The Amish Bishop’s Disgrace: Christian Romance Suspense (Amish Outcasts Book 1)

Samantha Bayarr

This is NOT your traditional Amish Book!
He’d left her for dead; would she have been better off if she hadn’t begged for her life?

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree; what horrible secret is the Bishop hiding that would expose his own sins if he defends his son’s acts of violence? Eva begged God to give her a reason to live; could getting shunned for another’s sins be the answer to her prayer?

ATTENTION reader: This book is NOT your traditional Amish book. It deals with a very tough subject (domestic violence) and it is about forgiveness; if you don’t like it or don’t accept it, PLEASE do not leave a bad review. Let it go, forgive, and move on, please.

The Way to God – Updated Edition

Dwight L. Moody

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness – 1 John 1:9

There is life in Christ. Rich, joyous, wonderful life. It is true that the Lord disciplines those whom He loves and that we are often tempted by the world and our enemy, the devil. But if we know how to go beyond that temptation to cling to the cross of Jesus Christ and keep our eyes on our Lord, our reward both here on earth and in heaven will be 100 times better than what this world has to offer.

This book is thorough. It brings to life the love of God, examines the state of the unsaved individual’s soul, and analyzes what took place on the cross for our sins. The Way to God takes an honest look at our need to repent and follow Jesus, and gives hope for unending, joyous eternity in heaven.

About the Author
Dwight L. Moody, determined to make a fortune, arrived in Chicago and started selling shoes. But Christ found him and his energies were redirected into full-time ministry. And what a ministry it was. Today, Moody’s name still graces a church, a mission, a college, and more. Moody loved God and men, and the power of a love like that impacts generations.

Picking Daisy (New England Inspirations Book 3)

Picking Daisy (New England Inspirations Book 3)

Valerie Howard

Elise Gilpatrick never thought she would be a parent, especially not like this. After agreeing to take 15-year-old DJ as a temporary foster placement straight from the police station, she feels like she’s in over her head. But, as she learns on the job, and with a little help from her coworker, Elise realizes that she and DJ need to lean on each other, and on the God who pieced them together. Their rocky journey will only prove that it’s never too late to find the love of a family.
—————————————————–
Editorial Review: “I had the privilege of working on this book with Valerie. On the surface, it is a story of a woman who takes in a foster child. They both learn a lot about themselves and each other. It may not be a romance, but it is a love story.
Below the surface, Picking Daisy shows the reality of the system where children bounce from home to home at the mercy of adults who do their best, but are all too human. The emotional scars from going through any long-term foster care may never heal. The day a child ages out of the system is, at the same time, the anticipated day of freedom, and the terrifying day when they are pushed into the world without support.
Deeper yet, the story is one of redemption, of loving past the brokenness in our lives. It’s about second, and third chances, of a refusal to give up on hope, and learning when we are in the darkest of places, we are not alone.
I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of books which brought tears to my eyes.
Picking Daisy is one of them.”

Strong and Weak: Embracing a Life of Love, Risk and True Flourishing

Strong and Weak: Embracing a Life of Love, Risk and True Flourishing

Andy Crouch

Flourishing people are strong and weak.

Two common temptations lure us away from abundant living—withdrawing into safety or grasping for power. True flourishing, says Andy Crouch, travels down an unexpected path—being both strong and weak.

We see this unlikely mixture in the best leaders—people who use their authority for the benefit of others, while also showing extraordinary willingness to face and embrace suffering. We see it in Jesus, who wielded tremendous power yet also exposed himself to hunger, ridicule, torture and death. Rather than being opposites, strength and weakness are actually meant to be combined in every human life and community. Only when they come together do we find the flourishing for which we were made.

With the characteristic insight, memorable stories and hopeful realism he is known for, Andy Crouch shows us how to walk this path so that the image of God can shine through us. Not just for our own good, but for the sake of others.

If you want to become the kind of person whose influence leads to healthy communities, someone with the strength to be compassionate and generous, this is the book for you. Regardless of your stage or role in life, whether or not you have a position of leadership, here is a way to love and risk so that we all, even the most vulnerable, can flourish.

A Soldier’s Love: Mail Order Bride (Brides and Twins Book 1)

Natalie Dean

“I am not a man given to foolish superstitions, Miss O’Hara, but I daresay that John Turner’s soul will not rest until the mystery of his son has been resolved, and he was counting upon you to do so. Will you accept?”

Molly O’Hara was just a little girl when she lost her heart to James Turner, the handsome, high-spirited young man who, along with his twin brother, was the heir to the Turner Plantation. But the Civil War tore families apart; it split the Turner brothers as one fought for the Union and the other fought for the Confederacy. The war took Molly’s father’s life and left her mother a distraught widow.

Now the brothers are gone; one died in battle and James suffered the fate of Andersonville Prison, where most men are never heard from again. But when Molly, who grew up faster than her years, decides to become a mail-order bride at age eighteen, she answers an advertisement from a man named James Turner who runs a ranch in Texas. When she arrives, the man who introduces himself as Jim Turner is reserved and distant, nothing like the James Turner she remembers. But as their love grows, she learns more about the dark places in his soul and she realizes that part of him never left Andersonville.

Can Molly get James to finally face his past and admit who he is? Will her love run deep enough to break through the scars of war?

Blue Hole Back Home

Blue Hole Back Home

Joy Jordan-Lake

In a time when it thought cross burnings and men in white hoods were a thing of the past, a small town confronts a kind of hate it thought had long since died out….

Shelby Lenoir Maynard, nicknamed Turtle, has never much trusted girls her own age, spending her days instead with her brother and his pack of friends. But when a mysterious Sri Lankan girl of Moorish descent moves to town in the summer of 1979, Turtle invites her to their secret haven: the Blue Hole. Turtle could not have imagined how much that simple gesture would affect the rest of her life, or the lives of those she loved.

As tensions rise, it becomes clear there are those in Pisgah Ridge who reject the presence of anyone different–and those who would welcome the new refugee family. In just one summer–in a collision of love, hate, jealousy, beauty and a muddy swimming hole–everything changes.
