Mission of Motherhood, Sally Clarkson
After a few years of parenting little ones, moms know how much it can take to stay on an even keel, continually love and serve their families, and some may end up asking: “Why am I doing this?” This book offers the perspective and answers to many of those kind of questions.
Age of Opportunity, Paul David Tripp

This book will help you rid yourself of old mindsets about the teen years and show you, in practical ways, how to handle some of the challenges that could present themselves.
