Now, I've been reading The Vaccine Book by Dr. Sears. This book was loaned to me by a dear, sweet, new friend of mine, Scarlet, and it is very informational. You wouldn't believe me if I told you what vaccines contain. Or maybe you would, but you would be appalled. However, the book doesn't lean one direction or the other, it is just very informative. I find information to be very useful in these situations of raising a child. I do wish I'd read it, say before Brielle was born; however, I'm not sure how ready for a fight I would've been, considering our Pediatrician (who seems to be the most open-minded one I've met at his office) takes a pretty firm stance on vaccines and their schedules. It is STILL important that I do now know what vaccines, why, what they are made of and how often they are administered, and how they work.
While I was working my way through that book, I picked up a fiction book at the library a few weeks ago. I could NOT put it down. Maybe it was because I'd been on a fiction hiatus, or perhaps it was just that good! Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen was a historical fiction treat!
Next, I am involved in a twice-a-month Bible Study covering the book entitled For Women Only by Shaunti Feldham. This is a part of the MOPS organization that Brielle and I are attending this school year. It is really very challenging. But as is marriage! I am learning and growing through it, tough as it may be, and I'm anticipating good things to come of it.
