Every time I am late (which is far too often than I care to admit), I am reminded of that quote. I need to print it out and hang it in multiple rooms of my home! Adding that memoir to my list.

I am so intrigued by the book by Barnabas Piper, as well as the one by Mary Laura Philpott. They both look enjoyable and thoughtful in their own regards.

This month, I am reading Hansen’s Timothy Keller (as I’m sure you are/will be soon), a fiction book called A Murder at Balmoral which I can’t decide if it’s clever or too cheesy, and Habits of the Household by Earley.

A Swim in the Pond in the Rain was one of my FAVORITE books of last year, squeezed in just at the end of December! I love nerdy literature-obsessed books! Another book that's similarly nerdy but so different is Alan Jacobs' Breaking Bread with the Dead. 😍

I'm so glad you're enjoying Bomb Shelter - can't wait to keep hearing your thoughts!

On my nightstand: Second Sons by David Oliver Relin (a book about two doctors who made it their mission to eradicate blindness in Nepal), Raising Emotionally Strong Boys by David Thomas, and Devoted by Tim Challies (as you know). I really need a good fiction read... I recently finished Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin and it was quite good.
