I don’t really know when I got into the habit of reading parenting and family books on a pretty regular basis, but these days I usually read one of two parenting books a month.

What I’ve learned is that you absolutely have to take them with a grain of salt. I kind of look at reading them as my continuing education as a stay at home mother. I recognize that not every single thing will be applicable in my home, but by taking nuggets of wisdom I’m inspired and encouraged to engage in my role as a mother and wife. (even if it’s admittedly a little cheesy!)

The books I’m sharing today are some of my favorites I’ve read as a young mother and some I’d suggest you add to your library hold list! I’m sharing these in no particular order. Also, I have linked these on Amazon but these aren’t affiliate links)

1) Strengths Based Parenting- I really enjoyed this book, it helped me really identify places I excel as a mama!

2) The Importance of Being Little: What Preschoolers Really Need from Grownups. I have actually read this book three times! I loved it, and I learned so much. The author was a preschool teacher for decades if I remember correctly and her wisdom and encouragement was inspiring.

3) The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place– This book is one I listened at the start of this year when I really decided to step out and pursue less technology in our home. This book is a little more radical, but it gave me really practical, tangible action items.

4) Sticky Foor, Sacred Ground- I have one grievance about this book. Why didn’t she write it when I had two babies two!? The author spoke to my heart in a way I can’t adequately convey. This is a book I will likely give to all my loved ones at their baby showers.

5) Missional Motherhood- Another book of just pure encouragement and relatable honesty Missional Motherhood is wonderful!

6) Grateful Kids, Entitled World- I think this is a must read for our generation. It’s funny and honest, yet gets to the heart of the matter!

7) Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids–I know I said I didn’t have a favorite and I wouldn’t favor any, but I lied. This is the best parenting book in the entire universe. I love it with my whole heart, and I’m forever grateful to the mama who recommended it to me!

8) This isn’t really a parenting book, but can I encourage ya’ll to read Little House on The Prairie with your kids? The boys and I went through them all recently, and we are currently watching the show and wow. It’s a great one for teaching work ethic and gratitude!
