Hi ya'll. Looking for some good Christian Mama books to uplift my spirits. My DD is 6 mths old and she is wild one. 

I have really struggled with the transition and am looking to spend some time reflecting and reading.

Any suggestions?

Rev. Wayne Monbleau is a great pastor. Really down to earth and has lots of great books and CDs.

I just started reading The Mission of Motherhood by sally clarkson.  i heard many good thing about her and her books.   she also has a book called the ministry of motherhood.

 

since amazon had a deal for 3 books, i also got her book seasons of a mothers heart.

 

the titles alone calm me and remind me to appreciate my little ones.


Once again, Chesapeake me!

motherhood: a spiritual journey by ellyn sanna  I loved this book b/c she addresses the light and the shadows of motherhood.

 

everyday miracles: unexpected blessings in a mother's day by dale hanson bourke

 

I'm editing my book about struggling with motherhood.  (a woman goes on retreat and meets jesus.)  If you're interested and pm me your email I can let you know when i publish it.

My fave is Close to Home by Molly Sabourin


The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

anyone read "Power of a Praying Wife"? I am thinking about getting it, but sometimes don't like super mainstream books like that.
