More than Desire: Hope for Women in the Shadows of Pornography

More than Desire: Hope for Women in the Shadows of Pornography

Ashley Weis

Every woman I have ever met has been burned by the desire to be good enough. And I’ve met many, many women who struggle to believe they are beautiful because their husband’s or boyfriend’s pornography addiction. After I discovered my husband’s pornography addiction, I blogged about the healing process we went through together. I was stunned by the number of women who contacted me, struggling to find their worth in the aftermath of porn crashing through the door of their marriages.

The porn industry is a billion dollar industry. It’s everywhere. And it’s affecting marriages across the globe. I thought I would have found helpful, relevant resources to aid me in healing from the damage porn caused to our marriage, but most resources said the same things over and over: “Don’t look to men for validation; look to God.” I knew that, but I wanted something deeper, something that reached into the heart of the woman healing from the pain of her husband’s porn addiction.

In More than Desire: Hope for Women in the Shadows of Pornography, I dig deeper to help women discover why their husband’s porn struggle hurts so much, how porn destroys lives, and how they can actually find hope and healing for their own hearts and their relationships.

Self-Editing On a Penny: A Comprehensive Guide (Format, Grammar, Write)

Ashlyn Forge

You’ve just written a book—a masterpiece, the next great classic, the single piece of literature that’s going to be required reading a hundred years from now long after you’re good and dead and most of mankind has been replaced by robots. But…now what?

Can you afford an editor? How do you decide on a good one? And how much of it can you do by yourself?

Grammar
Style
Syntax
Plot Development
Proofreading
Formatting
And cost-saving methods

Self-Editing on a Penny was written by an independent author FOR independent authors. Don’t make the same costly mistakes I’ve made. Self-Edit first.

Reviews

“Not to mention most grammar and self-editing books on the shelves today are stuffy snore fests. Much to my surprise and delight this does not fall into the category. I dare say this guide is engaging from beginning to end.” – Josh Byrley

“The information is presented in a way that, unlike other style guides, won’t leave you sobbing in confusion or brain-dead from grammar-related terminology dumps. Her examples are inventive but easy to understand.” – K.t. Hoyet

“What makes Self-Editing On A Penny stand out, is that Forge uses her snark and sass to illustrate how to successfully edit your project. Her examples are clever and short to the point, and her explanations aren’t bogged down in extraneously detail. If it’s your first time finishing a novel, be good to yourself and pick up Self-Editing On a Penny. It will save your sanity.” – K. Sholty

Chautona Havig

HearthLand is a serial novel released in 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 3: Between an accident on the job and a serious misunderstanding with his girlfriend, Ramiro Vega isn’t having a good month. Ralph’s month isn’t much better. His California family is in a minor panic after a phone call, and Harlan is determined to put a stop to this “crazy idea” of his uncle’s–even if it means going to Rockland and dragging the stubborn but beloved man home to Los Angeles. The days are winding down to the big event at Walden Farm, but it seems as if every obstacle short of a tornado is blocking the path.

The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization

The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization

Vishal Mangalwadi

Understand where we came from. Whether you’re an avid student of the Bible or a skeptic of its relevance, The Book That Made Your World will transform your perception of its influence on virtually every facet of Western civilization. Indian philosopher Vishal Mangalwadi reveals the personal motivation that fueled his own study of the Bible and systematically illustrates how its precepts became the framework for societal structure throughout the last millennium. From politics and science, to academia and technology, the Bible’s sacred copy became the key that unlocked the Western mind. Through Mangalwadi’s wide-ranging and fascinating investigation, you’ll discover: What triggered the West’s passion for scientific, medical, and technological advancement How the biblical notion of human dignity informs the West’s social structure and how it intersects with other worldviews How the Bible created a fertile ground for women to find social and economic empowerment How the Bible has uniquely equipped the West to cultivate compassion, human rights, prosperity, and strong families The role of the Bible in the transformation of education How the modern literary notion of a hero has been shaped by the Bible’s archetypal protagonist Journey with Mangalwadi as he examines the origins of a civilization’s greatness and the misguided beliefs that threaten to unravel its progress. Learn how the Bible transformed the social, political, and religious institutions that have sustained Western culture for the past millennium, and discover how secular corruption endangers the stability and longevity of Western civilization. Endorsements: ôThis is an extremely significant piece of work with huge global implications. Vishal brings a timely message.ö (Ravi Zacharias, author, Walking from East to West and Beyond Opinion) ôIn polite society, the mere mention of the Bible often introduces a certain measure of anxiety. A serious discussion on the Bible can bring outright contempt. Therefore, it is most refreshing to encounter this engaging and informed assessment of the BibleÆs profound impact on the modern world. Where Bloom laments the closing of the American mind, Mangalwadi brings a refreshing optimism.ö (Stanley Mattson, founder and president, C. S. Lewis Foundation) ôVishal Mangalwadi recounts history in very broad strokes, always using his cross-cultural perspectives for highlighting the many benefits of biblical principles in shaping civilization.ö (George Marsden, professor, University of Notre Dame; author, Fundamentalism and American Culture)

Saving Cicadas

Saving Cicadas

Nicole Seitz

“It was about four years ago, the last trip we ever took together–my mother, sister, grandparents and me. Course, we didn’t know it at the time. You never know something like that, like it’s the last one you’ll ever get, till it’s just a memory, hanging like mist. This is what happened that summer, true as I can tell it. Not a one of us was ever the same.” Part road trip, part mystery, and completely unexpected, Saving Cicadas picks you up in one place and puts you down someplace else entirely. It’s an eloquent reminder that life is a miracle–and even the smallest soul is a gift. “…a surprisingly creative tale that will leave readers guessing until the end.” -River Jordan, author of Saints in Limbo
