Best Books for Women’s Leaders



Reading is one way we continue to learn as leaders. I recently asked some seasoned women’s ministry leaders, as well as some younger ones, what is the one book (HINT: it was VERY hard getting them to only submit one!) you would recommend to a new leader as essential to her walk with Christ and/or her leading a ministry for women. 

Below is the list of those books they suggested. I hope this will help you whether you are a new or more seasoned leader. Perhaps you will add some of these to your growing library of resources for leaders.
