At such a time as this…what are you reading? Instagram posts? Tik Tok posts? Facebook? Or something else…a great motivational read? Mystery? Devotional? Biography? What are you reading that is serving you in a positive way? Teaching you something? Taking you away from this chaos and into a make-believe place? Pushing you to be your best self?
This is Mama’s Minute…and today we are have a brief chat about what mamas are reading in 2021.
Just as we talked all about encouraging our children to read on Tuesday’s episode…we also need to think about what we are feeding our brain and heart!
I asked mamas in our new Facebook Group, The Whole Mamas, to share the titles of books they are reading right now…and oh my…did they provide!! Suggestions ranged from everything from The Librarian of Auschwitz to Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey to Oh Crap! Potty Training: Everything Modern Parents Need to Know to Do It Once and Do It Right by Jamie Glowacki to Untamed by Glennon Doyle…to the Bible.
Even if you read a page a day, you are doing it! Think of how many books you can read this year and stick to it! Think of how many people you will meet, places you will visit, and stories you will experience…just by picking up a book!
In fact, start a new one this weekend! Grab a new book, a mug of something delicious, and give yourself even five minutes to get reading! Feel free to message me what you started and don’t forget to join our FB group…The Whole Mamas!
