Hey Friends of NLD,
I am planing on getting back to the 23rd Psalm series this week….I promise! But I have just a quick moment to share with you some things that I am reading and have just finished reading and I would highly recommend these books!
The first is Captivating by John & Stasi Eldredge. It was fantastic and very much what I needed. A little excerpt off the back cover says this, “Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman-they are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.”
The second is So Long Insecurity, you’ve been a bad friend to us by Beth Moore. I am still reading this and I am in chapter 12. It is a great read as well. Beth so identifies with the heart of a woman and knows our language. She communicates tough truths in a way that we can hear and receive them. Let me share some thoughts from the back cover.
“You’re considering the book because you saw the word insecurity…and all your buried insecurities surfaced. You know you’re insecure. So either you rushed to snatch the book up, not caring who saw, or you casually strolled over, hoping no one would see you as you slyly picked it up. You know you need help. (You’re not alone).
Maybe you’re ok for the most part…but there are those insecurities you could work on. THings could be better. You’re wondering, Can I really say, “So long” to my insecurities? (Yes, you can.)
Or maybe you’re just curious. You’re fine. You wonder what on earth there is for so many women to be insecure about. And has Beth Moore, of all people, struggled with insecurity? (Yes, she has.)
Whoever you are, this book is for you, because you have it in you to be secure”.
So….if you are looking for some good reading material check these out! Are you on spring break this week?? Share with us what your family is doing as we are stuck here in the office peering out the window and the wonderful sunshine and warmth!
See you back in the 23rd Psalm in the next post!!
