Spiritual growth is essential for our battles with fear and anxiety. One of the best ways we can grow is to learn. I love to dive into a new read and learn from other Bible-focused teachers about how our faith lives affect our freedom from fear. This is why I gathered just a few of my all-time favorite book resources to share with you. So while you or your kids are enjoying spring break, like I am with my family this week, be intentional and choose to open a good book that will bring growth!
Here's the deal: While I love the books I'm about to share with you and have helped me learn new lessons, there is no book as important as the Bible. As Christians, the Bible is our guide and should be the #1 place we go to learn how to grow and live like Christ! John 17:17 says, "Your Word is TRUTH"! So friends, let's run to the truth for instruction and encouragement before we run to any "self-help" section at the bookstore. This is the Bible I personally use; it has excellent application and teaching tools to help us understand the scriptures deeper. Grab this Bible for yourself, or if you need help figuring out which Bible would be right for you, please reply I'd love to help!
