Books...Edited*** was somewhat evil of Kim to tag me in this seeing as she knows I have only read 5 books in my whole life. She is trying to expose my humiliation to the whole internet community.

1. One book that changed your life? In the Name of Jesus by Henri M. Nouwen. I read this book at a sm. group training retreat in High School and it turned the way I looked at Leadership upside down. The whole servant leadership thing seems more obvious to me now but at the time it changed how I looked at everything. Henri Nouwen remains my favorite author.

2. One book that you have read more than once? Malachy's baby book that Lauren got me. Baby grows up with Peter rabbit. I probably look at it every other week! =)

3. One book you would want on a desert island? The last Harry Potter book. I gotta know what happens!

4. One book that made you laugh? Boy by Roald Dahl. It's his auto-biography of his childhood. It's interesting and funny. I also enjoyed Flying Solo which follows him through his young adult years.

5. One book that made you cry? Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix. I don't want to spoil it for anyone... so.... all I will say is someone dies and it was really sad!

6. One book you wish had never been written? Can't think of one. I have not read enough I suppose. And if I didn't like it... I stopped reading it.

7.One book you are currently reading? I'm suppose to be reading a Henri Nouwen Book about Solitude with Sandy but we both keep forgetting, getting busy, or losing it! =)

8. One book you have been meaning to read? Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller and Wild at Heart by John Eldredge.

Now tag five people: most people I know pretty much have been tagged! Hmmmm...Sara, Steve, Sandy, Alan, and Jami...I think none of you all have been tagged yet.

OK and I tag Crystal! OMG I can't believe I didn't know you had not been tagged!

This is probably the saddest day of my life no one has tagged me yet. Not Scott, not Kim, not Sarah, not Sadie, and now not Steph (and I'm suppose to be your favorite?). *sigh* Oh well.

Hey I'm not coming over today to get my thing because I was doing yard work and I got really depressed because EVERY night the racoons break into our garbage and I HATE cleaning up wet dirty diapers, maggots, rolly polly stinking gross bugs, and dog poop. Now I am sweaty and gross and just annoyed with messiness. AND I have to go back out and do some more. I just came in to lay down baby and take a 5 min break.

Off I go, pray I don't die from grossoutness!!

Sorry for the typos I'm too tired to fix them.

Crystal said...

Maybe I'll come get it tonight and hang out with you if you're not busy thinking about all you other more favorite friends. =D

Hey I was thinking since Kim is in the infatuation stage of dating and needs her Ross time (as we all did when we started dating our supermen so it's all cool!) maybe we can have a bible study where it doesn't require Kim to put too much effort into it and she can come as she pleases. And we can get another book say and Henry N. book (my favorite Linda likes him a lot too!). So what do you and Kim think? Maybe like when Kim is there we can do the Beth Moore one and when she's not we can do Henry N.? Just an idea.

Maybe this should have been an e-mail. Oh well lazy is my friend today.

Feel free to delet that last comment if you want. =o)

Crystal said...

TOO LATE! It's doesn't count cuz that was a pity tag. =) I'm home now but I don't know about coming over yet. I'm pretty tired from yard work (I weed whacked today too) and from Target with Mom.

I'll call you soon.

Sara said...

Oh, boy... you had to tag me didn't you??? I'll try my hardest... not sure though. Hmmm...


When can we get together?? When can we do lunch?? Or dinner? I can come by you guys. I don't mind. Unless you want to come out here... that's cool too!!! Just let me know.. CRYSTAL and KIM... SCOTT and MARK... you too... I want all ya'll to come too, or we can see you when we/I come there... either way...

I'm rambling... and using dots... too... much... it's... annoying... me... and... I'm... going... to... stop... right... now...
