Recommended Reading

The following links invite you to benefit from my personal ministry reading list. This is a compilation of books {some ministry related and some not} that have in the past or are  now encouraging me as a pastor’s wife.  As always, by recommending these reads I am not giving a full endorsement of authors, ideas, and opinions. But these are books wherein  I believe you can glean solid encouragement for life and ministry. {This page contains affiliate links, which means that I receive a few pennies when you click through and purchase a book.}
