Catch A Falling Star (Lone Star Hearts Book 1)

Lynette Sowell

Justine Campbell would gladly rewind her life a year or so back before it crumbled around her like so much gilded plaster. Billy Tucker could use a rewind button, too. He’d go back to the day before his humvee exploded in Iraq, injuring himself and killing two of his buddies. Billy’s bitterness and Justine’s humiliation make for a prickly pair when they first meet, but can either of them let go of the past long enough to let God make their paths straight again?

Welcome to Starlight, Texas, a small town with plenty of Texas twang and a kaleidoscope of cultures from around the world, thanks to nearby Fort Hood.

Messages (The David Chance Series Book 1)

John Michael Hileman

The David Chance Series: Messages, Voices, Lies

David Chance can see messages in the sea of words around him, messages that warn him of future events.

Words are everywhere– on labels, magazines, sign posts, t-shirts– everywhere. And as much as David Chance would like to hide from them, he can’t. Words keep leaping off objects around him, forming messages in his mind. But how is this possible? Has his brain suddenly taken an evolutionary leap forward, or are the mysterious messages proof of divine intervention?

Driven to answer a question he’d long ago abandoned, and stalked by the killer he’s trying to stop, David risks everything to follow the messages to a dirty bomb set to go off in the heart of Boston. But can he trust the author of the messages to protect him from a terrorist who seems to know his every move.

Breathing Grace: What You Need More Than Your Next Breath

Breathing Grace: What You Need More Than Your Next Breath

Harry Kraus

Each week thousands of Christians will sing “Amazing Grace” at church, paying lip service to one of the most phenomenal aspects of Christianity, yet walking away untouched by its magnitude. They pay mental assent to the concept, but their hearts are untouched.

In the author’s words, “God’s grace is amazing, abundant, free, and available. So why is spiritual famine an epidemic both inside and outside the church? Because although we’ve come to Christ by recognizing grace, few of us have carried it along as essential equipment on the Christian path. . . . God never promised a pain-free life, but he did promise that his grace is all we need in our search for peace and fulfillment.”

Breathing Grace is a unique look at a topic that stands at the very core of the Christian faith. Dr. Harry Kraus, best-selling author and practicing surgeon, reveals the gospel of grace through a series of medical metaphors, predominantly the physiology of our need for and utilization of oxygen. The clinical flavor of the book brings to life a subject that many Christians have failed to grasp and incorporate into their daily lives, illustrating our need, God’s provision, and the moment-by-moment inflow and exhalation of grace to a starving world.

Breathing Grace includes study questions for group and individual use.

Between Heaven and Mirth: Why Joy, Humor, and Laughter Are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life

James Martin

“Between Heaven and Mirth will make any reader smile. . . . Father Martin reminds us that happiness is the good God’s own goal for us.” —Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York

From The Colbert Report’s “official chaplain” James Martin, SJ, author of the New York Times bestselling The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, comes a revolutionary look at how joy, humor, and laughter can change our lives and save our spirits. A Jesuit priest with a busy media ministry, Martin understands the intersections between spirituality and daily life. In Between Heaven and Mirth, he uses scriptural passages, the lives of the saints, the spiritual teachings of other traditions, and his own personal reflections to show us why joy is the inevitable result of faith, because a healthy spirituality and a healthy sense of humor go hand-in-hand with God’s great plan for humankind.

The Waiting Place: Learning to Appreciate Life's Little Delays

The Waiting Place: Learning to Appreciate Life’s Little Delays

Eileen Button

Some of the most priceless gifts can be discovered while waiting for something else.

We all spend precious time just waiting. We wait in traffic, grocery store lines, and carpool circles. We wait to grow up, for true love, and for our children to be born. We even wait to die. But while we work hard at this business of living, life can sometimes feel like one long, boring meeting. Even today, with instant gratification at our techno-laced fingertips, we can’t escape the waiting place. Somehow, in between our texting and tweeting and living and dying, we end up there again and again.

In the voice of an old friend or a wise-cracking sister, Eileen Button takes us back to the days of curling irons and camping trips, first loves and final goodbyes, big dreams and bigger reality checks. With heart-breaking candor she calls us to celebrate the tension between what we hope for tomorrow and what we live with today.

Chock-full of humor and poignant insights, these stories will make you laugh and cry. They’ll challenge you to enjoy—or at least endure—the now. As Eileen has learned, “To wait is human. To find life in the waiting place, divine.”

Come discover miracles in the mundane. Come celebrate life in The Waiting Place.

When all seems lost, out of the ashes redemption rises

Determination and faith have kept Samuel and Julia Wortham and their family safe through many trials. Together with their neighbors, the Hammonds, they have much to be thankful for-health, home, and happiness. But in the fall of 1938, life on their Illinois farms takes an unexpected turn.

When a raging fire breaks out and threatens to destroy the Hammond farm, the two families find themselves clinging to their faith in God. But as they face the daunting task of rebuilding what was lost, it seems that things will never be the same.

A compelling tale of courage and community, Rorey’s Secret continues the captivating saga of the Wortham family, who with trust and determination discover the restoring and healing power of forgiveness.

Prior to her untimely death in 2011, Leisha Kelly was the author of several bestselling historical fiction books, including Julia’s Hope, Emma’s Gift, and Katie’s Dream. She served many years on her local library board and was active in the ministries of her church.
