Reading time is rare these days, but here’s what’s on my nightstand:

Long Days of Small Things: Motherhood as a Spiritual Discipline by Catherine McNiel.  From Amazon: “Dirty laundry, crayon-smeared bills, and smashed crackers . . . And there’s your Bible―buried under a pile of diapers. Bleary-eyed from lack of sleep, without a moment of peace and quiet, you wonder if the spiritual life you crave is even possible. But God sees you. He designed this parenting journey, after all. He understands the chaos of motherhood. And he joins you in everything―whether you’re scrubbing the floor, nursing a fussy newborn, or driving to soccer practice. Catherine McNiel invites you to connect with God right here, in the sacred mundane of every mothering moment.”

Unseen: The Gift of Being Hidden in a World That Loves to Be Noticed by Sara Hagerty.  From Amazon: “We may be “wasting” ourselves in a hidden corner today: The cubicle on the fourth floor. The hospital bedside of an elderly parent. The laundry room. But these are the places God uses to meet us with a radical love. These are the places that produce the kind of unhinged love in us that gives everything at His feet, whether or not anyone else ever proclaims our name, whether or not anyone else ever sees.”

I’m actually hosting an online book group on Facebook for this book starting this month.  The book isn’t about infertility, but the author has experience with infertility and the book group is for women who read my infertility blog.  You’re welcome to join us or share the group with friends who might be interested.

Oh Crap! Potty Training: Everything Modern Parents Need to Know to Do It Once and Do It Right by Jamie Glowacki. From Amazon: “Jamie Glowacki—potty-training expert, Pied Piper of Poop, and author of the popular guide, Oh Crap! Potty Training—shares her proven 6-step plan to help you toilet train your preschooler quickly and successfully.”

Fiercehearted: Live Fully, Love Bravely by Holley Gerth.  From Amazon: “In her most powerful book yet, beloved bestselling author Holley Gerth inspires her readers to become the stronger, braver, truer women they long to be by sharing personal stories of her own struggles and victories. As readers join Holley on this journey, they’ll discover a freedom they never imagined could be theirs: the freedom to experience life, love, and faith to the fullest because fear can no longer hold them back.”
