Christian Books I Highly Recommend

Uninvited

Lysa TerKeurst’s book changed my life, I’m not kidding. I have read this book several times and have gifted it to my loved ones. Uninvited helped me establish my identity in Christ, and healed past hurts from rejection and loneliness. I picked this book up when I was feeling lonely and lost, and it helped to heal some of deepest wounds!

Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart - how to know for sure you are saved

I’m not going to lie to you, the title of this book almost made me steer clear of it, and made me question why it was in the “Christian” section at the book store. And then the description “How to know for sure you are saved” grabbed my attention. My whole life I questioned my salvation. Always full of doubt, always seeking reassurance, I can’t tell you how many times I prayed the prayer asking Jesus into my heart just to make sure that I did it right. I hated that I was like that, and grew to resent revivals or when preachers would invite you to the alter, because I would be so scared. I would go up every time afraid that if I didn’t, I wouldn’t get into Heaven and Jesus would say those words “depart from me, I never knew you.” Those words would scare me to the point of tears. And there was no reason for it, preachers prayed with me, everyone reassured me that if I asked Jesus into my heart and believed it and meant it, that I was saved, and that nothing could pluck me out of His hand. I knew I meant it and believed it every single time I prayed it. There was nothing I wanted more than to be saved, but Satan kept filling me with such doubt that I was afraid I would never get peace. If sounds like you, please pick up this book! You will not regret it. Reading this book I knew that without a doubt I was saved, and that I was going to Heaven. I have never had to pray the salvation pray again out of fear, and I now I love revivals because I know where I belong and I know where I’m going!

Begin Again

Ever feel like you’re just going through the motions? That is exactly how I was feeling when I picked up this book. The idea of beginning again seemed so foreign to me. How do I just begin my life again? I can’t pack up and start a new one. I can’t change anything in my life, my school, my work, my home. So do I begin again if everything in my life has to stay the same. This books helped me do that. This books helped me do that. Whenever I’m feeling stuck, or like the world is moving around me and I’m not moving at all, I always pick up this book.

Made for this moment

I love this book and admire this author so much. Madison Prewitt gives her advice on how she stands up for her faith in the world we live in today, as well as overcoming her insecurities, questioning God’s timing and trusting Him, forgiving ourselves as well as others who have hurt us, answering his call even though it may not make sense, and her tips for setting a routine and making time for God each day! Whether you’re single, or in a relationship, thriving or struggling, whatever your relationship with God is like, and wherever you are in your life right now! Read this book!

A place called Heaven

Ever wonder what Heaven will be like? This book by Dr. Robert Jeffress, a pastor in Dallas Texas, was gifted to me by my grandmother. Based entirely on Scripture Dr Jeffress answers questions you may have about Heaven, and what it will be like when we get there. This book truly gets you excited for the day that we stand face to face with Jesus and see the place He has prepared for us!

Live

Are you really living? You know you’re alive, but are you truly living? Going through the motions, life passing us by, everyday feeling like you’re living the same day all over again. This book and the aforementioned Begin Again go really well together. Live teaches us to stop living and start thriving! It’s also packed full of other helpful tips, that are relatable to what so many of us face in our lives. Sadie’s book reads so much like having a conversation with your best friend. It’s also a book that you can pick up and read completely random chapters at anytime, and feel refreshed and encouraged. I

Breathing Room

Another winner from Leanna Tankersley (author of aforementioned Begin Again) This book is all about giving yourself grace. Always striving for perfection, carrying around past mistakes, feeling like you just need to breathe. This book is perfect for that. Inhale, but don’t forget exhale. It’s easy to feel worn out from everything in our lives, striving to make others happy, but also needing to just relax. If you feel pent up, and strung out, read this book and allow yourself some much needed time to catch your breath.

It’s not Supposed to be this way

Author of the aforementioned Uninvited, Lysa TerKeurst has done it again. I was feeling lost in my life. Things hadn’t gone as I planned for my future career and I was feeling so behind in my life compared to everyone around me. I felt so frustrated with God’s plans for my life, because I thought the plans I had when I left high school were so much better. Instead I’m not anywhere where I thought I would be. This book helped me better trust in God’s timing and find peace with the direction of my life.
