My Top 5 “must-reads” for this summer

As a mom to 3 boys, wife, friend, daughter, sister and blogger I have very little down time.  However, I have learned over the years that I can prioritize my day however I want to.  I have chosen to make time to read every single day.  It has helped me so much in feeling refreshed the rest of the day, when I make my own “self-care” a priority.

Many times this happens at naptime or right before I go to bed.  First and foremost, I do make it a priority to do devotions but, there is always some other book I am reading as well.  Even if it takes me 3 months or more to finish it, I make this time for myself.

So, here are my “must-reads” for this summer.  These are all excellent books that you will not regret reading.

Many of you know, I like meaningful and helpful reads so, these all fit in that category.

1. Magnolia Story

This is on my list this summer and I have heard so many amazing reviews from friends about it.  I love their show and stand for Christ so, I’m pretty excited.

2.  Fear and Faith

This one I just finished and it has been a life-changer for me.  I have felt true freedom from so many things that have stolen my joy.  This is a must-read for every woman.

3.  Present over Perfect

I can’t say enough good things about this book.  If you want to find out how to let go of striving for perfection in various parts of life and want to live a more full and joyful life…read this!

4.  Uninvited

I went through some hard times this past year with friendship and this book helped me so much in realizing my worth in Christ & also gaining wisdom in how to deal with challenging friendships in the future! Such a helpful, life changing read.

5.  Kingdom Woman

This is another on my list but, the reviews are amazing and I have listened to so many messages from the author so, I’m excited to dig into this.

Take the time this summer to make yourself a priority and read one of these amazing books.  I guarantee they won’t be a waste of your time! Happy Summer friends!
