Books I'm Reading

I always love to see what other Christian women are reading. I think because I was not raised in a home where Biblical femininity was taught I am always trying to learn as much as I can about what the bible says about women and our roles. Here are the books I am reading or have recently finished.

John MacArthur Study Bible.
I love this Bible! I've had other study bibles in the past and was not super impressed by them. The notes all seemed really liberal and circumstantial. But this one seems to be really good. My husband bought it for me because he liked his so much.

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God
This book is so helpful and encouraging! I'm loving it. It's one of those books that causes you to stop and pray constantly.

Large Family Logistics
This book is great for large and small families. The jist is to organize and set up systems that are logical and efficient so that you're not burned out and floundering.

Created to be His Helpmeet
I love this book. I have read it at least once a year, usually twice, for the past 5 or 6 years. Whenever I feel like I'm losing focus or forgetting the reason that God created Eve I read it. I can honestly say it has helped to change our marriage.

She Shall be Called Woman
This is actually a 9 part audio set by Victoria Botkin. It is AWESOME! She is so logical and helpful. I finished all nine hours during a long road trip and am ready to start from the beginning again!


  1. I have Passionate Housewives Desperate for God in my to read pile.

    So tempted by the Victoria Botkin CDs though!

    I wasn't raised in a Christian home so I was thinking something like Training Our Daughters to be Keepers at Home might be a good start?

  2. Becoming God's True Woman by Nancy Leigh DeMoss is a really good book, too. We did a woman's study with that book at my church recently and I was very pleased to grow because of God's truth revealed to me! I will have to look into Created to Be His Help Meet.
    Oh, I also love MacArthur Study Bible! I have been blessed by God, just this year, to understand His election and it has beautifully changed my relationship with Christ! Anyway, that study Bible reminded me of that.
    God Bless!

  3. I have (and have read) Housewives Desperate for God and Large Family Logistics and loved them both. I am going to look into getting some of the other books/resources you mentioned because they look wonderful.

  4. Jenny, You should definitely get the Victoria Botkin cd's they are so worth the money and I have been able to share them with lots of other women!

    Ryshel, thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely look into that!

    My Little Gifts from God- I've heard that "The Excellent Wife" is another great one. I own it but have had zero time to read it!
