Reading Update - Accountability/Admissions of Shortcomings

Remember how I started out the year so well and then decided to set a goal for myself?  I LOVE setting goals! I'm just not so great at reaching them! 

Remember I listed out areas of life I want to focus on and came up with these five:
Special Needs (S)
Parenting (P)
Marriage (M)
Theology (T)
Daily Living - Practical (L)

It's May.  Here's how I'm doing:
S - Unlocked
T - Through His Eyes
L - Shopping for Time
L - 1.  Total Money Makeover
T - 2.  Disappointment with God
L - 3.  1000 Gifts
P - 4.  Intentional Parenting
P - 5.  Bringing the Gospel to Covenant Children
P - 6.  Don't Make Me Count to Three
L - 7.  Between Walden and the Whirlwind
T - 8.  Prodigal God
T - 9.  Almost Christian
T - 10.  Respectable Sins
S - 11.  Same Lake Different Boat
S - 12.  Our Special Needs Child
S - 13.  Expressing Faith in Jesus - Church Membership for People with Cognitive Impairments
M - 14. Love and Respect
M - 15.  The Respect Dare
M - 16.  Love that Lasts - when sinners say I Do

I could make up excuses but I won't.  I could sit in shame and guilt but I won't.  I'm just going to get off the computer and go read three - four more pages before sleep overtakes me!
What are YOU reading?

So have we talked about Almost Christian? I'm reading it now. Is 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp? If yes, I love her blog and am curious what you think when you get to that one. This list makes me remember we need to get together. Holler when you can!

PS -- loved the pics of KB on your landlord's tractor. Wonder if his heart is melting?!?! :)
