Best Books to Gift for Mother's Day

Best Books to Gift for Mother's Day

I vote for a new category in gifts for moms. Whether you need ideas to give your husband and kids, need ideas for your own mom, or want to get a gift for a special mom friend in your life, give a book.

Books have the opportunity to speak life into us. They open our eyes and ears to new ideas, perspectives, and people. We can discover new ways to approach a problem, hilarious stories, and how we aren’t not so alone in our experiences.

I vote we gift more books. Print books, eBooks, audiobooks, doesn’t matter. Toss them around like confetti and let them inspire the moms around you.

I’ve pulled together some of my favorite books for gifting to moms. These books cover a variety of topics but any of them could be perfect for a mom in your life. I wish I could wrap up a stack and gift them to all my favorite moms - but unfortunately I need to feed my family ;)

Today was hard.

Chores, dancing, and flowers - 8 places I found joy in the chaos this week

Chores, dancing, and flowers - 8 places I found joy in the chaos this week

Sorry for the break in posting these! Last weekend was a little crazy with dress rehearsal and the actual children's Christmas program for church and we lounged around on Sunday doing not much of anything. I've decided Sunday is not a great day for trying to get this posted so from here on out I'll be posting these on Mondays spanning the previous Sunday-Saturday. That gives me a little more breathing room to compile all my images and get it all typed up.
