6 Life Changing Devotionals for Women

image1

Most people have heard of Jesus Calling ( also by Sarah Young ) which I love but Jesus Lives has been a long time favorite of mine. This devotional reminds you that even in the midst of your daily life Jesus is alive and His presence is with you! One of my favorite things about this devotional is that Sarah usually gives you about 3 verses that go along with the devotional and instead of just giving you the verses to look up they are already written out for you which is a plus in my book!  This devotional is the perfect size to keep in your purse and to share with others as a  midday pick me up! Click here to check it out.

This devotional is so powerful and it’s what I’m currently diving into myself. Whispers of Hope helps get you into the routine of P.R.A.I.S.E which is a prayer time that includes: Praise, Repentance, Acknowledge, Intercession, Supplication for self,  and Equip. If you are looking for a devotional that will transform your prayer time this is it.  Beth Moore guides you through 10 weeks of prayer where each day begins with getting into the Word, a devotional, then your own personal prayer time. This devotional is ideal for someone that can devote 20-30 minutes each day in prayer. It truly has impacted my time with Jesus. Click here to check out this devo.

I read this devotional every day for a year while I was a part of the World Race ( an AMAZING 11 month mission trip ). That was such a special time in my life of being single and understanding my worth as His Princess. I highly recommend this for every woman to read at some point but especially for any woman who has ever felt unworthy or devalued. It’s written as a love letter from Jesus packed full of truth about how unique and special you truly are. I love the tenderness of this devotional and I’m so grateful I found it when I did. Check it out here.

Some of you have already heard me go on and on about this prayer devotional and I’m not going to stop any time soon because I seriously believe every wife needs it. I often find myself getting stuck during my prayer time and just praying the same prayers for my husband but this devotional helps me to cover so many different aspects of our marriage and his walk with Jesus. If you ever struggle during your prayer time for your hubby or maybe you don’t even know where to start then this devotional is a wonderful guide to help you pray some powerful prayers for your husband.

  • Savor – Shauna Niequist

If you haven’t heard of Shauna Niequist do yourself a favor and read some of her quotes – You will not be disappointed. I love everything she has ever put out and this devotional will always be a go to of mine because Shauna is so easy to relate to. She starts every page with a Bible verse and then shares a story or testimony of her life then challenges you with a question at the end. She covers a wide range of topics from friendship, marriage, babies, miscarriage,  forgiveness, and much more.  This devotional is a favorite of mine because it feels like I am having coffee with a friend. Check out this devo here.

A devotional about thanksgiving is such a day changer. I loved the book One Thousand Gifts and when I found the devotional I had to snatch it up! One of my weaknesses is being negative and ungrateful so this devotional truly helps get me out of that mindset.  Ann writes so beautifully that it not only helps you to see the beauty that’s around you but it will also inspire you to write and to give thanks to Jesus for all of the gifts He has given you. This is the perfect devotional to help you fix your eyes on the goodness of Jesus. Check it out here.

31 Prayers for my Husband

image1

Happy Wednesday, friends! I don’t know about you but I definitely want to be known as a woman of prayer or even a wife of prayer but if I’m being honest praying for my husband isn’t that easy for me. It usually sounds the same and I find myself getting overwhelmed because I know there are SO many aspects of his life that I could cover.  So, for Christmas I decided to order my husband and I these prayer devotionals I came across on Facebook from The Unveiled Wife and The Husband Revolution and they truly have transformed mine and my husbands prayer life for one another. I am so thankful for this devo you guys! The sweetest part is that after every prayer they created a space for me and my husband to write out our own prayer for one another and I feel so loved when my husband lets me read the prayer he wrote out for me. If you and your husband need a little prayer motivation I definitely recommend these devotionals. I’ll give you guys a little peek into this devo by writing out one of the sweet prayers Jennifer shares. You can find Jennifer’s  devotionals here.

“Dear Lord,

You know just how challenging marriage can be. My husband and I experience the ebb and flow of different emotions as we live together in this beautiful covenant of marriage. Our relationship has encountered both good times and more difficult times, joyful moments and painful moments. Yet all of it helps us to understand Your great love all the more! Our marriage specifically shows us the power of Your amazing grace. I pray that we are always humble enough to extend grace to each other. I pray that no root of bitterness will ever find a place in my husband’s heart. For if there were no grace, our marriage would be full of trouble. Thank you Lord for Your gift of grace, for mercy, and forgiveness. Thank You Jesus for exemplifying what grace should look like in marriage. I desire to have an intimate relationship with my husband where we can love extravagantly, be transparent with each other, and be quick to show grace to one another. May You help my husband to truly forgive me in the areas in which I am weak, and may we both be willing to reconcile during moments of conflict. Help my husband and me gift each other extraordinary love through the power of Your amazing grace in Jesus’ name AMEN!”
