The Three Wise Women

The Three Wise Women

Christin Ditchfield

Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna. Three very different women, at different ages and stages of life. One single, one married, one widowed. One just beginning to experience life. One coping with the challenges and changes of midlife. And one coming close to the end of her life.

But these women had one thing in common. They chose to submit to God’s will, even when it didn’t seem to make sense. Take a closer look at their words and actions, and see how each woman had a unique purpose in God’s great plan to bring His Son to earth.
A willing heart, a hearing heart, and a faithful heart.

The Three Wise Men, though mentioned only briefly in the Gospel of Matthew, are well-known characters in the Christmas story. But we know very little about them—not even their names, or if in fact there were three of them.

But the Scriptures do teach us for certain about three wise women—Mary, mother of Jesus; Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist; and Anna, a prophetess who proclaimed the good news of Jesus’ birth.

Each woman played an important role in the Christmas story. They didn’t give Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, as the wise men did. But they did offer Him their most precious possessions: their hearts.

The Heroic Path: In Search of the Masculine Heart

The Heroic Path: In Search of the Masculine Heart

John Sowers

What makes a man? When John Sowers’ twin girls were born, it exposed a crushing fear: he was afraid to be a dad because he still didn’t feel like a man. His search begins with a personal examination: his lack of “stereotypical man-skills,” passiveness in the face of abusive bosses and his relationship with his wife. His quest for the “wild masculine” takes him to Alaska, where meets a master guide and faces a bear, resulting in a “threshold moment.” John discovers the path to masculinity is rooted in ancient rites of initiation, rites which modern men lack.

Walk with John on his personal exploration of what it means to be a man. Move through inadequacy and passivity. Leave moms house and turn a deaf ear to the popular voice. Confront Something Awful – the deep fear that causes you to pre-fail. Follow the steps of the One True Myth, as Jesus moved from carpenter into Messiah, leaving the village, going under water, into wilderness and back to the village to save it.

Spurgeon's Sorrows: Realistic Hope for those who suffer from depression

Spurgeon’s Sorrows: Realistic Hope for those who suffer from depression

Zack Eswine

Christians should have the answers, shouldn’t they? Depression affects many people both personally and through the ones we love. Depression is not new though, indeed the “Prince of Preachers” C.H. Spurgeon struggled with depression and talked openly about it. Here Zack Eswine draws from Spurgeon’s experiences to encourage us. What Spurgeon found in his darkness can serve as a light in our own darkness. This is not a self-help guide, but rather “a handwritten note of one who wishes you well.”

The Ultimate Gift Series

The Ultimate Gift Series

Jim Stovall

For the first time, enjoy this collection of FOUR inspirational Ultimate Gift stories.

#1 The Ultimate Gift
What would you do to inherit a million dollars? Would you be willing to change your life? Jason Stevens is about to find out in Jim Stovall’s The Ultimate Gift.

Red Stevens has died, and the older members of his family receive their millions with greedy anticipation. But a different fate awaits young Jason, whom Stevens, his great-uncle, believes may be the last vestige of hope in the family.

“Although to date your life seems to be a sorry excuse for anything I would call promising, there does seem to be a spark of something in you that I hope we can fan into a flame. For that reason, I am not making you an instant millionaire.”

What Stevens does give Jason leads to The Ultimate Gift. Young and old will take this timeless tale to heart.

#2 The Ultimate Life
Jason Stevens found out he had to jump through hoops to maybe get an unnamed inheritance from his billionaire grandfather, he was not amused. By the time he’d finished learning the lessons he’d become a different man. Ready to tackle the duties of running a multi-billion dollar trust, he is once again derailed, this time by his pugnacious family. Not content with their cattle ranches and oil fields, his aunts, uncles, and even his parents are determined to see every last dime entrusted to their own self-serving pockets.

With none of the reluctance he initially showed for the Gift, he eagerly accepts the challenge and pushes himself to prove not only to his family and the court but also to the world, that with determination and the simple tenets of the Gift, anyone can lead The Ultimate Life.
#3 The Ultimate Journey
In the touching third installment of the series, Jason learns that life’s journey is all about traveling well—not about the destination. In The Ultimate Journey, readers will discover the secrets of a successful life, including:
• Money helps pay for the trip, but should never be a destination …
• Friends make the journey worthwhile …
• Laughter lightens the load of any rough or rocky uphill road …
• Time may be allotted in small or large portions but the moment is what counts …
… and so much more.

#4 The Gift of a Legacy
Theodore Hamilton’s good friend and Joey Anderson’s great-grandmother, Sally Mae Anderson, touched many lives during her lifetime. Joey, however, has little interest in his great-grandmother’s final wishes after she dies—until he learns that she’s left him Anderson House, her successful bed-and-breakfast. But he will only inherit if he lives at Anderson House and follows Sally Mae’s instructions. How can Joey ever meet her challenge?

Jason Stevens knows how Joey is feeling. After all, Jason’s grandfather left him a similar inheritance years before—and his life has never been the same. The Gift of a Legacy reminds us that one legacy can change the world forever.
