As an avid reader, the thought of consistently integrating books into A Peacemaker’s Life brings me excitement and joy. I truly believe that learning about people’s stories and journeys through their written words is a meaningful way to gain insight and understanding.
Toward the end of every month, I plan to write a book reflection post on the following books. Though each is unique, all of them have threads of navigating different worlds with the purpose of deepening understanding and love. For now, I invite you to read along with me, leave a comment or reach out to let me know what you think. In the future, the conversation may take a more interactive approach.
January: Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña. Since it is already late in the month, I have chosen a short children’s book. (You can see and hear it read aloud here as part of Dolly’s Imagination Library series.)
February: It’s About Damn Time, How to Turn Being Underestimated into Your Greatest Advantage by Arlan Hamilton
March: Abuelita Faith, What Women on the Margins Teach Us about Wisdom, Persistence, and Strength by Kat Armas
April: See No Stranger, A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love by Valarie Kaur
May: The Bold World, A Memoir of Family and Transformation by Jodie Patterson
June: The Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Ávila
