What I’m Reading

I enjoy reading a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction. Here’s what I’ve been reading lately — I would love to hear what you are reading and enjoying so let me know.

Books read in 2016

I try to make a list each year of books I read. Of the books below I think I would recommend just about all of them. I think the stand out favorite was The Glass Castle for pure enjoyment. Truman was very well written and informative. Messy Grace should be read by every ?Christian who wants to gain a better perspective on the church’s relationship with the LGBTQ community and our broader culture.
