Christian non-fiction is kindof all the same. "We should do better. So do better. You're welcome." Peterson is the author of The Message and Subversive Christianity so he's ok at that but this filled a weird niche. For over 1400 years, Benedictines have been reciting Psalms 120-128 every day, 6 days a week. Thanks, Ben. These are no one's favorite psalms. Boring, archaic. Why, Ben, why? Now, I understand the genius behind these psalms.

"A person has to be thoroughly disgusted with the way things are to find the motivation to set out on the Christian way. As long as we think the next election might eliminate crime and establish justice, or another scientific breakthrough might save the environment, or another pay raise might push us over the edge of anxiety into a life of tranquility, we are not likely to risk the arduous uncertainties of the life of faith."

Such a good book. It has been really timely for me right now. I was encouraged to think more about emotional growth and maturity as it is paired with my faith and leadership. We often ignore emotional maturity in the church and that is a mistake. This book laid out clear principles that lead through the process of pursuing health and growth.

jessjess I haven't read this one but our study group did EHS (the blue one) and it was eye-opening and thought provoking. 3w

Fourth and final autobiography from Frederick Buechner. Each book was unique to itself. This one felt like more of an intentional journey through his life by looking at some of his treasures in his writing office. I liked each book for different reasons. I liked this one for the example he gives of living slowly with eyes to see the beauty of God.

Short little book that describes how love must be the true mark of a Christian. I haven‘t read any Schaeffer before but enjoyed this book and thought it very clear and helpful. Plan to look into others he has written.

Such a practical & helpful read for those in the midst of ‘cultivating holy curiosity‘, and also more mature Christians needing a reminder & reset back at ground zero. Also, I appreciated that Mathis was direct when compiling this book by including a lot of writing clips from other authors instead of trying to reword & regurgitate what was already previously ‘said best‘.

This right here 👆🏼

As a stay at home mother of three, I sometimes listen to the world a little more than I should. It tells me I don‘t measure up to the strong “career” women my age. When the world and those around me get me down, my husband so sweetly reminds me of this quote from C.S. Lewis.

“The homemaker has the ultimate career; All the other careers exist for one purpose only, and that is to support the ultimate career”

“Knowing your personality and your sensitivities does not excuse you from ministry. It means that you need to prepare for it differently than others might.”

I absolutely love the journey this book took me on. It was so much more than what I initially expected or anticipated. The most profound word that comes to mind for some reason is grace. And the most profound reflection was when called on to consider myself as someone God deeply loves.
