A Taste of Hot Apple Cider: Stories to Encourage and Inspire (Powerful Stories of Faith, Hope, and Love Book 1)

N. J. Lindquist

Pull up a nice, warm, cozy chair and enjoy some Hot Apple Cider with us.

Move in closer. That’s it. We’ll all share our stories together, like a group of close friends. Stories of heartbreak and redemption—trouble and overcoming—questioning our faith and embracing it—and, most of all, finding hope at the end of every path.

There’s just nothing like a circle of warm friends to share life with. All 15 of us will take turns opening up our hearts to you—sharing little pieces of ourselves. Come join us.

We’ll even include discussion questions so you can reflect on our stories or explore the themes with a group.

Our bigger Hot Apple Cider anthologies, which have won a number of awards,have nearly 90,000 print copies in circulation. They’re also now available as ebooks with accompanying Discussion Guides.

“In the tradition of Chicken Soup for the Soul, these delightful readings are like a cozy cup of hot cider. Settle in for a moment of warmth and reflection.” –BRIAN C. STILLER, Global Ambassador for the World Evangelical Alliance

“Sometimes all you need is a reminder that there is something good in the world.” –MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

In the foreword, British Columbia author and speaker Grace Fox says, “Through poems, fiction, and nonfiction alike, [the writers] remind readers that the struggles we face are common to everyone. Their honest descriptions of wrestling with cancer, caring for and losing aging parents, dealing with a spouse’s dementia, moving beyond one’s fear to tell neighbours about Jesus, and more, show us that hope is very much alive.”

A Life of Balance

A Life of Balance

K.P. Yohannan

Balance: The Key to Life

Remember learning how to ride a bike? The hardest part was learning how to stay balanced. Once you mastered that, you were ready to go anywhere.

The same is true of life, especially for those of us who sincerely seek to follow Jesus Christ. All truth has two sides, and balanced attention to both sides of the coin is necessary to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Otherwise, our passion for the Lord can quickly turn into fanaticism and our ministry will eventually fade away.

In this short booklet, K.P. Yohannan discusses Biblical balance in 11 key areas of life, such as

*Discipline and Freedom
*Faith and Common Sense
*Love and Doctrine
*Zeal and Wisdom

Learn how to develop the balance which will keep your life and ministry healthy and honoring God.

The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World's Most Beloved Neighbor

The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World’s Most Beloved Neighbor

Amy Hollingsworth

Tom Brokaw of NBC Nightly News once said of the American icon Fred Rogers, “Mister Rogers was an ordained minister, but he never talked about God on his program. He didn’t need to.”

Eight years before his death, Fred Rogers met author, educator, and speaker Amy Hollingsworth. What started as a television interview turned into a wonderful friendship spanning dozens of letters detailing the driving force behind this gentle man of extraordinary influence. Educator? Philosopher? Psychologist? Minister? Here is an intimate portrait of the real Mister Rogers.

The Simple Faith of Mr. Rogers focuses on Mr. Rogers’ spiritual legacy, but it is much more than that. It shows us a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, “preached the gospel at all times; when necessary he used words.”

Flight 259: A Contemporary Christian Romance Novel (The Hope Series Book 1)

Flight 259: A Contemporary Christian Romance Novel (The Hope Series Book 1)

Staci Stallings

Life has not been fair to Jenna Davis. After losing everything she considered her world three years ago, her only hope has been holding on and trying to survive. When she finally decides she must find a way to go on with life, she boards a plane destined to visit a friend across the country. But she hadn’t counted on meeting a handsome stranger and his young son on the flight, nor could she have prepared herself for what life would throw at her next. Can Jenna find love again after tragedy strikes or is she destined to go from one tragedy to another forever?

Scott Browning was devastated when his marriage broke up. With his young son, Lane, he is learning to pick up the pieces and go on with life. On his way home from a visit to his parents, Scott meets a young woman who will change everything, just before his own life is thrown into question. Most couples think about love at first sight. Could this one be love at first death?

*~*

“Staci Stallings writes Christian romance at its finest!” A compelling story that will leave you asking, “Why am I here?” and “What is the point of suffering and trials?” Life, death, danger, forgiveness, mercy, grace, and most of all hope, “Flight 259” and its sequel “A Time for Love” give you a glimpse into not just this life but what is to come. Maybe, the story says, the trials of life are designed to teach us to hope in God and to hold on for second chances we never knew might come our way.

EXCERPT

The emergency lights in the cabin flickered even though most of the violent shuttering of the wounded aircraft had subsided. Worried voices and screams of pain intermittently pierced the ominous semi-darkness. Oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling, and Jenna grabbed for hers and then helped Lane with his. When she looked over to Scott, his face was a ghastly white, and with one look, she knew it was more than fear.

“Are you okay?” she yelled through her mask as she saw him struggling to get his own on. “Here!” She reached over and helped him put the mask on. Between them, Lane began screaming when he saw Scott with the mask on his face. “No, shhh, honey. Shhh.” Jenna pulled him to her, soothing and rubbing Lane’s arm. “It’s okay. It’s going to be okay.”
However, the other cries in the plane and the convulsions of the plane itself were wreaking havoc on everyone’s nerves, and Lane was no different.

“Listen,” she said willing her voice to be calm, and then without her knowing how or why, the words and melody just came. “Amazing Grace how sweet the sound.” It was the song her father had taught her many years before, and somehow the words flowed through her now with no effort at all. Her voice sounded much stronger and far calmer than she felt, but she knew that somehow she had to get Lane to calm down. She had no other choice.

The chaos around them mounted as the plane nose-dived forward, righted itself, and then pitched forward again. Each pitch was like being thrown headlong off a cliff. Without questioning it, Jenna reached across Lane and held him against the seat. As the plane dipped again, she had the vague thought that this was her worst nightmare come true, but she pushed even that observation away. She had to remain focused if she wanted to make it out of this alive…
