Better: How Jesus Satisfies the Search for Meaning

Better: How Jesus Satisfies the Search for Meaning

Tim Chaddick

I highly recommend this book. Not just for you, but for your loved ones. Oh, and also grab a few extra copies for some of the many strangers you brush shoulders with, because they think they know what’s best, but this book will help them see that Jesus is better, and He satisfies their search for meaning.

O. Brefo

“What does it take to find satisfaction? Will I ever find something in life that’s better than this?”

Most people live a life they never would have planned. The good news is that coming to the end of their expectations means they’re on the brink of great wisdom, peace, and joy. That’s what the ancient author of Ecclesiastes helps us figure out—it is quite possible to face detours and dead-ends in life and still find more satisfaction than you ever could have imagined.

Better explores the mysteries, scandalous lines, and deep truths of Ecclesiastes and applies them to life today. Better seeks to show how the questions of the heart find their answer in the person of Jesus. Here you will find a vision of life that is neither naive nor cynical, but realistic and hopeful. Because the truth is, when God answers the questions, you finally realize what is better.

Colorful, bright and certainly appealing to young children, I personally think the other Baby Genius books are better. If you are under the impression that this is a sound book, it is not! Of course all the words are there and it is a common tune so your whole house can soon be singing along!

The 3:16 Promise: He Loves. He Gives. We Believe. We Live.

Max Lucado

Max Lucado has a way to illustrate concepts in the bible to make them crystal clear. I was raised with daily bible reading at the dinner table and know the bible well. As well as I know it, reading Max Lucado’s books, and especially 3:16, has renewed and deepened the realization that God’s love as expressed in Jesus is all encompassing and unconditional. He loves me when I don’t love, or even like, myself.

White Tulip

It’s the perfect way to introduce the gospel to friends and acquaintances through Max Lucado’s warm and easy to understand writing style. Experience God’s grace and plan of salvation for the first time or use this booklet to share the message of hope with someone you know.

Tuesdays at the Castle (Castle Glower Book 1)

Tuesdays at the Castle (Castle Glower Book 1)

Jessica Day George

TUESDAYS AT THE CASTLE was a fast and easy read. The chapters are rather short making it easy to read just one a night with your child. This was such a fun story that I can’t wait to read it again only this time with my kids.

akb–bookworm

Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celia’s favorite days. That’s because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing to itself. No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one – other than Celia, that is – takes time to map out the new additions. But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and reportedly killed, it’s up to Celia with her secret knowledge of the Castle’s many twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom.

Rooms

Rooms

James L. Rubart

Rooms is really about what’s inside us. It’s about how sometimes when it looks like you have it all, you may not have it all together inside, and that’s where it counts. It’s about dealing with tragedy, then coping when the tragedy becomes too much. It’s also about questions, and questioning ourselves. The biggest question of all is how to deal with life. Rubart’s answer is simple – turn to God.

Michelle Skaflestad

On a rainy spring day in Seattle, young software tycoon Micah Taylor receives a cryptic, twenty-five-year-old letter from a great uncle he never knew. It claims a home awaits him on the Oregon coast that will turn his world inside out. Suspecting a prank, Micah arrives at Cannon Beach to discover a stunning, brand new nine-thousand square foot house. And after meeting Sarah Sabin at a nearby ice cream shop, he has two reasons to visit the beach every weekend. When bizarre things start happening in the rooms of the home, Micah suspects they have some connection to his enigmatic new friend, Rick, the town mechanic. But Rick will only say the house is spiritual. This unnerves Micah because his faith slipped away like the tide years ago, and he wants to keep it that way. But as he slowly discovers, the home isn’t just spiritual, it’s a physical manifestation of his soul, which God uses to heal Micah’s darkest wounds and lead him into an astonishing new destiny.

Mother of Pearl

Mother of Pearl

Kellie Coates Gilbert

Oh, I loved this book! Just as the summary says, it is emotionally riveting and profoundly moving. I cried and cried while reading Mother of Pearl (outright crying while reading is a rare thing for me). I was sitting on my couch during my baby’s nap time, with a box of tissues next to me. The book was just so moving, I could not hold the tears in. I don’t think I would have been so affected, but for the fact that I am a mother now and could really identify with Barrie. That’s not to say that Mother of Pearl was a depressing book. There were sad events, to be sure, but ultimately the book was uplifting and ended on a positive note.

Kelli of I’d So Rather Be Reading

Barrie Graeber has two great kids, a loving husband, and a respected job as the high school counselor in her close-knit community. Without warning, everything unravels when her teenage daughter, Pearl, is betrayed by friends and lashes out.

Nothing prepares this mother for the helplessness that follows when her attempts to steer her daughter back on course fail and Pearl shuts her out . . . or when she discovers the unthinkable about her nemesis, the football coach.

Emotionally riveting and profoundly moving, Mother of Pearl brings us into the heart of a mother bound by an incredible burden, who ultimately finds she must recognize her own vulnerability and learn to trust in something much bigger.

“Heart-wrenching yet filled with grace and hope, Kellie Coates Gilbert’s Mother of Pearl is beautifully written and a book that needs to be read by everyone with a child or grandchild. Novel Rocket and I give it a high recommendation.” Ane Mulligan, Sr. Editor Novel Rocket

“A story that could have come from today’s headlines, Mother of Pearl is a compelling, thought-provoking debut. With impeccable prose, Kellie Coates Gilbert kept me turning the pages in this high-stakes story of one mother’s quest for healing and justice.” – Carla Stewart, award-winning author of Chasing Lilacs and Stardust

“Kellie Coates Gilbert’s debut novel kept me turning pages and on the edge of my seat. Wonderful, richly-drawn characters who drew me to their hearts despite their flaws. Mother of Pearl carries a sobering message but it’s deftly threaded through a story that is anything but sober. I will eagerly await Gilbert’s next offering.” -Deborah Raney, author of the Hanover Falls Novels series from Howard/Simon & Schuster

“Gilbert’s debut novel is a force to be reckoned with. Mother of Pearl will pluck at the cords of every reader’s heart and refuse to let go until the last page. The story shines a light in the dark places of an issue too often over-looked. There’s a desperate need for awareness regarding this sensitive topic, and Gilbert’s Barrie is a mother who is willing to stand her ground in the face of the fiercest opposition. A heart-twisting tale that readers won’t soon forget.”—Elizabeth Goddard, Carol Award winning author of The Camera Never Lies

“Kellie Gilbert’s debut novel is a beautifully written, moving story about the vastness of a mother’s love for her daughter. Highly recommended.” Lisa Harris, Christy Award Finalist

“A cautionary tale for our times, Mother of Pearl is a compelling journey through loss and longing, grief and redemption, crime and justice. Kellie Coates Gilbert unfolds her story with the sensitivity of a skilled writer.” – Lisa Wingate, National bestselling, award-winning author of Dandelion Summer and Blue Moon Bay

“From the deepest recesses of her heart, Kellie Coates Gilbert pens her debut novel – Mother of Pearl. It is a story about love, family, tragedy and loss that the author writes with an immeasurable depth of passion and skill. Beautifully and compellingly written, this heartbreaking – yet heartwarming story goes beyond the norm, allowing us to touch the very soul of depression and grief. And to come out the better for it. This story will remain with me for many years to come.” – Nancy Jo Jenkins, author of Coldwater Revival

“I started and finished Mother of Pearl in one night. There is no better endorsement than simply not being able to put a book down. And I couldn’t put down this first time authors debut novel. I was totally engrossed.” – Tina Sloan, Author of Changing Shoes, and television star of Guiding Light
