National Library Week 2018 – What’s On Your Shelf?

National Library Week 2018

 

It’s National Library Week 2018, April 8 – 14, 2018. I admit, I read most of my books on Kindle these days. Although, there are some books not available on Kindle. Also, many of the books I read, I do not necessarily want to keep. We have a small living space, which means we do not have a lot of extra space for book storage. Given all that, there are several books that were available at the library I’ve been wanting to read.

National Library Week 2018.

I’ve read a lot of great reviews of both Money Making Mom and One Thousand Gifts. As for Content Rules, I enjoy learning more and more in my field and feel education never truly stops. Technology and social media are forever changing, and if I’m going to work in this field, then I have to keep up with it.

 

Book Summaries:

Money Making Mom – By Chrystal Paine

When it comes to finances, many of us feel strapped and stressed, buried under bills, worried about an uncertain future. Even if money is plentiful, we long for greater wisdom to manage it well.

In Money-Making Mom, finance and family blogger Crystal Paine shares real-life stories, practical tips, and hard-won wisdom from the failures and successes that have carved her family’s path to financial freedom.

Paine blends insight with inspiration as she shares creative ways to manage money, generate income and–most importantly–live a life of deeper meaning, fulfillment, and generosity than you might have ever imagined possible.

One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

Bestselling author Ann Voskamp helps watchers ponder the questions of finding joy in midst of everything from the typical grind daily chores and deadlines to the calamity every person eventually faces.

“How,” Ann muses, “do you break the bondage of fear that has white-knuckle control on your life and instead embrace the everyday blessings that immerse you in Christ’s fullness? How can you live life with a heart overflowing with delight?”

In this study, Ann encourages participants to take on the life-changing discipline of journaling God’s gifts—to find the good in life in all circumstances. It’s only in this expression of gratitude for the life we already have, that we discover the life we’ve always wanted … a life we can take, give thanks for, and use to serve others. In it, we come to feel and know the impossible right down to our core: We are wildly loved by God.

Embark on this personal, honest and fresh exploration of what it means to be deeply fulfilled, wholly happy, and fully alive.
