What I'm Reading: A Lot in June {Thoughts From Me}

Every month I have several things I should be reading, though I never seem to manage to make it all the way through.  I love to share blog reviews but when you don't finish reading a book for lack of reading time, you can't really give a review.  So in an effort to change my lack of finishing things, I thought I'd share my scheduled reading for the month.

This month and next month, I will be reading One Thousand Gifts from Ann Voskamp and joining in with an online study of the book, along with others at Homemaker By Choice.  It starts on my birthday and will last until we finish the book. 

I will also be reading through 31 Days to Clean: Having a Martha House the Mary Way by Sarah Mae.  Sarah Mae has started a set of online groups for the book on Facebook.  You can join by choosing the group that fits you best at 31 Groups.  We are working through the book, doing as much as we are able, with the support of a wide variety of families similar to our own.

Another book I'm reading through is Warrior Prayers: Praying the Word for Boys in the Areas They Need It Most by Brooke McGlothlin from A Life In Need of Change.  I'm participating in the 21 Days of Prayer for Sons Challenge on Facebook.  We are a week in but already this challenge is changing our life.  My prayers for my sons are becoming surer and stronger, praying for their specific needs, strengths and weaknesses.  If you haven't heard of this eBook, then take a look today.

The previous two books are eBooks and I am reading them on my iPad daily.  There is no exact date to start or finish them, though the challenges are supposed to be finished within a month.  Since I tend to get distracted, I don't know if I'll finish in a month or not but hopefully I will manage to find a way.

I'm reading through Large Family Logistics, though I haven't managed to get very far.  I am enjoying the insights provided by this book.  I may never finish but hope to be able to work through it in time.

For review, I'm reading Second Chance Brides by Vickie McDonough.  I'm about 1/3 of a way through it but so far I have to say it's pretty great! 

So that's what I have planned to read for the rest of this month.  Look forward to more specific reviews to come.  I know I will enjoy reading through them in preparation of reviewing them for you.

Once I'm through reading these, I'm not sure what will be next.  Any favorites or suggestions from you???  Please share with me!
