It has been really rainy, like the third rainiest start to a year in Houston history! And while that is not a bad thing, our yard is beautiful, it does keep me from working on a few projects. As a result I decided to tackle those last couple of boxes left in the garage that needed unpacking and I ran across a few books. I do most of my reading on my iPad these days but I have a few books that I have yet to read. So with the discovery of a few of those books I decided it was time to revisit my goal to read them.
I chose to read Designing a Lifestyle That Pleases God by Pat Ennis and Lisa Tatlock. This book is written in a bible study format but I just read it through. Have you ever wondered as a woman if you were living your life in such a way that glorifies God? I know that even though I study the Bible, I sometimes want assurance that I am getting it, do you know what I mean? With chapters like, The Wise Woman's Lifestyle Reflects Her Heavenly Heritage; The Wise Woman Embraces Submission; and The Wise Woman Creates a Beautiful Home, this book is written for intelligent women who have a desire to live a Godly life. Each chapter is backed up with an abundance of scripture. And just to be honest it is affirming in some ways, but also convicting in other areas I found myself lacking. It required thought for each chapter, but written in such a way that kept me engaged.
I would recommend Designing a Lifestyle That Please God to anyone that has an interest in affirming their calling to be a Godly woman. I would recommend it for a small group, my favorite groups are ones that have ladies of various ages and backgrounds. I think it would be both challenging and affirming.
Now I am off to figure out my next read. My plan is one book a week!
