Colossians 3:12-14 (NKJV)"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing iwth one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things, put on love which is the bond of perfection."

Women Living Well by Courtney Joseph. The subtitle is "finding your joy in God, your man, your kids and your home." I'm a fast reader, so I'm trying to slow myself down to savor what she's written. Wonderful encouragement, suggestions, and examples of a woman in the trenches sharing her heart. Find out more and get great online encouragement and Bible studies at www.goodmorninggirls.org
Twelve Extraordinary Women by John MacArthur. Great Study that looks at 12 imperfect women from the Bible and how God used each of them for His glory. I loved it!
Made to Crave by Lysa Terkeurst is another challenging book, giving practical reasons for why we need to crave God and not food. It will "mess" with you, but it's all good! ;)
