I would be mistaken if I did not acknowledge the MANY great authors, speakers and books which have influenced my development as a leader, mom, wife and friend.  Along with life experience, these books have fueled my passion to raise kids with leadership qualities and be a more effective wife and mom.  Please note that this page contains affiliate links*, although I did PERSONALLY select each resource listed.  These resources have each made a difference in my life and I genuinely recommend that you explore them too!
