My Favorite Devotionals, Christian Lit, and Bible Studies

Hey, friends!  I hope you are doing well!!  A popular question on our 2018 survey revolved around my favorite Devotionals, Christian Lit, and Bible Studies.  In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am FAR from perfect in this or any other area, but I do LOVE a great Christian book.   So, I am happy to share my favorites here with you today.

There are so many great books out there, but these are the ones that really spoke to me and made a marked difference in my walk with the Lord.  I hope you love them, too! So, here we go!

81nx-h4UqxLThis book is my all-time favorite and is so good! It came at the exact time that I needed it and was just what my heart needed to hear at that very moment.  If you struggle with prayer, let this be the first book you read.  Even if you don’t, read it too…It’s that good.

Armor of God

So,  exactly one year after I read Fervent, I picked up this Bible Study which is very similar to Fervent!  You will love this one as a follow up to Fervent or on it’s own!  Also, if you prefer a Bible Study Format, then this is a great place for you to start.  You will be so blessed by this one!


The Best Yes


This next book is for all of my people pleasers out there (aren’t we all this in some form or another?)!  In this book, Lysa talks about giving yourself permission to say no when needed….and saving your yes for the things that truly matter.  I feel like there are a million books about being BUSY, but this is the one that provided the most practical and Biblical process about simplifying your life to allow more room for God to work in it.



If you are looking for a challenging Bible Study, then I can’t recommend this one enough.  This one required me to dig deep and really STUDY my Bible, but it was just so rewarding in the end.  The lessons are so applicable to this world and the videos are so good!  So, if you need to go a little further, this one is for you!  This study stretched me a ton!  I loved that!

Finding I am


This is the study that I am doing right now, and can I say that it has been so perfect?  Sometimes, I think January is hard, because it comes on the heels of the Holidays, is dark, and just plain blah…But this study is the perfect mix of tender-hearted and Bible Centered.  I could totally see how this would be so helpful to someone who’s struggling this time of the year.  I totally recommend this one!

The Applause of Heaven


Well, I just love Max Lucado and his writing. This book is another great one and is so encouraging and uplifting!   I read this last year, but I think I might pick it up again!  It was that good!

The One Year Bible41q+0DYgh6L

And, finally, my friend Shay shared this One Year Bible on her blog, so I picked it up…and it is such a blessing!   There is a reading for each day, and it is so incrediblyhelpful;  Shay always has the best recommendations!  I am so glad she shares them with us!

Happy Wednesday, y’all!  I hope you enjoyed some of MY favorite Christian books!   Do you have a favorite?  If so, leave it in the comments! XOXO Narci

  1. I absolutely loved The Armor of God study. And I loved Max Lucado Be Anxious For Nothing book. REALLY GOOD. I also highly suggest The Listening Life (book) and Soul Keeping (book) Both were my favs of 2017


  2. Have you read Mom Set Free? It’s not really a study, but a great mom encouragement book?

    Also, I would like to start participating in Friday Favorites, but I have never done a link-up. Can you give me a short tutorial on how to get the graphic?


  3. The first bible study I ever did was Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer….I love it and her! I am going to order Fervent right now…I always struggle with prayer. Thank you for the recommendations!


  4. Wow, thanks for these recommendations!! I’ve never read anything by Priscilla Shirer but I keep thinking I should. I love Beth Moore, she has great books. So does Max Lucado. 🙂


  5. I’m reading Fervent now, and just got to Chapter 3. It’s exactly what I need right now….thanks for such a good list!


I love to hear from you! Leave a comment here! :) XO Narci
