Lighthouse of Hope - A Day by Day Journey for Fear-Free Living

Lighthouse of Hope – A Day by Day Journey for Fear-Free Living

Sue Falcone

A spirit of fear can take over life and dominate us in a way God never intended. It is a proven fact that fear is at the root of stress, and 75 to 90 percent of visits to primary-care physicians result from stress-related disorders. Is this God’s plan for us? Never!

In The Lighthouse of Hope discover:

•God did not give us a Spirit of Fear.
•Keep healthy fear from growing into permanent entrapment.
•Recognize your fears and conquer them— God’s Way!

Fear can dominate us in a way God never intended. But there is a beacon of hope for those trapped in fear. This book is a pathway to God’s plan for believers to live a life free of stress and fear.

We don’t think there has ever been a time in America when a Lighthouse of Hope is more needed. There can be no success in life without hope. The hope that comes by faith in the Lord Jesus and gives real peace and joy. This will enrich all who need life. Sue writes from her experience and also from her heart. It is an enjoyable and timely read for hopeful living in these days.

Who Is Jesus? (Crucial Questions Series Book 1)

Who Is Jesus? (Crucial Questions Series Book 1)

R.C. Sproul

Summary

A fraud, a madman…or God incarnate?

No person in history has provoked such widely divergent assessments as Jesus of Nazareth. Some say He was a cunning fraud, while others say He must have been out of His mind. In many cases His story is altered to suit the fancies of those seeking to make Him an ally for a host of militant causes.

However, as Dr. R.C. Sproul points out in this Crucial Questions booklet, there is compelling evidence that Jesus was something more—that He was, in fact, God in the flesh. By wrestling with the biblical titles for Jesus and the accounts of His life and ministry, Dr. Sproul unfolds the scriptural portrait of Jesus, the Son of God.

Mama B - A Time to Speak (Book 1)

Mama B – A Time to Speak (Book 1)

Michelle Stimpson

The good folks at Mt. Zion Baptist are doing their best to keep the church flowing smoothly while Pastor Phillips takes time off to be with his wife in her final days. Beatrice “Mama B” Jackson even opens her home so that the women’s groups can continue to meet faithfully after some “rascal” stole the copper from the church’s air conditioning unit. With her semi-estranged granddaughter and great-grandson staying in the guest room, Mama B soon has a full house.

When the interim preacher and his wife start touting messages that don’t line up with the Bible, Mama B wonders how and if she can intervene without causing strife in the congregation or discouraging the young couple.

But Mama B can only take so much of this foolishness. Soon enough, Mama B will realize that there is much more at stake than she or anyone else at Mt. Zion ever imagined. And it’s time to speak.

Mama B – A Time to Speak is full of godly wisdom and humor that will make you take a deep breath after that last page and smile from the inside out. Fans of the classic “Miss Julia” will enjoy Mama B to the fullest!

Like many people, you’ve done your best to gain control of your life—to force reality to fit into the confines of your high expectations. Reality, though, has a way of repeatedly dashing your hopes and crushing your dreams. You’ve been told to believe God is in control, but countless dark and painful circumstances have your mind filled with questions that desperately beg answers: Why can’t life ever go according to my plan? How do I trust God in the midst of chaos? Does He really know what’s best for me?

You might survive on your own for a season, but sooner or later you’ll be forced to admit you can’t make it alone. Yet you fear that letting God take control will take you places you’re not ready or willing to go. But it’s in times of desperation and uncertainty that your faith has the opportunity to grow, leading to what you desperately need the most: the peace of God which surpasses all understanding.

Join bestselling author Cherie Hill as she reveals the good news that life may not go according to your plan, but it does go according to His.

The Shock of Night (The Darkwater Saga Book #1)

The Shock of Night (The Darkwater Saga Book #1)

Patrick W. Carr

The Darkwater Claims All Who Enter It.
All But One.

When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded, Willet Dura, reeve to the king of Bunard, is called to investigate. As he begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word.

Willet returns to his task, but the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers, and his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, as though he can divine their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he’s been passed the rarest gift of all–a gift that’s not supposed to exist.

Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he’s pulled into a dangerous conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world–a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his inability to remember how he escaped the Darkwater Forest–and what happened to him inside it.

Moore To Love

Moore To Love

Faith Andrews

I used to imagine that life would be easier, more enjoyable, if I were tall, blond, and supermodel thin. But real life—like the average, every day woman—is full of curves and imperfections, and many opportunities to learn that it’s not the number on the scale that measures the capacity of your heart.

After years of struggling with poor self esteem and too many crash diets to count, I finally got wise—and hired a trainer. With an enthusiastic push from my brother’s fiancé and more motivation than a Joel Osteen sermon, I, Madeline “Leni” Moore, am ready to ditch the oh-woe-is-me act.

That is, until I smack head-on into a tree and collide with him. Lane Sheffield is the guy you drool over from afar. One look at him the first day on the runner’s track, and my panties are up in flames. He’s out of my league. Slim, sleek, and athletic to my plump, dull, and unfit. Lane has no reason to like me, but to my utter shock . . . he does and this newfound attention from the opposite sex has me all sorts of baffled.

What starts out as a healthy journey to lose some of the extra me, turns into a quest to find my true self. Will the need to fit in and finally have someone to call my own lead me to my weight loss goal or my happiness goal? I’ve focused so long on being skinny, what will it take for me to learn the ultimate lesson—that beauty is only skin deep?
