I posted on my Facebook page yesterday that 2012 would be the year for reading, running, and blogging. Well, here is my first blog of 2012. Whoop!

Reading: I love to read! My Kindle is awesome. Right now I am reading Mockingjay, the last book in The Hunger Games trilogy. Really great series. My husband and I are reading through and studying the Bible together over the next year. Fabulous way to connect with all the activity in our house!

Running: I love to run! I am very very slow, but it is a form of worship for me. I turn on the praise music, and we talk. I mean really talk. He tells me some out there stuff that I do not get any other time. My first race on tap is the St. Paddy’s 5K on March 17. Join me, won’t you?

Blogging: I love to blog! Hopefully the things I blog about are useful or encouraging to others. I like to blog about my faith and my family mostly. My goal is one blog a week. Of course, if you have been reading my blog already, you know my husband is a fantastic blogger!

Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. Revelation 2:5 ESV

Three questions for you:

1. What are your favorite books?

2. If you run, what are some of your running resources or favorite races?

3. What are some of your favorite blogs?

    1. Outside of, obviously, the Bible; The Practice of the Prescence of God. Read it at least once a year.

    2. My running resources: coyotes yapping behind me. I am a sprinter 🙂

    3. Yours is the only one I read and I love reading the way you and Bill share your hearts.

      Cool. I will check all those out! I highly recommend the Rock n Roll series if you are looking for another 1/2. Also, the Mississippi Blues Marathon and 1/2 Marathon was yesterday here. They put on a good race.

    Lori, if you haven’t already, you need to read SARAH’S KEY by Tatiana de Rosnay. Wonderful book.
