20 Ways to Enjoy Life More As A Christian

Are you a truly enjoying life, or are you a miserable Christian?

Being constantly stressed, angry, worried, depressed, and bitter people in no way resembles what God intended for our lives to be as Christians.  It's time to be proactive and become acquainted with the tools that God has already given us through His Word and Holy Spirit, so that we can break free of the things we allow to hinder our walk with Him, and our enjoyment of life.

In my first of many books, I teach biblical, yet practical changes you can start making in order to see significant improvements in your life, and begin to actually enjoy it the way God intended.  As for those of you who think you are already enjoying life, you ain't seen nothing yet!

book cover - battlefield of the mind

The Battlefield of the Mind

God has used Joyce Meyer to inspire me in my Christian journey in more ways than one.

Her most popular bestseller ever, The Battlefield of the Mind is by far, my absolute favorite book written by her. Next to the bible, it has been the single most influential book for me in regards to my Christian journey!

Whether its worry, doubt, confusion, depression, anger, feelings of condemnation, or just negative thoughts in general, this book shows readers how to change their lives by changing their minds.  And of course you can ONLY do that with help from God and His Word!

book cover: discerning the voice of God

Discerning the Voice of God

Priscilla Shirer is an internationally recognized Bible teacher who focuses her ministry on teaching women the Word of God, and the importance of understanding and applying its truths.  Her books and sermons have inspired and motivated me in more ways than one.

Discerning the Voice of God is one of her bestselling titles.  It teaches that the ability to hear God's voice is not only for those who lived in biblical times, but rather for all Christians.  In fact, wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand.   You just have to be able to discern His voice.

As a fanatic for learning the Word of God myself, this book served as an excellent resource for helping to cultivate my faith, especially in modern times like ours where their are so many other "voices" competing for our attention.

book cover - all things according to God

All Things According to God

Throughout the history of Christianity, the people of God have believed in the sovereignty of God.  However, there has been and remains to be disagreement as to the extent of that sovereignty.  

All Things According To God sets forth the truth that God's sovereignty is absolute over all Creation, literally, in every way.  In addition, it demonstrates that our understanding of God impacts the rest of our theology.  It is a call to all who belong to Christ to understand God's revelation of Himself in His word, the Bible.

This is definitely a great read for those who truly desire to know God more.  Plus its written by an awesome man of God, Pastor Kenneth T. Minor, who happens to be my father!

book cover - this present darkness

This Present Darkness

Frank Edward Peretti is a New York Times best-selling author of Christian fiction, whose novels primarily focus on the supernatural.

To date, his works have sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

This Present Darkness happens to be one of my favorites, as it puts a whole new perspective on spiritual warfare and how we as Christians truly need to be on guard against the enemy.  Definitely worth the read!
