Paging the month of June. Where did you go? Does anyone know? I’ve been wanting to read more than I have been lately, but wow, has the time been eaten up. Regardless, I’m determined to get a little reading in, no matter the method. And today, I’m sharing 5 Christian books to read this summer before it is over. Here we go, in no particular order:
1. The Unburdened Heart: Finding the Freedom of Forgiveness
This book has 28 5-star ratings on Amazon and for the last year, the Lord has been reiterating a message to me on forgiving others. When I read over the reviews for this book, my impression was that every single person who read the book truly gleaned practical lessons to put into real life practice.
2. Prayers for a Woman’s Soul I pinned this book a few months ago and I really want to read this one. From reading the summary description, the point of the book seems to be remembering to pray for yourself. This book may be for a unique audience, in that many of us are so focused on praying for our own needs that we fail to pray for others. The author of “Prayers for A Woman’s Soul” understands that there are women who spend so much time praying for others that we forget to pray for ourselves. Honestly, I fall in this category often since I make it a point to pray for everyone else, but sometimes I forget that God wants to hear my needs and desires also.
3. Glimpses of Grace: Treasuring the Gospel in Your Home My awesome friend, Kara, read this book and posted about it. After reading her post & review, I wanted to read this book desperately. And I haven’t accomplished that yet. But I’m going to. (Especially since I just told all of you that I’m going to.) Kara says: “It’s about looking for glimpses of grace in those everyday moments.” Oh how I love that. Because isn’t life just a ball of mixed up dirty dishes and laundry and more trash to take out? I so need Jesus during those times, because frankly, I get bored with dishes and laundry and trash. You?
4. Wife After God: Drawing Closer to God & Your Husband My fab friend, Jennifer Smith from Unveiled Wife, released a beautiful 30 day devotional for wives and I’m so excited that it arrived in the mail last week! Can’t wait to dig into it. I love how she introduces the book by saying that being a wife is a ministry role. Oh, that is so true and I often forget the honor that it is.
5. The Difference Maker: Making Your Attitude Your Greatest Asset Last week I instagrammed a pic of my toddler. Wow does she ever know how to spark an attitude! Then that parental mirror flips and I see myself. Yikes- how my attitude can flip and flop like the worst summer shoes you’ve ever worn. John Maxwell’s leadership books have always inspired me to push beyond myself and I’m sure this one will be no different.
Alright, Friends. That’s it for today. But I must know:
