From the Library of CS Lewis

I recently, well, okay, like months ago, received a copy of From the Library of CS Lewis: Selections from Writers Who Influenced His Spiritual Journey.  I grabbed it because I wanted to read something a little more intellectual than what I typically gravitate toward, and Andrew is a huge CS Lewis fan, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong.

Well, while it is an excellent compilation of some really well-known, and not so well-known, authors and thinkers, it just wasn’t for me.  I am not super intellectual who enjoys reading about philosophy and other stuff of that nature.  I really wish that I had enjoyed this book, because I know it took a lot of work to put it together, and it will remain on my bookshelf as a reference.

If you like reading books along the lines of John Bunyan and Tozer, then you would probably really enjoy this anthology, if not… well… borrow it from the library if you ever need some short snippets to think on.  You can check it out for yourself at

I received this book for free as part of the Blogging for Books Program through WaterBrook Multnomah.  All opinions are 100% mine.  Don’t forget to rate my review on their website!

I’m skipping ahead quite a bit, but these are some pictures that I didn’t have to go back and relabel, so it’s easier just to post these first!

Apparently this is one of the many pictures that got lost somewhere, but I found it now!

Day 160: My sweet friend, Jihan, and I walked/ran around a nearby lake and attempted their workout circuit. Here she is doing the parallel bars. And she did a great job!

And happy 21st birthday to my baby sister Kelly!  I am so proud of the person you are becoming!!!
