Every summer I make sure to re-read three of my favorite books.  I wrote about the whys of this over here today, if you are interested.

Those books are:

The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer  (encourages living artistically and inspiring others to the same)
What is a Family by Edith Schaeffer (encourages joy and contentment in my mothering)
Spiritual Rhythm by Mark Buchanan (helps me connect the whys of seasonal development in my life)

If you have never read them, check them out.  I PROMISE you will be inspired, but more importantly feel refreshed by reading them.
