We love to read at our house….okay, correction…I love to make sure my kids are reading and then provide the kids the time to read in their daily schedule. We also do “read-alouds” and daily devotionals where the kids read…we have books upon books. I buy them at yard sales and thrift stores, I download them on digital readers….Books! It may be a slight addiction of this homeschool mama’s!

Anyways, there are some great titles on these lists, make sure to check it out!

Readers are leaders. What are you reading for your personal development?

Below is a short list to get you started:

As A Man Thinketh – James Allen

The Richest Man in Babylon – George S. Clason ( for a free copy)

Thankful for the redemptive blood of Jesus. Restoration is available but you have to be willing to make the hard decisions . I'm happily married with two great kids, Abby 9 years, and John Michael, 7. We've lived in Nixa for 10 years now, but I grew up in Marion/West Memphis Arkansas, and I wouldn't move back, NEVER! I'm 34 and I believe that I'm living the best time of my life. I love my family and cherish the times that we get to spend together. I love Jesus and I'm not ashamed. I'm proud to be an American and I feel that living in this great nation is a blessing and not a curse. I'm the only child and it shows. I struggle with a temper but praise God it's not as bad as it used to be. I'm learning to be teachable and pliable although some of those lessons aren't always fun. I'm learning to be a giver instead of a taker. I love to hear my children laugh and I especially love to hear them tell each other that they love each other. I'm very proud of my family and I know that I AM BLESSED!!!
