Dirty Christians: How to Serve God in a Messy World

Dirty Christians: How to Serve God in a Messy World

Daniel Brown

Jesus Got His Hands Dirty. What About You?
Jesus did not share the gospel with the poor, profane, and rebellious where they lived just so that we would share it only with the prim and proper, in churches. He did not suffer the agony of the cross so that we would live safely within the church walls, untouched by the hurting world around us. He was not raised from the dead to new life so that we would keep ourselves, His message, and His power out of reach of the people who need it.
Jesus got His hands dirty, interacting with a messy world to reach those He loves.
Today, our church services, music, look, attitudes, and actions are all are so clean and proper, it’s hard for anyone to be touched by them. In trying to be clean, we have forgotten how messy life can be. To be effective for Him, we must start serving as He did, where life is messy.
Dirty Christians is a call for the people of Christ to…
• Leave the safety of the church to venture out into the messiness of the real world of people with deep hurts, serious issues, and torn apart lives, and love them as He did
• Chase after the life of service and love—the standard to which He has called us
• Discover in the messiness of serving God why being Christlike cannot be an option, but must be a necessity
• Experience the power of God as never before as we do what Jesus did and love as He loved
Dirty Christians is not a “let’s feel good about ourselves” kind of book. If you’re up for the challenge to live Jesus out to this world, read it…and see what God can do through you when you dare to live out a messy faith.
A native of southeastern Michigan, Daniel Brown lives in South Alabama where he and his wife, Debbie, pastor Anchor Assembly of God in Bayou La Batre. The father of two, and grandfather of five (so far), Daniel encourages Christians to get a little dirty while serving. He is currently working on his next book, Crude Church.

The Pepper In The Gumbo: (Cane River Romance Book One)

Mary Jane Hathaway

Alice Augustine runs the oldest bookstore in the historic district of Natchitoches and believes technology is the root of most problems. If only more people would turn off the Tv and shut down the computer, the world wouldn’t be in the mess it’s in. She wishes she could get the teens she loves to step away from the screens and hold on to their Creole culture. The only person who seems to understand her passion for classic literature is the mysterious website owner, Browning Wordsworth Keats.

Paul Olivier comes back to his home town determined to show the people of Cane River that he’s not the poor, nerdy kid he once was. He’s made a fortune designing video games and opening a giant electronics store right in the snooty historic district will be the crowning glory of his career. Unfortunately, one bookish anti-tech fanatic has decided to do everything she can to keep that from happening. Even worse, she doesn’t know that in cyber space, they’re kindred spirits.

Alice and Paul clash from the start, but nothing is ever quite as it seems. When secrets are revealed, will there be a second chance- for both of them?
A romance that brings the humor of You’ve Got Mail and the deep friendships of 84, Charring Cross Road, this romance will touch the classic literature lover in everyone.

Rock Your To-Do List: Get to Your Biggest Goals Faster, With Less Stress, in Only 15 Minutes a Day

Rock Your To-Do List: Get to Your Biggest Goals Faster, With Less Stress, in Only 15 Minutes a Day

Lain Ehmann

***$.99 FOR A LIMITED TIME!***

• Have you ever rewritten your “to-do” list, hoping it would help you get more done?
• Do you look for the “perfect” planner, calendar, or organizer because you’re convinced if you just found the “right” one, you’d be more organized and productive?
• Do you wonder why your life is so overwhelming when everyone else seems to be getting so much done?

What if the problem wasn’t YOU, but the systems you’re trying to use?

A self-proclaimed “Type A” personality, author Lain Ehmann tried it all. From “Getting Things Done” to the Franklin-Covey system to minimalism, she tested program after program, looking for the one that would finally work for her. But no matter what she tried, she’d end up at the same place: With a to-do list a mile long, and no clue how to fit her non-standard life into the squares on the planner calendar.

Then one day, she asked herself an empowering question: What if the problem wasn’t HER, but the systems? What if the real issue was trying to force her life into the system, instead of trying to find a system that fit her life?

Suddenly, it all made sense. She threw out everything she’d learned about time management and started from scratch. Using the biggest lessons of productivity and efficiency from luminaries like Brian Tracy, Lain developed her own flexible, unique program from the ground-up. “Rock Your To-Do List’ is that program.

If you’ve constantly been frustrated by traditional productivity and time-management programs, RYTDL is for YOU. You’ll learn:

• How traditional time-management programs fail us
• How you can accomplish MORE by doing LESS
• Why to-do lists are your secret weapon to productivity
• How to create SMARTY goals
• and more!

If you’re ready for a flexible, powerful program that fits your life instead of forcing you to fit your multi-faceted, 3-D life into a 2-D planner, you’ll love the RYTDL program.

From the introduction:

“As a life and business coach, my goal is to help you get your deepest and most valued dreams out of your head and onto your to-do list. This is interactive, so I’m going to be giving you assignments along the way. Grab a pen and paper right now so you are ready to take notes. Even though I can’t see you, just like Santa, I know when you’ve been good or bad. So let’s just make it easy on ourselves, and when I ask a question, you just go right ahead and answer, just like I could hear you. Because I can. 😉

In this book, I’ll be presenting a bunch of different topics as they relate to your to-do list. We’ll be talking about big ideas like priorities and goals, and small ideas that may seem so simple that you wonder how in the heck they’re going to help. You might, at times, think I’m a little bit loony. Well, I am! But I’ve also helped dozens of people, just like you, gain control over their schedules and lives. I can help you, too.

Some of the ideas I present will go 180 degrees against everything you’ve learned about productivity. Some of what I say might make you a bit mad or irritated, or make you say, “Well, if she only knew about MY life… this will never work for me!” But before you toss this book in the recycling bin or give it to the parakeet to use for training purposes, I want to challenge you. Give the Rock Your To-Do List process two weeks. Read through this book, incorporate and adopt the principles and actions I share, and put them to use. In two weeks’ time if you have not significantly lowered your stress level and increased your productivity, you can go back to the old way of doing things.

While these ideas and principles will work in the office or workplace, or for someone who works for pay from home, the Rock Your To-Do List program is designed to help you accomplish those “other” tasks and projects – from redoing the basement to starting a new business or getting back in shape…”

Twelve Years a Slave

Twelve Years a Slave

Solomon Northup

The harrowing true story that inspired the critically acclaimed film

The son of a freed slave, Solomon Northup lived the first thirty years of his life as a free man in upstate New York. In the spring of 1841, he was offered a job: a short-term, lucrative engagement as a violinist in a traveling circus. It was a trap. In Washington, DC, Northup was drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery. He spent the next twelve years on plantations in Louisiana, enduring backbreaking labor, unimaginable violence, and inhumane treatment at the hands of cruel masters, until a kind stranger helped to win his release. His account of those years is a shocking, unforgettable portrait of America’s most insidious historical institution as told by a man who experienced it firsthand.

Published shortly after Harriet Beecher Stowe’s abolitionist classic Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Northup’s memoir became a bestseller in 1853. With its eloquent depiction of life before and after bondage, Twelve Years a Slave was a unique and effective entry into the national debate over slavery. Rediscovered in the 1960s and now the inspiration for a major motion picture, Northup’s poignant narrative gives readers an invaluable glimpse into a shameful chapter of American history.

Chautona Havig

Dani and Ella Weeks–two women who share one thing in common–the same life, the same family, and the same body.

When Dani wakes with no knowledge of who or where she is–no memories of her life at all–David and Dani Weeks discover that “til death do us part” takes on an entirely unexpected meaning. Practically speaking, Dani died. But she didn’t.

In a desperate attempt to separate the old life from the new, Dani insists on a new name–Ella.

Ella’s doctors can’t explain what happened. Her children can’t understand why she doesn’t know them, and her husband finds himself torn between admiration for the “new” version of his wife and missing the woman he’s known for over fifteen years.

Will Ella ever regain her memory? Why does their pastor suspect it’s one great hoax?
