This month, I’m featuring books for Moms.
On this page, I curate for you books that I’ve read recently or books that I love and recommend to you for encouragement and spiritual growth. I’ll update it each month, so come back for new recommendations!
Rachel Macey Stafford’s book Only Love Today influenced me more than any other book I read last year. Only Love Today offers short daily readings that will inspire you to love, listen well, be present, and give grace to others and to yourself. Written by a mom of pre-teens, this book encouraged me to make small daily choices to love my young adult kids, husband, and others close to me.
Sticky Faith by Kara Powell and Chap Clark gave my husband and I many ideas for preparing our teens to carry their faith with them as they transitioned to college. The book will help you connect with your kids and talk with them about faith and values. I only wish I’d read it when my kids were in junior high because it’s never too early to start preparing them for life-long faith.
I haven’t read this one yet, but it’s next on my reading list. Here’s a snippet from the Amazon description: “In Fledge, counselor, educator, and mother Brenda L. Yoder helps Christian parents navigate the many transitions of the launching years. How do you parent tweens at home and young adults away from home at the same time? What’s a good balance between boundaries and freedom? How can you pray for your fledgling youth? And what do you do with all that mom grief?”
The Spirit-Led Heart by Suzanne Eller reminds us we have a Helper and shows us how to receive that help God wants to give us. It’s encouraging me to walk in a closer relationship to the Holy Spirit and let Him empower me, show God’s love to me, and guide me to impact the people around me.
What I loved best about this book was that each chapter ends with a Scripture verse, a promise, an invitation to live it out, and a prayer to ask the Holy Spirit for help.
Ginger Harrington’s book Holy in the Moment encourages us to make small daily choices to Believe, Choose, Love, Abide, Surrender, and Rest in God moment by moment. This book is not just about anxiety, but Ginger’s transparent sharing about her battle pulled me in from chapter one. If you feel overwhelmed, anxious, stressed out, or burned out, this book will help you find refreshment and renewal. Each chapter ends with a list of practical ideas you can try today to draw near to God and enjoy your life.
