by Lisa Whelchel
This book is great if you’re new to Bible study or need some new ideas to dig deep into God’s Word. Lisa walks you through 20 different Bible study methods over the course of three months that can take as little as 15 min a day. At the beginning, she walks with you and by the last month you’re applying the methods yourself. I really love all the fresh ideas this book gives to help you walk with God daily.
What really stood out to me about this Bible is it’s 52 devotions. They are divided up into 1, 5, and 10 minute sections, so no matter how much time you have, you can get into God’s word. I really like how there is very little “man” and a lot of God in these devotions. If you’re in the market for a Bible right now, I would definitely check this one out.

This book gives you a good guide to follow if you’d like to learn how to pray scripture. It has each day broken down into several different topics with scripture inspirations. You can pray the prayer Lisa has written or even add your own. No matter how much time you have for prayer, this book can adapt. If you would like a book that help you to pray more specific prayers, check this book out!

This book is another one of my favorite short devotional books. Each devotion has a quote, a verse, and a short story to get you thinking about the verse’s application. Even when I feel like I have no time for quite time in the mornings, I find I can sit down with this book for 2-5 min and still have something to consider throughout my day. If you’re just starting making daily quiet time a priority or find yourself in a season where you don’t have much time, this book can help.

by Max Lucado
God’s Inspirational Promise Book is excerpts from Max Lucado’s books arranged according to topic as short devos and paired with corresponding verses. I have used this book as a quick devo when I only have a few minutes, and as a starting place when I’m hurting and need someone to help guide me back to God. Either way this book has helped me through several seasons of life, and is one of my favorites on my book shelf.

If you’d like to go deeper with Exodus or struggling with finding freedom in an area of your life, check this study out!
