I am going to try to remember to give updates on what I am reading, so I can keep to my book list for the year. If I miss an updates, please give me a reminder. 🙂


IMG_0580Happy Habits for Every Couple by Roger and Kathi Lipp – Kathi Lipp is joined by her husband, Roger, to write this book. Don’t skip the first part of the book. It is important to be reminded why we need to have couple time. Whether we go out for dinner, out for a walk, or spend time doing some goal-setting, having some time together on a more or less consistent basis helps us to remember why we married our spouse in the first place! The second part of the book has lots of great ideas for date nights to connect. There is a bit of planning involved, depending on if you need to buy things for a particular task, or if you will be need of a babysitter, but whatever you end up doing, I know you will enjoy spending some time together as a couple without the kids around.

Mindset for Moms by Jamie Martin – After having kids, I am all about the short-chapter books!! Jamie Martin does a wonderful job helping readers to find refreshment in the midst of the messes that are sometimes involved in mothering during those early years. She shares the struggles she has had, and how she has found a different mindset when it comes to parenting her children with a more joyful heart. It was the perfect time for me to read this book as my girls were recovering from sickness. It’s not always rainbows and unicorns, but I have learned so much as we live life together, and the have brought so much joy to my life.

EntreLeadership by Dave Ramsey – I know lots of people who have gone through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. They give raving reviews and it has truly proven to helped friends and others I know get out of debt!! Besides our mortgage, we have never been in debt. I am planning on reading Total Money Makeover and Smart Money Smart Kids, but I was intrigued by his book EntreLeadership, and wanted to know more of how Dave has found success. Since I had a few other books going at the same time, and this one was borrowed from the library, I only read a few chapters. It was a good read, and mostly things I knew already about being an entrepreneur and leader (I was a business major, you know), but great reminders about how to lead alongside the people in your team, not just overseeing them and managing them. I’m sure I’ll check it out again so I can finish the whole book.

Looking forward to reading these books in March. Anyone else want to join me?

Sooo…last year, I didn’t do a good job of updating you on the books I read. I lost track myself. :p But I have a little more accountability this year, so hopefully, I will share my thoughts on some of them. You will notice that there are some that are repeats from last year. It wasn’t that I didn’t read them. I did! And I really liked them, and I want to implement some of what I learned from them.
