Real Women Resources

Real Women Resources

There are SO many resources, good and bad, out there today. I wanted to give you a few evangelical Christian books and websites that I have found to be helpful and trustworthy.  The Bible is the only perfect book, so I encourage you to pray for discernment from the Holy Spirit before you pick up any book, listen to any podcast, or logon to any website.  God gave us His word as the foundation of truth to measure everything else by, so I urge you to not be “led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ” (2 Cor. 11:3).  Many of the authors listed below I either know personally or have watched them live their lives for Jesus in powerful ways that have helped me do the same. We will add to this list as we find more helpful resources.
