Best Books for Moms

A few moms today were talking about how hard it is to find new (GOOD) books. The topic of devotional books for moms – or for women – came up specifically. If you have a great one on your shelf, click to comment and tell us about it! (And maybe think about loaning it out at our swap morning on October 7.)

  1. The book I used this morning was ‘Out of the Spin Cycle: Devotions to Lighten Your Mother Load’ by Jen Hatmaker.

    I came across it this summer when I was asked to review it for my blog, and I *loved* it. It’s a good mix of churchy and practical and funny and encouraging, it asks good questions that I can think about all day, and each chapter is SHORT (important when you’re a mommy!).

  2. I don’t read a lot of devotion-type books, but I have really enjoyed Madeleine L’Engle’s autobiographical non-fiction, most recently Penguins and Golden Calves. She talks about her whole life, and motherhood is a big part of it. She approaches it very thoughtfully and prayerfully. Another fantastic one by her is A Two-Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage. Be warned, though; it is SAD.
