"That's our job. It's always been our job. We're supposed to just love the people in front of us... We don't need to spend as much time as we do telling people what we think about what they're doing. We're not the school principals or the bouncers or the sheriffs. In other words, stop it. Loving people doesn't mean we need to control their conduct... Loving people means caring without an agenda." Bob Goff #EverybodyAlways

I like that it says "frivolous", right there on the cover. #NeverApologize

RoxanneMilward Used to love Meg Cabot books growing up! So annoyed with myself that I got rid of them all years ago :( 2y

Reader's Bible-ESV | Crossway Bibles

I started this crazy Bible reading plan - I'm reading the whole thing in like 90 days. 📖
I read all of Genesis & half of Exodus this week, & if I keep it up I'll be done by the end of the year. 📖
It's a little overwhelming but so far it's also awesome. Crazy to see how God does what He says he will do, over & over again. 📖
(I found the plan at www.scriptureawakening.com/digital/B90-Bookmark.pdf if you want to see it.) 📖👌🏻

Texreader Beautiful cup of tea. I am off to make myself some tea! I've tried reading the Bible on my own schedule. I made it to Ruth. I need to get back to it. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. 3y
Christy @Texreader Nice! I usually like to jump around a bit more - read some New Testament at the same time I read the Old - but I'm kind of loving just reading straight through. :) 3y
Texreader @Christy I guess that's what surprised me. I've been told the only way to read it is that way because the Old Testament is so harsh. But I'm well immersed in the stories so maybe it's not a surprise. 3y

Christy @Texreader Same! I wouldn't want to read it this way every time, but I'm totally enjoying it. :) 3y
Texreader @Christy so glad to hear it!! Good luck on making it the entire length of the book!! I'm cheering you on! 3y
Christy @Texreader Thanks!! 3y
Aseleener That's a little crazy! How's it going? Still reading? I am reading through it for the second time. A one year plan; I'm almost done! Using the Bible Gateway app for ease and convenience. 3y
levi That plan is sooo hard but it's sort of fun to have such a challenge. 3y

Oh man, I just watched The People v OJ Simpson & now I'm reading the book & I can't put it down. I love a good 90s page turner.

SaraFair Does it run parallel to the show? I had the same idea, but I am reading Without A Doubt by Marcia Clark. It is very detailed but good. I have just started the actual trial and I am on page 267. 3y

I picked this one up off a recommendation from a We Need Diverse Books panel. The main character is a kid in Brooklyn who doesn't know about Sept 11 & starts learning about it for the first time in school because, amazingly enough, she wasn't born when it happened...
