Resources

Here is a list of books which you may find helpful in your daily life.

As a Christian woman, you have many opportunities to grow in grace and minister to people both in your home, church, and out in the community. You will find resources here to aid in all the areas God gives you opportunities. Of course, the best book is The Book--God's Holy Bible, but if you have time for other reading there are some great reads here. Solomon said it, "Of the making of books, there is no end," and so, this is a work in process.

We welcome your suggestions through our contact page for resources that you have found especially helpful. Please also use our contact page, for questions.
