Just finished re-reading Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe by Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae. This is a great book for any mother who’s ever felt like they’re failing their children. Like I mentioned in my Ode to Motherhood post, there’s so much riding on mothers. So many voices telling you what you should do. Desperate helps you navigate finding your voice as a mother, defining how you want to be present in the lives of your children and aligning that to what God intended with motherhood. It teaches you how to build a support network, create beauty in your life and enjoy your children!
I’ve just finished reading Dr Kevin Leman’s Have a New Husband by Friday. I like Dr Leman’s practical advice on how to get your man on your side. This book helped me understand the psyche of men better however I’m still getting there when it comes to being the one who must get the ball rolling for results. My favourite line in the book: “well…you married him.” I would recommend Have a New Husband by Friday to any woman seeking to understand her man better. The title fools you into thinking you can change your man, until you realise that it must first start with you changing your approach. A great read, I always enjoy Dr Leman’s anecdotes coupled with great advice.
