the more than i dig into our writing, the more that i'm craving to read really good books. i hope to share some of them on here, and for now, all of my reading time is consumed by this guy:
in particular, his life captured by eric metaxas, who we recently had the pleasure of listening to at an event.
if you're not familiar with bonhoeffer, it is so worth the read. he was a German Christian during the time of Hitler's reign and was eventually assassinated for his involvement in a plot to kill Hitler.
this is 600+ pages well spent. i've been convicted and motivated. not only did Hitler hate Jews, but he also hated anyone who was disabled. that's close to home.
i want this to be said of us as well as it was of bonhoeffer: "whatever he had and whatever he was, he made that accessible to others."
it's scary to write our book and to proclaim God's worth in marriage and in disabilities, especially in this culture. but as this author said while we watched him at the podium, he came to a realization on his writing journey that this is God's book.
our book is God's book too.
