Today as we get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day I want to celebrate some of the best Christian books for moms.
I’ve been a mom for well over two decades now. Mothering has singlehandedly been the biggest task God has used to chisel and shape me. I’m honestly grateful for the good and the hard days. The good days have been glorious. The hard days have stretched me far past my own ability, revealed the sin I so comfortably hold to and sent me desperate to God to make me more like him.
How many times I have had to apologize through tears to my children who see me as I really am.
And how many times I’ve told them this — THIS — is why I need a Savior, and I hope they will see me become more like Christ next month and next year and the year after until he takes me home.
Some of these books have changed the trajectory of my mothering. Some have walked me through struggles or questions and some have inspired me to be more.
So today I’m sharing the best Christian books for moms. Be sure to scroll through the whole book list because it includes books for new moms, moms of sons, moms of daughters, special needs moms, adoptive and foster moms, moms grieving miscarriage and baby loss, empty nest moms and even grandmoms! The list also has some wonderful devotional books for moms.
