The Lord's Mercy


“The Lord's mercy often rides to the door of our heart
upon the black horse of affliction.”

~ Charles H. Spurgeon

And we know that in all things
God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose.
~ Romans 8:28 NIV

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Ready or Not'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Fresh out of college, Aggie Milliken thinks she's prepared for anything life can throw her way. Think again, Aggie!

After the abrupt loss of her sister and brother-in-law, Aggie is stunned to find herself the sole guardian of their eight lively children. If learning basic parenting skills wasn't complicated enough, she must also battle the children's half-crazed grandmother, survive a massive remodeling project, and navigate the waters of new friendships-alone.

She has little experience with children and none with housekeeping, and it shows. What she has going for her is grit, a double dose of determination, and the confidence that this is exactly where the Lord wants her to be. With an unlimited P-mail account and enough hymns to keep her spirits bolstered, she tackles one catastrophe after another.

It seems like nothing Aggie does is right, but ready or not, here she comes!

Many Are the Afflictions of the Righteous...

Friday, June 22, 2012


"Everything you go through as a Christian is a training exercise behind which God has a divine purpose. He did not save you so that you could cruise into paradise on a luxury liner; He saved you to prepare you to be of use in His kingdom. The moment you were born again, He enrolled you in His school of suffering. And every affliction, every trial, is another lesson in the curriculum."

"Some Christians are in kindergarten. Their afflictions are not difficult to understand and their tests are much easier to endure. Others are in grade school, and they quickly learn that their tests have become a little tougher to face and harder to understand. Others are in college, and their afflictions are much more severe and more difficult to figure out. Still others are in postgraduate school, with years of hard afflictions behind them and many difficult tests looming before them. Their afflictions are the toughest of their lives, and they realize they need Holy Ghost strength to deal with them all. My point is, God wants veterans of spiritual warfare — people who have been through many afflictions — to prove His faithfulness to the next generation. And every affliction we endure is an investment He is making in us as His veterans."

~ David Wilkerson

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the Lord delivereth him out of them all”
~ Psalm 34:19

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Turning OFF Noise; Tuning IN to Healthy Sound'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Individuals in today's culture rarely think about the need to make responsible choices concerning the sounds they listen to. Most people are usually unaware of the affect of sound, its benefits and its detriments. Silence, the absence of sound, is not in style these days and can even be difficult to find. Western culture conditions us to be comfortable with noise and crowds, not with silence and solitude. Turning OFF Noise: Tuning IN to Healthy Sound will offer you ideas for making responsible "sound" choices, including times of refreshment with God!

The Beatitudes of Satan


The Beatitudes of Satan

Blessed are they who are too tired and too busy to go to church
for they are my best workers.

Blessed are they who are bored with the minister's mannerisms and mistakes,
for they get nothing out of the sermon.

Blessed is the church member who expects to be invited to his own church
for he is part of the problem instead of the solution.

Blessed are they who gossip,
for they cause strife and divisions that please me.

Blessed are they who are easily offended,
for they soon get angry and quit.

Blessed are they who do not give their offerings to carry on God's work
for they are my best helpers.

Blessed is he who professes to love God but hates his brother and sister,
for he shall be with me forever.

Blessed are the trouble-makers,
for they shall be called children of the devil.

Blessed is he who has no time to pray,
for he will be easy prey.

FREE Kindle Edition: 'A Place of Healing' by Joni Eareckson Tada


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy. Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni a quadriplegic. Today, she faces a new battle: unrelenting pain. The ongoing urgency of this season in her life has caused Joni to return to foundational questions about suffering and God’s will. A Place of Healing is not an ivory-tower treatise on suffering. It’s an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God. Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no—and find new hope for thriving in-between.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'The Measure of Success: An Impassioned Plea to Pastors'

Tuesday, June 19, 2012


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

How do pastors measure success? Is it through the number of people who fill the pews on Sunday morning? Is it tied to programs, building projects, salary, or book deals? Is it about how much technology they use or what their worship band sounds like? Shawn Lovejoy has seen all of these measures of success lead pastors toward pride, self-reliance, loneliness, isolation, exhaustion, and, in the most extreme cases, self-destruction.In this honest and encouraging book, he calls pastors back to the "main thing"--the call to love people and make disciples--and to measure their success the way God does. Using Scripture, personal examples, and case studies, Lovejoy gently leads pastors back to their first love, and in doing so he leads them toward a more effective and joy-filled ministry.

Where's Your Focus?

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


‎"Nothing will have a stronghold on you that is not an area of focus in your life.
The only reason it has taken that place and gotten highly exalted
is because we focus so much on it."

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Becoming Your Spouse's Better Half'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

It's no secret that men and women are different. And it's no secret that they don't always get along because of these differences, even when they love each other. But having a successful marriage is not about finding the perfect person to marry. It's about loving someone in an unselfish, Christlike manner. Whatever we want out of marriage--unconditional love, forgiveness, passion--that is what we have to give to our spouse. Rick Johnson shows couples how to go beyond merely tolerating each other's differences to using those God-given differences to add spice and passion to their relationship.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'The Ways of God (Finding Purpose Through Your Pain)'

Saturday, June 09, 2012


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Unexpectedly, we find that our faith has had a collision between high hopes and harsh realities—life isn’t turning out like we expected. We find ourselves questioning whether or not God is really in control . . . because life sure isn’t. Though He claims to be “all we need,” we’re just not exactly sure we believe that. In our fight of faith, we’re convinced that His thoughts are higher than our thoughts—as hard as we try, we can’t figure God out. And although His ways may be higher, they certainly don’t seem better—we made plans for our lives, but God is directing our steps and taking us places we never wanted to go.

It becomes clear that God has brought us to a place in life where faith is no longer an option or a luxury, it’s a necessity— He’s brought us to our knees, so that we have nowhere to look, but up. In our hopelessness, we find God teaching us to trust Him, when there is no evidence that we should.

“The Ways of God” takes your faith to the next level. You’ll come to understand that although you don’t know where your life is headed, God does. You’ll grasp that when you can’t know every detail of His will, you can trust it.
