The books that i mentioned today will be linked in  the description box and yeah let’s just go ahead  . and jump right into it so the books are in no  particular order number one on my list is sacred  . marriage by gary thomas so my husband and i read  through this book when we were going through our  . engagement season this was a small group book that  was selected by our small group leaders and it  . genuinely prepared us for marriage in a way that  i was not anticipating prior to reading this book  . i had understood some of the biblical principles  and the biblical foundations of marriage but this  . book really highlighted some of the important ones  that i did not know i wasn’t grasping so first and  . foremost the big one that this book really left me  with and the big realization that has absolutely.

Shaped and impacted how i view marriage and  how i walk through my marriage currently  . is the concept that marriage is not to make you  happy but to make you holy just that in itself  . truly changed my whole perspective on marriage  i think the world and culture definitely um kind  . of promotes this concept that we should marry the  person that makes us happy and once you’re married  . you live happily ever after no like that is not  the case and this book really woke me up to that  . and really woke me up to the point of marriage  in that the whole point of marriage isn’t to make  . you happy at all that god created the context of  marriage to sanctify us to make us holy and within  . that process of sanctification there’s going to  be conflict there’s going to be things that arise  . that show you the areas in your life that you  need to repent of and turn towards god too so yeah.

This book i could not recommend it enough whether  you’re married whether you’re engaged whether you  . are wanting to be married it truly truly shifted  my whole perspective on marriage and i’m thankful  . for it so the second book on our list is by dr  miles monroe and the book is understanding the  . purpose and power of prayer so this is actually  a new pick up for me i recently came across this  . book after listening to dr miles monroe’s sermon  on prayer i actually recently shared that both  . on instagram and here on youtube but y’all the  the sermon just like blew my mind he talks about  . how the lord’s prayer is actually a template that  we’re able to use for prayer and then in the book  . he goes further into detail about the purpose of  prayer why we pray how we’re supposed to pray and.

Even it gives us 12 steps to follow when we pray  and i’ve been going through those 12 steps for  . the past two or three weeks now and i have truly  felt a shift in my prayer life like that thing is  . is taking off my prayer life is taking it’s being  taken to new heights because of this book and  . because of his sermons so i am so appreciative  and i’m going to recommend to everyone and their  . mother please check this book out especially if  you’re ever wondering how to pray or wanting to  . just elevate your prayer life in general this is  an amazing place to start and an amazing resource  . so number three on our list is the bible you guys  know i had to put it on here there are so many  . versions of the bible some of my favorites are  the amplified version esv and also csb those  . are my goto’s and then the message as well  when i’m kind of wanting something put in more.

Plain terms but i can’t not have the bible on my  list of seven books that changed my life because  . throughout my lifetime the bible will be the one  book i read continuously i think the bible is just  . a place where you can always go and find something  relevant it’s always going to be relevant no  . matter where you are in life no matter how old you  are in life and no matter like how old the bible  . becomes it will always be relevant and people  will always be studying the bible because it is  . just that deep like you can think you understand  everything and new levels can be unlocked you can  . think you know something and read it again and  now you’re getting something completely different  . it is the one book that you read that reads you  back and for that reason in itself i have to add.

It on the list and it is you know literally the  book i read every single day or try to read every  . single day so can’t recommend the bible enough of  course find the version that works best for you  . i definitely suggest you kind of using maybe one  or two finding one that you like to read and then  . one that gives you a little bit more context and  one that kind of breaks stuff down in a different  . way that the other one doesn’t and if you guys  would like a dedicated video about how to do that  . how to kind of find the best version for you  or just diving more into bible study in general  . definitely let me know i’ve been trying to just  learn more about how to study my bible effectively  . and i’d love to share it with you guys if you guys  would be interested so yes that is number three.

The bible number four on our list is the  purposedriven life by rick warren so i really  . love this book and it has really allowed me to  shift my dayto-day perspective on my life the  . book really gives you a different vantage point  and a different perspective that you can see  . your life through so instead of seeing  your life through your career being a  . mom or not being a mom being married or  not being married and what you achieve  . you’re able to see your life through the five  purposes that god innately gave each one of us  . here on earth for our lives it starts by asking  if it’s a question like what are we even here for  . and i feel like it’s such a great question because  a lot of us innately have that question right and  . we try to fill in the blank with what we think  but this really allows us to fill in the blank.

Of what on earth are we here for based on what  the word says based on what god says why he  . placed us here on earth so i’m gonna actually  read the first excerpt of the first chapter for  . you guys just to give you a little taste of what  really allowed my perspective to shift so it says  . it all starts with god it’s not about you wow okay  the purpose of your life is far greater than your  . own personal fulfillment your peace of mind or  even your happiness it’s far greater than your  . family your career or even your wildest dreams  and ambitions if you want to know why you were  . placed on this planet you must begin with god  you were born by his purpose and for his purpose  . so you guys see what i mean literally out  the gate you’re just getting this whole  . new vantage point to see your life through and  i love it it’s something that i really think.

I’ll continue to read throughout my life it  is 40 days you kind of read it as a devotional  . and it’s short enough chapters that you’re  really able to take in that information  . sit with it and move on to the next day so highly  highly highly recommend this book i think for  . anyone in life that’s wondering like what am i  doing here or what am i doing what should i do  . this is an amazing place to start so number  five on my list is a book called home going  . by ya gazi i read this book back in 2017 and  it was a very timely read for me because i was  . actually traveling to ghana at the time and this  book woke me up to my new favorite nonchristian  . genre of books to read it is africanamerican  historical fiction and the story that this book  . tells and the way that it is able to weave these  characters together and really give you a sense.

Of the impact that slavery had not just on the  continent of africa but on the enslaved people  . brought over to america it is just it was  the most beautiful book i’ve ever read  . i’ve never cried at the end of the book like i  cried at the end of this book it is truly just an  . amazing read and it gives you a first person point  of view into the experiences of an individual and  . guys i just i i don’t have any words it is just  truly a book that will touch your heart and will  . allow you to really put your feet in someone  else’s shoes and to walk it out and to really  . see what that would be like and it also gives  you a comparison so you know it tells the story  . of two different families and it weaves it all  together however you’re really able to experience  . what happened with one family and what happened  with the other and how like one life event really.

Shifted the whole entire generation of  that family to come like guys it’s just  . a phenomenal read if you’re on the market for a  fiction novel i could not recommend this enough  . again after i read this book i realized my  new favorite nonchristian genre of books  . is africanamerican historical fiction  and i’ve enjoyed the genre ever since so  . definitely recommend this book so the next book on  my list is captivating by john and stacy eldridge  . i read this book back in 2016 i believe when  i was first starting out my walk with god  . and it truly allowed me to see how i was placing  men above god in my life and trying to get a man  . to fulfill what only god can fulfill in my life  and in my heart so the book really talks about  . a woman’s heart how she was made how god made her  to be and it also talks about how often women will.

Feel like they are lacking in a specific area  so whether that’s love whether that’s attention  . whether that’s you know being sought after being  pursued and instead of going to god to get full of  . these things we turn to other things in our life  to see if they can give us that fulfillment and  . when i read this book i was just so awakened to  how unhealthily i would operate in relationships  . and how i would truly make the person i was dating  absolutely responsible for all of my emotions and  . for making me feel good for filling me up it  also has an accompanying book for men i don’t  . remember the name of it i’ll have that linked  below as well um but yeah it’s a great book to  . read like if you’re dating or if you just want to  understand men a little bit better or if you’re a  . man and wanting to understand women a little bit  better or if you’re a woman and want to understand.

Yourself and men a little bit better it’s just  yeah these are really really great books so the  . last book on my list is closed legs do get fed by  d daniel thomas so this is a book i came across  . when i was first trying to figure out how to walk  out celibacy i had no guide i had no gauge of  . anyone like ever doing it ever in my life and it  just seemed like this impossible feat and i came  . across this book in the amazon store and it truly  helped me understand how to just talk about it it  . gives you such practical tips how to talk about  being celibate the whole point of being celibate  . not going into celibacy thinking like if i’m  celibate god will give you my husband but really  . try to just seek god’s heart through that trying  to seek a deeper relationship with god through  . that and to honor god with your body and with  your relationship through celibacy and even giving.

You points on like how to navigate interesting  situations that come up when you are celibate  . it was just so full of so much practical advice  that i was needing because i had again absolutely  . no idea how to walk it out now i will say that  this book i don’t agree with a hundred percent of  . everything it talks about and i don’t want anyone  to read the book and to yeah i think i’m endorsing  . everything that it does talk about she talks  about masturbation in a way that i don’t think  . biblically is accurate and kind of reflects what  the bible says about that she also talks about  . living together in a way that i also don’t think  is completely biblically sound but it doesn’t  . take away from the really great practical tips  in terms of walking out celibacy that the book  . does provide so definitely be mindful of those  things but if you are looking for a true guide.

On how to have conversations and truly what  it means to walk out celibacy and you’re just  . starting your celibacy journey or you’re just  starting wanting to research more into this  . i think this book is a great place to start all  right guys so that is my list these are the seven  . books that have changed my life i hope you enjoyed  this video if you did be sure to give it a thumbs  . up and now it is your turn so in the comments  below let us know a book that you have read that  . has truly changed your life i’m always looking for  new recommendations so i look forward to seeing  . what you guys suggest and what you guys share with  us if you guys would like more books on or more  . videos on books and what i’m reading definitely  let me know in the comments below as well i  . would love to put something together like this i’m  always reading something so yeah i kind of always.
