Purifying the Mind, Body, and Spirit with Our: Readings

Readings

Hello girlies! Sorry I didn’t get this posted yesterday. Anyways, welcome to post #3 of my series: PMBS (Purifying the Mind, Body, and Spirit)! You can read post #1 HERE and #2 HERE.

Sometimes, it can be hard to find a clean book to be engrossed in. Or, it can be hard to find a clean blog or magazine to follow or subscribe to. Because that is one of the areas we can purify ourselves in as well; what we read.

I will separate this post into three sections: 1, books; 2, blogs; and 3, magazines for Christian girls to read.

Unless you are not allowed/cannot/do not want to read anything with magic or fantasy-ish things (like elves and light catchers {practically magic wands}), this is a clean NYT Bestseller series that I personally LOVE.

– The Mysterious Benedict Society Series

There are four books in this series, and it strangely all makes sense. Such an interesting idea of what might happen if four kids saved the world was never found but in this series.

– The Anne of Greene Gables Series

There are many (eight in total) books in this series. L. M. Montgomery did a great job on every one. I recently found and bought Rainbow Valley, the second to last book in the series of Anne and her children. It wasn’t as good as the first one (when is it ever?) but I enjoyed it very much!

A Question of Honor (Questions of War #1)

I beta-read for this indie published book, and I LOVE it! Jesseca did such an amazing job! A clean read set in the WWII times for ages 12+.

– The Love Comes Softly Series

These books (eight in all) are very good if you like historical fiction (which I do). I would recommend this series to girls 12+ (just like A Question of Honor) just because it was originally intended to be Women’s Fiction and YA Fiction.

  • Blogs

– Girl Defined

I love to read this blog so much! Written by two young women serving God in their 20s, this is one organization I couldn’t keep off my list. They do post about stuff for older teen girls (sex, relationships, marriage, etc.) but there is content appropriate for younger young women here as well. 🙂

Scattered Journal Pages

An amazing teen named Amanda shares her thoughts on, well, everything here. Although this started out as more of a blog for teens to read, it has reached my heart as a kind of ministry that Amanda started.

A Purpose and a Promise

Emily is a beautiful poet and a daughter of God who fills her posts with the love of our Savior and the (amazing) rhyming of poetry.

Having a Heart Like His

Hosanna Emily posts on this blog about faith, writing, and everything in between. She has indie published one book (The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser) that I enjoyed very well!

Madi Grace

Oh. my. word. Have you ever heard of a blog SO amazing? I mean, DEVIL BUTT KICKING CLASSES every Monday??!! Yes, please!!!! Madi posts about writing, life, devil butt-kicking, and tons of other things on her personal blog, but you can also find her on her doll blog @ Delightful World of Dolls.

Ok, this isn’t technically a magazine, it’s actually a book, but I didn’t have room up in the books section, so. 😉

Cover Up for Christ

Ok, maybe this isn’t a magazine either, but it’s an amazing organization that I had to fit somewhere in this post. 😛

Stone Soup

This is a really good (actual) magazine! It is a children’s magazine featuring stories, art, poems, and book reviews from children under thirteen all over the US. I actually submitted my first short to them over a year ago, got it accepted and published in their Nov./Dec. 2016 issue!

Crown of Beauty Magazine

This is an e-magazine that I heard about from a friend a while back and decided to check out. Haven’t got a chance to read much yet, but so far so good. 😉

Set Apart Girl

This is another e-magazine that I found not too long ago and can’t wait to read more of. 😀

Thanks for reading the third post in my series! If you skimmed a little, that’s fine; it was long anyways. 😉 Chow for now!

Walking on God’s Path – 3 Magazines for God’s Daughters

magazines for god's daughters.jpg

Even harder than finding good books, and maybe even harder then finding good movies and music, is finding good magazines.

I love to get a magazine in my mail box each month. Do you? I’m going to share with you 3 good magazines for God’s Daughters.

Nature Friend

I love this magazine! It has so much in it. It has games, a drawing lesson, and so much more! They have a reader’s issue every year, and for a little more money each month, I think about two dollars, you can add a study guide, with gardening tips, recipes, and writing lessons! They also hide little pictures such as a squirrel and an acorn in each issue, and you have to try to find them.

Nature Friend Magazine

Adventures in Odyssey – Clubhouse

This is a Christian magazine for boys and girls, and it is really fun. It has fun stories, and lots of other things. It also has games and sometimes recipes. There is a version for younger children, too.

Clubhouse Magazine

The King’s Princess

I actually just discovered this magazine, thanks to Madison, but it looks awesome and I signed up for it! It is an E-magazine. It is also free!

The King’s Princess Magazine

Do any of you know of any other magazines?

Have an amazing week!

This book is about three sisters who train at a dancing school and end up with different careers. There are three in the series, each about a different group of children.

“Understood Betsy” by Dorothy Canfield Fisher

This book is about a little girl who goes to live in the country with some “queer” cousins. She learns what it is like on a farm.

I hope you will enjoy these books! I loved them, and have some of them on my own bookshelf at home. Have a wonderful day!

Books, List

Walking on God’s Path: 6 Books for God’s Daughters

6-books-for-gods-daughters

Hullo, Ladies! Today I have a list of books for God’s Daughters.

Nowadays, I find it so hard to find books that contain no inappropriate content, books that don’t misuse God’s name, and so on.

When I see the new books nowadays, I don’t usually get past the summary or first couple of pages. If you will pardon me saying, there is so much trash floating around the world. And sometimes I find it hard to stay on God’s path, because I am tempted to read books that I know I should not. (I’ve read every good book I can get my hands on.)

This world is so full of things that distract us from walking God’s path.

But, we can start by reading good books. So, here, without further ado, 6 Books for God’s Daughters.

The Redwall Series

By Brian Jacques

Mr. Jacques passed away in 2011, so, unfortunately, there are only 21 or 22 books, instead of one more. There is a bit of violence, but it takes place in war times. There are also many character deaths.

The Mistmantle Chronicles

By M.I McAllister

There are five Mistmantle books. There is also a bit of violence, and two or three character deaths. DON’T GET ATTACHED TO A CERTAIN SOMEONE.

God’s Smuggler

By Brother Andrew

I was reluctant to read this book at first, don’t ask why, but when I started, I could not put it down!

The Chronicles of Narnia

By C.S Lewis

I am actually reading the series right now, and it’s awesome!

The Melendy Quarter

By Elizabeth Enright

It may also be referred to as the Four Story Mistake series. The books are called: (In order)

The Saturdays, The Four-Story Mistake, Then There Were Five, and Spider Web For Two.

The Mary Poppins series

By P. L Travers

An extraordinary Nanny, four young children, named Banks, what else could you want?!

Did you like this post? Would you like a list of MORE books for God’s Daughters?

In Christ,
