I’ve been encouraged lately by a few books and podcasts – I thought you might enjoy too!
The first is a new podcast by Emily P. Feeman, author of Simply Tuesdays called The Next Right Thing. The Next Right Thing Podcast
The description: For the second-guessers, the chronically hesitant, or anyone who suffers from decision fatigue, best-selling author and host Emily P. Freeman helps create a little space for your soul to breathe so you can discern your next right thing in love. Because out of the thousands of decisions you make everyday, chances are a few of them threaten to keep you up at night. If you’re in a season of transition, waiting, general fogginess or if you’ve ever searched “how to make a decision” on the internet, then this podcast is for you.
Also, her voice is so soothing!
The next is She Reads Truth
They are a fantastic resource, with an iphone app, Bible Studies for all the family and a new Study Bible. They recently took a trip to the Holy Land; I followed along ( in their back pocket) through instagram and loved it!
Their instagram profiles:
Amanda Williams, Raechel Myers & She Reads Truth
I was so encouraged by their book I read/listened to it twice (I listen to a lot of books on work trips) She Reads Truth Book
I also listened to this book twice by Shauna Niequist: Present over Perfect. I love her open and honest way. Some of her other books are Bread and Wine & Cold Tangerines.
This sweet video of Bird singing out on the choir room piano reminded me of God’s love for us, because if I get joy from watching her, how much more does he enjoy us singing out to him unguarded and fully ourselves?
“But Jesus called to them, saying, “Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:16
I learn often from watching her unabashed passion and joy!
