One fun factoid about my hubster is his amazing ability to spit out truth bombs when you least expect it (or want to hear it!).  I bring this up because we were talking about our 2018 goals, one of which is to read more books.  Insert his truth bomb:


Love, if you want to serve others, you need to stay up on your material.  Consider reading a new book every few weeks to staying in the 'know'.

{ boom }  

Right!?!  Yet he is spot on!  However, with all the items on my "Ta Da" list already, WHEN am I suppose to find time to read?  Then it hit me:  if it's important to me, I will find the time. 

Finding time = giving up on my Netflix series binge watching (most nights). 


But what TYPE of books did I want to read... business strategy? spiritual? personal development? chick lit?  documentaries?  nutritional books? cookbooks? 

I figured let's simplify things a wee bit and narrow down the categories to THREE and unfortunately chick lit didn't make the cut.  Although, anything by Laurie Notaro is a great place to start!  

 Here's my list (in no particular order) with the goal to read ONE book in each category every month!

Whew!  The list is a wee bit overwhelming, but no doubt I'll hit a majority of them!  Better to AIM high and to almost reach it than to aim low and succeed, right?  

Question for you, what are YOU reading this year?  Or what book spoke to you in the past that's not on this list?   Help me out!  


* Bible:  Now.  I realize the bible will not be read in the course of ONE month; however, I'll be following a guide.  It is set to help you read the bible over the course of the full year in chronological order.  This handy-dandy guide was discovered here on the "she works HIS way" website! 


Grit + Gumption. 






There's only two currencies in life:  time and energy. We may not be able to generate more time, but you certainly can generate more energy.  Let me show you how!


The quote, "A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one", is one of my favorites as it celebrates the ability to be passionate about more than one thing.  A few of my passions shared on this website include: business strategy, biohacks, books and badsass endurance events.
