A stack of 11 books on a book shelf. 
The stack includes
The Odyssey by Homer
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Changes are coming our way!

I’ve been a homeschool mom for — oh, I’d say — seven years now.

But, things are changing.

You see…

My daughter wants to make the leap to public school. 😳

(This emoji completely depicts how I feel right now.)

But, it is her life, not mine. And, she is super excited to experience traditional school, lockers and all.

So here we go.

Yesterday, we hung out with the speech therapist for her first evaluation. And, while I sat outside waiting like a good mother, I noticed this stack of books on a nearby shelf.

And, three stuck out to me. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

My favorite book of all time.

It was like a nod from God saying, “I know you’re here.”

And, it made me wonder…

What’s YOUR favorite book? I’d love to know for two reasons:

1. I love to know all about you!

2. Maybe I’d love it too!

And, if you’d like to share WHY you love it, GO FOR IT!

Have a blessed weekend! If you haven’t read any Ray Bradbury, please think about adding him to your to-be-read list. He’s phenomenal.

  1. My favorite is Keeping a Princess Heart in a Not So Fairy Tale World by Nicole Johnson

    Promise : Our King is coming and our hearts must be ready for Him.

    My favorite scripture passage used in this book is:

    Don’t give up! I know it looks as though everything is falling apart on the outside. Look with the eyes of your heart at what is happening on the inside. The King is making a new way for you, grace upon grace. What you’re going through right now seems crushing, but don’t lose sight of what is coming. There is far more ahead than what meets the eye. What you see now will not even be here tomorrow, but what you can’t see just yet will last forever!
    2 Cor 4:16-18

    1. This book sounds amazing! I’ve never heard of it and know I’d love it. Thanks for sharing it with me! When did you first read it?

  2. I was in my late twenties when I read it! It was exactly what I needed to hear! A Bridegroom King was coming for His Bride!!

    1. I love this!!! I will check it out!

  3. I don’t read much anymore. But I was into it my favorite book was The Great Gatsby. The way that the development of the characters grabbed and dragged me through the pages was what kept me in it. I will say there is another book that I am reading piece by piece that I just can’t wait to see what happens next.

    1. I have never read this book but think of it often. I’ll add it to my to be read list! What other book are you reading?

      1. The Secrets of Claymore Castle

      2. Haha you should tell more people about it! I heard it’s a great read. 😁

  4. My fav one To kill a Mockingbird, it’s a good one. Best of luck to her for a new start, mine is going to start in the next session, m crossing the figures 😉

    1. This is such a powerful book, and one if my absolute faves I actually remember enjoying in school. Thanks for the reminder. I may need to re-read this one as a seasoned adult.

  5. Praying all goes well for you and your daughter as she goes to traditional school. I’ve read so many books it’s hard to choose, but a really good one is Simple Prayer Simple Life by Joyce Meyer.

    1. Thank you so much. We need the prayers! So far everything is going pretty easily, and I know that’s all God.

      I used to listen to Joyce Meyer all the time! In one of her teachings, she talked about how the Armor of God is only on your front because God doesn’t intend for us to run away. GOOD stuff! That has stuck with me for years.

      Thanks for stopping by! And, thanks for sharing your favorite book with me. 😁💖

      1. You’re welcome! 💕

  6. anything by Dean Koontz and Harlan Coben

  7. He is truly a delight to read.

    1. Isn’t he? I need to look up his books again and pick a new one I haven’t read. His works feel so diverse to me. From stories about summers and family to our future lives to creepy guys at amusement parks. His talent was immense.
