I always try to have a book or two going. I particularly love to read fiction, but I’m also drawn to biographies or memoirs.
Over the holidays I read two books I really enjoyed.
First I read Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy. This is the true story of the tragedy that happened in the fall of 2008 at an Amish schoolhouse in Pennsylvania when a gunman killed five Amish children and injured five others. While the book tells the story of what happened, the focus is on the forgiveness response of the Amish community.
This is a powerful book that has really caused me to think about forgiveness and grace.
The second book I read was Sarah Palin’s memoir Going Rogue An American Life. I don’t usually get into the biographies of political figures, but this one intrigued me and I’m so glad I read it!
While there were a few times my eyes glazed over from the political terminology, for the most part I loved reading it from the perspective of “one mom to another.”
I’m curious…what have you been reading?
