For me, it was hard giving up secular music. The melodies and catchy hooks kept me addicted for so long. Not all of it is bad, but I need to be filled with the holy spirit other than sermons. Here are a few artist I listen to.
I applied for a job at a Christian book store. “Well let’s go see about my application and find a book.” I left with a journal and “Uncommon” by Carey Scott
Here are key points of the book
234 pages with large print
Paragraphs of personal stories
Highlights of uncommon women in The Bible (such as Deborah in leadership)
Bible scriptures with clear explanations
The book focuses on how being a Christian woman is out of the ordinary. Each chapter breaks down different principles. My top 3 chapters were: forgiveness gratitude & hunger for God. She had a perfect blend of biblical notes and her life dealing with her health and family.
Entertaining and informative, it was the first book I dedicated my time to in a while. I recommend this book for all levels of paths with Christ. Uncommon had me feeling more confident to live boldly for Jesus.
