What Grieving People Wish You Knew
Aging With Grace
Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family
Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World
Radical. Crazy. Transformative and restless. Every word we read these days seems to suggest there’s a “next-best-thing,” if only we would change our comfortable, compromising lives. In fact, the greatest fear most Christians have is boredom—the sense that they are missing out on the radical life Jesus promised. One thing is certain. No one wants to be “ordinary.”
What Every Child Should Know About Prayer
Every Moment Holy, Volumes 1 & 2
EVERY MOMENT HOLY brings new liturgies for the ordinary events of daily life, such as "A Liturgy for Feasting with Friends" or "A Liturgy for Laundering" or "A Liturgy for the First Hearthfire of the Season." These prayers are ways of reminding us that our lives are shot through with sacred purpose even when, especially when, we are too busy or too caught up in our busyness to notice.
It's hoped that the liturgies in the Every Moment Holy series will serve as prayers to encourage readers in practicing mindfulness of the constant presence of God and draw them toward greater recognition of the eternal echoes resounding in every moment of our lives.

Lisa, it's a great book and a great small group study. Read Maryleigh's comment below. This study was so encouraging when I've done it with small groups—twice now! :)

I love the Lydia Brownback studies I've done. I'll have to look at the one on Habakkuk. I love Nancy Guthrie's books, too, but have not read that one. Loved Aging with Grace. Several of these look good.

Barbara, I've heard good things about Becoming Free Indeed: My Story of Disentangling Faith from Fear and I love Hannah Anderson's books too. Putting both of these on my 2023 reading list! Thanks for all of these great suggestions! :)
After reading about Aging with Grace here, I was intrigued. I bought the book and ended up leading my church's women's group through Aging with Grace last Fall - I wish more women under 50 had come because the Faith stories that were shared by the women in the group as a result of the promptings of the book - WOW - such beautiful, deep encouragement for all age groups. Right now, I'm finishing up The Way of a Pilgrim.

I am so encouraged to read this, Maryleigh! I have done Aging with Grace twice now with small groups and both times it was so encouraging!! And you're right, the title kind of frightenes off the younger women. However, we're all aging (even if you're 18) and we all want to do it with grace! I'll have to check out The Way of a Pilgrim. Thanks!

I have come to enjoy and appreciate so many of the Daily Grace Co.'s bible studies and other materials. Thanks for sharing your favorites.

I love their Bible studies too, Donna!! And when they are on sale for just 5.00, like they are this week, who can pass up a deal like that—especially if you're buying for a small group!? What a GREAT DEAL!! They are so beautiful and theologically spot on! LOVE THEM!

Thank you for sharing. I haven't read these and will add to my list.

Nancy Guthrie's book about grief is so helpful. Aging with Grace sounds wonderful too. Thanks for all these recommendations!
