Here is a list of books I discovered this past year, ordered from most influential to somewhat less influential, but all favorites!
I am still coming into an understanding of who I am as Carmen, and as an introvert. McHugh shares from his experiences as an introverted pastor and gives advice for fellow introverts.
Inspirational. I first discovered Katie’s blog in 2011. I don’t normally do this, but I read every single post. She has such a heart for Jesus and people, especially children.
So much laughter! Joel also shared a lot of new content for me personally. Now Josiah and I just need to find a farm. :)
Choosing to SEE: A Journey of Struggle and Hope – Mary Beth Chapman with Ellen Vaughn
I cried through this book. It is a must-read for anyone who has had someone close to them die, or who knows someone who lost someone. In other words, everyone should read this book.
Very interesting. Makes me wonder what refugees experience in my town.
Year of Plenty – Craig Goodwin
A gift from Mom and Dad. Thanks! This book puts into words a lot of my (and Josiah’s) dreams.
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fermenting Foods – Wardeh Harmon
Practical and fun. Takes the fear out of fermenting foods. I’m also enjoying taking some online courses with Wardeh on her site gnowflgins.com .
