He Is My Life: Living to Love Others as Jesus Did (Design4living)

He Is My Life: Living to Love Others as Jesus Did (Design4living)

Debbie Alsdorf

Christ’s call to love everyone is easy to accept but tough to live. While it’s a simple message, life is a bit more complicated. We all know people who test our resolve-and our nerves: a tough boss, a gossiping friend, irritating neighbors. So we change “Love one another” to “Be nice” or “Tolerate difficult people.” Yet God longs for us to experience a genuine change of heart, as His extravagant love naturally flows through us to others.

He Is My Life is a ten-week journey to enhancing our relationships with God and people. This study shares biblical insights for learning to walk in love. Each day’s selection features room for your thoughts, allowing you to journal and meditate on your personal journey. You’ll discover how to receive and share God’s love, experience healing from emotional wounds, and deepen your personal relationships.

The Design4Living series is designed for women seeking to connect God’s word with their daily life. Each guide is ideal for both individual and group study.

The Vintage Wren: Week 6

The Vintage Wren: Week 6

Chautona Havig

The Vintage Wren is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes.

Cassie Wren. Legal assistant. Convenience queen. Thrifter extraordinaire. If there was a “green police” she’d be a fugitive from eco-friendly justice.

But when a friend’s teasing feels like a challenge, Cassie accepts it. The result? One year. Twelve months. Fifty-two weeks. Three hundred sixty-five days–of green.

It seemed simple enough. Cut back on paper plates, plastic forks, and straws. Easy peasy. But when her competitive side wars against her desire for convenience, Cassie finds it’s not so easy to be “eco-friendly” and “Cassie-friendly.”

Week 6 February is in full bloom–or rather, blustery blizzards! Regardless, love is in the air as Valentine’s Day approaches, and Cassie has a lot on her plate…s.

The mystery of Cassie’s antagonistic commenter unfolds as Cassie confronts who she thinks it is, meanwhile this week’s eco-plan turns out harder than she expected.

Cassie’s car threatens to retire, Think threatens the silent treatment if she fails to call if she isn’t coming home at night, and Grandma Higgins handles the “intervention” in this episode.

But worst of all, her trip to HearthLand gets more than a little heated.

The Vintage Wren. A serial novel released in fifty-two episodes (for obvious reasons).

More Than Just Making It: Hope for the Heart of the Financially Frustrated

More Than Just Making It: Hope for the Heart of the Financially Frustrated

Erin Odom

When you’re trapped in a cycle of financial frustration, and you feel like you’ve tried everything only to end up with more month than money yet again, More Than Just Making It is your promise and pathway to thriving again.

Take it from someone who’s been there. Erin Odom grew up in the private schools and neatly manicured lawns of Upper Middle Class America, but was thrown into low-income living during the economic crash. She was a stay-at-home-mom, her husband was supporting the family on a teacher’s salary, and despite the fact that they had no debt to their name, they were scrambling to make ends meet. Suddenly Erin found herself standing in line for food stamps, turning down play dates because she couldn’t afford the gas, and ultimately walking into bankruptcy court in the eighth month of her third pregnancy.

More Than Just Making It tells the story of their breaking point, as well as the triumph of their comeback. It took hard work, creativity, and faith in God’s provision to reset their bank account as well as their hearts, but ultimately they found a new way to thrive and freedom from financial anxiety. You can do the same. Learn how Erin and her family saved enough money to put $30,000 down on a home, buy a minivan in cash, and begin sending their daughter to private Christian school. More Than Just Making It will encourage readers to rise above their circumstances, empower them with money-saving tips, and reimagine the good life as God designed it outside the myth of the American Dream.

And the Lamb Wins: Why the End of the World Is Really Good News

Biblical indicators of the end times
The return of Jesus Christ
The tribulation and the rapture
Israel’s place in the future
The true role of the antichrist

Simon examines each event through the lens of solid scripture, and shares how we can realistically and positively react to these revelations in our daily life. Most of all, we’ll find that whatever the future has in store, our hope lies beyond this world. Because no matter the end, the lamb wins.

Astonished: Recapturing the Wonder, Awe, and Mystery of Life with God

Astonished: Recapturing the Wonder, Awe, and Mystery of Life with God

Mike Erre

In Astonished, Pastor Mike Erre calls Christians away from simplistic formulas to honest and rugged faith in the mysterious and unpredictable God.

God is more about deepening the mystery of faith, not removing it. Jesus should get bigger the longer we walk with him. Life and faith should grow to be more profound and wondrous, not less.

In Astonished, you will see how we are far more comfortable with tips, steps and techniques for living, than we are with ruthlessly trusting the mysterious God of the Bible. God asks us to follow him into tension, frustration, and difficulty because he wants our trust, not just our intellectual agreement. He calls us to seek Him even as we live in awe of all that is yet to be known about Him.

Astonished is an invitation to question in a culture that wants answers, to wonder in a world with little mystery left, and to believe in what is unseen and find it beautiful.


Mike Erre is senior pastor of First Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton, California. He has previously served at both Mariners Church and Rock Harbor Church in Orange County. A graduate of Talbot School of Theology, Mike speaks at universities and conferences around the country. This is his fifth book.

The Hole in Our Gospel Special Edition: What Does God Expect of Us? The Answer That Changed My Life and Might Just Change the World

The Hole in Our Gospel Special Edition: What Does God Expect of Us? The Answer That Changed My Life and Might Just Change the World

Richard Stearns

What Does God Expect of Us?

Is our faith only about going to church, studying the Bible, and avoiding the most serious sins—or does God expect more?

Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it?

Fifteen years ago Rich Stearns came face-to-face with that question as he sat in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda, listening to the heartbreaking story of an orphaned child. Stearns’s journey there took much more than a long flight to Africa. It took answering God’s call on his life, a call that tore him out of his corner office at one of America’s most prestigious corporations—to walk with the poorest of the poor in our world.

Marking its fifth year, this anniversary edition of The Hole in Our Gospel features new content along with full-color graphics on poverty statistics, a guide for churches on short-term missions and international engagement, and an index of Scripture on poverty, justice, faith in action, and more. The Hole in Our Gospel changed people’s lives, and some of those personal accounts also appear in this anniversary edition. Stearns’s compelling story demonstrates that the whole gospel was always meant to be a world-changing, social revolution, a revolution that begins with each one of us.

ECPA 2010 Christian Book of the Year Award Winner!

“Read this compelling story and urgent call for change—Richard Stearns is a contemporary Amos crying ‘let justice roll down like waters. . . .’ Justice is a serious gospel-prophetic mandate. Far too many American Christians for too long a time have left the cause to ‘others.’ Read it as an altar call.” —Eugene H. Peterson, translator of The Message; and Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College

“Rich Stearns calls us to exhilarating obedience to God’s life-altering, world-changing command to reflect his love to our neighbors at home and globally. The Hole in Our Gospel is imbued with the hope of what is possible when God’s people are transformed to live radically in light of his great love.” —Gary Haugen, president & CEO, International Justice Mission

“Richard Stearns is quite simply one of the finest leaders I have ever known. . . . When he became president of World Vision, I had a front row seat to witness the way God used his mind and heart to inspire thousands. . . . The Hole in Our Gospel will call you to a higher level of discipleship. . . . Now is the time . . . Richard Stearns has the strategy . . . your move!” —Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

“World Vision plays a strategic role on our globe. As the largest relief organization in the history of the world, it initiates care and responds to crisis. Rich Stearns navigates this mercy mission with great skill. His book urges us to think again about the opportunity to love our neighbor and comfort the afflicted. His message is timely and needed. May God bless him, the mission of World Vision, and all who embrace it.” —Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author

“An urgent, powerful summons to live like Jesus. Stearns weaves solid theology, moving stories, and his own journey of faith into a compelling call to live the whole Gospel. Highly recommended!” —Ronald J. Sider, president, Evangelicals for Social Action; and author of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger

“With passionate urging and earnestness, Rich Stearns challenges Christians to embrace the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ by embracing the neediest and most vulnerable among us. After reading the moving stories, the compelling facts and figures, Stearns’s excellent application of the Scripture, and his own experiences at World Vision, you will no doubt be asking yourself: What should I do?” —Chuck Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship

The Golden Braid

The Golden Braid

Melanie Dickerson

From New York Times bestselling author comes The Golden Braid!

The one who needs rescuing isn’t always the one in the tower.

Rapunzel can throw a knife better than any man. She paints beautiful flowering vines on the walls of her plaster houses. She sings so sweetly she can coax even a beast to sleep. But there are two things she is afraid her mother might never allow her to do: learn to read and marry.

Fiercely devoted to Rapunzel, her mother is suspicious of every man who so much as looks at her daughter and warns her that no man can be trusted. After a young village farmer asks for Rapunzel’s hand in marriage, Mother decides to move them once again—this time, to the large city of Hagenheim.

The journey proves treacherous, and after being rescued by a knight—Sir Gerek—Rapunzel in turn rescues him farther down the road. As a result, Sir Gerek agrees to repay his debt to Rapunzel by teaching her to read. Could there be more to this knight than his arrogance and desire to marry for riches and position?

As Rapunzel acclimates to life in a new city, she uncovers a mystery that will forever change her life. In this Rapunzel story unlike any other, a world of secrets and treachery is about to be revealed after seventeen years of lies. How will Rapunzel finally take control of her own destiny? And who will prove faithful to a lowly peasant girl with no one to turn to?

“The Golden Braid is a delightful, page-turning retelling of the story of Rapunzel. Dickerson brings this familiar fairy tale to life with a fresh and unique plot that is full of complex characters, a sweet romance, and danger at every turn. Rapunzel’s search to understand her place in the medieval world is a timeless identity struggle that modern readers will relate to. Her growing courage and faith are inspirational and will have readers cheering her on and sad to see the story come to an end.”
