Okay, so after some prayer and reflection, I am leaning toward a new format that will allow me to write some of my own things, and continue our bible study, but on a more traditional bible study schedule. I am planning to add to the Proverbs 31, Wholeness and HERstory pages while doing a weekly bible study. Also, I would like to challenge myself by adding a book club aspect. I know – am I crazy?! I am pretty sure I can commit to it for three months – you can do anything for three months, right? The truth is, I never do enough reading and I have lots of good excuses. But I was an English major in college and the saying around our house is “books are our friends!” My husband cannot believe how many of our moving boxes are always taken up by hard backed, soft cover, homeschooling, old favorites, and reference books (just to name a few categories). Lately, I just keep ordering books and not having time to read them. That is like ordering delicious food at a restaurant then and, when it arrives, piping hot from the kitchen, leaving with no doggy bag. So somehow in 2012 I am going to commit to making time for recreational reading. I have realized that the best way of committing to something new is to make myself accountable to others (i.e. YOU). Now, in terms of a bible study, I have found something I just LOVE! Embracing Your Strengths: Who Am I in God’s Eyes (And What Am I Supposed to Do about it?), A Women of Faith Bible Study. We will discuss the study once a week and I will post regularly in the other areas (Proverbs 31, Wholeness, HERstory, book club). Tomorrow: more on goals for the New Year. Sound like a plan? And, now that I have a better idea of the direction we are heading, I will check back in later in the week with our new schedule/calendar. In the meantime, anyone else interested in committing to recreational reading?
