One of the things I love to do is read good, wholesome literature which inspires me. As a Housewife, I am mostly encouraged by old stories of home life for mothers and wives. Elizabeth Prentiss is one of my favorite authors. Her book, "Aunt Jane's Hero" shows the beauty of a humble, simple Christian marriage. It is her best book!
Another author I like is someone I only recently discovered, even though she wrote her books in the early 1900's. These are Christian fiction and are written by Grace Livingston Hill.
It is easier to find affordable, inspiring books when they are discounted, or when you can get them used for a very low price.
The most important theme in the books I like is that they lead me to heavenly ideals and inspire a noble virtue in daily living. They lead one to the Lord and to His precious ways!
In thinking about literature that is currently available, I have been searching Amazon. They used to discount the books for sale. My own books are offered there and used to be reduced to a more affordable price. It surprised me to realize they are no longer cutting prices. I was able to put in a request on each book to get them drastically reduced in price. The only book I can't seem to get low enough is "For The Love of Christian Homemaking." But I will keep trying!
If you have been wanting one of these books, such as "Living on His Income" (which is now listed at $4.29), or one of the other books, I hope you will find them much more affordable.
For a direct link to all my books listed at Amazon, here is the link:

As Mother's Day is soon approaching, I hope you are able to find some special literature to cheer you on in your mothering!
For those who have been wondering how I am doing, I am feeling much better. Nice weather has come to us here in rural Vermont. Mister and I sat on the front porch early one evening and enjoyed a rest while looking over the landscape. It is a beautiful time of year!
