Great books for mom’s heart. And maybe a Starbucks card so she can have some coffee and quiet to read them. Here are some books that I recommend:
Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe For the mom you know who just needs to know there is a light at the end of very long days.
The Busy Homeschool Mom’s Guide to Romance A fun and straightforward read to put a spark back into a homeschooling marriage. A happy healthy marriage makes for a much more fun house!
Radical Hospitality: Benedict’s Way of Love: Benedict’s Way of Love This book completely challenged the concept of hospitality I had and really helped me to see what Christ like hospitality looks like.
Dear Mom Letters A great book that touches on so many mom emotions and gives encouragement by the barrel full!
How to Have a HEART for Your Kids A book to help focus priorities, filled with awesome advice from veteran homeschool mama of 7 blessings, Rachael Carman. The HEART acronym is awesome!
The Unwired Mom For the mom who want to step away from technology.
Training Up a Little Guy: Inspiration and Wisdom for Raising Boys (for boy moms)A sweet book of encouragement and wisdom for mamas with little guys!
Conventions and Retreats
There is nothing like getting new ideas for the nuts and bolts of homeschooling while being discipled to by awesome encouragers AND getting to check out great curriculum. Teach Them Diligently and Great Homeschool Conventions are both wonderful Christian homeschool convention with multiple locations.
You can read all about my first Teach Them Diligently experience! It was my first homeschool convention!
And over the holidays, as Mom get’s busy and tired, make sure she gets plenty of rest and snuggles! The best gift we get all year round is sweet time with our family!
