This is not your typical book club. Think discipleship through books.
Members of The Thirsty Girls Book Club are Christian women seeking life-changing spiritual growth in a small group setting. We are hungry for knowledge, practical application, and meaningful interaction with other thoughtful women. We do not mind hard questions, doctrinal discussions, and thinking outside of the proverbial box.
Our book list is a mix of Christian nonfiction, secular fiction with themes of significance, and biographies. Our books are chosen because they contribute to our spiritual lives. In a word, they EDIFY – to build up, to construct; to establish, or strengthen a person; to uplift, to inform or enlighten intellectually or spiritually.
