Free to Be Wise: A Guide to Biblical Decision Making

Free to Be Wise: A Guide to Biblical Decision Making

Kirk Youngblood

In Ephesians 5:15-17 the apostle Paul wrote, “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

This inspired admonition is unequivocal as to how we as Christians are to walk (live) in this world. We are to walk in wisdom and we are to take advantage of every opportunity to accomplish God’s will. We are to “understand what the will of the Lord is.”

But how do we go about that? Is the will of the Lord something that God will reveal to us through some sign or circumstance? Is it something that He will speak to us audibly or make known to us through some sort of inner impression?

Far too many have been paralyzed with indecision because they are looking for some kind of inside track of new revelation from God, but veteran pastor Kirk Youngblood (D.Min.) explains how you can be Free to Be Wise according to the teaching of Scripture.

This book will help you avoid the common pitfalls of a mystical approach to decision making and God’s will. It will liberate you to follow the wisdom God has already revealed to us in His Word.

His Texas Princess: Clean and Wholesome Inspirational Christian Romance (Port Provident: Hurricane Hope Book 3)

His Texas Princess: Clean and Wholesome Inspirational Christian Romance (Port Provident: Hurricane Hope Book 3)

Kristen Ethridge

If you love clean and wholesome heartwarming reads that have a happily-ever-after mixed with inspirational real-life faith, you will love this light, romantic series. Always FREE on Kindle Unlimited!

“I don’t read nearly enough inspirational fiction and this is silly because I always feel so uplifted and more hopeful when I do. So glad that I found author Kristen Ethridge’s ‘Port Provident’ series.”-FIVE STAR Amazon Reader Review (Top 500 Reviewer)

HE CAME TO REPAIR DAMAGED HOUSES. SHE CAME TO REPAIR HER DAMAGED HEART…

Her Royal Highness Princess Anneliese de Cotriaro is trying to find her place in the world–and in the kingdom of San Petro, a small paradise off the coast of Central America. She believes there is more to her life than simply being “the spare” to the crown’s heir and having her every move followed by paparazzi after a broken engagement. Because Port Provident, Texas, is a sister city to San Petro’s capital city of Rosada, when Princess Anneliese sees the images of destruction from Hurricane Hope in the news, she knows this is the opportunity she’s been praying for to show she’s a woman of substance.

Matt McGregor is used to disasters. Working with Helping Hands Homes, he’s returned to his hometown after the hurricane with an ambitious goal to renovate 100 damaged homes by Christmas. When the national office tells him they’ve been able to score a PR opportunity with the visiting princess of San Petro to work on one of the houses and help raise the funds they’ll need to achieve their goals, Matt sees imminent disaster. Building a house is hard work and he needs committed volunteers–not a prissy princess who is sure to be afraid to get her hands dirty.

Can a princess in search of a mission make a difference in the world of a blue-collar man who can’t afford distractions to his work?

HURRICANE HOPE: ONE STORM CHANGES PORT PROVIDENT FOREVER…AND FOR GOOD.

Port Provident is a Texas beachside community you’ll want to call home again and again. With compelling, well-developed characters that make you care about them and their journeys of the heart and faith, the Port Provident series is a clean and sweet contemporary romance treat. Although the Port Provident: Hurricane Hope books can be read in order as an anthology,each book stands alone–you can read any book at any time. Should you want to read them in order, though, start with Shelter from the Storm, then The Doctor’s Unexpected Family, then His Texas Princess, and complete the series with Holiday of Hope. You can also find more tales of true love and a legacy of grace in Saving Gracie and Second Chance Sweethearts, both from Love Inspired books.

The next series of Port Provident books–Port Provident: Holiday Hearts–begins with a release in Spring 2016. Become an honorary resident of Port Provident by clicking the yellow “follow” button on Kristen’s Amazon author page in order to be notified of new releases and more!

BabyCakes: Vegan, (Mostly) Gluten-Free, and (Mostly) Sugar-Free Recipes from New York's Most Talked-About Bakery

BabyCakes: Vegan, (Mostly) Gluten-Free, and (Mostly) Sugar-Free Recipes from New York’s Most Talked-About Bakery

Erin McKenna

Forget everything you’ve heard about health-conscious baking.

Simply, BabyCakes is your key to an enlightened, indulgent, sweets-filled future. This is important news not only for parents whose children have allergies, for vegans, and for others who struggle with food sensitivities, but also for all you sugar-loving traditionalists. The recipes in these pages prove that there is a healthy alternative to recklessly made desserts, one that doesn’t sacrifice taste or texture.

Having experimented endlessly with alternative, health-conscious sweeteners, flours, and thickeners, Erin McKenna, the proprietress of beloved bakery BabyCakes NYC, developed these recipes–most are gluten-free, all are without refined sugar–in hopes of combating her own wheat, dairy, and sugar sensitivities. In BabyCakes, she shares detailed information about the ingredients she uses (coconut flour, xanthan gum, and agave nectar, for example) and how to substitute them properly for common ones–all the while guiding you safely through techniques she’s spent years perfecting.

When BabyCakes NYC opened on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in 2005, it helped propel the gluten-free and vegan baking movement into a new stratosphere. Suddenly there was a destination for those with wheat allergies and other dietary restrictions–and, soon enough, celebrities and dessert lovers of every kind–to indulge freely in delectable muffins and teacakes, brownies and cookies, pies and cobblers.

Enclosed within these pages are all the “secrets” you’ll need to bring the greatness of BabyCakes NYC into your own home as well as raves and recommendations from devotees such as Natalie Portman, Jason Schwartzman, Mary-Louise Parker, Zooey Deschanel, and Pamela Anderson.

For confectionists of all kinds, delicious alternatives lie within: Red Velvet Cupcakes, Chocolate Shortbread Scones with Caramelized Bananas, Strawberry Shortcake, and BabyCakes NYC’s celebrated frosting (so delicious it has fans tipping back frosting shots!), to name just a few. Finally, Erin’s blissful desserts are yours for the baking!

Every Other Monday: Twenty Years of Life, Lunch, Faith, and Friendship

Every Other Monday: Twenty Years of Life, Lunch, Faith, and Friendship

John Kasich

This bestselling book by GOP presidential candidate John Kasich offers an honest, insightful, and revealing portrait of the man called by the New York Times, “the only plausible choice for Republicans tired of the extremism and inexperience on display in this race.”

Where do you go when the water rises?

For more than twenty-five years, starting long before he was a Republican presidential candidate facing down Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, before he was twice elected Governor of Ohio, John Kasich has sought the answer to this question and to many of life’s most fundamental challenges in an unlikely place: his twice-a-month lunches with an irreverent, thoughtful, and spirited circle of guys who are members of a Bible study group. Every other Monday over lunch at an Italian restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, Kasich and half a dozen friends use the stories of the Good Book as a launching pad to discuss big ideas like integrity, justice, ambition, as well as the small trials and triumphs of daily life. This group, in reaching for life’s biggest mysteries while standing firmly rooted in the everyday, became a cornerstone of Kasich’s life, one to which he consistently turns when the waters threaten to rise.

Full of funny and fascinating anecdotes and poignant memories drawn from Kasich’s personal and professional life, Every Other Monday is an honest look at how to build faith, find strength, and stay resilient—even during the most challenging of circumstances.

What Good is Jesus?

What Good is Jesus?

Marv Nelson

When children are sold into slavery—what good is Jesus? When wretched disease takes a loved one’s life—what good is Jesus? When marriages crumble and jobs disappoint—what good is Jesus? Faced with declining opportunities, a war-torn globe, and seemingly-insurmountable crises, more and more disillusioned young people are sincerely asking—what good is Jesus? How do we even begin to answer? Do we begin with Scripture, our own experience of faith, or something else? In What Good is Jesus, Pastor Marv Nelson doesn’t avoid tough questions and criticism, he tackles issues with love and wisdom. Examining sexuality, politics, racial tensions, suffering, and more, Nelson addresses these problems through a relational rather than religious approach.

Raising Cain: How the Bible Shapes the Things You Say

Raising Cain: How the Bible Shapes the Things You Say

Wayne Harvey

“Beside oneself,” “as old as the hills,” “the kiss of death,” “see eye to eye,” and “raising Cain” are all expressions most English speakers understand and use in conversation. If you asked someone what these phrases have in common, few would be able to say that they all come from the Bible.

Even in a secular, post-Christian age the imprint of the Bible, and especially the King James Version, is pervasive and profound. A distinguished professor of literature has said, “the King James Version of the Bible is the most influential English book ever printed.” Its themes have influenced the arts, constitutions, laws, and everyday language.

In Raising Cain. Dr. Wayne Harvey provides fascinating documen- tation of the echoes of the King James Bible on the tongues of and in the writings of 21st century English speakers.

His entry on “Raising Cain” shows how this treasury of biblical expressions works:

Raise Cain (See also “Cain and Abel” and “Cain, Mark of”)

To create a disturbance. One sense of raise in old English is to conjure up. To raise Cain is to bring up or express the spirit of Cain.

But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him (Genesis 4:5-7).
