I have joined in with some online friends for a book club. We are doing it simply. Hopkins Homeschool is heading it up. Each month, she will announce a theme. We will pick a book based on that theme. Read your book, or books, during the month. That’s it.
I, and some other bloggers, are going to post at the beginning of the month about our choices. Then, at the end of the month, we’ll come back and write about what we did, the book(s) we or our family read, and anything we might have done to make it special. The bloggers joining in are:Hopkins Homeschool
Life on Chickadee Lane
At Home: Where Life Happens
The Life We Build
Let’s Get Real
Homeschool Coffee Break
Tots and Me
Bossy Homeschool Mom
For the theme of Thankful, I chose to find a book that will encourage me to be thankful. When I was looking around what I had, I found two books of poetry by Beth Moore. I had never read them before and opened one up. I was immediately struck by the poetry and the vingettes she writes. I decided that these two books would be the start of my thankful books for November.
The two books are:
Things Pondered: From the Heart of a Lesser Woman
Further Still: a collection of poetry and vignettes
I am looking forward to reading about what the others are doing this month. If you would like to join in, just leave me a comment below or on social media about what you are reading under the theme of thankful this month.
Lori, At Home.
I will be interested in your thoughts, Lori. I have seen Beth speak and I grasp a lot from her ministry for women. Honestly, I haven’t picked up a book of hers for quite some time.
I caught a Kindle freebie of hers several years ago when ALL of her writings were free, around Thanksgiving time, I think. I just had never read these. I am finding them fascinating. I know she teaches some things that are unsupported in the Bible but she writes well and so much of her writing contain great Bible truths. As with anything from humans, take the meat and toss out the bones.
I think this is a fantastic idea for a book club!
I like it, also. Simple and open to fit yourself or your family.
