Directed by Purpose: How to Focus on Work That Matters, Ignore Distractions and Manage Your Attention over the Long Haul (Six Simple Steps to Success Book 5)

Michal Stawicki

Find Your ONE THING That Will Relentlessly Guide You

Imagine waking every day and immediately beginning something deeply meaningful. Imagine bypassing or overcoming everything you need to in relentless pursuit of success, until finally you have it.
What if you could find a powerful intrinsic motivator that enabled you to work on your dream every day, regardless of the obstacles fate will inevitably throw in your path?

Four years ago, independent author Michal Stawicki hadn’t published a single book. But since then, thanks to techniques he details in Directed by Purpose, he has written over million words, gathered a few thousand followers, published 15 books and now earns more from writing than 90% of current published authors.

Michal Stawicki decided to begin writing despite suffering depression, feeling out of control, living a life without meaning. He had no authority in any field, either. And he decided to write in English, which to him was a foreign language!

Today, Michal’s success has been featured in Forbes and Business Insider.

In Directed by Purpose he explains how ALL of us can discover a meaning—a purpose—for life. This purpose will then guide us towards achievement and fulfilment, if we follow it.

Michal’s experiences prove you don’t have to be someone special to do extraordinary things.

In this book you will learn:

Why some people are passionate about their work and most are not even satisfied. (Hint: it’s not about the pay)
How to succeed despite day-to-day obligations, exhaustion, pain and self-doubts
How to effortlessly deal with subconscious resistance against your success
Some simple daily habits that help you to clarify and design your life mission
How your purpose creates focus that keeps you on track for the long-term
How to find your big WHY even if you failed multiple times in the past
How you can wake up each day with positive anticipation (even on Mondays!)
How to focus on your long-term vision during everyday work
Why Michal’s methods utilize your brain’s inherent functionality
How to manage your attention, so you will focus on a few most important things
How you can install filters in your brain, so your subconscious will become your worker, not your opponent

The Vintage Wren: Week 4

The Vintage Wren: Week 4

Chautona Havig

The Vintage Wren is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes.

Cassie Wren. Legal assistant. Convenience queen. Thrifter extraordinaire. If there was a “green police” she’d be a fugitive from eco-friendly justice.

But when a friend’s teasing feels like a challenge, Cassie accepts it. The result? One year. Twelve months. Fifty-two weeks. Three hundred sixty-five days–of green.

It seemed simple enough. Cut back on paper plates, plastic forks, and straws. Easy peasy. But when her competitive side wars against her desire for convenience, Cassie finds it’s not so easy to be “eco-friendly” and “Cassie-friendly.”

Week 4 She planned on one goal for the year–prove she could be as eco-conscious as any “Crunchy” gal, but her goals of blogging and opening her own business, on the other hand, were supposed to be tabled for a year. So much for that idea!

Cassie’s fourth week–metal. Unfortunately, her car decided to sacrifice itself for the good of the planet. Its timing couldn’t be more perfect or worse. And with a houseful of supplies that come in neat metal packaging, Cassie isn’t quite sure what she’ll do.

A blog commenter is starting to annoy her, and something is up with a new acquaintance. But, in the middle of all this, Think helps keep her grounded.

Say hi to old friends from HearthLand and get a tiny glimpse of another, totally unexpected character!

Compassion without Compromise: How the Gospel Frees Us to Love Our Gay Friends Without Losing the Truth

Compassion without Compromise: How the Gospel Frees Us to Love Our Gay Friends Without Losing the Truth

Adam T. Barr

Loving, Biblical Answers on Homosexuality

In the next year at least one of these things will happen in your life:
• A family member will come out of the closet and expect you to be okay with it.
• Your elementary-age child’s curriculum will discuss LGBT families.
• Your company will talk about building a tolerant workplace for LGBT co-workers.
• Your college-age child will tell you your view on homosexuality is bigoted.

Are you ready?

In their role as pastors, Adam Barr and Ron Citlau have seen how this issue can tear apart families, friendships, and even churches. In this book they combine biblical answers with practical, real-world advice on how to think about and discuss this issue with those you care about. They also tell the story of Ron’s personal journey from same-sex attraction and sexual brokenness to healing.

Truth does not preclude kindness–and a good dose of humility is necessary to love our neighbors. With sensitivity and winsomeness, this book will offer an honest but inviting message to readers: We are all in need of the healing that can only come from the truth of the gospel.

Visit CompassionWithoutCompromise.com for more information.

“I can’t imagine any Christian not being helped by this book. . . . If you are looking for a resource that will help you think about the issue of homosexuality with unflinching truth and with sincere grace, this is a great place to start.”–from the Foreword by Kevin DeYoung

“These pastors/authors equip us to love persons with same-sex attraction well. Born of life in the real world, their efforts are profound yet conveyed with a light touch that makes a tough subject an enjoyable read.”–Andrew Comiskey, founder/executive director, Desert Stream/Living Waters Ministries

“Compassion Without Compromise seeks to be candid help on a difficult topic: the complex variations of modern sexual brokenness. You may cheer one page and jeer another. But, having heard the mind of two pastors who wrestle honestly with sexual issues every day, at least you will find help to make up your own mind.”–Dr. Todd Hunter, Anglican bishop, pastor of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, and author of Our Favorite Sins

“Both the church and culture are being ripped apart by the homosexuality issue. Adam and Ron have given us a most important discussion of the issue that is biblical, personal, and practical. I know of no other work that encompasses all three approaches.”–Charles Simpson, author, Bible teacher, motivational speaker, and pastor

The Parent Adventure: Preparing Your Children for a Lifetime with God

The Parent Adventure: Preparing Your Children for a Lifetime with God

Selma Wilson

Informed by research that reveals destructive parenting patterns are being handed down through most American families (including Christian households), The Parent Adventure looks to the church to help break this cycle and teach moms and dads how to prepare their kids for a lifetime with God.

The problem starts when parents raise children based on their personal experiences growing up instead of using the Bible as the timeless, authoritative guide. Although seemingly painful at first, the parental attitude of “letting go” must begin intentionally at birth, keeping in mind that each child’s life is more about knowing God than anything else. With this outlook established, the future-focused mom and dad will move more joyfully through each stage in the adventure of parenting as detailed in the book.

Knowing God has a lifelong plan for each family member, parents and kids will grow closer to each other just as sure as they will grow closer to God.

The Shaping of Things to Come: Innovation and Mission for the 21st-Century Church

The Shaping of Things to Come: Innovation and Mission for the 21st-Century Church

Michael Frost

If ever there was a time for an innovative missionary effort in the West, it is now.

The great paradox of our age is that while the need for the gospel has seldom been greater, the relevance of the church to the culture at large has seldom been less. With keen insight, The Shaping of Things to Come explores why the church needs to rebuild itself from the bottom up, presenting a clear understanding of how the church can change to face the unique challenges of the twenty-first century. Now thoroughly revised and updated with current case studies, this missional classic assesses the state of the church–and is still very much able to show us what lies ahead.

“The Shaping of Things to Come . . . calls us forward to a grander view of the church-in-mission than the one to which we have become all too accustomed. I am personally grateful for this new edition.”–Mark Batterson, lead pastor, National Community Church; author, The Circle Maker

“Not often does a title of a book prophesy itself. But The Shaping of Things to Come has shaped things to come in the global Christian world like perhaps no one book published in the past decade. It truly is a ‘classic,’ and this new edition promises to continue its tradition of shaking and shaping.”–Leonard Sweet, author; professor, Drew University and George Fox University

“One of those rare books that . . . gets deep into your psyche and alters your perspective on what it means to be the church today, what it means to follow Jesus on his adventurous mission.”–Dan Kimball, author, They Like Jesus but Not the Church

“As we look at the depth and breadth of the missional movement, I continually direct people back to The Shaping of Things to Come. Things have definitely shaped around the concepts of this book, and it continues to be a plumbline for missional thought leadership and practice.”–Hugh Halter, author, The Tangible Kingdom and Sacrilege

Michael Frost is the founding director of the Tinsley Institute, a mission study center at Morling College in Sydney, Australia. He is the author of more than a dozen books, including Exiles and The Road to Missional. He lives in Sydney.

Alan Hirsch is founding director of Forge Mission Training Network and leader of Future Travelers. He is the author of numerous books, including The Forgotten Ways and Untamed. Alan lives in Los Angeles.

5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son

5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son

Vicki Courtney

From the cradle to college, tell your sons the truth about life before they believe the culture’s lies.

For parents with boys newborn to eighteen, 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son will be as much a part of the boyhood journey as those Legos you’re still finding under the sofa cushions and the garage full of sports equipment. Award-winning youth culture commentator Vicki Courtney helps moms and dads pinpoint and prepare the discussions that should be ongoing in a boy’s formative years.

Fully addressing the dynamic social and spiritual issues and other influencers at hand, several chapters are written for each of the conversations, which are:

1. Don’t define manhood by the culture’s wimpy standards; it’s okay to be a man!

2. What you don’t learn to conquer may become your master.

3. Not everyone’s doing it! (And other naked truths about sex you won’t hear in the locker room.)

4. Boyhood is only for a season. P.S. It’s time to grow up!

5. Godly men are in short supply-dare to become one!

The book also offers invaluable tips on having these conversations across the various stages of development: five and under, six to eleven, and twelve and up.

Spring for Susannah

Spring for Susannah

Catherine Richmond

Hundreds of miles from home, Susannah faces an uncertain future as a mail-order bride on the untamed Dakota prairie.

When her parents die suddenly, and no suitors call, Susannah resigns herself to the only option available: becoming a mail-order bride. Agreeing to marry her pastor’s brother, Jesse, Susannah leaves the only home she’s ever known for the untamed frontier of the Dakota Territory.

Her new husband is more loving and patient with her than she believes she deserves. Still, there is also a wildness to him that mirrors the wilderness surrounding them. And Susannah finds herself constantly on edge. But Jesse’s confidence in her—and his faith in God’s perfect plan—slowly begin to chip away at the wall she hides behind.

When she miscarries in the brutal Dakota winter, Susannah’s fledgling faith in herself and in God begins to crumble. Still, Jesse’s love is unwavering. Just when it seems like winter will never end, Susannah finally sees the first tentative evidence of spring. And with it, the realization that more than the landscape has changed.

She looks to the future with a renewed heart. Yet in her wildest dreams, she couldn’t predict all that awaits her.
