in the book bag


I’m finding myself gathering books in various places in the house for a few minutes of reading when time and little ones allow it :: some great reads so far~

Mudhouse Sabbath: this book is a gem! The author converted from Judaism to Christianity not long ago and writes of the wonderful traditions she remembers in her Jewish home; and namely how Christians can learn from those practices and their meanings. I’m loving this one.

Grace-Based Parenting: still influencing my journey as a mother & inspiring great conversations with my spouse.

Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth: my labor prep, at least mentally! I had not read this one before and enjoyed it for the most part. Some of the information is a bit outdated as to what practices hospitals have as standards, but this midwife writes eloquently on the beauty of pursuing natural un-medicated birth if possible—whether at home, a birthing center or a hospital.

Christian Writer’s Market Guide: oh, I’ve been so tentative in this area of publication and even welcomed the necessary pause resulting from being quite sick the first trimester & beyond—a wonderful delay! And now, even with baby on the horizon, I take small steps forward once again. This book helps to figure it all out.

The Art of Simple Food: already in my Amazon wish list as one to own—I really like this cookbook! The author focuses on how cooking food does not need to be complicated in order to be delicious and how to work with very good ingredients from the get-go. Lots of great info here.

Mothers and Daughters at Home: because we love to create around here; a variety of fun projects we’ll bookmark to try at some point.

And not pictured are the owner’s guide to my camera (trying out new techniques for newborn pics) and The Private World of Tasha Tudor, which I’m waiting on from the library. Ahhh, how I love a good book!
