Bridge to Grace: Finding life and peace in the midst of death and chaos

Bridge to Grace: Finding life and peace in the midst of death and chaos

Jeanette Duby

Bridge to Grace – Finding life and peace in the midst of death and chaos is about grace, God’s grace. It’s about two people who were pursued by God in an effort to bring them back into right relationship with Himself.

Many people are walking around today under the misguided belief that God does not love them because of who they are or what they have done. Some people have put God in a box up on the highest shelf, hoping the dust will eventually make him unrecognizable and He will leave them alone. But my experience is that God pursues us because He wants a relationship with us. It’s in those moments where we feel like we could never measure up to God, that we find a loving Father holding out His hands extending grace and mercy to us because He loves us. We may feel like we could never come to God because of what we have done, but God in his infinite grace and mercy loves us and longs to have a relationship with you and me.

The bridge to grace is lined with love. Its members, its structure, its beams all embody love. Love seeps from the crevices. Its strength is like no other. It supports the weight of the broken, the hurting and the lost. It stands strong against the powerful winds of change and is not easily moved.

God is love. He loves us and He pursues us with that love. And when I experienced His love, I was able to share that love with others. I appreciate the love God has for me. I appreciate what Jesus has done for me on the cross at Calvary. It was love that led me. It was love that shaped me. It was love that saved me. It was love that led me to grace, God’s grace.

So whether you are standing at the foot of the bridge, in the middle of the bridge or you’re almost across, keep moving forward. God’s open arms are waiting for you.

Preaching and Preachers

Preaching and Preachers

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“Some may object to my dogmatic assertions; but I do not apologize for them. Every preacher should believe strongly in his own method; and if I cannot persuade all of the rightness of mine, I can at least stimulate them to think and to consider other possibilities. I can say quite honestly that I would not cross the road to listen to myself preaching, and the preachers whom I have enjoyed most have been very different indeed in their method and style. But my business is not to describe them but to state what I believe to be right, however imperfectly I have put my own precepts into practice. I can only hope that the result will be of some help, and especially to young preachers called to this greatest of all tasks, and especially in these sad and evil times. With many others I pray that ‘The Lord of the harvest may thrust forth’ many mighty preachers to proclaim ‘the unsearchable riches of Christ!'”

NIV, Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women, eBook: Insights for Everyday Life

NIV, Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women, eBook: Insights for Everyday Life

Lysa TerKeurst

As women, we want to fully live up to our God-given potential. But we fall victim to the messages the world whispers in our ears: “You need to buy all of this stuff in order to feel complete.” “You’d be a lot happier if you had a different husband.” “If you’re not super mom and you can’t do it all, you aren’t good enough.”
The reality is, what the world tells us isn’t true. If we listened to these messages, our lives would become harried, empty, and phony. Instead we need to listen to the messages that God gives us in his Word. A great place to start is Proverbs 31. The woman described in this passage seems like the ideal woman, and she is. But even more, she is real. She is authentic and true, with a heart for God, a heart for her family, and a heart for her community.
How do you become that woman? It’s a journey, and it happens by the choices you make every day. The NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women will help you become the woman you want to be. With insightful daily devotions from Lysa TerKeurst and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries, this Bible helps you maintain life’s balance in spite of today’s hectic pace. The 365 daily devotions inspire you to live authentically as a woman of God.

Dear Mr. Knightley: A Novel

Dear Mr. Knightley: A Novel

Katherine Reay

“Katherine Reay’s Dear Mr. Knightley kept me up until 2:00 a.m.; I simply couldn’t put it down.” —Eloisa James, New York Times best-selling author of Once Upon a Tower

Samantha Moore has always hidden behind the words of others—namely, her favorite characters in literature. Now, she will learn to write her own story—by giving that story to a complete stranger.

Sam is, to say the least, bookish. An English major of the highest order, her diet has always been Austen, Dickens, and Shakespeare. The problem is, both her prose and conversation tend to be more Elizabeth Bennet than Samantha Moore.

But life for the twenty-three-year-old orphan is about to get stranger than fiction. An anonymous, Dickensian benefactor (calling himself Mr. Knightley) offers to put Sam through Northwestern University’s prestigious Medill School of Journalism. There is only one catch: Sam must write frequent letters to the mysterious donor, detailing her progress.

As Sam’s dark memory mingles with that of eligible novelist Alex Powell, her letters to Mr. Knightley become increasingly confessional. While Alex draws Sam into a world of warmth and literature that feels like it’s straight out of a book, old secrets are drawn to light. And as Sam learns to love and trust Alex and herself, she learns once again how quickly trust can be broken.

Reminding us all that our own true character is not meant to be hidden, Reay’s debut novel follows one young woman’s journey as she sheds her protective persona and embraces the person she was meant to become.

“Dear Mr. Knightley is a stunning debut—a pure gem with humor and heart.” —Serena Chase, USA Today

A Portrait of Emily Price

A Portrait of Emily Price

Katherine Reay

Art restorer Emily Price has never encountered anything she can’t fix—until she meets Ben, an Italian chef, who seems just right. But when Emily follows Ben home to Italy, she learns that his family is another matter . . .

Emily Price—fix-it girl extraordinaire and would-be artist—dreams of having a gallery show of her own. There is no time for distractions, especially not the ultimate distraction of falling in love.

But Chef Benito Vassallo’s relentless pursuit proves hard to resist. Visiting from Italy, Ben works to breathe new life into his aunt and uncle’s faded restaurant, Piccollo. Soon after their first meeting, he works to win Emily as well—inviting her into his world and into his heart.

Emily astonishes everyone when she accepts Ben’s proposal and follows him home. But instead of allowing the land, culture, and people of Monterello to transform her, Emily interferes with everyone and everything around her, alienating Ben’s tightly knit family. Only Ben’s father, Lucio, gives Emily the understanding she needs to lay down her guard. Soon, Emily’s life and art begin to blossom, and Italy’s beauty and rhythm take hold of her spirit.

Yet when she unearths long-buried family secrets, Emily wonders if she really fits into Ben’s world. Will the joys of Italy become just a memory, or will Emily share in the freedom and grace that her life with Ben has shown her are possible?

Believing in Tomorrow: A Christian Romance (The Callaghans & McFaddens Book 4)

Believing in Tomorrow: A Christian Romance (The Callaghans & McFaddens Book 4)

Kimberly Rae Jordan

This Christian romance novel of 85,000 words is the fourth book in The Callaghans & McFaddens series from USA Today bestselling author Kimberly Rae Jordan. A HANDFUL OF FLOWERS (ASIN: B01APAIXM6) is the prequel to this series.

In the blink of an eye, her forever turned to never.

Jayden Murray promised he loved her and saw forever with her, so Sammi McFadden allowed things to go further than she’d known was right. But instead of proposing, Jayden tells her he’s fallen in love with someone else. Heartbroken at not just the loss of her dreams, but the loss of innocence, Sammi heads down a path that is riddled with bad decisions.

He’d always taken on responsibility when necessary, so he could do no less for her.

Levi Weston isn’t sure what to make of things when his one-night-stand shows up on his doorstep three months after the fact…pregnant. As with every other issue that’s arisen in his life, he is willing to take responsibility and do what’s right. But as he gets to know the mother of his child, Levi is confused by the guilt and shame that seem to weigh so heavily on Sammi.

Sammi’s faith is as foreign to Levi as the idea of becoming a father, and though he wants to learn about both, he hates the idea of his child being raised in an environment of shame. As he gets to know Sammi, Levi realizes that things are more complex than he’d realized.

Sammi struggles to accept the consequences for her actions and to live with her new reality—unwed mother instead of wife and then mother. Though it eats at her soul, she feels that the judgment she faces is her lot to bear.

Can Levi get Sammi to see that their child deserves better? Or will she lose everything she’s dreamed of for her tomorrow because she can’t accept that forgiveness is hers for the taking?
