With spring finally on our doorstep and nicer temperatures outside, I haven’t taken the time to read a lot in the month of May, but the few books I have gotten in have been worth a mention. Here are my May reads.

10 Minutes In The Word: John

I really want to develop a daily habit of devotions and prayer, but honestly it can be difficult to remember or squeeze into a busy day. 10 Minutes In The Word: John is a great little devotional that goes through the truths in the book of John in 10 minutes increments. There is a daily Bible reading, devotional and then questions at the end to meditate on the day’s lesson. This book is a nice size to toss in your bag, and it even has a ribbon attached to keep your place. This would make a great gift to someone who needs a little encouragement, or a devotion to go through yourself. The book of John is “both simple and profound” and there are so many lessons to be learned from that book.

The Next Right Thing by Emily P. Freeman

I have heard a lot of buzz about this book, so I was curious to get my hands on it. I am one of the most indecisive people on the planet, so this topic hits close to home for me! The Next Right Thing is a guide to clearing all of the mental clutter that can make decision making and priorities murky, and lays out exactly how to overhaul our decision making process. 

I love Freeman’s simple and minimalistic approach to almost every area of life, including decision making. She breaks the process down so we can really investigate what our hangup is, and examine why we are making certain decisions. This was a pretty easy and enjoyable read, so I definitely recommend adding it to your TBR stack!

Restoration House by Kennesha Buycks

I had never heard of this author, but this book was so pretty I had to snag it. Restoration House is a large, almost coffee table style book. Byucks believes that whether you live in your dream home or a dump, you can and should embrace your home for what it is, and turn it into a place where you feel restored.

I find it refreshing to see a woman of color in this home decor space! I also love her rustic, minimal style. The pictures in this book are stunning and inspiring. I can’t wait to go through this book again and apply her principles to my own home, be it ever so humble.

Son those are my May reads! What books have you been into lately?
