Books to read every year

In our email newsletter we shared Heather’s top 10 books she re-reads every year. Here’s why these books made her list!





Gospel Fluency: I need to intentionally rehearse the gospel to myself and immerse myself in it. It reminds me how everything in my life is impacted by the gospel and helps me to communicate that to others! It helps me to be able to speak gospel truths to others!

Messy Beautiful Friendships: Let’s be honest, friendships can be hard. Yet, we long to have deep friendships where we are known. This book is excellent for learning how to have friendships that can be messy and beautiful!  

Gospel – 90 Day Devotional: I read through this book to start each year. It helps to remind me of what Christ has done to save me and make me more like Him. It is a 90-day reminder that we never move past the gospel. I love using this book when loving Bibles!

Identity Thief: In a world that many find their identity in their job, marriage, hobbies, etc, this book is vital at reminding me who the Bible tells me I am in Christ. It is written by various authors. It helps you to know who you are in Christ and how that changes every aspect of your life. We all need to be reminded of who we are in Christ and encourage others to live out of that identity as well.

Being There: Sadly, someone I know is always going through a difficult season. This book provides so much wisdom and encouragement for those who are journeying with someone who is hurting. 

Awe: After reading this book every year, I am left more in awe of who God is! It will open your eyes to who God is.

The Simplest Way to Change the World: This is such a practical book. The author shows how something as simple as opening your front door can make a big difference. It is helpful to anyone know matter what age or where they live.  It is a great resource as you pray about who in your life you should invest in.

Christ Centered-Exposition/Exalting Jesus in: I love this devotional-style commentary series. The authors exalt Jesus as hero of every book. This series has helped me to grow in biblical literacy and to understand the Bible better.

Prayer: I love reading this book on the importance of prayer. It helps me to fight to prioritize prayer in my life!

Loving Your Church:  This book was just published last year! Yet, I have it on my list to read again this year. It is a valuable read to learn what church is, why being part of it is exciting, and why it’s worthy of our love and commitment.
