A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: How I Learned to Live a Better Story by Donald Miller
I'm about 3/4 of the way through this book at the moment, and though we had a rocky start, it has gotten better and I've been challenged by what I've read. The idea of creating a story, taking the skills and abilities that God has given you and doing something with them, rather than waiting for something to happen to you, has struck a chord. As a caveat, that there are Rob Bell-esque tones in here, but I have read this book much as I would any secular story - testing everything against the Truth of Scripture and using discernment.

One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler by Tsh Oxenreider
I'm half-way through this book and already have been encouraged by some of the simple projects that make big impacts. For example, Project 12 - Clean Your Kitchen As You Cook. It seems like a no-brainer, right? However, we can all use a reminder now and then, and ever since I got mine in One Bite, I've made an effort to clean out the sink each night, keep up on unloading/loading the dishwasher, and making sure that the kitchen stays fairly clean as I cook. OH.THE.DIFFERENCE. it has made in attitude and the whole feel of the house. Although meant to be read over the course of a year, I just can't put this ebook down!


  1. I finished George MacDonald's Fantastes and Virgil's The Aeneid, am still working on Hypatia by Charles Kingsley, and am in the middle of The Pirate Hunter by Richard Zacks.

    I LIKE these "On My Nightstand" posts! :)

  2. Oh man...I loved that entire Father Rim series. Return To Holly Springs was a little darker. But I enjoyed getting to know more about why he was so wonderful.

    I just finished Helmet For My Pillow about a WWII Marine in the Pacific front.

  3. Jamie - So glad you are enjoying them (I am too - especially when people tell me what THEY are reading, like you do!). :-)

    Micah - Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! "Helmet for My Pillow" sounds like an interesting book.


A reminder: there are more than 400,000 words in the English language, please use them wisely.
