Favorite Books for Personal Growth

Updated: Jan 26, 2020

Winter can seem especially long and tiresome for those who despise the cold and snow. Here in the Midwest, if it’s not the cold, it’s the snow that will keep us indoors. On days such as those, one of our favorite pastimes is to get cozy with a good book. Sounds easy enough, right? However, choosing a book worth your time can be daunting. Between the various best-sellers lists and Google search, it’s short of a headache trying to choose a good book…and yet here we are throwing you another list 😊. However, our list is targeted—inspirational books for personal growth—and is based on the fact that we’ve read every one of these and have not found them wanting. Needless to say, this is not a wish list of books we want to read but a list of books we’ve found meaningful. We are of the mindset that there's always room for improvement. Feed your mind and soul. Believe us, it's worth the investment 😊.

We hope you will enjoy these books as much as we have! Happy reading!
