Building Radical Authenticity, Healthy Connection, and Rooted Identity:

Healing and dealing with Greif, Trauma, Loss, and Hardship:

Where Is God When It Hurts?, by Philip Yancey

Grace: The Power To Change by Dr. James B. Richards (Author) GRACE! Only by realizing you can't change... can God finally change you from the inside out. A great read for addicts especially.

Secrets of the Secret Place by Bob Sorge (Author) How to live a life of non-religious quiet times. 

The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity by William P. Young (Author). This is technically fiction but placed here because it's an allegory with profound truths and healing.

Getting Physically Healthier

When it comes to food, here's the bottom line: Eat Meat, Healthy Fats, and Veggies and Fruit. Cut out Grains, Dairy, and all added sweeteners (even monk fruit and stevia). To find out why go on a Whole30. 

It Starts with Food: Discover the Whole30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways, by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig ( #Whole30). Although there are about 200 pages of sceince and data, it's written for the laymen. Very easy to understand. It will radically change your relationship with food forever. And wait until you see all the ways the FDA has lied to you! 

The Ketogenic Bible: The Authoritative Guide to Ketosis by Jacob Wilson  (Author), Ryan Lowery  (Author). Much more science and history packed, but full of really great information. An intermediate read, but fascinating details about how the entire modern American diet was based on a lie and bad science.
