Reading has really started to consume a lot of my time and I am not one bit mad about it. I love love love reading because it’s like sitting down for coffee with a reader and picking their brain on things I enjoy discussing. I crave deep conversations and these books have been so fulfilling in quenching the desire to dive deep and be vulnerable. I believe it’s so valuable to be able to hear other’s stories and their struggles. To learn how they felt broken, but how they managed to rise up and move forward. If you need a pile of pages to dive into..check these out!
Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst
Lysa shares moments of rejection, disappointment, and moments when she felt less than. She shares personal stories and weaves in related scripture. It’s a deep plunge into many emotions, but refreshingly honest on how to handle these feelings.
For the Love by Jen Hatmaker
If you have never heard of Jen Hatmaker or read any of her books you are truly missing out. She is seriously hilarious. She humors every day struggles and addresses the most humiliating moments of her life. It’s all about grace and loving well. I love this book so much and it will definitely be one I will continue to suggest to people.
The 5 Love languages by Gary Chapman
If you follow along with my blog I’ve mentioned this one a couple of times already. This is a great read for you individually, but also a perfect one to read with your spouse. It dives into all the different ways that people feel loved. For example, my love language is quality time so Ben now knows that I feel most loved when he spends quality time with me, not when he buys me a gift. It’s very beneficial to know your own but even more to know your spouse’s love language, because your conflicts could be an outreach of your spouse not feeling loved.
The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller
Ben and I read this book together and were so amazed by the amazing perspective Keller provides on marriage. The best read for sure.
