Friday’s Free and Discounted Kindle Deals: Featured, Nonfiction, and Christian Fiction

We have two featured books today! Shannon Kuzmich writes a series of essays about the trials and tribulations of spiritual formation in the grit and grime of daily life and she is sharing one of those with us today.

Susan Jagannath writes this about her book: “Writing this book helped me relive the walk from Ferrol on the Northern Coast of Spain to Santiago de Compostela. When I could not do the Camino Frances, I didn’t give up, but found this shorter walk, that was also an ancient pilgrimage route. I hope you will enjoy the book enough to come along and have your own adventure in beautiful Spain. Buen Camino!”

Leaving: The Chronicles of Formation - Volume II

Leaving: The Chronicles of Formation – Volume II

Shannon Kuzmich

How does a successful career woman, who has it all and more, leave her wealthy lifestyle and well-ordered world behind?

Leaving, the second volume of essays in The Chronicles of Formation series, captures the fits and starts of a woman’s efforts to break away from her professions’ demands and live her daily life from an eternal perspective. The hurdles of transition and the frustrations of downsizing make for a humorous and poignant commentary on what it sometimes takes to pursue the life we were meant to live.

About the Series

Imagine spending decades driving toward success, enjoying all the goodies along the way, only to one day realize “This isn’t it.” The Chronicles of Formation is a series of four books capturing the sometimes inconvenient and often humorous journey of a woman awakening to God’s call, leaving an entangling life, following after Him, and abiding in the relationship.

Originally written as a series of blog posts, each chapter has been revised to make for a gripping read that will feed your soul and remind you that you’re not alone.

The Camino Ingles: 6 days (or less) to Santiago

The Camino Ingles: 6 days (or less) to Santiago

Susan Jagannath

Do you think you are too old, too young, or not fit enough for an adventure?

What about if it’s a walking adventure in Northern Spain?

Do you want to hike the famous pilgrimage trail, the 500 mile/800 km Camino Frances in Spain, but don’t have 30+ days for that trek? Or are you terrified of the fitness, research, and planning that is required?

The Camino Ingles is the answer!

The Camino Ingles is one of the Northern Caminos, a Galician pilgrimage trail ending in Santiago de Compostela, a great doable walking adventure for anyone of moderate fitness. You may have heard of the Camino, called variously, St. James Way, or Jacobsweg; but there are in fact, many Caminos, and the English Way or Camino Ingles is one of them.

Walking the Camino was a goal of mine last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. I had never even walked five miles, but I wanted to walk the Camino to prove to myself that I could achieve a goal. But, I didn’t have the time for 500 miles, then, I heard of the Camino Ingles. No more excuses! The shorter time and distance of the Camino Ingles was the clincher, and I set out on a quieter, less travelled and less well documented hike through Spain.

This book helps you to set a practical goal and achieve it, by showing you exactly how to:

Walk the Camino Ingles, a Galician route as old as the Camino Frances
Prepare your mind, body and feet to enjoy the long walk
Pack and what to discard to travel light
Plan your travel and arrival in Spain in the shortest time
Decide on strategies to overcome obstacles
Find the medieval way posts for an authentic experience
Enjoy the food of the region
Book, or not book your bed for a good nights’ rest
Get your Compostela in Santiago
Find more information if you really want it

Follow this book to complete a real pilgrimage trek in only 6 days, there is enough detail to guide you each day. Go on, what’s stopping you? It’s only one step at a time!

How to Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird

How to Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird

Amy Lively

“I want to love my neighbor, but I don’t know how.”

Most of us feel guilty about Christ’s command to love our neighbor, but let’s be honest–we don’t even know most of the people living around us.

How can we love people we don’t even know? Besides, doesn’t it count as “loving our neighbor” when we send money to missionaries and put out yard signs for our church? Are we supposed to just knock on our neighbors’ doors and tell them about Jesus?

“They’ll think I’m weird.”

How to Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird helps you overcome fears about getting to know your neighbors and sharing your faith. You’ll learn simple, practical ways to get to know your neighbors, using your God-given personality. As you venture out of the comfort of your living room and into the lives of your neighbors, you’ll form authentic friendships, create a safer community, and find fulfillment in obeying Christ’s #2 command.

Loving your neighbor isn’t a random command; it’s God’s perfect plan.

“A very timely book for a very isolated culture. Amy Lively offers practical help and guidance in the neglected practice of hospitality.”–Dr. Dennis Rainey, president, FamilyLife

“Amy has packed the book with creative and practical ways to love those God has called our ‘neighbor.'”–Glynnis Whitwer, author of Everyday Confetti, executive director of communications, Proverbs 31 Ministries

“I don’t know when I’ve been more excited about a book or when I’ve agreed with an author with more enthusiasm. Amy’s passion for her neighbors is catching.”–Nan McCullough, Entertaining For Eternity

“This ministry is changing lives. Amy has followed God’s leading into an untapped area of people that need Jesus. What a simple idea of reaching out to your neighborhood–the area that God placed you in for His purposes. Amy’s ideas and excellent resources have offered a no-excuse zone for this ministry. The Lord said, ‘Love me and love your neighbor.’ He chose Amy to show us the way. Thank you for this amazing resource!”–Chrissy Dunham, director of women’s ministry at Prestonwood Baptist Church, Plano, Texas

“Amy knows God has given each of us a corner of the world to share the love of Jesus and the hope found in His Word. Her book equips women, spiritually and practically, to answer this call and open their hearts and homes to friends and neighbors.”–Wendy Blight, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and author

This book and practice is a must for everyone desiring to honor and obey the Lord.”–Debbie Stuart, church and leadership development director, Women of Faith

” Amy gives us the keys to really connect with those who live around us–not with an agenda, but with a heart toward real relationships. A must-read for anyone who believes that ‘Love thy neighbor’ really starts at your front door.”–Kathi Lipp, coauthor of The Cure for the Perfect Life and author of The Husband Project

“Amy shows us, step-by-step, how to conquer our fears, connect with our neighbors, and have fun too! Highly recommend!”–Cindy Bultema, speaker, Bible teacher, and author of Red Hot Faith

Give Yourself a Break: Turning Your Inner Critic into a Compassionate Friend

Give Yourself a Break: Turning Your Inner Critic into a Compassionate Friend

Kim Fredrickson

It’s time to start treating yourself the way you treat others

As children we’re taught to treat others the way we would like to be treated. But as adults, we often need to turn that old maxim around. We’re good at showing compassion to other people–but many of us have trouble showing that same compassion to ourselves. We say things to ourselves we would never say to a friend. And all this negative self-talk can have a devastating effect on our lives and relationships.

Licensed marriage and family therapist Kim Fredrickson wants you to stop beating yourself up. Grounding her advice in Scripture, she offers practical steps, specific exercises, and compassionate words to say in order to build a loving relationship with yourself. Through inspiring stories of transformation, she’ll help you learn to show yourself the kind of grace and understanding you offer to others–and to change your relationships, your outlook on life, and your view of yourself in the process.

“Kim Fredrickson guides us back to healthy self-care as the foundation for impacting others. It’s an excellent guide for the journey.”–Dr. Mike Bechtle, speaker, consultant, and author of People Can’t Drive You Crazy If You Don’t Give Them the Keys

“Filled with practical tools and stories of everyday people who successfully learned to treat themselves with care and compassion.”–Georgia Shaffer, PA, licensed psychologist and author of Avoiding the 12 Relationship Mistakes Women Make

“Give Yourself a Break addresses self-hatred and shame in a fresh way and challenges us with a grace-filled approach to seeing our inadequacies and sins.”–Leslie Vernick, licensed counselor, coach, speaker, and author of The Emotionally Destructive Relationship

Kim Fredrickson has been a licensed marriage and family therapist and certified Christian life coach for more than thirty years. An adjunct professor, speaker, and author, she loves helping people become equipped spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually with practical skills to live more effective and fulfilling lives. She has been married to her husband, Dave, for thirty-seven years and they have two grown children. Learn more and read her blog at www.kimfredrickson.com.
