The Renewing of the Mind Project: Going to God for Help with Your Habits, Goals, and Emotions

Barb Raveling

Do you ever feel like you’ll never change? Maybe you’ve been struggling with the same sin for years. Or you’re stuck in the grip of a negative emotion such as worry, insecurity, or anger. Or you’ve been trying to start a habit or pursue a goal, but it’s not happening. You feel like you’ll never change.

But here’s the truth: God is powerful and He wants to help you. This book is all about going to God for help with transformation. Paul tells us in Romans 12:2 that we’re transformed by the renewing of the mind. In The Renewing of the Mind Project you’ll choose a project—something you’d really like to change—and apply Romans 12:2 to that project. Here are a few of the things you’ll be learning while you work on your project:
How to renew your mind on a practical, day-by-day basis.

How to pray Scripture, using the 250+ verses in this book.

How to visit with God about your project, using the 48 sets of questions in this book.

How to truth journal.

As you work with God on your project, you’ll not only gain victory in that area of your life, you’ll also grow closer to God and more dependent on Him. And what could be better than that?

Tracy Higley

You want to make a difference in the world and live a life of impact.

But what if you’re working hard on all the wrong things?

Impactivity will take you deep into discovering God’s call for your life – the dream He’s placed within you and the unique adventure He’s calling you to live.

A life of Impactivity is more than mere productivity, it’s a busy life of purpose that is also balanced and joyful.

Whether you’re struggling to know what’s next for you, or trying to figure out how to do it all without burning out, Impactivity will both teach and inspire you to discover the dream that is calling, and to pursue it with passion, balance, and joy.

LEARN FROM SOMEONE WITH EXPERIENCE…

Tracy Higley, bestselling author and successful entrepreneur, has been where you are. After decades of keeping up with publishing contracts, four kids, church ministries and grad school, all the while running a million-dollar retail business, Tracy “crashed and burned.”And learned. The answer did not come from changing her fundamental personality of achiever, but by taking those strengths and fitting them into a structure that explodes productivity while staying balanced, healthy and joyful.

“Inspiring, challenging, and freeing. The best book for Christian entrepreneurs I’ve ever read.”

~Lacy Williams, USA Today bestselling author and small business owner

“Tracy Higley is John Maxwell for women! Empowering, practical and inspiring, Impactivity was exactly what I needed to help focus my goals, my dreams and my daily to-do list into a life of Impactivity. If you want to stop running in circles and start moving forward to make an impact on your world–and love doing it–this series is exactly what you need.” M

~Susan May Warren, best-selling novelist and founder of My Book Therapy, a craft and coaching community for novelists

“I’m pretty sure Tracy Higley cut out a picture of me, stuck it on her computer monitor, and wrote Impactivity just for over-achieving me… This guide has given me much to think about in terms of my impact on this world, and my health in the midst that pursuit.”

~Mary DeMuth, author of Worth Living

The Brickmaker's Bride (Refined by Love Book #1)

The Brickmaker’s Bride (Refined by Love Book #1)

Judith Miller

In the clay-rich hills of the newly founded state of West Virginia, two families tentatively come together to rebuild a war-torn brickmaking business.

Ewan McKay has immigrated to West Virginia with his aunt and uncle, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial help. Uncle Hugh purchases a brickmaking operation from a Civil War widow and her daughter, and it’s Ewan’s job to get the company up and running again.

Ewan seeks help from Laura, the former owner’s daughter, and he quickly feels a connection with her, but she’s being courted by another man–a lawyer with far more social clout and money than Ewan. Resolving that he’ll make the brickworks enough of a success that he can become a partner in the business and be able to afford to bring his sisters over from Ireland, Ewan pours all his energy into the new job.

But when Hugh signs a bad business deal, all Ewan’s hard work is put in jeopardy. As his hopes for the future crumble, Laura reveals something surprising. Can she help him save the brickworks, and will Ewan finally get a shot at winning her heart?

The Solas of the Reformation: The Core Doctrines of Protestantism

The Solas of the Reformation: The Core Doctrines of Protestantism

Nathan Brummel

Martin Luther used a number of Latin mottos to express the core doctrines of the Protestant Reformation. All historic and confessional Protestants confess the basic tenets of Sola Scriptura, Solus Christus, Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, and Soli Deo Gloria. The author examines and defends each one of these mottos in turn as important and biblical. It is fitting that children of the Reformation celebrate the core doctrines of Protestantism as they anticipate and celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017.

In Search of Work-Life Balance: A Small Book with a Faith-Based Approach to a Large Problem

In Search of Work-Life Balance: A Small Book with a Faith-Based Approach to a Large Problem

Russell Clayton

If only I could spend more time at home and (much) less time at work.
If only I knew what to do to make that change.
If only I could achieve that elusive goal of work-life balance.

In the spare moments of calm and quiet before your head hits the pillow, do thoughts like these cross your mind? Do you long to be at home when you’re working overtime for the eighth week in a row? Does your work pull you away from quality time with your spouse or kids, even when you’re home? When you’re home, are you really there?

Forty percent of Americans work more than fifty hours per week. And many fall into the trap of working longer so that we might be able to provide more for our families. But is sacrificing our one finite resource—time—worth the cost?

In Search of Work-Life Balance presents a biblically based, practical, and achievable way forward for anyone who’s wrestling to find a functional balance between the necessity of work and the desire to spend time with those who matter the most.

“Turn to Appearances, page 31.” Without more than a second’s time, she continued without reading her book. “And so you found that poor room dull,/Dark, hardly to your taste, my dear?/Its features seemed unbeautiful;/But this I know—‘twas there, not here,/You plighted troth to me, the word/Which—ask that poor room how it heard.

“And this rich room obtains your praise/Unqualified—so bright, so fair,/So all whereat perfection stays?/Aye, but remember—here, not there,/The other word was spoken!—Ask/This rich room how you dropped the mask!

“Browning uses the metaphor of a house again in this one, a structure of some kind with different rooms. And what’s the story with this house?”

“The guy likes one room but not the other.”

Quiet depth filled her eyes. “Why?” She turned, and her gaze caught a raised hand. “Mr. Hansen?”

“Because in one room he was trying to be something he wasn’t, and in the other, he dropped the mask.”

“And the first room, where he was wearing the mask was…?”

“Unbeautiful,” Susana said. “Dull and dark.”

Ms. Forester seemed lost in the thought. “And the second room? What was it like?”

“Unqualified,” someone down front said, “so bright, so fair.”

“He’s saying the same thing in both poems, is he not?” She turned on the toe of her boot and gazed at the whole of her students. “Be who you are. Drop the mask. Be brave enough to show the world, and far from losing yourself and being criticized like a finite clod, you may be immortalized like Shakespeare, or at the very least, the room you’re standing in might just seem a little brighter than the one where you were before.” Her attention jumped up to the clock. “Oh, look at the time. Be sure to read the last selections for Thursday’s class. See you then.”

It was like snapping awake from a dream and not being at all able to shake it. Jonathon stood as the others did as well. His mind spun trying to think of something, some reason that could keep him here with her for one more minute. He checked his things, gathering them slowly, watching her down front the whole time. One of the other students stepped up to her, and she bent to listen. What could he ask her? What question would be good enough to go to the front?
