2012 Reading List

   I love to read.  Stacks of books seem to pile up all over the house — most of them half read.  Other women buy shoes; I buy books.  For 2012,  I am purposing to be a bit more intentional about my reading plan.  I hope to read 12 books and post a “Net Out” here on the blog using a  format similar to Michael Hyatt’s.

Up first will be Stumbling Into Grace: Confessions of a Sometimes Spiritually Clumsy Woman by Lisa Harper.  Lisa spoke at our Ladies’ Christmas Event at church this past December, and her wit and wisdom packed a powerful punch.  The picture on the cover of the book is ADORABLE and captured my attention.

I definitely could use a little grace as we start 2012.  Can’t you?  Want to read it together and then chat about it?  I will be posting my “Net Out” on Friday, February 10th.    The book is available on Kindle for all of you techy readers that got those new gadgets for Christmas.
