Boundaries sounds like a good read! Some of my recently-read favorites are: The Hunger Games, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, Unbroken (amazing!), and Nothing to Envy. The husband and I are about to start The Momentary Marriage by John Piper.

Have a great week!

Bubble tea: First off, delish. Second off I really have a hard time believing the Asians invented this first. It is a tasty sweet drink, mixed with a nice chewy snack, all in the same cup. Very American if I do say so. Although the more traditional flavors, such as my favorite Red Bean, don't come across as American...obviously. :)

Almost done with A Praying Life by Paul Miller and it is rocking my world!

Boundries was a really helpful book for me, I hope you continue to enjoy it! I just finished Glass Castle and it was fabulous. Have a great week!

I recently finished the Hunger Games series, The Help, Ape House and Eat, Pray, Love... And loved them all. Now with the start of a new graduate school semester - all I will be reading is Engineering Statistics. Yuck.

I started My Utmost for His Highest a few weeks ago, and I've also been working on Purpose Driven Life and The Invisible by Arloa Sutter. There's three or four more on my night table that I'm only halfway through - I have a bad habit of starting new books before I ever finish the old ones. :)

I'm currently reading Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay and The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffeneger. Both are phenomenal, although Sarah's Key can be a bit difficult to read at times, due to the nature of the book.

I'm currently reading Think by John Piper (as sort of a study with my boyfriend) and Peter Pan because it is magical. "Oh, the cleverness of me!"

The help and the hunger games series!!!

That (Boundaries) book is awesome!! Hope you enjoy it... it's a tough one! Currently reading "The Power of a Praying Wife" by Stormie OMartian It's interesting reading it since I'm not married or dating anyone and just praying for my future husband!

I spent this past week at the beach so I did quite a bit of reading.
I read The Help, Heaven is for Real, The Clothes on Their Backs, and The Red Tent. I'm almost done with Miz Lil and the Chronicles of Grace, but I've also started Miracles and The Abolition of Man, both by C. S. Lewis. Earlier in the summer I read The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges. It was fantastic.
I've read 12 books this summer. Quite prolific for me.

I love that the food truck trend is moving into Dallas (although, sad I missed the gathering on Saturday!)

I just started the Mitford Series by Jan Karon which I love, love, love!

Currently reading for the 3rd time Simply an Inspired Life. It really seems to put everythin in this world in perspective, especially if you are getting through a rough patch.

I read Boundaries and Boundaries in Marriage both this summer. :) Currently have my nose in The Five Love Languages and WEIRD. :)

Hunger Games! Also, Forgotten God---took me a while to get through it (you have to process so much) but it pretty much taught me things about the Holy Spirit that my church never dared to talk about.

Today's Letters said...
