Relationships: A Mess Worth Making

I just wanted to put a quick recommendation out for this book by Paul Tripp and Tim Lane called Relationships: A Mess Worth Making. I have only read about half of it, but so far it has been great. I highly, HIGHLY recommend it. It addresses relationships in general (not just romantic relationships) and it's just really, really encouraging (and convicting!). If you are looking for a worthwhile book to read this summer, this is a good choice. The chapters aren't that long and it's very easy to read. Everything is simply put and not all theological and scholarly sounding to the point you spend more time trying to figure out what they are saying than actually reading. I am looking forward to finishing it. My brother recently finished the whole book and said it's totally worth the read.

This is where I would normally ask for book recommendations, but I already have a short list of books I want to read this summer (and probably won't end up reading more than 2...I'm not the most diligent reader.) However, here are the books I want to read, let me know if you know if you've read any and what you thought of them:

- Relationships: A Mess Worth Making
- Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations
-
Letters on Practical Subjects to a Daughter
- So Much More (this is a long book and probably will not get finished this summer)

I haven't read any of these, but I've heard wonderful things about most of them (except So Much More, which I'm not familiar with). Looking forward to hearing about what you're learning.

I'm wading my way through Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest (Ed Welch). It's been excellent so far but it's so much to think about!

Do Hards Things was excellent!

I'm planning on reading Do Hard Things and Relationships: A Mess Worth Making.

Do you own Do Hard things? If so, can I borrow it?
