My Current Christian Reading List



 One of my favorite things to do at the end of the day is to curl up with a good book. Paul Sweeney once said, "You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you lost a friend." 
I couldn't agree more with that quote. I love the books that awaken new thoughts into your mind and leave you different than you were before you ever turned the first page. 
 So today I thought I would share with you guys the books that I have been loving these past few months.


1. Every Good Endeavor by Timothy Keller 
Every Good Endeavor is not only a monthly favorite, but one of my favorite books of all time. It's definitely a staple in my book collection now because of how it spoke into my life in so many ways. In this book, Keller speaks about work - how it came to be, our view of it, and how to align our every day work and careers with God's work. As someone who has always struggled with choosing what to do with my life when it comes to a career, this book has definitely helped me with my confusion and equipped me for my future! I highly recommend this one for High School or College students that are preparing for or starting their careers!






2. One Thousand Gifts Devotional by Ann Voskamp
I randomly picked up this devotional at a used bookstore a few months back, and I have been so surprised at the impact it has made in my life. This devotional focuses on giving thanks and finding joy in all aspects of life. Ann writes her devotions in such a way that sounds so poetic and beautiful, it would leave me in tears almost every time I closed the book. She also adds a section in the back with 1000 empty spaces to write down things you are grateful for every day. By doing this, she hopes that you will develop a heart of thankfulness that will result in joy and intimacy with God!



4. Rescuing Ambition - Dave Harvey 
In this book, Dave Harvey shares with us how to improve, produce, develop, and create for the glory of God and not for the glory of ourselves. This was such an eye opening book and really made me think about why I was doing the things I'm doing - for the glorifying of myself or for glorifying my God? This is a good book for someone who feels like they're in a rut and they want to get themselves back on track and back to creating a life that glorifies God. 







What books have you been loving lately? I'm always up for a good read! 



"When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul."
