Sometimes I get asked what my favorite books are and what I am reading. Most of the time the questions come from someone who is raising boys. Here is a small list of books I have read and think are great for boys (and girls alike).
Wild at Heart by John Eldredge: I have read this book each time we found out we were having a little boy. It is great at understand some of the complexities of my son’s hearts as well as where their desires come from.
You Can’t Make Me But You Can Persuade Me by Cynthia Tobias: This is a wonderful book about raising a strong willed child and how to channel that characteristic into a wonderful strength.
The Way They Learn by Cynthia Tobias: This book is great for understand the differences in children and finding a way to reach each of them in unique ways.
Vital Friends by Tom Rath: This is one I personally like. I think as moms we are asked to either be friendly with everyone or keep to our inner circle. This books helps define where you need healthy relationships and I think helps you realize you don’t have to be all things to all people.
The Prayer of Jesus by Hank Hanegraaff: I am just beginning this one but I love it. It has already given me a new perspective in praying and finding intimacy with God through prayer.
I would love to hear of others you are reading!
