Recently, I posted a poll for y'all on my Instagram asking what kind of posts you'd like to see from this blog. (If you don't follow me on Insta, my username is miss_tara_sun 😉) A lot of you guys gave some AWESOME suggestions and you bet I'll be covering all of those in posts to come!Today, I wanted to talk all things Christian music, podcasts and books. Here are some suggestions of my favorite resources for any lifestyle. I hope you enjoy!

Well... I tried to keep this post short, but naturally, I couldn't help myself...oops haha! I have too many favorites and too many reasons why I love them. To finish, let's talk about my current favorite reads!
1.) "Taking God at His Word" by Kevin DeYoungAre you struggling with trusting the Bible's words? Do you desire to know how to read and know the Bible better? Do you want to know what the Bible means to you as a Christian? Do you question the Bible's relevancy and authority? If you relate to any of those questions, get this book. Even though I've known Jesus and the Bible since I was little, this book increased my appreciation for the Bible and why it's enough, understandable and profitable for me.
2.) "Recovering the Real Lost Gospel" by Darrell L. Bock Seems like a mouthful, huh? This book isn't as intimidating as it sounds. Basically, this book is a reminder that the Bible is good news. Bock makes a startling statement that a lot of people have lost what the gospel means and have run to other things for satisfaction. This book gives a comprehensive, yet understandable, overview of what the gospel message is. It's more than just a cross and what Jesus did on the cross. Every quality of the gospel is exposed. Read this, whether you're a new Christian or a "seasoned" one.
I could go on and on about my favorite music, podcasts and books but these are just a few of my absolute favorites. I hope that if you were introduced to a new resource, that you'd take a chance on it. Thanks for listening to this mouthful of favorites! See you next time!
