First, Lady in Waiting by Jackie Kendall & Debbie Jones.
This book is probably super out-dated now, but I read it my Junior year in high school after my first heartbreak. It really spoke to me a lot about guarding my heart and making sure it belonged to the Lord FIRST. I have given this book/ recommended it to more young woman than I can list. If you are in a season of waiting for the Lord to provide a husband (or even a boyfriend - which sounds ridiculous to me now, but it was my reality when I first read this), it is a great study.
Next, Captivating by Jon and Stasi Eldredge
I'm guessing that this one is going to show up on lots of lists today... It is a BEAUTIFUL book about the heart and soul of a woman. I first read this in college when Jeff and I were dating and talking about/ I-was-waiting-anxiously-for marriage. I'm not sure any book has ever spoken so directly to my spirit. I still think about this book ALL the time when it comes to understanding how I am made and how that influences my relationships, etc. I've read it more than once and recommended it to me many girlfriends.
And, So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore.
I am actually reading this book right now (also one that I'm sure will pop up a lot today) and really loving it for this season of my life as a new mom etc. Motherhood, like most other big milestones in life, has really revealed some of my biggest insecurities and the lies I believe about myself. Beth Moore has an incredible way of being wise and powerful in her words, but also ordinary and gentle. For me, now is the perfect time to read this book; but, it would speak to women in many different stages of life.
That does it for me - although there are LOTS more books I could recommend if I wanted to keep going. I'm really looking forward to seeing what other women have shared at Kelly's Korner today.
