I am LOVING this book! I am about half way through it and already I HIGHLY recommend it if you are raising boys - especially if you are like me and have come from a family of girls. So far, I have learned about the importance of our role as parents, and about the biological and chemical stimuli causing b to stuff everything in the toilet!
Bringing Up Boys
It is pretty typical for me to have several books going at once. Prior to having the boys, I could sit and finish a book in a day. These days, I have to eek out time here and there.Here are the books I am currently reading:
Bringing Up Boys
I LOVE Beth Moore Bible Studies and I LOVE history "stuff". I am in Week 2 of this historical study and it is quite interesting. In the past, most of the studying I have done has been in the New Testament. I am really enjoying this Old Testament study! The more I study the Bible, the more I see how valid and true it is, regardless of what the mainstream media and new age folks would say. I will admit, I had doubts and questions, and this last year I dug into 4 Bible Studies and at some point it just "clicked" with me that God's Word is TRUE.
A sweet friend gave me this book. I am about half-way finished with it as well. It is all about how a man has an innate need to be respected (whether he deserves it or not) and how a woman has that same kind of need for love. I can appreciate the principles outlined in this book, and they are directly tied to scripture as well. I am not sure I totally relate to this "love need" as I have always been so independent, but it totally makes sense. It is based on Ephesians 5:33 Each one of you must love his wife as he loves himself and the wife must respect her husband. So far I have learned about how the "Crazy Cycle" caused by a lack of love and respect can trouble your marriage. Now to this, I can totally relate!
I will report more as I finish these books and give a final review. What are you reading?
