Favorite Books for Women to Grow in their Faith

What books have inspired you to be a Christian woman, a wife, a mother, a great employee, a friend, a homemaker, a discipler, a studier of the Bible, a prayer warrior, a servant... ?

My church is starting a woman's discipleship program , so I'm looking for books and articles to share that are based on Scripture, provide practical ideas for women to grow in their faith, and stimulate conversation for small groups of women.

Will you take a moment to think about the books that have helped you to grow in your faith? What are the books that you think every Christian woman should read?

"Let Me Be a Woman" by Elisabeth Elliot. Pretty much any book by her is amazing, but I loved this one because it was so practical. Also, "Pleasing God" by Kay Smith. Right now I'm reading "The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life" by Hannah Whitall Smith...haven't finished it yet, but so far it's amazing (even though the title is kind of silly :)
I love Elizabeth George Books - A Woman After God's Own Heart, Beautiful in God's Eyes(Based on Proverbs 31), Life Manangement for Busy Women (great for getting priorities straight).

All of these have handbooks with bible study and discussion questions that can be purchased to go along with the book.

Children's Prayers During Meals

The Armistead family taught our children a lovely blessing to sing at the dinner table. It is sung to the tune of the children's classic song, Are You Sleeping?

God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
We bow our heads to thank you
Bow our heads to thank you

We love this blessing, and we've recently adapted it to involve younger children and guests. Instead of everyone singing each phrase twice, we sing it as an 'echo prayer'. One child leads the song, starting with the first phrase, "God our Father". The rest of the table echoes. Then the leader leads the second phrase , "once again", before waiting for the table to echo. And so forth, until the whole blessing is sung.

It's an easy way to remind our children (and ourselves) to give thanks to our Provider and Sustainer throughout the day.

Goody Bags for Marriage Retreat - please share your ideas!

Reader Question:
I am in charge of creating 74 goody bags for an upcoming marriage retreat for my church, and I am in desperate need for some frugal, creative ideas on what I could put in these bags. In the past I know people have put little candy bars, a bag of microwave popcorn, a couple of packs of hot chocolate, tea bags etc so I was looking for ideas that might be something similar, but maybe a little different too. Would you have any fun thoughts on this?

A Few Ideas:
Visit - Meredith does a fantastic time being incredibly hospitable on a budget.Our women's retreat coordinators wrapped the following things in a cellophanebag: a mininotebook, a pen, a candle, peppermints, chocolate kisses,and a colored paper quote/scripture. A friend just suggested packing candies that correspond to questions: an almond joy - share a joyful moment in your marriage, a hershey kiss - something about your first kiss, snickers - laughs, lifesavers - when your…

26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers

My two boys LOVE legos, so they naturally end up scattering lego creations and random lego pieces throughout the house.  Last weekend, we converted their closet to be a LEGO WORLD.  Now they can store lego (and knex) pieces in their lego world, they have instructions for all of their kits in a ziplock bag, and they have a place to display their favorite ships.  And I have a mostly lego-free kitchen and living room!!

I just stumbled upon a great article with ideas for storing legos, if you have similar struggles in your house!  Check this out:  26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers
