Things I Love

 

On Social Media…

Risen Motherhood– Soaking motherhood (everything from potty training to Biblical literacy).  Check out their podcast too!

Well Watered Women– Challenging and equipping women to be in the Word.

Kelly Needham– All kinds of Jesus-centered stuff, but what I love most is her encouragement to be in the Word.  Also, her husband (Jimmy Needham) is one of my favorite music artists!

For reading…

Humble Roots by Hannah Anderson- I just recently finished this one.  If you’re feeling worn out, this one is for you.

Karen Kingsbury- Not a title, but an author.  I love most all of her books, but her Baxter family books are my favorite.  She’s my favorite to take to the beach (because being on the beach with a good book is definitely one of my favorite things).

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers- Probably my all time favorite book.  It’s a story of exactly what the title says, the redeeming love of Jesus.

Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin- This is such an awesome resource for how to study the Bible.  It’s an easy read, and I honestly believe it’s a must-read if you’re desiring to know how to dig deeper into God’s Word more.

Missional Motherhood by Gloria Furman- This book puts motherhood (and discipleship in general) in a beautiful theological framework.  I have literally read ZERO books when it comes to the practical aspects of motherhood, but this book I would recommend to any mamas-to-be or mamas.  It deals with the heart (which isn’t that so much more than the practical anyway?).

For grocery shopping…

Aldi- It’s SO cheap!  Literally, I can get groceries for about half the price of what I would at another store.

Target- For so many reasons, of course.  But practically, I love their diapers, and that I can get them delivered to my doorstep (thanks Red card for the 5% off and free shipping!).

For my kids…

The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones- This Bible is easy for kids to understand, but my favorite part about it is it points every single part of Scripture back to Jesus.

The Biggest Story and The Biggest Story ABC by Kevin DeYoung- These books teach how the Bible is really one big narrative.  I think it’s good for us adults to learn about/remember too!

God’s Very Good Idea by Trillia Newbell- This book beautifully shares the Gospel and shares the diversity of God’s Kingdom in a way that children can understand.  My boys love it!

Also…

Snow days.  Diet Dr Peppers.  Ice cream.
