I‘m going to be taking a break from regular blogging for the remainder of 2018. There are a couple of really good reasons for this:
First, our family of five will be moving house in late October. While we hope that this will be a good thing for us in the long term, it does mean that while we’re busy searching for our next property our lives are slowly being packed into boxes, and we get to experience all the fun that goes with that.
Second, I’ve decided to take on a major learning project for myself (the details aren’t important), and I so wanted to free up other self-imposed deadlines in order to make space to read, write, and focus on this specific thing. I hope it’s going to be really valuable for myself personally, for my family discipleship, and for my ministry to the church, but it requires carving out a chunk of time, so something’s gotta give.
Third, I’ve reached my reading goal for the year early (52 books completed). So, while I still have a number of books from publishers that are waiting to be reviewed, I’ll be limiting myself to posting those reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, and I’m going to slow right down on writing/reviewing
What does that mean for the blog? It means there’s not going to be any new content until Jan 2019, although I may drop in a post about Christmas—because that’s a fairly important event, y’know?—and perhaps a quick post on My Top Books for 2018 if other priorities permit.
There’s plenty to be done over the next 3 months, and our family appreciates your prayers.
See you in the new year!
