There are so many wonderful resources you can use to help you in your desire to seek "more" of Jesus. The first place to start is God's Holy Word. Be in the Bible friend. Be in it daily. And while it's great to have the Bible on an electronic device like your phone, if you are able to, try studying using a physical, printed Bible so as to minimize distractions when you spend time with the Lord in His Word. If this is not possible for you, do your best to limit distractions such as notifications. It will bless you to spend quiet, intentional, uninterrupted time in the Bible. 

Please understand that the recommended resources are not a full endorsement of the source, publisher, designer or creator but are recommended based on the specific content shared. Humans are by our very nature prone to error and sadly to sin. To the best of my ability I have researched and vetted the source of each recommended resource, but those searches are not exhaustive, infallible or everlasting... except for the Bible in correct translations.

A Note About "Resources"

YOU CAN STUDY THE BIBLE
&
LEARN TO UNDERSTAND IT.

BIBLES

My preferred translation is the English Standard Version, or ESV. I have found it easier to understand than the more traditional King James. I enjoy using this Single Column Journaling Bible during church and weekly Bible Study. The single columns located on the outside of each page give sufficient room for note taking - especially if you write small. 

This style is also available in a large type version.  

You can find this version and style online through retailers like ChristianBook.com and also on Amazon.

For at home studying I prefer to use an Interleaved edition of the ESV. An interleaved Bible has a blank page in between each page of text, allowing for LOTS of note taking. 

This style of of Bible is said to have been created by Sarah Edwards, the wife of 18th century theologian and preacher Jonathan Edwards

You can find this version and style online through retailers like ChristianBook.com and also on Amazon.

BOOKS

If you are interested in learning about Christian theology and being able to share what you believe with others, this book from Christian author, speaker and podcaster Phylicia Masonheimer is a wonderful resource.

You can find additional resources from Phylicia online on her website at phylicianmasonheimer.com and through her ministry, Every Woman a Theologian.

Bob Goff has long been one of my favorite authors and a man who is certainly on a mission to live undistracted. Bob is constantly and joyfully pushing people closer to Jesus.

Undistracted is one of my favorite "Bob" books and is a quick and easy read that will have you rethinking how you can make and life your life undistracted and focused on what matters most.
