The Gifts of Imperfection

I’m a long time follower of Brené Brown’s work, and The Gifts of Imperfection is by far my favorite book of hers. In this book, Brené gives very useful “guideposts” on ways to cultivate wholehearted living. When I first read this book, I journaled as I went along and I highly recommend doing the same. I now reference The Gifts of Imperfection multiple times a year, and I’m sure I’ll be rereading it soon!

I Thought It Was Just Me (But It Isn’t)

Brené Brown begins her writing career strong with I Thought It Was Just Me (But It Isn’t). This book sets the stage for understanding shame and overcoming its potential control on our lives by discussing the power of vulnerability with people was trust. We live in a world that tries to tell us who we are and who we are meant to be, but Brené challenges you to live authentically.

Thirty-One Prayers for my Husband

Ladies, Thirty-One Prayers for my Husband is a wonderful resource to own. Jennifer Smith writes in prayers you can pray word for word, but she also includes journaling space. Each prayer has is given a subject and Bible verse, so you can reference it when you’re needing help in praying a certain topic over your husband. As a newlywed, this book was incredibly helpful in opening my eyes to different areas in which my husband might need prayer, and I know this will be a book I reference frequently.
