Inspirational Books for Women

Some of my favorites, I highly recommend—

Alisa Childers, of Zoe Girl, does a fabulous job working through the Christian world view in her book, Another Gospel. The strong progressive influences which deconstructed her faith were the beginning God’s reconstruction.

Another Gospel is a great tool for apologetics. Every Christian shoud read this book and evaluate whether progressive views have infiltrated the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

I highly recommend this book!

Godmothers: Why You Need One and How to Be One by Lisa Bevere

My goddaughter gave me this book for Christmas and I’m forever grateful. Lisa Bevere encourages women of all ages to embrace their role as mentor and mentee at every age.

I was encouraged and challenged by Bevere’s transparency and example. This is a must-read for all women wondering how they might serve the Lord.

Great read. Thank you, Lisa Bevere!

Becoming: As Christ Is Formed in Us (Identity and Story) 

These two beautiful Bible studies can be done in a group or by yourself. Identity focuses on who God is and who he calls us (women) to be. Story looks at the story of the Bible and how we fit into God’s plan. Both come with workbooks for personal introspection. 

The Weight of Glory by C. S. Lewis

Ten addresses by C. S Lewis given during World War II are compiled in this thought-provoking book. I had to stop after each address to work through my questions and Lewis’ wonderful reasoning. “To please God…to be a real ingredient in the divine happiness…to be loved by God, not merely pitied, but delighted in as an artist delights in his work or a father in a son—it seems impossible, a weight or burden of glory which our thoughts can hardly sustain. But so, it is.”(The Weight of Glory, by C. S. Lewis, William Collins, 2013, p. 39.) 

Love Walked Among Us by Paul Miller 

Miller walks us through the gospels, showing us how Jesus moved toward people in love—seeing them, responding with compassion, and loving them in practical and supernatural ways. You’ll fall in love with Jesus all over again! 

Working from a Place of Rest by Tony Horsfall 

I am quick to accept most requests for ministry without truly listening to God. Rarely do I work from a place of rest. In this book, Horsfall looks at Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4) and shows us what it truly looks like to listen and obey God. 

Sacred Marriage: What if God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More Than to Make Us Happy? by Gary Thomas 

In this book, Gary Thomas altered my understanding of marriage. Our marriages are to reflect the relationship of Christ and his Church. Thomas identified common wrong attitudes in marriage which need to be redeemed by God’s word. Hard, but so good!
