Inspiring Books I Read Over the Holidays

For most of us, the holidays are starting to seem like a distant memory! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun….I took it really easy over the holidays and spent most of my time lounging/ lifeguarding by the pool while the kids basically lived in it. This gave me lots of time to read some inspiring books!

I chose my holiday reading stack really well!
