Winter is a my favorite time to snuggle on the recliner with a good book!
If you enjoy reading and learning as half as much as I do, here are some terrific books I’ve been enjoying that you’ll want to add to your collection:
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families – This is an all-encompassing family book for every age and stage which includes many practical examples and entertaining anecdotes. You owe it to your family to have this guidebook by master personal development expert Stephen Covey in a prominent place on your bookshelf. And if you like this one, he has several more I recommend you read!
How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk – I’ve often said that when I become president, I will sign a law mandating that this classic book be bundled with all pregnancy tests. (Negative results may allow for a refund.) This acclaimed book eloquently lays out the fundamental basics of communication and relationships- a must have for any parent or expectant parent!
Choice Theory is a fun read, yet a transformational book. One idea that I learned (and agree with 90% of the time!) is that we don’t get into a bad mood, fall in love, or get a headache. We CHOOSE to be in a bad mood, choose to love, and choose to have our head pound- as Dr. Glasser points out- generally subconsciously. This book will allow you to reclaim your ability to choose the life you want for your family and not be a victim of circumstances. An exceptionally empowering book with the ability to dramatically alter your family’s future.
Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul A heartwarming collection of short stories that will warm your spirit and inspire your family. A perfect gift for any mom- and a wonderful treat for yourself!
