All wrapped and decorated.
All cleaned and organised.
So I’m reading.
I’ve just finished reading the kids’ edition of Ben Carson’s biography, “Gifted Hands”. Then I read the original version as well. I loved them both.
His mother made him read two books a week and do book reports on them. That is a wise and wonderful woman.
Oh, if you didn’t know (I didn’t until I read these books), Dr Ben Carson is an inspiring and amazing neurosurgeon. His life can teach us about the undervalued virtue of grit. I’ll definitely be reading these books to my boys.
But first I shared the movie with them. I read about the movie in the book and literally dashed out the same day to find a copy at Koorong. It was as good as I expected.
Now I have to decide which Carson book to read next.
I have “America the Beautiful” which I borrowed from the library.
Yes I know I’m not American and I don’t even live there (but I’ve visited if that counts), but I’m betting this man has words of wisdom to share that can apply to even those outside of the states.
And I also have “Think Big”, which I purchased in hard copy and then also as an ebook (when I found out it was only $0.81 at present!)
In “Think Big”, Dr Carson explains his personal formula for success using an ascrostic
T – talents/time
H – hope/honesty
I – insight
N – nice
K – knowledge
B – books
I – in-depth learning
G – God
Sounds like a good read doesn’t it.
