Books and Magazines

What are you reading these days?

I love to hear about people's books and what they are reading. Do you think what someone reads could tell you a lot about them? I do. Sometimes that wouldn't be good for me, but sometimes it is right on. For example, I am about 2/3 of the way through with my most recent book choice, SHEPHERDING A CHILD'S HEART by Tedd Tripp, and that would show you something about me - I am desiring to be a better parent. That is so true of me right now, and I want my children to respect me and I want to be able to discipline them into being a great child who desires to do good for God and not just me.

So, tell me what are you reading?

Also, what magazines do you subscribe to? I am bad about this and every year I have to not renew some b/c I'm always finding new ones to subscribe to! I LOVE magazines!

Here are mine:
Radiant
Relevant (Aaron's)
Today's Christian Woman (thanks mom!)
Parenting
Parents
Family Fun
Child (just got notice I'm on my last issue - I won't be renewing this one)
Rachael Ray (Aaron's)
Adoptive Families

I used to get:
Taste of Home
Cooking Light
Cookie

I know - WAY TOO many magazines - Aaron tells me this all the time. I also have them around the house everywhere. I want to read them all, and then feel bad throwing them away so I make piles to save them to give to friends!

What magazines do you subscribe to? What do you love about them? What magazine do you wish you had?

I do not have any magazine subscriptions and after reading your blog I feel like I need one...so maybe more than one.

I am reading Visioneering by Andy Stanley and Just Enough Lift for the Step I'm on by Stormie Omartian (this was a gift). I have a lot on my to read list...
