R. C. Sproul

The “Classic Theology Series” continues Dr. Sproul’s legacy. How Then Shall We Worship? is a landmark look at God’s design for authentic worship.

Today’s church cannot seem to agree on what corporate worship should look like. Some choose contemporary forms, others prefer traditional expressions. Yet pop culture or the status quo do not hold the answers. God’s Word does.

Dr. Sproul digs deep into rich Scripture passages to provide a guide for worship today. Readers will discover that God intends worship to be an unforgettable encounter between Himself and His people—a joyous experience engaging the worshiper’s entire being.

Three Little Words (Walker Family): A Novella

Three Little Words (Walker Family): A Novella

Melissa Tagg

Ava Kingsley and Seth Walker might be the most unlikely friends ever. The only thing these two polar opposites have in common is a knack for wordsmithing. Back in college, they were known for their written sparring in the campus newspaper’s popular “He Says/She Says” column.

At their ten-year college reunion, they pick up right where they left off. Except this time their squabbling leads to a surprising turn: friendship and a year-long exchange of emails. So when Ava approaches a crossroads in her athletics department career in Minnesota, Seth is quick to offer the open apartment above the restaurant he’s been remodeling in Maple Valley, Iowa.

Ava doesn’t know where her career will lead her next, but she’s starting to suspect she might see Seth as more than a pen pal. Which would be exciting…except for the fact that he only sees her as a friend.

As Maple Valley grows on her, Ava wonders if there might be something here for her even though Seth is unavailable. And maybe, just maybe, after all the words the two of them have exchanged over the years, they’ll finally be able to say the three that matter most.

Three Little Words is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Melissa Tagg’s new series about the charismatic Walker family and the endearing town of Maple Valley!

A Life That Says Welcome helps you make others feel refreshed, rather than impressed, in your presence. It’s packed with inspiring tips on how to

decorate well on a budget
make the most of your space (no matter how small)
be prepared for unexpected company
create delicious, simple dishes your guests will enjoy

You’ll be encouraged to not only open your home but to open your life as an avenue for God’s love everywhere you go.

Your Life Still Counts: How God Uses Your Past to Create a Beautiful Future

Tracie Miles

God still has a plan for you–not in spite of your past, but because of it!

Do regret and shame over your failures, sins, and shortcomings make you wonder how you could ever be loved, much less used, by a holy God? Tracie Miles felt the same way until she discovered the path to healing, peace, and significance.

She helps you recognize that God not only has a purpose for you, but He has prepared you for your divine purpose based specifically on the experiences of your past.

Through her own story and stories from other women who have discovered God’s purpose for their lives because of adverse experiences, Tracie helps you see how God can turn pain into purpose. You will find forgiveness and healing from the troubles of your past, discover the courage to step out of your comfort zone to help others find hope and strength, and be inspired to step into the beautiful future God divinely designed for you.

“God has a plan for your life and a purpose for your future. No matter what you’ve been through or what’s been done to you, if you’re still breathing, God isn’t finished with you yet! Let Tracie Miles help you discover your calling and the way you are uniquely equipped to make your life count!”–Renee Swope, bestselling author of A Confident Heart and Proverbs 31 Ministries’ radio cohost, “Everyday Life with Lysa & Renee”

“Tracie Miles and I share a lot of precious things: We share our love for God and His Word, we share a passion for family, and we share a life of purpose through ministry to women. Equally as precious and tender as all of that, Tracie and I share the redeeming, restoring, and life-changing love of Jesus following a past that includes the heartbreak of abortion. Regardless of what your past holds, you will laugh and you will cry as you walk with Tracie through the healing journey from heartbreak and loss to discover Your Life Still Counts! Prepare to be amazed!”–Pat Layton, author of Surrendering the Secret and A Surrendered Life

“Do the wrong choices you made in the past sometimes work their ugly way into your heart and mind today? Think God doesn’t forgive you–let alone want to use you to serve Him? Your Life Still Counts will allow you to break free from this lie as you discover the truth that God makes all things new. Yes, even you.”–Karen Ehman, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and author of seven books including LET. IT. GO.: How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith and Everyday Confetti

Ever After: Life Lessons Learned in My Castle of Chaos

Ever After: Life Lessons Learned in My Castle of Chaos

Vicki Courtney

Most every woman dreams about having a family and a building a home. We grow up on a steady diet of fairytales and chick flicks that drive our dreams . . . and leave us with a sugarcoated version of reality. We want it all: the prince, the kiss, the proposal, the ring, the castle, and eventually, the kids in smocked rompers playing cheerfully on the perfectly manicured lawn. Our hopes and dreams are pinned on the world’s version of happily-ever-after.

The problem is, the fairytales and chick flicks end where real life begins. We never see that follow-up scene where the prince and princess argue at 3 a.m. over who will get up with the colicky newborn. Or the princess reluctantly returns to work to help pay the bills and feels the stress of juggling work and family. And you certainly won’t see that part where the princess moves her last child into the dorm and realizes the bulk of her identity has been based on being a mother.

The truth is, marriage and motherhood are hard. Few of us are prepared to handle the balancing act of being a good wife and a good mother, without one or the other getting the short end of the stick. No matter how much we give or how hard we try, we never quite feel like it’s enough. And heaven help us, we always imagine every one else is doing a much better job.

In Ever After, best-selling author Vicki Courtney addresses the realities of marriage and motherhood, the difficulties and the blessings. It offers women a behind the scenes glimpse of what a fairytale really looks like on the average day for the average wife and mom. Poignant, funny, and even cathartic, Vicki shares mistakes made, lessons learned, and memories to keep. Most of all, she reflects the hope and promise that God meets us in the middle wherever we are in the journey.

Dreamality

Dreamality

Bob Coy

Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, many of us let go of our dreams. We stop trusting that anything will be different. We stop hoping that anything could get better. We stop expecting life to be full of excitement, anticipation, joy, fun, and hope. Optimism is replaced by anger, frustration, and bitterness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Bob Coy, senior pastor of the seventeen thousand-member Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale, believes that hope can be revived and we can rekindle in our heart the expectation of something more. Using the biblical story of Joseph as a running analogy, Coy looks to God as our dream-deliverer as well as the source of our dreams. He asserts that, as we come to understand God’s heart toward us and the bigger picture of our lives, we can reclaim and live out our dreams.

Sugar Fork: A Novel

Sugar Fork: A Novel

Walt Larimore

THIS CAPTIVATING STORY takes place in the Sugar Fork Valley of the Great Smoky Mountains wilderness during 1925–1926. Nate Randolph and his five unique daughters wrestle to survive after the death of Callie (his wife and their mother) as well as to maintain their farm, forests, family, and faith against an evil lumber company manager seeking to clear-cut their virgin woodland.

A cast of delightful characters, including gypsy siblings, Cherokee Indians, a granny midwife, a world-famous writer, and even a flesh-and-blood Haint, join our heroine, sixteen-year-old Abbie Randolph, in her life-and-death struggle. Abbie falls in love for the first time, helps run the farm, and mothers her independent sisters while battling to preserve her faith when senseless murders threaten to destroy her family and way of life.

Will the Randolph family survive intact? Will the farm be saved? Only a miracle could make it happen.

With the march of the industrial age, especially industrial lumbering, the roaring twenties, Prohibition, the increasing momentum for a national park, and the onslaught of a modern world, trains, and radio communication, the traditional life and ways of our Southern Highlanders were about to change forever.
