Homestands (Chicago Wind Book 1)

Sally Bradley

A Christian reconciliation romance from USA Today bestselling author Sally Bradley

When baseball star Mike Connor stumbles across his ex-wife six years after their divorce, he’s stunned to find that she’s the mother of a kindergartner who wears his jersey. And shares his last name.

The last thing Meg Connor wants is to be around Mike. After all, he was the one who hurt and abandoned her. But she can’t deny him—or their son—time together to build a relationship, which means Mike is around too often, reminding her of why she fell in love with him so long ago. If only she could forget their past… The painful and the good.

Between their guilt and closely held hurts, Meg and Mike struggle against each other, their feelings, and God as they fight their own desires for the future, a future that might never happen when the past that tore them apart collides with their present.

EXCERPT

She glanced over her shoulder at him, face pinched. “Go outside with Terrell,” she said, scrubbing a plate harder than seemed necessary. “I’ll clean up.”

“I told him I’d be out in a bit.” Mike set the dishes next to the sink. He leaned backward against the counter. “I missed you last night.”

She kept quiet, intent on the dirty dishes.

“They put me at a table with some Bears players. Nice guys. Big, though. The mayor was at the next table over. My friend Travis got stuck with a bunch of highbrows, but knowing him, he probably enjoyed it.”

She dropped silverware into the water, the clatter a slap to his dying patience.

“Felt like I talked to everybody there. People stopped by my table all night.” He gave her a sideways glance, but she didn’t seem to be listening. “Of course, I would have told them to get lost if you’d been there.”

Still no reaction.

“You can’t be mad at me for this, Meg. I wanted to take you. It stunk going with someone else.”

“Didn’t look like it,” she snapped.

This woman… “I paid for two tickets. I had to take someone. So stop making judgments based on what you think you’ve seen.”

She faced him, her jaw clenched, anger blazing in her eyes. “What I think I’ve seen? What about what I know happened?”

“I’m not talking about the past, Meg! I’m talking about last night. You saw… what? Half a second of us with our hands together? I wasn’t holding her hand. She held mine, and I got out of it as fast as I could.”

This wasn’t worth it. This was not worth it. If only he liked Sara; then he’d call her back like she wanted.

But he didn’t like her.

Not that he liked Meg at the moment, either. He bit down on his tongue and forced himself to stay. To wait for her to speak.

She rinsed one dish after another, the dishwasher slowly filling.

She was gonna drive him crazy.

He leaned back to catch her eye and force her to acknowledge him.

Her cheeks looked damp.

“Are you crying?”

“No.” She swiped her cheeks with her wrist. “I splashed water on my face.”

He’d never meant to hurt her. At least, not this time. Why were they suddenly so bad for each other? “Meg, you can’t jump to conclusions.” He reached for her shoulder.

She backed away, sudsy hands in front of her. “Don’t touch me,” she spat, tear tracks continuing down her face.

His temper snapped. “Believe me. It’s not even tempting right now.”

Her eyes hardened. Flickered.

Good.

He swallowed. No, not good. He’d just hurt her worse.

But she’d pushed him to it. What woman turned a guy down, then got upset when he took someone else? Did Meg not get her own insanity?

She returned to the sink. “Go outside with Terrell.”

Might as well. “I’m taking him with me. He can play on the field, hit in the batting cage. A kind of graduation present. You good with that?” Not that he cared. He was taking Terrell.

She shrugged. “Whatever, Mike. Just go.”

He headed for the back yard. How had this week gone so wrong?

Sins We Accept

Sins We Accept

Jerry Bridges

Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of our society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? In this booklet adapted from Jerry Bridges’ bestselling book Respectable Sins, Jerry returns to his trademark theme of holiness and addresses these more subtle sins (often considered acceptable) and how to deal with them through the remedy of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sins such as jealousy, anger, pride, judgmentalism, and unthankfulness are addressed in this booklet. Jerry writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishment but from the trenches of his own battles with sin. In his admonitions, Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins.

Rest Assured: A Recovery Plan for Weary Souls

Rest Assured: A Recovery Plan for Weary Souls

Vicki Courtney

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28

Women are overcommitted, overconnected, overburdened, and overwhelmed. Their lives are full, but oddly, their souls are empty. They are aching for a bold challenge—one that will bring rest to their longing souls. Rest Assured is for the daring women who truly want to disrupt their current patterns and see lasting change.

Divided into two parts, Rest Assured offers not just an intervention:

The Badge of Busyness
The Exhausting Pursuit of Happiness
Tethered Souls
Worried Sick

But also a recovery plan:

Prioritize the One Thing Needed: Time for God
Create Room to Breathe: Time for Solitude
Give Yourself a Break: Time for Leisure
Pay It Forward: Time for Others

If the soul is weary, it’s time for an intervention. Rest Assured is not a quick fix, but rather a bold challenge that aids women in identifying the negative patterns that prevent them from experiencing rest in their souls. Most importantly, it will give them the tools needed to break the cycle.

All Things New

Lynn Austin

New Historical Novel from 7-Time Christy Award Winner!

In the aftermath of the Civil War, Josephine Weatherly and her mother, Eugenia, struggle to pick up the pieces of their lives when they return to their Virginia plantation. But the bitter realities of life after the war cannot be denied: their home and land are but shells of their previous grandeur; death has claimed her father and brother; and her remaining brother, Daniel, has returned home bitter and broken. The privileged childhood Josephine enjoyed now seems like a long-ago dream. And the God who failed to answer any of her prayers during the war is lost to her as well.

Josephine soon realizes that life is now a matter of daily survival–and recognizes that Lizzie, as one of the few remaining servants, is the one she must rely on to teach her all she needs to know. Josephine’s mother, too, vows to rebuild White Oak…but a bitter hatred fuels her.

With skill and emotion, Lynn Austin brings to life the difficult years of the Reconstruction era by interweaving the stories of three women–daughter, mother, and freed slave–in a riveting tale.
