See Yourself Beautiful See Yourself Happy$17.99Read more
If someone asks you who you are, you probably have a pat answer that tells them what you do. But saying who you are? That’s not always so easy.
In See Yourself Beautiful, See Yourself Happy: An Invitation to Discover Who You Were Meant to Be, Sonia Luna invites you to embark on a journey to discover your true self. As the pastor of a church that reaches thousands weekly, she is known for her strong faith and Holy Spirit anointing.
Through each chapter, Sonia shows her vulnerability, sharing details of her life as a daughter, wife, mother, and minister of the Lord, explaining how everything developed her identity. By way of example, she offers insights into spiritual, psychological, and emotional issues that confront us as life unfolds.
This journey is shaped by our experiences since birth, the influences of our families, the moments that mark us, and the many stages that we go through in our development as human beings.
In an intimate, relatable narrative, Sonia describes how the psychological and emotional wounds that once affected us in our childhood and youth can continue to cause deep traumas that alter or threaten our identity. These can lead to insecurities, fears, difficulty in recognizing our own talents, and unsatisfactory interpersonal relationships.
But Sonia offers reason for hope, affirming that there is not a single life that cannot be transformed by God. She invites you to discover your identity through the “infinite trigger” of Christ. By placing your life in His hands, you will fulfill your divine purpose and see yourself as you are: beautiful, valued, and loved.
“It is only when we understand how valuable we are to God that we start to notice the mistaken concept we had of ourselves,” Sonia says.
Once you see the best in yourself as God does, you will know your true identity as His beloved child. Happiness awaits when you work to achieve the divine purpose He has for you.

Can we truly find peace and even blessing amid the chaos, the disappointments, and the other messes that life brings our way?
Life is often messy. We hear people say, “My life is a mess,” or “This situation is a mess.” What they mean is that life has become difficult, painful or confusing.

I have overcome the world” (NIV).

If you have not handled the messy issues or challenges in your life well in the past, then with God’s help, you can begin to manage them better, starting now.
We should never waste our pain. Through the wisdom distilled in this study guide, we can learn how to gain something from our messes, use those insights to avoid trouble in the future, and share our experiences to help other people find blessings in the midst of their messes.

I wrote the first edition of this book a decade ago. I was young and confident. Then ten years happened. To me. To you. To us.
I’m not quite as young as I once was, but I am still as confident as ever in this undeniable fact: our God is able. While so much in all our lives has changed, He has remained the same.

God is able.
Whether you and I have crossed paths in these pages before or it’s your first time to savor the beautiful truths found in Ephesians 3:20-21, I invite you to join me in this ten-years-wiser, updated edition, where I hope you’ll be reminded that your Father is able to take you above whatever you’ve been living beneath.

Come Forth : The Promise Of Jesus’s Greatest Miracle$32.99Read more
One of America’s most beloved spiritual leaders and the New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and Learning to Pray examines one of the most intriguing events in the New Testament-the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead-and explains its significance for us today.
In this wise and compassionate book, New York Times bestselling author Father James Martin, SJ, explores the story of Jesus’s greatest miracle-the raising of Lazarus from the dead-and what Jesus means when he calls each of us to “come forth.” Meditatively and carefully, Father Martin leads us verse by verse, offering profound reflections on Jesus’s lessons on love, family, sadness, frustration, fear, anger, freedom, and joy.
Come Forth combines compelling analysis of the biblical text, insights about the historical setting of the story, spiritual lessons for today’s readers, meditations on Lazarus in art and the larger culture, as well as stories from Martin’s travels through the Holy Land. As he explores these strands in depth, Martin helps us let go of the limiting beliefs that prevent us from experiencing God’s presence in our lives. We need only to open ourselves to the transformative story of Lazarus and trust that God can use it to free us to experience, like Lazarus, new life.
God The Covenant And The Contradiction$26.99Read more
Can fallen man really have personal relationship, or even fellowship, with a Holy God? Is there a path back to Eden?

From Abraham to David, to the New Covenant in the blood of the Lamb of God who took away the sin of the world, discover God’s everlasting blood covenants of redemption and restoration. Discover the vast scope of what He really did for you.

Kingdom Focus : Rethinking Today In Light Of Eternity$26.99Read more
“Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided to you.”
Having the right focus makes all the difference in life. If we are busy focusing on external frivolities or personal ambitions rather than on the kingdom of God, we wind up missing out on serving God’s kingdom-as well as many of the other things we hope to attain in life. However, when we align our lives with God’s Word, we get to experience the greatest freedom we could ever know.
In Kingdom Focus, Tony Evans teaches readers how to focus on the things God Himself focuses on in Scripture and explores the issues that delight His heart. It is by doing so that we can discover the joy and the power of delighting in the same things. Allow God to sharpen your focus, transform your mind, and empower you to live every aspect of your life in light of the kingdom to which you have been chosen and called, for such a time as this.
Learn how to:
*examine the spiritual habits we can employ to sharpen our focus for God’s kingdom,
*fully maximize life while on earth,
*delve deeper into the character and heart of God, and
*recognize how God’s love for us guides us every step of the way.
Kingdom Authority : Exercising God’s Rule In Your Life$22.99Read more
Are you living with the authority God has given you?
Many are desperate for power, but power is useless without the authority to use it. God has given His people His power and His authority to be used for His purposes. This is kingdom authority, or the divinely-authorized right and responsibility delegated to believers to act on God’s behalf in spiritually ruling over His creation under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. However, only those who are fully surrendered to Christ and aware of this gift use it.
In this book, Dr. Tony Evans, pastor and bestselling author, will help you discove how to:
*see God’s Kingdom initiatives more clearly
*take on God’s perspective in your life and remember the inheritance He has given you
*draw near to God and commit yourself to essential requirements for experiencing kingdom authority like prayer
*be aware of the spiritual realm in which God’s people operate
Kingdom authority can only be experienced by those who live out their days underneath the power of God. It’s by aligning our lives with Him that He allows us to share in His work.
God Never Gives Up On You$29.99Read more
Ever wonder if you’ve had one too many stumbles for God to use someone like you? If you could benefit from a tale of God’s unending, unbending, unswerving love and devotion, let bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado show you how God’s grace will transform your life.
God Never Gives Up on You is a book for the members of the Lost Halo Society. For the strugglers among us and the fumbler within us. For those of us who are part saint, part scoundrel. We mean well, but we don’t always do well. We have breakthroughs and breakdowns, often in the same hour. We need no reminder of our failures, but we could always use a refresher course on God’s perfect plan to use imperfect people to do great things.
No one is more suited to the task than Jacob. He was less a prodigy and more a prodigal. Strong on savvy. Low on conscience. Jacob took advantage of his famished brother and pulled the wool over the eyes of his dying father, yet God never turned his back on Jacob.
God used Jacob because God chose to use Jacob. Period. The word for that kind of devotion? Grace. Grace came after Jacob. Grace found him in the desert. Grace protected him in exile. Grace wrestled him to the ground and blessed him. Grace led him home to Canaan.
By taking a closer look at Jacob’s incredible story, you will:
*learn to see the ways God turns your brokenness into blessings,
*overcome shame and negative thoughts by embracing who you are in the eyes of a loving, merciful God, and
*strengthen your relationships by leading a life marked by grace and forgiveness for yourself and others.
Jacob’s story invites us to believe in a God who sticks beside the unworthy and underachievers and leads us safely home. If God can use Jacob to further his kingdom, he can use us too. Let Max show you how.

JourneyWise : Redeeming The Broken And Winding Roads We Travel$17.99Read more
JourneyWise: Finding meaning in each step along the path of life and being transformed by the journey as a whole.
A common thread binds us together: the broken and winding roads we all travel. Most of us carry with us some form of spiritual, emotional, or physical baggage. That type of weight takes its toll. Our paths can be difficult or daunting if we try to journey them on our own. In JourneyWise, noted pastor and author Shane Stanford offers us a different understanding of our life’s path, enabling us to reframe our journey into one that is healed and redeemed. He begins by asking these questions:
What if you could have Jesus Himself as your life’s companion? What if you had access to His innermost thoughts, tapping into His wisdom? What if your story could intimately intertwine with His and of others who closely follow Him? And what if all of this were possible by purposefully applying only a few paragraphs of His teachings?
The Beatitudes are more than just poetic verse used to begin Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount. They are the essence of Jesus’s message from beginning to end. These familiar words establish the overall tone of Jesus’s teaching ministry and reveal His most deeply held values.
To be JourneyWise is to discover and live out the simple yet powerful truths of the Beatitudes. It is through the Beatitudes, which literally mean “blessings,” that Jesus gives us a new definition of significance before leading us to reflect on the deeper meaning of life, our relationship with God, and the interconnections we have with others. They speak to our friendships, actions, fears, prejudices, and joys. They are pragmatic, powerful lessons wrapped in simple words. In their simplicity and accuracy, the Beatitudes yield amazing results when practiced faithfully.
This book will stir your spirit and touch your emotions to bring healing so you can follow Jesus wholeheartedly. Writing with honesty, poignancy, and compassion about the complexities of our daily existence, Shane shows how, in each beatitude, Jesus provides a foundation for developing a significant and spiritually formed life. Here, you will find words of hope and the infinite possibilities of Christ’s simple blessings.
JourneyWise with Jesus.
Christian Manifesto : Jesus’ Life-Changing Words From The Sermon On The Pla$18.99Read more
What does genuine Christian living look like in the 21st century, and how can we be motivated to live that way?
The answer comes from Jesus’ sermon in Luke 6 (sometimes known as the Sermon on the Plain), which starts, “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God and goes on to lay out God’s vision statement for the Christian life. It is a manifesto that transcends politics, culture and personality, detailing God’s intentions for his people.
Alistair Begg unpacks this sermon, encouraging Christians to live a radically different life that upends the world’s values and philosophies. It’s a lifestyle that is counterintuitive and countercultural, yet one that God blesses with true meaning and impact.
As we look at the kindness and compassion of Jesus and ask for the Holy Spirit’s help, we’ll grow in both the motivation and the ability to obey Jesus’ teaching and experience the blessing that comes from that.
This compelling book will remind you of God’s grace and what it means to follow him, helping you discover the ultimate blessing that is found in him.

Faithfully Present : Embracing The Limits Of Where And When God Has You$16.99Read more
Most of us feel that life is rushing past us. We reach the end of another day or week or year and wonder where it went. So we double down on trying to do more or do better–or distract ourselves with the many diversions the 21st century has to offer. But often we’re so busy thinking about the next thing that we’re at risk of missing the main thing: the people and places God has put in front of us, right here, right now.
There is a better way to live. In this thought-provoking book, Adam Ramsey helps us to embrace the time and place we are in and to live each day fully and faithfully present with God and with others. Readers will discover fresh joy in the little things, freedom from the tyranny of time and contentment in every season of life.
I Choose Peace$16.99Read more
Our lives are fraught with anxiety. Conflict in our relationships, fears about the future, information overload, financial pressure, lack of contentment–all of them can steal our joy because they steal our peace. Through Christ we are promised peace, but how can we feel peace when we live in a world of chaos?
Because, says Chip Ingram, peace isn’t a feeling; it’s a choice.
In I Choose Peace, Chip unpacks Philippians 4 to show us how we can choose peace in:
– relational conflict
– anxious moments
– a broken world
– difficult circumstances
– a materialistic culture
If you’re tired of feeling anxious over the state of the world, your relationships, or your own heart, this encouraging book will help you quiet your worries and experience real, lasting peace that doesn’t depend on what’s going on around you.
Deepest Place : Suffering And The Formation Of Hope$27.99Read more
In the face of personal and global suffering, is it possible to live with hope rather than despair? Join psychiatrist, speaker, and award-winning author Curt Thompson as he shows us how God transforms our grief into a lasting peace that surpasses all understanding.
Suffering is a defining reality of life. Yet so many of us are so focused on avoiding discomfort that we’ve never learned how to actually suffer. But what if we could move from anxiety to durable hope?
In The Deepest Place, Thompson invites us to explore how the Apostle Paul’s experience of love, secure attachment, and the deeply felt sense of God’s abiding presence carried him through the challenges he faced–and how it can help us not just survive, but flourish in the presence of suffering.
Combining scripture with his own professional insight, Thompson helps us discover that:
*Suffering can increase our sense of security rather than our fears
*Hope is something we form in community
*Faith can grow out of anger, cynicism, and doubt
*Perseverance changes our brain and reshapes our imagination
*Listening to our bodies helps us find new hope in loss
As Thompson reminds us, those who have suffered greatly, including the Apostle Paul, are able to see their stories with a new understanding of God’s presence and unfailing love. Let The Deepest Place show you how to do the same.
Closer Than Your Next Breath$18.99Read more
God is omnipresent–meaning He’s here, there, everywhere all at the same time–so no matter what you’re going through today or worried about facing tomorrow, He is closer than you can imagine, and His presence changes everything.
The God of creation cares deeply about every detail of our personal lives. He’s in charge of every galaxy and has named every star. He also knows about the hurts in our hearts and the hairs on our heads. He’s near and far. His glory fills the universe, and yet He’s up close and involved.
Though we believe in our minds that God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present, sometimes we don’t feel his closeness. How can we walk boldly in our faith, expecting Him to draw near to us as we draw near to Him, as promised in the book of James? In Closer Than Your Next Breath, bestselling author, speaker, and radio host Susie Larson helps readers experience God’s trustworthiness and love–even when they feel far from Him. In this book, readers will explore these questions and more:
*How do I know if I’m hearing the voice of God?
*Is feeling good the same as feeling God?
*Is there anything I can do when God seems silent?
*How should God’s presence impact me?
There’s nothing like God’s presence in our lives, but sometimes we chase the sensational and miss the supernatural. Worship services, retreats or conferences, and mountaintop experiences are great, but too often we rush right by the nuanced, miraculous ways God shows up in our story every day. When we pursue the heart of God through the Word of God, that’s when we experience the presence of God–and it makes all the difference in our lives.

When Your Way Isnt Working$27.99Read more
When you are worn-out, when you feel discouraged, when you think you don’t have what it takes, what is the one thing that Jesus wants you to never forget? When Your Way Isn’t Working equips you to discover authentic connection to God and others so you are free to live the life you long for.
In some of his final words to his closest friends, Jesus didn’t suggest a five-year plan for success or a checklist of things to do. Instead, he offered a metaphor about what the good life really looks like: I am the vine. You are the branches. Abide in me. In other words, No matter what happens next, the most important thing is to stay connected to me.
In When Your Way Isn’t Working, pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman offers a unique exploration of John 15 for all of us who are going through the motions and feel frustrated. Idleman reminds us that it’s connection, not production, that leads to a fruitful life–relationships, not circumstances, that bring joy. He offers his distinctive, biblical perspective on how to:
*Find greater rest, depth, and connection in your life
*Embrace freedom from the pressures of performance and production
*Recognize what you can’t do makes room for what God can do
*Step out of isolation even when it feels scary
*Discover the top distractions that keep you from connecting to God–and how to counter them
In the end, the fruit of your life won’t have to do with what you accomplished but with whom you stayed connected. Because no matter what happens next in this uncertain world, what matters most, lasts the longest, and brings the greatest joy is staying connected to the God who never leaves you.
Valuable : Why Your Worth Is Not Defined By How Useful You Feel$14.99Read more
We all want to be useful to God, but often we feel that we’re not, or, because of illness or other difficulties, that we can’t be as active as we’d like to be. Liz Carter wants to rescue us from the spiral of feeling useless that we get caught in, and to show us that being useful isn’t what Christianity is about. In fact, the Bible barely talks about God using people at all.
Weaving together insightful scriptural analysis and beautifully told stories, Liz takes us on a journey to see what the Bible really says about weakness, identity and God’s purposes for us: helping us to see ourselves and our relationship with God in an entirely different and much more glorious way. Readers will discover that our purpose as Christians is not about being useful but about being known by God and enjoying him.
This book is particularly helpful for those struggling with long-term physical or mental illness, but it’s also a great encouragement to Christians who feel that they are not good enough or useful enough to God for other reasons.
Questions at the end of each chapter make this a helpful resource to read with a friend or in groups.

Scrupulosity : Heal Your Mind, Unbind Your Soul, And Let God Work$18.95Read more
We are all called to reject sin, to grow in virtue, and, above all else, to love God with all that we are. But some souls suffer from anxiety and feelings of guilt because they see sin where there is none and struggle to embrace God’s love and mercy – a psychological and spiritual condition known as scrupulosity.
In Scrupulosity: Heal Your Mind, Unbind Your Soul, and Let God Work, clinical psychologist Dr. Kevin Vost provides a comprehensive overview of the ancient and current psychological and theological understanding of scrupulosity and how those who suffer from it can find peace and healing. He guides the reader through the empowering effects of the sacraments, virtues, gifts of the Holy Spirit, and prayer, as well as scientific insights into the physical and emotional reality of scrupulosity. Along the way, he offers inspiration from the lives of saints.
This book answers many common questions, such as:
*What are the causes of scrupulosity?
*How can I know if I have it?
*How does it manifest in thoughts, emotions, and behaviors?
*Does one outgrow scrupulosity over time?
Christ does not want us to live this life with troubled hearts mired in fear. Ultimately, this book invites both the scrupulous and those who love them to attain greater spiritual and psychological peace.
Now I Become Myself$19.99Read more
The experience of shame is more common than we think. It isn’t confined to those who have failed or gone through trauma or who have been told as children they would never amount to anything. People who are immensely successful also struggle with a sense they are deficient in some way.
Drawing on a wide range of sources including scripture, spiritual formation classics, psychology, and relational neuroscience, and using a rich variety of stories from his own life, Ken Shigematsu shows how a deep, experiential encounter with the love of God can heal us of our shame, make us whole, and inspire us to fulfill our purpose by making a faithful contribution to the world.
Now I Become Myself will help you to break free of envy and will reveal how beauty and the experience of joy can help us overcome shame. It is for anyone who has a sense of not being enough in some way–whether you’ve experienced suffering or success–who longs to live out of a healthy sense of security and freedom.
Disruptive Thinking : A Daring Strategy To Change How We Live, Lead, And Lo$27.00Read more
Doing things differently requires thinking differently and having the courage to challenge even the established ways of thinking and doing.
For most of our lives, we are encouraged to trudge along the well-worn paths of those who have come before us. We learn the rules – in our families, in our schools, in our workplaces, in our churches – and most of the messages we receive tell us that following the rules will allow us to arrive at the lives we desire.
But when change becomes not only desirable but also urgently necessary, this way of being no longer serves us. In fact, in every human endeavor, every major leap forward, has involved a cataclysmic challenge to existing ways of thinking and being. Breakthroughs, by definition, run against the grain and almost always encounter skepticism and opposition.
In this book for leaders, thinkers, doers, and creators, Bishop T.D. Jakes illuminates the pathway to encouraging and unleashing disruptive thinking and provides the wisdom and practical skills we need to evolve our most original and potentially transformational ideas from vision to reality. Through his insight into how our minds and emotions work and through his experiences as a pastor, entrepreneur, and creator, Bishop Jakes leads us into a new way of relating to and transforming the world around us for good. Breakthrough will show you the mindset and the tools you need to create groundbreaking and meaningful change in your own life and in the world around you.
Dont Look Back$28.99Read more
Moving on is not a one-time decision. It’s a way of living
There are times in life when we look back and feel desperate to make time stand still, particularly when we get blindsided by unexpected changes. But we can’t stop the flow of life, and we can’t stop time. What’s more, looking back doesn’t enable us to go back. More often than not, it just makes us stuck. In a place. In a space. In a memory. In a mindset. In a habit.In John 17:32, Jesus drops three little words: Remember Lot’s wife. We don’t know her name, history, or story. All we know is that when she was fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah, she was told not to look back, and she did the one thing she was asked not to do. She looked back and turned into a pillar of salt. And out of the 170 women referred to in the Scriptures, she’s the only one Jesus told us to remember.
With a rallying cry to Remember Lot’s wife, Bible teacher, international speaker, activist, and bestselling author Christine Caine motivates us to stop looking back, to get unstuck and to keep moving forward into God’s promises and purpose for our lives.
We may not know all God’s plans for us. We may not know where we are going, how long it will take us, or what we will encounter along the way, but with the strategies Christiane Caine gives, we can move on from where we are to where God wants us to be. In this new book, Christine will motivate you to:
*stop looking back and start looking to Jesus;
*invite Jesus in to help you get unstuck from the many places we often find ourselves;
*move on from where you are into all God’s plans, purposes, and promises for your life; and
*look forward to the future and keep moving toward it in faith–especially when your world is nothing like it once was.
Jesus is beckoning us onward into the newness of what lies ahead. Stop disqualifying yourself by getting stuck in the past. It’s time to remember Lot’s wife and not look back but move forward boldly.

A. W. Tozer wrote, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” How we view God makes all the difference in our lives. It informs everything about who we are and who we’re becoming.
When you think about God, do you imagine a ruler who demands absolute loyalty, or a coach who expects you to perform to his expectations? Or even a virtual assistant to help when other options are exhausted? This updated edition of the national bestseller Not Forsaken challenges our perception of who God is and points us to a heavenly Father who is not absent or ambivalent, but is available and affectionate, ready to shower us with his approval and love.
No matter what has happened on this side of eternity between you and your earthly dad, Seeing God as a Perfect Father will help you:
*Embrace who God is and discover the truth and beauty of his nature
*Understand that God uniquely created you and loves you unconditionally
*Unlock the chains holding you captive and find freedom in who you are in Christ
*Walk in the fullness, authority, and intimacy a child of God
When we take hold of the truth that our God has spanned heaven and earth to reach us, we will no longer be defined by our past but by the love of a perfect Father. Learn how God wants us to experience his unique, unconditional love and to live in the freedom, abundance, and blessing He freely gives.
Impact Of Ordinary People$10.99Read more
Moses, David, Joseph, Peter, Paul…these are just some of the well-known names of the Bible. They are the subject of countless sermons and stories that have inspired Bible lessons from childhood to adulthood.

Receiving Gods Promises (Revised)$16.99Read more
God’s Promises for Every Need
God is inviting you on a journey through the land of His promises and provision-the riches of your inheritance in Christ. The process by which you enter into your inheritance is similar to the journey made by the Israelites in the promised land. God gave them a specific way to gain possession of that land: step by step, stage by stage, area by area. He pledged, “Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you” (Joshua 1:3 NASB).
Likewise, as you step into each promise of God-in every area of your life-you will possess that much more of your inheritance as an heir of His kingdom. Every day, we face challenges that can be met through God’s powerful provision. In a very practical way, internationally renowned Bible teacher Derek Prince shows you how to address your difficulties and have your needs supplied by applying the specific promises appropriate for each situation. You can receive the blessings of wisdom, guidance, favor at work, good relationships, financial prosperity, healing, peace of mind, and many others.
God’s provision is in His promises, and His promises are our inheritance-not only in eternity but right now. Start walking through the land of God’s promises and claim your inheritance.
“[God] has given us everything we need…. He has given us His very great and precious promises” (2 Peter 1:3-4 NIV).
Revised and updated edition. Includes topical listing of Bible promises.

Little Way : Reflections On The Joy Of Smallness In God’s Infinite Love$15.99Read more
We want to love God with all our hearts, but we often find ourselves striving in our efforts to please Him, acutely aware of our weaknesses. As our failures pile up, we become frustrated and discouraged.
Have we missed the essence of the gospel? Is there a simple but true way to serve God that can fill us with joy and peace rather than fear and discouragement?
St. Therese of Lisieux faced similar struggles. As a young woman who desired to abandon herself to God, she felt daunted at the thought of climbing “the steep stairway of perfection.” Therese searched the Scriptures until she discovered a path to freedom she called her “little way.” This is “the way of spiritual childhood, the way of trust and absolute surrender.” It is a recognition that while we are small and imperfect, we have a mighty God who reaches out to us with infinite love, grace, and strength to take care of all our needs.
As Therese followed this new path, she considered herself a “little flower” in Jesus’s garden. She understood that she was beloved by her heavenly Father and delightful in His eyes. And she could bloom right where He planted her as she daily demonstrated His unconditional love to others in small but meaningful acts of kindness and interceded on their behalf.
This beautiful book highlights St. Therese’s deep insights into faith and devotion, while visually capturing, through simple floral illustrations, the theme of simplicity that permeated her life. As you read excerpts from St. Therese’s autobiography, poetry, and letters, with accompanying Scripture verses, you will learn to rest in the loving arms of your heavenly Father, allowing your own faith to grow and flourish.
Starved : Why We Need A Spiritual Diet Change To Move Us From Tired Anxious$16.99Read more
We’re consuming, we’re filling up, we’re taking in, but at the end of the day, our souls are still starving.
So many of us feel dissatisfied and empty emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. Our lives are rushed, overflowing, and we’re low on joy, fulfillment, peace, and purpose. In our spare moments, we turn to our phones, social media, and a million other little things, desperate for relief, but over time, these distractions become an unhealthy diet for our souls uplifting us for a moment but ultimately denying us the nourishment we need. When we overconsume these imposters that promise a temporary boost but actually leave us weak and weary, we become anxious, fearful, and depleted. These addicting substitutes keep us coming back for more, never providing satisfaction.
But there is hope. We don’t have to stay stuck and malnourished. We can become free of shame, disappointment, and anxiety.
In Starved, popular author and teacher Amy Seiffert shows readers how to stop ingesting spiritual junk food and offers simple and replenishing practices like silence, service, and Sabbath that can bring us closer to Jesus. She encourages us to put down our phones, set aside our pride, and let go of the hustle so that we can receive a spiritual diet change that will leave us delightfully content, spiritually healthy, and free to experience the goodness of Jesus.

Pierced By Love$22.99Read more
In Pierced by Love: Divine Reading with the Christian Tradition, Hans Boersma invites Christians to retrieve this ancient and meditative way of reading the Bible.
*Practice lectio divina.
*Experience an ancient but fresh way of reading the Bible.
*Learn from Augustine, Anselm of Canterbury, Bernard of Clairvaux, and others.
Jesus is the point of reading the Bible. Christians read Scripture to encounter Christ and be conformed to his image. Scripture is no mere human text; it is God’s living word. So how should we read it? For Christians throughout the centuries, the answer has been lectio divina-“divine reading.” Lectio divina is a sacramental reading. It aims to take us more deeply into the life of God. Through practicing the four movements of lectio divina-attentive reading, extended meditation, prayerful reflection, and silent resting-we have a structured and simple way to focus on Christ, listen to the Spirit, and rest in God’s love. We no longer simply read the words of Scripture; instead, we read the face of God in the eternal Word.
