One of my favorite books that has been incredibly encouraging to me as a wife and mom is Boundaries. Written by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend way back in 1992, it has been revised and become part of a series with other books added through the years. This series replete with Biblical principles has impacted my parenting, and when my children started to approach their teen years, I eagerly picked up another Boundaries book Boundaries for Teens. There is very practical and applicable information that has helped me to navigate proper boundaries and still show love to my family. As an only child dealing with conflict is definitely one of my weaknesses. Because of this, I have a tendency to avoid conflict at all costs. This is perilous as a mother! This series assisted me in moving through all the new relationships and the changes in seasons as we went from toddler years and adolescence.
