Staying focused on our personal priorities during busy seasons is one of the most common challenges for us as women in leadership. It is so easy to get swept up in the hype of comparison or hustle of climbing the ladder, no matter which wall it's leaning against.
One of the best ways I stay focused on what is most important to me in my personal definition of success is to nurture my mind and soul with good books. I listen to a book every week or two, and these three books have helped me get back on track with the road was getting blurry (or this traveler was just getting weary!)
1. Grace Over Grind by Shae Bynes
The purpose of Grace Over Grind is to challenge you, shift your thinking, and transform the way that you work so that you can glorify God and experience immeasurably more than you could ask or imagine in your business.
One of my favorite quotes from this book is, "Live within the grace of one day only. That’s how we experience the sufficiency of God’s grace.”

2. Without Rival by Lisa Bevere
From Without Rival you'll learn how to stop seeing others as rivals and make the deep connections with your Creator you long for--connections that hold the promise of true identity and intimacy.
One of my favorite quotes from this book is, “Knowing who you are is vastly more important than knowing where you are going or even what you can do. Because he is your Creator, God has quite a bit to say to you about who you are. And who you truly are carries within it the revelation of what you could be.”

3. An Intentional Life by Karen Stott
This book declares that a joy-filled life is possible...And you can have it right where you are. Those desires that tug on your heart and keep you up at night—the big dreams, grand adventures, new experiences—require purpose and planning, time and effort.
One of my favorite quotes from this book is, "A calling isn’t a destination. It’s a lifestyle. It’s simply responding to His invitation with one more step of faith, one more surrender, one more yes."

What are some of your favorites? I’d love to hear them — especially if you’re in a season of refocusing on your priorities. DM me and let me know!
