As I mentioned recently, I am finally making more time for reading again. There are a ton of books I would love to read this year – as well as this list of books I want to read again. Many of the books I am reading (or hope to read soon) are related to marriage, but not all of them. I am trying to keep a good balance.
So, for all of you fellow book lovers… here is my current reading list! 🙂
I Recently Finished…
The Right Romance in Marriage by Cathy Rice
Wow, girls. This book is good! It’s definitely an older book, but what Mrs. Rice has to say is right on target. She really understands women and ends up preaching to the husbands in some chapters. There was so much good stuff in this book to glean from, that I want to read it again after I’m married. Mrs. Rice not only has a lot of wisdom, she uses plenty of Scripture, and her own marriage to back up what she has to say. If you are married, or getting married soon, I would highly recommend this book. (You can purchase this book right here.)
The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer
This title was on my list of books to read again. My fiance’ and I decided to go through this book as a weekly study. It has been a really good (and convicting!) book. Reading through this book has shown me just how shallow my walk with God really is. So many of us (myself included) settle for a very complacent and minimal walk with God, but He desires so much more from us! If you want to grow in your walk with the Lord, and your pursuit of Him, I would recommend this book. (You can find this book here.)
I’m Currently Reading…
Discovering the Treasures of a Godly Woman by Elizabeth George
I love the Bible study guides written by Elizabeth George, and I especially love this one. The Proverbs 31 woman has always been one of my role models, and my fiance’ was the one to give me this book. 🙂 I am enjoying working through each day’s reading and study questions. (You can purchase this book here.)
Strengthening Your Marriage by Wayne Mack
This is one of our required books for pre-marital counseling. 🙂 I just began reading this book on Sunday, and I am looking forward to what we are going to learn as we go through this book!
On My “To-Read” List…
The Choice Is Yours: Life Happens. Walking with God is a Decision – another one on my list of books to read again. I can’t wait to be refreshed again with this favorite of mine! 🙂
Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life – I picked this book up for $1 at a local used bookstore. I’ve heard of this book before, but the title and description really jumped out at me! When life is busy, I need to have that “Mary heart” that just sits at the feet of Jesus to worship. So, I am anxious to find out what this book is all about.
What are You Reading?
I would love to hear what books you are reading right now – OR the books you hope to read soon! Have you read any of the books I mentioned above?
Please share your answers in the comments. I love hearing from you! ♥
