God’s Guest List: Welcoming Those Who Influence Our Lives by Debbie Macomber

Whatever we realize it or not, people have shaped our lives, either by being there for us or we simply admire them. Of course, the Lord should be the first one to influence our lives, but there are others that high on our most influenced list like our parents, pastor, teachers and others that have been a huge part of our lives. Some might cause negative influences, but there are those that will be a more positive influence, and it’s best to focus on those that have a positive influence on your life.

Approval Addiction: Overcoming Your Need to Please Everyone by Joyce Meyer

This is a must read for women. As Christian women, we tend to want to make everyone around us happy, whatever it is your husband, children, parents, in-laws, even the family dog. While we are focusing more on “people pleasing,” we forget about pleasing God. It’s time to end the “people pleasing” and start on “God pleasing.”

The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer

Like The Resolution for Men that is featured in the movie Courageous, The Resolution for Women focuses on how Christian women make a resolution on embracing the Lord’s plans of Biblical womanhood in a postfeminist culture that is promoted in the United States. Love and honor God and husband and teaching the children Godly principles are highly stressed in this book.

Fresh Start: The New You Begins Today by Joel Osteen

When people accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, they become a new person with their slates wiped clean. For most people, it is hard to accept their new life because of the memories of their past lives are still fresh in their minds. Instead of focusing on the past mistakes, disappointments, it’s time to start focusing more on the positive new beginning.
