Unsinkable Faith: God-Filled Strategies to Transform the Way You Think, Feel, and Live

Unsinkable Faith: God-Filled Strategies to Transform the Way You Think, Feel, and Live

Tracie Miles

For many people, remaining optimistic and feeling positive about themselves and their lives is a constant battle—especially when circumstances are difficult and life is hard. For others, negativity is something that only sneaks up from time to time, yet still wreaks havoc in their hearts. Regardless of the root causes, once pessimistic thoughts permeate our minds, our feelings and emotions begin to control us instead of us controlling them. Eventually it doesn’t seem possible to stay positive, happy, and full of joy, and negative thought patterns shake our faith, causing us to sink emotionally, mentally, and spiritually over time. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Despite what storms roll in, hearts anchored in God don’t sink. When we change the way we think, we can change the way we feel and live, even if our circumstances remain the same. Intentionally embracing the opportunity to experience a transformed heart and a renewed mind opens the door for a changed life, because a positive mind will always lead to a more positive life.

In Unsinkable Faith, author and Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker Tracie Miles offers hope for women who struggle with negativity. Each chapter explores Tracie’s and other women’s personal stories, showing how they rose above their circumstances by transforming and renewing their minds. Unsinkable Faith is a breath of fresh air for anyone longing for a heart full of joy, an unbreakable smile, and a new, more optimistic perspective on life. This book will equip you to:

Replace pessimism with positive thinking by becoming the captain of your thoughts;
Learn how true joy and happiness are based on choice, not circumstances;
Overcome unhealthy habits of negative thinking by intentionally implementing three easy mind-renewing steps;
Stop feeling hopeless and pitiful, and start feeling hope-filled and powerful instead; and
Discover that when you change the way you think, you change the way feel, and in turn you can change your life completely.

Billy Graham: Leading with Love: 5 Timeless Principles for Effective Leaders

Billy Graham: Leading with Love: 5 Timeless Principles for Effective Leaders

Matt Woodley

Throughout Billy Graham’s evangelical ministry, his roles as an evangelist and as “America’s pastor” have been well documented. However, the story that remains untold is the story of his leadership—both publicly and in private—as a minister and as a CEO.

For more than fifty years, Graham was CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and oversaw its worldwide gatherings and diverse media divisions. In addition, he was at the forefront of the robust “evangelical movement” that rose from obscurity in the 1940s to become a prominent social and political force fifty years later. Time magazine named Graham one of the top ten leaders of the twentieth century.

Graham’s passionate leadership style has been an inspiration to many, and now, in Billy Graham: Leading with Love, it is condensed into five essential principles. Based on interviews with Graham’s colleagues, associates, and friends, this unique insight into Graham’s life and ministry offers behind-the-scenes glimpses of his courageous leadership style and core beliefs.

The Quiet Revolution: An Active Faith That Transforms Lives and Communities

The Quiet Revolution: An Active Faith That Transforms Lives and Communities

Jay F. Hein

American citizens have always been the backbone of ambitious solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. The twenty-first century has seen an unprecedented rise in generosity and a steep decline in global poverty. In The Quiet Revolution, readers are invited inside the White House to see how presidents have aided in this success by rallying Americans to serve their nation by volunteering in their local communities and around the world.

President George W. Bush’s Faith-Based and Community Initiative was a catalyst for many of these dramatic social improvements. Yet, the big story is not what happened in Washington, D.C., but rather what takes place in countless communities across the nation. There is not a social problem in America that is not being addressed by a faith-based or community group every day.

The Quiet Revolution is about championing the unsung work of ordinary volunteers spurred by faith and simple goodwill to roll up their sleeves in order to care for their neighbors in need.

What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done

Matthew Aaron Perman

Do Work That Matters Productivity isn’t just about getting more things done. It’s about getting the right things done—the things that count, make a difference, and move the world forward.

In our current era of massive overload, this is harder than ever before. So how do you get more of the right things done without confusing mere activity for actual productivity?

When we take God’s purposes into account, a revolutionary insight emerges. Surprisingly, we see that the way to be productive is to put others first—to make the welfare of other people our motive and criteria in determining what to do (what’s best next). As both the Scriptures and the best business thinkers show, generosity is the key to unlocking our productivity. It is also the key to finding meaning and fulfillment in our work.

What’s Best Next offers a practical approach for improving your productivity in all areas of life. It will help you better understand:

Why good works are not just rare and special things like going to Africa, but anything you do in faith even tying your shoes.
How to create a mission statement for your life that actually works.
How to delegate to people in a way that actually empowers them.
How to overcome time killers like procrastination, interruptions, and multitasking by turning them around and making them work for you.
How to process workflow efficiently and get your email inbox to zero every day.
How your work and life can transform the world socially, economically, and spiritually, and connect to God’s global purposes.

By anchoring your understanding of productivity in God’s purposes and plan, What’s Best Next will give you a practical approach for increasing your effectiveness in everything you do.

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.

One Glorious Ambition: The Compassionate Crusade of Dorothea Dix, a Novel

One Glorious Ambition: The Compassionate Crusade of Dorothea Dix, a Novel

Jane Kirkpatrick

One dedicated woman…giving voice to the suffering of many

Born to an unavailable mother and an abusive father, Dorothea Dix longs simply to protect and care for her younger brothers, Charles and Joseph. But at just fourteen, she is separated from them and sent to live with relatives to be raised properly. Lonely and uncertain, Dorothea discovers that she does not possess the ability to accept the social expectations imposed on her gender and she desires to accomplish something more than finding a suitable mate.

Yearning to fulfill her God-given purpose, Dorothea finds she has a gift for teaching and writing. Her pupils become a kind of family, hearts to nurture, but long bouts of illness end her teaching and Dorothea is adrift again. It’s an unexpected visit to a prison housing the mentally ill that ignites an unending fire in Dorothea’s heart—and sets her on a journey that will take her across the nation, into the halls of the Capitol, befriending presidents and lawmakers, always fighting to relieve the suffering of what Scripture deems, the least of these.

In bringing nineteenth-century, historical reformer Dorothea Dix to life, author Jane Kirkpatrick combines historical accuracy with the gripping narrative of a woman who recognized suffering when others turned away, and the call she heeded to change the world.

Corban Addison

Daniel and Vanessa Parker are an American success story. He is a Washington, DC, power broker, and she is a physician with a thriving practice. But behind the gilded façade, their marriage is a shambles, and their teenage son, Quentin, is self-destructing. In desperation, Daniel dusts off a long-delayed dream—a sailing trip around the world. Little does he know, the voyage he hopes will save them may destroy them instead.

Half a world away on the lawless coast of Somalia, Ismail Adan Ibrahim is living a life of crime in violation of everything he was raised to believe—except for the love and loyalty driving him to hijack ships for ransom and plot the rescue of his sister, Yasmin, from the man who murdered their father. There is nothing he will not do to save her, even if it means taking innocent lives.

Paul Derrick is the FBI’s top hostage negotiator. His twin sister, Megan, is a celebrated defense attorney. They have reached the summit of their careers by savvy, grit, and a secret determination to escape the memory of the day their family died. When Paul is dispatched to handle a hostage crisis at sea, he has no idea how far it will take him and Megan into the past—or the chance it will give them to redeem the future.

Across continents and oceans, through storms and civil wars, the paths of these individuals converge in a single, explosive moment. It is a moment that will test them and break them, but it will also leave behind an unexpected glimmer of hope—that out of the ashes of tragedy and misfortune, the seeds of justice and reconciliation can grow.

Trust My Heart

Carol J. Post

A RITA Award finalist, Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements.

Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible. The big-city lawyer has no interest in his late, estranged grandparents or the dilapidated mansion he just acquired. After his high-profile divorce, he should be avoiding perky reporters, too. But Jami Carlisle is honest, funny, and undeniably appealing.

After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore—much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant’s fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.

The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there’s healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what’s needed to finally guide him home…
