Online Book Club – February

Trying to find where to head with the theme for this month – love.

Seems sort of cliche for the month, doesn’t it? And we don’t really do Valentine’s Day in our family. Never have, really, as it seems to be more of the infatuation sort of “love” that is focused on for the holiday. But we do want to acknowledge that love is important and part of what we need in life. Really, though, we need to be focusing on God’s love and that is where I hope to show my heart to my girls.

With that in mind, I have been wanting to approach the CS Lewis book The Four Loves once more. We listened to it a few years ago on audio, with Lewis doing the reading but I would like to see if I can find it in print for a reasonable price.

The next one I have on my reading list this month is a daily devotional called My Mother’s Quilts: Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family, and Faith by Ramona Richards. I have read this one before and really like it. The quilt has always represented a showcase of love in my mind as I saw my great-grandmother and grandmother work so hard on them during their lives. So, this one is a sweet devotional focused around the quilt.

The last book I have in my stack for this theme is another read-through of Keep A Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot. This lady stands as an embodiment of showing the love of God to others throughout her lifetime and her writings bring that through well. I have read this one out loud with my girls before and I want to read it on my own now. I enjoy the writing of Elisabeth Elliot and if you have read her writings, you should. Through The Gates of Splendor is an amazing look at the work of herself and others in the jungles of Central America.

I am sure I will find others to pick up along the theme during the weeks of February and there are tons of children’s books that fall here but these are where my mind is at this time of the month, so here you go.

Blessings,
At Home.

      Thank you. I am halfway through My Mother’s Quilts and loving it just as much this read as I have in the past. And it makes me want to quilt. 🙂

    I’m having a hard time coming up with love themed books for this month. I’m thinking about doing a post simply on books I love to read. 🙂 I dunno…….

      Makes sense to me for the topic of love. Love is such an overused word. I am guilty of that also. I would enjoy reading a post of your favorite books.
