Then...then I had 2 kids. I'm also working full time, have 2 dogs, a husband, trying to cook, laundry, cleaning, feeding, bathing, working out, sleeping (sometimes) and reading was just not on the top of my "to do" list. I really want to get back into reading, it makes me feel...smarter..if that's possible, and makes me feel calm and relaxed and I know it's just good for the brain!
So, I bought a book today that I have been wanting to read. "Choosing to SEE" by Mary Beth Chapman--ya know, Steven Curtis Chapman's wife! (I'm not ashamed to admit, I had a serious crush on him during his "Saddle Up Your Horses" faze)
I've read many articles and watched many You Tube interviews regarding their family and the loss of their little girl. As a mom, this hits me to the core. Just the thought........
I love how she is so honest about her faith and her struggle in her faith! I think more Christians should be this way. We are not perfect. We don't have it all together every second. God never promised us that our lives would be full of roses and rainbows...and I think so many Christians and NON-Christians miss that. I just bought this on my lunch break today and I'm already on Chapter 6. I have this feeling I will be up late tonight until the book is finished (you know when the kids are in bed and laundry is put away!) I'm already sucked in.
I will give my 2 cents when I'm done reading..which very likely could be tomorrow!
