The Giver

I reread The Giver a few weekends ago. I think I read it the first time in middle school and it left a lasting impression. Even though it made quite an impact back then, I still couldn't remember the whole story so I decided to dive into it again. It is a really quick read, but I found that it left me in a bubble of thoughts through the entire weekend. I was left thinking about free will, love, pain...things I believe we should be considering as followers of Jesus. I'm so glad I read it again and I think I may even buy a used copy to have around. Highly recommended!

P.S. We had a great Valentine's day as a family. Very low-key and simple. Andi had us over to decorate cookies...definitely a a good time. She has a great post and pictures here.

I've only read her book Number the Stars. I'll have to keep an eye out for this one.
