This year I decided I wasn’t going to set New Year’s Resolutions. I was going to continue to make changes in my life to make me healthier physically and I did make it a point to sit down and set measurable goals that had a deadline (that didn’t included December 31st, 2016.
I also decided that my changes should not merely be physical changes but emotional, spiritual and intellectual changes.
I want to become healthier, but I also want to grow closer to God, be happier (which is a matter of attitude, not circumstances), and continue to learn.
Thus I decided to take on a Reading Challenge this year. The ultimate goal is one books a month. It’s January 9th and I’ve all ready finished the 2nd book on my list.
So here is the Challenge
A BOOK PUBLISHED THIS YEAR
Fall of Poppies: Love and the Great War

The DaVinci Code
