  1. Yes you are right–there is no substitute for daily time in the Bible! A good book on devotions can also be super helpful and you’ve got a great list of them here! Thanks for sharing them with us Victoria!

  2. Loved how you highlighted each of the instructions in Dueteronomy 6:5-9 by giving each their own line. It caused me to sit with each one and think about it longer than I would have. You’re right it is like the safety instructions given on an airplane – Great analogy. Appreciate your insight and sharing of God’s word today.

  3. Oh my gosh I’ve read the “read the Bible for life” book quite a few times. Its so helpful! I keep a prayer journal and write letters to God. I’ve been doing this since I was 15 and I love seeing how God has been working in my life. Great post!

  4. This is right on time. God has been dealing with me for a long time to do my prayer times in the morning. This blog was very encouraging. Thank you?

  5. Some suggestions I have heard of and some I have not. Number one on my must have list is the ESV Journaling Bible. That will be my next Bible I get a new one every other year. I will have to print this out and refer to it when I am looking for something new. Thanks for the post

  6. I just bought Spiritual Disciplines in the Christian Life! How funny! I actually found it at the thrift store for 49 cents! Score! Glad to know it’s good 😉
    As for the others, I also love anything by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, but I actually have only read a few of her books. So thanks for the inspiration to read her others! (Not that I don’t have about 1000 books to read already….remember your post about reading all the books on our shelves before buying new this year? Yeah….oops, guess I fell off the wagon on that one!

  7. What a great list of resources. My Utmost for His Highest is one of my favorite. I love how much depth and insight are packed into these short devotions!

  8. Wow, these are great resources! I didn’t know most of them. She Reads Truth is a great site.

  9. I love how you prefaced your list with the why/explanation of these resources. Yes, nothing can replace Scripture – but these are all oh so helpful when studying and understanding what the Lord would teach us. I have been wanting to purchase Savor for a while, and the First 5 app looks like an excellent resource so thank you for sharing all of these! While I am not a mother, my days often start at 4am with work and the devotional I currently use (and love – it’s Whispers of Hope by Beth Moore) is wonderful, but it takes a lot of time and so I use it for later in the day. However, I still SO need a designated something in those early hours before I face the day with my students because Anna without Jesus is not very pretty!!! 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  10. Thank you for this list! I use the inductive Study Bible, I love it! God bless!

  11. Wonderful List!! You have reminded me once again to fill my own cup first! I love Hello Mornings for my morning study..its a free online printable study and is quick as once I wake up my kids hear me and come after me pretty quick!

  12. so many great resources here! The Jennie Allen book, Restless is one I have been meaning to read for awhile. Also, choosing gratitude is one I would like to read.
