Summer Reading List
Summer is here and I love it! It is a time to soak in the sun, play outdoors, and slow down…hopefully! I love to read but don’t always make time for it. I love to read in the summer for some reason, especially on vacation. But now with a toddler that doesn’t really happen :). This summer I am going to try to spend more time reading. I have so many books I want to get to. I thought I would share with you my summer reading list and I would love to hear what you are reading too! Usually I start one book and finish it and then move on to the next, but I just couldn’t wait to start these books!
All of the books I am sharing below have really changed my heart, perspective, and the way I live my life. The Lord has really been working in me through these books and I am so excited to be on this journey with Him as He teaches me how to be a better wife, mom, and friend, to live a healthier life, to be grateful for what I have been given, and to discover my talents and use them to serve others!
1. The Honest Life By Jessica Alba- Easy read and great resource to use on a regular basis. She gives great tips on living a healthy life from the food you eat to the cleaners you use and even the way you decorate your house. Love this book! And I am a huge fan of the Honest Company. I will do a post soon on the products that I use from them because they are wonderful! If you are interested in ordering from the Honest Company you can go here. You can find the Honest Life here for a great deal!
2. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voscamp- Life. Changing. period. So so good so far! Ann Voscamp challenges us to live a life of gratitude even a midst the mundane daily tasks, pain, and even in experiencing deep loss. Beautifully written! Go get your copy here!
3. A Million Little Ways by Emily P. Freeman- I just started this book and I’m not very far into it, but I can already tell it’s a good one! Emily suggests that we were all created to be artists whether it is to be a painter, a scupltor, a teacher, a mom. She says, “It’s time to live as though we believe we have something to offer.” I am so excited about this one and can’t wait to read more! To purchase click here.
I am also going to be doing a Bible study with some moms from my MOPS group and I am really excited about it! We are doing Beth Moore’s Children of The Day study. I have done a Beth Moore study before and LOVED it! I am excited to see what the Lord is going to teach me. If you are interested in the workbook shown you can go here.
Friends, what are you reading right now?! I would love to hear your recommendations (especially on any good parenting books)! Please share with me either in the comments or through email. Hope you all have a great weekend!
