Season Changes (Amish Romance) (Amish Summer Romance Series Book 4)

Season Changes (Amish Romance) (Amish Summer Romance Series Book 4)

Esther Weaver

Emily Sutter was a young girl with a lot of responsibility. But it wasn’t the kind of responsibility she expected at seventeen. Instead of planning her wedding, Emily was living with her grandmother on her farm. The work was hard and Emily could see no way of having a life of her own.

But Emily’s grandmother breaks her leg in a freak accident and with no free Amish farmhands, they have to look outside their community for help. Emily is cautious about the Englischers. She has never had any interest in their ways. She certainly isn’t interested in finding love.

Josh Hutchins has lived in a group home but as he’s almost eighteen, he knows that any day, he’ll be asked to leave. Bored of his cashier job in a grocery store, he turns up at an Amish farm that is looking for help. He knows nothing of the Amish ways but the old woman and her granddaughter are pleasant. He notices how pretty Emily is for a young woman who wears no make-up, her natural beauty shining through.

When the moment arrives and Josh is told he must leave the group home, he freaks out. He doesn’t know what to do because for the first time in his life, he is thinking about someone else, Emily. She talks about Amish life so lyrically that he feels drawn to their ways.

Read on as Gott seems to answer all their prayers…

Jesus: A Pilgrimage

Jesus: A Pilgrimage

James Martin

James Martin, SJ, gifted storyteller, editor at large of America magazine, popular media commentator, and New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, brings the Gospels to life in Jesus: A Pilgrimage, and invites believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer and travel.

Combining the fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual insights about the Christ of faith, Father Martin recreates the world of first-century Galilee and Judea to usher you into Jesus’s life and times and show readers how Jesus speaks to us today. Martin also brings together the most up-to-date Scripture scholarship, wise spiritual reflections, and lighthearted stories about traveling through the Holy Land with a fellow (and funny) Jesuit, visiting important sites in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.

The person at the heart of the Gospels can seem impossibly distant. Stories about his astonishing life and ministry—clever parables that upended everyone’s expectations, incredible healings that convinced even skeptics, nature miracles that dazzled the dumbstruck disciples—can seem far removed from our own daily lives, hard to understand, and at times irrelevant. But in Jesus you will come to know him as Father Martin knows him: Messiah and Savior, as well as friend and brother.

Less Fret, More Faith: An 11-Week Action Plan to Overcome Anxiety

Less Fret, More Faith: An 11-Week Action Plan to Overcome Anxiety

Max Lucado

A pass-along companion to Anxious for Nothing that features an 11-week plan to overcome anxiety.

According to one research program, anxiety-related issues are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men. Stress-related ailments cost the nation $300 billion every year in medical bills and lost productivity. And use of sedative drugs like Xanax and Valium have skyrocketed in the last 15 years. Even students are feeling it. One psychologist reports that the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s. Chances are, you or someone you know seriously struggles with anxiety.

Max writes, “The news about our anxiety is enough to make us anxious.” He knows what it feels like to be overcome by the worries and fear of life, which is why he is dedicated to helping millions of readers take back control of their minds and, as a result, their lives.

This 64-page booklet features practical steps from Max Lucado to help readers overcome anxiety. Eleven weekly reminders in all, each segment includes a Scripture verse for meditation, and a prayer to reframe anxious thoughts.

This booklet includes a passage from the book, Anxious for Nothing, by New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado. The small trim and low price point make this booklet easy to share with friends and family who are struggling with anxiety and need a fresh perspective on how to face it.

Stop letting anxiety rule the day. Join Max on the journey to true freedom and experience more joy, clarity, physical renewal, and contentment by the power of the Holy Spirit. Anxiety comes with life. But it doesn’t have to dominate your life.

Making Marriage Beautiful: Lifelong Love, Joy, and Intimacy Start with You

Making Marriage Beautiful: Lifelong Love, Joy, and Intimacy Start with You

Dorothy Littell Greco

What makes a marriage beautiful? Honesty? Compatibility? Physical and emotional intimacy? All of these are important, but there’s one component that determines the quality and longevity of a marriage more than anything else: a willingness to grow.

Because a wedding joins together two imperfect people, all couples experience disappointment, conflict, and pain. How husbands and wives respond to these challenges determines the kind of people they will become and the kind of marriage they will have.

Making Marriage Beautiful reveals how the pursuit of Christ results in profound transformation for both the individual and the marriage. Rather than offering clichés and formulas, Greco relies on candor, humor, and real life stories to bring encouragement and wisdom to all couples, regardless of whether they have been married four weeks or forty years.

Time Lottery (Time Lottery Series Book 1)

Time Lottery (Time Lottery Series Book 1)

Nancy Moser

Come experience a lottery unlike any other. The prize is not money, or a new car, or a trip to Bermuda. The prize is utterly priceless: time.
The annual Time Lottery offers its winners a chance to go back into their pasts and change something–make a different choice.
Follow the journey of three winners: a surgeon, a socialite, and a homeless man, as they travel back into their lives and totally immerse themselves in their pasts, exploring what could have been–fully immersed, without memory of what happened the first time, or the life they’ve left behind in the future. They live their second-chance lives without the encumbrances of memory or the benefit of future lessons learned.
At the culmination of their visit–after making their different choice–they experience Dual Consciousness, fully seeing their new past as well as remembering how it played out the first time around. They also remember what they’ve left behind in the future and face questions about what kind of future might evolve out of this new choice. One is known. The other is not.
With all of this knowledge, they are given one more monumental choice: should they stay in their new reality (their Alternity) and live out their lives amid their new choice and its unknown ramifications and outcomes? Or should they return to life as they know it in the future, their lives made richer from the Time Lottery experience?
What would you do? What life choice would you like to explore?
Winner of the Christy Award.
Read about three more winners in the Time Lottery sequel: “Second Time Around.”
