Hey PI Girls! Time to take a break from all the books you HAD to read during school and start reading some books you SHOULD read for summer!
For anyone who really wants to dive deep into what faith is and who God is, Mere Christianity is for you.
The Screwtape Letters is an incredibly eye-opening account of our faith, our struggles with sin and so much more!

This book shows you how to take a break from the fast-paced world we live in and take some time to make a habit of spiritual devotion.
This book digs into Bethke’s views on the power of Jesus and religion. A must-read for anyone trying to figure out this whole God thing and who Jesus is.
Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality by Donald Miller

Starring Me by Krista McGee
Kara moves to sunny Orlando to audition for a part on a teen variety TV show, making acting high on her priority list and leaving her relationship with God in the dust. Then she discovers that God has much bigger plans for her, in a role only He can provide.
Both of the following books will be made into motion pictures this summer:
