Great Books!

I've been doing quite a bit of reading lately (at the expense of my household chores!) and thought I would share some of my favorites.....
-Shepherding a Child's Heart by Ted Tripp- I would suggest this book to anyone who is a parent... Definitely eye-opening for me. Drew is reading it now as we start to discuss how we plan to discipline Evan.

-The Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson- This book really opened my eyes to the awesome responsibility that I have as a mother in touching little Evan's heart for eternity. It helped reinforce to me that my role as a mom in today's society is so important and that my job responsibilities as a stay-at-home mom are just as important as those moms who work each day.

-Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver- I am reading this book with my Bible Study Group and we are all learning so much... It's all about finding intimacy with God within the busyness of life... Many times I have felt like the pages were written just for me.....

-Karen Kingsbury Christian Fiction- Karen has always been one of my all-time favorite Christian fiction authors. Although all of her books are excellent, I am partial to the 3 series about the Baxter family. The first series is The Redemption Series, the second is The Firstborn Series, and the third is The Sunrise Series. I just finished the last book of the third series (shown above) and am so sad that she is finished with the Baxter family. Karen uses modern day events and trials to make you feel like you're a part of each book... I would definitely recommend these to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction!

  1. I really liked Shepherding a Child's heart as well. We are using many of the aspects for discipline. I haven't read the others, but will have to check them out! thanks for sharing! :)
