Last month I shared the books that I would be reading over the summer and I made the bold proclamation that I would be reading books that I could hold in my hand as I put my Kindle down for a season. But the truth is that a good book is a good book regardless of the form it comes in, whether that be traditional print or through an electronic device.
While there are many wonderful books that are on the best seller’s list, there are also MANY wonderful eBooks from author’s who have a much smaller audiences but none the less they are fantastic books that you should be reading, if you haven’t read already!
Today I wanted to share with you 8 eBooks from 8 fantastic ladies, all of which have blogs that I read on a pretty consistent basis. While you may know some of the author’s perhaps there is a hidden gem in here that you have yet to discover.

I love this simple reminder to love the home you have, not to waste time wishing your home was different. This simple and short eBook is filled with so much wisdom and encouragement, as well as practical ways to embrace your current home the way it is, not the way you wish it where.
Need to be spending more time with God and His Word? Jane walks you through 21 dates to do just that. This short devotional will remind you why you should be meeting with God daily and how to remove the feeling of you should to I can’t wait to.

I am a stay at home mom who is moving into a more of a work at home role as I continue to cast a vision and dream big of where I want to take this blog. Anne does a fantastic job of highlighting several busy moms who are SAHMS, WAHMS and even moms who work outside of the home for a part of their day. They are moms who also homeschool or send their kids to traditional school, but the message that Anne conveys is that it is possible to be an active, involved mom while still pursuing to work for a part of your days.
This was a breathe of fresh air as I read it in one sitting. Lori does a beautiful job of reminiscing about the summers of the past and how to strive for intention today as you seek to enjoy the days with your family and create new memories. The message is clear; slow down, simplify and enjoy today.
This one is actually on my Kindle now as I have been in a season of reflection and thinking about what lies ahead. Ashley’s subtitle is what initially captured my attention: “Searching for meaning when life is on hold.” Sometimes God puts roadblocks into our plans causing us to wait but instead of using that time to be anxious, doubtful or fearful, use that time to seek out God’s will and learn the value in being patient.
You know I love having a plan and a routine right? Leigh Ann uses this little eBook to guide you to seek Him as you go about the work of drafting goals and planning your days. Complete with printables to help you think through some tough questions to be realistic about where you are in your walk with God, this guide book is everything you need to create a plan and routine.
Similar to Leigh Ann’s book above, Erin walks you through the process of why you need a personal retreat, how to plan one and what to do once you are on one. For me in this season, a personal retreat is just a morning alone at a nearby coffee shop for an hour or two as I review and reflect my mission and purpose and to create a plan. In this eBook Erin provides so many practical ways to make a personal planning retreat happen on any budget, as well as printables and worksheets to use as you create a plan.
This is another eBook that I currently have downloaded on my Kindle. As a mom of a little boy sometimes I am astonished at the things that come out of his month or the actions that he does. Boys are different and I am learning how to love and embrace the characteristics and qualities God placed in my son to make him uniquely different. From one young mother of a little boy to another, Jennifer uses her story to help paint the picture of who God has created our sons to be.
So what hidden gems do you recommend in the terms of free or budget friendly eBooks that we should be reading?
