5 Books That Changed My Life

When I look back on all the spiritually challenging books I've read over the course of high school, college, and now my first year of married life, I can identify five books that have most impacted me. These are not wimpy devotionals that barely skim the surface of Scripture. No, these are powerful, piercing books that dare to delve deeply into the wonders of God's Word. And as truly deep as they are, these still manage to speak effectively to everyday people--like me. They are not difficult to read, but if you decide to plunge into them, be prepared for your faith, your perspective, to be shaken. 

1. One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, Ann Voskamp

2. Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis

3. The Hiding Place, Corrie ten Boom

4. Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life, Emily P. Freeman

5. A Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live, Emily P. Freeman

I recommend reading these with a highlighter handy, and to dig the most treasures out of these books, have your Bible, a notebook, and a pen close by, too. Read them with a willing heart and the mindset of a treasure-hunter. There is no telling how many spiritual jewels you will glean from them.
