1. My Utmost for His Highest: Updated Edition by Oswald Chambers
The version pictured above contains updated language edited by James Reimann. This devotional holds timeless truths as preached and taught by the author.  Each reading takes a few moments yet holds thoughts of depth. The methods used by Mr. Chambers to simplify difficult concepts attracts even modern readers.

2. Praying God’s Word: Devotional Journal by Beth Moore
This book is such a wonderful guide to praying Scripture back to God. One of my favorites on the 5 Awesome Books on Prayer list, this devotional journal is perfect to accompany a daily focused journey of prayer. I love the way this journal takes everyday issues and teaches us how to pray God’s Word straight over them.

3. Grace For The Moment by Max Lucado
Max and I have never met, but we sure do get along well! For clear and beautiful reading that is heartfelt and honest, this devotional provides 365 days worth of wonderful devotions. My 8 yr old is currently reading the kids’ version of this devotional and the very cool thing about that is we can discuss the day’s devo together.

4. Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Devotional is well-loved and well-read daily by thousands of women worldwide. Each day begins with a verse and contains a few words of wisdom for the day.  If you’re not a frequent online reader, you can also have the daily devotion sent to your email inbox by subscribing here.

Also a beautiful resource from Proverbs 31 ministries, the newly-released NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women: Insights for Everyday Life contains 365 daily devotions that will give you reassurance that you are not alone in your Christian journey. (AND the Kindle version of this Bible is available for only $1.99 as of this writing! Just downloaded it- what a FAB price!)

5. Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young
This devotional stands as my favorite of 365-day devotionals. I’ve read this daily for the last three years and never tire of the beautiful way this book reaches my heart. The kids’ version speaks to little hearts just as beautifully. I really want to purchase the beautiful NEW Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young but I haven’t done it because I’m currently on book overload. 😉

6. Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress
The perfect followup for the Unglued Bible study or a great refresher of the incredible concepts Lysa teaches in the Unglued book. I recently received this 60 day devotional as a gift and I definitely plan to pass on the goodness to others.

So that’s the list for now.

Do you have a favorite devotional? I’d love to read about it in the comments!

    My favorite is My Utmost for His Highest. I also like the Proverbs 31 daily devotional email. Thanks Rachel! Have a very blessed day!

  2. I am absolutely inspired and smile every time I read Ann Voskamp’s 1000 Gifts devotional. I read the book years ago, and I gave my copy away. I was going through a rough patch of stress in mommy-hood, and my sweet sister in law sent me a new copy of Ann’s Book 1000 Gifts AND her Devotional book to accompany it. I really like them both because Ann speaks so deeply from her heart about GOD’s heart for us.

  3. I have recently in love with Ann Voskamp’s “one thousand gifts”. Beautiful book written with such raw emotions. My current second favorite is “Unglued”. That book was written just for me!

    1. love both of those books- wondering if there is a One Thousand gifts devotional? Hmmm. must look for that. 🙂
