The weather’s getting cooler and the days are getting shorter, which means I can finally give myself permission to snuggle up with a good book again! Here are some must-reads for Fall 2017…
Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God by Mark Batterson
I was borderline obsessed with The Circle Maker (if you don’t have it, get it), so I’ve been counting the days until Mark Batterson’s latest release, Whisper. It doesn’t hit the shelves until October but you’ll be so busy drinking pumpkin lattes, it’ll be here before you know it.
The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place by Andy Crouch
As a parent, the technology conversation (okay, lecture) is never more than a minute away. But rather than avoiding the blinking, beeping elephant in the room, this title will force you and your family to sit down and evaluate your choices in a healthy, helpful way.
God Secrets: A Life Filled with Words of Knowledge by Shawn Bolz
Who doesn’t love Shawn Bolz?? He can preach, write, and supernaturally download people’s Social Security numbers for crying out loud. If you’re interested in learning more about the prophetic, Shawn Bolz is the modern-day standard. Look out, Starbucks barista, I’ll be comin’ at ya with a word of knowledge.
The Perfect You: A Blueprint for Identity by Dr. Caroline Leaf
I’ll be honest, I adore personality tests and Dr. Caroline, so this book is the perfect combination. It even includes the Unique Qualitative (UQ) Assessment Tool, so you can discover the unique “you” God made you to be. Win!
A Family Shaped by Grace: How to Get Along with the People Who Matter Most by Gary Morland
How many times have we hollered in the backseat for the kids to stop fighting? Or begged everyone to just behave until the company leaves? Apparently, I’m not the only one and it made me feel a whole lot better. A beautiful story about family, grace, and how to create togetherness.
Business Boutique: A Woman’s Guide for Making Money Doing What She Loves by Christy Wright
I love this book. It’s practical, yet inspiring; realistic, yet motivational. It’s also from the Dave Ramsey camp and is chock full of business advice and financial strategies. Coming from someone who finds spreadsheets slightly overwhelming, this guide to business is a no-brainer.
Slow Kingdom Coming: Practices for Doing Justice, Loving Mercy and Walking Humbly in the World by Kent Annan
Let’s face it: God’s ways are not our ways and usually His ways take a lot longer. Kingdom work can be discouraging when it looks like you’re making no progress; this book offers hope and encouragement to keep fighting the good fight, no matter how long it takes.
