Books I’m Reading

At the beginning of the year I made a goal of reading at least one book a month. I used to read books all the time, but as more and more kiddos came along, my time got limited and I just don’t have a lot of brain space or time to read. But I know that books are so valuable, and I’m determined to try!

I thought it might be fun to occasionally talk about the books I’m reading. Here are some of the books I’ve read since the beginning of the year…

Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World
by Gary Vanerchuck

book

This was a hands-on breakdown of how to best utilize the most popular social media platform like Instagram and Facebook. It is a few years old and social media changes so fast, but I still got some valuable info for how to use social media in my business.

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
by Elizabeth Gilbert

book

This book helped me see ideas and creativity in a different way than I had before. It is inspiring and made me want to stop making excuses and just CREATE even if things aren’t perfect.

Meaningful: The Story of Ideas That Fly
by Bernadette Jiwa

book

This book helped me think about how to market my business as it fits into my customer’s story and their needs. Her writing is engaging and easy to follow. Highly recommend.

Most of the books I’m interested in right now are related to small business and creativity. I would like to get into a good fiction book to round out my current reading list. Any suggestions??

  1. The best book I have read lately is “All the light we cannot see” by Anthony Doerr
    I couldn’t put it down! It’s about a blind girl and a German boy and is so moving and inspiring.

  2. Hello Aimee,

    My wife and I love your content! There is so much in what you do and share which expresses the good, true, and beautiful in life! Please continue to keep up the good work. You have inspired us in more ways than you know.

    I was wondering if you would be willing to write a guest post for a new blog I am developing? The focus is on the good, true and beautiful in creation and the world around us and I would feel privileged if you could share about an element or idea that helps inspire you, brings joy to your life, and makes life worth living. It doesn’t have to be long, but something that has meant a lot to you. If you are interested or have more questions you can respond to me at this email address or at pilgrim@worthliving.org

    Thank you so much and may God continue to bless you in your work!

    Michael and Sheila

  3. I also have little time to read, but I really enjoy it when I squeeze it in. I’ve got a whole stack of non-fiction books in my “queue”! Still, sometimes I just love a good novel. I stumbled upon a new-to-me author and genre of fiction lately. The author is Tricia Goyer (Christian author) and she writes stories about the Amish. I thought maybe you’d enjoy it since I know you’ve mentioned in the past that you actually have a lot of Amish living near you. I happened to see a promotion for her book “The Memory Jar” in my Twitter feed and bought the Kindle edition on a whim. It was just what God had for me at the time, and He actually used the fictional story to speak to me (I love how He does things like that!). So that’s my suggestion for fiction. I’ll have to check out some of the non-fiction books you recommended as well. Ad them to my pile! 🙂
