For example Eve, Leh, Rahab, Naomi and Tamar. Each woman has a different area of misunderstanding which Mary brings out beautifully. There are different parts to each chapter. The woman's story.

Book Recommendation – Values Matter by Darlene Cunningham

For anyone out there who hates to read actual books—you're missing out by not reading this one. Values Matter, By Darlene Cunningham. It is a book I've been waiting to read and review for 6 months now, mostly so I could go through it together with my BLP students.  Why was Values Matter needed to be written? YWAM - Youth With A Mission isn't just a Christian missions organisation.

I’m recommending the book: What if Jesus was Serious?

My latest book recommendation is a book we're currently going through as a church by Skye Jethani called "What if Jesus was serious?" How's the book structured? It's a nine-part, 72-day devotional book solely looking at Jesus' Sermon on the Mount teachings. You find the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapters 5-7.  Each day starts with "If Jesus was serious… Then…" For example: "If Jesus was serious… then

Is that really you, God? by Loren Cunningham

My book recommendation for June is Loren Cunningham’s book - Is That Really You, GOD? I have chosen this book because it perfectly fits in with the theme of my recent blog posts about hearing God’s voice. The bi-line for the book is “Hearing the Voice of God”. This book has several excellent layers to it. Loren loves stories and wanted to record how Youth With A Mission (YWAM)

An Introduction to the Old Testament Template by Landa Cope

May’s Book Recommendation is Landa Cope’s An Introduction to The Old Testament Template: Rediscovering God’s Principles for Discipling Nations. Last week I became a student again as I joined a modular school of Advanced Principles of Communication. (APC) One of our required reading books at the start is this book of Landa’s. It was defiantly not what I thought when just looking at the book cover. To quickly sum

Book of the month – Friend Raising by Betty Barnett

My book recommendation for March is Betty Barnett's book - Friend Raising: Building a missionary support team that lasts Friend Raising was first published in 1991, 1996 and revised in 2003. In 2021, the kindle version was released. The Relational Fundraising website also recommends this book. I know many people who have thought about becoming a full-time missionary. Sadly one of the reasons they didn't do it was the fear of switching

Running with Giants by John Maxwell – February’s book

My book recommendation for February is John Maxwell’s book. Running with Giants - What Old Testament Heroes Want You to Know about Life and Leadership. My edition of the book is from 2002; the audio version came out in 2005. It was then republished in 2008 when Kindle and ebook versions were also released. I enjoy Maxwell’s little books, i.e. A5 size. Short, punchy chapters that I can read quickly

August’s book of the month – the me I want to be – by John Ortberg

I enjoy many of John Ortberg’s books. But this one - the me I want to be - is particularly dear to my heart as it focuses’ on us becoming more of who God has created us to be - especially as individuals. For us to become better leaders - we need to understand and be comfortable with who we are as unique individuals. Ortberg’s book takes us through

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

"So what's your love language?" This may be a strange question to hear someone ask you if you're not familiar with Gary Chapman's books on The 5 Love Languages. If that's the case, then my book recommendation for July is especially relevant. We all need and want to be loved in ways that are meaningful for us. Not just in a sexual way but also by our family and

The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson

My book recommendation for April is Bruce Wilkinson’s book - The Dream Giver. I read it when it first came out in 2003 (which I know some of you weren’t born yet, sigh). It was such a great book for me at that time because I was nervously praying about moving to India. Over the years I’ve leant this book to several friends and fellow disciples as a book
