Not only do I love to read, but I believe books are meant to be shared.
I always seem to be reading multiple books at once, and my stack of reads on my nightstand never seems to go down because once I finish one book I add another one to the queue. If you’re curious, here’s what I read in January:
- The Soul of Money: This is not your typical finance book. Instead, it reminds us of the power that money holds over us and the self-talk it creates in terms of sufficiency. While I didn’t love the storytelling part of this book, I came away with a huge mindset shift on how to think about money. I am learning to be much more intentional about the way I use money – from what companies I spend it on, what organizations I donate it to, what I am saving it for, what hobbies I spend my expendable money on, and how I look at the job that I make money at – because my relationship with money and where it is going is a direct reflection of my values.
- Finding God in the Waves: January was a month filled with celebration, love and deep loss. It was the type of month that led me to turn to the spirit world and really question the meaning of life. And for me, when I get introspective on life, God always pokes his head in and wants to be part of the conversation. And finally, FINALLY, a book helped me define who and what this God guy really is. This book articulated a belief system that I feel deeply but have not been able to put into words, and I recommend it to anyone who has ever felt the pull of faith without ever being able to understand it or always believe it.
