I love being around inspiring people.
And that's basically what reading biographies is! I was a history major in college (So fun! But not much you can do with a bachelor's degree...) and it has been vital to understanding current events, cause and effect, as well as finding and predicting patterns in human behavior.
Here are some of my all-time favorite biographies. These people now feel like dear friends and I have learned SO MUCH from them! I find myself wanting to emulate them, but also looking at my own motivations, my own weaknesses, and looking at a bigger picture of the human story.
These books are best suited for older teens and adults, as some adult themes may be present. There is no white washing in these books, neither is there censorship. They are simply factual- and we all have our weaknesses. But these books are all amazing!
I am astounded at the goodness and the strength that exists in people. I am taken aback by some of their mistakes. But in the end, it gives me great courage. It makes me think, that even with my mistakes and weaknesses that maybe, just maybe, I can make a contribution too. And so can you.
What favorite biographies do you love? Let me know in the comments!
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
