Hi friends! It’s Olivia, from The Daily Dose with Liv.
For a long time, I thought reading the Bible was boring. I was afraid of not understanding it and wanting to be like everyone else. But The Bible isn’t boring. It speaks truth. It holds God’s Words and He so desperately wants to share them with you.
Below are a list of devotionals and books that I’ve heard about and/or have read through. And a little shameless self-promo here, but I have a post over on my blog that includes other faith-filled books that point you back to Jesus. But let me know if you like any of these.
Disclaimer: I haven’t read through some of these, but I have read recommendations from reviews and influencers who have read these. So, if you like any of these, leave a comment below!
- Live in Grace, Walk in Love: A 365 Day Journey by Bob Goff
I’m currently going through this devotional by Bob Goff. If you haven’t read anything by Mr. Goff, stop what you’re doing and go buy “Love Does,” then, “Everybody Always.” His words are full of joy. His passion includes talking about Jesus with ordinary people. This is a 5-day-a-week, 365-day journey that will leave you drawing closer and closer to God.
- New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp
I have to say, I haven’t read this but I’ve seen many influencers and YouTubers pick this one up and recommend it! Pick this devotional up if you are beginning to know God.
- Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
If you grew up in a Christian household (like me), do you remember your mom leaving these on end tables and/or bathrooms? I highly, highly recommend this one because it targets young women. There are other ones that target other specific audiences, but highly recommend this one!
- Embraced by Lysa TerKeurst
Lysa TerKeurst, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, created this devotional for women of all ages! 100 devotions, jam-packed with God’s truth.
- 100 Days to Brave by Annie F. Downs
I gifted this for a friend a while back, and now I want my own copy! I highly, highly recommend listening to Annie F. Down’s podcast “That Sounds Fun” as well!
- “Am I Enough” by Grace Valentine
This isn’t a devotional, but I treat each chapter like it’s a devotional. This book, y’all. From her mission on Grace’s blog, she wanted to write a relatable Christian lifestyle book that talked about college, parties, drinking, boys, and anything else that may be in a young woman’s life. I highly, highly recommend picking this book up.
