The Truth About Godly Confidence

The Truth About Godly Confidence

Kristin N. Spencer

“God does not make any mistakes, and in His creative plan for us as His children, He is purposeful and specific.”
As a young woman I was often told that I had low self-esteem. I did not understand what true confidence was, and this negatively affected every aspect of my life. Over the last ten years, God has taken me on a journey to discover the truth about godly confidence. Although it was painful and sometimes I resisted, I would not trade those lessons for anything.
Are you tired of the unrealistic expectations that the world places on your appearance and personality? Have you experienced dark times in your past, hurtful friendships, or the despair of loneliness? This book is for you. As a plus-sized woman of God, I understand what it is like to have insecurities. Join me in a conversation where we will talk about all of the things no one feels comfortable mentioning in relation to confidence and self-esteem. At the end of our discussion, you will be faced with a choice; either you can choose to believe what God has written in the Bible about His love for you, or you can choose the wide path full of miserable and deceived company. Which path will you follow? I hope that like me, you will finally be set free from the lies that Satan uses to make us feel worthless and unconfident.

A Life of Balance

A Life of Balance

K.P. Yohannan

Balance: The Key to Life

Remember learning how to ride a bike? The hardest part was learning how to stay balanced. Once you mastered that, you were ready to go anywhere.

The same is true of life, especially for those of us who sincerely seek to follow Jesus Christ. All truth has two sides, and balanced attention to both sides of the coin is necessary to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Otherwise, our passion for the Lord can quickly turn into fanaticism and our ministry will eventually fade away.

In this short booklet, K.P. Yohannan discusses Biblical balance in 11 key areas of life, such as

*Discipline and Freedom
*Faith and Common Sense
*Love and Doctrine
*Zeal and Wisdom

Learn how to develop the balance which will keep your life and ministry healthy and honoring God.

Whatever the Cost: Facing Your Fears, Dying to Your Dreams, and Living Powerfully

Whatever the Cost: Facing Your Fears, Dying to Your Dreams, and Living Powerfully

David Benham

“Two nationally-acclaimed real estate entrepreneurs share biblical principles to revolutionize your work and family life, and give you the courage to stand up for what is right.”

This book follows the story of highly motivated and entrepreneurial twin brothers, David and Jason Benham, from their formative years and ventures into professional baseball to their rise as owners of a multi-million dollar business empire and securing an HGTV reality series. It’s a journey where the brothers learned how they must die to their dreams not just once, but twice as they walked away from baseball before being called up to the Big Show and later as their TV series was stripped away from them just before airing when the network succumbed to media pressures surrounding their faith. These experiences only helped them realize that the key to powerful living is found when you die to your dreams and face your fears, and choose to live powerfully through it all. The biblical principles they implemented to guide their work and families are revealed in practical terms to apply to our daily lives and give us courage to stand for what is right. The book will expand on principles such as:

Show that You are Faithful in Little
Be a Fountain to Others and not a Drain
Produce More in Value than You Receive
Work to Your Ability and not Your Pay
Breathe Life into All Situations
Remember that You are Human Beings, not Human Doings
Hold to a Standard of Disciplined Living
Don’t Swing at Every Pitch
Find Your Greatest Blessings on the Other Side of Your Greatest Fears

What Is the Father Like?: A Devotional Look at How God Cares for His Children

W. Phillip Keller

Come Away to Rest in God’s Care!

Too often we feel trapped in life’s hectic pace. Or bewildered by loss and hurt. Or stuck in a dryness and complacency of soul. We are too hurried to sense the one thing we most need ? the love of the heavenly Father that transforms all it touches.

How do we experience the tender, challenging, renewing love of God–a love that dares us to come away from the world long enough to know the soul-refreshing touch of Life?

What is the Father Like?

Phillip Keller, one of the most beloved devotional writers of our time, leads us from the parched ground of daily life into the spiritually green pastures of the Father. He calls us to a place where we can once again

• hear the gentle, calming, assuring guidance of our Shepherd rise above the confusing noise of earth
• experience the safety and protection of the Almighty
• enjoy His peace, in place of fear, anxiety, and inner turmoil
• know the gift of His intimate presence.

If you have longed for inner strength…fullness…purpose…come and meet with the Father, and listen to His heart!

The Vintage Wren: Week 1

Chautona Havig

The Vintage Wren is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes.

Cassie Wren. Legal assistant. Convenience queen. Thrifter extraordinaire. If there was a “green police” she’d be a fugitive from eco-friendly justice.

But when a friend’s teasing feels like a challenge, Cassie accepts it. The result? One year. Twelve months. Fifty-two weeks. Three hundred sixty-five days–of green.

It seemed simple enough. Cut back on paper plates, plastic forks, and straws. Easy peasy. But when her competitive side wars against her desire for convenience, Cassie finds it’s not so easy to be “eco-friendly” and “Cassie-friendly.”

Week 1 Shopping for Cassie’s annual New Year’s Eve party sparks an innocent comment that Cassie can’t forget. So, during their New Year’s Day goal planning session, Cassie’s friends tease her about her lack of eco-consciousness, and Cassie determines to change one new thing in favor of the planet every week. For a year. Even if it kills her.

She’s confident it will.

Cassie’s first wee–paper. She’s determined to cut out all extraneous paper usage–all of it. But when almost everything comes wrapped in paper, it isn’t as easy as she thought it would be. Her only consolation? Some water bottles come with plastic labels, and she doesn’t have to cut that out until next week. Ha!

The Vintage Wren. A serial novel released in fifty-two episodes (for obvious reasons).

Kristen Heitzmann

From the minute Grace Evangeline throws her sweet tea in Devin Bressard’s face, their battle of wits and cross-purposes overtakes their lives. Sassy “angelic” Grace Evangeline will stop at nothing to see her romance novel produced for Broadway. Devin Bressard knows all about the commercial success of Ms. Evangeline’s “novels”—as far from his literary, nerve-striking plays as anything could be.
Grace intends to pull his head out of the rarified air long enough to make her point, even if it involves stalking him and infiltrating his friends and colleagues. Devin knows she’s trouble, but who would guess the spokesperson for strength and virtue would be a calamity vortex? He mounts a fierce resistance, but when he’s forced to work with Grace, his profession and sanity aren’t the only things at risk. Collapsing walls on both sides bring a détente that could shatter their bond—or resound through more lives than their own.

“Capturing a sassy, chick-lit essence, Kristen Heitzmann weaves a subtle suspense plot within this fun romantic comedy. The characters’ insecurities, snobbish prejudices, and inadvisable tactics entwine readers within the laughter and pain Devin and Grace inflict upon each other—and themselves—before discovering their unusual, and oh-so-satisfying happy ever after.
