Survive or Thrive: 6 Relationships Every Pastor Needs (PastorServe Series)

Survive or Thrive: 6 Relationships Every Pastor Needs (PastorServe Series)

Jimmy Dodd

Introducing the PastorServe Series from David C Cook, a line of resources developed to stem the tide of pastoral burnout and crisis.

In Survive or Thrive Jimmy Dodd reveals that the majority of pastors are not known—by anyone. They purposely isolate themselves from both staff and congregations so their insecurities, doubts, and failures aren’t exposed. Yet confiding in the wrong person can be a dead-end at best and disastrous at worst. Former pastor Jimmy Dodd reveals how those in pastoral ministry can receive ongoing support, accountability, and restoration from a boss, counselor, trainer, mentor, coach, and good friend.

Discover how you can move from surviving to thriving with the six relationships every pastor needs.

Jimmy Dodd is the founder and president of PastorServe, a ministry that provides care, counseling, and friendship to pastors. His passion is to see pastors thrive. A pastor himself for more than thirty years, Jimmy is now a well-known speaker and is a graduate of Wheaton College and Gordon-Conwell Seminary. Jimmy and his wife, Sally, have five children.

The Bible: Bible Study - The 5 Habits of Highly Effective Christians... (The Bible, Bible Study, Christian, Catholic, Holy Bible)

The Bible: Bible Study – The 5 Habits of Highly Effective Christians… (The Bible, Bible Study, Christian, Catholic, Holy Bible)

Nicole Johnson

Develop a Stronger Relationship with God through the Power of 5 Specific Habits

It’s sad to think that there are Christians who easily take the Gospel for granted. As we continue to live complicated lives, we are often burdened by trivial things that we lose sight of God and His plans for our lives. We’ve become too focused on our own desires that we’ve forgotten about the creator who made us. It may seem like God is so far away and doesn’t want to develop a relationship with us, but the reality is, we’re the ones moving far away from Him.

Instead of praying, reading the bible, worshipping, fellowshipping, and hearing His word preached, we choose to live our lives based on how we want to live them. No wonder there are times when it seems like we can’t feel God’s presence in our lives. We forget about the message of the Gospel and instead run after things that will never satisfy. We may be living comfortable and easy lives because of technology, but that doesn’t make us any better than the Israelites during Moses time. Here we are, saved, and yet we still choose to ignore God’s magnificent power in our lives.

If you’ve always wanted to develop your resolve to becoming a better Christian, this book will teach you everything you need to know about the 5 Habits every believer needs to cultivate. From what it really means to be saved to how we can best prepare our hearts and minds to listen to Sunday preaching, this book is packed with all the information you ever wanted to know about living an abundant and joyful Christian life.

Here is a Preview of What You Will Learn:

What it Means to be Saved
Pray: How to Talk to God…
Read and Study Scripture: Why we Need to Study the Bible…
Worship: The Elements of Spirit filled and True Worship…
Fellowship with other Believers: The Facets of Christian Fellowship…
Listen to God’s Word through Preaching: How to Prepare our Hearts and Minds to be Receptive to God’s Message and so much more!

Once we become part of God’s family, we take on the responsibility of obeying Him and demonstrating our faith. We learn to put our trust and dependence on Him and Him alone. We hold on to His promise that He will bless us with joy and abundance if we draw closer to Him. By developing these 5 habits, it will be much easier to align our personal will with God’s will.

God doesn’t desire for us to be far away from Him. In his Infinite grace and power, He wants to bless us with more than we ever thought would be possible. God has a plan for us all and it’s only by drawing near to Him will that plan unfold. God has already made the first move to bridge the gap between us by offering His one and only son to pay for our sins. Who are we to refuse such an amazing gift?

God is pleased by humility so if we learn to humble ourselves and develop these habits as an act of obedience towards Him, we will be favourable in His sight. Learn how you can fully enjoy His gift of salvation with this book. By following what Holy Scripture says and living your life accordingly, you can be a living testimony of how God can use anyone to bring glory to His name.

Angel Beneath My Wheels: Maybe she was his good luck charm ... an angel beneath his wheels.

Angel Beneath My Wheels: Maybe she was his good luck charm … an angel beneath his wheels.

K. S. Moore

“Kathryn Sue Moore’s inspiring debut, Angel Beneath My Wheels, is brimming with romance, passion, and heart. With a spunky protagonist who can turn heads and change carburetors—how cool is that?!—Christian romance readers and NASCAR fans will flock to this charming, uplifting novel.” ~ Lori Nelson Spielman, best-selling author of The Life List and Sweet Forgiveness

Angel Beneath My Wheels takes you on an ages old journey of the potential to discover trust and healing.” ~ Billy E. Mauldin Jr., President and CEO, Motor Racing Outreach

“Having been married for more than 40 years, and having ministered to late-stage cancer patients for more than 10 years, I had thought that perhaps my heart might have lost its ability to be moved and made emotionally vulnerable. Angel Beneath My Wheels reminded me of the sweetness and innocence of “first love.” My heart was touched by this story and I believe yours will be too.” ~ Rev. Dr. Michael Barry, author of A Reason for Hope, A Season for Hope, The Art of Caregiving and The Forgiveness Project

Beneath his playboy façade, NASCAR driver Luke Brandt yearns for family. Rachel Tate, an inventive, purity-ring-wearing mechanical engineer, wants to prove herself in a male dominated industry. When Luke outbids Rachel on the only muscle cars she could use to test her new vapor-fueled engine, she writes him off, but Luke’s gentle ways and country charm eventually win her over.

As Rachel begins to touch Luke’s heart, he’s haunted by memories of the mother who abandoned him as a boy. But with an intense trust that God will lead her on life’s journey, Rachel perseveres, and her innocence and grace breach Luke’s defenses. As they join forces to bring her remarkable invention to market, their love and lives are threatened by the iron-tight grip that Big Oil holds over the auto industry. Will Rachel hold on to her values? And will Luke realize his final happiness must come through faith, in the One who has always loved him … and always will?

The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Achieving More with Less

The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Achieving More with Less

Richard Koch

How anyone can be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle–the well-known, unpublicized secret that 80 percent of all our results in business and in life stem from a mere 20 percent of our efforts.

The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.

Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today’s business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.

The unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent, and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our businesses, and our lives.

Wicked Women of the Bible

Wicked Women of the Bible

Ann Spangler

What can Jezebel, the Bible’s wickedest queen, reveal about God’s holiness and power and even about his sense of humor?

There are also “wicked good” women like Deborah, Ruth, Hannah, Abigail, Esther, Mary, and more. What do their lives tell us about God’s invincible love and his determined plan to save us?

Mail Order Bride Collection (A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 16)

Stacy Henrie

**Amazon #1 Bestselling series in Clean Romance**

Six Award-Winning Authors have contributed new stories to A Timeless Romance Anthology: Mail Order Bride Collection. Six historical romance novellas set in the Old West.

WRITTEN IN HER HEART, a charming novella by Stacy Henrie, Georgeanna is getting desperate. She can’t fund her favorite orphanage unless she marries and secures the rest of her inheritance left by her father. But her father’s financial planner, Clay, can’t understand why she’s not content with her current situation. Georgie determines to send out a notice as a mail order bride to attract suitors who won’t know her financial situation. Little does she know, Clay takes up the pen and sends her letters of his own under an assumed name. After years of working for Georgie’s father, Clay realizes he isn’t ready to watch her marry another, not when his heart is already claimed by her.

In Kristin Holt’s delightful novella WANTED: MIDWIFE BRIDE Dr. Naomi Thornton thinks she has it all: a beautiful house, a loving husband, and a fulfilling career. But when everything she holds dear is ripped away, Naomi has no choice but to start over. What will she find in the wild and untamed Wyoming Territory? Dr. Joe Chandler has waited years for a wife with the knowledge, skills, and tender heart he yearns for in a medical colleague and lifetime companion. When a midwife arrives with more expertise and secrets than he counted on, Joe quickly discovers there’s more to love and marriage than a simple mail order contract.

In THE SOUND OF HOME, a captivating novella by Annette Lyon, Marilyn is given the choice of either marrying the despicable Victor or being charged with a murder she didn’t commit. Refusing to believe that either is her fate, she finds a third option: she answers a mail order bride advertisement and boards a train to Wyoming to wed a man named Harry. Moments after her arrival, she learns that Harry isn’t who he seemed to be, and the advertisement turns out to be a giant mistake. Harry’s brother Thomas agrees to let her stay until she can figure out what to do next—after all, she simply cannot return to New York—but Marilyn quickly finds herself developing feelings for Thomas.

In Sarah M. Eden’s endearing novella FOR BETTER OR WORSE Gerald Smith, on the advice of his well-meaning neighbors, has decided it’s time to change his lonely existence. Mary Hill, on the advice of her empty pocketbook and non-existent roof over her head, has decided it’s time to secure herself a future. A mail-order marriage, they both realize, is no guarantee of happiness, but it is a risk they are willing to take. However, coming face to face on the train platform, the hapless couple discovers an unexpected truth: marriage to a perfect stranger is sometimes far preferable to the prospect of a lifetime with someone you used to know.

Heather B. Moore’s sweet novella THE INCONVENIENT BRIDE sees Carmela traveling from Boston to Colorado, eager to meet the man she’s been corresponding with and will soon marry. Her brother’s new marriage leaves little room for Carmela in her old life. Upon arrival in Leadville, she faces a rude awakening, and the only one who can understand her predicament is her fiance’s brother, Samuel. But Samuel can’t possibly help her out of an awkward situation, can he? It would be better for all if she returns immediately to Boston and pretends she never traveled to Colorado in the first place.

THE PRICE OF SILVER, an engaging novella by Siân Ann Bessey, Katie leaves New York for Idaho to marry Jake, a man she’s written to a couple of times. But when she steps off the train, his brother Caleb is there to greet her. Jake has gone to take a mining job he couldn’t pass up. Caleb takes Katie back to the family ranch to wait for Jake’s return. The more Caleb gets to know Katie, the more he envies his brother, but he can’t let his heart overrule his head unless Jake changes his mind about his intended bride.
