Reading the Psalms
Since the Psalms put words to the deepest emotions and groaning of humanity, we are also able to rekindle trust through these hymns. When we read them, pray them, or sing them, we are reminded that God is more than willing to shed the light of truth into our circumstances though His very words, the Word. Pray and ask God to open your eyes so that you “may see wonderful things” in His law (Psalm 119:18). This chart is a helpful tool for reading the Psalms by topic.

Get to Know Your Authors and Speakers
Many times, dynamic personalities trump sound doctrine. Make no mistake, the Christian market for women is a huge money maker, primarily in books and conference ticket sales. It is sad when we find so much of our modern-day writing/speaking that is not faithful to the scriptures yet marketed as Christian. This reality has prompted me to create a guide for discerning Christian authors and speakers.
