Hungry for God ... Starving for Time - Five-Minute Devotions for Busy Women

Hungry for God … Starving for Time – Five-Minute Devotions for Busy Women

Lori Hatcher

Winner of the Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award

You want to connect with God, but in the craziness of life, you just can’t make it happen. You want practical, biblical answers to situations you face every day, but you don’t have hours to pore over Scripture. You need a resource that answers the questions you’re afraid to ask out loud.

Questions like:

God, this is hopeless. Why even bother to pray?

I can’t believe she said that to me! Why shouldn’t I respond the same way?

God, life is scary. How can I know you’ve got my back?

Deep down, I know I’m selfish, but if I don’t look after myself, who will?

No one appreciates what I do. Why shouldn’t I just quit?

Each of the 31 daily devotions begins with a Facetime question — something you’d ask God if you could see Him face to face — and ends with a biblical answer wrapped in a modern day parable. Like a spiritual power bar, Hungry for God … Starving for Time is packed with enough scriptural nutrition to get you through the day.

Wherever you — are in break rooms, carpool lines — or wherever you can snatch five minutes of quiet reflection, Hungry for God … Starving for Time is the perfect 5-minute devotional resource for the busy you.

At Bluebonnet Lake (Texas Crossroads Book #1): A Novel

Amanda Cabot

Marketing maven Kate Sherwood’s world is fast-paced, challenging, and always changing. The last thing she wants to do is slow down to a crawl at Rainbow’s End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country. But she cannot deny her ailing grandmother’s request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent one glorious week (albeit fifty years ago). There Kate meets Greg Vange, the resort’s handyman. But there’s more to Greg than meets the eye–billions more, in fact, as he recently sold his successful software company and is at the resort in search of what’s next for his life.

Kate isn’t looking for romance, but she can’t deny the sparks of attraction that fly every time she and Greg are together. She even starts to see potential in the rundown resort. Could there be a future there? Or will Kate’s long-sought promotion take her back to the big city?

Amanda Cabot invites readers to step away from the pressures of the daily grind. They might be surprised by what they find at Rainbow’s End.

I Am Hutterite: The Fascinating True Story of a Young Woman's Journey to Reclaim Her Heritage

I Am Hutterite: The Fascinating True Story of a Young Woman’s Journey to Reclaim Her Heritage

Mary-Ann Kirkby

“Your mother and father are running away,” said a voice piercing the warm air. I froze and turned toward home. To a Hutterite, nothing is more shameful than that word, running away, Weglaufen…”

In 1969, Ann-Marie’s parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony in Canada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the family was thrust into a society they did not understand and which knew little of their unique culture. The transition was overwhelming. Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance.

“A superb memoir . . . this has the makings of a prairie classic.”

–AWARD JURY, SASK BOOK AWARDS

“Honest, strong, clear, direct, it opens the door on what has been for so many of us a completely closed world.”

When God Doesn't Fix It: Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn, Truths You Can't Live Without

When God Doesn’t Fix It: Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn, Truths You Can’t Live Without

Laura Story

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT GOOD THINGS CAN COME OUT OF OUR BROKEN DREAMS?

Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.

Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.

“Our family has been ministered to by her vulnerability and willingness to walk in the valley and still say ‘God, I Trust You.’”

— STEVEN CURTIS and MARY BETH CHAPMAN

Grammy Award-Winning Artist and New York Times Bestselling Author

“Laura is one of my heroes when it comes to trusting God. She’s joyful, genuine, and faithful even though her story includes messy chapters. ­This book will be on my nightstand for a long time!”

Frequency: Tune In. Hear God.

Frequency: Tune In. Hear God.

Robert Morris

Hearing God is not something you do. Hearing God is someone you are.

As believers in Jesus Christ, we naturally want to know how we can hear God’s voice. Does God speak? Is He speaking to me? The good news is, yes, He is speaking. And like a radio host broadcasting His voice into the airwaves, God speaks all the time. The question is, are we tuned into the right frequency?

In Frequency, Robert Morris reveals a groundbreaking, Bible-based teaching about hearing God’s voice. God communicates with us in multiple ways, whether through the Bible, through circumstances, or even through a whisper. Robert Morris demonstrates how we can mature from hearing His voice as sheep to hearing it as His friend to even hearing it as a prophet. When we begin to understand the general and specific ways God speaks to us, then we can begin to cultivate a life of deeper connection with our Creator.

In Frequency, readers will…

Gain a better understanding of how to recognize God’s voice
Value the voice of the Lord
Discern the general voice of God from the specific voice of God
Grow in their relationship with the Lord by developing consistent time with His Word
Enjoy drawing closer to their Creator

Is it possible to tune into the frequency of heaven and hear the voice of God? Robert Morris believes so. When we face critical decisions in our lives, we long to hear from God. Yet during those moments, if we’ve not spent regular time with God and His word, we will struggle to hear His voice. However, if we place a high value on hearing God, by setting a specific time to meet with Him each day, then we will not only learn how He has spoken to others in times past but also discover the ways He speaks to us.

Frequency will demystify the process of hearing God and take you to a new level in your faith. God is speaking. Are you listening?

“He who has an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

—Revelation 2:7

Show Them Jesus: Teaching the Gospel to Kids

Show Them Jesus: Teaching the Gospel to Kids

Jack Klumpenhower

Millions of church kids are growing up and deciding to leave the church. They listened attentively in Sunday school, made friends, and seemed committed. But one day, they quit. What happened?

The Bible says we love God because he first loved us. So if we are not primarily teaching our kids about God’s love for us in Christ, we may miss our opportunity to capture their hearts. But what does it look like to teach a gospel-centered lesson?

Show Them Jesus is an instruction manual for teachers of kids and teens written by a lay Bible teacher with 30 years’ experience. With a simple framework and lots of real-life examples, Klumpenhower’s book helps teachers to identify and communicate the heart of the gospel to each child in each lesson.

Conventional wisdom says, “Make class more fun!” Or just, “Make it easier!” But Show Them Jesus challenges the culture of low-stakes, low-expectations teaching and invites teachers to do nothing less than teach and treasure the good news of Jesus in every lesson.

Show Them Jesus’s how-to approach will complement and enrich existing lessons or teaching materials and is appropriate for teachers of children and teens in any setting.

Fathered by God: Learning What Your Dad Could Never Teach You

Fathered by God: Learning What Your Dad Could Never Teach You

John Eldredge

There is a path leading to authentic manhood, cut by men who have gone before us, sons following in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. There are perils along the trail, even disasters?all the more reason to rely on the guidance of a Father who has gone before.

But in an age when true fathers are in short supply, how do you find the path to manhood? How do you steer clear of the dangers?

John Eldredge calls men back to a simple and reassuring truth: God is our Father. In life’s trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood from Beloved Son to Cowboy to Warrior to Lover to King to Sage.

Fathered by God maps out the path of manhood?not more rules, not another list of principles, not formulas, but a sure path men have followed for centuries before us.

Find that path and become the man God sees in you.

Unfaithful: Hope and Healing After Infidelity

Unfaithful: Hope and Healing After Infidelity

Gary Shriver

Statistics show that one in every four marriages is impacted by infidelity. So the odds are pretty good that you or someone you know has experienced the searing pain of marital infidelity. But adultery is not an automatic death sentence for your marriage. You can trust again. You can restore intimacy. You can have a relationship that you will both cherish for a lifetime.

Raw, transparently honest, the Shrivers’ story alone is an inspiration, offering hope and practical strategies for healing. Now this updated and revised edition adds other real-life stories of betrayal and forgiveness, and new information defining adultery, including the destruction of emotional affairs. Some doubt if a marriage can truly heal after the ravages of infidelity. Unfaithful proves you can. It’s not easy … but it can be done. Is it worth it? Yes. And you hold the first step—and hope—in your hand.

Depression: Looking Up from the Stubborn Darkness

Depression: Looking Up from the Stubborn Darkness

Edward T. Welch

Where Is God in the Struggle?

Looking away from despair towards hope can feel risky. What if God doesn’t come through for you? What if you don’t feel instantly better? Instead of offering simple platitudes or unrealistic “cure-all” formulas, Edward T. Welch addresses the complex nature of depression with compassion and insight, applying the rich treasures of the gospel, and giving fresh hope to those who struggle. Originally published as Depression: A Stubborn Darkness—Light for the Path, this new edition is updated with added content.


“I cannot overstate the importance, timeliness, and helpfulness of this book. Ed has given us the wisdom that only comes from a heart shaped by the gospel and a deep compassion for people, generated by the love of Jesus. This is a must read and a must share.”
Scotty Smith, Senior Pastor, Christ Community Church; author of The Reign of Grace and Objects of His Affection

“An all-too-rare combination of gospel understanding, biblical wisdom, personal empathy and long counseling experience shines through these pages. What is most needed is a course of divinely prescribed anti-depressants. Like a skilled spiritual pharmacist, Ed Welch fills that prescription for us.”
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C.; theologian; author of The Christian Life

“I have come to rely on Ed Welch and others at CCEF for guidance and insight in better understanding the issues of the soul that plague many people today. For those who want to address more than just the symptoms of depression, Ed’s counsel is invaluable.”
Bob Lepine, Co-Host, FamilyLife Today

Heart Made Whole: Turning Your Unhealed Pain into Your Greatest Strength

Heart Made Whole: Turning Your Unhealed Pain into Your Greatest Strength

Christa Black Gifford

In Heart Made Whole, Christa Black Gifford shares her own stories of loss, betrayal, and personal tragedy, chronicling clear steps to redemption to help those in pain invite the true Healer into the tangled mess of their broken hearts. Gifford reminds readers that pain is not their enemy, however, unhealed pain can become their greatest foe if it’s not taken to Jesus.

Growing up as a preacher’s kid, Gifford had been submerged in Christian culture for decades when she uncovered the truth–that there were broken parts of her heart that weren’t on friendly terms with the God who lived inside. Through disappointments and traumas, she had learned to guard her heart from God, keeping her angry, entrapped, and disconnected. As struggles and hardships continued, she finally learned to run towards her relationship with God when things got hard, instead of running away from Him like she had in the past. The more that she did this–building her heart’s capacity for intimacy and deep relationship–the more her heart began to heal from the inside-out. She teaches the reader to access the solution that’s already living inside of them–the God who forever made their heart a home.

When trials and tragedy hit our lives in a fallen world, our hearts can get smashed to bits, and we end up putting God on trial and blaming Him for the mess. But Christa helps readers understand that they don’t have to live controlled by their circumstances – or angry with God. Instead, she provides powerful insight and practical steps to turn the painful fire that comes to destroy us into an unexpected friend that can produce our greatest healing.

The condition of the heart determines the condition of life—and the heart can be bound up and healed, producing freedom and abundant life. With personal workbook sections for each chapter Christa helps readers experience steps to turn their pain into the healing and wholeness available to every believer.

Blue Hole Back Home: A Novel

Blue Hole Back Home: A Novel

Joy Jordan-Lake

“Sacred’s not a word I’ve ever much liked. But maybe some things, and some places, just are. And maybe the Blue Hole was one of those things.”

Shelby (nicknamed Turtle) never had any female friends. But when a mysterious girl from Sri Lanka moved to town in the summer of 1979, Turtle invites her to a secret haven: the Blue Hole. Turtle has no idea now much that simple gesture will affect the rest of her life, or the lives of those she loves.

In a time when America was technically well beyond the Civil Rights era, there were those in Turtle’s small Appalachian town who rejected the presence of someone different. And in just one summer—in a collision of love, hate, jealousy, beauty, and a sacred, muddy swimming hole—nothing and everything changed.
