Two Summer Reading Suggestions for Christians

Christian Nonfiction

Have you ever felt like you were battling to balance mental health amid the busyness or challenges of every day living? As a young mom, I felt that way often. Part of my struggle sat with control, and it morphed into a feeling of being overwhelmed with a spiral into depression. With wisdom from above and change of habits, life flows more smoothly these days. A few habit changes have helped. Here are the Daily Habits I Keep to Help My Mental Health. Feel free to list a helpful habit or two that has impacted you in the comments below.

Christian Fiction

For all you contemporary Christian romance fiction fans (that’s a mouth full!), I just finished Winter Brides and highly suggest it. Authors Denise Hunter, Deborah Raney, and Betsy St. Amant combine forces in these three engaging novellas. It’s a wonderful summer read–even if its focus sits in winter.

Happy reading!
