What are you reading this summer?

I don’t know about you, but I like to spend the lazy months of summer catching up on great reading (hopefully while laying beside the pool!) You may not have realized it, but we’ve got a list of our favorite books right here on the Lies Young Women Believe website.

In fact, we’ve just added a new book to the list. It’s tilted Making it Real: Whose Faith is it Anyway? and it is written by T. Suzanne Eller. Here’s the summary that appears in our “favorites” section.

If you’ve grown up going to church, or call yourself a Christian, you’ve probably heard every Bible story, and everything you’re supposed to believe. But what do you really believe? Do you rely on a hand-me-down faith or a set of rules and directions in your head and not your heart? What does it mean to build a personal relationship with God?

Here’s an opportunity to ask these kinds of questions without feeling like the spotlight is trained on you. Making It Real will help your faith grow into a dynamic relationship with God as you get rid of “churchianity” and find out if your faith really is more than a habit. You’ll discover who God is to you, if you trust Him when life is unfair, and whether you’re ready to trust. Packed with real stories from real teens, practical biblical teaching, five days of devotions for each chapter, and space for journaling, Making It Real will help your articulate exactly what YOU believe and why.”

To check out our other favorites, simply click on “get started” at the top of the www.liesyoungwomenbelieve.com homepage. Then, click on “favorite books” on the left side of the page. We’d love to hear what you think about our favorites and hear your suggestions for other resources that have pointed you toward the power of God’s Truth!
