I am not an avid reader. At least I don’t consider myself to be. What I do know is that there is a lot I don’t know and I am eager to learn. Of all the things I want to learn right now, fathering is at the top. (I’ve got 57 kids you know 😉 and they all require something different. So at the top of my list and one that I have just finished reading is Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters.

I want to seek to know more of how to handle our financial future, so you’ll see some books about finances here. This is one of my strongest areas and I want to seek to improve on it.

One of the areas I am weakest is in managing, so I will be doing some reading about how to become a better manager.

Creativity is my game when it comes to church. This may be a controversial statement but I feel there is as much need for creativity as Theology in church. I’ll write about this statement in more detail at some point in the future, so be on the lookout for that.

There is as much need for creativity as Theology in church.

So without further delay, here are the beginnings of my reading list for 2019 with the same goal of 20 books. Some of the books I’ll be tackling this year are:
