I’m a big reader. I read, on average, two or three books a week. Reading is a driving force in my life… I can’t NOT read. But I’ve realized that I’ve been reading novels, which are entertaining and escapist but not particularly helpful. 
My new project is to read one self-help/devotional book a month and to make regular weekly posts about what I learn. I picked The Power of a Praying Wife, by Stormie Omartian to read during the month of August. This book is supposed to help me learn to pray more efficiently for my husband, in these particular areas:
  • his spiritual walk
  • his emotions
  • his roles as father, leader and decision maker
  • his security in work and finances
  • his health and physical protection
  • his faith and his future
The book is broken down into 30 chapters, each ending with scripture and a specific prayer relating to the chapter’s subject matter. One chapter a day is certainly doable! 
I look forward to learning and hope that God will continue to change and form my heart into what He wants it to be! If by chance there is a reader that would like to walk through this book with me, let me know and we can do it together!
