Just Give Me a Little Piece of Quiet: Daily Getaways for a Mom’s Soul

Lorilee Craker

Retreat from the day’s pressures and be refreshed for tomorrow’s possibilities

Do you struggle to find a little peace for yourself in the midst of your hectic days? You’d like to step off the mommy treadmill for a little while, and set aside some time for yourself and for God.

Just Give Me a Little Piece of Quiet is your daily getaway. Bookended by Scripture, Lorilee’s stories and tips for moms in the trenches are a great way to revitalize the spiritual person inside–you know, the beautiful person hidden behind the fight-refereeing, sleep-deprived woman your kids refer to as “Hey, Mom.”

These short devotions help you laugh at life’s most embarrassing moments, remember treasured memories, and put things back into perspective. And when patience is running thin, Lorilee reminds you why you were so excited to have those little ankle-biters in the first place. It’s just what you need to survive those crazy days!

Lorilee Craker is the author of eleven books, including the New York Times bestseller Through the Storm with Lynne Spears and Money Secrets of the Amish. When she’s not shuttling her three children to hockey, gymnastics, and everywhere in between, Lorilee moonlights as an entertainment and features writer for the Grand Rapids Press, and has been published in magazines such as Parents and Parent and Child.

Church Zero: Raising 1st Century Churches out of the Ashes of the 21st Century Church

Church Zero: Raising 1st Century Churches out of the Ashes of the 21st Century Church

Peyton Jones

A radical call to reform, Church Zero is a punk-rock approach to the pressing issue of gaining ground as rapidly as the early church.

With a fresh perspective forged in the dirty trenches of international post-Christian societies, Peyton Jones pulls no punches as he brings this message to the American Church: We have lost our way.

The church is losing ground fast: losing the generation under age 30 and drawing few nonbelievers toward Christ.

Christ gave us a leadership model for commando outreach, and the church has ignored it for too long. Will we continue down the path of self-preservation, defending our stalled church structures? Or will we follow the blueprint Jesus lays out?

Church Zero challenges readers to once again become a radical, dangerous people who cannot be ignored. It’s time to break out!

The Memory

The Memory

Barbara Kaylor

Where the Honey Creek Series begins….

“Nobody but God could make this happen.”

Seven years ago, Elliot Starling fired Geneva Passion, a young sales rep in his company, accusing her of unethical conduct she vehemently denied. Now, due to a head injury from an auto accident, it is the only memory Elliot has of his life. Determined to find out why, he journeys to Geneva’s small hometown of Holly Park, Florida to confront her.

Shocked by Elliot’s arrival, Geneva is forced to deal with emotions that have troubled her for seven years, including her secret crush on the man who fired her. Stepping out on faith, Geneva agrees to help Elliot regain all his memories, but is that what they really want? Confusion, uncertainty, and hidden desires challenge their efforts to do the right thing as they draw close to each other.

Excerpt

No!” Geneva replied too quickly. “We weren’t close. We didn’t socialize outside the office. You frowned on that kind of behavior. We didn’t secretly date or anything like that. We saw each other at company parties and picnics.”

You would tell me if there had been something between us, wouldn’t you, Geneva?”

“Of course.” Geneva blinked. “Why would I keep that from you?”

Elliot shrugged. “Because it was a bad experience for you, and you wouldn’t want to relive any of it.”

There was nothing between us, Elliot. Honestly.”

“Then why do I feel such a strong connection to you? Why do I remember you and not my fiancée?”

Geneva gasped. “Y—your what? Y—you’re engaged?” An imaginary time bomb exploded in the center of her chest.

Elliot nodded. “Apparently so, but I have no recollection of her. I don’t feel anything when I’m around her except disdain and unease. She’s not a very likeable person, and she makes me feel very uncomfortable.”

“Wh—who is she?” Geneva was afraid to ask. Within seconds, her whole world had flipped over. She’d assumed Elliot was a single man without anyone in his life. She’d been foolish not to have asked earlier.

“Olivia Swanson.”

The name hit Geneva like a rock to the forehead. Her flabbergasted expression wasn’t hard to read.

“You don’t like her?” Elliot asked, intrigued by Geneva’s flustered state.

Yellow Star

Yellow Star

Jennifer Roy

“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.

The James L. Rubart Collection: Rooms, Book of Days, and The Chair

The James L. Rubart Collection: Rooms, Book of Days, and The Chair

James L. Rubart

James L. Rubart burst onto the scene with his best-selling debut novel Rooms, quickly becoming one of the most acclaimed Christian fiction writers in recent memory. Hailed as “a master storyteller” by Examiner.com, Rubart creates stories that engulf readers and make it “impossible to think of anything else until finished.” (Terri Blackstock, New York Times best-selling author)

For the first time, you can now get all three of Rubart’s novels together at once. Rooms, a profound spiritual tale spun with imaginative flair, transports you to rainy Seattle where software tycoon Micah Taylor receives a cryptic note telling of a beachfront home he inherited from an uncle he hasn’t seen in twenty-five years. Micah soon discovers there is more to this home than what is on the surface—it is in fact a physical manifestation of his soul, which God uses to heal Micah’s darkest wounds and lead him into an astonishing new destiny.

Book of Days, a fast-paced and thought provoking allegory (and “a great read, why people buy books” according to award-winning author Dan Walsh), explores the power of memories and the lengths some will go to just to keep them alive. Cameron, struggling to remember his wife who was killed two years earlier in an accident, seeks an ancient book to save his mind. But others want to claim it for more nefarious purposes.

The Chair, a dynamic fast paced thriller, tells the story of a chair claimed to have been made by Jesus Christ himself. Antique dealer Corin Roscoe, who skeptically bought the chair from an elderly lady, is forced to reconsider its authenticity after a young boy is miraculously healed after sitting in it. Word quickly spreads of the chair’s power, and Corin’s life begins to shatter as he searches for the truth about the artifact and the unexplained phenomena surrounding it. And he’s not the only one willing do almost anything to possess the power seemingly connected to the chair.
