Women's Ministry

 

Keeping warm out there?  Have you started the New Year curled up with a good book? I hope so!  Speaking of books, welcome to Women’s Ministry Wednesday!  My tip for you today – don’t forget to feed your bookworms!

I personally love reading Christian books, and thankfully there are so many good ones out there these days.  We live in a time where many Christians are writing some really good content, both fiction and non-fiction.  I wish I could get to all of them, but I neither have the time or money.  Enter a church library.

If your church has a library, be sure to either use some of your women’s ministry budget or your church’s library budget to purchase good quality Christian women literature for your women.  If your church does not have a library, consider starting your own informal one.

Try to keep a good balance of books that will appeal to the diverse group of women in your congregation.  You may purchase a new book each month or several at a time.

Make sure to advertise your new arrivals in the library, and let the reading begin!  Your book lovers will love you for it.

  1. I am reading the Best Yes right now. I love books and I can thank my parents for that. Many of my childhood years we had no TV, a choice my mother made for us. So, we read. She read to us. I am usually reading 2 or 3 books at once. So.. I love your advice. We need to feed our souls. Thanks for sharing! Blessings!

  2. Thanks for sharing these! I’m always looking for something new to read. I also am currently reading The Best Yes. Wonderful book. I will check out some of the others you mention.

    1. Abby, We did The Best Yes in a book club format. I loved that book. It’s really about learning to hear God. I know you will enjoy it. I’ve not read all the others. Some were books received at a blogger’s conference where publishers came in and gifted us. I had so many that I donated them to our library. Our pastors are always buying books, and I realized that I needed to be “throwing” some women’s books in there, too! ~Gina

  3. Women sharing books and sharing inspirations always winds up being this amazing blessing… our church does a book club, and it’s great to connect over powerful reads. No one goes home empty but soul-full. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I agree. We have done book clubs before, too. There are a lot of fun and very insightful. Thanks for stopping by! ~Gina

  4. I’m interested to learn more about these books. I just came across the Love Dare for parents and it sounds interesting to me, but I haven’t started it yet. Thank you for the recommendations. I’m pinning them now!

  5. Hi Gina,

    I too love books,my library growing by the day, whether paper back or eBook, or audio for that matter. I am increasingly enjoying audio books.
    I’m currently reading, Becoming Myself by Stasi Eldredge.

    1. Anita, I love books,too! I’ve listened to audio books when I had a commute, and enjoyed them greatly. Thanks for stopping by! ~Gina

  6. Thank you for this helpful idea, Gina! Just this morning I was lamenting the fact that there are some more books I would like to purchase, but I’m out of book money. 🙂
