7 Book Ideas on Motherhood


Where do we go to find encouragement in our mothering? We connect with our friends, perhaps our own mothers, or teaching in bible studies or church. Other times, we can curl up on the couch and receive perspective and insight from words written on a page.


To that end, I offer you a few book ideas on mothering. I've read almost all of these and have been challenged and spurred on in the role as both a mom and as a spiritual mother. You will find some of the kindle editions on sale at Amazon until Monday, so be sure to check out the links if you're interested!
