Happy Friday, mama!
How are you doing today? Hopefully great, but if not, I’ve got an awesome post for you! I love reading, especially non-fiction books. I find it so uplifting and inspirational (most of the time). So, today I’m going to share some of my favorite inspirational books for moms.
My Top Three Books
Mothering with Spiritual Power, is by far my favorite inspirational book for moms. It has completely changed the way I look at scripture in relation to my motherhood. The chapters are short enough to allow you to actually get through the book quickly, but meaty enough to fill your soul with inspiration.
Next up is Sarah Mae’s home keeping book, How to Have a Martha Home the Mary Way. This book is a game changer, guys. While it doesn’t deal specifically with motherhood, it does deal with being a homemaker. And those two things basically go hand in hand. It’s a thirty day challenge to find the balance between the practical and spiritual aspects of homemaking. I love that concept! Each day has a practical to-do and a spiritual task. I typically took more than one day to complete each “chapter” (daily challenge). Like the previous book, this one changed the way I’ve applied scripture to my life as a wife, mother and homemaker. Any book that does that, is a keeper!
The Whole Brain Child is different from the other two books I’ve mentioned because it isn’t religiously based. In fact, it’s science-based. This book taught me so much about how children’s brains work. It is truly amazing! I think this falls under the inspirational book category, because the things it taught me really inspired me to be a better mother. It helped me to understand some of my toddlers obnoxious and frustrating behavior. It inspired me to change some aspects of my parenting for the better. I cannot recommend this book enough.
That’s great, but why do I need to read inspirational non-fiction? I like my fluff books!
It’s true, nothing beats a good fluff book, but life is all about balance. Being a mom doesn’t mean that you get to stop learning and growing and developing as an individual! Non-fiction can expand your mind in ways that fiction just can’t (I realize that the same could be said in defense of reading fiction….all about balance, my friends). Plus, you know it’s an ego-booster to say you’re a mom that loves non-fiction. This is my favorite article about non-fiction. If it doesn’t inspire you to read some non-fiction books, I’m not sure what would!
