Books Description:

Christopher and Hilda Talley were living what they thought was the American dream. They had two beautiful and healthy daughters, a comfortable home, cars, clothes, food on the table, a wonderful faith community, and two terrific jobs they loved. They played at life just as hard as they worked for their lifestyle, traveling in the United States and to foreign lands as often as possible. But in 1999, that all came crashing down. Hilda went from a happy and healthy person to someone who struggles for every breath she takes, after an inadequately trained pesticide tech came into her office. Two minutes after he left, she was fighting for her life. The chemical permanently damaged her lungs and vocal cords and led to two debilitating diseases: reactive airways dysfunction syndrome and vocal cord dysfunction. Their family life changed instantly. In God in the Midst of Thorns, Christopher and Hilda share their story, a story intertwined with the testament of God’s love and the power of Christian community, as they began their journey of learning to live a new normal. The Talleys discuss how, in their struggle for understanding, they both found a new and deeper relationship with God.

Books Description:

Life and death struggles, a common thread that connects us as human beings, are vividly revealed in this inspirational and unforgettable true story as told by a mother and her daughter of their babies, born with life threatening birth defects. Swept away on an uncharted and treacherous journey one thing clearly emerges, God, the ultimate thread that held them together through their darkest hours, was waiting for them there. He gave them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness so He might be glorified through their babies’ life and death struggles. (Isaiah 61: 3b) At every bend in the road lives were forever changed. The baby boy unable to ever speak a word about what he endured in his fight for life went to his grave never knowing what a giant impression his tiny handprint had left on every heart he touched...leaving this world a better place than he found it. For the little girl, the veil separating Heaven and Earth was lifted . . . “Mommy, I see an angel!” Hoping to get a glimpse, her mommy searched the hospital room eagerly. “Where do you see an angel?” her mommy asked. She pointed overhead, “Up there . . . in the corner of my room . . . one angel with big, pink wings.” Although her mommy didn’t see the Heavenly being, together they felt the comfort of its presence. On their timeless journey of faith, hope, and love, their loving God went with them through it all: healing hearts, changing lives, sharing their deepest sorrows, and sending his angels to comfort and help them. Their stories, formed in the crucible of life and death struggles, were transformed by the grace of God into a thing of beauty. “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time.” (Ecclesiastes 3: 11a, KJV)

Books Description:

In this book, you're going to read about a different kind of love story. It's a love story each and every one of us is currently playing a role in--whether we're aware of it or not. And truth be told, it's scary-critical that we stay tuned-in to this love story. Because outside of a growing relationship with your heavenly Father, no other love (or lack of love) has the potential to improve or implode your life like the love that you have for you. For anyone who has ever struggled with their identity, Landra Young Hughes has a radically simple message: give up. Specifically, give up your need to be in control of how other people see you. Instead, let God's words--not yours and not others'--define you. Through her own deeply personal story of trying to control her circumstances and others' perceptions of her through an eating disorder, Landra points the way toward a life free from self-obsession and self-resentment. She shows you how to listen to God's voice, let go of the struggle for perfection, and live authentically from your deepest self.

Books Description:

Your Neighbor's Hymnal provides a winsome and thoughtful exploration of popular music, from rock to hip-hop to metal to soul, as a vital source contemporary culture continues to go to learn about faith, hope, and love. Where some Christians have kept their focus only on a hymnal found in their church or formed by the genre of Contemporary Christian Music, Keuss argues that your neighbor's hymnal is filled with great music that God is using and deserves a deeper listen. Offering forty songs spanning time and genres, each section includes a number of representative reflections on the history and artist that created the song, reflections on its lyrical content, and theological and biblical connections that will hopefully show some ways in which the song illustrates how your neighbor is hearing, seeking, and finding faith, hope, and love through popular music. This book can be approached in a number of ways. As an introduction to this stream of popular culture, the overviews and short introductions to each song provide a glossary useful in courses needing texts in theology and popular culture. For use with church groups, whether adult bible studies or youth groups, Your Neighbor's Hymnal provides points of reference for connecting key aspects of the Christian faith with illustrations readily available for discussion. For interested music listeners, the book will provide a means of giving voice to their own musings on faith. As with faith, good music is meant to be shared, and Your Neighbor's Hymnal offers a wonderful opportunity to do both.

Books Description:

“This book—the fullness, depth, and beauty of Sarah Bessey’s faith and artistic genius—is a miracle” (Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love Warrior) and an unforgettable and life-affirming exploration of how trauma can strengthen your faith and miracles can be found in unexpected places. In the brief instant Sarah Bessey realized that her minivan was, inevitably, going to hit the car on the highway on the bright, clear day of the crash, she knew intuitively that it would have life-changing consequences. But as she navigated the winding path from her life before the accident—as a popular author, preacher, and loving wife and mother—to her new life after, inhabiting a body that no longer felt like her own, she found that the most unexpected result was how it shook her deeply rooted faith, upending everything she thought she knew and held so dearly. Weaving together theology and memoir, Sarah delivers “a well-written reminder of seeing the miracles in life’s highs and lows” (Library Journal). The road of healing leads to Rome where she met the Pope (it’s complicated) and encountered the Holy Spirit in the last place she expected. She writes about her miraculous healing, learning to live with chronic pain, and the ways God makes us whole in the midst of suffering. She invites us to a path of knowing God that is filled with ordinary miracles, hope in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, and other completely reasonable things. Insightful, profound, and unexpected, “Sarah’s writing is so breathtaking, sometimes you think you are reading poetry. The story is so thrilling, sometimes you think you are devouring a novel. And the Spirit she describes is so compelling, you’ll swear you experienced a revival. You won’t put it down once until you close the last page” (Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author).

Books Description:

Thirty years ago, I was afraid of surrendering my life completely to trusting in the Divine. This fear is what stopped me from growing in my faith and crippled me into believing that if I did, something terrible would befall on me or my family, as a way of testing my faith. I was afraid to practice my faith and my heart was contaminated with guilt, anger and inferiority. Then something happened. I took a leap of faith and decided to join my husband in a catechist program that was being delivered at our church. Little did I know that this would be the catalyst that would move me in a direction for a new life. The program taught the meaning of scriptures and how to read and meditate upon them. One night I opened the bible to a scripture passage found in 1 John 4:18. The words, "Perfect Love casts out fear" suddenly jumped off the page and spoke to my heart directly. I knew that the Lord was speaking to me through this scripture passage and He released my fears. With this new found freedom I embarked on a journey that helped me discover my connection with God and the many ways in which He communicated to me. This book reveals my journey as God revealed His presence to me though signs and symbols, in my journal writing, meditation, prayer, past memories, through His creation in nature, the stillness around us, and through everyday miracles. In a personal way he continues to speak to me through life and death experiences. Along with my sorrows, he fills me with joy through his His peace, grace and PERFECT LOVE.

Books Description:

Since it was first published, more than seven million people have been touched by the magic of The Christmas Box, a holiday classic that is as beloved in our time as A Christmas Carol was in Dickens's. When New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans wrote The Christmas Box, he intended it as a private expression of love for his two young daughters, Jenna and Allyson. Though he often told them that he loved them, he didn't feel that they could ever really understand the depth of his feelings until they had experienced the joy of rearing their own children, and by that time their relationship would have changed forever. In writing The Christmas Box, he hoped that at some time in the future they would read the book and know of their father's love. As Evans began to write, he was amazed at the inspiration that flowed into his mind and heart. He completed the moving story of a widow and the young family who comes to live with her in less than six weeks, and bound twenty copies to give as Christmas presents to family and friends. In the following weeks, those twenty copies were shared and passed along from family to family, from friend to friend, and what began as a tale for two little girls became a message of miracles, hope, and healing for people throughout the world.

Every Christian is called to learn and respond to the Word of God. We are called to share the faith, to love, to help, and to try to respond by walking the talk. These are some of the highlights within my journey. Some of it is unique. I have seen and shared some of the wonderful things that I have lived through and been a part of. I have developed a thirst for the Holy Scriptures and started a habit of not just reading them but asking God to help me take it in. I respond to what I read and put it into action, not only changing my life but helping some of those that I see in need. I hope you enjoy it. I have enjoyed sharing the journey, and I hope you too will dig into the Bible and seek God’s help in making it part of your life.

Books Description:

Twin brothers David and Jason Benham grew up with big dreams of baseball and an even bigger trust in God. Though they attended a small high school with no baseball field, turned down a professional offer so they could attend college together, and faced more than one missed pitch and injuries, they kept dreaming, praying together on the field, and believing in God’s provision for their lives. David and Jason’s journey, from Little League to college to professional baseball and beyond, reminds us that even when we don’t know what God is up to, He’s putting together the pieces of our life’s puzzle and executing the plans He has for each of us. Miracle in Shreveport tells the story of a family’s love, the power of prayer, and a game that is truly all-American. It is also the story of brotherhood staying strong, despite the threat of comparison in a profession committed to competition. Most of all, it is the story of being faithful in small steps, honoring God in the process, and trusting His hand in our lives. In this book, the Benhams call us to remember that when we follow God’s dream for us, we find it is better than we could have ever dreamed for ourselves.

Books Description:

From the popular blogger and provocative author of Jesus Feminist comes a riveting new study of Christianity that helps you wrestle with—and sort out—your faith. In Out of Sorts, Sarah Bessey—award-winning blogger and author of Jesus Feminist, which was hailed as “lucid, compelling, and beautifully written” (Frank Viola, author of God’s Favorite Place on Earth)—helps us grapple with core Christian issues using a mixture of beautiful storytelling and biblical teaching, a style well described as “narrative theology.” As she candidly shares her wrestlings with core issues—such as who Jesus is, what place the Church has in our lives, how to disagree yet remain within a community, and how to love the Bible for what it is rather than what we want it to be—she teaches us how to walk courageously through our own tough questions. In the process of gently helping us sort things out, Bessey teaches us how to be as comfortable with uncertainty as we are with solid answers. And as we learn to hold questions in one hand and answers in the other, we discover new depths of faith that will remain secure even through the storms of life.

Books Description:

The daily devotions on prayer for physical healing continue in Week 6! Sickness and miraculous healing are shrouded in mystery. Not many know how to pray for themselves or a loved one when they are sick. Not only that, most people don’t feel confident that God is willing to help them when they pray. After John W. Nichols (author of GOD is HERE) discovered his daughter had many symptoms of autism, he began reading the Bible with new eyes, trying to understand healing for today. Soon he felt impressed to fast for 7 weeks and pray through Scriptures about healing daily. Healing is Here: A 49-Day Devotional Journey of Healing Through the Bible, compiles the author’s notes and prayers during his fast. It has been organized to apply to anyone who wants to learn about healing at their own pace, with Scriptural support, suggested prayers, and journaling prompts. (There is no requirement to fast while going through this devotional) John systematically teaches the mysteries he has unlocked over the course of four years of studying and applying Biblical Christian healing. He wrote this devotional with the hope of helping others who are in similar circumstances: those who desperately need healing, aren’t sure how to pray, and are wondering if God is willing to help. Week 6 covers verses that reveal: • Healing and miracles came alongside teaching, the gospel, the kingdom • How we put the enemy under our feet • How harmful personal connections effect sickness • What part does fasting have to do with healing • What doubt does to healing • How to minister healing like people in the Bible • How to continue praying even if you aren’t seeing results Over the course of the full 49 days you will discover: • What is God and Jesus’s will regarding healing • How Jesus fulfilled prophetic verses of healing • How God’s will is accomplished • What we can learn from the remarkable similarity between salvation and healing • What do covenants have to do with sickness and healing • How to receive the same blessings God promised His people in the Bible • How God disciplines and teaches us • What faith has to do with healing • What we can learn about God by looking at Jesus in the gospels • How sin and righteousness affects healing • What the Bible teaches us about evil spirits • How Jesus showed us to fight the enemy, and how to be equipped for that fight • How Satan attacks, and what we can do about it • What Jesus told His disciples (and us) to do • What is the right atmosphere for healing • How to exercise and apply Jesus’s name, authority, anointing, and blood • How fear and doubt play into sickness and how to overcome them • How to heal the soul (thoughts and emotions) • What are the promises and benefits of God, and how to claim them • How fasting affects healing • Many surprising (and practical) elements of healing seen in the Bible which can be applied today Don’t forget to get the free resources linked within the book! "What I love about this devotional is that it answers questions about healing (mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally) in such a relatable way. Each devotional is loaded with Bible verses, a prayer and thought provoking questions to help you journal your journey to healing and restoration. This is a must read for anyone from the new believer to the person that's walked with Christ their whole life. You will gain new understanding of the Scriptures and insight into who God is and how He wants to heal you." — Chris Hendrix, Author of Devotional Guide to Stretching Your Faith, Devotions By Chris, DevotionsByChris.com "Healing is Here is a powerful resource for those pursuing physical healing in their bodies. Written with gentleness and humility, he addresses so many deep concepts in a way that quietly unravels the bad theology we've so often been taught. Jesus truly was Healer while on earth, and His Father is no different. This book is written in an accessible weekly format, so the ideas can be revisited easily as necessary. Healing is part of our portion as believers, so don't live another day sick. Pick up this book and get grounded in what the eternal Word has to say about wholeness in your body!" — Andrea Joy Moede, Writer, Coach, Speaker, Author of Misunderstood, Path of Truth, and God is Light, AndreaJoy.org "I had such a leap in my spirit that this book is going to be so anointed for the times we are in. The introduction and first devotional gave me a hunger to know more about healing." — Danielle Edens, Author of Breaking Out of the Cocoon, Founder of Second Chance Dreamers "John Nichols is an example of a young man whose life has been marvelously transformed when he surrendered to Christ. He now lives to share what he has learned with others. His Bible-based teaching will lead every follower of Jesus into a deeper, more joyful walk." — Joanne Hillman, Author of Listening Prayer, A Perfect Marriage, Song of Salome, and more, JoanneHillman.com
