What I’m Reading – December


Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. – Joseph Addison

And here we are, December has crept up on us and the next thing you know we’ll cleaning up bit of Christmas tree and making goals for 2016. I keep hearing ‘where did the year go?’. As ever, I’m approaching the end of this year with a desperate plea of the soul to slow down, savour what God has for us in the quiet of Advent and the Christmas season and maybe pick up a few more books whist snuggling with my family by the light of the twinkling Christmas tree lights. Slow is a discipline, it’s intentional and some days I feel like I’m digging my heals in and dust is flying behind me – but slow is my jam, slow is on my ‘to-do’ list (wink).

So here are a few books on the shelf this month.

In the hand:

The Greatest Gift – Ann Voskamp
