How to read for fun with little ones everywhere…

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

Be sure to check out Kelly’s Korner today to check out 
everyone’s favorite books!  
You might just find some GREAT summer reading!

Ok…I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again…I LOVE to read!  I don’t have the time to read near as much as I’d like…but I know one day there will be plenty of time.  One day, I won’t have anyone underneath my feet, no one calling “Mommy, Mommy”, not near as much laundry to wash, not any noses or bottoms to wipe…{sniff, sniff}…I’m ok with reading being on the back burner for now, trust me…I love my little ones.

Recently at MOPS we were talking about books and one mom asked me how in the world I get any reading done…you want the truth?  It’s just women here, right…don’t want to be offensive in mixed company…

I have books placed strategically, on the nightstand, on the end table in the living room, in the bathroom…

…bathroom?!?!?!?!?!  

Yes, in the bathroom! Now before you think that I spend hours in there taking care of things, ahem…let me assure you, I do not!  I have three little ones running/crawling around and I barely get a minute of peace to myself.  I am in and out in a flash and I may ready only ONE page…but it’s one more than I had read before I went in there!

How do you eat an elephant, I ask you?  One bite at a time!

How do you read a book, any book, with littles one in your care?  One page at a time!

So that being said, stick your favorite books in a lovely basket next to the potty and get to reading girl!

A few of my favorites:

ANYTHING by Francine Rivers!!!!

One of my favorite series by her is the three part “Mark of the Lion” Series.




But my favorite of hers is 



What a beautiful reminder of God’s love for us…how much He pursues us!  He wants a relationship with us no matter what we’ve done!

I also love reading anything to do with organization, hoping of course that somehow by just reading the book, I’ll get organized…guilty by association, right?

I also love to read anything that helps me strengthen my walk with my Savior.  God has given an apt word, spoken through other people’s writing, at just the right time in my life…so many times!  Thanks to those writers who let God use them.   Thanks, Matt Mikalantos

There are so many more I’d love to share with you…I can’t even begin to list them all!  Looking for a good book to read?  Ask me for a suggestion!!  About any type of books… well maybe except the Civil War…I’ll refer those requests to Bryan!

Happy reading!

Until next time,
