  1. The Meaning of Marriage

2. Fervent


Fervent: A Woman's Battle Plan for Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer

By Priscilla Shirer / B&H Books

Satan isn't your enemy in an impersonal way; he specifically wants to destroy you! In her book, Fervent, author Priscilla Shirer brings her recent debut role in War Room into the lives of real women to show them how to renew their passion, refocus their identity, deal with regrets, defeat temptation, weather fears, and uproot bitterness. Fervent is a woman's battle plan for serious, specific, and strategic prayer.

If you are desiring a deeper prayer life then you absolutely need to grab this. It taught me so much about divinginto prayer and what parts of my life could be prayed for.

3. Mere Christianity


Mere Christianity - Slightly Imperfect

If you have grown up in faith and ever wondered…WHY you believe what you believe? Read this one. If you want to go deeper than just “I know there is a God”, C.S. Lewis will take you on a JOURNEY.

6. Love Does


Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World - Slightly Imperfect

Today’s Christianity is often focused on practices and checked boxes. Bob Goff reminds us to be the hands and feet of jesus at all times. Let this book inspire you and propel you into a deeper love for His people.

7. Love Skip Jump

Fearful of taking risks or chances? Let Shelene challenge you to go for it. Her courage and honesty are absolutely remarkable. This real life every day woman is doing extraordinary things and you cant help but want to join her.

8. Twenty- Two


Twenty-Two: Letters to a Young Woman Searching for Meaning

Allie gives us the advice, encouragement and friendship we always craved in this read. I went out and bought a new dress to so I could have a physical representation about how this book made me feel: ALIVE.

9.  Boundaries


Boundaries, Softcover

By Dr. Henry Cloud / Zondervan


I don’t even have words for this one. This book has changed how I do every single relationship: platonic and romantic. I was empowered to say no, to say yes and to choose God’s best for me. This book is my absolute favorite.
