I am one that loves to read but usually doesn’t finish a book. I have a particular taste and honestly, many books are hard for me to read because I have a slight learning disorder. Many times I will listen to audio books or both read and listen; rare occasions I will sit and read through a whole book. Everyone has their own tastes, and their own ways of learning, mine is more audible than anything. With that said, these are the few that hooked me. My favorite genre of books are, of course, Christian books, but more specifically books that bring edification and encouragement for my soul. So here’s my list of Christian Books for Women Focused on Growth in Christ.
1. God has a waiting room by Kim Haney.
My Pastor’s wife lent me this book knowing it was going to encourage me. She was right! It’s my current read, and I only read a couple pages a day, kind of like a devotional. There are many waiting rooms in life and this Kim Haney teaches you how to get through them.
2. The Hannah anointing by Michelle McClain-Walters.
I absolutely love this book. At the beginning of my infertility journey I listened to the Hannah Anointing and clung to every word. It changed my perspective and strengthened my trust and faith in God. Michelle teaches Hannah’s story and explains each detail. However, it’s not just for infertility of the physical, but also for those going through barren seasons in their walk with Christ.
3. Fervent by Priscilla Shirer.
I originally listened to Fervent but I now own it and plan to listen and follow along to utilize the prayer journal aspect. I learned lots of things about prayer for myself, my current loved ones and my future family. Priscilla also leads you in prayers to help you break the chains and bondages and ideologies holding you back from a powerful prayer life.
4. The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian.
Another book recommended by my Pastors wife! (She always knows just what I need for encouragement and edification!) There are so many ways i didn’t think about praying for my husband, and honestly, the prayers i learned to pray helped us break through into a stronger level of love, understanding, and intimacy. This book will teach you how to both pray for your husband or future husband if you aren’t yet married.
5. The Esther Anointing by Michelle McClain-Walters
This is the second book I’ve read by Mrs.McClain-Walters, and she has many more like this one that feature various other women of the bible. The Esther Anointing really opened my eyes to the way God views women. I learned He created us strong and resilient. Michelle teaches a very different perspective on Esther. Esthers story isn’t a cute fairytail, her story is full of hurt, danger, and overcoming difficult circumstances. It’s a very powerful book. I would suggest any of Michelle’s books. My next audio book I listen to will be the Deborah Anointing.
