourage EVERYONE to read both of these books. They are really uplifting and inspirational. Coming up for October, I'll have finished "The Bondage Breaker" by Neil Anderson and "The Power of a Praying Wife" by Stormie Omartian. Hope everyone out there in cyber world is doing absolutely fabulous!
