Talking with Your Daughter About Best Friends and Mean Girls (8 Great Dates) by Dannah Gresh – I have a few friends who plan one-on-one dates with each of their kiddos, and it is something I would love to incorporate into our family life. We do a ton of stuff all together, but one-on-ones have been rare since Emily started Kindergarten and is able to participate in most of the activities that Melody participates in. As the tween years approach, I think this is a great guide to help me stay connected, especially with Melody as she deals with more relational stuff with friends, neighbors, mean girls, BFFs, her sister, God, boys, and us – her parents! Each date includes an overview, an audio message from their website, a challenge (object lesson), and some girl talk time. There is also an alternative to do this as a small group, and do the girl talk time alone. And it ends in a short time of prayer.

A Girl’s Guide to Best Friends and Mean Girls by Dannah Gresh – I only skimmed this one as it is actually intended for tween girls. It is another great resource for young girls to read through. Instead of having to make decisions on the fly about choosing friends, it is a guide to being intentional about who to build relationships with and how to deal with relationships that might not be great.

Classical Christian Education Made Approachable by Classical Conversations – I needed this one to get my head into the homeschool game. This is a second reading for me since we started preschool homeschooling years ago. (Although I didn’t really realize that was what I was doing…) The book discusses the different educational models, and in the appendix there are practical real-life schedule for a homeschool day. I really like how the book also compares education to building a home and what it takes for it to all come together.

The Get Yourself Organized Project by Kathi Lipp – I was a little hasty in choosing this book for my to-read list this month because all I did was read it. I did not have time to actually put anything into action, which defeats the purpose of the book. But I do always enjoy a good Kathi Lipp book, and they’re all good! Next go-around I would love to actually implement the steps to having less mess and stress in my life!! :p
