Bulletproof Health and Fitness: Your Secret Key to High Achievement (Six Simple Steps to Success Book 3)

Michal Stawicki

A Few Simple Habits Will Get You Fit and Healthy

(Even If You Have No Time for Exercise and Don’t Like Diets)
What if you could shed excessive pounds simply by living your life? What if you could forget about ever needing sick leave? Wouldn’t you like to be the Energizer Bunny in your own life, every day?

Bulletproof Health and Fitness is a book for average people who can’t suddenly switch to an extreme diet – or don’t want to – and can’t sweat in the gym for 20 hours per week.
Michal Stawicki can do 150+ pushups and 40+ pullups; he hasn’t been off work sick since July 2013. And, like any ordinary man, he also has a life to live: a day job, wife and kids, church obligations, a daily 3-4 hour commute and random disasters (a broken furnace, flat tire, delayed trains, children’s illnesses…)
In Bulletproof Health and Fitness, he shares his down-to-earth approach for losing weight, getting and staying fit, and keeping his health optimal. And he shares how you too can unlock a force of incredible energy; the energy you need so badly to face life’s everyday challenges.

In this book you will learn:

Why getting your body into prime condition is your first step to success

The single rule which determines whether any workout or diet will be a success

The biggest mistake people make when trying to get back in shape

Why targeted habitual actions are the perfect way average people can regain and keep their health

The only four elements you must look after to maintain your stamina

Why you can eat whatever you want and stay fit

The three things necessary for getting good sleep

How even fasting for 120 hours won’t kill you.

How can you exercise less than 15 minutes a day and be able to do 100 consecutive pushups

Why cardio is usually a waste of time (and how it can become time well invested)

Buy this book NOW and regardless of life’s challenges, you’ll soon enjoy new-found health and fitness.

Billy Romp

The warm, wonderful, real-life tale of the family that brings the Christmas spirit to life on a street corner in Manhattan.

More or Less: Choosing a Lifestyle of Excessive Generosity

Jeff Shinabarger

In More or Less, Jeff Shinabarger calls readers to create their own social experiments to answer the question, “What is enough?”

It all started with one idea: What would happen if we created a culture in which we gave away whatever was more than enough for us? How would our habits change if we shed the excess of money, clutter, and food in our lives? In More or Less, readers will learn how to draw a line of “enough” in their consumer choices, how to see generosity as a chance to experience freedom in a greedy world, and how to make small changes now that will help others forever. As Shinabarger reminds them, defining “enough” is more than a responsibility—it is an opportunity to give hope. With a foreword by Bob Goff.

Daily in His Presence: A Classic Devotional from One of the Most Powerful Voices of the Nineteenth Century

Andrew Murray

In his time, Andrew Murray was alarmed by how few believers lived wholeheartedly for God and truly displayed to the world the abundant life promised by Jesus Christ. More than a century later, Christians are still living powerless, impoverished spiritual lives, and a media-savvy world dismisses the church as irrelevant. One of the most powerful voices of the nineteenth century, Murray speaks to today’s church from across the years, exhorting us to begin each day by seeking the living God, giving Him time every morning to reveal Himself anew. For this stunning new devotional, contemporary bestselling author Bruce Wilkinson presents 365 gems from the treasury of writings by Andrew Murray. Wilkinson introduces each month’s readings with an overview of the thematic approach for the coming devotions. Each month features the very best of Murray’s work centering on a different aspect of cultivating a deeper and richer spiritual life.

[Head:] Revive Your Spirit

Does the abundant Christian life you’re “supposed” to have feel more like a chore than reality? Impoverished and stale, is your spirit crying out for recharging?

One of the most powerful voices of the last two hundred years, Andrew Murray wrote extensively about this age-old struggle. This treasury of 365 gems of biblical wisdom is presented here in contemporary English by bestselling author Bruce Wilkinson.

Each day will lead you deeper into God’s presence. Your spirit is yearning for it. Don’t delay. Let these timeless secrets of a more meaningful spiritual life invigorate your soul.

Losers Like Us: Redefining Discipleship after Epic Failure

Losers Like Us: Redefining Discipleship after Epic Failure

Daniel Hochhalter

In 2008, after seven years of preparation, Daniel Hochhalter permanently failed his PhD, leaving him with no hope of gaining the qualifications needed for his desired career. Then he lost his job. Devastated and in crisis, with no Plan B and no clue how to redeem his future, he looked to the twelve disciples and discovered that–despite their gaping faults and sins–God still loved them and used them to change the world.

With fresh warmth and wisdom, ample hope and humor, Losers Like Us skillfully intertwines Dan’s own story with theirs to show how our worst mistakes and greatest failures bring us to a place of teachableness, egolessness, brokenness, and empathy–the very qualifications required to receive God’s love and grace, and to manifest his kingdom on earth.

Daniel Hochhalter lives with his wife and two wiener dogs in Portland, Oregon, where his only true credential is that the Lord loves him. Dan has a B.S. (Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA) and an M.Div. (George Fox Evangelical Seminary, Newberg, OR). He does not have a PhD.

The Unexpected Bride (The Brides Book 1)

Lena Goldfinch

What’s a man to do when his father orders him a bride?

Rebecca Sullivan has been “Becky” all her life, a real hoyden. Her childhood sweetheart taught her to ride bareback and shoot a rifle, but then he chose a “perfect lady” for a wife–a real Southern belle, who’s now expecting a baby. Heartbroken, Becky signs up to be a mail-order bride to a Seattle man, sight unseen. She resolves to squelch her hoydenish ways and become a “perfect lady” for her future husband.

If logging-operation owner Isaac Jessup had wanted a bride, he’d have chosen a sturdy frontier woman, not some fragile lady from back East. Ready to explain the mistake, honorable Isaac takes one look into Rebecca’s vulnerable eyes…and knows he’ll marry her, even though this delicate waif is obviously unsuited for wild Seattle.

Could an unexpected marriage be a match made in heaven?

This is Book One in the The Brides Series. The books can be read in any order.
Sweet Historical Western Romance / A Mail-Order Bride Novel

Excerpt

The lean-to was chilly and not for the first time, Isaac considered boarding it up proper and calling it a barn. He sat on the stool and began milking the goat, all the while mentally preparing for the worship service they planned to go to later that morning. The Scriptures he’d read first thing that morning were fresh in his mind, and his prayers kept returning to the problem of Rebecca. One inner voice urged him to send her back home, but another voice spoke of commitment. He’d said vows before God to love and keep her till death do them part. Those weren’t words he was willing to dismiss lightly.

“What’s her name?” Her voice was suddenly in his ear, quite close.

Isaac jumped. The goat bleated at him.

“Sorry, girl.” He patted her side and resumed milking her with slow, careful hands. He glanced over his shoulder toward the subject of his thoughts.

Rebecca stood watching him, leaning over the rail and peering in at them with curious eyes. He was surprised to see her out this early. She usually left him to his morning chores, and most times he’d get back inside the cabin and find her already up preparing breakfast.

“What’s her name?” she repeated.

“Name? The goat?” He looked at the goat dumbly. It was a goat. He’d never gotten much further than that. She gave them a daily supply of milk, but other than that she was generally a nuisance. She liked to butt down the stall door. And whenever she got loose, she’d eat what few vegetables he was able to grow in the summer. She also liked to nip at his shirts and underthings when he hung them out on the line–if he was lucky. Most times she’d tug the whole line down and drag it through the mud.

“Yes, the goat,” Rebecca said, a pleasant-sounding smile in her voice. “Don’t tell me she hasn’t got a name?”

There was something nice about hearing a woman’s voice in the morning. It reminded him a little of when he was young, and his mother had chatted with him in soft tones while they ate breakfast. As if speaking too loud would jar them too quickly out of whatever dreams they’d had the night before.

Rebecca’s soft voice put him much in mind of those times.

“All right. I won’t.” Isaac focused on his milking.

“She doesn’t have a name?” Rebecca pressed. “How can you have an animal that doesn’t have a name?”

“Never gave it much thought. She’s good for milk, but other than that she’s nothing but trouble, always munching on the laundry.”

“Well, then I think your choice is clear. Either you call her Milky or you call her Trouble.” Her teasing tone brought a reluctant smile to his lips.

“Well, then, if I have to choose, then I guess she’s Trouble.”

The real Trouble was standing behind him, her elbow propped against the top of the rail, her chin cupped in one dainty hand.

She’s even selected marriage candidates and is trying to determine who will be the perfect husband. There isn’t room for distractions or messes. It’s her theory that God doesn’t create chaos and neither should His people. Then Trent Moore crashes into her world. He’s goofy and spontaneous, and he challenges all of Jayna’s carefully laid plans. She finds him irritating and irresistible. Yet he isn’t even close to what she wanted in a man, which leaves her with a choice to make: will she continue to play it safe and follow her plan? Or will she take a chance with Trent who might not be everything he appears to be?

“Sugar, Spice, and Other Sassy Things”: Mila has a habit of sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong, and that’s exactly how she meets Austin Lang. He’s an injured ex-pro basketball player who growls and snarls with every breath. For some reason he’s decided to push everyone out of his life – and that includes the nosy stranger who shows up on his doorstep. Despite his anger and insistence to leave him alone, Mila has made it her personal mission to win him over. She offers cinnamon rolls, friendship, and love, but she’s not sure that’s enough to turn this beast into a thing of beauty.
