Summer is here and it’s hot. Hot and humid! Too hot to rush around, it’s time to slow down. Time to live life at a more relaxed pace…we wish!
Whether you are at the beach, the lake or the kiddie pool in your backyard, find a shaded area, put your feet up, have a cold refreshing drink at hand, relax and enjoy a good book.
Here is a list of some of the books I have enjoyed reading, they are not in any particular order. Please note; I am NOT being paid to recommend these books, I have genuinely read and enjoyed each one.
First let me say, no book or devotional should ever replace your daily reading of the scriptures. We need God’s word in us daily if we want to grow in our Christian walk. Scripture is not just words on a page, it is food for our soul, meat to our bones. It’s nourishment…don’t skip a meal, this is not the time to diet.
That said I highly recommend The One Year NLT Chronological Bible, the flow is easy to read.
Here they are 20 thought provoking, encouraging, enjoyable books.
