One of the things that I love about August is the opportunity to read. I've actually scheduled "reading time" into my calendar for the fall because I believe that leaders are learners and should be constantly stretching themselves with new ideas. But if you're not intentional about it, reading time will never happen.
In August, though, things slow down significantly and I'm able to catch up. I just finished Girl Meets God and Simple Church, and I may throw up some reviews of those later. For now, you can find reviews here:
