Prior to law school and becoming Mom, one of my favorite past times was reading. There was nothing I loved more than cuddling up with a good book. Three years in law school, followed by two years as a new Mom, and let’s just say, I haven’t finished very many books in the past five years. As we are waiting for Baby #2 or Babies #2 & #3 to join our family, I’ve decided to use more of my free time to enjoy reading. Hopefully, as an added bonus, I will learn and grow in the process!
I’m already loving the first books on my reading list. They fall into three categories:
1) Spiritual Growth: Believing God, by Beth Moore. As an added bonus, this book is free for your kindle until January 10!
2) Parenting: Loving the Little Years, by Rachel Jankovic. I love that this book is about your attitude as a parent. As a bonus, the chapters are super short and easy to read for those of us who are busy Mom’s!
3) Adoption: Chosen With Purpose: A Story of Adoption & Identity, by Mark Molzen. This book, written by an adoptee does an amazing job of giving the adoptee and their parent’s perspective, namely that adoption is part of God’s plan!
I have many more on my list for the year to come. Some I am really looking forward to include, To Live is Christ by Beth Moore, The Open Hearted Way to Open Adoption by Lori Holden, and Shepherding A Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp. The one type of book I’m missing from my lists is a good fiction book. Any recommendations?
What are you reading this winter? I’m always looking for new books to add to my list!
