Inspirational Books For Women

inspirational Books For Women is a great page to find books women will love to inspire them, motivate them, and find authors who continually give women quality books in, both fiction and non-fiction formats, Christian and non-denominational literature.

This whole page is a labor of love to share with each of you the vast amount of supportive and inspirational authors we have access to. Imagine having to face today's challenges believing we are all alone. Some of us do not need to try hard to imagine this. Many of us have felt that way.

Share your journey. Read about the journeys of others. Look for the similarities. Be empowered by the sharing of our stories and the hope we together can materialize to meet the challenges we face.

If you love to read and want the books you read to be substantially contributing, for the good to your health and well being, you have come to the right place.

When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times (Shambhala Classics)
When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times (Shambhala Classics)

A journey into our belief systems which say we should 'put it all back together' when it falls apart. The realization that when it is all 'apart' there are opportunities for deeper healing than we have ever realized before. I enjoyed this so much I wanted to have a copy of my own.


Reading Recommendations

These are books which have helped me to work through some of the challenges in my life. They are easy to read, enlightening, and most of all have guided me to a deeper understanding of myself, my expectations, my reactions to life, and ultimately how to live a balanced and happy life.

That kind of joy that is so deeply planted in our hearts that we do not get shaken by any of the storms of life. Well... not to the extent that we have in the past. I have.

It is an honor to share these amazing women authors who write to inspire us all. You will also find remarkable men authors who have stepped out of the disillusion this world has created and into the light of human kindness, love, and nurturing.

Head to Heart: Mindfulness Moments for Every Day
Head to Heart: Mindfulness Moments for Every Day

My friend Jenifer Madson (author of Living The Promises) has an amazing new book out now!


Head to Heart - by Jenifer Madson

If you loved "Living the Promises" you are going to love this new release by the same author. I met Jen for coffee in Denver in the summer of 2012. She is humble and vibrant.

Her work with authors is brilliant and compassionate. She has been my online friends since 2006. It was delightful to meet up with her face to face while I was passing through Colorado.

Now... The newest book she has published is ready (2014). Both "Living the Promises" and "Head to Heart" are remarkably inspirational books for women (and men).

The 5 Love Languages:

The Secret to Love That Lasts

You know me... I have nine 'daily' reflections books here and there around my home (and I read them each everyday). I am reading three 'story' novels at the same time, have at least two non-fiction books checked out from the library on any given day, and I have my consistent reads to boot.

Where is the time to find something NEW? That is the beauty of it. There are 24 hours in a day folks. Sometimes I hear people saying 'there are only...' but when we really look at how we use the 24 hours we have it can boggle your mind how much of that time is not managed well.

This may seem an odd ''trade'' because what I just said will seem a contradiction. I think the term "managed well'' needs redefined.

For example:

Today I will trade the 20 minutes I spent worrying about tomorrow with a 20 minute soak in a salt bath.

'managing time' for me means 'being' as well as 'doing' with the time I have in a day. That soak will benefit me in the 'doing' moments of the day (which is another trade)

Today I will trade the hour I spent 'extra' on a task I wasn't happy to do for half the time when my attitude about the task is changed. I might read for 15 minutes to adjust my attitude. Then the task will 'happen' faster because I can focus on 'this moment' rather than how much I want to finish and how much I don't like it.

I believe we need to discover how we communicate with ourselves about 'being' and 'doing' and one way to do this is to discover how we nurture ourselves (how we love ourselves).

Question About These Books

Of the 8 micro book reviews on this page how many of the books have you already read?

May Cause Miracles: A 40-Day Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Radical Change and Unlimited Happiness
May Cause Miracles: A 40-Day Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Radical Change and Unlimited Happiness

Is it going to work?

The author is using principles from A Course in Miracles combined with personal experience in the transition.


May Cause Miracles -- Gabrielle Bernstein

A dear friend recommended this for me to read. I read the title "May Cause Miracles: A 40-Day Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Radical Change and Unlimited Happiness" and was sure she was right. Who wouldn't want to take the chance of causing a miracle?

If you are looking for a book to give you insight into a way to make a major shift in your thinking and your results then this is the book you are looking for. "May Cause Miracles" will take you step by step on a journey to make small shifts over a course of 40 days so the major shift isn't as daunting and your results will be a NEW approach to your life, your thought life, and your victory over just about anything you can imagine.

In today's news we see a lot about a major shift in the way humanity is operating on this plane of existence and those shifts are transformative for the planet. This may be one way to become a part of that major shift in easy to take steps day by day.

DIVINE: The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles (LAW OF DIVINE COMPENSATION)
DIVINE: The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles (LAW OF DIVINE COMPENSATION)

So... to follow up I was stuck on each page, page after page, and indeed her perspective is uplifting, smart, wise, and most of all PERMISSION to think in a new way and really take a new approach to aging.



I picked up a book. I recognized the author's name and had wondered about her work. Marianne Williamson quotes had flooded my social media feeds for some time by now.

Years of reading tiny portions of her positive attitude and encouragement. At some point I began wondering why I had never sat down to read a book. But, as with most authors I often wait until I really recognize them as a positive force before I bother.

This day I knew it was time to read something she wrote. From cover to cover instead of small bites from various friends. The first book I picked up that day was "The Age of Miracles : Embracing The New Midlife" and it hit me there must be something positive in this author's perspective on what I am personally experiencing.

Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress
Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress

The book, study guide with DVD and the devotional are a great set to put together and keep or give as a gift.


Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions - Book, Devotional,, and Study Guide with DVD

There are times when this world can bring us to a place where we begin to feel 'unglued' and it is nice to have a bit of guidance during these times.

Even if we generally have it all together there are times in life when changes come along that set us off balance. This is a tool to help us regain our ability to make wise choices even in the midst of that 'unglued' feeling.

Thank you so much for reading and leaving me a note. I love to hear what your favorite inspirational books for women are!

Thanks for sharing with me and with each other on this page. I read every note yet I do not always reply. I read each one and send out a cyber hug to you!

Brightest Blessings, Deb
