My Favorite Books for Christian Women

1. The Well-Watered Woman: Rooted in Truth, Growing in Grace, Flourishing in Faith” by Gretchen Saffles

First up is “The Well-Watered Woman,” a soul-nourishing book that explores the journey of finding true satisfaction in God. This book reads like a quiet conversation with a dear friend. Using Scripture and her own personal story of surrender, Gretchen offers spiritually hungry women tangible tools to not only know Jesus more but to live a life that thoroughly enjoys Him, seeks Him, and follows Him into freedom.



2. “Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul” by John and Stasi Eldredge

In “Captivating,” John and Stasi Eldredge dive deep into the heart of a woman’s desires, dreams, and even her wounds. This book explores the connection between our feminine souls and our faith. It’s a breathtaking journey of hope, healing, and encouragement.



3. “The Hiding Place” by Corrie Ten Boom

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” These words from Corrie ten Boom resonate with me in her gripping memoir, “The Hiding Place.” Corrie and her family’s brave efforts to shelter Jews during World War II and their subsequent imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps inspire us with lessons in faith, forgiveness, and resilience.



4. “Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely” by Lysa TerKeurst

Lysa TerKeurst’s “Uninvited” is like a warm hug for the soul. It speaks to that universal struggle we all face: rejection, loneliness, and insecurity. With personal stories and biblical wisdom, Lysa helps us on a journey to live loved and find our identity in Christ.



5. “Discerning the Voice of God: How to Recognize When God Speaks” by Priscilla Shirer

6. “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren

While it’s not exclusively for women, “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren has touched countless lives. It’s a forty-day spiritual journey designed to help you discover your life’s purpose and draw closer to God.



7. “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis’s “Mere Christianity” is like having a deep conversation with your favorite professor. It delves into the profound questions of faith, morality, and the nature of God. This classic work is a thought-provoking read for anyone new to the Christian faith, or those in the process of deepening their faith.



8. “One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are” by Ann Voskamp

Ann Voskamp’s “One Thousand Gifts” is poetry for the soul. Her beautiful words inspire us to see the grace and beauty in everyday life through gratitude. It’s a reminder of how to cultivate thankfulness and experience God’s presence in daily challenges.



9. “Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer” by Priscilla Shirer

In “Fervent,” Priscilla Shirer equips us with powerful tools to address specific areas of our lives through prayer. It’s like having a prayer warrior’s handbook, guiding us to become spiritual warriors in our daily battles.



10. “Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy” by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

“Choosing Gratitude” by Nancy Leigh DeMoss is like a gentle embrace for the heart. Nancy’s exploration of the transformative power of gratitude helps us draw closer to God’s joy and purpose. It’s a reminder that we can always find reasons to be thankful.
