I posted a pic of my one of my pages of kindle books the other day. I seriously have all sorts of madness of that badboy. I can turn it on and honestly read any of the books for any given mood I am in. Here are some of my favorites. Some I still need to finish.
Balancing it All by Candance Cameron Bure
This is usually my go to book at night. I am a few chapters away from finishing it. I just love her and her positive outlook on motherhood and marriage. She is totally a mom I would love to hang with. She gives great points on marriage and also friendships!
You are a BADASS by Jen Sincero
My friend Molly posted this the other day on facebook and I have yet to crack it open!! I am excited because I think it will be awesome for my fitness coaching business. I am learning to break outside my comfort zone slowly and stop doubting myself.
Drinking & Tweeting by my lover face Brandi Glanville
I just LOVE her, she is so darn blunt and honest, I seriously could not stop laughing. She tells it ALL. I mean ALL. Reading it made me feel more ballsy and want to be more direct and honest. Life is too short to BS people and pretend to be someone you're not. AMAZING and easy laughable read!
The Sinner's Guide to NFP by Simcha Fisher
Why yes, there has to be a nice natural family planning book and honestly the other ones are a tad boring to read. This one breaks it down to a normal easy to understand level. I have talked about NFP before and probably will now more because we are actually TRYING to do it this time. After 4 kids in 5 years it's time to fully understand my body!! haha. Anyways its a good read, I still need to finish the whole thing though!
Smart Martha's by Tami Kiser
I am always drawn to books by catholic moms since we are Catholic. I always like to see how they do it all. I am always a tad stressed trying to keep it all together so I like taking advice from moms who do it all with even MORE kids than us. This has amazing easy tips to make life with multiple kids flow easier and also to keep God at the center of your families life. Plus stuff for you and your husbands relationship! So it's an all in all amazing book!
Rescue Your Lovelife by Henry Cloud
This one SOUNDS horrible right? Don't worry one bit, our love life does not need rescued by a long shot BUT I do believe that marriages always need some TLC. You can get so caught up in your kids and work that you forget to work on your marriage. Jordan and I have an amazing marriage but I found some VERY useful tips in this book that changed the way I thought about things inside the marriage. The wife I was 4 years ago is not the same wife I am today. I am way more laid back and not so quick to jump to judgements, I know that comes with time but this book is amazing and I am so grateful that my friend who also has a very succesful marriage with 4 kids referred me to it. Just because your relationship is solid does not mean you can't learn a few tips to make it even more stable!
Teaching in Your Tiara by Rebecca French
A homeschooling book, why? you may ask. Because we still have NOT given up on the idea of one day homeschooling. We sent the boys to preschool last year and this year we have Vincent enrolled in Kindergarten but I am honestly STILL not sold on the idea of schooling, even private schooling. So in the meantime I am still learning and evolving how I could potentially homeschool the boys in their gradeschool ages. This book is honestly great. It shows me that even an unorganized mom like me could teach my kids at home!!! Great and funny book!
That's just a few of the books, I have tons more Real Housewives books and more homeschooling books on there but that is is gist of it! I honestly love reading, I would much rather pull up the kindle in darkness than watch an episode of TV. Gets my brain rolling a little more!
What's your favorite book??
I would love to add some more to my crazy list!
