My Booklist for the New Year!



The mantra in the Fuentes household is "readers are leaders, and leaders are readers". I absolutely love books and have done all that I can to pass that passion down to my children in our home.

As a Christian I am very selective about books because every books teaches a lesson or worldview if you will so I am always interested in books that will grow my children in character and in spirit. It is not always an easy job to do, but I am definitely up to the challenge of getting inspiring reading in front of them.

And that goes for myself too, and I love being in several books at one time. In case you didn't know, I also have bent towards reading books from the 18th century--I am definitely drawn to learning the wisdom from the past so don't be surprised if you find older titles on my list!.  Here is a quick peek of a partial list of some of the books I am checking out this year:

I am not a big Beth Moore fan but did do one of her workbooks early on in my Christian walk. This was free on Kindle at the time so I will give it a try.

These are just a few along with some business/blog type of reading as well! It should do a few months or so, it just really depends on how much time I actually make for reading.  I should also note that most of these I have on my Kindle and some are even free for a limited time.

Also, don't forget if you are still piecing together your booklist for winter or the new year, you might want to take advantage of our half off sale of the recently released The Pursuit of Motherhood and True Christian Motherhood. You can find it here. 


What will you be reading through this year? I would love to hear!

Please share below in the comments!



***Note: Though these books are on my list, they are not necessarily an endorsement (remember, I haven't read them yet!), if time allows I may do a review on them to tell you what I liked/disliked. If you decide to read along please remember to use discretion and the Scriptures as your final authority. ***



Encouraged here?
