Ok, real quick I wanted to send y’all my favorite 3 books I’m absolutely devouring so far in 2019. These are perfect for you, mama, because the first 2 are super short passages and/or chapters that you actually can find the time to read because it takes about 3 minutes! lol!
First up – The Daily Soul Sessions books (obvi!)
If your pregnant – get The Daily Soul Sessions For The Pregnant Mama. If you’re not pregnant – get The Daily Soul Sessions For Every Mama. The short, daily inspirations are so refreshing and comforting. I’ve loved diving back into my pregnancy book. It reminds me that I’m not alone in my feelings (hello hormones!) and that it’s ok to miss the woman I used to be. She is still there. I just have to work a little bit harder to honor her, remember her, and bring her back by being creative, positive, and inspired!
Second – Maria Shriver’s “I’ve Been Thinking”
This book is just awesome. Short chapters with titles like “The Power Of Faith”, and “I’m Who I Choose To Become”, and “The Power Of Letting Go” to name a few are incredibly inspiring and encouraging. This woman has been through a lot, and she’s come out on the other side with so much wisdom and kindness that I’m simply devouring her words. You will too, I know it!
Third – Lysa Terkeurst’s “The Best Yes”
Lysa Terkeurst is a Christian author and I really enjoy her writing style. She tells inspiring, real stories that help me relate to my every day problems and concerns. This book is all about “making wise decisions in the midst of endless demands” which LORD knows I need help with! I get paralyzed with indecision – do you? Lately I’ve been realizing that when I’m stuck in that limbo of not being able to make a decision, it’s because I’m letting myself be led by all the noise and chaos and media and social media around me. Instead of quietly going inside of myself and letting spirit lead me. This book is helping me take ownership of that.
There you have it, lady! Curl up with some coffee and take those 5 minutes for yourself. Or if you’re like me, you have 2 kids in your lap while you do it – but still! It’s the thought – and the inspiration – that counts!
