Groups are a great way to connect with others who are going through the same season of life you are in. But, in-between meetings can be difficult, so we have provided a list of recommended books from authors we trust. They offer words of encouragement from personal life stories, Biblical insight and knowledge, and can be a resource of continued healing and growth on your own time.
