The Centurion's Wife (Acts of Faith Book #1)

The Centurion’s Wife (Acts of Faith Book #1)

Janette Oke, Davis Bunn

Janette Oke & Davis Bunn have wrote yet another wonderful read! Much like the Song of Acadia series, I had trouble putting the book down.

Ella Andrews

Janette Oke has dreamed for years of retelling a story in a biblical time frame from a female protagonist’s perspective, and Davis Bunn is elated to be working with her again on this sweeping saga of the dramatic events surrounding the birth of Christianity…and the very personal story of Leah, a young Jewess of mixed heritage trapped in a vortex of competing political agendas and private trauma.

Caught up in the maelstrom following the death of an obscure rabbi in the Roman backwater of first-century Palestine, Leah finds herself also engulfed in her own turmoil–facing the prospect of an arranged marriage to a Roman soldier, Alban, who seems to care for nothing but his own ambitions. Head of the garrison near Galilee, he has been assigned by Palestine’s governor to ferret out the truth behind rumors of a political execution gone awry. Leah’s mistress, the governor’s wife, secretly commissions Leah also to discover what really has become of this man whose death–and missing body–is causing such furor.

This epic drama is threaded with the tale of an unlikely romance and framed with dangers and betrayals from unexpected sources. At its core, The Centurion’s Wife unfolds the testing of loyalties–between two young people whose inner searchings they cannot express, between their irreconcilable heritages, and ultimately between their humanity and the Divine they yearn to encounter.

HearthLand: The Greatest of These (Episode 20)

Chautona Havig

Love this series! Thanks Chautona for sharing good, clean, uplifting Christian fiction with your readers. Each time I read an episode, I am always disappointed the next chapter will have to wait. Page turning and entertaining.

Jeniver

HearthLand is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes.

Taking a step back in time–deliberately.

After a trip to Walden Farm and an afternoon talking to Chad and Willow Tesdall, Ralph Myner caught a vision for what life could be like. Against the advice of his nephew, Ralph sinks his entire retirement account into an incredibly risky venture.

Harlan Walker thinks his uncle has gone crazy. With the project in motion, all he can do is try to find people to invest their time, money, and even their lives into Ralph’s project before the man ends up broke and without means to survive.

People come from all walks of life as they embrace a new world–the world of HearthLand.

Episode 20: The vandalism doesn’t end with Kate and Janie’s place, and The Agency’s theory appears to be incomplete. The residents “mother” Ralph a bit as he endures forced “recuperation” and instead, drive him crazy.
Ramiro and Susannah talk to Kirk and things get dicey. Fireworks explode in several directions, and leave everyone wondering what sparks were ignited by them!

Raising a Princess: Eight Essential Virtues To Teach Your Daughter

Raising a Princess: Eight Essential Virtues To Teach Your Daughter

John Croyle

I enjoyed this book and found it to be very thought provoking. I think it would make a great addition to any parent’s reading list that desires to raise a daughter worthy of the KING.

Amazon Customer

The Bible’s frequently referenced chapter of Proverbs 31 defines godly womanhood. In Raising a Princess, greatly respected child advocate John Croyle asks, “How do you equip a daughter to become the kind of woman who is described in Proverbs 31?”

After all, a woman like that doesn’t appear out of nowhere. Somebody taught her to rise before dawn to provide for her household. Somebody gave her the moral compass to reach out her hand to the needy. Somebody taught her the business principles that made it possible for her to consider a field and buy it. Perhaps most importantly, somebody gave her a sufficiently strong sense of self that made it possible for her to go out and make a huge impact on the world around her.

Raising a Princess begins with the end in mind. The end is the Proverbs 31 woman; Croyle keeps her squarely in view as he looks at what parenting techniques help the reader to raise a princess who will someday be a queen.

Based on Croyle’s life and experience parenting more than 1,800 abused and neglected children at Big Oak Ranch, alongside his two biological children, the book is organized around eight virtues a parent can build in his or her princess:

Then change the letters as follows:

P: Praiseworthiness

R: Righteousness

I: Initiative

N: Nurture

C: Character

E: Empowerment

S: Servant-Heartedness

S: Stability

Disability and the Gospel: How God Uses Our Brokenness to Display His Grace

Disability and the Gospel: How God Uses Our Brokenness to Display His Grace

Michael S. Beates

But as this book explains, churches need to work to accommodate disabled people. Disabilities are important to the church. It is important that they be seen and supported in their needs by the church.

K. Davis

Michael Beates’s concern with disability issues began nearly 30 years ago when his eldest child was born with multiple profound disabilities. Now, as more families like Michael’s are affected by a growing number of difficulties ranging from down syndrome to autism to food allergies, the need for church programs and personal paradigm shifts is greater than ever.

Working through key Bible passages on brokenness and disability while answering hard questions, Michael offers here helpful principles for believers and their churches. He shows us how to embrace our own brokenness and then to embrace those who are more physically and visibly broken, bringing hope and vision to those of us who need it most.

Greetings from the Flipside

Greetings from the Flipside

Rene Gutteridge

I expected this book to be funny just from the title and the cover, and I was correct. I loved the humor found in this book, along with the romance. The idea of having her write greetings cards was wonderful. You usually hear about a book being involved, so this idea was new and refreshing.

Book Reader

Hope Landon has been rewriting other people’s greeting cards since she was six years old. There’s always a funnier caption in there somewhere. She’s ready to chase her creative dreams in New York City with her fiancé—until he leaves Hope at the altar.

That may give her something to write about . . .

Hope disappears for the time that would have been the couple’s month-long honeymoon, and upon returning learns of her own funeral. Everyone concluded Hope must have killed herself after being jilted. Needing a fresh start more than ever, she heads for the Big Apple only to discover it isn’t easy to rent a place when you’ve been declared dead.

Taking shelter at the YMCA, Hope lands a job at an inspirational greeting card company assisting Jake, the guy who shut down his organization’s humor department. She has lost her faith in love; he needs to find something or someone that will make him laugh again.

Fun and faithful, Greetings from the Flipside will keep turning over in your mind.

Levi's Will

Levi’s Will

W. Dale Cramer

Once again, Cramer shows us how the lessons of the past still apply today. His ability to do so through works of fiction is nothing short of miraculous.

Eric Wilson

Winner of the 2006 Christy Award for Contemporary Fiction

Dusk. An Amish farm in Ohio. Will’s father doesn’t recognize him at first–it’s been eight years–so he holds a match up to Will’s face to see him better. “I thought you were dead,” Levi Mullet says, then blows out the match and walks away.

This is not how it’s supposed to be. Where’s the fatted calf? The party?

For years, Will has worked to overcome the ban of his father and the Old Order Amish community. Only now, when the life of his own son hangs in the balance, does he begin to see the truth–that love is the proof of God, and forgiveness the proof of love.

Levi’s Will is the mesmerizing story of an Amishman seeking to build a bridge across three generations.

Raptor 6 (The Quiet Professionals, Book 1)

Ronie Kendig

Once I started reading this novel, I found myself in one relaxed state like you do when you return to familiar ground. It was so good to be back in the world of the military that Kendig so masterfully creates.

Peter Younghusband

One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life

One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life

Mitch Horowitz

This is the first book I have ever read that focused on researching the historical importance of the positive thinking philosophy on American society.

Joseph J. Truncale

From the millions-strong audiences of Oprah and The Secret to the mass-media ministries of evangelical figures like Joel Osteen and T. D. Jakes, to the motivational bestsellers and New Age seminars to the twelve-step programs and support groups of the recovery movement and to the rise of positive psychology and stress-reduction therapies, this idea–to think positively–is metaphysics morphed into mass belief. This is the biography of that belief.

No one has yet written a serious and broad-ranging treatment and history of the positive-thinking movement. Until now. For all its influence across popular culture, religion, politics, and medicine, this psycho-spiritual movement remains a maligned and misunderstood force in modern life. Its roots are unseen and its long-range impact is unacknowledged. It is often considered a cotton-candy theology for New Agers and self-help junkies. In response, One Simple Idea corrects several historical misconceptions about the positive-thinking movement and introduces us to a number of colorful and dramatic personalities, including Napoleon Hill and Norman Vincent Peale, whose books and influence have touched the lives of tens of millions across the world.

The Truth about Carbs: How to Eat Just the Right Amount of Carbs to Slash Fat, Look Great Naked, & Live Lean Year-Round

The Truth about Carbs: How to Eat Just the Right Amount of Carbs to Slash Fat, Look Great Naked, & Live Lean Year-Round

Nate Miyaki

I am a big fan of Nate Miyaki. He backs everything up with cited studies, and everything he says makes perfect sense. Having read some of his previous works, in addition to his blog and Quora posts, I already had a good idea of what I was going to find in this book.

John Smith

Free Yourself From Carbophobia

Carbs. The very word strikes fear in the heart of many these days. They make you fat, right? And they lead to diabetes and a host of other ailments…right? Chances are, if you’re trying to lose weight, you’ve probably tried a low-carb diet. But did it work for you long-term? If you’re still stuck in the yo-yo diet rut, still struggling with a muffin top, still reluctant to attend that high school reunion or beach vacation, then you need to get your facts straight. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally get your diet ducks in a row and be lean for life?

Carbs Aren’t the Devil

Did you know that both high-carb diets and low-carb diets can help you lose fat? The trick is figuring out which diet will work for you. Up until now, that was a guessing game that involved a lot of self-experimentation with a host of possible negative side effects if you chose incorrectly—fatigue, depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction. This happens a lot if your diet doesn’t match your lifestyle. But how do you know which diet will work for you? How many carbs should you be eating? After all, you want all the benefits of eating carbs—sound sleep, better performance, improved mood (and help “below the belt”)—but you don’t want to run the risk of gaining body fat or losing muscle.

Finally, a Sane and Sensible Weight Loss Plan

Whether you’re looking to get ripped or simply looking to get off the couch, Nate Miyaki has the diet plan for you. The Truth About Carbs is way more than a book about carbohydrates; it’s a complete, step-by-step fat loss system that can fit any lifestyle and help you attain whatever goals you’ve set for yourself. This book contains everything you need to know to slash fat and build muscle, whether you’re an office worker or an elite athlete. No more guessing games. No more excuses. Do some simple calculations and head out to the grocery store, then get ready to get lean for life. It’s really that simple.

The traditional biscuits in this book encompass a number of types, from beaten biscuits of the Old South and England, to Angel Biscuits—a yeast biscuit sturdy enough to split and fill but light enough to melt in your mouth.

“In 1945 the war ended. The Germans surrendered, and the ghetto was liberated. Out of over a quarter of a million people, about 800 walked out of the ghetto. Of those who survived, only twelve were children. I was one of the twelve.” For more than fifty years after the war, Syvia, like many Holocaust survivors, did not talk about her experiences in the Lodz ghetto in Poland. She buried her past in order to move forward. But finally she decided it was time to share her story, and so she told it to her niece, who has re-told it here using free verse inspired by her aunt. This is the true story of Syvia Perlmutter—a story of courage, heartbreak, and finally survival despite the terrible circumstances in which she grew up. A timeline, historical notes, and an author’s note are included.

“An authenticity that showcases her own spirituality.” –Beth Wiseman

The Amish Bride

Like most Mountain Amish girls, Mary King has always dreamed of her wedding day. But she never imagined that a sudden, irresistible kiss would result in marriage to the handsome Englischer professor studying her unique community. Or that doing the truly honorable thing means keeping their relationship chaste so both she and Dr. Jude Lyons can someday go their separate ways.

But when Mary accompanies her husband-in-name-only to Atlanta to meet his wealthy, overbearing family, she’s tempted more than ever by Jude’s kindness, humor–and vulnerability. And when a wrenching misunderstanding causes her to return heartbroken to her remote Appalachian home, she’s certain she’s lost the real love they have found…and the shared future she’s come to want so much. But a crisis of more than faith will work surprising miracles–and show Mary that love is strong enough to make the impossible come true.

M.Fields

Kate Weaver returns home to her family’s farm in Apple Lake, Wisconsin, battered and bruised and carrying a secret. She is not yet baptized and has spent the past year at a music conservatory in Milwaukee, living among the English. Music is Kate’s passion, and she is very good, so she faces a difficult choice; she must either give up her family and home to pursue her talents or come home and be baptized and give up on her dreams. And with Nathaniel King, the handsome neighbor boy she grew up with, paying attention to her, the choice of whether to return to school in the fall is even harder. Kate wins a starring role in an upcoming opera, and as she wrestles with pressure from her family and her newfound feelings for Nathaniel, she is also haunted by what happened to her just before she left school: she fought to protect her friends against an angry ex and landed the man in intensive care. Will the consequences of that battle be the end of everything she’s ever wanted? Will Nathaniel wait around while she tries to figure out God’s plan for her life?
