I’ve read some really good stuff lately! Here are my recommendations of what to read by the poolside, under your beach umbrella, or snuggled up inside with the AC.
All of these are enjoyable and Christ-affirming.
Spoken Moments | Grace Publishing, compiled by Yvonne Lehman
This is a fantastic collection. Mostly every story will leave you saying, “Wow!” It’s a short pick-me-up like Chicken Soup for the Soul, but more faith-filled. Also try Divine Moments and Precious, Precocious Moments.
Let God Be Present | Pastor Matt Brough
Have you ever cringed at the idea of “intimacy with God?” This book confronts that and addresses it. It’s like a meaty, three-part sermon–but the writing is easy and fun to read. It will help you look at Bible stories from fresh, new angles. You can also try Brough’s Let God Be God.
A Wife’s Secret to Happiness | Jen Weaver, Leafwood Publishers
Very real and practical. Has helped me become a better wife (I think)! Also, just for fun: Take Jen’s Wifestyle Quiz.
Hidden Legacy | Lynn Blackburn, Love Inspired Suspense
You’ll be hooked by the first sentence – unlike so many novels with a slow build-up! Great mystery and characters. This was my first Love Inspired Suspense book, and I’m hooked on this line of books now. You can also try Blackburn’s Covert Justice.
