2019 Reading List

2019 Reading List.png

Here are the books I’ve read or listened to so far this year (2019), along with my rating and brief review of each.

Rating scale is 1 to 5, with 5 being the best.

Decision Making and the Will of God (3.5) - Includes good guidance on decision making from a faith-based perspective, dispelling the belief that there’s a “right” decision for everything by God’s standards.  The book is long and can be repetitive at times so I found myself skipping over some parts and consuming what was of interest to me.

Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work (5) - This book spoke right to my heart.  It explores how God calls us to express meaning and purpose through our work and careers and includes a lot of surprising and practical advice that doesn’t fit the typical Christian stereotypes.  I actually found a lot of practical application outside of career about how I practice my faith in more general terms.

Atomic Habits (5) - I listened to this one on Audible and got so much out of it.  Habit research is a hot topic right now and this book is full of practical advice.  While it includes some of the science behind habit change, it’s much more focused on the practical application of starting good habits and breaking bad ones.  After listening to just one chapter, you’ll be able to walk away and implement something in your own life.  There are also a lot of great online resources that go with the book that are especially helpful if you listen to it.
