Faith Parsons

A WOMAN WHOSE FAMILY REJECTED HER

Felicity Adamson was raised in an orphanage because her aunt refused to take her in after her mother died of cholera. Making ends meet by caring for spoiled children whose parents refuse to discipline them leaves Felicity frazzled and exhausted. She’d give anything to quit her job as a governess.

She dreams of a quiet, peaceful place where she can start a family of her own.

A MAN WHO CAN’T AFFORD TO MOURN

Texas horse wrangler Harrison Baines knows what it’s like to long for a family. As a child, his father abandoned his family, leaving Harrison’s mother to raise two children on her own. Turned bitter by this betrayal, Harrison’s mother takes her anger out on Harrison.

Driven by his mother’s criticism to become the best horse wrangler in Texas, Harrison wants to give his children the loving home he never had.

A TRAGEDY THAT CAN’T BE UNDONE

When a tornado kills most of Harrison’s kin, he finds himself the only guardian of his brother’s young children, Esther and Daniel. The children are devastated by the loss of their parents and grandmother—and Harrison is at his wit’s end.

Thank goodness that his bride-to-be is an experienced governess!

Felicity arrives in East Texas, only to discover that she’s hours away from becoming a stepmother to two grieving children and a husband struggling to cope with staggering loss.

Can Felicity find a way to heal her new family’s wounded souls and teach Harrison to love again?

Winning the Wrangler’s Heart is a clean, inspirational mail order bride romance. While this book is part of a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone book.

In Faith Parson’s heartwarming romance stories, courageous men and their mail-order brides join together to make a new life on the Western frontier.

You Aren't Worthless: Unlock the Truth to Godly Confidence

You Aren’t Worthless: Unlock the Truth to Godly Confidence

Kristin N. Spencer

“God does not make any mistakes, and in His creative plan for us as His children, He is purposeful and specific.”
As a young woman I was often told that I had low self-esteem. I did not understand what true confidence was, and this negatively affected every aspect of my life. Over the last ten years, God has taken me on a journey to discover the truth about godly confidence. Although it was painful and sometimes I resisted, I would not trade those lessons for anything.
Are you tired of the unrealistic expectations that the world places on your appearance and personality? Have you experienced dark times in your past, hurtful friendships, or the despair of loneliness? This book is for you. As a plus-sized woman of God, I understand what it is like to have insecurities. Join me in a conversation where we will talk about all of the things no one feels comfortable mentioning in relation to confidence and self-esteem. At the end of our discussion, you will be faced with a choice; either you can choose to believe what God has written in the Bible about His love for you, or you can choose the wide path full of miserable and deceived company. Which path will you follow? I hope that like me, you will finally be set free from the lies that Satan uses to make us feel worthless and unconfident.

Lisa T. Bergren

Wealth cannot buy peace … or direction.

For Cora Kensington, the Grand Tour was to be the trip of a lifetime. She discovered the family she never knew she had, and may have even found the love she longs for in Will. And yet her life has just become infinitely more challenging …

Hounded by journalists chasing the beguiling story of the newest American heiress, Cora fights to remain true to her past, reconcile her present, and still embrace her future. But as Will struggles with her newfound wealth, she begins to wonder if their love is strong enough to withstand all that threatens to pull them apart.

Complicating matters is the stubborn pursuit of Pierre de Richelieu and the increased demands on her time and attention. Cora must stand up for what she believes—regardless of how that might challenge current family and cultural norms—in order to remain true to who she really is.

And as she glimpses the end of the tour, Cora knows it’s time to decide Who and what defines her … and who and what does not.

Alive: A Cold-Case Approach to the Resurrection

Alive: A Cold-Case Approach to the Resurrection

J. Warner Wallace

“If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins” (1 Cor. 15:17).

The resurrection. As far as doctrines go, it’s a game changer. Many accept the resurrection without giving it much thought. But isn’t something so important worthy of our wrestling with it? What if we approached the issue of the resurrection in an unbiased manner and assessed it as a cold case detective would evaluate a crime scene? Author J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case detective. He also used to be an atheist. Follow along in this brief presentation of his approach in applying his detective’s expertise to the accounts of the resurrection. Wallace believes the case is nothing but compelling: Jesus is alive!

J. Warner Wallace is a cold case homicide detective, a missions leader, and a church planter. As a result of his work on cold cases, Wallace has been featured on numerous television programs including Dateline, FOX News, and Court TV. Wallace’s visual presentations in the courtroom have revolutionized how capital offense trials are presented in Los Angeles County and across the country. A vocal atheist for many years, Wallace is now an apologist for Christianity and the founder of the ColdCaseChristianity.com Blog, Podcast, and Website. He has a master’s degree in theological studies. He and his wife have four children and live in southern California.

Think It Not Strange

Think It Not Strange

John Piper

For 350 years, the church on American soil has enjoyed relatively little affliction for her fidelity to the Scriptures. This nation, though, is an anomaly in church history. And those days seem to be passing, more quickly than many of us expected.

But panic would not be a Christian response. For two thousand years, this has been what it has meant to identify with Christ in the world—the normal experience of those who follow a man who was crucified. Suffering for the gospel was not just tolerated in the early church; it was expected.

For now, we may be prone to think it strange. But soon enough, the expectations of American Christians will adjust to what is normal in other times and places. We will realize that when we proclaim a gospel like ours, and make the sort of claims we do, the world won’t receive it well. For Christians, it really is strange *not* to be persecuted.

In these short chapters, a diverse team of contributors, representing six continents, joins together to help American Christians get ready for the insults, trials, opposition, and even persecution that may lie ahead.

David Sitton

Reckless is right when the cause is Christ.

God catapulted 20-year-old David Sitton from the beaches of south Texas to the stone-aged tribes in Papua New Guinea.

Reckless Abandon is a bare-knuckled dare to count the cost and seize the privilege of working with Christ in His worldwide mission.

It's A God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People

It’s A God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People

Don Jacobson

Some things in life have no earthly explanation.

Miracles are not reserved for the characters in the Old and New Testaments; they happen to everyday people.

Series creators Don Jacobson and K-LOVE Radio have joined together to produce one of the most remarkable collections of modern-day miracles ever compiled. From angel appearances in hospital rooms to a mother saved from a would-be assailant in Hyde Park, from a young autistic girl becoming a beautiful ballerina overnight to a young backpacker who walked away from a terrorist attack, It’s a God Thing presents some of the most amazing stories of God’s hand on our lives.

Be motivated as never before to look for and witness the incredible ways that God is interacting in your life and the lives of those around you.

“With their new book, It’s a God Thing, I believe K-LOVE and my friend Don Jacobson will call friends of Jesus everywhere to look for His capers around the world! Do you know why God involves Himself in our lives? Because God is love and love does!” —Bob Goff, author of the New York Times bestseller Love Does

“Every day we all are faced with stress, situations we can’t control and often the fear that we really are all alone. . . . These stories give us courage in times of peril and strengthen us when we feel helpless.”—TobyMac, top Christian artist and Grammy Award winner

“In It’s a God Thing true servants of God share how their lives were transformed when their understanding became the Father’s. What a blessing to be a child of the King!” —Missy Robertson, star of Duck Dynasty

“There is so much going on around us that we never see. Life is all about perspective, and when that lines up with the hand of God, it is remarkable to witness. This book and collection of stories from my friends at K-LOVE will inspire and encourage you greatly!” —Andy Andrews, New York Times best-selling author, The Noticer and The Traveler’s Gift

“Sometimes I’m guilty of looking so hard for God that I miss Him right in front of me. May we all be reminded through It’s a God Thing that some of the simplest moments in life can quite possibly be some of God’s greatest miracles.”—Bart Millard, lead singer of MercyMe

“Nothing astonished people in the New Testament more than watching Jesus perform a miracle right before their eyes—and nothing inspires us today more than hearing He did it again! My good friend Don Jacobson, publisher of The Prayer of Jabez, has once again launched the perfect message for today—don’t miss it!”—Bruce Wilkinson, author, The Prayer of Jabez

“There is nothing better than hearing others talk about the ways that God has intervened in their lives. Miracles happen every day all around the world. These stories are incredible.”—Robert D. Smith, author, 20,000 Days and Counting

“God doesn’t need for us to be aware of the miracles He’s performing, but they’re happening every day! It’s a God Thing, a new book from K-LOVE, is a powerful vehicle to tell the story of a number of those miracles.”—Brandon Heath, 2008 New Artist of the Year Dove Award winner

God Laughs & 42 More Surprising Facts About God That Will Change Your Life

Elmer L. Towns

Did you know that God sings? There are many things God does that you may not have thought about ever before–and the more we know, the better we can respond to Him. God sees. God winks. God hears. He cries, He waits, and He runs. He is jealous and gets angry. He smiles, frowns, and laughs! Reflecting on the attributes and activities of God is the best way to become like Him. In God Laughs, Elmer Towns and Charles Billingsley invite the reader to deeply consider God’s character and qualities. They contend that it’s only as we get to know Him that we can become more like Him, and it’s only when we glimpse God for who He is that we can worship Him in Spirit and in truth. Readers are challenged to dig deeply into Scripture, where God reveals that He has a heart . . . and a nose . . . and that He whistles!
