FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Would You Remember Me?'

Wednesday, August 31, 2011


FREE Kindle Edition

* ONLY available for a limited time

Suicide is the third leading cause of death among adolescents and teenagers. In this short story, the writer is fifteen years old, contemplating suicide. In her darkest hour she writes a letter.

"I am so unimaginably sorry for doing what I am going to do, but you see I have all these fears. The fears and doubts I have are so real, so are they really as childish and silly as you always say they are. Sometimes, I am sad and so bitterly lonely and at times, I feel useless, as if I cannot accomplish even the simplest task. Do not get me wrong, I do not always feel this way, because we do laugh and we do often have fun together, but always though I still have this lonely, sadness in my chest. If you looked at me, you would never know the turmoil inside of me."

Reluctant at first, Charlotte warms to the notion and is soon coaching the Paradise Angels. Meanwhile, Charlotte discovers that the manager of Paradise, Fergus Wrinkel, abuses his wife, Suzy.

FREE Kindle Edition

The Oak Leaves
Two time periods—Regency England and contemporary Chicago—are woven together when Talie Ingram finds an old journal belonging to her great-great-great grandmother, Cosima Escott. Through Cosima's entries, Talie learns that her family was once considered cursed with feebleminded offspring, the result of a genetic disorder (Fragile-X) that may have been passed down to Talie and her sister. Unwilling to face the implications their discovery might have on her own life, Talie tucks the journal back into secrecy, until she begins to see signs of developmental delay in her son.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Stepping into the Good Life'


FREE Kindle Edition

* ONLY available for a limited time

Shelia Rushmore thought she'd be the last woman standing when it was time to fight for her man. Instead Ace, her boyfriend of two years, chose to reunite with his ex-wife, leaving Shelia emotionally devastated. It's a year later when Sheila is convinced that sneaking into their wedding ceremony will put closure on the gaping hole in her heart. But it's on the back pew of the church where a new relationship begins for Shelia. She can't explain the touch she received from God on that day, but she's determined to be a better woman-a woman of faith. Since high school, Shelia has been chasing her definition of the good life - it's left her with no home, no man, and no money. But now that's she's living life for God, things should get better, right? Shelia learns that living a faith-filled life isn't always easy.

With faith, tough love, and some tough decisions, Shelia realizes that the life she'd been praying for she could have for herself is actually attainable. Being wrapped in God's arms, she decided, was by far the safest place she'd ever been.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Clear Blue Sky'

Saturday, August 20, 2011


FREE Kindle Edition

* ONLY available for a limted time

It's the beginning of a gorgeous September in the City that Never Sleeps. Summer may be officially over, but Labor Day Weekend means ethnic festivals and dancing the streets and lots of overtime for police officer Tony Cavalucci. When crowd control gets unusually dangerous, Tony starts to wonder why he even does this kind of work. And going home doesn't bring him any more respect. His neurotic and dramatic family disapproves of both Tony's fiancé and his new-found faith.

All this foreshadows what's about to come to the people of New York on September 11, 2001. Normal day-to-day events and fantastic weather lead up to the most difficult day in the city's history. Now Tony finds himself in brand new territory. As he fights to survive and help others survive as well, Tony learns all over what faith means, what family means, and what life itself means. The author of this highly compelling novel is an ex-cop who survived the World Trade Center rescue efforts. Consequently, the storytelling throughout the book rings with authenticity. All of this makes for a fast-paced and deeply moving page-turner that is at times funny, at times horrible, and always full of humanity, compassion, and the presence of God. The Liones offer their very best work in Clear Blue Sky.

Heal the Wound

Friday, August 19, 2011



Heal the Wound ~ Point of Grace

I used to wish that I could rewrite history
I used to dream that each mistake could be erased
Then I could just pretend
I never knew the me back then

I used to pray that You would take this shame away
Hide all the evidence of who I've been
But it's the memory of
The place You brought me from
That keeps me on my knees
And even though I'm free

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

I have not lived a life that boasts of anything
I don't take pride in what I bring
But I'll build an altar with
The rubble that You've found me in
And every stone will sing
Of what You can redeem

I have not lived a life that boasts of anything
I don't take pride in what I bring
But I'll build an altar with
The rubble that You've found me in
And every stone will sing
Of what You can redeem
Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

Don't let me forget
Everything You've done for me
Don't let me forget
The beauty in the suffering

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Concise Commentary on the Bible'

Thursday, August 18, 2011


FREE Kindle Edition
* ONLY available for a limited time

The Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible brings exceptional depth to familiar Biblical passages. Henry astutely presents the historical and cultural background for each book of the Bible, always beginning with a brief summary of the book's setting and larger purpose. This work is a one-volume abridgement of Henry's greatest work, so the text is less cumbersome than that of the original publication; yet it might still require a little patience from the reader. Nevertheless, using this commentary is well worth the effort, and those who read its contents will not be disappointed. The Concise Commentary is an exciting new way to study the Bible that will be cherished by all.

Finally Free ~ Nichole Nordeman
 
No chain is strong enough
No choice is wrong enough
No mountain high enough
That He can't climb
 
No shadow dark enough
No night is black enough
No road is lost enough
That He can't find
 
And if the Son has set us FREE
Then we must be FREE INDEED
 
Let the chains fall away
Starting today!!!
 
Everything has changed!
I'm FINALLY FREE!!!
 
No pain is deep enough
No heart could bleed enough
Nothing but Jesus love can make a way

* ONLY available for a limited time

Relationships are the most important part of our lives. They are the source of our greatest joys but also our deepest sorrows. Much of our pain in life comes from difficult or broken connections with other people. This book focuses on four principles that make all relationships succeed: integrity, love, humility, and forgiveness.

These four factors are essential to the most intimate and the most public relationships, yet we can't achieve them on our own. The authors explain how we can be empowered by God to practice these four compelling keys to relational wholeness.
