Looking for some great book ideas? How ’bout a stocking stuffer, a Daily Bible for the New Year, or a fresh devotional?
Here are my top 11 picks!
1. Daily Bible
For years, The One Year Bible , has helped me read through the entire Bible in a year… in as little as 15 minutes a day. With the New Living Translation, you’ll get easy to understand daily readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. Grab this and I guarantee it will become a beloved friend to you this year!
If you don’t already have my 40-day devotional, I’d love for you to use the Amazon coupon to grab it :) You can get it for just over $6 with the coupon.
Part memoir and part spiritual guide, Trust Without Borders gently weaves biblical truth with life’s everyday situations, from dishes and laundry to helping a needy stranger on a crowded subway. Let this daily devotional do for you what is has for countless others: bring healing to your heart and eyesight to see God at work in your life.
Or slip a copy in a stocking this year?
The other print book I’ve written is with my friend Amanda Criss.
Our inheritance in Christ Jesus is often un-tapped and under utilized. We frequently go through our days without drawing from the wealth available to us in Christ. This prayer journal provides a practical, systematic way to intentionally partake of your inheritance. By daily affirming the promises of God related to the Person, work, and provision of Christ Jesus, you will feast on the manna of Christ Himself. A print copy of this will allow for journaling!
Each year I choose a devotional for my kids. This year I’ll be giving my girls the Adored devotional as one of their 3 Christmas gifts. I love this devotional because it starts by looking at the character and attributes of God. Until we understand His greatness, we can’t truly value our own God-given identity. An extra bonus is the daily entries are short with space for note taking. You’ll want this one in print to gift to the young woman in your life.
If you are looking for an Advent devotional, check out my friend Asheritah’s Unwrapping the Names of Jesus. This devotional book includes four weeks of writings that includes a weekly interactive family devotional, daily reflections, and suggested activities or service projects. I have this devotional and it is just as beautiful inside as it is out! Definitely one you want in print.
My family and I have done Whole 30 twice and I absolutely love eating this way. However, it isn’t always practical for our nutty lifestyle so I recently purchased this cookbook. I wanted the best of real food + fast + delicious.
I was not disappointed! I loved this cookbook so much, I went back and also bought the first one too. If you want an easy way to cook healthier without spending all day in the kitchen, I highly recommend both 100 Days of Real Food. And of course you need them in print to lay open on your counter!
Ever since I discovered Grace Goals, I’ve become a bit of a goal-setting freak. In Your Best Year Ever, Michael Hyatt shares a powerful, proven, research-driven system for setting and achieving goals. I’m planning on going through his new book (you can pre-order now!) in January and sharing my takeaways with our 2018 Grace Goals participants.
Speaking of goals, ever wondered what makes some people extraordinary? While this book is not written from a Christian perspective, it does offer practical and biblical advice! The author says that to become a high performer, you must seek clarity, generate energy, raise necessity, increase productivity, develop influence, and demonstrate courage. His findings confirm what we see in many biblical examples such as David, Solomon, Joseph, and Daniel. A very interesting read!
How do we walk closely with God without caving to pressure in an ever hostile culture? How do we live uncompromising without alienating those who wish to reach? Chris Hodges examines the life of the prophet Daniel, who persevered in a corrupt culture that closely resembles our own—and emerged as an influential force in God’s redemptive plan.
Full of scripture and seasoned with Hodges’ candid personal insights, The Daniel Dilemma shows us that we can hold firmly to biblical beliefs without becoming obnoxious, insulting, or mad. This book is on my to-read list!
The message of this children’s book is dead on for kids and adults alike. After the difficult year Lysa Terkeurst has had (marriage trials and recent breast cancer diagnostics and double mastectomy), this story of a seed planted in the dark is even more precious. This book is a great choice if you’re looking for a chance to gather a little one or two into your lap and impart important truths to.
Longing to slow down and savor this holiday season? This 20 day devotional + Bible study combo by two of my favorite writers will help you do just that.
At times, we face a pivotal, single choice that will forever change our trajectory. We also experience the steady culmination of years of daily decisions. How can we be confident we will choose well? How can we be certain that we will possess the endurance required? How can we too become women who respond to God with an unshakable “Yes!” This interactive devotional and Bible study will help you cultivate a confident and steadfast resolve, even in the face of trials.
