It's a new year and perhaps you're ready for some books to help you get off to a great start. I have a few recommendations for you. 

The book that (besides the Bible) that impacted me the most last year was The Grumble-Free Year by Tricia Goyer. This book helped me identify and deal with the grumbling in my life. I loved how Goyer was so honest about her own struggles. You can read it free on Kindle Unlimited.

Perhaps you are feeling stuck. 2020 left you feeling disappointed and unable to change things you really want to. I'd love to recommend Nancy Demoss Wolgemuth Bible study Elizabeth: Dealing with Disappointment and Sick of Me: from Transparency to Transformation by Whitney Capps to you. I love how both of these books deal with the heart of the issue and provide healing, clarity, and motivation. 

When life has been in chaos, sometimes we need reminders of very important and basic truths. That we can trust God, He hears our prayers, and that we can thank Him in all things. Robert and Nancy Wolgemuth's book, You Can Trust God to Write Your Story, addresses how we can trust God no matter what. For choosing gratitude and joy, I highly recommend Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. And couldn't we all use reminders about prayers? Your Powerful Prayers by Susie Larson is among my favorite on the topic.

Some of us learn more from the story of people than we ever do even the best Christian living books. Christy by Catherine Marshall continues to be the most life-changing fiction book I've ever read. I don't agree with all of the theology and it isn't for the faint of heart. Yet, it is a story that examines the motivations of the heart powerfully. While a true story, Charles R. Swindoll's, Joseph: A Man of Integrity and Forgiveness, is always a wonderful book about an inspiring man who saw all the wrongs done against him as nothing compared to what God did through him.

Lastly, for a fun way to kick off your year with mystery and great writing, I recommend Brought to Book by Barbara Cornthwaite. It was among my favorite finds of 2020 and a book I will reread. It's also available on Kindle Unlimited.
