Recent reads 9/3/15.

Here is what I have been reading recently!

1. Kley and I just finished You and Me Forever by Francis and Lisa Chan. Wow, was it convicting. It was different than a lot of marriage books we have read before. We would definitely recommend. It definitely puts things in the right perspective and points you directly towards a heavenly mindset. It talks a lot about how your relationship with God is the most important thing- more important than anything, even your family and children. While that's true and easy to type, it's harder to live out. He talks about how family is an idol sometimes, and that is very true for a lot of people I think. Family is important, very important, but it's not the most important. They also talk a lot about helping each other have a better relationship with God, how to serve better alone and together, and how to parent Biblically. It's so good!


2. American Sniper by Chris Kyle. This was a different read for me, and several people said, "You're really reading that?" when they found out I was. It's about the Navy Seal Chris Kyle, who has the most sniper kills in US history. He had four tours. He talks a lot about what his different tours were like, and I definitely learned a lot about the military and guns. It wasn't something I would typically choose, but that's also why I wanted to read it. It was good, but I don't want to read it again, if that makes sense. It really makes you appreciate the sacrifice our military makes.


3. Unplanned by Abby Johnson- This book was really good. I would definitely recommend, especially with all that is going on with Planned Parenthood right now. She tells her own story of how she worked at Planned Parenthood for eight years (and was the director of the clinic for part of that time) and how God used her and changed her heart, which made her quit her job and she now is pro-life and serves with the Coalition for Life. It's a really neat story of God working in her life!
