My 2015 Goals Resource List

When I was devising my goals for 2015, I drew up a list of books and courses that I wanted to read/ do to assist me in growing. Based on my reading history, I’m loathed to call it my definitive reading list, but if I even manage a third of the books, I’ll be happy!

The list of resources is diverse from e-books, to kindle, paper ( ie books and magazines), blogs and audio.
I am also planning on doing a few courses this year on gardening and nutrition, which I’ve also included, as all of these should help me grow as a person this year.

Spiritual Reading 2015

Faith Resources:
: Cover to Cover, Through the Bible as it happened– Selwyn Hughes and Trevor J. Partridge
: Sons of Encouragement- Francine Rivers. (ok so it’s fiction, but the stories are based on Biblical fact and are aimed at encouraging us in growth)
: Paul for Everyone- Tom Wright
: Is Jesus enough?- Angus Buchan
: Prayer- Philip Yancey

Extra Resources for Faith
(These are books I would like to read but they aren’t high on the priority list.)
: Victory over the Darkness- Neil T. Anderson
: The Prayer of Jabez- Bruce Wilkinson
: Praying Circles around Your Children- Mark Batterson
: The Sounds of God- Michael Mitton

Health Resources :
: Nutrition course- I really like the look of this one, as it is more about living a healthy lifestyle than purely nutrition.
: Paleo Lifestyle websites- My favourite two websites are Mark’s Daily Apple and Paleo Mom
: Blue Zones- Dan Buettner
: Cooking courses/ recipes available- Notably Gordon Ramsey (I’m enjoying his two recent cooking shows- Ultimate Cookery Course and Ultimate Home Cooking) , Delia Smith, Jamie Oliver- particularly his 30 Minute meals cookbook, Your Lighter Side website as well as Paleo Mom’s recipes.
: A woman’s Guide to Running Magbook, published by Health and Fitness Magazine

Relationship Books

Mind Books:
: Think Outside the Classroom book- Kelly Crawford
: The Railway Man– Eric Lomax
: Long Walk to Freedom- Nelson Mandela
: Something about becoming more organised, running a home better or such like. I haven’t decided what yet. I will share it when I know what it is.

Mind Stimulating books 2015

Japan Further Study/ Resources:
: Research more about Japanese history
: Research more about geography of Japan.
:Fukushima– Mark Willacy

Hobbies Resources:

: Gardening course- I found an awesome course last year by the Royal Horticultural Society, but the link I saved is no longer valid.
I am planning to do this one instead.
: Jane’s Delicious Garden Jane Griffiths

So 19 books listed,+extras. It’s going to be a busy old year if I manage it, and that’s not including the fiction.
Hmmm I think some holidays to the beach, on my own, are in order!

About Cheryl

I am a child of God, a wife and a mother of 4 children. Some days are good. Some days are frustrating. Some days are just plain insane. In between the mayhem, I loved to go for walks with our mutt, potter in the garden and enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. That all changed in August 2012 when we waved goodbye to our mutt and garden, our eldest at Uni in Gloucester and moved to Tokyo for 4 months. And yes- we are still here...
