Q&A Day: What Books Have You Been Reading?

Dear Jill,

Have you read anything good lately or have you been too busy writing and speaking?



Dear Robin,

I have still been reading!  It seems that I always have a book or two or three going!  I just finished Karen Kingsbury’s book, The Chance. I love to read fiction whenever I can!

I’m currently reading Jen Hatmaker’s book, Seven, and it is really challenging me to a new level of simplicity. I also just started reading a book by John Bevere called Bait of Satan. It is very convicting and very freeing.

I’m re-reading the book The God-Empowered Wife by Karen Haught and Mark and I are still reading…again…How We Love by Milan and Kay Yerkovich. Both of these books have been transforming for our marriage.

I recommend all of these!

What about you? What are you reading right now?

  1. Awesome list. I am going to look into the marriage books. Right now, I am reading “The Last Runaway” by Tracy Chevalier. (She also wrote the Girl with a Pearl Earring). And, I need to start reading “No More Perfect Moms” 😉 Always love to see what others are reading.

  2. I am reading “Journey to the Fatherless” by Lawrence Bergeron. I just finished “Cleaning House” by Kay Wills Wyma. LOVED IT!! I will be writing a review about it and posting it on my blogsite within the next week. I highly recommend the book.
    I’ve heard Seven is good. I will have to add it to my “to read” list.

  3. Thank you for the list, Jill. I am currently reading The Husband Project by Kathi Lipp, and Reshaping It All by Candace Cameron Bure and loving both of them!!

  4. I am reading No More Perfect Moms (getting ready for the facebook study) and also just started reading “Soulshift” by Steve DeNeff and David Drury

  5. I’m reading No More Perfect Moms! It’s is so very encouraging! Thank you, Jill! I highly recommend it. I’m also reading Praying Circles Around Your Children by Mark Batterson. That is also really, really good!

  6. I have been reading “No More Perfect Moms”, “Not a Fan.” by Kyle Idleman, and I just purchased “Out of the Spin Cycle: Devotions to Lighten Your Motherload” by Jen Hatmaker! Jen was the speaker at a women’s conference I attended over the weekend (www.lightbearersconference.com) and I absolutely loved her! She talked about ‘Belong. Believe. Behave.’ and I had just read your blog post about that a couple days before! She is great and I really want to get “7”! She sold out of it at the conference, but it is on my list!!

    • Kirsten, we have considered Jen for a Hearts at Home speaker. I’m so glad to hear that you loved her! A friend just told me about “Not a Fan” and I’m planning on reading it!

  7. Last week I finished “Stressed-Less Living” by Tracie Miles. I am just now finishing up Jill’s “No More Perfect Moms”! Loved them both! 🙂 I also enjoy Debbie Macomber Blossom Street series. I have to admit too that I really enjoy Junie B. Jones and Fancy Nancy books which my 8 year old daughter and I read together!!

  8. I’m reading “Six Ways To Keep the “Good” In Your Boy – Guiding Your Son from His Tweens to His Teens” by Dannah Gresh. Can’t believe I’m reading books about parenting tweens–where did 11 years go???
