Knowing God Through Fasting

Knowing God Through Fasting

Elmer Towns

People fast for many reasons . . . to break an addiction . . . to seek God for healing . . . to discover the answer to a lingering problem . . . and some fast for revival. But the greatest reason to fast is to get to know God intimately and to feed on the Bread of Life.

The book in your hands is not an instruction manual on the methods of fasting or on how to pray. Rather, Dr. Elmer Towns describes the spirit of fasting that leads to an intimate knowing of Jesus Christ. He will show you that fasting is:

tasting the goodness of the Lord.
waiting in God’s presence to become like Him.
coming to Jesus to enjoy His presence.
drinking from God’s presence to get spiritual satisfaction.
learning to discipline yourself even as Jesus did.
growing spiritually into the image of Jesus.
gaining spiritual perception of God’s world.
entering God’s rest as you know His heart.

Guaranteed to Create a Spiritual Hunger and Thirst Within Your Soul That Only God Can Satisfy.

Crispens Point: A Christian Novel (The Blackberry County Chronicles Book 1)

JoHannah Reardon

Charlotte is a successful romance novelist who escapes city life and moves to the small town of Crispens Point in Blackberry County. She immediately connects with some of the quirky but friendly residents and begins to feel at home right away. When a friend invites her to attend a local community church, Charlotte is attracted to the pastor, but refuses to acknowledge that attraction because of some dark things in her past.

What is the mysterious thing in Charlotte’s past that seems to dominate everything? Is it enough to keep her from ever finding a lasting relationship?

What is unique about JoHannah Reardon’s romances?
JoHannah Reardon loves to write “Jane Austin” type of romances in contemporary settings. For example, the pastor’s personality in this story is similar to Mr. Darcy’ personality in Pride and Prejudice. Just as Darcy seems one way at the beginning of the book and quite another way at the end, so does the pastor in this story. So, at the start he may not be everyone’s idea of a romantic lead, but by the end he proves himself truly loving.

Also, you will never find gorgeous women and extremely handsome men in JoHannah Reardon’s stories. She prefers to write about the person next door who you may wave to as you pull out of your driveway each day. Her romances are lighthearted and funny, but not mushy. And her characters’ faith informs everything they do.

Welcome to the Funny Farm: The All-True Misadventures of a Woman on the Edge

Karen Scalf Linamen

What can a woman do for an encore after she backs over her husband’s new laptop with her car?

How long does it take to defrost a turkey with a hair dryer?

What do you say to a house guest who, before going to the bathroom, has to fish two wooden blocks and a set of car keys from your commode?

There is no end to the sources of frustration, challenge, disaster–and humor!–in a woman’s life, and there is no one more skilled at finding the merriment and wisdom in the everyday foibles we all share than Karen Linamen.
Welcome to the Funny Farm guides you on a side-splitting, hopeful, and entertaining tour of the challenges women face–and in true, tongue-in-cheek Linamen style, no topic is off limits! These fifty readings, originally published on the Women of Faith web site (www.women-of-faith.com), cover everything from baby showers to cell phones, holiday frenzy to Hamburger Helper, dumb blonde jokes to well-woman exams.
Karen’s collection of observations will inspire and entertain you (though not necessarily in that order) and ultimately shed light on principles of spiritual wellness and Christian living that will enrich your life as much as her rib-tickling stories will delight your heart.

Karen Linamen is a regular contributor to Today’s Christian Woman and the author of numerous books, including Just Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt and Sometimes I Wake Up Grumpy . . . and Sometimes I Let Him Sleep. She lives in Duncanville, Texas, with her husband and two daughters.

Living Beyond Your Feelings: Controlling Emotions So They Don't Control

Living Beyond Your Feelings: Controlling Emotions So They Don’t Control

Joyce Meyer

The average person has 70,000 thoughts every day, and many of those thoughts trigger a corresponding emotion. No wonder so many of us often feel like we’re controlled by our emotions. Our lives would be much improved if we controlled them.

In LIVING BEYOND YOUR FEELINGS, Joyce Meyer examines the gamut of feelings that human beings experience. She discusses the way that the brain processes and stores memories and thoughts, and then – emotion by emotion – she explains how we can manage our reactions to those emotions. By doing that, she gives the reader a toolbox for managing the way we react to the onslaught of feelings that can wreak havoc on our lives.

In this book, Meyer blends the wisdom of the Bible with the latest psychological research and discusses: the 4 personality types and their influence on one’s outlook, the impact of stress on physical and emotional health, the power of memories, the influence of words on emotions, anger & resentment, sadness, loss & grief, fear, guilt & regret, the power of replacing reactions with pro-actions, and the benefits of happiness.

Hands Free Mama: A Guide to Putting Down the Phone, Burning the To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters!

Rachel Macy Stafford

“Rachel Macy Stafford’s post “The Day I Stopped Saying Hurry Up” was a true phenomenon on The Huffington Post, igniting countless conversations online and off about freeing ourselves from the vicious cycle of keeping up with our overstuffed agendas. Hands Free Mama has the power to keep that conversation going and remind us that we must not let our lives pass us by.”

–Arianna Huffington, Chair, President, and Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, nationally syndicated columnist, and author of thirteen books

DISCOVER THE POWER, JOY, AND LOVE of Living “Hands Free”

If technology is the new addiction, then multi-tasking is the new marching order. We check our email while cooking dinner, send a text while bathing the kids, and spend more time looking into electronic screens than into the eyes of our loved ones. With our never-ending to-do lists and jam-packed schedules, it’s no wonder we’re distracted.

But this isn’t the way it has to be.

In July 2010, special education teacher and mother Rachel Macy Stafford decided enough was enough. Tired of losing track of what matters most in life, Rachel began practicing simple strategies that enabled her to momentarily let go of largely meaningless distractions and engage in meaningful soul-to-soul connections. She started a blog to chronicle her endeavors and soon saw how both external and internal distractions had been sabotaging her happiness and preventing her from bonding with the people she loves most.

Hands Free Mama is the digital society’s answer to finding balance in a media-saturated, perfection-obsessed world. It doesn’t mean giving up all technology forever. It doesn’t mean forgoing our jobs and responsibilities. What it does mean is seizing the little moments that life offers us to engage in real and meaningful interaction. It means looking our loved ones in the eye and giving them the gift of our undivided attention, leaving the laundry till later to dance with our kids in the rain, and living a present, authentic, and intentional life despite a world full of distractions.

So join Rachel and go hands-free. Discover what happens when you choose to open your heart—and your hands—to the possibilities of each God-given moment.

Don't Panic!: How to Keep Going When the Going Gets Tough

Don’t Panic!: How to Keep Going When the Going Gets Tough

Maureen Pratt

In this immensely comforting book, Maureen Pratt—award-wining playwright, journalist, patient advocate, and author of the syndicated column “Living Well”—offers antidotes to panic and despair. Using science, personal experiences and inspiration from the lives of others, Pratt asserts that “the times that try men’s souls” can, in fact, strengthen us. Memories of surviving them can give us greater courage. And most importantly, they enable us to witness how the Spirit works no matter what might be falling apart around us.

For anyone dealing with out-of-control events, this book will be a welcome guide to nurturing the internal resources given us directly by the creator—among them creativity, adaptability, foresight and compassion—that enable us to be stable when we are shaken and safe when we are bruised.

We do not need to take on the cloak of victim. We do not have to crumble under the weight of adversity. We don’t need to panic. But we could all use a bit more strength and courage. Don’t Panic! is a companion for anyone who needs help discovering the spiritual strength and heroic qualities within themselves.

He Speaks in the Silence: Finding Intimacy with God by Learning to Listen

He Speaks in the Silence: Finding Intimacy with God by Learning to Listen

Diane Comer

He Speaks in the Silence is about Diane Comer’s search for the kind of intimacy with God every woman longs for. It is a story of trying to be a good girl, of following the rules, of longing for a satisfaction that eludes us.

Disappointed with all Diane had been told was supposed to fulfill her, she begged God in desperation to give her more.

And He did. But first He took her through a trial so debilitating it almost destroyed what little faith she had.

He let her go deaf.

Using vivid parallels between her deafness and every woman’s struggle to hear God, this book shows women not only how Diane, as a deaf woman, hears in everyday life, but also how she can learn to listen to God in the midst of her own loud life, finding intimacy with God and the deep soul satisfaction she longs for.

The Bull Rider’s Bride: inspirational western romance (Lone Star Brides Book 2)

Vickie McDonough

ECPA bestselling author Vickie McDonough continues the Lone Star Brides series with this heart-warming story of lost love.

Dusty Starr is unstoppable in the rodeo arena, but when it comes to love? He was bucked off long ago. Now he has a second chance at love, but will he have what it takes to win?

Champion bull rider Dusty Starr is at the top of his game—until a bull throws him and stomps on his leg. He goes home to heal and watch after his grandma until he can rejoin the circuit. While there are no guarantees that bull riding is in his future, his past is alive and well in the form of Gramma’s beautiful physical therapist—a woman he never expected to see again.

Physical therapist Lindsey Lang once loved Dusty, but then tragedy struck because of his younger brother’s recklessness, and Dusty did something she never thought he’d do. He abandoned her, leaving her to mourn alone. Being assigned to Grandma Starr is hard enough, but with Dusty there, Lindsey’s sure her heart won’t survive.

Against all expectations, friendship renews, and Dusty dares to hope Lindsey will forgive him. She’s the only girl he’s ever loved and he aims to get her back. But friendship is one thing. A second chance at love? That will take more gumption than riding a rank bull—and then some.

Amy has never had a home. Will she find one in the arms of a cowboy?

This is Daniel Starr’s year. He’s moving up the rankings on the bull-riding circuit and is determined to catch his twin brother. Nothing is going to stop him. Well, almost nothing.

Amy knows all about the swashbuckling Starr Brothers, but anyone who turns his back on her beloved Pecan–and on his own grandmother–doesn’t deserve admiration. If Amy had been lucky enough to have family like Grandma Starr, her life would have been so different! Well, she’s going to make sure Daniel does his duty. But the longer he stays in Pecan, the harder it’ll be to see him go…

The prodigal son is back. Ever since the terrible mistake he made in high school—a mistake that cost his best friend his life—bullfighter Luke Starr has stayed far away from Pecan, Texas, and his family. But with his twin brothers gone on their respective honeymoons, Luke is forced to come back to town to watch over Gramma and the family ranch. And he can’t wait to leave again. Because being home hurts more than being stomped on by a bull—and it’s only a matter of time until he messes up all over again.

Special ed teacher Jess Sadler will do anything for her students—even abandon her comfort zone to convince a reluctant rodeo cowboy to give “horse lessons” to a student she can’t reach. But when feelings for Luke blindside Jess, she knows she’s in trouble. The man is counting down the minutes until he can leave Pecan. Will he take her heart with him when he goes?

Then a little boy goes missing on the family ranch, and Luke must confront the ghosts of his past or lose the future he never dreamed was possible.
