I’ve wrapped up most of my summer reading list early this year, as I’m now opening up school books to study. Just in case you’re on a more “normal” routine, and want some ideas, here is my list:
Shauna Niequist is one of my favorite authors, and I adored this book. The honesty and creativity of her writing makes you feel like you are a dear friend; thoroughly hugged and inspired to share life with others.
I read this one on a road trip (as a passenger, obviously), and couldn’t put it down. I kept reading bits aloud, actually, wholeheartedly nodding “Yes” to her insights and discoveries.
Sweet encouragement from a duo of dear Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae abounds in this book-from-the heart for moms. Motherhood can be exhausting, and this book was refreshing.
I found some really valuable, practical tips for encouraging my children as we create art together in our homeschooling. (I’m not sure if that was the author’s intention, but I gleaned it anyway.) But deeper than that, he expounds on the spiritual aspect of creativity. I loved it!
This book is pure nourishment for the soul. It exudes joy, and walks you through some crucial steps for establishing a foundation of wholeness, truth and perspective, in order to fully experience life.
Reading this book felt like a precious, peaceful gift. It was a much-needed, fresh glimpse of life, of the awe and holiness everyday. I carried it in my purse for weeks, pulling it out for quick reads while waiting at appointments. It was an inspiring breath of fresh air.
