Storm Surge: Life Lessons I Learned from Hurricane Ike and How You Can Rise Above Life's Storms

Storm Surge: Life Lessons I Learned from Hurricane Ike and How You Can Rise Above Life’s Storms

Kristen Ethridge

Not everyone will experience the life-changing tides of a hurricane, but everyone will go through storms in their life– and it’s what we learn along the way that shapes who we become in the wake of adversity.

Kristen Ethridge enjoyed life in Galveston, Texas as an entrepreneur and new parent–until Hurricane Ike came to town on September 13, 2008. One of the most destructive hurricanes to ever hit the United States, Ike forced Kristen to rebuild not just her home and business, but her outlook on life as well. Storm Surge is Kristen’s memoir of the events after Hurricane Ike, paired with the Bible verses and Christian living scenarios that helped to construct the life lessons she learned going through the process of recovery. In this book, Kristen walks readers through her own recovery process and the Biblical truths that can bring comfort, inspiration, strength and direction during even the hardest times.

Kristen is the RWA Golden Heart Award-nominated author of the Port Provident inspirational romance series, and Storm Surge will also give readers a behind-the-scenes look at the real-life story that inspired Kristen’s Port Provident: Hurricane Hope books.

Nostalgia: God's Broken Heart

Nostalgia: God’s Broken Heart

Eric Gilmour

God’s heart is broken as His people look to other things for satisfaction, joy and peace. He is not willing to let them go. He relays His anguish through Hosea, the broken hearted prophet. In this prophetic book lies the core speaking of God to the Western world. Wrought with divine nostalgia, God calls His people to solitude with Him that He may whisper into their ears and be their deliverance and all satisfying lover. Though others cried, “injustice” Hosea cries, “You don’t love me anymore.”

Songs for Your Path: A Daily Devotional from the Book of Psalms (Positive Action Devotionals 3)

C.J. Harris

Your life abounds with decisions. Some are simple, others complicated. Some are meaningful, others mundane. And some determine the very direction and legacy of your life. In the midst of all this, God intends that your life be filled with singing, not with fear, doubt, and confusion.

Songs for Your Path guides you on a 180-day journey through the Book of Psalms. You will see the stark contrast between God’s way—the path of righteousness—and the way of the wicked. Through it all your eyes will be pointed again and again to the God of your path and the glory of His majesty.

Written by C.J. Harris.

Produced by Positive Action for Christ, a nonprofit publishing ministry dedicated to helping teachers magnify the majesty of God.

Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes

Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes

Nancy Pearcey

Don’t Think, Just Believe?
That’s the mantra in many circles today–whether the church, the classroom, the campus, or the voting booth.

Time for a Reality Check
Nancy Pearcey, bestselling and critically acclaimed author, offers fresh tools to break free from presumed certainties and test them against reality. In Finding Truth, she explains five powerful principles that penetrate to the core of any worldview–secular or religious–to uncover its deepest motivations and weigh its claims.

A former agnostic, Pearcey demonstrates that a robust Christian worldview matches reality–that it is not only true but attractive, granting higher dignity to the human person than any alternative.

Finding Truth displays Pearcey’s well-earned reputation for clear and cogent writing. She brings themes to life with personal stories and real-world examples. The book includes a study guide shaped by questions from readers, from teens to college professors. It is ideal for individual or group study.

Becoming Myself: Embracing God's Dream of You

Becoming Myself: Embracing God’s Dream of You

Stasi Eldredge

God has dreams—just for you.

Becoming Myself is a hope-filled book for anyone who wonders if her life will ever change—if she will ever change. In Stasi Eldredge’s most intimate book yet, she shares her own struggles with self-worth, weight, and her past as she shows readers how God is faithfully unveiling who we truly are.

Stasi urges you to lay down your past thoughts about yourself and receive God’s incredible dreams for you instead. We cannot heal ourselves. We cannot become ourselves by ourselves. But we are not by ourselves.

The King of love wants to help us become. God desires to restore us—the real us. As he heals our inner life, he calls us to rise to the occasion of our lives. The most important journey any woman can take is the journey into becoming her true self through the love of God.

It’s a beautiful paradox. The more of God’s you become, the more yourself you become—the “self” he had in mind when he thought of you before the creation of the world.

Discover your truest self—the woman God created you to be—in Becoming Myself.

Stasi Eldredge’s heart was captured by God through the Sacred Romance and she has never gotten over it. Or rather, Him. She is the co-author (with her husband John) of the New York Times Bestselling book Captivating and Love & War. Their ministry, Ransomed Heart, has been used by God to transform the lives of men and women all over the world. They make their home in Colorado. The mother of three grown sons who no longer live in her home but take residence forever in her heart, Stasi is a writer and conference speaker passionate about women embracing the value of their heart and life to Jesus Christ and risking everything on that!

Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them)

Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don’t Know About Them)

Bart D. Ehrman

The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus—and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others—are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus—information that scholars know… but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, you’ll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.

The Girl From the Train

The Girl From the Train

Irma Joubert

Six-year-old Gretl Schmidt is on a train bound for Aushwitz. Jakób Kowalski is planting a bomb on the tracks.

As World War II draws to a close, Jakób fights with the Polish resistance against the crushing forces of Germany and Russia. They intend to destroy a German troop transport, but Gretl’s unscheduled train reaches the bomb first.

Gretl is the only survivor. Though spared from the concentration camp, the orphaned German Jew finds herself lost in a country hostile to her people. When Jakób discovers her, guilt and fatherly compassion prompt him to take her in. For three years, the young man and little girl form a bond over the secrets they must hide from his Catholic family.

But she can’t stay with him forever. Jakób sends Gretl to South Africa, where German war orphans are promised bright futures with adoptive Protestant families—so long as Gretl’s Jewish roots, Catholic education, and connections to communist Poland are never discovered.

Separated by continents, politics, religion, language, and years, Jakób and Gretl will likely never see each other again. But the events they have both survived and their belief that the human spirit can triumph over the ravages of war have formed a bond of love that no circumstances can overcome.

And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

Before it’s over, they’ll both know there are painful reasons why crickets cry . . . and that miracles lurk around unexpected corners.

The Curiosity Keeper (A Treasures of Surrey Novel)

Sarah E. Ladd

“It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.”

Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid.

Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession—a ruby called the Bevoy—can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop—and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions.

Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.
