Mother’s Day is coming soon and I always look forward to it. It’s a day to celebrate my greatest calling in life. This is a day when I get treated by my family. I don’t cook on Mother’s Day, so I enjoy getting to go out to a restaurant, getting take out, or letting my kids prepare a meal. What’s your favorite thing about Mother’s Day? I’ve been a mother for 39 years, and my favorite thing is the love of my family.

Mothers don’t always have much time, because we’re so busy. When children are small, there is no time for relaxing. We seem to be chasing children day and night. As they grow older, we seem to live in the car. I loved taking my children to many activities. When they leave home, I always am planning my next trip to visit them.

I always spent much of my spare time reading books. When my children were very young, I would read about breastfeeding, baby personalities and sleep habits, and nutrition. As they got older I read tons of books about child development, learning, and homeschooling. I continued reading tons of books about homeschooling, learning styles, and teenagers. When I could, I loved reading books that were devotionals or Christian living books. Now, I’m free to read anything that interests me.

I love reading Christian living books, clean romances, and historical books. There are so many great books out there, and I’m sure I’ll never be able to read all the ones that I would like. I even started a book blog so that I could review clean and family-friendly books to share with my readers. I would like to share with you some of the books that I think are perfect for a mom who is serious about her Christian calling.

Older Mom Reads

Although I’ve read many of these books, I haven’t read them all. I’ve heard quite a few of the authors speak at conventions and they were tremendous! One book I actually wore out from using it so much, “The Power of a Praying Parent”. It was such a blessing.

I still need to finish reading Power of a Praying parent. I’m not much of a reader, unfortunately, and bought this book when my 2 boys were younger. Now they are 19 and 21. The book is still relevant, now to go find it! Thank you for the giveaway.

I’m still pondering which card I would most enjoy, but in the meantime, I’ve revisited some resources I hadn’t thought about in a while and discovered some that were new to me.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Christy DuBois · May 7, 2021 at 1:41 pm

I have read some of the books you listed. One that stood out to me that I read while I was pregnant was The Gift and I canโ€™t remember who wrote it. It was biblically based about the gift of a child. It stuck with me.
You described some of the stages so accurately. Today I enjoy reading all types books except most sci fi and some biographies are kinda boring depending. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

Megan Allen · May 7, 2021 at 5:02 pm

Mothering is the hardest job with the most benefits! As I read about you reading the different books as your children sounds as if I am reading my own story! I hope all of the momas out there have an amazing Mothers day!
