I think that every homeschooling mama has a deep love for books. We may have different tastes – fiction, non-fiction, historical, suspense, romance, Amish, etc. – but we value them and never feel like we have enough. That being said, how many books do you actually take time to read? I’m not talking about previewing a book for your child or reading a homeschooling book. I’m talking about reading a book that nourishes your soul and is something that you can escape to – even if it’s to that wonderful place that tells you how you can have a new kid by Friday.

May I suggest a book list? Several years ago, I made a New Year’s resolution to read one book a week. I didn’t reach my goal of 52 books, but you know what? I read a LOT! (30 to 40 books) I have repeated that resolution one other time, but some years I just say, “I am worth devoting 30 minutes a day to reading.” This takes the pressure off of me, because if I’m not careful it just becomes another thing on my to-do list. It is a justifiable, needful indulgence. I also made a commitment to not read my book until I’ve read my Bible first. This helps me stay true to my first desire – to nourish a heart for God. Something to consider if you strive to have a regular Bible time.

Think of the difference in your day if you knew that you were committed to reading for your own pleasure or self-improvement –  a small reward for taking care of the needs of precious family!
