This Is How A Heart Breaks (Healing of the Heart Book 1)

This Is How A Heart Breaks (Healing of the Heart Book 1)

Deborah Dearth

Montgomery Lawrence and his wife Kathryn had enjoyed a whirlwind courtship and marriage, which many had nicknamed “The Prince and the Commoner”. But now the one-time Hollywood icon and successful businessman is dead, and those closest to him are left to mourn him in shock.

His friends and family gather at his wake and remember him. They know that Monte’s public face and private one were not the same. His fondness for Scotch had all but destroyed his 20-year marriage to Kathryn and he had become mean-tempered and verbally abusive, although never violent.

Kathryn’s faith in God and that fact she felt she had to honor the marriage vows in both good and bad times kept her with Monte longer than she should have stayed. Her walking out on him unleashed a vortex of emotion and events that changed the course of her marriage and her life.

Russ, his business partner and best friend, also harbors a secret. He is in love with Kathryn, but now that the door is open he is hesitant. The time isn’t right. It’s too soon. He knows that he needs to be patient and be there for Kathryn and Grayson.

Meanwhile Kathryn’s house keeper and confidant, Anna, has guessed that Russ is in love with Kathryn. Can she keep his secret or will she let it slip? She has a secret of her own to confide when the time is right.

And what of Grayson, Monte and Kathryn’s son, who is a freshman at Ohio State University? Gray and his father were close. How will he deal with the loss of his father? Will he turn to alcohol or something equally as addictive? Or will he grow up faster because of it?

Now each of them must deal with the aftermath of Monte’s death and what it means for their lives now.

Soul Keeping: Caring For the Most Important Part of You

Soul Keeping: Caring For the Most Important Part of You

John Ortberg

The soul is NOT “a theological and abstract subject.”

The soul is the coolest, eeriest, most mysterious, evocative, crucial, sacred, eternal, life-directing, fragile, indestructible, controversial, expensive dimension of your existence.

Jesus said it’s worth more than the world.

You’d be an idiot not to prize it above all else.

Shouldn’t you get pretty clear on exactly what it is?

Shouldn’t you know what it runs on?

Wouldn’t it be worth knowing how to care for it?

Two things are for sure. One is: you have a soul. The other is: if you don’t look after this one you won’t be issued a replacement.

Bestselling author John Ortberg writes another classic that will help readers discover their soul and take their relationship with God to the next level.

Unseen Realities

Unseen Realities

R.C Sproul

The concept of the invisible spiritual realm is something which is difficult for us to grasp. What we can see, hear, and feel we can take on face value that it is reality. But what about those things that are unseen? Scripture speaks about heaven, hell, angels and demons which are a part of this invisible spiritual realm. Internationally renowned Bible teacher R. C. Sproul helps us gain an understanding of these things so that we can come to a realisation that in fact all four are true realities that impact upon our everyday lives.

Dr. R. C. Sproul is a respected teacher, theologian and pastor. He is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries. He currently serves as the director of Serve International and as senior minister of preacher and teaching at Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida. He can be heard teaching daily on the ‘Renewing Your Mind’ broadcast throughout sixty countries. He has a real heart for people to hear and do the Word of God in their lives.
