Reading Can Change Your Life

By Joyce Jackson

Why read?  When we read, not only are we improving memory and empathy, but research has shown that it makes us feel better and more positive too. Science has shown that reading has some amazing health benefits, including helping with depression, cutting stress, and reducing the chances of developing Alzheimer's later in life.

Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, and you never know when it might come in handy. The more knowledge you have, the better-equipped you are to tackle any challenge you’ll ever face.

With this in mind, our reading recommendations for this quarter are:

Sick of Me by Whitney Capps
Are you ready to truly transforming your life?  Are you ready to be honest about all
 your junk but are also ready to move forward then this is read for you.

Revealed by Stephen Kendrick, Alex Kendrick & Tony Schmidt
Young men usually ask the question, “Who Am I”?  This book will answer that question.  If you have relationship with young men and want to be able to mentor them, then this book is for you also.

Radiant by Priscilla Shirer
This book is directed to teen girls and young women.  The focus is on identity, every facet of their identity.  If you have relationship with young women or teens and want to be able to mentor them, then this book is for you.

Lastly, I also encourage you to set a goal and read your Bible.  How about reading through the Psalms or Proverbs this quarter?
