Book Club

Somewhere around three years ago, we started a Deseret Book Club. I can count the number of times I have missed it on two fingers. I had a collection of lds books and I had started to read most of them. The trouble is that I would get distracted or disinterested. With the book club, I have read at least a book a month and sometimes more. I find it so easy now and also rewarding. I have read some books that have touched my heart (or head) greatly. I told Corey that book club has done so much for our marriage. So this month we are reading a book called "21 Days Closer to Christ" by Emily Freeman and paintings by Simon Dewey. Wonderful book. You have about 2-3 pages to read each day and then something to reflect on each day for 21 days. The paintings in the book are beautiful.

Our ward does a Relief Society book club once a month. THe most recent book (and I HIGHLY recommend it) is "For the Love of a Child" by Monica Blume and Gideon Burton. Yes, it's about adoption, but I think everyone should read it. It give such a great perspective of adoption and the process that birth parents go through. It's awesome.
