I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~Anna Quindlen, “Enough Bookshelves,” New York Times, 7 August 1991
Each Christmas we give our children books to add to their libraries. We are a book-loving family and want to cultivate that in our children. Some years they ask for a specific title and other years I choose something I think they will like. I’ve gotten good feedback from everyone this year. Dimples told me she has already plowed through her set of three books, which makes my heart happy.
This is the first time I’ve given cookbooks, but Pioneer Woman is so fun, that I consider her cookbooks to be a good read as well as a resource for recipes. Additionally, each recipe has step-by-step photos, so for my kids who are learning how to cook, the books are extra helpful.
If you are interested in reading any of Brene Brown’s books, The Gifts of Imperfection is only $6.19 right now, which is quite a bit less than what I paid for it. I may stock up on a few copies to give to friends.
Did you give or get any books for Christmas? I would love to hear from you in the comments.
We’re heading to Seattle in a couple of hours. If you think of us, please pray for safe travel there and back, and for a sweet reunion between Bee and Dimples. Pray that we will find pockets of joy and that we’ll build some healing memories with them. This feels weighty; I need to hold my hands open and let the days flow the way the Lord intends, not the way I think is best.
