The Journey Home: Home is more than just a place

Nancy Segovia

Separated from their mother and lost in the woods, two runaway slave children travel the Underground Railroad in search of both freedom and a forever home.

Thomas and Cassie’s mother hadn’t included Old Red in her plans to meet the Underground Railroad conductor. At the planned meeting time, the master’s old hound dog ripped her plans to shreds as surely as he would her two children. Using herself as a decoy, the family separated. Her final words to Thomas and Cassie were to follow the river and stay in the water to hide their scent. They did as she instructed not knowing if this would be the last time they would see her, or that this night would be the beginning of a long, dangerous journey with an unknown future.

The Wandering Tree (The Strewn Field Tales Book 1)

The Wandering Tree (The Strewn Field Tales Book 1)

Daniel Wimberley

Poverty has a way of stripping childhood of its dignity, a fact of life that Lincoln Chase knows all too well. Wearing thrift store clothes, praying to the gods of adolescence that some loud-mouthed kid doesn’t recognize his old shirt. Building up firewood reserves while other boys are out popping fly balls without a care in the world. It’s a relentless condition without a single redeeming quality.

Of course, being poor is something that Lincoln has had time to accept. That his father is a convicted murderer, on the other hand… well, that’s a fresh wound that’ll take some getting used to. And soon enough it’ll be the least of his problems.

Yet all is not lost. Because in a long neglected hayfield, something extraordinary is happening—something so contrary to human thinking that the rules of possibility begin to unravel. And for a boy like Lincoln, it doesn’t merely change the way he sees the world.

It changes everything.

The Listening Heart: Hearing God in Prayer

The Listening Heart: Hearing God in Prayer

Judy Gordon Morrow

Listen to My heart in the quiet of your heart . . .

More. Life is full to overflowing, but we crave an illusive more. Via social networking, airwaves, and TV, our culture tells us to strive for more stuff, more activities, more adventure–you name it. Yet we are often left feeling unfulfilled and wanting. Empty, even. With so many demands for our attention, it is difficult to quiet our minds long enough to hear the still, small voice of our loving Father, and to listen to the One who desires to bring us so much more than the noise of everyday life.

Judy Gordon Morrow discovered the more when her world was turned upside down and she knelt before God to seek Him and ask for His help. More than a decade ago, in tear-stained notebooks, she began to pen God’s responses to her desperate prayers. Now, in The Listening Heart, Judy invites you to spend a year hearing from the God Who Speaks–the God who wants to speak to you. Each daily devotion echoes the Father’s love and care for you, offering hope, comfort, encouragement, and more–a rich closeness with God that will satisfy the longings of your heart.

A Household Gospel: Fulfilling the Great Commission in Our Homes

A Household Gospel: Fulfilling the Great Commission in Our Homes

Mathew B. Sims

In Scripture, parents are instructed to teach their kids how to love God and saturate their home with the gospel (Deut 4:9, 6:1-7; Eph 6:104). Husbands and wives are commanded to mirror Jesus in their marriages (Eph 5:22-33). We understand these commands in light of the gospel—in light of Jesus Christ (2 Cor 4:6). Jesus is the hero of our families.

That’s what A Household Gospel is about. It’s ordinary means rooted in an extraordinary gospel. It’s about starting the great commission in our homes. It’s about rehearsing the gospel story when we sit to eat, lay down to sleep, rise up in the morning, and everywhere in between.

Do No Work: Beat Burnout, Find Inner Peace, and Strengthen Your Faith by Studying the Most Overlooked of the Ten Commandments

Do No Work: Beat Burnout, Find Inner Peace, and Strengthen Your Faith by Studying the Most Overlooked of the Ten Commandments

Andrew Gilmore

“The Sabbath doesn’t apply to me. That Old Testament stuff isn’t relevant anymore.”

If you’ve ever said that, you could not be more wrong.

The first Sabbath occurred before there was Jew or gentile; after six days of creation God rested. And don’t forget that Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made for man” (Mark 2:27). Not, “The Sabbath was made for the Jew.”

But even if you do believe the fourth commandment applies to you, how do you apply it to your life?

It’s hard to stop and rest for an hour let alone an entire day. Besides that, busyness is a badge—if you’re not busy, you’re not trying. Sure, you might make it to church every Sunday, but while there all you can think about is the to do list you need to work on.

Andrew Gilmore was in the same boat: distracted at church, stressed out by his to do list, and unsure if the fourth commandment even applied to him.

But a few years ago, he read the Bible cover to cover for the first time. As he made his way through the Old Testament he was struck by how many times the scriptures mention the Sabbath. In fact, the word “Sabbath” appears ninety-six times in the Old Testament, 154 times overall.

He began asking, “How could something so prevalent not be relevant to my walk with Christ?” He concluded that, at the very lest, the Sabbath reveals something about the character of God and how He wants His people to live.

So Andrew set out on a mission to uncover the meaning behind the fourth commandment.

How does it apply to the Christian?
How should one behave on the Sabbath?
What does it mean to “work”?

The deeper he dug, the more he realized just how important the Sabbath is. He compiled all of his findings over the course of two years to bring you “Do No Work: Beat Burnout, Find Inner Peace, and Strengthen Your Faith by Studying the Most Overlooked of the Ten Commandments.”

In “Do No Work” Andrew gives a thorough examination of the Sabbath commandment: it’s origin, its application to Christians, and its ability to transcend the material world.

This short book is crammed full of information, inspiring anecdotes, and even some theology.

You’ll learn:

– The 2 steps required to beat burnout
– 3 ways to get better rest
– The real reason you don’t have peace
– The most common Sabbath myth
– What the Sabbath and heaven have in common
– How to skyrocket your faith to levels you’ve never had before

And more!

Read the book Dan Miller (of “48 Days to the Work You Love” and “Wisdom Meets Passion”) mentioned on his weekly podcast saying, “I love the concept.” And, “It’s really well done.” And find out what it means to honor God on the Sabbath.

Apply the principles behind this book and you’ll reduce stress, draw closer to God, and have a much improved grasp on the Bible as a whole.

John the Pupil: A Novel

John the Pupil: A Novel

David Flusfeder

“A superbly written and intellectually stimulating novel.”—The Independent (London)

Since he was a young boy, John has studied at the Franciscan monastery outside Oxford, under the tutelage of friar and magus Roger Bacon, an inventor, scientist, and polymath. In 1267 Bacon arranges for his young pupil to embark on a journey of penitence to Italy. But the pilgrimage is a guise to deliver scientific instruments and Bacon’s great opus to His Holiness, Pope Clement IV. Two companions will accompany John, both Franciscan novices: the handsome, sweet-tempered Brother Andrew; and the brutish Brother Bernard.

John the Pupil is a road movie, recounting the journey taken from Oxford to Viterbo by John and his two companions. Modeling themselves after Saint Francis, the men trek by foot through Europe, preaching the gospel and begging for sustenance. In addition to fighting off ambushes from thieves hungry for the thing of power they are carrying, the holy trio is tried and tempted by all sorts of sins: ambition, pride, lust—and by the sheer hell and heaven of medieval life.

“Astonishing.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Strikingly original . . . a hugely enjoyable read.”—The Times (London)

Butterflies on Breezes: A Christian Romance (Urban Farm Fresh Romance Book 2)

Butterflies on Breezes: A Christian Romance (Urban Farm Fresh Romance Book 2)

Valerie Comer

From a USA Today bestselling author!
Like a butterfly on a summer breeze, love rarely lands where it’s expected.

Working for her dad’s landscaping business stifles Linnea Ranta. When she’s invited to design and build a community garden with an intriguing master carpenter, she seizes the chance to unfurl her wings, but at what expense to her heart?

Logan Dermott eases back his flirting when he senses Linnea’s fragility, but she has more backbone than he suspected. As they work together, Logan finds he’s falling for her, but it may be too late to win her love.

Will Linnea break free of her chrysalis and fly away before Logan realizes what he almost had?

Excerpt

Jasmine tipped open the first pizza box, releasing the full aromatic force.

Logan reached for the first piece and slid it onto Linnea’s plate. If Jasmine hadn’t been quick enough to get her own, he’d have served her, too. As it was, he put the next slice on his own plate. “Thanks, Jasmine. This smells amazing. I appreciate the invitation to join you.”

Jasmine grinned. “It looks like you’ve earned it. Thanks for helping.”

“He only got here twenty minutes ago.”

Nice one, Alex. Logan smiled at the other man. “So true. I’d have been here earlier if I’d known I was needed. As it is, I ran into your cousin Peter and he invited me to play some three-on-three. Said they were short a guy.”

Alex’s gaze hardened. “I told him I was giving Jas and Linnea a hand today. We could’ve practiced tomorrow.”

“Oh, sorry to take your place.” Take that any way you want, Santoro. “I don’t mind admitting I haven’t played much basketball before. They whupped me, but I’m still alive.”

Jasmine’s eyes danced. Linnea darted quick glances between him and Alex. Apparently they were fooling no one. That might make it easier when the time came to put Alex firmly in his place.

No way. How could he be having these thoughts? He barely knew Linnea. He wasn’t going to settle down for years and years, not until he’d seen the remaining reaches of the planet. Casual dating was fine, but that was for a certain type of woman. Someone who understood it was just for innocent short-term fun.

Linnea didn’t seem like that sort of woman.

About the Urban Farm Fresh Christian Romance Series

While the Urban Farm Fresh Romance series shares a world and some characters from the Farm Fresh Romance series, it stands complete in its own setting. Each story stands alone.

The six (or more) novels in this series will release from 2016 through 2018.

One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land

One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land

Priscilla Shirer

The Egyptians in Exodus 1 were intent on enslaving the Israelites, wearing them down so that God’s chosen people would become disillusioned and not live up to their destiny. Of the original two million Israelites who received God’s invitation to enter the Promised Land, only two actually entered it!

Similarly, modern day Christians often hear and understand the promises of God each Sunday morning at church but then rarely choose to experience them in everyday life. In One in a Million, Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer invites us to change that pattern for good, living beyond our circumstances and expecting to see God move in miraculous ways day after day. Without a doubt, we can find and follow God’s purpose for our journey. We can make it to the Promised Land!
