Meditations on Money: A 365 Day Devotional Quest Through the Bible (Deborah Ehrfurth) - Typically available only through third-party sellers on Amazon or eBay. Sometimes the version they have is a "seconds" but it's a great book, if you don't mind perhaps getting a poorly bound copy.

Entrusted With Money: A 90 Day Workbook for Building a Healthy Relationship with Your Finances (Seth & Alexis Busetti)

Favorite Bible: Woman's Study Bible NKJV (Editors: Dorothy Patterson/Rhonda Kelly: Thomas Nelson Publishers) - You can purchase this in a multitude of cover options if you search. Mine is a leather soft cover that I gifted to my grandmother with her name imprinted. When she passed away, it was given to me so even as it's falling apart a little, it's such a keeper.
