As the snow melts, and little shoots of green finally push their way out of the cold Earth, we’re reminded once again of the magic renewal the season of spring offers us. It’s when all things become new again, and somehow energized and refreshed. And I’m not just talking about our annual springtime linen closet purging. I’m talking about our spirits. And our souls. Those stirring flutters underneath that come out to tickle our minds into deep spiritual and devotional thought, especially during the Holy season of Easter. Which makes spring the perfect time to pick up one of these spiritual, devotional, or inspirational books, and renew your time with Christ this season. 



An Imperfect Woman—Letting Go of the Need to Have it All by Kim Hyland

Perfectionists, this needs to be your new bible. Kim explains the difference between perfection, and perfectionism/perfectionist (and how you can stop being one), and talks about the steps to take to finally allow God’s grace to gently carry you into accepting yourself for who you are, faults and all. 





Believe Boldly—The Power of Simple, Confidant Prayer to Unleash the Supernatural by Erica Willis

Willis is the founder of an international prayer ministry, so she knows of that which she speaks. This is a confidence building book, teaching the power of simple yet limitless prayer, and how it can transform doubters into truly faithful people.





Fierce Faith—A Woman’s Guide to Fighting Fear, Wrestling Worry, and Overcoming Anxiety by Alli Worthington

Using scripture and biblical wisdom, this book will help to alleviate many of the most common fears women have, as well as the anxieties and worried hearts we all carry around with us. 






Nothing to Prove—Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard by Jennie Allen

Admit it, you are burdened by the comparison gene and are constantly trying to prove to friends, family, and even strangers, what and who you are as if that would prove your worth. This title helps rebuke that lie, and reminds you that to God, you are enough. Simple as that. A must-read and my favorite of the bunch. 






Searching for Spring—How God Makes All Things Beautiful In Time by Christine Hoover

In His time, all things are made beautiful. We’ve all read this many times, but still we doubt and grow impatient when our plans are not His plans. This is a hope filled book that follows the seasons of the year, and analyzes the renewal in each as a reflection of our spiritual renewal.





One Beautiful Dream—The Rollicking Tale of Family Chaos, Personal Passions, and Saying Yes to Them Both by Jennifer Fulwiler

The laugh-out-loud book in the bunch, Jennifer’s tale of raising six kids all while trying to “have it all” will encourage tired and “over it” mothers everywhere. 






Why I Hate Green Beans by Lincee Ray

In this book, Ray reminds us that we are exactly what God intended us to be, so skinny jeans be darned! Learn how to see yourself in the greatest of lights,  embracing  all of your imperfections, and trusting God in the process.






Everyday Holy—Finding a Big God in the Little Moments, 100 Devotions by Melanie Shankle

A beautiful devotional you will reach for again and again, and filled with small pieces of grace to help you reexamine your life. 






Giddy Up, Eunice—Because Women Need Each Other by Sophie Hudson 

A book for all the women friends in your life, this title will have you smiling and reminiscing about girlfriends past and present. It’s also a reminder that God puts certain women in your life and at certain times in your life, with specific reasons in mind.

Your Husband Needs Friendship Too

As the clock inches closer to 7:00 on a Monday evening, I pull out whatever dessert I had prepared that week and set it out on the kitchen counter. This particular week it’s a trifle, but other weeks it may be brownies, pound cake, or cookies of some kind. My eyes do one last sweep to make sure there isn’t a tripping hazard disguised as a dog toy on the floor and that the leftover dinner is put away. Then, my kids and I make ourselves scarce. Sometimes that involves library runs or gym visits, but it mostly looks like...

This Is Why Moms Ask for Experience Gifts

In: Faith, Living, Motherhood
Mother and young daughter under Christmas lights wearing red sweaters

When a mama asks for experience gifts for her kids for Christmas, please don’t take it as she’s ungrateful or a Scrooge. She appreciates the love her children get, she really does. But she’s tired. She’s tired of the endless number of toys that sit in the bottom of a toy bin and never see the light of day. She’s tired of tripping over the hundreds of LEGOs and reminding her son to pick them up so the baby doesn’t find them and choke. She’s tired of having four Elsa dolls (we have baby Elsa, Barbie Elsa, a mini Elsa,...

When You Just Don’t Feel Like Christmas

In: Faith, Living
Woman sad looking out a winter window

It’s hard to admit, but some years I have to force myself to decorate for Christmas. Some years the lights look a little dimmer. The garlands feel a bit heavier. And the circumstances of life just aren’t wrapped in a big red bow like I so wish they were. Then comparison creeps in like a fake Facebook friend and I just feel like hiding under the covers and skipping it all. Because I know there’s no way to measure up to the perfect life “out there.” And it all just feels heavier than it used to. Though I feel alone,...

When Your Kids Ask, “Where Is God?”

In: Faith, Kids
Child looking at sunset

How do I know if the voice I’m hearing is God’s voice? When I was in high school, I found myself asking this question. My dad was a pastor, and I was feeling called to ministry. I didn’t know if I was just hearing my dad’s wish or the call of God. I was worried I was confusing the two. It turns out, I did know. I knew because I was raised to recognize the presence of God all around me. Once I knew what God’s presence felt like, I also knew what God’s voice sounded like. There is a...

Woman looking at pregnancy test with hand on her head and sad expression

To the woman who is struggling with infertility. To the woman who is staring at another pregnancy test with your flashlight or holding it up in the light, praying so hard that there will be even the faintest line. To the woman whose period showed up right on time. To the woman who is just ready to quit. I don’t know the details of your story. I don’t know what doctors have told you. I don’t know how long you have been trying. I don’t know how many tears you have shed. I don’t know if you have lost a...

I Was There to Walk My Mother to Heaven

Hand holding older woman's hand

I prayed to see my momma die. Please don’t click away yet or judge me harshly after five seconds. I prayed to see, to experience, to be in the room, to be a part of every last millisecond of my momma’s final days, final hours, and final moments here on Earth. You see, as a wife of a military man, I have always lived away from my family. I have missed many birthdays, celebrations, dinners, and important things. But my heart couldn’t miss this important moment. I live 12 hours away from the room in the house where my momma...

Addiction Doesn’t Get the Final Say Over My Son

In: Faith, Motherhood
Woman praying with head bowed

She is so tired. It is a kind of tired that no amount of sleep or rest can alleviate. It is a kind of tired that surpasses physical and even mental fatigue. It is a tiredness of soul—a tiredness that comes from wondering, and grieving, and not knowing how to save her son from the drugs the enemy has bound him up in. She kneels alone on the floor in her bedroom closet. This is where she came when the fear and the uncertainty and the panic started to creep into her heart again. She came here to pray, though...

I want to be that praying mama. The one who stops on the side of the road when the time seems fit, just to take those few short, undistracted moments to lift my kids up to God.

Blessed Are Those Who Can’t Even

We argued about an orange last night after dinner. Not even a large orange. A tiny mandarin. As emotions escalated between my beloved husband and me, the eldest child graciously removed herself from the table and donned noise-canceling headphones while the smallest child openly snickered and was dispatched to her room to play while we hashed things out in “peace.” I’d love to say that was the most insane thing we’ve ever argued about, but that would be a lie. My kids love to remind us about the breadstick incident a few years back. Life has been a bit overwhelming...
