by Charles Duhigg

“Peter and I are both fascinated by The Power of Habit–a book with practical advice as well as thought-provoking data and stories about individuals and companies and how habits can change. We are also both looking fowrard to reading James K.A. Smith’s The Spiritual Power of Habit. Here’s a video link about that book, and here’s a great article by David Brooks that refers to it.”

This book includes a devotional reflection for each day of Advent, surrounded by beautiful artwork and information about the various church feast days throughout this time of year. Amy Julia and I have been using it as a guide through this season for years.

A great father-son read aloud, though I would suggest a minimum age of seven in light of serious content.

(made famous by the movie version of one of its books – Master and Commander) is a fun and serious historical fiction that also offers great reflections on leadership.
