“Loving Our Kids On Purpose” by Danny Silk.  Need a fresh perspective on parenting?  This is it!  Learn to give your children the love, respect, and grace that God gives His children.

The Jesus Storybook BibleThe Jesus Storybook Bible” by Sally Lloyd-Jones. Every single story in this children’s bible breathes the truth and hope of Jesus our Saviour. Every. Single. Story.  I have never been so captivated by a children’s book.  My kids have never been so excited to read a book.  Every. Single. Night.  And the illustrations are wonderful! unglued

“Unglued” by Lysa Terkeurst.  Get ready to get brutally honest with yourself.  Get ready to be convicted.  Get ready to call yourself out, and be reminded daily. Get ready to find peace.  This book has caused some dramatic change in my life.


“One Thousand Gifts” by Ann Voskamp.  We could all stop to smell the roses in this fast-paced rat race we live in.  Some of us are just barely surviving.  Ann speaks of her journey so poetically and challenges you to be thankful for everyday small things, realizing how great a gift those small things are…when you stop to receive them.

Fit To Be Tied “Fit to Be Tied” by Bill and Lynn Hybels.  We read this book before we got married.  THANK GOD!  There were so many little things we faced in our first year of marriage that Bill and Lynne described in this book.  Instead of letting the little things rip us apart, we embraced our differences (at times, with extra grace required).  Every couple should be equipped with the tools this book offers whether you’re about to be married, or you think you’re a seasoned pro!   5-love-languages “The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman.  Read this!  You won’t regret it!  And then go here and take the test to see what your primary love language is, and ask your partner to take the test too! Just like you can’t drive with an empty gas tank, you can’t love from an empty love tank.
