Moms in Prayer: Standing in the Gap for Your Children

Moms in Prayer: Standing in the Gap for Your Children

Fern Nichols

Great book from an inspiring woman of God! I recommend it! Very practical and encouraging look at the value and importance of praying for our children.

A. Emma

What principles enabled the concerned mom of two junior high school students to move from deciding she needed to pray for her kids at school to becoming the founder of a worldwide prayer movement called Moms In Prayer International?

Fern Nichols is a passionate believer in the power of prayer. She knows that a regular habit of prayer can change things–can bring home wayward children, heal broken marriages, and provide answers to desperate situations. Prayer can also bring a new kind of peace and contentment no matter what hardships or disappointments we face. But most important, Fern knows that through prayer we can experience, firsthand, an ever-increasing intimacy with God.

In Moms In Prayer, Fern Nichols reveals how she teaches women to pray in a way that changes their lives and the lives of those they love. She teaches the principles and practices that will not only revolutionize the way people think about prayer, but the way they do pray, leading them into a deeper intimacy with Jesus, who is always interceding on our behalf.

Sparkling with real-life stories of God at work in the lives of praying moms, Fern introduces us to the four prayers that are the foundation of the Moms In Prayer approach to prayer:

Praise–Praying according to the attributes of God

Confession–Breaking strongholds

Thanksgiving–Expressing a grateful heart

Intercession–Standing in the gap with Jesus.

What transforms these well-known elements of prayer into such a powerful force in Moms In Prayer International? Fern Nichols introduces a way of praying that energizes, creates an appetite for intimacy with God, overcomes spiritual paralysis, eliminates fear, unveils the heart and character of God, and transforms the pray-er’s life and perspective. She teaches how to pray effectively with others, how to prepare for the spiritual battles that swirl when prayer is on the move, how to persist in prayer in the face of hopelessness and despair, and how to use Scripture for effective prayer.

The Lady of Bolton Hill

The Lady of Bolton Hill

Elizabeth Camden

It pulls the heart strings of anyone who had a high-school sweetheart. Don’t most of us have that one person you look back on with nostalgic fondness. The one person who first captured your heart – if only for a brief moment – and left no bad memories in their wake? I loved this sweetness that surrounded Daniel and Clara.

Jaime Wright

When Clara Endicott and Daniel Tremain’s worlds collide after twelve years apart, the spark that was once between them immediately reignites into a romance neither of them thought possible.

But time has changed them both.

Daniel is an industrial titan with powerful enemies. Clara is an idealistic journalist determined to defend underprivileged workers.

Can they withstand the cost of their convictions while their hearts–and lives–hang in the balance?

“Camden’s evangelical Christian historical romance skillfully captures a fascinating period of railroad and other technological innovations, opium smugglers, and muckraking journalists in a dramatic tale of vengeance, ambition, and faith set against a backdrop of both privileged high society and working-class riots.” –Booklist

“This very satisfying debut novel, about the power of faith and forgiveness, will surely launch Camden well into the midst of the field of inspirational authors.” –Historical Novels Review

Journey to the Well: A Novel

Diana Wallis Taylor

The story is a wonderful example of the faithfulness of a “God who sees” and cares for His faithful people. Even in times of trouble, He is there offering a way out of our bad circumstances. And for those who choose to make the Messiah their Savior, they will be given forgiveness, peace and joy in an otherwise desperate world.

S. Winkleman

She went to the well for water. What she found there would change her life forever.

Marah is a young girl in love with her childhood friend, Jesse. When she is forced to marry an older man, she must abandon her dreams of happiness. At the mercy of men who are often only interested in using her, Marah must fight for survival. Will she ever meet a man who can save her?

The story of the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well is one of hope, redemption, and a life changed in an instant through a remarkable encounter. Jesus told her “everything she’d ever done,” but we are left to wonder at the circumstances that led her life on such a tragic path to begin with. Now from the creative mind of Diana Wallis Taylor comes the full story of the woman at the well.

This well-researched portrayal of a woman’s life in the time of Jesus opens a window into a fascinating world. Taylor’s rich descriptions of the landscapes, lifestyles, and rituals mesh easily with the emotional and very personal story of one woman who desperately seeks to rise above the difficult circumstances of her life.

Diana Wallis Taylor is an inspirational speaker and has taught writing and poetry workshops. She has published articles and short stories and is an award-winning poet and songwriter. She lives in California.

Melina Mason

The Iron Curtain has been torn open, setting Poland on the road to democracy. But can true freedom come to those still bound by tragic memories of – Florian’s Gate

When Jeffrey Sinclair takes on the challenge of assisting in a high-priced London antique shop, he discovers that more than good salesmanship to wealthy customers is required.

Alexander Kantor, his enigmatic relative and employer, has a reputation for acquiring priceless antiques under mysterious circumstances. As Jeffrey learns the business and becomes more deeply involved, he discovers that the source of the antiques is not the only secret Alexander has hidden.

And the woman Jeffrey loves, Katya Nichols, also has secrets to hide. Even as they travel to Germany and then to Poland on a buying trip for Alexander, Katya’s shrouded, undisclosed past acts as a barrier, an Iron Curtain that separates Jeffrey from her love.

His excursion into the Eastern Bloc takes Jeffrey to places he had never imagined to the secret treasure troves of Europe, to poverty-stricken men and women haunted by the past and hoarding their few valuables against a final day of reckoning.

But the journey takes him inward as well, into his own pain and the related wounds of those he loves, a place where only a divine Father can bring hope and light.

Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon Self-Control, and My Other Experiments in Everyday Life

Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon Self-Control, and My Other Experiments in Everyday Life

Gretchen Rubin

Fantastic book, well worth reading if you’re looking for a pause in your daily, hectic life.

Miriam Schuman

In the spirit of her blockbuster #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin embarks on a new project to make home a happier place.

One Sunday afternoon, as she unloaded the dishwasher, Gretchen Rubin felt hit by a wave of homesickness. Homesick—why? She was standing right in her own kitchen. She felt homesick, she realized, with love for home itself. “Of all the elements of a happy life,” she thought, “my home is the most important.” In a flash, she decided to undertake a new happiness project, and this time, to focus on home.

And what did she want from her home? A place that calmed her, and energized her. A place that, by making her feel safe, would free her to take risks. Also, while Rubin wanted to be happier at home, she wanted to appreciate how much happiness was there already.

So, starting in September (the new January), Rubin dedicated a school year—September through May—to making her home a place of greater simplicity, comfort, and love.

In The Happiness Project, she worked out general theories of happiness. Here she goes deeper on factors that matter for home, such as possessions, marriage, time, and parenthood. How can she control the cubicle in her pocket? How might she spotlight her family’s treasured possessions? And it really was time to replace that dud toaster.

Each month, Rubin tackles a different theme as she experiments with concrete, manageable resolutions—and this time, she coaxes her family to try some resolutions, as well.

With her signature blend of memoir, science, philosophy, and experimentation, Rubin’s passion for her subject jumps off the page, and reading just a few chapters of this book will inspire readers to find more happiness in their own lives.

Thief of Glory: A Novel

Thief of Glory: A Novel

Sigmund Brouwer

Thief of Glory is a unique piece of christian historical fiction in more ways than one. The majority of the story feels like it is being told from a ten-year-old boy’s perspective, although we find out later it is an old man recounting his memories of the war. Though there is a faint touch of romance, it is not remotely the focus of the story. And unlike most christian fiction, it is not a feel-good book. There are moments of humor, triumph, and inspiration, but this bittersweet novel is more haunting than uplifting, leaving the reader aching for the characters and the real people who endured such trials.

Raya

“Brouwer makes you live it….sharing each moment of an exotic and terrifying time and place in a gripping, personal way.”
—Bodie and Brock Thoene, authors of Take this Cup

A boy coming of age in a time of war…
the love that inspires him to survive.

For ten year-old Jeremiah Prins, the life of privilege as the son of a school headmaster in the Dutch East Indies comes crashing to a halt in 1942 after the Japanese Imperialist invasion of the Southeast Pacific. Jeremiah takes on the responsibility of caring for his younger siblings when his father and older stepbrothers are separated from the rest of the family, and he is surprised by what life in the camp reveals about a woman he barely knows—his frail, troubled mother.

Amidst starvation, brutality, sacrifice and generosity, Jeremiah draws on all of his courage and cunning to fill in the gap for his mother. Life in the camps is made more tolerable as Jeremiah’s boyhood infatuation with his close friend Laura deepens into a friendship from which they both draw strength.

When the darkest sides of humanity threaten to overwhelm Jeremiah and Laura, they reach for God’s light and grace, shining through his people. Time and war will test their fortitude and the only thing that will bring them safely to the other side is the most enduring bond of all.

Song of Springhill – a love story: an inspirational romance based on historical events

Cheryl McKay

The author of this beautiful story uniquely connects you with each character. Being that my grandfather died in a coal mine cave-in, I could relate to how the family members and those of the small town felt. Well written. You feel for each person, as they learn to cope with their heartbreak, as they bravely move on. I highly recommend this book.

Love2Read

From the ACFW Women’s Fiction Carol Award winning co-author of Never the Bride & screenwriter of the award-winning film, The Ultimate Gift, comes a timeless love story inspired by the historical, coal mining disasters of Springhill in the 1950s. Song of Springhill is a gripping story about searching for love, family, and faith in the midst of trials.

Could you fall in love despite the great risk of losing the one you cherish most?

Hoping for a fresh start, Hannah Wright moves to Springhill, the hometown of the father she never knew because he died in their volatile coal mines before she was born. She tracks down her aunt, Abigail Percy, and is immediately welcomed to move in with the whole Percy clan. This includes her Uncle Ray, a coal miner, and their four lively children. Suddenly, she’s surrounded by more family than she’s ever had in her life.

The day after she arrives, the mine explodes, trapping many underground, including Uncle Ray. Little did Hannah know when she set off on this new adventure how much her family was going to need her. When the Percys face a sudden lack of provision, Hannah knows she must get a job to help them. But the only industry in town that pays enough is coal mining–and the mine company doesn’t hire women.

Hannah secretly masquerades as a man and gets hired as Mel, a distant cousin of her father’s. Keeping up her charade is challenging in this tight-knit, 1950s town, where everybody knows one another.

Hannah is placed on the team of Josh Winslow, a handsome bachelor who noticed her the moment she stepped into town. It doesn’t take long for Josh to see through Hannah’s disguise as Mel, but she convinces him there’s no other way for her to help take care of her family. Understanding the pressure she’s under, he agrees to not blow Hannah’s cover–for now.

Though Hannah seems to keep Josh at arm’s length, he’s determined to chip away at her defenses and win her heart. She resists, afraid to love someone who could die at any moment in an accident underground.

Long-time miners start to sense that “the big one” is coming. Calling it a “Bump” does little to calm Hannah’s fear of the impending underground earthquake, a disaster that could come any day.

Will Josh and Hannah be among the next miners caught in a catastrophic disaster? Does Hannah stand to lose everything she’s worked so hard to rebuild?

* * *

Song of Springhill is a love story set against the backdrop of true-life disasters that plagued the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia in the 1950s. It was a town torn by tragedy that also experienced some of the most astounding, miraculous rescues the world ever watched unfold.
