Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding - Why would I need to read a book on breastfeeding as I near weaning my fourth (and probably last) child?
Good question. And I'm glad you asked.
This book was published in 2009 and is authored by the same Ina May Gaskin that wrote the all-time favorite, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. I cannot help but wonder what took so long to have a book like this written and published.
It is the very FIRST book I have ever read on breastfeeding wisdom. It is vastly more than a "how-to" guide on breastfeeding basics or why "breast is best". Yes, it addresses these topics, but discusses nursing in a way that you feel you have hundreds of generations of breastfeeding advice at your fingertips.
War of Words: Getting to the Heart of Your Communication Struggles - I began a book study at church two weeks ago and this topic is definitely where I feel convicted right now. Some quotes that stand out are:
"He is a God who can be known because he is a God who speaks."
"Every word we speak is rooted either in the truth or in a lie."
"The Word became flesh because there was no other way to fix what is broken in us."
The Hiding Place - Imagine that God is using every situation in your life, both trials and triumphs, to bring glory to Himself.
