The Executions (Choctaw Tribune Series, Book 1)

The Executions (Choctaw Tribune Series, Book 1)

Sarah Elisabeth Sawyer

From an award-winning author and Choctaw storyteller comes a tale with the essence of a Native nation’s complex history while offering important lessons and renewed hope.

Who would show up for their own execution?

It’s 1892, Indian Territory. A war is brewing in the Choctaw Nation as two political parties fight out issues of old and new ways. Caught in the middle is eighteen-year-old Ruth Ann, a Choctaw who doesn’t want to see her family killed.

In a small but booming pre-statehood town, her mixed blood family owns a controversial newspaper, the Choctaw Tribune. Ruth Ann wants to help spread the word about critical issues but there is danger for a female reporter on all fronts—socially, politically, even physically.

But what is truly worth dying for? This quest leads Ruth Ann and her brother Matthew, the stubborn editor of the fledgling Choctaw Tribune, to old Choctaw ways at the farm of a condemned murderer. It also brings them to head on clashes with leading townsmen who want their reports silenced no matter what.

More killings are ahead. Who will survive to know the truth? Will truth survive?

“Among the many pleasures of Sarah Elisabeth’s writing are her attention to character, language, and period detail. In The Executions, a story grounded in history and the complexities of pre-statehood Oklahoma, she brings to life, with great heart, the compelling mix of cultures, faith, and political intrigue in the old Choctaw Nation. An intriguing read.”—Rilla Askew, author of The Mercy Seat

Excerpt

“He has to face Choctaw justice.”

Ruth Ann had seen an execution by the Lighthorsemen when she was a little girl. It had been a simple affair, but not the kind she looked forward to seeing again. From his downcast expression, she knew Matthew wasn’t either.

Centuries of feelings and thoughts brushed by her, and an ache placed itself in her heart in a way she knew would last a long, long while.

“Matt.” She paused, trying to find words that meant something, something that compared to what she felt. “What are the old ways, and how long can we keep them?”

Matthew patted the rump of his gelding and shook his head. “I can’t say for sure, Annie. I’m still figuring it out. But I have to make a decision soon. The newspaper is due out in two days.”

Your Next 24 Hours: One Day of Kindness Can Change Everything

Hal Donaldson

If asked, who among us wouldn’t say we were kind people? But kindness is often manifested in feelings of pity or sympathy–especially when others are watching–rather than in deeds. And when it comes down to it, what good does mere feeling do for the world?

Through powerful true stories of kindness lived out, this book shows readers the enormous difference they can make through small, doable acts of kindness in their families, communities, workplaces, schools, and churches. It shows how every encounter with another person is an opportunity to be kind–and a chance to change our world.

Readers of Your Next 24 Hours will find deep satisfaction and joy as they discover how they can be part of a revolution of kindness that starts with them and reaches out through every person their lives touch.

The Christmas Bargain: (A Sweet Victorian Holiday Romance) (Hardman Holidays Book 1)

Shanna Hatfield

One Old West Cinderella discovers
Prince Charming is a. . . Cowboy?

The death of her mother left Philamena Booth grieving and at the mercy of her drunken father. After spending more than a decade held captive on their run-down farm, she’s left speechless and dazed when her father strikes a bargain to settle a long overdue debt. In lieu of payment, a handsome cowboy agrees to take her. Mortified yet relieved to leave the farm, Philamena unexpectedly finds herself married to a charismatic, caring man.

Luke Granger might own Hardman’s bank and the fanciest house in this Eastern Oregon town, but he’d much rather be outside riding his horses or wrangling his herd of cattle than keeping his account books straight. In a strange, unsettling turn of events, he finds himself accepting a farmer’s daughter instead of money to cover a loan.

A Fierce Love: One Woman’s Courageous Journey to Save Her Marriage

A Fierce Love: One Woman’s Courageous Journey to Save Her Marriage

Shauna Shanks

Love is easy to give when you are getting it back. Are we still called to God’s plan of how to love when we are getting none in return? Shauna Shanks’s brave journey through obedience reveals the outcome of when we dare to follow God’s ludicrous outline for love as described in 1 Corinthians 13.

Wrecked with news of her husband’s affair and his request for a divorce, Shauna finds herself urgently faced with a decision. Does she give up and divorce her husband and move on, or does she try to fight for her marriage? The former choice seems to contradict God’s plan for how to love, such as “love never gives up,” “love is patient,” and “love is kind.”

Taking God at His word and assuming the love chapter was really meant to be followed literally word by word, she not only finds herself falling in love with her spouse again, but also falling in love with Jesus, which changes everything.

First Corinthians 13 presents an audacious, illogical, and irrational context of how to love, meant to be applied to every marital context not just the fairytale marriage. If God’s instructions seem illogical and audacious, you might just expect the same kind of results in return!

This book is not air-brushed. It was written in the midst of the author’s deepest trauma, and she purposefully did not edit out her mistakes and failures during that season. This book will resonate with women who do not feel like the picture-perfect Christian woman with the fairytale life and marriage. A Fierce Love is the story of a train wreck and reaching out to God not in the calm but in the chaos and finding hope for the future.

– “I tell myself that I don’t really listen to the song lyrics, but once I hear a song a few times and start thinking about what they’re saying I realize
that it’s too late. It’s already stuck in my head.”

Creating Calm in the Center of Crazy: Making Room for Your Soul in an Overcrowded Life

Creating Calm in the Center of Crazy: Making Room for Your Soul in an Overcrowded Life

Nicole Johnson

Are you working harder than ever but feel like you’re accomplishing less?

Does your morning routine make chickens running around headless look sane?

Is your deepest sense of calm found in the bathroom with the door locked?

Do you check social media more than five times per day? Per hour?

Author, speaker, and actor Nicole Johnson knows what it’s like to feel as if you’re drowning in crazy. When she couldn’t catch her breath or stay awake long enough to talk with her husband, let alone God, she sought to find new ways of “being” in her life. Creating Calm in the Center of Crazy is a voice of possibility and peace for women seeking to find a calm spiritual center in a crazy, runaway world. As a wife and mom of young children herself, Nicole recognized that life had become out of control. And, with the help of a crisis, she started her journey to create the very calm she was craving.

Nicole’s voice is authentic, humorous, and practical, and at the same time deeply spiritual and real. She brings rich storytelling together with her desire to find calm, and in the process discovers a deeper faith. Her personal story grounds the book as she abandons mere tips and tricks (and the empty promises of time saving apps), to explore new practices — like creating a room of her own, setting technology boundaries, rediscovering the spiritual disciplines of quiet and still (they’re not bad words) — and then extending those practices to provide a safer, stronger refuge for calm to dwell.

Nicole’s journey is shared with relatable stories, insightful help, and practical ideas that explore the inner life of a recovering crazy busy woman finding her way to calm and a deeper relationship with God.

Harvest of Gold

Harvest of Gold

Tessa Afshar

An arranged marriage. A man whose heart is closed to love. A king whose life hangs in the balance. A nation on the brink of annihilation. Harvest of Gold (Book 2)

The scribe Sarah married Darius, and at times she feels as if she has married the Persian aristocracy, too. There is another point she did not count on in her marriage–Sarah has grown to love her husband. Sarah has wealth, property, honor, and power, but her husband’s love still seems unattainable.
Although his mother was an Israelite, Darius remains skeptical that his Jewish wife is the right choice for him, particularly when she conspires with her cousin Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Ordered to assist in the effort, the couple begins a journey to the homeland of his mother’s people. Will the road filled with danger, conflict, and surprising memories, help Darius to see the hand of God at work in his life–and even in his marriage?

Tessa Afshar

The prophet Nehemiah’s cousin can speak numerous languages, keep complex accounts, write on rolls of parchment and tablets of clay, and solve great mysteries. There is only one problem: she’s a woman in a man’s court.

In her early childhood years, Sarah experienced the death of her mother and her father’s subsequent emotional distance, and she came to two conclusions: God does not care about me, and my accomplishments are the measure of my worth.

Catapulted into the center of the Persian court, Sarah is working too many hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and solving intrigues for the Queen. Ironically, it isn’t failure—but success—that causes Sarah to lose her only source of external validation.

Sarah soon learns that she has something of worth to offer beyond her ability with languages and sums; her very being proves to be a blessing to others, particularly the aristocrat Darius, whom she is given to in marriage.

Sarah and Darius’ story continues in Harvest of Gold. Darius may be able to learn to love his wife, but can he ever learn to trust Sarah and her Lord?

Denise Hunter

When a wedding reenactment turns real, Shay finds she’s an accidental bride.

Shay Brandenberger is raising her daughter in Moose Creek, Montana, on her childhood ranch, nestled against the Yellowstone River. Despite the hard work, she can’t seem to keep her head above water—and now the bank is threatening to foreclose. She prays for a miracle, but the answer she receives is anything but expected.

Having agreed to play the bride in the Founders’ Day wedding reenactment, Shay is mortified to be greeted at the end of the aisle by none other than Travis McCoy, her high-school sweetheart—the man who left her high and dry for fame and fortune on the Texas rodeo circuit.

Then the unthinkable happens. Thanks to a well-meaning busybody and an absentminded preacher, the make-believe vows result in a legal marriage. But before Shay can say annulment, Travis comes up with a crazy proposal. If she refuses his offer, she may lose her home. If she accepts, she may lose her heart.

Shay isn’t sure if the recent events are God’s will or just a preacher’s blunder. Will trusting her heart to the man who once shattered it be the worst mistake of her life? Or could their marriage be the best accident that ever happened?

K.M. Weiland

Acclaim for Dreamlander

BRAG Medallion Winner and NIEA Finalist!

“…its gut-rending emotions remind me of the Shakespeare tragedies I read in college. Its war scenes remind me of Lord of the Rings, complete with impossible odds and life-changing decisions. And its jewels of wisdom remind me of the works of C. S. Lewis.”—William Polm

“From hydraulic pistols to steam-driven cable cars, this felt like a fresh and creative sword and sorcery world—one running parallel to our own.”—Adam Collings

“K.M. Weiland writes without holding back. She pours an onslaught of visual and emotional power into each scene with a style that slams you between the eyes, knocking you into portal wars and worlds as dangerous as they are beautiful.”—Naomi D. Musch

About the Book

What if it were possible to live two very different lives in two separate worlds? What if the dreams we awaken from are the fading memories of that second life? What if one day we woke up in the wrong world?

In this fantasy thriller, a woman on a black warhorse gallops through the mist in Chris Redston’s dreams every night. Every night, she begs him not to come to her. Every night, she aims her rifle at his head and fires. The last thing Chris expects—or wants—is for this nightmare to be real. But when he wakes up in the world of his dreams, he has to choose between the likelihood that he’s gone spectacularly bonkers or the possibility that he’s just been let in on the secret of the ages.

Only one person in a generation may cross the worlds. These chosen few are the Gifted, called from Earth into Lael to shape the epochs of history—and Chris is one of them. But before he figures that out, he accidentally endangers both worlds by resurrecting a vengeful prince intent on claiming the powers of the Gifted for himself. Together with a suspicious princess and a guilt-ridden Cherazii warrior, Chris must hurl himself into an action adventure battle to save a country from war, two worlds from annihilation, and himself from a dream come way too true.

More Praise for Dreamlander

“If you enjoy gritty epic fantasy books with a liberal dose of swordplay and can tolerate a bit of graphic violence, Dreamlander by K. M. Weiland is the novel for you.”—Janalyn Voigt

“I love that [Weiland] writes for both men and women in her science fiction and fantasy stories. Themes involving finding and accepting one’s destiny are universal.”—C. Estrella

“The fish-out-of-water aspect of Chris crossing into a new world has been done many times, but [Weiland] keeps it fresh and intriguing throughout the story.”—Jason Joyner

What We Talk About When We Talk About God: A

What We Talk About When We Talk About God: A

Rob Bell

How God is described today strikes many as mean, primitive, backward, illogical, tribal, and at odds with the frontiers of science. At the same time, many intuitively feel a sense of reverence and awe in the world. Can we find a new way to talk about God?

Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell does here for God what he did for heaven and hell in Love Wins: he shows how traditional ideas have grown stale and dysfunctional and reveals a new path for how to return vitality and vibrancy to how we understand God. Bell reveals how we got stuck, why culture resists certain ways of talking about God, and how we can reconnect with the God who is with us, for us, and ahead of us, pulling us forward into a better future—and ready to help us live life to the fullest.

Real Artists Don't Starve: Timeless Strategies for Thriving in the New Creative Age

Real Artists Don’t Starve: Timeless Strategies for Thriving in the New Creative Age

Jeff Goins

Bestselling author and creativity expert Jeff Goins dismantles the myth that being creative is a hindrance to success by revealing how an artistic temperament is in fact a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

For centuries, the myth of the starving artist has dominated our culture, seeping into the minds of creative people and stifling their pursuits. But the truth is that the world’s most successful artists did not starve. In fact, they capitalized on the power of their creative strength. In Real Artists Don’t Starve, Jeff Goins debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for thriving, including:

steal from your influences (don’t wait for inspiration),
collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve),
take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones),
make money in order to make more art (it’s not selling out), and
apprentice under a master (a “lone genius” can never reach full potential).

Through inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present, Goins shows that living by these rules is not only doable but it’s also a fulfilling way to thrive.

From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Goins’ revolutionary rules celebrate the process of becoming an artist, a person who utilizes the imagination in fundamental ways. He reminds creatives that business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity.

Expanding upon the groundbreaking work in his previous bestseller The Art of Work, Goins explores the tension every creative person and organization faces in an effort to blend the inspired life with a practical path to success. Being creative isn’t a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.

Chicago lawyer Ben Corbin has just launched his private practice when Dr. Mikhail Ivanovsky, a mysterious Russian scientist, hires him to sue for possession of a safe deposit box. But when the box’s owner enlists the city’s highest-powered lawyer—and then turns up dead—the Russian confesses: inside the box is an old Soviet biowarfare formula for the deadliest disease known to humankind.

To make matters worse, a technicality called the Dead Man’s Rule now forbids the scientist from taking the stand. With no one to testify—and therefore no evidence—the odds against Ben seem insurmountable.

Parenting the Wholehearted Child: Captivating Your Child’s Heart with God’s Extravagant Grace

Jeannie Cunnion

“Rarely do I ever find myself agreeing with everything I read in a book. But Parenting the Wholehearted Child is the book I wish I’d written. Jeannie has given parents a profound gift within its pages.”

—Kathie Lee Gifford, actress, singer, playwright, songwriter, and co-host of the Today Show’s Fourth Hour

With authenticity, conviction, and a lively sense of humor, Jeannie guides you on a transformative journey into raising wholehearted—not perfect—children, who live from the freedom found in being wholeheartedly loved (and liked!) by God.

Parenting the Wholehearted Child equips you with biblical wisdom and practical ideas to teach your children that they are fully accepted by God, not because of anything they do or don’t do but because of everything Jesus has already done for them.

Woven throughout the book is the good news that it is God’s extravagant grace—not your perfect performance—that transforms the hearts of children.

How to Be an Atheist (Foreword by J. P. Moreland): Why Many Skeptics Aren't Skeptical Enough

How to Be an Atheist (Foreword by J. P. Moreland): Why Many Skeptics Aren’t Skeptical Enough

Mitch Stokes

Atheists talk a lot about the importance of skepticism. But the truth is, they’re not nearly skeptical enough.

While atheists champion the importance of a critical stance toward religion, they often fail to take that same stance toward their own beliefs. This double standard results in grandiose claims about the certainty of their unbelief—which is logically inconsistent at best and intellectually dishonest at worst. Turning atheists’ skepticism around on their own naturalist worldview, philosopher Mitch Stokes critically examines two things that such skeptics hold dear—science and morality—and reveals deep inconsistencies among their most cherished beliefs, inconsistencies that threaten to undo atheism itself.

Harlowe Chapman’s home is the back of a horse, his friends the herd of cows he tends. He grew up in these mountains, his entire goal to be as good a man as his father was. Lottie’s arrival, unplanned, unexplained, highlights the emptiness of his days. He’s been alone far too long.

Yet, their growing attraction suffers a serious setback when a family secret comes to light, and it could be the forgiveness she’s desperately seeking is the same grace he needs for himself.

KICKIN’ HEARTS (RODEO GIRLS) BOOK 1

Halston Kane, the second of three brothers, considers himself stuck in the middle, a feeling which magnifies after his mother’s death. Never on top and not able to get ahead, he’s constantly losing out.

Saddle bronc riding is something he’s good at, yet lately, even there he falls short. Others who shouldn’t ride well are passing him up, and his best simply isn’t good enough.

Then Destiny Mullens turns up at his door, a girl he shouldn’t go near because she belongs to someone else. Sparks fly between them, and it seems what they both want – each other – won’t happen until he sets his doubts aside and takes the biggest ride of his life, one for his heart.

SINGING COWBOY: GOING HOME

Country music star, Gideon Boone, spent his youth hiding from his mother’s undiagnosed mental disease. Music was his escape and, one day in his teens, his ticket out. Yet, somewhere between home, on the backroads of Georgia, and fame in Nashville, he lost himself in his public persona.

Jayde Lincoln hides her history as an abused wife, and the pain of the child she lost, beneath a tough exterior. Moving to a tiny town in the rural countryside, is her new start. Despite lingering prejudices in the community, she believes she’ll find peace and happiness there.

When hometown idol, Gideon, enters her flower shop, his smooth talk and flirtaceous smiles are pleasant at first. Then mistrust and doubt created at her ex-husband’s angry fists strip away her confidence. Their differences … his fame, her need for anonymity; their contracting lifestyles and skin colors … are surely too much to overcome. Except their hearts sing another tune, something wonderful and perfect, that feels like love.

GOD BLESS TEXAS (Cowboys of the Double R) Book 1

Jared Flint struggles to overcome his spotted past and put his years in prison behind him, slaving away beneath the Texas sun. Yet, hard work has done little to abate his ever-present anger. With every brawl, he strikes back at his abusive past, unable to turn loose of the hate that almost took a man’s life.

Holly Carleton hopped a train on a dare and headed south. After her mama’s passing, she’s been rudderless, always searching for that one thing to fulfill her. Taking a job at a ranch at one of the towns along the tracks comes on a whim. But walking in on cowboy, Jared Flint, half-dressed – that was accidental. And something she’ll never forget. He’s strength and brawn in a perfectly carved package.

The days passing, their attraction growing, it becomes clear, he’s held aloof from relationships for a reason. No woman deserves a man like him. Except together, they have a future rich in possibilities, and if he can just turn loose of the pain, a chance for forgiveness and love.

Reluctant Burglar (To Catch a Thief)

Jill Elizabeth Nelson

Surrounded by no good options, much less safe ones, Desiree Jacobs knows that no matter what she must protect her father’s reputation and his legacy.

If Desiree Jacobs knows anything, it’s art. Her father, whose security company is internationally renowned, taught her everything he knew. Most of all, he taught her about honor. Integrity. Faith. So surely God will forgive her for despising the one man–Special Agent Tony Lucano, who’s determined to destroy her father’s good name?

Agent Lucano knows that Hiram Jacobs is an art thief. But what he can’t figure out is Desiree. Is she an innocent victim…or a clever accomplice?

When Hiram is murdered, along with his company, he leaves Desiree a hidden container full of stolen paintings. But she can’t believe that her father was a thief! If it were true, it would destroy their business, cost people their jobs, and embarrass international museums that have been displaying clever forgeries. No, she must figure out why her honest father would turn criminal herself. Even if it means facing down a ring of cutthroat art thieves…or accepting help from the man she most distrusts. With danger at every turn, can Desiree trust God to guide her down the right path?

he Way to God - Updated Edition

The Way to God – Updated Edition

Dwight L. Moody

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness – 1 John 1:9

There is life in Christ. Rich, joyous, wonderful life. It is true that the Lord disciplines those whom He loves and that we are often tempted by the world and our enemy, the devil. But if we know how to go beyond that temptation to cling to the cross of Jesus Christ and keep our eyes on our Lord, our reward both here on earth and in heaven will be 100 times better than what this world has to offer.

This book is thorough. It brings to life the love of God, examines the state of the unsaved individual’s soul, and analyzes what took place on the cross for our sins. The Way to God takes an honest look at our need to repent and follow Jesus, and gives hope for unending, joyous eternity in heaven.

About the Author
Dwight L. Moody, determined to make a fortune, arrived in Chicago and started selling shoes. But Christ found him and his energies were redirected into full-time ministry. And what a ministry it was. Today, Moody’s name still graces a church, a mission, a college, and more. Moody loved God and men, and the power of a love like that impacts generations.

Picking Daisy (New England Inspirations Book 3)

Valerie Howard

Elise Gilpatrick never thought she would be a parent, especially not like this. After agreeing to take 15-year-old DJ as a temporary foster placement straight from the police station, she feels like she’s in over her head. But, as she learns on the job, and with a little help from her coworker, Elise realizes that she and DJ need to lean on each other, and on the God who pieced them together. Their rocky journey will only prove that it’s never too late to find the love of a family.
—————————————————–
Editorial Review: “I had the privilege of working on this book with Valerie. On the surface, it is a story of a woman who takes in a foster child. They both learn a lot about themselves and each other. It may not be a romance, but it is a love story.
Below the surface, Picking Daisy shows the reality of the system where children bounce from home to home at the mercy of adults who do their best, but are all too human. The emotional scars from going through any long-term foster care may never heal. The day a child ages out of the system is, at the same time, the anticipated day of freedom, and the terrifying day when they are pushed into the world without support.
Deeper yet, the story is one of redemption, of loving past the brokenness in our lives. It’s about second, and third chances, of a refusal to give up on hope, and learning when we are in the darkest of places, we are not alone.
I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of books which brought tears to my eyes.
Picking Daisy is one of them.”

Strong and Weak: Embracing a Life of Love, Risk and True Flourishing

Strong and Weak: Embracing a Life of Love, Risk and True Flourishing

Andy Crouch

Flourishing people are strong and weak.

Two common temptations lure us away from abundant living—withdrawing into safety or grasping for power. True flourishing, says Andy Crouch, travels down an unexpected path—being both strong and weak.

We see this unlikely mixture in the best leaders—people who use their authority for the benefit of others, while also showing extraordinary willingness to face and embrace suffering. We see it in Jesus, who wielded tremendous power yet also exposed himself to hunger, ridicule, torture and death. Rather than being opposites, strength and weakness are actually meant to be combined in every human life and community. Only when they come together do we find the flourishing for which we were made.

With the characteristic insight, memorable stories and hopeful realism he is known for, Andy Crouch shows us how to walk this path so that the image of God can shine through us. Not just for our own good, but for the sake of others.

If you want to become the kind of person whose influence leads to healthy communities, someone with the strength to be compassionate and generous, this is the book for you. Regardless of your stage or role in life, whether or not you have a position of leadership, here is a way to love and risk so that we all, even the most vulnerable, can flourish.

“I am not a man given to foolish superstitions, Miss O’Hara, but I daresay that John Turner’s soul will not rest until the mystery of his son has been resolved, and he was counting upon you to do so. Will you accept?”

Molly O’Hara was just a little girl when she lost her heart to James Turner, the handsome, high-spirited young man who, along with his twin brother, was the heir to the Turner Plantation. But the Civil War tore families apart; it split the Turner brothers as one fought for the Union and the other fought for the Confederacy. The war took Molly’s father’s life and left her mother a distraught widow.

Now the brothers are gone; one died in battle and James suffered the fate of Andersonville Prison, where most men are never heard from again. But when Molly, who grew up faster than her years, decides to become a mail-order bride at age eighteen, she answers an advertisement from a man named James Turner who runs a ranch in Texas. When she arrives, the man who introduces himself as Jim Turner is reserved and distant, nothing like the James Turner she remembers. But as their love grows, she learns more about the dark places in his soul and she realizes that part of him never left Andersonville.

Can Molly get James to finally face his past and admit who he is? Will her love run deep enough to break through the scars of war?

But when a mysterious Sri Lankan girl of Moorish descent moves to town in the summer of 1979, Turtle invites her to their secret haven: the Blue Hole. Turtle could not have imagined how much that simple gesture would affect the rest of her life, or the lives of those she loved.
