Growing spiritually at camp can feel as easy as breathing! Our days are filled with devotions, praise and worship, and engaging in DMCs with others who love the Lord. But what happens once you leave the Bubble? How does a Greystone Girl grow in her faith all year long?

There’s no substitute for prayer, reading the Bible, and participating in a local church, but these days, there are so many incredible resources to help you grow spiritually no matter where you are!

Last year’s post has some great suggestions that we still stand by, and this year, we asked around to our staff and Senior campers to see what spiritual growth resources they are loving right now. Check them out, and make sure to let us know what resources have helped YOU grow in your faith this year!


  • New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp: This daily devotion book has been a camp favorite for years! It includes 365 days of gospel-centered reflections that could apply to any stage of life.
  • The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness by Tim Keller: This super short sermon-turned-book will help you find freedom in thinking of yourself less.
  • Be Thou My Vision by Jonathan Gibson: This book guides the reader through 31 days of liturgies; it’s a great “quiet time” guide for someone who wants to structure that time intentionally.
  • At His Feet Bible studies: Read through a book of the Bible with a group or by yourself. These come highly recommended to us!
  • A Long Obedience in the Same Direction by Eugene Peterson: In this book, Peterson uses the Psalms to illustrate what real-life Christian growth looks like in our instant-satisfaction society.
  • Practicing the Way by John Mark Comer: Comer’s books have always been favorites around our office, and his new book focuses on modeling our lives after Jesus.
  • Book by Book by the Bible Study Schoolhouse: This pretty book is a great jumping-off point for reading the Bible; it gives helpful context and helps you see Jesus in every book.
