The ever changing list of what I’m currently engrossed in reading…….
Growing in Christ by J.I. Packer. This is an old book, also published under the title: I Want to Be a Christian. Packer gives bite-sized explanations of the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments. The back cover sums it up perfectly, “…we mature spiritually by carefully learning and thoughtfully living the essentials of the faith that are too often taken for granted or overlooked in our daily walk …. Dr. Packer reminds us that Christianity is not instinctive. Ours is a faith that must be learned, and we must never stop striving to mature.”
Answers for Difficult Days – Justice by Ben Quine. This is part of a series addressing what the Bible says about current cultural concerns. It is timely. It is thought provoking. It is challenging to realize that my beliefs about such things may have no basis in Biblical truth! Now I know better.
Failure to Implement by Howard Partridge. Listen to this as an audio book. It’s like having a conversation with the author, as he is the narrator. Despite noble intentions, our failure to implement means nothing worthwhile is likely to be accomplished. Get ready to change with specific steps to take to make it happen.

My teens read it on their own, but I consider it a valuable part of their homeschool curriculum.
Imprimis publication from Hillsdale College found at www.hillsdale.edu. This is another source for spot-on commentary on current affairs. It’s been a staple in our house for about 29 years. It’s also been an integral part of our homeschool’s ongoing civics instruction.
