Today we are sharing our first post from our Summer Reading Series that I mentioned last week. Summer is the time to slow down, grab a good book, savor good words, drink something yummy, linger, and just be. I love the time we get to refresh our souls a bit!
I wanted to share one of my favorite authors for my first post because she was pivotal to me as I began my walk as a Christian. I loved her style of writing (like she was talking to you personally as a friend) and her teaching of the Bible and biblical womanhood was clear and encouraging. Elizabeth George has been a favorite that I like to recommend to women for some time! I hope you enjoy her too!
Remember that if you prefer to read on your phone, tablet, or computer, these books are also available in Kindle for easy on-the-go reading. I tend to like to take advantage of both. I sometimes like to stay up late reading and it helps that when my husband is sleeping I can still read on my phone and not bother him.
So let's begin!
5 BOOKS FROM ELIZABETH GEORGE
1. A WOMAN'S HIGH CALLING
This is one my favorite all time books from her--nice and meaty with lots of straight talk.
"In A Woman’s High Calling, she helps readers to eliminate the clutter and chaos of everyday life and focus on the few things God considers truly essential. And they’re spelled out in Titus 2:3-5, where God shines the spotlight on…
wholesome speech personal discipline
love of husband goodness of heart
love of children Christlike conduct
ministry to other women love of home
There’s no higher calling for women than making God's priorities their own. Readers will be eager to simplify their lives, adopt God's essentials, and pass them on by mentoring other women. With the now-included study guide, they’ll realize immediate results."
You can find the study guide here if you are interested in dong it on your own or with other women.
2. A WOMAN AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART
When I firs got saved this God led me to this book and it helped me so much in mapping the way to growing in Biblical womanhood.
"Experience real peace and joy as you follow God in every area of your life--and become a woman after His heart. With warmth and grace, Elizabeth George shares practical, scriptural insights on how you can pursue God's priorities when it comes to...

- your walk with the Lord--grow through love of Scripture and in spiritual maturity

Let God fulfill His greatest desire for you. Allow Him to transform you by embracing His plans for you. And find real purpose in a life of prayer, a life of priorities, a life as A Woman After God's Own Heart."
