5 Days Of Our Favorite Books - Day 4 ~ Blog Hop

Welcome to day 4 of the blog hop.  Today I will talk about some books that changed my life.  These are the books I would recommend reading to anyone and everyone but especially people getting ready to marry, married or parents.

1) The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman.  This book saved my marriage (with the help of The Lord!)  It really shows you how to love and why to love. 

2) The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell.  This was the first book I read in the series and I think it was so important.  Just learning to fill your child's love tank is essential to a healthy relationship.

 3)  Cleaning House: A Mom's Twelve-Month Experiment to Rid Her Home of Youth Entitlement by Kay Wills Wyma.  This book changed the way I looked at my kids.  I saw that they were capable of so much more than I gave them credit for.  


4)   The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey.  This book is still a work in progress for us.  It has given me hop for paying down debt and achieving financial freedom.  

5)  The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home by Susan Wise Bauer and Jesse Wise.  This is the book that taught me to how to plan my children's education.  I think it is essential for anyone wanting to teach Classical or Charlotte Mason educational methods. 

 I hope you will join me again tomorrow for the last day of our hop!  I saved the best for last!!   Be sure to visit the rest of the hop by clicking on the image below.  I've highlighted a few if you just want to stop by one or two:
