You guys, it’s February. Can you even believe it? Normally I’d be suggesting that we all snuggle up with warm blankets, mugs of tea, and a pile of books, but it’s not feeling much like winter around here. It’s all good, though. You can still grab your tea and a pile of books and hibernate for the heck of it. I know I’d like to!

I got a good bit of reading done last month despite being super busy! I’m glad to have a little “me time” even when things get hectic on my calendar. I made my way through Jen Hatmaker’s For the Love, Alicia Michelle’s Plan to Be Flexible, Frank Viola’s Reimagining Church, and Anne Milam’s Bloom Where You’re Planted. I even had time to sneak in an unpublished sequal written by my dad and start one of my books for this month.
Like I said, I was super busy this month. A road trip that took way longer than it was should have was the only way I pulled off all of this reading! The only one I’m still working on from my January list is Keep it Shut. I can already tell you that the Lord wants me to savor that one. I need to let that message simmer for a while, but I am working through it!
February Reading List
Enough about January, right? Here’s a look at what I’m reading this month:
I’ve already started this one and had to keep two or three highlighters on hand to get me through. It’s just so stinking good. (Look at me, writing with Charlotte Mason’s verbiage and whatnot. Not really, though.) Books like When Children Love to Learn are such great affirmation about our life as homeschoolers. My only regret is that I’m reading it seven years into our homeschool journey.
I’m so excited to be a part of this launch team and can’t wait to share my thoughts on 5 Habits with you!
This one’s been on my wishlist for a few months and I’m happy to finally add it to my reading list. I took advantage of a rocking Kindle sale a few weeks ago and here we are! I’m so looking forward to this read! I’m pretty sure this is a message I need desperately.
Can I just take a second and tell you how much I LOVE what I’m learning about Sacred Holidays? If you haven’t made plans for Lent, this is what you’ve been holding out for! I’m super excited to be going through their Redeemed Lent Study and would love for you to join in too. There’s a print version available (hurry and order now so you’ll have it in time), but there’s also a digital version. This isn’t just for ladies, either … there’s a great study for the guys as well!
Back to what I love about Sacred Holidays: the heart for ministry is so big with these folks. Seriously. If you’re in a season of financial strain, they don’t want you to be excluded. Hop on over to Sacred Holidays and put one of these super generous coupon codes to use:
- On church staff or non-profit? Use CHURCHSTAFF to get 50% off your order.
- Have you adopted? Maybe your currently fostering. Either way, use FOSTERADOPT to get 50% off your order.
- Have you been hurt by church or Christians. It happens, but we want you to find your place in God’s arms again. Use HELPMEBELIEVE to get the digital version for free.
- No special circumstances other than the fact that you can’t spare the $20? Don’t let your lack of funds stop you from participating. Use AGIFTJUSTFORME to get the digital version free.
It’s a good thing I had Prissy with me the last time I was at the library because I had no idea what kind of fiction I wanted. She grabbed this book for me and it was literally a random “here’s a book for you, mom” moment. I have no idea what to expect, but figure her selection is a worth a shot. (FYI, this one was free for Kindle the last time I looked!)
What’s on your reading list for February?
