My life isn't just about babies (I promise)

My whole life I have been a huge reader---up until college (ironic?) when the only stuff I "read" was from textbooks. Now I can finally read just for reading's sake. I guess I could have done some of that in college too, but let's be honest here...

I strongly recommend this book by C.S. Lewis. Mark and his whole family are C.S. Lewis fanatics. They all get together and talk about this or that and I'd usually sit there in wonderment and curiosity at the insight this author has in each of his books. Well for Christmas this year, Ryan, Mark's younger brother, gave each of us one of his favorite books. He gave me The Great Divorce. I was so excited because now I could finally see what all this talk was about for myself. I finally got around to reading it and I loved it especially because of how quick it was (without wounding or short-cutting the depth of its message). It's so similar to what I envision Spirit Paradise and Hell, or Spirit Prison to be. You could read it in a couple of days (or a day, if you have a few hours) and my goodness you'll be surprised at the perspective he has.

  1. I'm loving all these updates! Also, The Great Divorce is one of my favorites for all those same reasons.
