Enough: Finding More by Living with Less

Enough: Finding More by Living with Less

Will Davis Jr.

Do you have enough?

Our culture pushes us to strive for more–more money, more stuff, more clout. But how much is enough? And how do we know when we have too much of a good thing?

In this provocative book, Will Davis Jr. challenges us to discover the peace that comes through contentment with what we have and compassion for those in need. Through surprising statistics, scriptural insight, and powerful real-life stories, Davis shows us the rewards of living with less in order to be more and do more with our lives.

If you want to pursue a life that truly satisfies, read on.

“Enough challenges the status quo pursuit of the American dream, which has produced less-than-stellar results. If your goal is actually feeling wealthy, secure, and as though you finally have enough, then Will’s book is a must-read!”–John Burke, author of No Perfect People Allowed

“If you’ve ever been guilty of searching for enough in all the wrong places (ahem, like me!), I dare you to read this book. Be warned that it will make you squirm in places, but in a good way–a very good way.”–Vicki Courtney, author of 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter

“I am so thankful for this book. I have been thinking about downsizing my lifestyle and freeing myself from the maintenance of too much accumulated stuff! After reading Will’s book, I am convicted to actually do it.”–Nancy Turner, host of This Is the Day for Moody Radio

“As usual, Will Davis Jr. has challenged me at a deep level. I am truly inspired to rethink my perspective on working, money, and the pursuit of the American dream. I highly recommend Enough for every American!”–Debbie Chavez, talk show host at www.faithplace.org; women’s conference speaker

Will Davis Jr. (DMin, Southwestern Seminary) is the founding and senior pastor of Austin Christian Fellowship, a nondenominational church in Texas. He is the author of Pray Big, 10 Things Jesus Never Said, and several other books. An avid hiker, mountain climber, and water-skier, Davis and his wife, Susie, have three children and live in Austin, Texas.

Pushing the Ugly Out: A Story of Victory

Pushing the Ugly Out: A Story of Victory

Naysay Vaughn

“Pushing the Ugly Out” is a lighthearted memoir of my life. It takes my reader on a journey through my experience of Massage Therapy School. Upon my enrolling into the program I initially just wanted to hide from my pain. I had tar covered memories stalking me and snatching my breath middream. With hurt stuck to my skin and the aftertaste of betrayal still fresh, I decided I would hide out in the school. However, the very place I went to hide would bring out memories of an lifelong, and alone journey.

I never expected to make it through the program. The odds were certainly stacked against me. I was single, three children, one of which was a newborn, I had no car, and my water was being disconnected. I had one pair of shoes I wore everyday. They were old, smelly, and really embarrassing. Yes, I was alone, or was I.

It wasn’t until the end of the program. I started to FEEL God as I never had before. Sure, I had spoken with him. I had witnessed an act of kindness from a stranger, and have occasionally heard his voice, but never had I felt God the way I did at the end of my story.

Much like the poem footprints, I was convinced he had abandoned me just like my father, and daughter’s fathers’. It was at the moment when I actually completed something that I looked back and realized that He carried me too. He loved me that much.

The Peaceful Wife

The Peaceful Wife

April Cassidy

“This book walks each of us through the reality checks we need in order to have the marriage we want!”
—Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher and best-selling author of For Women Only

In today’s workplace, women are often rewarded for having type A personalities: driven, demanding, ambitious, and strong. Yet when it comes to their marriages, those same traits can backfire. After all, no one goes into marriage hoping for a promotion. What is a wife to do?

April Cassidy knows this struggle firsthand. She thought she was a great Christian wife and begged God to make her passive husband into a more loving, involved, godly leader. Instead, God opened her eyes to changes that she needed to make, such as laying down her desire for control and offering genuine, unconditional respect—-not just love—-to her husband.

Cassidy’s conclusions may be as startling to readers as they were to her, but The Peaceful Wife shares how she and many others have learned to reorient their lives to biblical commands—resulting in healthier, happier marriages. In the end, you’ll find The Peaceful Wife a powerful path to God’s design for women to live in full submission to Christ as Lord.

What Once Was Lost: A Novel

What Once Was Lost: A Novel

Kim Vogel Sawyer

A woman meant to serve, a child in the dark, a man standing apart—can these three souls embrace a God with new plans for them?

On a small Kansas farm, Christina Willems lovingly shepherds a group of poor and displaced individuals who count on her leadership and have come to see the Brambleville Asylum for the Poor as their home. But when a fire breaks out in the kitchen leaving the house uninhabitable, she must scramble to find shelter for all in her care, scattering her dear “family.”

With no other options, Christina is forced to approach Levi Jonnson, a reclusive mill owner, to take in a young blind boy named Tommy Kilgore. Levi agrees with reluctance but finds himself surprised by the bond that quickly grows between him and Tommy. As obstacles to repairing the farm pile up against Christina, she begins to question her leadership ability and wonders if she can fulfill the mission to which she’s dedicated her life. And when an old adversary challenges Christina, will she find an unlikely ally—or more—in the aloof Levi? Can Levi reconcile with the rejection that led to his hermit-like existence and open his heart and life to something more, especially a relationship with a loving God?

The Templars

The Templars

Michael Haag

Arguably one of the most provocative, puzzling, and misunderstood organizations of medieval times, the legendary Knights Templar have always been shrouded in a veil of mystery, while inspiring popular culture from Indiana Jones to Dan Brown. In The Templars, author Michael Haag offers a definitive history of these loyal Christian soldiers of the Crusades—sworn to defend the Holy Land and Jerusalem, but ultimately damned and destroyed by the Pope and his church. A bestseller in the United Kingdom—the first history of the enigmatic warriors to include findings from the Chinon Parchment, the long-lost Vatican document absolving the Knights of heresy—The Templars by Michael Haag is fascinating reading.

Mist of Midnight: A Novel (The Daughters of Hampshire)

Mist of Midnight: A Novel (The Daughters of Hampshire)

Sandra Byrd

In the first of a brand-new series set in Victorian England, a young woman returns home from India after the death of her family to discover her identity and inheritance are challenged by the man who holds her future in his hands.

Rebecca Ravenshaw, daughter of missionaries, spent most of her life in India. Following the death of her family in the Indian Mutiny, Rebecca returns to claim her family estate in Hampshire, England. Upon her return, people are surprised to see her…and highly suspicious. Less than a year earlier, an imposter had arrived with an Indian servant and assumed not only Rebecca’s name, but her home and incomes.

That pretender died within months of her arrival; the servant fled to London as the young woman was hastily buried at midnight. The locals believe that perhaps she, Rebecca, is the real imposter. Her home and her father’s investments reverted to a distant relative, the darkly charming Captain Luke Whitfield, who quickly took over. Against her best intentions, Rebecca begins to fall in love with Luke, but she is forced to question his motives—does he love her or does he just want Headbourne House? If Luke is simply after the property, as everyone suspects, will she suffer a similar fate as the first “Rebecca”?

A captivating Gothic love story set against a backdrop of intrigue and danger, Mist of Midnight will leave you breathless.
