Wednesday Read & Eats

*As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.*
There’s nothing better on a rainy, cold Winter day than to enjoy a hot cup of something & a good book. In case you’re like me & enjoy the same, I figured I’d share the coziness!

In the mug today, I’m downing one of my MOST favorite fresh roasted coffee blends from ApothaCoffee, “The Deviant Witch”. This is a small-batch, traveling roastery I found at the Carolina Renaissance Festival a few years ago. You can purchase their coffee in person if you attend a fair they’re set up at OR you can purchase online & have it shipped to your front door! I’m telling you, their coffee is amay-za-zing!!

On the shelf today, I’m working through “The Search for Significance” by Robert McGee, “The Secret of Chimneys” by Agatha Christie, & “The Basic Steps of Bible Study” by Kay & David Arthur. I’ve been working through these three books a little more slowly than I’d like but now that I’m self-employed & working from home full-time, I am already finding it much easier to dig into the books I’ve been wanting to read.

  1. The Search for Significance– this version includes the workbook in the back. I was a little hesitant about it at first, but it has surprised me how much self-reflection in the light of Christ it has already stirred up in my heart & mind in just the first two chapters. If you check out previous posts over the years you’ll see it’s pretty obvious I’ve been struggling with who I am & where I find my value. Since the birth of my daughter last June I’ve also begun seeing a Christian counselor at our church, which has helped, but this book has also done wonders for my heart & mind- learning who God created me to be, how He sees me, & all that He has done for me. If you find yourself struggling in the same areas, I highly encourage you check this book out, too.
  2. The Secret of Chimneys– This one is just for fun. I LOVE a good mystery. I’ve been collecting old copies of Agatha Christie mysteries over the years & have finally started working through them. This one has been a lot of fun- stories of romance, mystery, danger, surprise, murder (of course), disguises, accents, stolen jewels, old mansions, & all the fun.
  3. The Basic Steps of Bible Study– There are ALLLLL sorts of ways to study your Bible, I’ve adapted multiple ways over the years to fit my own daily quiet times, but that doesn’t mean I can’t learn how others do it, too. This is less a book & more an instructional booklet & I’ve used it in the past to help my middle & high-school-age, church youth students learn how to dig into their own Bibles over the years. If you’re new to studying the Word, want to learn how others suggest doing it, or just need a resource to suggest to others, I recommend this great little booklet.

These are just some of the tasty morsels for the mind & body I’m consuming this wonderful Wednesday.

How about you? Comment below with what you’re digging into today.

Be blessed, friends!
