Books for Christian Women Who loves to read!? I have a list of books every Christian woman should read. What is on your night stand? What is on your reading list for this year?
Some questions will not have answers till we are this side of heaven. And I read books, to get as much insight as I can soak up, till I stand in front of my Heavenly Father.
I don’t come accusing God with loaded questions, but there are some mysteries we will not be enlightened to until we stand before God and all His glory. Then again, I’m sure God’s reveal of His mysteries are on His timing, even in Heaven.
So I read. I’m not blessed with easily memorizing scripture or putting together analogies from the Bible into my real life situations.
So I read. To glean from others, their words that grab my attention and shed a light on what I might not have understood on my own accord.
I’ve been asking my friends, family and Facebook followers what they would suggest a Christian woman add to her book collection.
In no particular order, here is the top 5 that was suggested.
5 Books Every Christian Woman Should Read

I do love a good devotional, but sometimes I want something different and that’s when I found Jen Wilkin’s book “Women of the Word”. It’s a “how to” study the bible approach instead of a daily devotional. As a woman of God, I want to be all in. No more skimming the top for my bible reading and quality time with God.
I don’t normally read fiction, but this one was highly recommended. Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is a powerful retelling of the story of Gomer and Hosea, and is a life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love. My heart swoons at the thought that God, the One that sits on His throne, loves me like this.
I cried with this one. Seriously, what I was going through when I read this just had me in tears and it ministered to my heart. I’ll always keep this book in my book shelf. It’s cover is a little tattered, but I enjoyed this one to much to let it go. Micca Campbell
explores the anxieties of every woman’s heart from insecurities, to finances, to marital challenges, to raising healthy children.
I had to read the introduction 3 times to move forward to chapter one in this book. Seriously, I kid you not, this book is highlighted up! Breaking free from spiritual strongholds by praying and scripture. Beth Moore reminds us that nothing is bigger than God! A must read for sure.
Sometimes I think I must live under a rock. Boundaries are a somewhat newer concept to me. Because of my personality, I will hold on to hope for a relationship even if it destroys me. Yes, I hate to admit it, but I needed help setting up boundaries in my life. This book was a great guide to help me understand what boundaries are and how to put them into place. A must read!
There are several on my to read list….. Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst, One Thousand Gifts by Ann VosKamp, Crazy Love by Francis Chan and Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer just to name a few.
