A Woman’s Guide to Hearing God’s Voice by Leighann McCoy, Cost- $11

God is speaking, we just need to learn how to listen. This is especially true during times of trial or heartache, when women need to be reassured that God has a plan. McCoy provides personal stories, biblical narratives, and wise insight to demonstrate how God is already active in every woman’s life. It’s just a matter of knowing what to look for. Women will not only be reassured of God’s care, they will be challenged to take hold of God when their faith is shaken.

Covenant by Precept Ministries, Cost- $20 (if you buy the book)

Many have testified that as a result of studying covenant, their spiritual lives have undergone major transformations. In Old Testament times, covenant was the foundation of social order and even today, all God’s interactions with mankind are based on covenant. In this study you will see the thread of covenant running from Genesis through Revelation, obtain a deeper appreciation of the New Covenant with Jesus Christ and come to know God more intimately in the process.

Breathe by Priscilla Shirer. Cost- $10.00

We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
