Must have books for Christian Mothers

I have been recieving a lot of emails and messages regarding books I am reading and sharing about being a Christian Mom on my facebook, instagram ,  and Google+  accounts. So, I wanted to begin this year with a list of books I have read, am reading or are on my shelf to read.

These books, links and eBooks are written for Christian Mothers and have helped me in this journey. I love reading books, especially books by authors who are parents and have their heart focused on God. Truly, a heart focused on God desires to worship and serve Him.

As a parent, that means discipling our children and growing them for His glory and not the glory of the world (or for my own glory). My heart is to truly equip Moms (and Dads) to disciplefollow and educatefollow their children. I pray this list blesses you. Please come back often, as it will grow!

  1. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    This is a great list. My sister in law is big on reading these types of books, so I will have to pass this list along to her :)

  2. Heart of Anger, Duties of Parents and Give Them Grace are on my list, along with Fierce Women and A Million Little Things. Currently reading Don’t Make Me Count to Three, Unglued and The Education of A Child.

  3. Hope for the Weary Mom definitely sounds good. I need to look at that one.

  4. I don’t currently have any books going, but I have a mile long list on Goodreads. Some of these look interesting – I may be adding them to my “to read” list!

  5. I know quite a few moms that would benefit from this list. Thanks for sharing.

  6. This looks like a really long, extensive list! I’m currently reading “The Invisible Thread” – it’s awesome!

  7. I’m currently reading The Confident Woman & the Devotional that goes along with it. I’m liking it so far.

  8. Thanks for this fantastic list. I’m going to check some of those out this new year of reading.

  9. I’ve had some of these on my to-be-read list forever. I need to actually get to them!

  10. I really want to check out Heart of Anger. I feel like that could be helpful with my youngest.

  11. What a great list! I’m definitely going to check a few of these out.

  12. we have i think 6 bibles here!! my littler 2 kids each got a kid version for their baptism- my 4 year old calls hers “my bi” and we read Noah’s Ark from it almost daily. My oldest has a kids bible and got her first “true” bible at the end of 2nd grade at church. she actually thought she could just sit down and read it cover to cover, so we have had some interesting conversations about ways to read the bible

  13. I really enjoyed The Power of a Praying Parent. I also read The Power of a Praying Wife, but there were a few chapters in that with which I differed a bit.

  14. What a great list, thanks for sharing. I’m currently reading the Seasons of the Heart devotional, as well as The Five Love Languages for Children and Discipline without Shouting or Spanking.

  15. Thanks for sharing these. Great list.

  16. Thank you so much for this list! I am reading a LOT more so I can incorporate these books!

  17. Amy Desrosiers says:

    I am looking to expand my reading list, and am going to keep this list on hand. Of curse we already own a bible that we love.

  18. Thanks so much for the recommendations. Looks like a lot of good reading.

  19. Thank you for sharing this list. One of my favorites that I’m reading right now is How To Help Your Child Really Love Jesus. It’s so much to take in that I keep taking notes and try to put things into practice before moving on. I haven’t gotten very far yet as a result :-)

  20. I have read a lot of these (we must like the same type of books!) but some I will have to add to my list for this year!

  21. I think this list is great for all parents, christian or not. Especially the second book.

  22. I’m not a mom, and most likely won’t ever be… so these don’t quite apply to me. I would love to see a list like this for women though! I’m sure there would be lots that I could add to my reading list!

  23. Love, love, love Don’t Make Me Count To Three, so good. My husband and I are reading it together. She references some of Ted’s Tripp book, Shepherding the Heart of a Child.
    Love the list, will look into some of these!!
