Must Read Books For Christian Women
1 | Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy With God in the Busyness of Life
I read this book for the first time when I was an itty bitty baby Christian. I had given my life to the Lord 6 months prior. At that time I didn’t know the importance of having a regular Bible study and prayer time. This book changed all of that. Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World is about the importance of sitting at the feet of Jesus regardless of the busyness and chaos in our lives. If you struggle with making time for Bible study and prayer then you need this book!

Once you’ve realized the importance of Bible study then you need to get this book. Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin offers a clear and concise plan to help you go deeper in your Bible study.

3 | Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely

4 | Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer
How many of us pray as often as we should? I know I’ve been guilty of relying on chance and circumstance instead of fervently praying and relying on God. Prayer is such an amazing privilege and gift! Fervent will motivate you to get on your knees and intercede on behalf of your family and loved ones and to never take prayer for granted again.
5 | Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions
This is the second book by Lisa TerKeurst on this list. She is definitely one of my favorite Christian authors. Unglued is a must-read for anyone woman who has trouble controlling their emotions.

6 | Women Living Well: Find Your Joy in God, Your Man, Your Kids, and Your Home

7 | Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul
So many of us have dreams and desires as little girls that get crushed and broken as we grow up. Because of the hurt and pain, we experience in this world many women can become cold and bitter. The message of Captivating is your heart matters more than anything else in all creation to God. This book helped me to understand my own heart and the way God designed it and grow closer to God.

Wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand. This book will help you to discover how you can discern the voice of God.
10 | The Power of a Praying Woman
As wives and mothers, we are constantly praying over our husbands and kids but we often forget to pray for ourselves. Power of a Praying Women is broken down into 30 chapters. Each chapter addresses an important area in every Christian women’s life. At the end of every chapter, there is a prayer and carefully selected scripture that pertains to the chapter.
This is not a read once and done book. This is a book that I go back to over and over. The information in this book is worth more than gold to me. And that is not an exaggeration! Stormie Omartian, the author of this book, is an amazing, holy spirit-filled, gifted author.
This book and the prayers inside have transformed me, my relationships with others and my relationship with God in a way no other book has (besides the Bible, of course) 😉
You can also purchase The Power of a Praying Wife, The Power of a Praying Parent, The Power of Prayer to Change Your Marriage and many others. All of which I own and HIGHLY recommend!
If you don’t have a whole lot of time to read like me, you should try listening to audiobooks. I love listening to books while I fold laundry, clean house, do my makeup. It makes doing chores I don’t really like to do just a bit more enjoyable.
