From My Bookshelf to Yours: What I Read in January

From My Bookshelf to Yours What I Read in January - Intentional By Grace

I didn't create a reading list for this year. Instead, I challenged myself to a reading challenge. You can read more about my 2015 Reading Challenge here. This month I challenged myself to read at least one book on grace, but as I expected, I didn't read just one book. Because I love hearing what other people are reading, I thought it would be fun to share what I read this month. Here's the Continue Reading

But this year I want to change things up a bit. This year I'm not making a list of books to read. Not exactly. Instead I'm challenging Continue Reading

My top 10 favorite books from 2014_edited-1

I love reading! Reading is my absolute favorite thing to do. My perfect day is spent curled up with a book on the couch sipping coffee. Now that I have a Kindle (I got this one with my birthday money on Black Friday), I'm reading books faster than ever. Every time my husband turns around, I've started a new book. I admit that I drug my heels on buying a Kindle. I love holding a physical book Continue Reading

My goal is to read 25 books this year, which means I need to read at least two to three books a month to meet this goal.

15 Ways to Make More Time to Read

15 ways to make more time to read

When I posted my reading list for 2014, I had a few people ask me how I make time to read. This is such a wonderful question and one I'm excited to answer! I love reading because I love learning!

Getting my book taken away was always the ultimate of Continue Reading

4 Chapter Books {I Plan} to Read with my Three Year Old

4 chapter books to read with a three year old.

I set the goal to read four chapter books with my three year old. He loves reading, and I adore reading with him. Sometimes we get out of routine, and it's several days before we pick up a storybook. However, reading is a natural (and very important!) part of our homeschool preschool. We read plenty of books that are on my toddler's level (like the ones from our Before Five in a Row Continue Reading
