Another week, another couple of books that I’m really excited to tell you about.

I’m making some goals with my life (including more fun pronto), but I’m not putting any pressure on myself to be THE MOST DISCIPLINED or THE MOST PERFECT version of me.

Today’s Tuebook Tuesday books speak right into that- the importance of finding beauty in imperfection.

The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith

nestingplaceYou may know her better as Nester, by Myquillyn is absolutely amazing and one of the greatest gals I know.

Here’s why you need to buy this hardback book. THE PICTURES and THE WORDS. They are just purely beautiful. I cannot quit flipping, page to page, and reading all the things that Myquillyn has to say (in her perfectly Nester way) and then staring at every picture.

No kidding. I’m making changes all over my house, not necessarily buying a thing mind you, but just doing some shuffling and moving and changing to remember that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.

This book is inspiring, lovely, and just what you’re gonna want to read as the spring really kicks in. Also? This is THE PERFECT Mother’s Day gift. So grab one for yourself and grab another for your mama.

Go With The Flow by Brad Huebert

I’m not great at having my quiet times. Forgive me.

For as long as I’ve been a Christian, I’ve gone back and forth from being good at quiet times to being bad at them to feeling guilty and looping back to being good at them again. Woof. It’s frustrating.

But as I read Go With The Flow, I began to have a better understanding of how to connect with God daily, without guilt, but in a genuinely Annie way. Using the temple/tabernacle from the Bible as an outline, Brad walks you through how to connect in your own way with the Lord.

Again, it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful, huh?

This is a pretty quick read (and pretty cheap!) that you can get it in paperback or on your kindle. I got the ebook and really enjoyed reading it as I was traveling around the last few weeks.

. . . . .

I hope you’ll snatch up these good reads to add to your shelf, coffee table, or e-reader.

Speaking of good reads, have we connected at GoodReads.com yet? I’m pretty much having a blast building book shelves – like this one with my favorite teen reads– and seeing what my friends are reading and wanting to read.

Also, just a reminder, you can still download two free chapters of my next book Let’s All Be Brave from NoiseTrade. Also, you can go ahead and pre-order that puppy if you want.
