Let. It. Go.: How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith

Let. It. Go.: How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith

Karen Ehman

We women can get tense about many things. The to-do list. Our kids’ grades. Our waistlines. Our mortages. This list goes on and on! Karen very wisely teaches a needed life skill: “how to control what we should and trust God with what we can’t.”

Arlene Pellicane

Many women are wired to control. You’re the ones who make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to work, school, and other activities on time.
But trying to control everything can be exhausting, and it can also cause friction with your friends and family.
This humorous, yet thought-provoking book guides you as you discover for yourself the freedom and reward of living a life ‘out of control,’ in which you allow God to be seated in the rightful place in your life. Armed with relevant biblical and current examples (both to emulate and to avoid), doable ideas, new thought patterns, and practical tools to implement, Let It Go will gently lead you out of the land of over-control and into a place of quiet trust.

Make College Count: A Faithful Guide to Life and Learning

Derek Melleby

A great graduation gift for sure. A well written realistic look at what college has to offer our kids, both good and bad. This book will open eyes to some good choices to make. Have never heard negative feedback-only thank yous!

mama j

There’s more to college than classes, credits, and a nonstop social life. It’s more than getting a degree to improve one’s job prospects. College is a time where students develop into the adults they will be for the rest of their lives, a time to explore the big questions about life and human destiny, a time when they form their character and faith.
The perfect gift for high school graduation, Make College Count helps students make the most of their time in college. It encourages young people to ask important questions of themselves, such as

Why are you going to college?
What kind of person do you want to be?
How do you want your life to influence others?
With whom will you surround yourself?
What do you believe?
and more

Gospel Wakefulness (Foreword by Ray Ortlund)

Gospel Wakefulness (Foreword by Ray Ortlund)

Jared C. Wilson

Gospel Wakefulness is a captivating picture of what it means to have a heart that is awe-struck by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Wilson’s exuberant passion for the good news will encourage and inspire you as you read this book. I trust you’ll come away from the book further amazed at the grace of God in Christ.

Aaron Armstrong

We may know the gospel. We may believe it—even proclaim it. But we also may assume the gospel and become lethargic. In this book Jared Wilson seeks to answer the central question, how do we experience and present the gospel in a fresh, nonroutine way in order to prevent ourselves and others from becoming numb? His answer may be surprising: “by routinely presenting the unchanging gospel in a way that does justice to its earth-shaking announcement.” We don’t excite and awaken people to the glorious truths of the gospel by spicing up our worship services or through cutting-edge, dramatic rhetoric, but by passionately and faithfully proclaiming the same truths we have already been given in Scripture.

Wilson’s book will stir churches to live out the power of the gospel with a fervent, genuine zeal. After an explanation of the term “gospel wakefulness,” Wilson unpacks implications for worship, hyper-spirituality, godly habits, and sanctification, as well as other aspects of church life. Pastors, church leaders, and all in ministry, especially those who are tired or discouraged, will be uplifted, emboldened, and empowered by this book.

Treasure Island: Literary Touchstone Edition

Treasure Island: Literary Touchstone Edition

Robert Louis Stevenson

In short, Treasure Island well deserves its status as a beloved classic. It’s a story of suspense and adventure that can be enjoyed at a child’s level, but has substance for adults as well. I would recommend without reserve it to virtually anyone.

Joseph Boone

EVERYONE DREAMS OF FINDING BURIED TREASURE, and that is why Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island is such an enduring classic. Treasure Island, published in 1883, gave Stevenson his first popular success, and it’s easy to see why it remains a favorite of readers of all ages. The tale of young Jim Hawkins and his unlikely band of adventurers strikes at the very heart of our own desire to lose ourselves among hidden chests, cryptic maps, and treacherous companions.

If you loved it when you read it earlier, you owe it to yourself to revisit the deceitful Long John Silver, the dull but reliable Dr. Livesey, and the pompously naïve Squire Trelawney. If this is your first visit to the high seas, find yourself a comfortable chair, because you won’t be putting the book down until the last mutineer is brought to justice and last gold coin counted.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic includes a glossary and notes to help readers unfamiliar with some of the vocabulary and nautical terms appreciate Stevenson’s grand adventure.

Must-Have Amish Fiction from #1 Bestselling Author Beverly Lewis

When schoolteacher Jodi Winfield goes for a morning run, the last thing she expects is to find a disheveled little girl all alone on the side of the Pennsylvania road, clad only in her undergarments, her chubby cheeks streaked with tears. Jodi takes the preschooler home with her, intending to find out where she belongs. But Jodi is mystified when no one seems to know of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can’t speak a word of English. It’s as if the child appeared out of nowhere.

As the days pass, Jodi becomes increasingly attached to the mysterious girl, yet she is no closer to learning her identity. Then an unexpected opportunity brings Jodi to Hickory Hollow–and into the cloistered world of the Lancaster Old Order Amish. Might the answers lie there?

Lynn Austin

I have read all of Lynn Austin’s books and love them all, but I do believe this is her best yet. I had a hard time putting it down

D. Lester

New Historical Novel from 7-Time Christy Award Winner!

In the aftermath of the Civil War, Josephine Weatherly and her mother, Eugenia, struggle to pick up the pieces of their lives when they return to their Virginia plantation. But the bitter realities of life after the war cannot be denied: their home and land are but shells of their previous grandeur; death has claimed her father and brother; and her remaining brother, Daniel, has returned home bitter and broken. The privileged childhood Josephine enjoyed now seems like a long-ago dream. And the God who failed to answer any of her prayers during the war is lost to her as well.

Josephine soon realizes that life is now a matter of daily survival–and recognizes that Lizzie, as one of the few remaining servants, is the one she must rely on to teach her all she needs to know. Josephine’s mother, too, vows to rebuild White Oak…but a bitter hatred fuels her.

With skill and emotion, Lynn Austin brings to life the difficult years of the Reconstruction era by interweaving the stories of three women–daughter, mother, and freed slave–in a riveting tale.

Julia's Hope

Julia’s Hope

Leisha Kelly

I’ve never been an avid reader, but I decided to give it a try on this series from Leisha Kelly. Wow! These books are great and so hard to put down. Since I’ve completed all the books in this series (Julia’s Hope, Emma’s Gift, Katie’s Dream and Rorey’s Secret), I’ve been inspired to read many others. I’m also looking forward to reading the new book, Rachel’s Prayer, coming out in July, 2006. I feel I’ve found a new hobby, a place to get away from everyday stresses.

MKLH

Like countless others in 1931, Samuel Wortham lost his job. And he lost his wife’s inheritance, their home, and much of his self-respect. Samuel, his wife, Julia, and their two young children hitchhike from Pennsylvania to Illinois in hope of work. Caught on the road by a sudden storm, the Worthams take shelter in an abandoned farmhouse out of desperation.

Feeling oddly at home, Julia insists on finding the owner of the property, despite Samuel’s objections, and asks for permission to stay. The owner is Emma Graham, a woman in her eighties who longs for home but can no longer live by herself. Emma and the Worthams work out a plan to live there together and restore the farm. Samuel struggles with not being able to provide for his family, and Julia and the kids confront unpleasant surprises when a busybody neighbor turns against them.

Julia’s Hope is an endearing story of faith and faithfulness as Emma teaches the Worthams to live fully, give generously, and love unconditionally. She insists that the family grow where they are planted, like the garden they tend, and each member of the family is forever changed by her wisdom.

Ekaterina (Heirs of Anton Book 1)

Ekaterina (Heirs of Anton Book 1)

Susan May Warren

I enjoyed this book so much. It has adventure, mystery, and romance. The whole plot was well written and all the characters were well developed. The romance between Kat and Vadeem was especially great. It wasn’t overdone to the point of ridiculously sappy, like some books, but was simply sweet. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series, Nadia, which appears to be about Ekaterina’s mother.

Rebekah Martin

Upon receiving an unusual package in the mail, Ekaterina “Kat” Moore boards a plane to Russia, her ancestral home, to seek some answers.
