Resources

This page is a collection of my favorite resources for the spiritual life. Like my own journey, this list is always in-process. Enjoy!

Books by Brita:

Want What You’ve Got! “Thou shalt not covet.” For today’s woman, there is plenty to wrestle with when it comes to applying the wisdom of the Tenth Commandment to everyday living. Teacher and retreat leader Brita Hammit invites readers on a 30-day devotional journey toward embracing what we’ve got – which is everything! – in Christ!

Trek to the Manger: Advent Devotions for Women on the Move Advent should be an adventure! One that honors tradition without bowing the knee to retail-bullying. One that embraces fun and gift-giving without breaking the bank. One that engages more of me than just my schedule and my credit card. The season of Advent may appear to have been hijacked by a relentless stream of commercial messages – but this year can be different! Instead of plodding through another stress-filled holiday, women on the move are choosing a different route to Christmas morning. 

Essentials for the Spiritual Life:

50 Ways to Pray: Practices from Many Traditions & Times This book by Teresa A. Blythe will expand your experience of God’s presence in your life!

The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People If you struggle to connect with scripture, especially the Old Testament, The Story provides a vantage point from which you can see the “big picture.” Chronologically excerpted from the NIV, The Story is the overarching narrative of the Bible for those who have ever wondered how they fit in to God’s plan. If you decide to dive in, contact Brita for information about the accompanying video links!

Enneagram:
