Recommendations for books that will deepen our desire to know God and love His word

Women Authors

These are a few of my favorite Christian women authors. I will add more as times goes on.

Sharon W. Betters
& Susan Hunt

Becoming Elisabeth Elliot

Whatever season of life you’re in, God has equipped you to flourish―to live in the transforming power and beauty of his grace. As we age, we can easily lose sight of this message as cultural ideals glorifying youth take center stage.

I just finished reading this book. Highly recommend it. If you are not an “older woman” now, you will be at some point. This book will help you prepare for those years and instruct you on how to keep the “culture” at bay. As long as we are breathing we are useful in God’s plan.

Becoming Elisabeth Elliot by Ellen Vaughn

Becoming Elisabeth Elliot

The timing of this book could not be better. We may not know it, but in an age of antiheros, our soul craves an authentic witness. We want to see someone in whom living for Christ. A story that rises above the average.

This is a fascinating book that has caused me to evaluate my own spiritual life. Highly recommend it!

  • It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way

I have read many of Lysa’s books and this is my favorite so far. It is so fitting for all we are going through this year. This book is for EVERYONE. Makes you think and comforts at the same time.

  • Embraced (wonderful and beautiful devotions)
  • Uninvited
  • Unglued
  • The Best Yes

It's not supposed to be this way by Lysa TerKeurst

Nancy Leigh DeMoss Wolgemuth

Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free (updated this year)
In my opinion one of the best books ever written for women. It is biblical, convicting, thought provoking, encouraging and full of hope, and gives His Truth to the lies Satan likes to use. 

Fabulous for our teen to college girls. It addresses many of the lies the culture is pouring into our young women and counters it with the Word of God. 

Adorned (written by Nancy and her husband)

Highly recommend this book. New out in 2019.

  • Secure in the Everlasting Arms

This is a very personal insightful book that I found I didn’t know I needed, but has caused me to slow down and think, pray, and reach out. Very good read!
