**Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul by John and Stasi Eldredge

This was one of the most impactful books for me to read as I was reaffirming my identity in Christ. In my almost 23 years, the three days I spent reading this book are a vivid and life-giving memory for me. Partly because I spent those three days sitting on a beach in the Philippines resting and reading. But mostly because God used this book to romance me and fall in love with him all over again. Unlike how many books for women tell you “how to be a better godly woman,” this read affirms our identity in Christ and the amazing love God has for us as women.
