We love the books that are a part of Moody Collective, but realize that our books don’t address every topic our readers are facing. Plus, there are other great books out there. Here are a few of those great books, and the scenarios in life when you might find them useful:
Hello, I Love You, Ted Kluck
According to Ted Kluck, there’s nothing like adoption to make a grown man cry. Repeatedly. If you’re in the process of adopting (or you’re looking back at the journey) and you want a voice that you can laugh, cry, and breathe along with, this is a book for you.
Just Do Something, Kevin DeYoung
The subtitle in this book says it all: A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will OR How to Make a Decision without Dreams, Visions, Fleeces, Impressions, Open Doors, Random Bible Verses, Casting Lots, Liver Shivers, Writing in the Sky, Etc.
Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married, Gary Chapman
Before you plan your wedding, plan your marriage. Gary Chapman, best known for The 5 Love Languages, speaks directly to the newly or soon-to-be-married, by reminding us that forgiveness is not a feeling, that toilets are not self-cleaning, and many more lessons from his first years of marriage.
The White Umbrella, Mary Francis Bowley
Every year, over 100,000 girls in the United States are forced to do someone’s sexual bidding. Most of them are between the ages of 9 and 19. Sex trafficking happens, even in the United States–in our neighborhoods, towns, and cities. Mary Francis Bowley, founder and president of Wellspring Living, tells the stories of some of these girls and the people who have alongside them to hold the white umbrella of protection and purity over them on their road to restoration.
