Redeeming Love is a fictional book based on the book of Hosea in the Bible. I rarely read anything more than once and have read this three times. It's such a beautiful story of Christ's love for us. Perfect for book clubs with question and discussion section in the back. I talk a little about it in this post.
Lysa is also another favorite author of mine. Uninvited is one I will read again. As an introvert it's easy for me to feel left out, unwanted etc. etc. this book changed my perspective in such a good way!
A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 is a small yet very powerful book written by a shepherd reflecting on Psalm 23 will definitely change you and give you a whole new perspective on the way a Shepherd views and cares for His sheep.
Adorned is a remarkable book and takes a deep look at the second chapter of Titus in the Bible. I have to admit I couldn’t imagine an entire book about one chapter in the Bible, but I’m so glad I read this book. In fact, it’s a terrific one for a book club or small women’s group. I want to be the woman that is described in Titus 2 more than ever!
Love Does will change your life, make you laugh and challenge you to simply love others. Bob Goff is definitely someone you want to have walking along side you as you design your lifestyle of faith.
This book was a gift from a friend and I get it out all the time to look up the meaning of someone's name. It gives me a lot of insight to people...you'd be so surprised at how dead on the meaning of someone's name is to describe them! The Name Book should be one you've got handy all the time!
You’ve probably hear of Dr.’s Les & Leslie Parrott, they’re psychologists who write write a lot about marriage. This book about High Maintenance Relationships - How to Handle Impossible People can be a game changer for your marriage and all of your relationships. Maybe even help you understand yourself a little!
I’ve always loved quizzes and personality tests. It’s just how I’m wired. I’m a 6 by the way on the Ennegram…if you’ve ever heard of it. If not, check it out and see for yourself. The Road Back to You will also change the game for you in your relationships. Helping you to understand yourself and others better.
Every woman I know would benefit from Why Her? by Nicki Koziarz. We all struggle with feeling like we measure up. This is a must read!
In a word, wow! Glennon pulls no punches in Love Warrior and I love love love that! The most real authentic book I believe I've ever read! This is definitely not one for an uptight personality, just sayin'
Here's a list of books from Equipping Godly Women that are worth your time!
