What book(s) did you enjoy reading while you were growing up?
I have always viewed books as a gateway to the world of imagination and learning. Growing up on R.L. Stine’s Fear Street Series and Janette Oke’s Love’s Abiding Joy Series gave me a look-see into two completely differnet worlds during my youth. I had the pleasure of reading about a world of mystery, suspense and slight darkness while simultaneously reading about a world of faith, hope, and light. These worlds helped me cope with my own because I became the characters and I saw different outcomes that accompany various choices in life.
What are your books of choice now?
For me… now-a-days I read the Bible and devotionals. I also stick to my mysteries, thrillers, motivational writes and more.
My last book was The Little Book of Hygge & now I am reading part two of that… The Little Book of Lykke. These two books are showing me how Europeans view happiness. They are written by Meik Wiking who is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen Denmark so naturally the books have merit. Reading these have helped me to live more “in the moment” by making the best of each interaction or activity. Living a warmer more fulfilled life comes when we choose to be happy with now.
Have you read either one of these? What are your thoughts?
I hope that you are all doing well and I look forward to hearing from you!
