#1 Transformation of the Inner Man by John Loren & Paula Sandford
This book is AMAZING!!!!! It started me on the journey of peeling back the layers of thoughts that were directing my life in ways that I no longer wanted to live by. This book was the guide that I used to search what I was authentically thinking versus what I was outwardly feeling. It showed me how much my relationship with Jesus had been based on my performance, where God has established our relationship on intimacy and acceptance.
#2 Restoring the Foundations - Biblical Counseling
Have you ever been backed into a corner and you can't see any way out? Restoring the Foundations was the key for me. They took the very principles that I learned in Transformation of the Inner Man and amplified it with the power of confessing to another believer. The counselors that I worked with shared biblical and prophetic insight into the emotional struggles I was having, giving me tools to address any new issues in the future. They helped me come out of a mentally and emotionally dark place. You can find out more about this ministry at http://rtfi.org/
#3 The Art of Thinking Brillantly by Graham Cooke
I think I listened to this 6 CD set about 10 times. Each time I knew that I didn't fully receive all the wisdom that Graham was sharing. The Ari of Thinking Brillantly focuses the believer in Jesus Christ on all of the wonderful ways that God loves us and why we have so much to be joyful and hopeful about. This CD set was a life changer for me as one day after listening to it, I felt that the depression I had struggled with for so long had been lifted off. I could now see the sunshine and smile for hope and joy were beginning again.

#4 An Invitation to the Supernatural Life by Michele Perry
Have you ever been JEALOUS of the way that other people hear God speak, how they have visions, or the miraculous experiences they have? Well, I have!!! And because of my envy, I was denying and degrading how I was hearing and seeing God. This book brought joy to the way I experience God. Not that I'm not still hungry to see, hear, and experience Him more, but I now value my interactions with him. And because of the value I have place on the interactions, I hear and see Him more than I ever have. This book will also expose you to how we can use our imagination to experience Him fuller. This is a MUST READ!
