The Art of Brave Living: Be Brave Today

The Art of Brave Living: Be Brave Today

Diane Cunningham

Most of us don’t consider our lives or ourselves brave. We go through the day and we live our lives and don’t consider anything about that particularly special. We are who we are.

But every time we take a little detour in the path we walk in order to be true to ourselves, we’re being brave. Every time we step out of our comfort zone, we’re being brave. Every time we stare rejection in the face and still move forward, brave is giving us the strength. Every time we push through a crisis, provide a shoulder to lean on, or reach out a helping hand, we show the world what brave looks like.

Brave is a mother who lives with the knowledge that each moment, death stalks her children. Brave is walking beside a loved one as they’re wheeled into surgery, knowing that you may never see them or talk to them again. Brave is holding the hand of a child with cancer and presenting a picture of strength when all you want to do is crumple before God and cry.

Brave is painted in the face of a wife fleeing her abuser, in the journeys to a foreign land, in the decision to pursue a career when everyone is telling you it can’t be done, in walking obedient to God in providing ministry to others who are in need or hurting. Brave is standing on trembling knees, with fear waiting to devour you, and refusing to cower any longer.

The Art of Brave Living takes us through the stories of remarkable women who found their brave. These stories aren’t about one journey, but a lifetime of choices and decisions that empower them with strength and purpose. They help us see that each time we meet life’s challenges head on with dignity and grace, even if we’re in tears, we mastering the art of brave living. Their stories inspire us to recognize and embrace the brave that stands before us in every decision we make.

Seeking Refuge: On the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis

Stephan Bauman

What will rule our hearts: fear or compassion?

We can’t ignore the refugee crisis—arguably the greatest geo-political issue of our time—but how do we even begin to respond to something so massive and complex?

In Seeking Refuge, three experts from World Relief, a global organization serving refugees, offer a practical, well-rounded, well-researched guide to the issue.

Who are refugees and other displaced peoples?
What are the real risks and benefits of receiving them?
How do we balance compassion and security?

Drawing from history, public policy, psychology, many personal stories, and their own unique Christian worldview, the authors offer a nuanced and compelling portrayal of the plight of refugees and the extraordinary opportunity we have to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Subversive Jesus: An Adventure in Justice, Mercy, and Faithfulness in a Broken World

Subversive Jesus: An Adventure in Justice, Mercy, and Faithfulness in a Broken World

Zondervan

A broken world demands a response.

Subversive Jesus is the story of one family’s experiment in putting the most counter-cultural teachings of Christ into practice. When Jesus says invite the poor for a meal, Craig and his family welcome homeless friends, local crack addicts, and women from the street corner over for dinner. When Jesus proclaims freedom for the captive, they organize Pirates of Justice flash mobs to protest cruise ship exploitation. When Jesus teaches love for enemies, they make homemade cookies and lemonade for the local drug dealers, and none of them show up! This adventure takes Craig’s family from the slums of Cambodia to inner city Canada and back again.

You might think that Jesus’ most subversive teachings should be systematically laid out in a theological textbook. With plenty of dull footnotes. But Jesus knows well that we are people of story and grit. We need to see theological ideas in messy human form so they can spark something real in our imagination. We need to see other people screw up so we can laugh or weep and then imagine that we might dare to risk failure too.

Allow their journey to inspire your own. Allow Jesus to subvert what you think you already know. And you’ll find that this book becomes an invitation to say yes to this subversive Jesus and do something courageous with your life – for the sake of justice, mercy, and faithfulness in a broken world.

Sweet as Honey (The Honeybee Sisters)

Sweet as Honey (The Honeybee Sisters)

Jennifer Beckstrand

“Sweet as Honey is a warm, wonderful book filled with delightful characters, humor and tenderness. Jennifer Beckstrand writes lovely stories, sure to touch your heart.”–RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author

Smart, kind, and good-hearted, the three Christner girls are affectionately known as The Honeybee Sisters in the beloved Wisconsin Amish community where, under the care of their aunt, they’ve grown into skilled beekeepers–and lovely, sought-after young women. . .

Though she has blossomed into a beauty, Lily Christner doesn’t really believe it. Deep down, she still feels like a lonely, gawky teenager. Maybe that’s why she’s all but promised herself to Paul Glick, the one boy who never teased her in her awkward girlhood–unlike Dan Kanagy, whose creative name-calling left her in tears many a time. Now he’s back in town after two years away–and being surprisingly sweet, suspiciously attentive–and making Lily unsettlingly yet deliciously nervous. It seems Dan wants Lily’s forgiveness–and her heart. But can he convince her–not to mention her protective schwesters and aendi–that despite the past, her future lies with him?…

Lively, determined, and independent, Poppy Christner isn’t about to let some vandal keep making mischief on her family’s farm. She’s been outrunning boys and standing up for picked-on children ever since she was a girl–no matter how much her prideful, arrogant schoolmate Luke Bontrager insulted her. So Poppy certainly doesn’t need his interference now, especially since he’s made it plain he prefers demure, ladylike companions. In fact, if Luke doesn’t stop helping her find the culprit–and growing humble and remorseful–she’ll be forced to notice how handsome his change-of-heart is making him. And that could mean falling in love–maybe for a lifetime…

Autumn's Break (Second Chance Series Book 4)

Autumn’s Break (Second Chance Series Book 4)

Mary E Hanks

Gar Bevere loves his job as a high school English and Drama teacher, but things get ugly when funding for his prestigious arts program is cut. He didn’t mean to grab the principal by the collar—or punch him in the nose—but in the heat of the moment, he did. Now he’s jobless. And his replacement is . . . his own wife! Feeling betrayed—and churning with guilt—he decides what he and Autumn need is a break. A long one.

Autumn never pictured her marriage ending. But when her husband goes through a mid-life crisis at the same time she’s dealing with the disappointment of infertility, her happily-ever-after spirals toward disaster. Gar leaves, and she buries her grief in learning to make killer fudge, her new teaching career, and in carrying his responsibilities—including his reinstated theater program. A friend challenges her to face her marital troubles as if she were fighting a spiritual battle, and when she does, things begin to change, but not necessarily in the way Autumn imagined.

Ty and Winter Williams, marriage-retreat speakers, face the battle of their lives when their nemesis, Randi Simmons, shows up at a conference bent on revenge.

AUTUMN’S BREAK, book four of the Christian romance series, Second Chance, is a story of redemption, forgiveness, and second chances. While each of the stories in this series involves a different couple as the main characters, the secondary story of Ty and Winter—and some of their friends—is an ongoing element of the series. Reading the previous books, especially Summer’s Dream Book 3, before Autumn’s Break, will give the reader a clearer picture of the other characters’ journey.

Winter didn’t plan on seeing Ty Williams ever again. But when she speaks at a conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, a city she’s avoided for ten years, and he shows up, she must face two things.
