From My Bookshelf to Yours: What I Read in May - Intentional By Grace
This month was a great month of reading. Here’s what I read this month!

Here’s the list I read in May:

The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss – This is a really great read for anyone wanting to run their own business or work anywhere in the world. I liked all the ideas I gleaned from this book. I didn’t read the entire thing as I found it a little much for me as I read it through the lens of my faith, but I do think it was worth reading.

Charlotte Mason’s Original Homeschooling Series Volume 1 – We lean more toward Charlotte Mason’s method of homeschooling than just about anything else. I snagged this entire series on my Kindle a while back for super cheap. I tend to read and re-read this series at the end of every school year as I gear up for a new year of homeschooling. It’s always a good reminder to me to stick to the basics and most important parts of homeschool and not get caught up in all the flashy lights and curriculums each year.

Embers of Love by Tracie Peterson – Every once in a while I get a knack for a good fiction book. My Grandmother-in-love gave me this book to read. I had no idea what to expect, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The only problem is that she only had the first book in the series … I need to find the other ones now to see what happens next!

  1. As a lover of good, wholesome, uplifting fiction I wanted to pass on a few possible sources for the rest of the Tracie Peterson series. Check your local library, at mine you can request a book from another branch. Online bookstores (amazon,, or even ebay) sometimes have a sale price quite low but you pay shipping. Books for 1 cent with shipping for 3.99 for a $4 dollar book. You can read books for free with membership to some online libraries as well as amazon prime. First, of course, pray. Our wonderful Friend, Jesus told us to ask anything in His name. He gave you your love of reading. Last of all, has anyone out there just finished the next book?

  2. Our Heavenly Father, Our Savior and Lord. Thank you for this ministry. Leigh Ann is an inspiration, her kindness and Your grace touch our hearts, even old readers like me who regret not living intentionally in the wasted decades of my past. Please continue to bless her with wisdom and provide this book in Your timing. In Jesus name, Amen.

  3. I read James Dobson’s Bringing Up Boys which was very affirming of how normal my boys are in their wildness. And then I read a book that Dobson recommended in his books called Better Late than Early. It is about delaying formal education for boys and the reasons behind it. It really rocked my plans of when I was going to start teaching my (almost 4 yo) son to read. I had already started with him (using teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons) and he was doing well. He could actually read a lot of words, but after I read this, I stopped. We are still doing bfiar but my focus had changed quite a bit. I think you would like both books and I’d be curious on your views on the latter. I don’t think I would start as late as the author recommended but it made me in no rush to continue on the path I was on.
