Many of my in-real-life friends know that I love to recommend books – even if it’s something I haven’t read yet! I’ll say things like, “Have you heard about this book? So-and-so read it and it’s really good – you should read it too!”
Hands-Free Mama by Rachel Macy Stafford
I completely agree with the author when she says that, “Hands free Mama is your guide to putting down the phone, burning the to-do list, and letting go of perfection to grasp what really matters!”
Rachel removes the shame that comes from parenting guilt as she offers hope to the mama who’s struggling. This is a must-read for any mother who spends a lot of time on technology or who thinks she’s too busy to spend quality time with her kids.
His Needs, Her Needs by Williard F. Harley Jr.
It’s no big secret that men and women are different! So it makes sense that we need different things from each-other. Harley thoroughly discusses those differences and needs, as well as teaches his readers how to meet their spouse’s top desires.
My husband and I read His Needs, Her Needs together when our oldest was just a baby and the things we learned in this book have been invaluable to our marriage throughout the years.
Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst
I read Unglued with the hopes of gaining a few new tips about handling negative emotions a little better. I came away with so much more than that.
I learned that burying feelings inside is just as harmful as letting them out improperly. I was given tips, tools, and scripture for how to properly handle confrontation, disappointment, anger, and other types of conflict.
Frumps to Pumps by Sarah Mae
Does a book about clothes even belong on this relationship list? I believe it does because it can be hard to be taken seriously by others if we’re always wearing old t-shirts and ratty jeans, or if we’re frumpy and grumpy.
Frumps to Pumps was just what I needed for the motivation to get – and stay – dressed in cute clothes every day! Since starting Sarah’s challenge, I feel better, I look better, I’m more productive, and I don’t panic when the doorbell rings.
The Bible by God
From marriage and friendships to parenting and loss, The Bible is the wisest relationship book that will ever exist, and the more I read it, the more I learn. It’s a book that never stops being new!
What fabulous books have I missed – let me know in the comments!
