Summer Reading: 7 Books to Build a Strong Christian Home




Just recently a sweet lady in our Titus 2 Group recently asked for some recommendation on books on how to build a strong Christian home as she felt that God wanted her to work on this area in her life and now was the time to do it.

I am so grateful for this gal for wanting to obey God's heart for her home. It is so easy to become busy and consumed with life that we don't make the time to prioritize and take time for the important things. There are so many distractions nowadays too that can take us away from doing what we need to do!

And sometimes it is so easy to let our lives run on auto-pilot. Yes, and how do I know? Because I have done it! Sometimes you are in a season where you might need to do it (and that's okay) but there are always ways to build and it is important to learn them.

We always want to recommend the Bible first (if you don't have one you can find a good one here), that is always our starting point for all of life. It is our compass and without it, we would be lost. This is the first place we always need to defer to.

Here are some important books we recommend that have encouraged us as well:


THE MOST IMPORTANT PLACE ON EARTH:WHAT A CHRISTIAN HOME LOOKS LIKE AND HOW TO BUILD ONE


We just recently covered this book in the past year as a study (it has questions at the end of each chapter) on the blog and had a lot of fun doing so. If you'd like to see our posts just search this title in our search bar in the top right-hand corner of this blog! You can find this book HERE. 




THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY: HOMEMAKING


This one is a timeless classic written by an 18-century preacher. The wisdom here is priceless and this is one that my children will all get when they get married! I love the vision that is cast and how it paints a beautiful picture of what home life can be. 

You can this book HERE.




 THE EXCELLENT WIFE




I can't recommend this book enough---this book is full of scripture and how-to obey God and give Him glory in your marriage.

You can find this book HERE.




THE LIFE-GIVING HOME




Sally shares a lovely vision of how she purposefully makes her home a loving haven for her family and nurtures her relationships with them.

You can find this book HERE.





 HOW TO BUILD A STRONG CHRISTIAN HOME: ONE STEP AT A TIME




I wrote this book not too long ago and if you haven't read it--you should! It is a shorter read if you don't want to get involved in anything too long and as always --straight to the point!

You can find this book HERE.


BUILDING HER HOUSE




Nancy, a pastor's wife,  always has a way of speaking boldly while getting to the truth--I think you will enjoy her.

You can find this book HERE.




THE POWER OF MOTHERHOOD




This book is on motherhood and helps you to look at motherhood as a blessing and not as a burden as the world tries to convince us.

You can find this book HERE. 


I hope these books are a blessing to you!

  1. D.M. Lloyd-Jones' book Life In the Spirit In Marriage, Home, & Work (an exposition of Ephesians 5:18-6:9) is also excellent.
