It’s Your Call: What Are You Doing Here?

Gary Barkalow

Price: FREE

I just finished “It’s Your Call,” and I found the book refreshing, insightful, and delightfully written. I want to recommend it to all my Christian friends, in fact, to all my friends. And I want my church to put this into practice.
Most religious organizations–and I’ve been a part of many–think mechanically about their members. We, as an organization, have a need and we look for someone to fill it. Scripture, however, offers an organic metaphor for the church’s organization, a body. So, instead asking ourselves “what do we need” we should be asking “why did God bring to us so-and-so–what do they uniquely bring?”
And as individuals we need to be asking: what am I called to offer? It’s Your Call describes how to find an individual’s “calling” so we can offer the very thing that we can uniquely provide. Our uniqueness–due to history, experience, gifts, gender, etc.–means we have something to offer that no one else in the world has to offer.

Sam Williamson

Discover God’s calling for your life …

Few spiritual concepts have fascinated and confused people more than understanding God’s calling for their life. Is it primarily about a job or a role? It is precise or general? Is a calling only reserved for those who work in professional ministry?

The truth is actually amazingly profound: What we are supposed to do is what we most want to do.

This is a guide for discovering God’s design and destiny for your life. Drawing from over 20 years of experience in ministry, Gary Barkalow shares how you can:

Live alert and oriented to the voice and choreography of God.
Discover and interpret the voice of your own story.
Discern the strategic assault against your calling.
Recognize God’s intentional training in your life’s journey.

Most of all, you’ll be inspired to let the glory of your life touch the world around you.

Coconut Flour (Gluten Free, Cookie, Muffin And Cake Recipes)

Sara Winlet

Price: FREE

I was so glad to see that Sara Winlet not only recommends the use of coconut flour instead of wheat or barley or rye, but also recommends the use of coconut oil in place of butter. Many years ago, I discovered the health benefits of coconut oil and often cook with it. The author explains why gluten-free flour is important and what changes have to be made to make the recipes you might normally make with wheat flour. I’m quite anxious to try some of the recipes she discusses, especially the gingerbread cookies and the snickerdoodles.

Adopting The Minimalist Mindset: How To Live With Less, Downsize, And Get More Fulfillment From Life

Ben Night

Price: FREE

This book gave me a lot of insight; I feel everyone could benefit from this excellent guide! Thanks to the author for sharing.

cindyp

A new revolution is currently taking place, one that looks set to change how we view ourselves and the objects around us. This new, groundbreaking revolution is the practice of minimalism. In a society consumed by debt, greed, and envy, this new trend looks to change the way we think about everything in our lives. We spend our entire lives chasing happiness by chasing our peers, consuming, and collecting goods. But with depression and anxiety at all time highs, this trend is clearly not working.

This Book Will Discuss:

The benefits of minamlism
How to practice minamlism
How to organize your home and your life
How to remove your ego from purchasing decisions
The habits of highly effective minamalists
How to cut your bills
Over 50 tips saving money, cutting bills, and spending time on your true passions
Much, much, more!

This has led to the rapid rise of a new age of living: living simply. The minimalist focuses more on time and presence then on objects. Happiness, helping others, and self-fulfillment are at the top of minimalists’ priorities. They realize that happiness does not come from consumption, but that true happiness comes from within. Spending time creating memorable moments is a much better experience then spending time on a new object.

Eyes of Honor: Training for Purity and Righteousness

Jonathan Welton

Price: FREE

I would recommend this to anyone, man or woman, who feels burdened by guilt and shame that comes by way of any kind of sin, not just lust. There is a beautiful revelation of who Jesus is and who you are in Jesus, and once you figure that out and rest in the Truth, then everything else is gravy.

David M

whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things (Philippians 4:8).

After struggling with sexual temptation for years, author Jonathan Welton devoted himself to finding a way to be completely free from sexual sin. He read books, attended 12-step groups, and participated in counseling—with no success.

Spurred on by countless friends and acquaintances who shared a similar broken struggle and longed for freedom, the author searched Scripture—there he found the answer and shares it with you in a compassionate, nonjudgmental way.

Eyes of Honor helps you understand how to live a life of purity by realizing:

Your personal identity.
How to view the opposite sex correctly.
Recognizing your enemies.

Eyes of Honor is honest and refreshing, offering hope and complete freedom and deliverance from sexual sin. Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and your salvation guarantee rescue from the appetite of sin. Your true identity empowers you to stop agreeing with the lies of the enemy that ensnare you.

Dangerous Surrender

Kay Warren

Price: $1.99

I did a double-take when I read the back cover endorsement from Gary Thomas, who describes Dangerous Surrender as `one of the richest reads I’ve experienced.’ Having now finished the book, I’m in complete agreement with Mr. Thomas’ assessment. You must read this book!

M. Johnson

You have a plan for the rest of your life. God has a plan for the rest of your life. Are they the same?
You have expectations for how your life will play out, and you hope those plans will become realities.
But what if God’s plan for your life is far different from what you had in mind? Can you accept that? Will you surrender your goals for God’s?
Kay Warren had a plan. Together with her husband, Rick Warren, author of the megaseller The Purpose Driven Life, she planned that after her kids were grown, she’d travel the world, teaching and encouraging couples in ministry. It was a good plan. But it wasn’t what God had in mind for her.
In a startling wake-up call, Kay discovered the shocking realities of the AIDS pandemic in Africa while reading a magazine. ‘I want to use you!’ she heard God say. That began the struggle—first to avoid God’s call and then to surrender herself to God.
She cried out to God, ‘Why are you bothering me with this? There’s nothing I can do about it. I’m just an ordinary person. What could one person do about such a gigantic problem’ But God had grabbed her attention and wouldn’t let go.
If you’ve ever struggled with knowing and doing God’s will, this book is for you. With raw honesty, Kay goes straight to the heart of the matter: the bottom line is surrender. Will you trust God?
Along the way she’ll introduce you to others—people like you—who have said yes to God and have made a difference in the world. Using their skills, energy, faith, and a willingness to take risks, they became powerful instruments of change and tools in God’s hands.
Giving in to God isn’t easy. It’s not for cowards. It’s the boldest, riskiest step you’ll ever take. This dangerous surrender can bring both joy and pain, both heartache and ecstasy, but it enables you to know God in a far deeper way than ever before.
I had to make a conscious decision. Would I retreat to my comfortable life and to my settled plans? Or would I surrender to God’s call and let my heart engage with a cause such as AIDS that I was pretty sure would include buckets of pain and sorrow? I felt like I was standing on the edge of a giant precipice; I couldn’t go back, and yet the way forward looked like stepping into a void.
Kay Warren took that step, choosing to dangerously surrender to God. That decision transformed her life, marriage, and future. She invites you to do the same.
