Marriage, Misfits, and Mission Completed (June Reads 2018)
What do you do on a morning when the electricity is off. For me, it as a great excuse to sit with some iced coffee and read before we head to the airport to go see our son graduate from boarding school. But first, I thought I would write about some of the books I read/listened to this month.
1. Marriage: A Lifelong Love by Gary Thomas
2. Misfits: Blessed are the Misfits: Great News for Believers Who are Introverts, Spiritual Strugglers, or Just Feel Like Something is Missing by Brant Hansen
Here are two of my favorite quotes so far.
“Emotions are very human. But faithfulness, in spite of emotion, and in the absence of emotion, is beautiful.. “
“We’ve been taught in many ways that struggling is a bad thing, that “success” is all that matters. But it’s through struggling that we learn, that we get stronger, and that we change. I’m less concerned for friends who are struggling than friends who aren’t.”
