Having just moved this past Thanksgiving, a lot of things are still up in the air for me. I mean, I should probably find work! But I do have some New Year Resolutions and some titles I hope to read.
You know how you can read through Proverbs a chapter a day in a 31-day month? I want to do that and pair it with the psalms.
I want to read Luther’s Bondage of the Will, although I’m not sure I’m especially fond of the free translation I found. A lot of our adult books are staying in boxes, presuming we move in a year or so, but maybe I’ll have to check Ned’s office for a copy there. Maybe after that I can read Luther’s Great Galatians.
I also want to go ahead and refresh my Greek by going through the online videos of Dr. Voelz. I even found my textbook for it. 🙂
I also want to dabble in a little Spanish, maybe through DuoLingo. I love hearing the different languages spoken around Houston! LOVE IT! And I love that I can generally guess a language family, even if it not a specific language. However, there is no reason in the world (other than time constraints) that I can’t pick up a bit more Spanish.
Other than that, I’ve gotten a few book recommendations from Facebook including the following (feel free to comment with additional suggestions):
- Liturgy of the Ordinary
- All Creatures Great & Small
- Battle for the American Mind: Uprooting a Century of Miseducation By Peter Hesgeth with David Goodwin
- The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray
- Once Upon a Wardrobe by Patti Callahan
- The Atonement Child by Francine Rivers
- The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen
- The Edge of Belonging by Amanda Cox
- World War Z by Max Brooks
- Martha Washington, An American Life by Patricia Brady
Nice and eclectic!
I also, perhaps regrettably, hope to up my game in every way. I want to prepare better food, take better care of myself/ my family/ my home, improve my vocabulary/ small talk/ discussion skills, etc, grow professional, spiritually, mentally, etc. That’s the wobbliest of my resolutions, of course. 😀
Do I also hope to keep up with this website, LutheranHomeschool.com, and writing? Sure! Though I’m getting overwhelmed at times, as you can well imagine.
Still, happy New Year!
