The Need To Read

Charles Spurgeon once said “He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read”.  I’ll let him sound like the bad guy here but I’m on his side when it comes to this topic.  Join us in this episode as we talk about the benefits of a good book, or two…. or 1,000….

    My mom instilled in me a love for reading. I read several books at once. Not at the same moment obviously.

    I’m grateful my boys all love reading too. Some things we did with our boys: Started reading to them as babies. As soon as they stopped napping as kids, we always had quiet reading time every afternoon for an hour. Before they could even read. In the beginning they would look at pictures. Allow them to listen to audio books at night after lights out and we also listened to them on road trips . Just some ideas for those with young kids. I think it started a habit of setting time aside to read.

    I put this together for the Theology Gals group, links to free Christian books. There’s so many good ones available for free.

    Also, Librivox has a ton of free audio books, including Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, John Owen etc. Also lots of Classic fiction. It’s a great option for those with a long commute or for road trips.

    Btw, I have a son whose favorite color is purple too.
