Here's a little review on each book that I've finished up to this point:


#22What Women Fear by Angie Smith. This was tough! It was truthfully not a true book like I was expecting but each chapter was broken down into a different "fear" and how God helps us through these fears and what we should try to do or expect from him in different situations. I took home a lot of new information and peace of mind from reading this book and often stopped to really digest what Angie was telling me. I found myself going to my Bible and opening it to finish reading up some quotes she referenced as well as pulling out my prayer journal to jot down some personal feelings I acquired from reading specific passages in her book. Overall, I loved the book. But, I wish there was some way to tie all the chapters together. I will for sure keep it and re-read it here in a year or so because I know there were plenty of things in the book that I kinda skipped over without letting the words sink in.


Alright, now it's time to get my "focus" on and really get some books crunched away this month!! I want to finish at least half the list so I need to read 3+ books to reach that goal. I'm hoping with the small amounts of free time that I have that I can hopefully knock some books off the list!

  1. Good luck! I have four books left to finish. I think one will be pretty quick, but the other three are long and/or fairly dense in content, so we shall see!
