Spiritual Parenting: An Awakening for Today’s Families

Michelle Anthony

This book isn’t just a how to on parenting. I really enjoyed this book. I think others will too. Check it out.

Amanda Delis

It’s hard enough to train kids to behave, but good behavior isn’t what Jesus calls for in the Bible. He wants hearts and souls that are shaped in vibrant faith and love toward God and others. How can parents cultivate this in their children? In this book Dr. Michelle Anthony shares practical examples and biblical insight on the spiritual role of parenting.

Spiritual Parenting introduces the simple but revolutionary concept that parents are, by the power of God’s Spirit, to obey and depend on God in order to create an environment God can use to beckon their children to Him.

Forget Me Not (Love Blossoms in Oregon Series)

Can a Lost Love be Redeemed?
Baker City, Oregon, 1881

Seven years ago, Julia McKenzie rejected the man she loved, wanting to experience more of life. Now, at the age of twenty-four, she regrets that decision. What will Seth think of her, when they encounter one another hundreds of miles from home? Will the man she cared for understand the direction her life has taken and love her in spite of her choices?

Pastor Seth Russell has never completely forgotten the girl he once courted. When she shows up in his new home of Baker City, all those feelings return. But why is she sneaking around town late at night? Even more important, will she reject him and break his heart again, or can God heal the breach between them?

Forget Me Not is part of the historical romance, Love Blossoms in Oregon series, published by David C Cook. This book can stand alone, but is better enjoyed when reading the series and getting acquainted with the full cast of characters from the Love Blossoms in Oregon series.

From the Library Journal Review for book 2 in the series, Wishing on Buttercups.

“Readers will be swept up by the blossoming romance in this second book (after Blowing on Dandelions) in Ferrell’s historical series about the lives of those who traveled on the Oregon Trail. It’s sure to engross fans of best-selling authors Johanna Lindsey and Maeve Binchy.”
Library Journal Review – 2/15/14
Ferrell, Miralee. Wishing on Buttercups. David C. Cook. (Love Blossoms in Oregon, Bk. 2)

“An amazing, deeply emotional story. Each of the characters is so sympathetic and well drawn that it was impossible to put the book down. Miralee Ferrell’s characters are appealing, with a touching and believable faith journey, and the romance is lovely.”

Roxanne Rustand, Author of Duty to Protect

Miralee Ferrell creates a solid five-star novella that is both concise and far-reaching in its message of forgiveness and love. Gentle romance combines seamlessly with the struggles of characters and a town coming to terms with their own prejudices and vocations.

Made to Crave Action Plan Participant's Guide: Your Journey to Healthy Living

Made to Crave Action Plan Participant’s Guide: Your Journey to Healthy Living

Lysa TerKeurst

This book is a great help with the weight loss journey. It is a wonderful companion to the “Made to Crave” book.

leslierelivn

According to New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst, craving isn’t a bad thing, but we must realize God created us to crave so we’d ultimately desire more of Him in our lives. Many of us have misplaced that craving, overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. Made to Crave Action Plan—a follow-up curriculum to Made to Crave—will help women implement a long-term plan of action for healthy living. In this six-session video-based study, women will be encouraged by Bible teaching from Lysa, uplifted by testimonies from women like Christian music chart-topper Mandisa, and empowered with healthy living tips from Dr. Ski Chilton, an expert in molecular medicine. This curriculum will help women who found their “want to” by participating in the Made to Crave study master the “how to” of living a healthy physical life as well as cultivate a rich and full relationship with God. Made to Crave Action Plan gives women of all ages Biblical encouragement for both their physical and spiritual journeys plus healthy living tips for use in their everyday lives. Designed for use with the video.

The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules

The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules

Carolyn Custis James

Okay, but is this book just for women? Definitely not. First, it’s wonderful exegesis of biblical text. Granted the story of Ruth contains women, but that shouldn’t impact the readership. Yes, many of the applications are for women, but not exclusively. Think that submission, love, kindness, generosity, etc. are primarily female virtues…then you need to read this book! Highly recommended.

E-Cowboy

This isn’t the Ruth, the Naomi, or the Boaz we thought we knew. Carolyn James has unearthed startling new insights from this well-worn story … insights that have life-changing implications for you. Naomi is no longer regarded as a bitter, complaining woman, but as a courageous overcomer. A Female Job. Ruth (typically admired for her devotion to Naomi and her deference to Boaz) turns out to be a gutsy risk-taker and a powerful agent for change among God’s people. She lives outside the box, and her love for Yahweh and Naomi compels her to break the rules of social and religious convention at nearly every turn. Boaz, the Kinsman Redeemer, is repeatedly caught off-guard by Ruth’s initiatives. His partnership with her models the kind of male/female relationships that the gospel intends for all who follow Jesus. Carolyn James drills down deeper into the story where she uncovers in the Old Testament the same passionate, counter-cultural, rule-breaking gospel that Jesus modeled and taught his followers to pursue. Within this age-old story is a map to radical levels of love and sacrifice, combined with the message that God is counting on his daughters to build his kingdom. The Gospel of Ruth vests every woman’s life with kingdom purposes and frees us to embrace wholeheartedly God’s calling, regardless of our circumstances or season of life. This story of two women who have lost everything contains a profound message: God created women not to live in the shadowy margins of men or of the past, but to emerge as courageous activists for his kingdom.

A Fire Within (These Highland Hills Book #3)

A Fire Within (These Highland Hills Book #3)

Kathleen Morgan

Morgan uses dialect well, although I lost count of the dizzying amount of times characters told each other, “Dinna fash yerself” (or as we might say, “chill out!”). The men are braw and the women are bonny. The author excels at enriching her story with historical details; one of the richest descriptions in the book concerns a “clarsach,” or a lap harp carved with mythical beasts that represent Christ in different ways.

FaithfulReader.com

Gut Instincts: Dispatches from the Wide Open Space Between Sickness and Health (Kindle Single)

Gut Instincts: Dispatches from the Wide Open Space Between Sickness and Health (Kindle Single)

Heather Abel

A terrific essay, funny and empathetic, perceptive and self-reflective. Heather Abel manages to capture both her hope for a cure and her skepticism about her desire to believe in each new treatment that comes along. It reminded me of Susan Sontag and Elaine Scarry. There’s a lot here to think about for everyone whether or not you have celiac.

Anonymous

In 2000, Heather Abel, a journalist and grad student, awoke from sedation at NYU Hospital to find three doctors standing over her bed. They told her that she had the worst case they’d ever seen of a rare Scandinavian disease called celiac. At first, this diagnosis – and its requirement of total adherence to a gluten-free diet – seemed like the simple answer to a lifetime of strange symptoms including anemia, insomnia, pneumonia, mouth ulcers, missed periods, and neck pain so severe that for months preceding the diagnosis she hadn’t been able to turn her head.

But even on the diet – and as glutenphobia erupted in this country, with nearly a third of Americans avoiding gluten —Abel still didn’t feel well. When doctors, nutritionists, and websites all offered contradicting information on gluten and diet, she began to panic. How would she know what to eat?

In this powerful, wide-ranging and emotional story about the limits of medical knowledge, Abel discovers why she wasn’t diagnosed with celiac as a child. She considers how environmental fears and Internet anecdotes lead people to avoid gluten. And she grapples with the question that confronts us all: how to live calmly, even joyfully, in the face of uncertainty.

Heather Abel worked as a reporter and news editor in Colorado and San Francisco and taught creative writing at the New School University and UMass Amherst. She lives with her family in western Massachusetts where she is finishing her first novel.

Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity

Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity

Jen Hatmaker

I feel very passionate about this book being the catalyst needed to kick you in the pants, get you diving back into your Bible, and making a big difference in your communities–both locally and globally. It may help you, as it did me, by simply putting out there that many of us feel a real disconnect between the church and God’s Word.

Cassandra Hale

Interrupted follows the author’s messy journey through life and church and into living on mission. Snatching Jen from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, “What is really the point of My Church? What have I really asked of you?” She was far too busy doing church than being church, even as a pastor’s wife, an author of five Christian books, and a committed believer for 26 years. She discovered she had missed the point.

Christ brought Jen and her family to a place of living on mission by asking them tough questions, leading them through Scripture, and walking together with them on the path. Interrupted invites readers to take a similar journey.
