I don't know about you but I love reading. When I get hold of a good book I'm afraid everything else goes out of the window - I can't put it down! I especially like reading Christian books and whenever I go away on a conference I always come back laden with new books. It was this love of reading that got me thinking about starting a book club for women in the church. Not just a book club to discuss a book on an intellectual level but a place where we could come together to challenge, encourage and pray for one another about how we can put the lessons we've learnt into practice in our lives.
So far we have read Forgiveness by Julia Marsden and Dangerously Alive by Simon Guillebaud. We are currently reading Compared to her by Sophie de Witt and our first book after Christmas will be Rachel's Tears, a book about the Columbine School shootings.
I've been amazed at how many people have wanted to be involved. We meet once a half term and will hopefully cover a wide range of different types of books through the year. I hope as you read some of the reviews of the books we've read it will encourage you to pick up a book !
