If I could buy every friend a book for Christmas....

It would be Soul Survivor...How Thirteen Unlikely Mentors Helped My Faith Survive the Church by Philip Yancey.

This for me is one of those books that has quotes I want to paint on my walls...Oh for the days when I'm not living in a future rent house and can do very personal non generic decorating things! I dream of having this book written in a children's version so that I can read it to my son and give him modern day role models. One of the overwhelming thoughts I get from this book is that life is complicated and rather than feel defeated by this complexness, I need to focus on a few. I'm not very good at "sticking with" things, but I feel the responsibility to "stick with" a few that I know I should influence for their and the worlds good.

Hey Lara! Thanks for letting me know about your blog. Good way to know what's going on with you and get to chat now and then. Proud of you for this pursuit. It is so... literate and seperate from mommyhood. I think I need more of that in my life these days.

I left the above post from anonymous, but didn't mean to be anonymous. I'll figure this out soon enough, hopefully.
