I often get asked, “How do you find time to read as a homemaker?” Apparently I am not the only one who gets this question!

- “The Power of A Positive Mom” – by Karol Ladd
- “Raising Unselfish Children In A Self-Absorbed World” – by Jill Rigby
- “Love As A Way Of Life: Seven Keys to Transforming Every Aspect Of Your Life” – by Gary Chapman (and also The Five Love Languages of Children as well)
- “The Uncommon Woman” and “Growing Grateful Kids: Teaching Them To Appreciate an Extraordinary God In Ordinary Places.” by Susie Larson
