*Bookmarks is an online book club hosted at Creative2xmom. Here we discuss the books we've read in the past month as well as the suggested reading. Our suggested reading for July was Rising Strong by Brene Brown.

These are the books I read this month:

Homeschooling: Take a Deep Breath, You Can Do This! by Terrie Lynn Bitner--  I've been on a mission to read more "homeschoooling books" over the summer and this was the next one on the list. Although I've been homeschooling for four years already, there are many days I feel like a newbie.  And I believe that no matter how long you've been at it, there's still plenty to learn.  I found that this book was a great place for someone to start as well as a fantastic refresher for the rest of us.  I actually took a lot away from this book.  There's a lot of meaty content in this book and it's incredibly uplifting and encouraging.

Give Your Child the World by Jamie C. Martin--See my review here.

What We Read with the Kids:

Paddington Takes the Test by Michael Bond--  We love Paddington in our house.  He's so funny and always taking on new adventures.  And this one was no exception.  We love Paddington!

Our suggested reading for July was Rising Strong by Brene Brown--  this book shook my world.  It was very deep and required a lot of time to process Brown's point.  But it was a great reminder to be resilient.  It's important to keep getting up, especially when life is most desperate to keep you down.  I can't tell you how life changing it really is.  Read it!

So what are your bookmarks this month?

Tell us in the comments about the books you're chewing on. Or link up a review from your own blog. Let's share the books we're finding, good and bad. And give us your thoughts on Rising Strong by Brene Brown.

And come back August 26th as we discuss  Love and War by John & Stasi Eldredge.
