A Different Kind of Courage

Sarah Holman

“Why did my life have to be full of secrets?”

After three years in England, William Landor returns to Boston in 1774, little knowing the events that are about to unfold.

England has issued an ultimatum: pay for the tea that was destroyed in the Boston Tea Party, or the Port of Boston will be closed. William knows that this will have a devastating effect on his hometown, which is so dependent on the sea. However, he finds himself in the middle of the political struggle he wanted to avoid.

William’s father is a merchant and loyal to the king and is furious at what the rebels of Boston have cost him. He would like nothing more than to rid the city of their poisonous influence. Meanwhile, William’s best friend, Dr. Joseph Warren, is one of the leaders of rebels, or Whigs as they call themselves.

As if his life was not complicated enough, he meets a fiery indentured servant who tugs at his heart as well as his loyalty. When he is confronted by the consequences of his many secrets, he has to make a choice whether or not to tell the truth. Does he have the kind of courage it will take?

Godsmacked: A Souljourner's Guide to the Heart of God

Godsmacked: A Souljourner’s Guide to the Heart of God

Wendell Burton

“I believe Wendell’s story will encourage and inspire every reader to understand just how good and faithful God is, particularly to those who are looking for a deeper understanding of Him and His purpose for their lives….” -From the Foreword by JOEL OSTEEN

In the fall of 1973 a young Hollywood actor leaves behind his career and celebrity, embarking on a spiritual quest to the exotic, beautiful and seductive land of India, journal in hand. The trip is a culmination of three years of intense self-examination and spiritual exploration that has taken him through a maze of religions and new age sects. His goal is simple: He seeks what the Hindu’s call “Anubhava”, or “truth, directly experienced”, as if meeting God face to face.

It’s an ambitious adventure as he travels the sub-continent from one end to the other with his mentor, Charles, and another dozen or so fellow seekers, encountering along the way many famous and not so famous mystics, swamis and gurus, including Satya Sai Baba, the miracle worker and avatar, worshiped as God incarnate by millions. And, oddly enough, he frequently runs into Christians who witness to him about Jesus. Although unappreciative of their intrusions, he is nevertheless reminded of his childhood faith and begins reading a Gideon bible to find out more about Jesus.

After several months of this fast paced magical mystery tour, the pilgrimage finally ends and he returns to Hollywood with a deep sense of disappointment, feeling like he has been to the edge of the world to find God and truth, only to come home empty handed and unchanged. Then, through a simple invitation to a small Bible study in the Hollywood Hills, he is reintroduced to Jesus and surrenders his life to Him. This true account concludes on a street corner a few years later, as he witnesses to a young unbeliever. Overviewing all that God has done in his life, Wendell realizes that his original quest, a direct experience of God’s truth has indeed been completely fulfilled in Jesus.

Mended: Pieces of a Life Made Whole

Mended: Pieces of a Life Made Whole

Angie Smith

We love to cheer for the underdog and believe to our core that every life makes a difference. And we are right. There is no one God can’t use and no one whose brokenness is too broken for God. We know this is true for our friends when we want to encourage them. Yet, when it comes to the places of our innermost sense of shame and regret, we often wonder if it is really true that God can work all things together for good for those who love Him.

Angie Smith is one who was quick to encourage a friend, but struggled to believe that God could truly make something spectacular out of her broken- ness and disappointments. Responding to God’s leading to both break and reconstruct a simple pitcher, she reflected:

It was as though God were saying, here you are, Angie. You are mended. You are filled with my Spirit, and I am asking you to pour yourself out.

The image of my life as a broken pitcher was beautiful to me, but at the same time, it was hard to look at all of the cracks. I ran my fingers along them and told Him I wish it had been different. How I wished I had always loved Him, always obeyed Him, always sought Him the way I should. I was mad at the imperfections, years wasted, gaping holes where it should be smooth. But God, my ever-gracious God, was gentle and yet convicting as He explained.

My dearest Angie. How do you think the world has seen me? If it wasn’t for the cracks, I couldn’t seep out the way I do. I chose the pitcher. I chose you, just as you are.

Mended takes you on a journey to show how faith lived in the regular events of daily life is all that it takes to be a part of creating God’s picture of redemption in your life and those around you. Your life does make a difference—because of how He is magnified in the cracks.

Radically Normal

Radically Normal

Josh Kelley

Do you feel that your life is pleasing to God—almost? When you hear about pastors, missionaries, and popular speakers, do you feel just a bit second-class, as if your life appears lukewarm and not as radical as theirs?

You’re not alone. A vague sense of guilt is common in the church. We know God’s grace is the key to eternal life, but it’s so much more than that—it’s the key to a joy-filled walk with Him every moment. Josh Kelley shows why you don’t have to give away everything you own to be a fully committed follower of Jesus Christ. He demonstrates that…

God is crazy about you right where you are.
You are just as important as any other member of Christ’s body.
The work you do every day can be pleasing to God.

Discover the joy of radical obedience to Christ in your normal, everyday life.

Better Than My Dreams: Finding What You Long For Where You Might Not Think to Look

Better Than My Dreams: Finding What You Long For Where You Might Not Think to Look

Paula Rinehart

The story of everywoman’s emotional and spiritual journey, helping her release stored up false hopes and preconceived notions by replacing them with the wonderful reality God is weaving into her life.

Every morning we face the day with a set of expectations about how things will or should be. Author Paula Rinehart says, “The oddest part about our mental images is that we don’t know they are there until the video of our lives plays out in a different fashion.” Offering a radical shift in perspective, Paula guides readers to a fresh discovery that the story of our lives may look vastly different than what we anticipated-but that it’s a good thing.

Better Than My Dreams charts a course that enables a woman to jettison her old baggage and to discover that what God is creating might be better than she ever dreamed for herself, where fellowship with Christ, rather than fulfillment of dreams, is the real prize. This deeper awareness, that God knows what He’s doing with our lives, allows us to truly let go and enjoy the trip as we learn to live, love, and embrace whatever comes.

Better Than My Dreams helps women:

face their fear of disappointment
deal with life’s disturbing interruptions
own their own stuff
find the freedom to love difficult people
