Double Vision - Seeing God In Everyday Life Through Devotions and Poetry

Double Vision – Seeing God In Everyday Life Through Devotions and Poetry

Frances Gregory Pasch

Crumpled paper towels. Embers in a wood stove. A crowded bird feeder. Can God speak to us through such commonplace objects? Can we catch a glimpse of Him in the midst of our routine activities?

Double Vision: Seeing God in Everyday Life Through Devotions and Poetry contains thirty devotions, each paired with a poem on the same subject—a double eye-opener. Viewing the same spiritual truth two ways will help you see daily life from an eternal perspective. Pasch’s simple yet thought-provoking analogies will prompt you to take a second look at the most ordinary experience and see God’s hand at work.

Standing Strong: A Christian Novel

Standing Strong: A Christian Novel

Summer Lee

This is a faith based novel. It is, in fact, a combination of three novels. We have four women, four friends, and four very different lives that intertwine through time and space…each with her own unique way of drawing on the power of God.These stories are based on people I have been connected to during my walk in life.

In STANDING STRONG, the faith and friendship of four young women is tested when they face hard decisions that will change their lives forever. Love and romance is never easy, especially for Christian friends who struggle to live spiritual lives when real-life issues conflict with everything that they have ever believed is right.

As Susie struggles with a decision to have an abortion that may tear apart her heart and harm her physically, Jennie struggles to keep a secret promise to return to spiritual virginity that threatens her developing love relationship. As each young woman tries to find herself, her happiness, and her calling, they each discover that only one thing remains true: God’s love.

Elizabeth has had a lot of emotional pain in her life. She leaves Colorado behind and finds a safe place in a Southern California Christian mission station that ministers to the downtrodden of the community. A strong Christian, she still struggles with her painful past, which followed her to Southern California as a rejected guy from her high school days stalks her and taunts her for being overweight―worse, he does it in front of the handsome Pastor Sam.

Humiliated and downcast at the names she is called, and at her past history revealed to Sam, she struggles to lose weight with desperate measures. Pastor Sam struggles to understand why it is so important to her. Luckily, she finds a Christian counselor who helps others overcome their addictions. Together with some women of the neighborhood, they must unravel their pasts to heal their futures.

Annie Duncan leaves her abusive boyfriend and unsavory job. She hops on a plane to anywhere, just to get away from her past. The next plane is headed for Southern California and in the seat next to her is Joseph Jacobs, a hunky modern-day missionary who is about to change her life with wisdom, promises from the Bible, and compassion.

The man of her dreams is a hero of Biblical proportions and strength. To her surprise, he’s never been intimate with anyone. But she loves him passionately. How can a woman with a past show her love to a man who has kept himself pure for a lifetime while he searches for his God-given true love? It’s going to take a miracle for these two to come together…and to find true love.

The Conviction to Lead: 25 Principles for Leadership That Matters

The Conviction to Lead: 25 Principles for Leadership That Matters

Albert Mohler

Leadership Principles from a Renowned Agent of Change

Cultures and organizations do not change without strong leadership. While many leadership books focus on management or
administration, the central focus of The Conviction to Lead is on changing minds.

Dr. Mohler was the driving force behind the transformation of Southern Seminary from a liberal institution of waning influence to a
thriving evangelical seminary at the heart of the Southern Baptist Convention. Since then he has been one of the most prominent voices in evangelicalism, fighting for Christian principles and challenging secular culture.

Using his own experiences and examples from history, Dr. Mohler demonstrates that real leadership is a transferring of conviction to others, affecting their actions, motivations, intuition, and commitment. This practical guide walks the reader through what a leader needs to know, do, and be in order to affect change.

Be Heroic (Minor Prophets): Demonstrating Bravery by Your Walk

Warren W. Wiersbe

We all admire the hero. That person who’s celebrated for accomplishing big things in the face of even bigger odds. Yet heroes aren’t defined by their circumstances, but by their choices.

Based on the books of Ezra, Haggai, and Zechariah, this study examines three unsung heroes of the Bible who can inspire us today.

Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” commentary series, BE Heroic has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe shares small ways we can make a big impact. Because when it’s all about being a servant, we all have what it takes to be a hero.

A Friend in Me: How to Be a Safe Haven for Other Women

Pamela Havey Lau

Young women long for relational connection with women further ahead of them on the journey. Yet, without realizing it, many of us tend to distance ourselves from those in younger generations. Can we really have close relationships with women who have different thoughts on church, different experiences with family, and different ways of talking about God? Where do we start?

In A Friend in Me, Pam Lau shows you how to be a safe place for the younger women in your life. She offers five patterns women need to internalize and practice for initiating relationships and talking about issues such as faith, forgiveness, sexuality, and vocation. Most significantly, she reminds you that there doesn’t need to be a divide between generations of women. Together, we can have a global impact—and experience a deeper faith than we’ve ever known.

Pam Lau is the author of Soul Strength and numerous articles for such publications as Christian Scholar’s Review and Christianity Today. She has taught writing at George Fox University and speaks around the country at conferences and retreats.

Second Chance Love

Second Chance Love

Pamela S. Meyers

Chicago lawyer Sydney Knight and Texas bull rider Jace McGowan have nothing in common but everything to lose when they are thrust together during a weekend rodeo in rural Illinois. Neither one of them would have imagined two years ago that the deep attraction they sensed during a day-long outing would resurface when Sydney’s boss assigns her to Jace’s legal case.

Sydney has been through a world of hurt since losing her dad when she was sixteen, then being dumped the morning of her wedding. She’s sworn off romance and instead devotes her time toward a partnership in her father’s law office.

Jace has found faith in God and wants out of his sponsor contract with a risqué restaurant chain that requires him to pose with scantily-clad women. He’s about to bail on the contract and pay steep penalties—something he can ill afford, given that his deceased father left the family with unpaid taxes.

Sydney is determined she’ll get Jace out of his contract and return to Chicago with her heart intact, but Jace is just as determined to help her see they’re meant to be together. Can a city girl with roots deep in Chicago and a bull-riding rancher with roots deep in Texas give themselves a second chance at love?

Unintended Target (Unintended Series Book 1)

D.L. Wood

Travel photojournalist Chloe McConnaughey thought she understood her brother Tate—a brilliant programmer willing to compromise anything to get ahead. She just didn’t know that included her.
When Tate dies unexpectedly, Chloe copes by taking an assignment in the Caribbean where she meets Jack, a charming Manhattan escapee who almost has her believing life could turn around. But the illusion is shattered when a series of bizarre incidents leaves them framed for murder and running from killers convinced that Chloe is the key to questions Tate left behind. Suddenly Jack’s timely entrance into her life seems more than coincidental, but with nowhere else to turn, Chloe must trust this man who is not only charming, but also dangerous, and much better at evading capture than he should be. Strained to the breaking point by a life consistently marked by tragedy, Chloe fights a sense of hopelessness, confronting the age-old question: if it’s not all random—if God does exist—why would He allow bad things to happen to good people?
Hunted from the tiny island of St. Gideon all the way to Miami, Chloe and Jack desperately search for the evidence that will prove their innocence and eliminate them as targets of the shadowy conspiracy that will stop at nothing to make its problems go away.
