"Grace-Based Parenting" by Tim Kimmel. Heard him on Family Life Today and loved his segment. The comment I remember most was not to "claim a personal preference is a Biblical issue, for example, dying hair an unnatural color, or dressing a certain style." Glad to hear a Christian parent fess up to that and stand up against it. Can't wait to read this one.
Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss Book One of the Kingkiller Chronicles. I love the character Kvothe, his intelligent, stubborn craftiness and knack for finding his way into the fire under the frying pan. Audiobook is narrated by Nick Podehl and very well done. Staff Pick: Cheryl, Kimberly
