My 2013 Year-end Book Reading Schedule

With less than 3 weeks left before we close out 2013, I realize that I have about 5 books that I would like to finish reading before the New Year. There are three I absolutely want to finish.  Here are my “Top 3”.

"Accidental Pharisees: Avoiding Pride, Exclusivity, and the Other Dangers of Overzealous Faith" by Larry Osbourne
“Accidental Pharisees: Avoiding Pride, Exclusivity, and the Other Dangers of Overzealous Faith” by Larry Osbourne

This book is wrecking me from the core in a good way. Every so often a book comes across my path at a time when I have the desire to check my motives and intentions to why I serve in ministry and examine how I am serving.  Right now I am at another crossroad.  I am being asked to give more of myself and take on more responsibilities.  I am currently calculating the cost.

“My Personal Notes on Finance” by Joyce Meyer

I had forgotten I had even ordered this free resource from Joyce Meyer Ministries in paperback!  I began reading a PDF copy a few months ago.  However, the subject of Finance is one that I like to either have a reference in the form of a book or one I can access on my Kindle.  I was happily surprised to have found a copy of the book in a stack of ministry mail I hadn’t opened yet.

“Your Best Life Now – 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential” by Joel Osteen
“Your Best Life Now – 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential” by Joel Osteen

I started reading this book by Pastor Joel in October. How I was devouring books over the summer, I would have thought I would have finished reading it by now.  However, instead I am only half way through the book.  Each few pages I have had to stop and let what I just read sink in.  I didn’t realize how much I needed to renew my mind in certain areas; I have found by reading the book out loud it resonates more with my spirit.
