Not Alone Series: Spiritual Writings

Linking up with the ever-fabulous Jen at Jumping in Puddles and Morgan at Follow and Believe!

What are some of your favorite or go-to books for devotionals, or even blogs that help encourage you in your spiritual life?

Oooh, I'm looking for some new suggestions from you, friends! Can't wait to hear what you're reading!

My two favorites are: One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are* by Ann Voskamp {check out her blog, too!} and He Loves Me! Learning to Live in the Father's Affection* by Wayne Jacobsen.

Both are regular chapter books that I've adapted to read as part of my devotional time. Ann Voskamp does offer an accompanying devotional, and I do enjoy having space in the text to write. Wayne Jacobsen's book... man! I've read it half a dozen times, and I have two copies on my bookshelf so I can loan them out to people. It is so, so good.

As for blogs that are encouraging... that's a long list, my friends! I don't read blogs if they are not encouraging or uplifting in one way or another, but since we're focusing specifically on spiritual encouragement in this post, here are just a couple of my favorites:
What about you, friends? Send some recommendations this way!

  1. I have heard of One Thousand Gifts before but thank you for reminding me of it right when I need it most

  2. Natalie, it's one of my favorite books! I highly recommend it :)

  3. That Shauna Niequist post is legit! I blogged about it not too long ago. Her main point is fantastic, although some of her support was fuzzy.

  4. Lindsay, what's the link to your post? I'd love to read it!
    I do love Shauna's post... I read it every once in a while for a pick-me-up :)
