Growing in Christ
We need to be continually growing in Christ.
Make sure to build a solid BIBLE study time first, because no book can substitute for His Word. Then for additional reading and growth, check these out!
Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be by Donna Partow
Living Beyond Yourself (Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study) by Beth Moore
The Right Kind of Strong by Mary Kassian
The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren
Books on Parenting
If you’re anything like me, you always want to prepare and arm yourself with good quality parenting advice. These are definitely my favs.
The first two are more geared to discipline and understanding your child’s behavior. The third one is great for practical parenting.
The last three are more about the heart of mothering. I know you’ll love them!

Books to Read with Your Kids

Plus, it’s a great way to bond with your child!
