Being a mother is hard. The list of things that need to be taken care of is endless. The concern for our children is constantly on our minds and our love for them consumes every bit of us. So, I know what you are thinking when you see this list. WHO HAS TIME TO READ?!
The books I’ve collected for this list are practical for moms, short daily readings, resource books, small reflections, and calls to action in our homes.

God Bless You, Mothers!
