Tools of the Trade: Resource Recommendations

Honestly, this is hard to do.  I have so many favorites resources.  But I’m going to narrow it down to just a few suggestions in several categories.


  • I love my New Living Translation Life Application Study Bible for devotional reading.
  • I use the English Standard Version for most of my writing and study. {Which you can get free for Kindle or Kindle apps!}
  • My favorite study Bible is the Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible.


  • Jesus Calling
  • Streams in the Desert

Study Tools {offline and on}:

Books on Spiritual Disciplines:

  • Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster
  • The Spirit of the Disciplines by Dallas Willard
  • Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald S. Whitney
  • Intimate Faith: A Woman’s Guide to the Spiritual Disciplines by Jan Winebrenner

I’ve also compiled lists of other favorites such as:
