Twitterature {October 2013}

Every month, Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a Twitterature Link-up as, “a place to share short, casual reviews of books…” There are always plenty of awesome recommendations and reviews, so if you’re looking for suggestions, head on over and hop around!

Oddly enough, this month I am committed to reading 30 minutes before bed as part of my Change 3 Challenge, and I actually read fewer books. I absolutely love reserving that late night reading time; however, I think I am “stealing” less reading time during the day because I know that I will be reading later…hmm, not sure how I feel about that?! (I also read portions of a few books, some magazines, and a few cookbooks this month, so that hindered actually finishing some :)


let me be  a woman

Let Me Be a Woman by Elisabeth Elliot

Read anything by Elisabeth Elliot that you can get your hands on! The title might be off-putting, but the content covers God’s idea of womanhood, not what our culture or feminism would have us believe. #awomanwhofearstheLord #realwomanhood

women living well

Women Living Well by Courtney Joseph

Hot off the presses. This is the heart and a cohesive book format of her Courtney’s blog! She describes how the Lord desires women to walk with him, love our husbands and children, and take care of our homes. She gives tangible suggestions of how to work on each of those things, all the while, pointing straight to the heart of God. #womenCANlivewell. #FindingjoyinGod

    I haven’t read anything by Elisabeth Elliott since college! She came to speak on campus and I remember people kept calling her husband “Mr. Elliott.” :)

    I adored Let Me Be a Woman! This is a good reminder for me to dig up some Elisabeth Elliot–it’s been too long!

    I love Let Me Be a Woman! I’m currently rereading Elisabeth Elliot’s Keep a Quiet Heart. It’s wonderful and gives me just the perspective I need to face the day’s challenge with my 3 little ones.

      AH! That is on my list, so glad to hear it is good (did I have any doubt?! :) Keeping that perspective is so deeply desired and seemingly so difficult to maintain!

    Elisabeth Elliot is my most favorite Christian writer ever!! I have Let Me Be a Woman and have referred to it often! I totally agree. Read anything by her that you can find! :) I’m new to your blog, by the way, and love it! Looking forward to reading more.

    I’ve read Passion & Purity by Elizabeth Elliott and really enjoyed it, so I should check out Let Me Be a Woman – the title and cover caught my eye! Thanks for sharing. :)
