What are We Reading? October 2018 Edition

Being an author, I naturally love reading. Fortunately, my husband and kiddos are avid readers as well. Here is what we are into this month:

On Mama’s nightstand is The Holy Spirit by Sinclair B. Ferguson. I have been frustrated by misrepresentations of the Holy Spirit in our church and wanted to learn more about the Holy Spirit according to scripture. For this reason, my husband recommended this excellent book to me. Very thorough and solidly Reformed.


My kiddos are obsessed with Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell. It perfectly correlates with their curiosity about animals and our countless zoo visits this year–plus, it has liftable flaps on every page. What’s not to love?


My husband, the late night theologian, is knee deep in the Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin. He had been meaning to read this classic for a while now and finally got enough time to amble through over 900 pages of translated Calvin. I’ll let you know what he thinks about it once he makes it closer to the back cover than the front.
