Notes from a Blue Bike: The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World

Tsh Oxenreider

Excellent read. I loved every page and couldn’t put it down! 🙂

Julie Bergman, Eric Bergman

Life is chaotic. But
we can choose to live it differently.

It doesn’t always
feel like it, but we do have the
freedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so that
our path better aligns with our values and passions.

The popular blogger and founder of the internationally
recognized Simple Mom online
community tells the story of her family’s ongoing quest to live more simply,
fully, and intentionally.

Part memoir, part travelogue, part practical guide, Notes from a Blue Bike takes you from a
hillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to a
small town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertime
dilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions via
plane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike.

Entertaining and compelling—but never shrill or dogmatic—Notes from a Blue Bike invites you to
climb on your own bike, pay attention to who you are and what your family
needs, and make some important choices.

It’s a risky ride, but it’s worth it—living your life
according to who you really are
simply takes a little intention. It’s never too late.

The Beauty of Broken: My Story and Likely Yours Too

The Beauty of Broken: My Story and Likely Yours Too

Elisa Morgan

A wonderfully written thought-provoking story. I’ve never highlighted so many passages in a book! One I’ll re-read often and pass along to many.

Patricia Phibbs

Find beauty and hope by facing and dealing with the messiness of family life.

The family is an imperfect institution. Broken people become broken parents who make broken families. But actually, broken is normal and exactly where God wants us.

In The Beauty of Broken, Elisa Morgan, one of today’s most respected female Christian leaders, for the first time shares her very personal story of brokenness—from her first family of origin to the second, represented by her husband and two grown children. Over the years, Elisa’s family struggled privately with issues many parents must face, including:

alcoholism and drug addiction
infertility and adoption
teen pregnancy and abortion
divorce, homosexuality, and death

Each story layers onto the next to reveal the brokenness that comes into our lives without invitation. “We’ve bought into the myth of the perfect family,” says Elisa. “Formulaic promises about the family may have originated in well-meaning intentions, but such thinking isn’t realistic. It’s not helpful. It’s not even kind.”

Instead she offers hope in the form of “broken family values” that allow parents to grow and thrive with God. Values such as commitment, humility, relinquishment, and respect carry us to new places of understanding. Owning our brokenness shapes us into God’s best idea for us and enables us to discover the beauty in ourselves and each member of our family.

Overextended and Loving Most of It: The Unexpected Joy of Being Harried, Heartbroken, and Hurling Oneself Off Cliffs

Overextended and Loving Most of It: The Unexpected Joy of Being Harried, Heartbroken, and Hurling Oneself Off Cliffs

Lisa Harper

I will turn to this book in the future, because as a ministry wife my life almost always feels overextended, but Lisa’s encouraging words, draws me back to the reason, I do what I do and why I love what we do….and that is solely for God’s glory!

Mary

Would you consider your life stretched to the limit?

Are you a burn-the-candle-at-both-ends kind of gal with lots of room for improvement when it comes to creating margins for rest? But you actually love it and wouldn’t want it any other way? Well, so does Lisa Harper.

In her humorous and packed-with-biblical-wisdom way, Lisa shows us that it is possible for a frazzled nature to be glorifying to the Lord. Every late-night conversation with a hurting friend and each precious, adopted child needing a little extra tender loving care—exhausting, yet imperative, ways to be extensions of the gospel. In each of these vignettes illustrating Lisa’s overextended life, we learn that even in the middle of our own pure motives and hectic schedules, it is only by resting in God’s sovereign mercy that we are able to keep risking our hearts to serve his people and fulfill the callings he has placed on us.

Real life . . . abundant life . . . godly life is about loving Jesus and the people he allows us to rub shoulders with well—which means some days you’ll be stretched emotionally and physically. You’ll feel overextended. Thankfully God will expand our hearts and calendars to accommodate the calling. He is in the business of supplying us with new mercies every morning . . . new candles to burn, for more lives needing his light.

Jesus > Religion: Why He Is So Much Better Than Trying Harder, Doing More, and Being Good Enough

Jesus > Religion: Why He Is So Much Better Than Trying Harder, Doing More, and Being Good Enough

Jefferson Bethke

This is an encouraging,challenging book that will provide fresh revelations of the Fathers love toward you! It will change how you view yourself,your relationship with the Father,and how you view others around you! WELL worth the time and investment!

Amber Scott

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Abandon dead, dry, rule-keeping and
embrace the promise of being truly known and deeply loved.

Jefferson
Bethke burst into the cultural conversation in 2012 with a passionate,
provocative poem titled “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus.” The 4-minute
video literally became an overnight sensation, with 7 million YouTube views in
its first 48 hours (and 23+ million in a year). The message blew up on
social-media, triggering an avalanche of responses running the gamut from encouraged
to enraged.

In Jesus > Religion, Bethke unpacks similar
contrasts that he drew in the poem—highlighting the difference between teeth
gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope. With
refreshing candor he delves into the motivation behind his message, beginning with
the unvarnished tale of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based,
fake-smile existence that sapped his strength and led him down a path of
destructive behavior.
Bethke is quick to acknowledge that he’s not a
pastor or theologian, but simply a regular, twenty-something who cried out for
a life greater than the one for which he had settled. Along his journey, Bethke
discovered the real Jesus, who
beckoned him beyond the props of false religion.

The Daniel Cure: The Daniel Fast Way to Vibrant Health

The Daniel Cure: The Daniel Fast Way to Vibrant Health

Susan Gregory

I strongly recommend this book for the facts that are outlined and it goes over medical conditions. My motto is Eat Clean-Live, and that is what I want to do!

classicmom

One of the most popular fasts in recent years has been the Daniel Fast, a 21-day period of prayer and fasting based on the Old Testament prophet’s fasts recorded in Daniel 1 and Daniel 10.

The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, in which certain foods are restricted and others are consumed. This fast is similar to a ‘purified’ vegan diet; in addition to the exclusion of all animal products, no additives, preservatives, sweeteners, caffeine, alcohol, white flour, or processed foods are allowed. With the Daniel Fast people can eat as much Daniel-Fast-friendly food as they would like. Though most people begin the Daniel Fast for a spiritual purpose, many are amazed by the physical transformation that takes place. Many with high cholesterol experience a drop to healthy levels; people who have wrestled with weight issues are suddenly able to lose the pounds. The vast majority of participants following the Daniel Fast report a general sense of well-being and increased energy. Recent published scientific studies of the Daniel Fast have confirmed these findings, with additional benefits, such as a reduction in systemic inflammation, a reduction in blood pressure, and an improvement in antioxidant defenses.

The Daniel Cure will help readers take the next step by focusing on the health benefits of the Daniel Fast. By following the advice in this book, readers will convert the Daniel Fast from a once-a-year spiritual discipline into a new way of life that can begin any time of the year. In a nation suffering an epidemic of obesity and its resulting ills, The Daniel Cure may be just what the Great Physician ordered.

The Daniel Cure includes a 21-Day Daniel Cure Devotional, four chapters detailing the lifestyle diseases of obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation, eleven chapters of recipes and meal planning advice, a recipe index, complete nutritional guidance, and an appendix detailing ‘The Science behind the Daniel Fast.’

The House that Love Built

The House that Love Built

Beth Wiseman

I really enjoyed this book! It held my attention and I did not want to put it down until I was finished.

Mom of 5 kids in AR

Brooke has only loved one man, her late husband. Owen’s rebuilding after a painful divorce. Can a mysterious house bring them together for a second chance at love?

In the charming town of Smithville, Texas, Brooke Holloway is raising two young children on her own, supporting them by running the family hardware store. The last thing on her mind is falling in love. But she’s intrigued when a stranger moves to town and buys the old Hadley mansion. She’s always heard that house holds a secret—maybe even a treasure—and she can’t wait to see inside. When she meets the new owner and they spend time together, she can’t deny the attraction. Could God be giving her another chance at happiness? Or is she betraying her late husband’s memory by even thinking that way?

Owen Saunders bought the Hadley place to spite his cheating ex-wife. She’d always wanted to restore an old house in Smithville. Now he’s going to do it without her. But if anything needs restoration, it is Owen’s heart. Then he meets Brooke and her kids and finds himself tempted by love. Can he bring himself to trust a woman again?

Throw an eccentric uncle into the mix, along with the town’s teenage troublemaker, and even a finicky cat—and one thing becomes clear: God is bringing them all together for a reason.

A Promise Kept

A Promise Kept

Robin Lee Hatcher

Robin Lee Hatcher is one author whose books I will buy just on the strength of her name on the cover alone.

Susan Snodgrass

God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. But neither her husband nor her marriage had been saved.

What had become of His promise?

Tony Kavanagh had been Allison’s dream-come-true. They were in love within days, engaged within weeks, married and pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been extinguished by unexpected trials.

The day Allison issued her husband an ultimatum, she thought it might save him. She never expected he would actually leave. She was certain God had promised to heal; it was clear that she’d misunderstood.

Now, living in the quiet mountain cabin she inherited from her single, self-reliant Great Aunt Emma, Allison must come to terms with her grief and figure out how to adapt to small town life. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma’s attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly like herself.

As Allison reads the incredible story of Emma’s life in the 1920s and 1930s, she is forced to ask a difficult question: Does she really surrender every piece of her life to the Lord?

Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher’s emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers—in His own time and His own ways.

Stones for Bread

Stones for Bread

Christa Parrish

I liked reading this story. Makes you stop and thank God for the blessing of friends and family.

bookloverinboston

A solitary artisan. A legacy of bread-baking. And one secret that could collapse her entire identity.

Liesl McNamara’s life can be described in one word: bread. From her earliest memory, her mother and grandmother passed down the mystery of baking and the importance of this deceptively simple food. And now, as the owner of Wild Rise bake house, Liesl spends every day up to her elbows in dough, nourishing and perfecting her craft.

But the simple life she has cultivated is becoming quite complicated. Her head baker brings his troubled grandson into the bakeshop as an apprentice. Her waitress submits Liesl’s recipes to a popular cable cooking show. And the man who delivers her flour—a single father with strange culinary habits—seems determined to win Liesl’s affection.

When Wild Rise is featured on television, her quiet existence appears a thing of the past. And then a phone call from a woman claiming to be her half-sister forces Liesl to confront long-hidden secrets in her family’s past. With her precious heritage crumbling around her, the baker must make a choice: allow herself to be buried in detachment and remorse, or take a leap of faith into a new life.

Filled with both spiritual and literal nourishment, Stones for Bread provides a feast for the senses from award-winning author Christa Parrish.

“A quietly beautiful tale about learning how to accept the past and how to let go of the parts that tie you down.” —RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars, TOP PICK!
