Mom’s Reading List: June

Hello, friends!  I do realize that June is a bit more than half-way done, but I still wanted to share what I am reading this month.  We’ve been a bit busy with the exterior painting project, everyday life, and something super special {once in a lifetime-ish} coming up this week too.  I promise to spill the beans in a few days, so be sure to look for my next blog post soon!

Here is what I have in my reading stack for this month.  Oh and please let me know if you’ve read any of these as I love to discuss how books move us to action and life changes.

1.So Close to Amazing: Stories of a DIY Life Gone Wrong . . . and Learning to Find the Beauty in Every Imperfection” by KariAnne Wood

Do you see that little Kindle Paperwhite all the way to the right in the picture up top?  I am normally a paperback book reader, but not for this book.  Wanna know why?  I have the incredible privilege of being a part of KariAnne’s book launch team!!  So exciting.  I feel like I am on the “inside” of this one and it is so much fun.

Enough about me, let’s move on to this book.  Friends, KariAnne is a gifted writer who makes me laugh out loud in one sentence and then get all teary-eyed in the next.  Her book has resonated with my journey so much and every time I take a few moments to sit down and read from So Close to Amazing, I walk away very blessed.  This book will be released on September 5th and you can pre-order it on Amazon by clicking here.

2. “Your Boy” by Vicki Courtney

This book has been sitting on my shelf for a few years and even made the cut when we moved to our farmhouse.  I had great intentions of reading it when I first purchased it, but I think my boys were just so young then.  I couldn’t see applying the truth Vicki shares at that time.  It’s never to late though, right?  I dusted it off and have been devouring this book in small chunks.  There have been some convicting moments that have spurred me to greater action and other times that I have felt encouraged about our path.  I so highly recommend this book to anyone with a boy.  We get this one chance to set them on the right path.  And even if they do not follow that path when they get older, as a mom, I will want to know that with God’s help, I did my best.  Join me in raising Godly son’s in an ungodly world!

3. “Present over Perfect” by Shauna Niequist

Oh, this book.  It has been in my Amazon cart for over a year.  And I keep running into this theme over and over again.  Hmmmm…maybe it’s time to finally hit order!  I haven’t cracked this one open yet, but plan to later this week.  Honestly, I am a bit nervous about what this book may do to my world.  I have a feeling that it may strike some nerves, chords, heart…you know, all those things that will make me say, “ouch”.  I pray that after the Holy Spirit reveals areas that I need to work on, that I then take some action steps.

I would love to hear your thoughts on these books.  And send me any recommendations for my future reading lists!
