Personal Growth Books

    • Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist
      • I loved this book. It helped me take a deep breath and know that God isn’t demanding my perfection as much as He wants me to settle in next to Him. Such a good read for moms who feel like they are never enough.
    • What Women Fear by Angie Smith
      • For those mamas who struggle with fear, this a great resource. She takes you through the common fears and illuminates it with great truth from God’s Word. She makes you feel like you’re not the only one who struggles with fear!
    • So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore
      • This book is great for ANY woman to read. It will remind you who you are in God’s eyes, and it will give you the courage and boost you need to love yourself, and to feel/act confident in your daily life. I loved this book in audio form because it allows me to listen while I do other mom chores.
    • Grace Unfolding by Becky Thompson
      • This book is a breath of fresh air, reminding Moms that parenting is not about perfection, it’s about embracing the imperfection and drawing closer to God in both the good days and the not so good days.  By the end of this book you feel like you’ve just had an amazing, re-energizing conversation over coffee with a good friend.
    • Hope Heals by Katherine and Jay Wolf
      • I had the privilege of being on the launch team for this book and I was absolutely riveted by their story of faith and loss and trust. I finished the book in about three days, and that is really saying something for a mom of littles!
    • Captivating by Stasi and John Eldredge
      • This is one of my favorite books about womanhood and walking with God that I have ever read. It literally changed my life when I read it.
    • Fearless by Max Lucado
      • As a woman with a fear-bent, this was a very helpful book to read.
    • Calm My Anxious Heart: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Contentment by Linda Dillow
      • I love this book so much that I’ve loaned it out too many times and now don’t have a copy! I read it at least  I read it at least 15 years ago still remember much of the encouragement she shared.
  • Organizing You by Shannon Upton
    •  This is more than just a book about organization and cleaning house. It does give great ideas about how to manage all of that, but it also confronts the “spiritual clutter” in our hearts and minds.
    • Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers
      • Because sometimes Mama needs to read some fiction too! I loved this series; it captivated me as well as gave me new insight into some of the New Testament Bible times because of the way she included historical facts and information.
