Tardy Tuesday Topic: Favorite Books

Blog time became nap time yesterday, so happy Wednesday Topic!

What 2-3 books have been most helpful or encouraging to you as a mom serving God on the foreign mission field? Why? If you are in the US, what 2-3 books have blessed you most as a mom serving God stateside and why? And of course the Bible is already a given!

    I would love these books no matter where I live, but I thought I would still list them here because they’ve really helped me in the season of mommy hood. Some days I just don’t get a lot of time in the word and these give me fuel to get through the day. They are weighty devotionals or prayers that give me “meat” to meditate on through out the day.

    CH Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening
    The Valley of Vision – Collection of Puritan Prayers
    Jesus Calling – Sarah Young

    “When Helping Hurts” by Fikkert and Corbett. This books reminds me that I have something to offer, even when I feel hopeless to help.

    I’m loving Jesus Calling too!
    Also on practical parenting, “Don’t Make Me Count to Three” was excellent, as was Shepherding a Child’s Heart both of which I should re-read now that my boys are in different stages of life. should reread it! 🙂

    When I first moved to Singapore and was having a hard time transitioning, a friend lent me the book Strong Women, Soft Hearts, by Paula Reinhart. I read it at least 5 times during our five years there, and even lead a small group on it. It has reminded me to keep my trust in God and my heart open to whatever life brings, because I know that He is in control of it.

    I think also Third Culture Kids, of course. It’s been invaluable in understanding my children and how they see the world as they grow up overseas.
