These are a collection off books that have been of great value to me as a mom, as a student of child development, as a mom in waiting, as a foster mom, as a homemaker, as a work from home mompreneuer and as a follower of Christ.

Faith and Encouragement for the Mother’s Heart
If there is one way to come face to face with our shortcomings and failures, it’s through the magnifying mirror of motherhood. And yet there is so much beauty in the most mundane moments, so many opportunities to learn and share grace, and to use our daily experiences as teachable moments not only for our children, but also for ourselves. If you are struggling to find peace, freedom from worry or just want a deeper connection to God, this collection is for you, dear mama.
Infertility and Loss
When motherhood doesn’t come easily, the pain of infertility and of pregnancy or infant loss is an intensely personal and often lonely road. Few people know what to say and so they say nothing, or the say the complete wrong thing with all the best intentions.
If you have found yourself on a road you never expected to take in your journey to motherhood, you are not alone. This page has resources for moms in waiting who are exploring the options and who are looking for encouragement during the wait.
