It's the beginning of the year, and by now I normally have my list of books to read ready to go.
While I have an idea of some of the things I want to read this year, I haven't committed to any new books just yet.
I do, however, have a few that I have read before that I'll be reading again in 2017.
In my quest for personal growth, I find that my reading preference is right in the line with self help, autobiographies, and motivational reads.
This past year as I challenged myself to read more I got hold of some good ones. A few of them that I plan to pick back up. And I'm sure I'll grab something from them that I didn't get on the first go round.In need of reads for your 2017 reading list? Here are 3.... #personalgrowth Click To Tweet
3 Books To Read For the Growth Seeker
I read it as my read for January 2016 as I was challenging myself to read a book a month. That was my way to get back in the habit of reading and actually holding a book.
This. Was. The. Perfect. Kickoff.
It was the perfect book to start the challenge and the perfect book to start the year.
I read it and then listened to it on audiobook because hearing it in Shonda’s voice changed the whole dynamics. In a good way!
There is something about your internal motivation clock that resets when the clock strikes midnight on January 1. This book supported every single bit of that feeling.
It made me channel my inner warrior princess/badass/I can and I will.
I honestly couldn't t find a better word than badass to help you understand, forgive me.
I will definitely read this again. In January. In a matter of days, again. This time with the journal that she now has to go along with it.
But again this book was RIGHT ON TIME!
It had an influential part in me choosing PUSH as my word of the year for 2016.
I read this book after seeing the movie war room.
It is truly a good book for someone who needs to increase in prayer, get back to prayer, learn how to pray. All of that!
The good book
I probably used my bible more in the last year than in the entire ten years or so that I have had it.
I specifically asked for this bible that I have because my favorite aunt had it. When I would pick hers up from time to time, my twenty something year old self actually understood and related to it.
It's a Woman's bible and it has side notes of stories, testimonies and so on that are very relatable. It asks questions that makes you examine yourself. You can find it here if your interest is peeked.
It makes bible reading fun and less intimidating. I feel like I learn when I read it. And I live to learn.
In 2016 I intentionally had a focus on prayer, reading more, feeding my soul and growing. It's all themes I plan to carry into 2017.
These three books helped with all that, so that's why they make the cut.
