Books That Help Me in My Pursuit of God…

What can I say about One Thousand Gifts  that everyone doesn’t already know, except I can only read a page or two at a time. The truth is so profound and the writing so deep, that it takes me time to really digest what I am taking in. It is life-changing, inspiring, beautiful.

How to Listen to God by Charles F. Stanley This was the first Christian non-fiction book I ever read 17 years ago, and today, I am currently reading to my children. It truly opened the door to a two-way relationship with the God — helping me to be aware of God speaking, and learning to discern His voice.

The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer My number 1 favorite right now of all the books I have read so far. It changed me, truly. It is my next read aloud to my kids. My heart is on fire for God — burning strong and steady. The words in this book help fuel it.

Andrew Murray on Prayer Andrew Murray will continue to be a close second to A.W. Tozer, as my favorite author. All of his writings convict my heart and compel me to draw near to God, fueling a burning desire to know Christ more.

    Hi Michele-Lyn, found your blog through the imperfect prose link-up.

    Visiting through your blog and found this page of great books. ‘The Pursuit of God’ is one of my favorites as well. Charles Stanley and Andrew Murray are favorites too. I’ll have to check these books of theirs out.

      You are the second person this week that has told me that. Not only that, but I have had it on my Kindle for months and haven’t even cracked it open – so to speak. 🙂

      I think I must, now. Thank you for telling me!

      With love,
