Hello, friends! Taking a quick mid-summer break from our usual content to share some resources that I think you might find helpful.
This list includes Bible studies, books, devotionals, and a journal. I (or, in one case, my daughter) have personally used all 10 of these items and would recommend them. Click through the links provided to check them out!

1. The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer. One of my favorite Bible studies ever!
2. Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss. It may seem strange to have a fiction book on this list, but I learn so much from it each time I read it. (I try to re-read this book on a regular basis.) The main character’s struggles so perfectly mirror my own in my walk with God. As I see how she gains victory in her life, I’m encouraged to do the same in mine.
3. Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin. The subtitle of this book is, “How to study the Bible with both our hearts and minds.” This book is a very practical help if you want to learn more about digging into God’s Word.
4. Becoming Elisabeth Elliot by Ellen Vaughn. I actually just finished this book recently. It’s a biography of the first half of Elisabeth Elliot’s life. The author gives a realistic view of Elliot’s struggles using many excerpts from her journals.
5. A Woman of Prayer by Betty Henderson. This was a very helpful Bible study on prayer, a subject I always want to learn more about.
6. 3-Minute Devotions for Teen Girls by April Frazier. I actually bought this for one of my daughters in her mid-teen years and she enjoyed it.
7. The Next Right Thing Guided Journal by Emily P. Freeman. I’m on my second of these journals – I filled one up in 2021 and started the next one in January of this year. However, you can begin the journal at any point in the year. It’s grouped by seasons and you just fill in the dates as you go.
8. Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot. I like this book for its encouragement, but I also like how it’s set up. The “chapters” are short so that it’s easy to read one a day along with my Bible reading.
9. Then Sings My Soul: 150 of the World’s Greatest Hymn Stories by Robert J. Morgan. At one point I used this as part of my devotional time in the mornings. I’d read one story a day after I finished my Bible reading.
10. Sweet Journey by Teri Maxwell. The link here is for the kindle version or you can go here to order the paperback version, which is what I have. A friend at church gifted me a copy years ago and it was a blessing.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Let me know in the comments if there’s a resource that’s been a help to you as you study the Bible. Have a great Tuesday!
