Grace in the FlamesGrace in the Flames is an amazing fictional story that will deepen your faith as you follow the characters through very tough situations. You may ask yourself if you would be able to go through the trials and the test of faith that they face. I know that God called me to completely give over certain areas of my life to Him after reading this book that I didn’t think I could before. It opens up your heart to trusting in the Lord no matter what and choosing to love Him even if…



Love & Respect (1)Love & Respect is a great book for married couples that will help you understand each other. As a woman, I need to feel loved and as a man, my husband needs to feel respected.

Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin

It’s important to study God’s Word, but sometimes we don’t know where to start. Jen Wilkin’s book Women of the Word shows us how to keep our focus when studying Scripture. It’s important to train our minds and go deeper in God’s Word so that our hearts can be transformed.



 Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is my favorite fiction book of all time. It’s a beautiful retelling of the story of Gomer and Hosea. Set in 1850, it follows the story of Angel, a young woman who is sold into prostitution as a child. Being used and abused by men, her hatred fuels her survival. Then she meets Michael Hosea, a man who loves God and seeks to do His will. He is called by God to marry Angel and love her unconditionally, and slowly she begins to open up. But with her feelings of unworthiness and fear, she is driven back into the darkness. Then the only One who can redeem her is the One who will never let her go. It’s a story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, and all-consuming love for us.
