Let’s Get A Jump Start On That Summer Reading List!

May 3, 2019

I like to share what I’ve read/what I’m reading for two reasons:

1) accountability
2) in hopes it helps you guys put together your reading lists!


Since I read so much, I have to get the bulk of my reading materials at the library. I suggest placing items on hold, so you can just pick things up. Instead of needing to look through items with the kids in tow. I’ve found it really simplifies the process, and simplifying always equals more savings!

Memory Making Mom by Jessica Smartt- I loved this book! Jessica Smartt shares some really practical ways to make more memories together as a family. What I loved the most about this book is the way Jessica encourages you, while making sure you’re not guilty just encouraged.

7 by Jen Hatmaker- This book changed my heart in more ways than I can describe. It really made me recognize how much I waste, and helped position for me a more content heart and a heart of service to others.

The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy- This was a fun read. I loved it so much! I guess you’d call it a thriller? I don’t want to share too much and spoil anything, but put this on hold and read it by the pool this summer!

Mom Set Free by Jeannie Cunnion- This is not a super new book, so I’m sad that I didn’t read it sooner. Thankfully, a friend suggested it to me and I couldn’t devour it quickly enough! This would be a lovely book to get as a Mother’s Day gift!

Sacred Ground, Sticky Floors by Jami Amerine- Jami spoke to my heart in every single line. Iloved this book, and my only regret is that she didn’t write it when my boys were tiny, tiny.

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty- She’s one of my favorite authors, this was a fun book and would be wonderful to read beach side.

The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch- Highly recommend this book if you guys are looking to manage your tech time.
