For November, we continue to read the book by Gretchen Ruben, Happier at Home. For November we read the chapter, November: Parenthood Pay Attention. Join our group in person or contribute via the website! I look forward to hearing your answers to the following questions, mainly from Rubin’s reading group guide:
- Rubin writes, “Just because something is fun for someone else doesn’t make it fun for me–and vice versa” and “I can choose what I do, but I can’t choose what I like to do.” Do you agree? Or do you think you can teach yourself to enjoy something that initially you don’t find fun? What do you find fun?
- Do you have shrines in your home? If you were going to make one, what would you include?
- (From a book group member) If you like, please share your parenting challenges.
- Rubin quotes a line from Saint Thérèse: “It isn’t enough to love; we must prove it.” Rubin shares her time and attention to prove her love. How about you?
