Conversations with God

For the past 3 months I have been attempting to read Conversations with God. I would read about 4 or 5 pages, then wouldn't pick it up again for 3 weeks, read 4 or 5 pages, pick it up again 3 weeks later and so on and so on. Needless to say, I have not gotten very far in the book. So, I am re-commiting myself to the book....I WILL READ 10 PAGES EVERYDAY!

Every week, I will share with you what i've learned/read that week. Kind of like a weekly book report, if you will. This will no only hold me accountable for reading my 10 pages a day but maybe even you'll even get something out of it.

I do not consider myself a religious person. I have nothing against religion. I grew up Catholic and still love a good traditional mass, but it's not the path I choose for myself. (Sorry Mom, I know you are reading this and probably wincing. I LOVE YOU) I will say that I am a Spiritual person, and I do believe in God. From what i've read thus far, the book is right in-line with how I view God and my world.
