for the love of reading. | THE KLACKNERS


for the love of reading.

i love to read.
i was that kid with her nose always in a book.
reading was a way to escape to another world and have new adventures.
and it still is.

as i got older and busier, the pile of unread books grew.
but i missed it.
i knew if i was ever going to read everything i wanted to,
i'd have to make time for it.
so i've set new goals for myself…
reading a book every couple of weeks.
and. i. love. it.

i just finished [finding God in the land of narnia]
y'all. it is impossible to explain how much i love narnia.
i've read the books so many times.
in this book, the writers kurt bruner & jim ware,
explore the land of narnia and reveal the [kingdom story] woven throughout. 

as human beings, we all understand the deep rooted desire for something more.
jack lewis, understood that and his stories fuel that longing.
the desire of another world. the desire for something that will satisfy.
the narnian character that portrays this desire the most is [reepicheep].
reepicheep lives a desire driven life. his whole existence is a quest.
a quest to find aslan's country.
he never looked back. 
"his sights were set on a goal that lay beyond the boundaries of this world."
he's a character i can relate to.
that's where i want my heart and my desires to be.

in may of 1955, a mother wrote to jack lewis telling him 
of her son's concern that, after reading narnia,
he loved aslan more than he loved Jesus.
this was jack's response.

i. just. love. that.
