More books for 2013 and the one I am most excited about!

So, here are a few more books on my "to read this year" pile. (I know, it's going to be a tall stack, but I love to read!)

I've actually read Simplicity Parenting before but I keep checking it out of the library. I look forward to having my own copy to underline and dog-ear.

Some fun fiction by a writer and artist of The Rabbit Room

This comes highly recommended from my nutritionist- I look forward to diving in.

And.... drum roll please.... the book I am MOST looking forward to reading and studying and re-reading this year is

Desperate by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson

Sally has a new book, Sally has a new book! Can you picture my happy dance? This one is going to be a game-changer. So many moms wish they had a mentor and this book is exactly that. Sarah Mae (mom of young ones) and Sally (experienced mom) wrote letters to each other as mentor and mentee. The result is pure encouragement and hope for every mom. Please get a copy, gather a few friends, read it together. (There are some fantastic giveaways at sarahmae.com this week).

"Be yourself; be the best and most excellent and most righteous self you can be, but live in the freedom of God's call and design on your life. I love who you are and how God uses you. When you learn to hold his hand and walk by faith and obedience, you just might find yourself in the Hall of Faith of those who followed hard after Him and were allowed to tell a story of faith in their lifetimes." -Sally Clarkson, from Desperate

This book will help you do that!
