Recommended Resources for Christian Women @mferrell

My Favorite Resources To Share:

I get asked so frequently what my favorite resources so I want to share them with you in one area, and I will continue to update as I add new ones. If there is a post that I wrote about a particular resource, I will try and link it.

Below you’ll find products and books in various areas so take a look through when you have a moment to sit. I love book recommendations, so I hope you’ll find those I’ve listed below helpful. I do use my Kindle quite frequently and love the lower prices sometimes available to get books in that format.

The resources I’m listing are ones I love and have used and benefitted greatly from.  I think you’ll love them too. I will continue to update this page on a regular basis.

If you’re a podcast listener, you can check out my favorite recommendations here. I’m part of The B.A.R. Podcast Network and you can find some other great podcasts to listen to here.
