My Top Picks: Parenting Books

I remember once being asked what my favorite pregnancy book was and immediately a slew of ‘What to Expect When You’re Excepting’ type of books flooded my brain. But then as I was thinking about it – and honestly my best advice of what to read when pregnant is this…

Read parenting books, not pregnancy books.

You are only pregnant for a few months but you care for a child for at least 18 years. However, when you are sleep-deprived, exhausted, pulled on, and constantly caring for your precious child’s life, you really don’t have that much time to read a parenting book…or much desire to read it for that matter.

So I always tell my pregnant momma friends to read all the parenting books now, while you have more free time because once a baby enters the world, you will be hard-pressed to find that time…or have the energy to find that time ๐Ÿ˜‰

Below are some of my favorite parenting books that I have read throughout the years (and some of these I read in college for my education courses!). These are books that have been gifted to me by ministry leaders, from fellow moms, family, and friends as well.

Do you have a parenting book that you love? Comment your favorite below!

*Please note that I am NOT an expert at parenting and fail daily, but I find comfort in knowing that God is always in control and He is the ultimate Father, He is the Redeemer and He will never fail me or my children.
