I’m listening to: I don’t listen to audio books, usually. When I do, it’s always a book I have read before. I have to see the words myself to make complete sense of a text the first time. So, instead of audiobooks, I will share my iPod shuffled playlist for the week 🙂 ! I have been listening to Spotify a bit this week and have had the following running through my playlist:
Bruce Springsteen–my go to to pump up, slow down, or just be in the moment.
Books finished this week:
I Am Not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells
Abandoned book: None this week
Scripture lesson: We all know there is only one winner in a race. However, we all should approach the preparation and the race itself as if we were the winner. Today’s guiding verse:

I’m praying for: Everyone
