books to read fall

It’s time to chat it up about all the good books to read this fall!! As you may know, I’m a book lover and even though I’ve been focused primarily on writing my book to be released next fall, I’ve kept my eye on the reading side of things. Since the middle of July, I’ve truly concentrated on writing. This first book I want to mention; however, is the one I managed to read on flights and sneak in a few minutes here and there at the pool or park with the kids. It’s the only one on this list that I’ve already read. And it is:

The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands
Making Wise Decisions in the midst of Endless Demands? I’ve got the endless demands side down, but the wise decisions part? Yep, sure could use a little assistance. I’m a huge Lysa Terkeurst fan and have loved her previous New York Times bestsellers, Made to Crave and Unglued. The Best Yes is my favorite book from this author. If learning the power of when to use the two little words “yes” and “no” is something you’re interested in, then this is the book for you.

Eight Twenty Eight: When Love Didn’t Give Up
The popular Youtube video of this book’s authors is one I’ve watched a few times. Their story of love in the midst of suffering is unbelievably beautiful. I’m looking forward to reading their full perspective on loving through unexpected heartache and persisting through very tough circumstances, especially since these topics are close to my heart.

The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You
I saw this book recommendation by MoneySavingMom and I’m always interested in time management books. As mom to 7 and woman of many hats, sometimes time for myself gets lost in the shuffle. There are seasons of sacrifice I’ve gone through in order to meet a goal, but it’s easy to let the sacrificial season transform into a lifelong habit. I’m looking forward to reading this book.

Kingdom Woman: Embracing Your Purpose, Power, and Possibilities

I met Chrystal Evans Hurst this summer at She Speaks Conference and I appreciated her beautiful balance of spiritual and practical wisdom. This book reminds women of their calling and encourages remembering who we are in Christ. I’m looking forward to the encouragement and empowerment I’m expecting to find in this book.

What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days: 52 Encouraging Truths to Hold On To

This devotional looks just perfect for chilly fall mornings and I can’t wait to dive in. I’m often asked for devotional recommendations for women and I’m anticipating that this is going to be one that I can recommend.

So what are you reading? I’d really love to know!

Have a fantastic Friday!

  1. All of those books sound fun! I just got my hands on “Becoming Myself” by Stasi Eldredge and I can’t get enough of it. Just skimming through the first few pages in Barnes & Noble had me blubbering and thanking Jesus for who He is. I didn’t think she could top “Captivating”, but it’s doing a real number on me in the best ways.

  2. One of my favorite reads lately is by Gloria Furman Treasuring Christ When Your Hamds Are Full. It is a small, quick read but full of blessings for a busy mamas soul!

  3. I’ve been reading Year of Plenty by Craig Goodwin which is a wonderful book for this harvest season. 🙂 It’s about a family who tries to spend one year only consuming/eating products that are local, homemade, used, or homegrown. It really deals with the intersections of Christianity, consumer culture, and environmentalism.

  4. I loved The Best Yes! I also had a chance to preview Holley Gerth’s devotional & really enjoyed it. I actually just gave it to a friend who is going through a hard time. She told me just last night she was really enjoying it. Will be putting Fringe & Kingdom Woman on my reading list. Thanks!

  5. I will be reading “The Best Yes” this Fall. Cannot wait. I’m in the middle of Christine Caine’s “Unstoppable.” It is as good as “Undaunted,” her first book.

  6. A great round-up of books, I’m especially interested in the fringe hours book you listed. And the one by Chrystal Evans Hurst seems right down my street.

    Ironically, I don’t have much time to read anything but my Bible these days and O I forgot the x amount of cookery books stored in my kitchen.

    I used to read a lot for pleasure, but I find that reading just actually gets me excited to do everything I’ve just read about lol so right now, I’m just focusing on doing the things in front og me before I dive into another wisdom packed book.


  7. My Top Five for Fall! :O)
    Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food by Lysa TerKeurst
    Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon
    Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Won’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain
    UnStoppable by Christine Caine
    Discipline that Connects with Your Child’s Heart by Jim and Lynne Jackson

    1. ohh- I forgot about Christine Caine!! I’ve not read any of her books yet. Hearing her speak was a highlight of my summer!
