What I'm Reading This Month (April)

These are the books I'm working through this month...

Heartfelt Discipline: Following God's Path of Life to the Heart of Your Child

This has been an excellent read. Breaking down the walls of specific types of parenting and teaching parents how to be lead by the Spirit to train, correct, and discipline their children. I'm absolutely loving it.

"True biblical discipline is about much more than simply controlling a child's behavior. It's about shaping the heart, which is why sympathy is such an integral part of heartfelt discipline." -Clay Clarkson, Heartfelt Discipline

Beyond Survival: A Guide to Abundant-Life Homeschooling

This book lays out a solid foundation for homeschooling. Practical ways to help you build a firm homeschooling structure.

"It's essential to begin the building of our children's educational 'house' with a blueprint, a specific plan, an educational philosophy. The blueprint is the educational approach you use in teaching your children. It is the format you use to present information." -Diana Waring, Beyond Survival

Beyond Survival

Beautiful Battle: A Woman's Guide to Spiritual Warfare

There's no doubt there is a battle raging over here as we wrap up the end of our adoption process. I have grazed some of this book in the past, but I think there is no better time to pull it out then now.

"Spiritual warfare has more to do with the state of your heart before a holy God than a list of things to do or avoid. It involves interaction, sometimes confusion, falling down, getting back up. It involves your willingness to look foolish, to take crazy steps, to trust God's voice. While there are principles to know and practice, it's your ability to trust in God's power and authority that will bring about the victorious life." -Mary DeMuth, Beautiful Battle

On Becoming a Writer: What Every Blogger Needs to Know

BecomingWriter-3D-5002

My goals might be a bit high, but we'll see. I'm not doing virtual assistant work anymore, so I do have a bit more time on my hands...and having a quite time with my children in the afternoon while we all read quietly is time well spent, I'd say! Thirty minutes of reading, for me, is quite a few pages of a book.

What are you reading this month? I'm always looking for new titles to dive into!
