Suggestions, please

My Bible study group is about to wrap up our current book, and we need a new one! We're finishing Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges -- du-de, it has been kicking my rear. Probably will be a post on that later this weekend.

Just to give you some background, this is a group of girlfriends, all married, one with a kid, some working, some not. Maybe a book on marriage or relationships, or on how to juggle everything in this crazy life we all lead? I know there are some readers out there -- thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Totally recommend From Fear to Freedom by Rose Marie Miller. Think we've talked about that.

Alternatively, Tim Keller came up with a new book - The Reason for God. Hubby read it and thought it was fantastic.

I wrote down a whole list of books when I was at our mission conference. Remind me and I'll send it to you. They suggested a lot of good books there.

Oooh, I've heard really good things about that Bridges book, but I haven't picked it up yet.

On marriage: When Sinners Say "I Do" by Dave Harvey (we're still reading through this one) and Love that Lasts by Gary & Betsy Ricucci.

On busy-ness: Shopping for Time by Carolyn Mahaney

Hmmm...there are so many. Have you read "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" I enjoyed it.

"Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" is excellent.

Have you all read Eat, Pray, Love yet? It's a good one for almost every woman - something for everyone!

I'm planning on doing a study this fall titled "Enhancing Your Marriage: A Woman's Bible Study" by Judy Rossi. I've heard wonderful things about it.

In the past, I've been so blessed by Beth Moore's studies. They're a big time commitment, but so worth it!

Got a couple of suggestions but here are 2 right now:

1. Loving Your Husband (Building an Intimate Marriage in a Fallen World)- Cynthia Heald. Simple yet powerful.

2. Stepping Up - Beth Moore. It was my first time to do a Beth Moore one and she is deep in the book but at the same time, she is hilarious and intense on video.
