Book and Link Week: Spiritual Renewal

Disclaimer: If you read anything that I've recommended here, please don't check your brain at the door. The only infallible book is the Word of God, so my recommendation does not mean that everything in these books is necessarily correct or that I agree with everything that is in them.

I don't usually post on Sundays, and actually I'm not writing this on a Sunday since I'm writing posts ahead for this week. However, it seemed fitting to finish out book and link week with those that have helped me spiritually so far this year and to post it on Resurrection Day. Besides my favorite King James Study Bible for Women and the helpful messages from my pastor (especially the recent series on Soldier Saints), I have learned from these authors:

Praying Your Prodigal Home by Richard A. Burr helped me to see that we have to release our children to God and helped me to know better how to pray for the "prodigals" in my life.

Discover Your God-Given Gifts by Don and Katie Fortune was the first I've read with a test to find out your spiritual gifts. I was left with a little ambiguity on my #1 gift, but the insights on how to use my gift's strengths and minimize the weaknesses were helpful.

A little on the practical side of spirituality, I thought this free download was a great resource for modesty:
Modesty Heart Check

Hope you enjoyed Book and Link Week. I'll be back to regular posting tomorrow. Don't forget to share the good news with someone today: He Died, He Was Buried but HE IS ALIVE!
