New Years Resoultions

So this year I decided that I was going to set a New Years Resolution for myself. I am not a reader, I never have been because I am a slow reader. I read everything really slow and sometimes I have to re-read things because I'm not focused on what I am reading. My Resolution was that I would read a new book every month of this year. So far I have the Twilight series this year. I really have liked it but I am drawing to the end of the series. I'm trying to come up with other books that I would like to read or that I should read. This is where I need your help. I'm looking for suggestions of good reads. I think I would like to get a wide range of books, so that is why I'm asking for suggestions. I know that everyone will have their own opinions of good books. I have a couple on my list already but if something better comes along I may move your suggestions to the top of my list. I'm hoping that by the end of the year that I will enjoy reading more and that maybe my speed will increase.

Here are a couple that I am thinking about reading at some point this year. Let me know what you think and any other suggestions that you have.

I always like Beth Moore. I've never read a book of hers. I've only done her Bible Studies. But I'm sure that I will enjoy this book just the same.

I'm interested in this book because it is a tragic true story of a group of people that climb Mt. Everest. I became interested in this story because I went to Nepal one summer and I got to see Mt. Everest. I loved being in Nepal. Being there was when I really started to sense God moving in my heart and my heart for the Nations and His people.

So let me know what suggestions that you have. There are still nine months left in the year and I don't want to miss any good books!

Busy, Busy, Busy

The last couple weeks have been really busy for us. After Valentines Day we went to St. Louis because Matt's grandmother was having a suprise 80th Birthday party. So we took some time off during Mardi Gras to go visit. It was a good weekend, but just not long enough. The next weekend I spent in Dallas for a friend's wedding and to see some family. I was so ready to get home. This past week was our Spring Break. We took a group of students over to do some work for a couple days. We had a good group go on the trip and it was a lot of fun. Matt and I have spent some timek resting this week since it was our Spring Break. Matt's parents also came and visited this week for a little while. It was good to spend some time with them. We spent some time shopping and eating out and just relaxing too. It has been good to spend some time at home this week without anything on the agenda.

A couple weeks ago I got on this Brady Bunch kick. There was a marathon on tv one day and I got excited about it and since then I have thought about all the shows and cartoons that I used to watch when I was growing up. So I did a little research to see if I could find some. I remembered that there were a couple cartoons that I liked that had a narrator, but I couldn't remember much more about them, but I found them.

Well, I ended up just posting the link to the Youtube video. Hope that you enjoy these and that they bring back some childhood memories like they did for me.
