Here's what I read in May!

The More of Less, by Joshua Becker: I enjoyed this book about pursuing minimalism. I’ll have a full review and giveaway coming soon!

None Like Him, by Jen Wilkin: This is an excellent book about God’s unique attributes that ought to inspire the reader to worship. I have a full review here.

Winter Men, by Jesper Bugge Kold: I got this WWII historical fiction novel from Amazon’s giveaway of upcoming releases. It was an intriguing read about two brothers who end up fighting for the Nazis though they never intended to do so.

Hands-Free Mama, by Rachel Macy Stafford: This is the prequel to Hands-Free Life, which I reviewed last fall. While this book did encourage me to be more mindful of how and when I’m using electronics, the intensely earnest and idealistic tone of the book made it a bit of a tough read.

Parables of Jesus, by James Montgomery Boice: I have been wanting to study the parables in the gospels more deeply, so I was excited to receive this book at the If: Gathering. I used it as a supplement to my Bible reading, stopping to read the chapter on a particular parable when I arrived at it while reading straight through the New Testament. Each chapter offers a look at the meaning and context of a parable while still being approachable.

Taste and See, by John Piper: I started this book in January 2015, intending to use it as a devotional for a few months. Eighteen months later, I finished! Each section is only a few pages long but is packed with meaty truth about a variety of topics.

Thanks to Modern Mrs. Darcy for two great book resources I found this month: the "What Should I Read Next?" podcast and the 2016 Summer Reading Guide. Book lovers, rejoice!
