My Essentials

My all-time favorite books, movies and music
Future Grace, Revised Edition: The Purifying Power of the Promises of God
Future Grace, Revised Edition: The Purifying Power of the Promises of God
by John Piper
WHY I LIKE IT
This is one of my all-time favorites and one I return to often. It reminds me that right now as I fight temptation, grace is truly available to me. I don’t fight alone. It’s not a lonely battle when we remember God’s promises.
Spiritual Depression
Spiritual Depression
by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
WHY I LIKE IT
Another wonderfully helpful book. The Christian life isn’t always rainbows and sunshine. There are times of great desperation. At some point, everyone will probably experience a dryness they didn’t anticipate. This book is helpful for identifying the cause and for sharing solutions from God’s Word. It’s just good to know you’re not alone.

Tell the Truth: The Whole Gospel Wholly by Grace Communicated Truthfully & Lovingly
Tell the Truth: The Whole Gospel Wholly by Grace Communicated Truthfully & Lovingly
by Will Metzger
WHY I LIKE IT
I used to do college ministry and one of the books that helped me best prepare for sharing the gospel was this one. I did old-school evangelism (knock on the door, invite them to a Bible study, share the gospel) and this book simply helped give me faith for sharing. I think I need to re-read this book!
The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness: The Path to True Christian Joy
The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness: The Path to True Christian Joy
by Timothy Keller
WHY I LIKE IT
This little book has greatly served me as I’ve stepped out in faith to lovingly serve others. I’m grateful Keller reminds me it’s not that I need to think less of myself, but that I need to think of myself less.
The Spiritual Danger of Doing Good
The Spiritual Danger of Doing Good
by Peter Greer
WHY I LIKE IT
I’m surprised by how much I love this book. I was especially served by his chapter “When Ministry Becomes Your Mistress.” Greer's transparency refreshes me and his warnings help me assess the times I prioritize ministry or service over my family. When I can evaluate effectively and say no in faith, I’m much more productive than when I’m running myself thin and juggling too much. I enjoy the entire book.
