31 Days of Proverbs, A Gift for You

When I was a little girl, there used to be a little plastic box (that looked like a loaf of bread) sitting on my kitchen table.  It was full of cards that I would pull out and read while I was eating breakfast.  Each card had a different Proverb on it.  Those were some of the first scriptures I remember reading on my own.  I have always loved the Proverbs.  They're straightforward, practical, and all about wisdom.  

I was thinking about that box of cards the other day when I got the idea to make something for you, dear readers, a free printable booklet with Proverbs.  I've combined my love of designing graphics with my love of scripture in a way that I hope will be useful to you.

10 Great Books to Encourage Your Christian Faith

Do you love to read?  I sure do.  I don't have as much time as I'd like to have for reading- so I'm picky about the books that I choose.  I love a great novel that makes me think, something I can get lost in, and I enjoy a light beach read, when the time is right. But most often, the books I gravitate towards are the ones that can teach me something (and get straight to the point), books that make good use limited precious time.

The following list of books that I've compiled were chosen with three criteria:  

  • I've read them (and wholeheartedly recommend them)
  • They encouraged me in my Christian faith (and I believe they'll encourage you)
  • They offer solid, no-nonsense, Biblical teaching in a compelling manner.
