- The Broken Way: A Daring Path into the Abundant Life by Ann Voskamp (4/5) – This is a wonderful book about how we should be more vulnerable with others. The church should go where the suffering is because that is what Jesus did.
- Lovely: How I Learned to Embrace the Body God Gave Me by Amanda Beck (3/5) –What a wonderful book. I didn’t agree with everything in this book. I do think exercising and eating healthy are very important for us emotionally, physically, and spiritually. However, It made me look at some things differently. I also learned there are fun ways we can do exercise instead of dreading the going to the gym routine. It also taught me a few things about Catholicism.
Well: Healing Our Beautiful, Broken World from a Hospital in West Africa by Sarah Thebarge (5/5) – I loved Sarah’s first book. This one is just as a good. It is about her time in medical missions where the world’s unhappiest people live (togo). I can’t imagine all the suffering she had to endure and witness. At the end of the book she also taught that we can do important missionary stuff on american soil. We can love the refugee in the USA or even our neighbor. Sarah also taught me that we have to do and say everything with love.
