Believing God
Join best-selling author and Bible teacher Beth Moore in her latest book as she explores what it means to know and truly believe God, not just to believe IN Him. Through the examples of believers like Abraham and Moses, who trusted God's promises, Beth encourages Christians of all ages to deepen their own trust in God, live out their faith and receive a fresh word from Him.

John the apostle must have thought he had seen everything. Having been with Jesus all the years of his ministry, John witnessed more miracles than he could count, saw more displays of power than he could comprehend, and experienced more love than he could fathom. And one unforgettable morning young John outran Peter to his Savior’s empty tomb. Just as Christ took John on a lifelong journey into the depths of His love, He will do the same for you. The bridegroom’s love is unmatched and inexhaustible, and He is waiting to lavish it on you, His beloved.

It is reported in the headlines, confessed in the pulpits, and hidden in the pews in churches around the world. The seduction of God’s people by the deceiver is a tale as old as the garden, but we are always surprised when it happens. We must realize that Satan is a lion on the prowl and we are his prey.
Beth writes with a passion fueled by the Biblical warnings of the schemes of Satan’s seductive activity and the broken-hearted concern of a teacher who receives countless letters from repentant Christians limping on the road to finding restoration. Delivering dire warnings to Christians to safeguard themselves against Satan’s attacks, Beth also reveals how you can know if someone is vulnerable. Beth writes, “We, Christ’s church, are in desperate need of developing His heart and mind in issues like these.” She fears that often God is far more merciful than the Body of Christ is with the deeply repentant and those desperate to find their way home. When Godly People Do Ungodly Things will be a guide to authentic repentance and restoration.

In To Live Is Christ, best-selling author Beth Moore travels on a spiritual odyssey through the life of one of Christianity’s most fervent journeymen, the apostle Paul, tracing his story from childhood to martyrdom.

Proclaiming his faith as a benchmark in New Testament Scripture, Beth writes, "I have accepted many of Paul’s words as a personal challenge. ‘I want to know Christ’ has become my plea. ‘To live is Christ and to die is gain’ has become my hope. And to borrow his words once more, ‘Not that I have already obtained all this . . . but I press on.’"

Paul’s undying passion for Christ continues to inspire and challenge those with a deep spiritual hunger for the things of God. Readers will be greatly refreshed by the obvious mercy of God that causes those who have failed him to repent and serve him wholeheartedly and effectively.

#free4kindle ~ 'HCSB Bible'


FREE Kindle Book

* Limited Time Offer

This updated text edition of the HCSB is optimized for easy reading on digital devices. Free from the visual clutter of footnotes, cross references, and other links, this edition is fast to navigate and easy to use.

The HCSB was developed by 100 scholars and English stylists from 17 denominations, who prayerfully translated what is one of the most significant Bible translations available today. The HCSB reflects linguistic advances in vocabulary, grammar, punctuation and formatting while it retains meaningful theological terms. In the HCSB you'll find God's personal name (Yahweh), the use of "Messiah" in the New Testament, and the use of "slave" in the New Testament, just to name a few examples. Also, you'll notice the contemporary speech patterns in the HCSB mean that words like "behold" and "shall" are not used. Instead, words or phrases that are common today can be found in their place.

The HCSB employs a first-of-its kind translation philosophy known as Optimal Equivalence, which seeks to achieve an optimal balance of literary precision and emotive clarity through a comprehensive analysis of the text at every level. This process assures maximum transfer of both words and thoughts contained in the original.

LifeStone Jewelry Custom Bracelet Giveaway

Tuesday, December 17, 2013


This project has been in the works for awhile now, 
a combination effort on behalf of LifeStone Jewelry 

And I am absolutely thrilled to announce that one of my faithful friends
will have the opportunity to win 1 customized bracelet.

Designed for Karla at Empowering Christian Women

The Vision Behind the Bracelet

Throughout a long and lengthy wilderness season, a dark and desolate place...
a time when ALL seemed lost...friendships, church family, health...and even my faith at times...
I found myself longing for a tangible reminder to 'know' that God was with me.

All through the wilderness journey, God would whisper..

"Be still...and know that I am God..."
~ Psalm 46:10 NIV

"The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still."
~ Exodus 14:14 NIV

"It is better to trust and take refuge in the Lord
than to put confidence in man."
~ Psalm 118:8 AMP

And so many more Scriptures of HOPE...
but the bottom line was...
He was calling me to trust HIM.

It was during this dark time of isolation that the Holy Spirit had given me a vision for a bracelet...
something I could look at that would remind me that I was not alone
 It would be a physical reminder to 'focus on Christ' and not my circumstances.

Throughout the wilderness journey, I learned to embrace the season of isolation and 'waiting'.
It was one of the hardest seasons of my life, but through it all,
God engraved this Scripture upon my heart...

"...I will never leave you or forsake you."
~ Hebrews 13:5 ESV

Even though the journey was difficult, my faith was strengthened.

#free4kindle ~ 'Making Your Differences Work for Your Marriage'


FREE Kindle Book

* 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, Christ like 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.

#free4kindle ~ "The Purpose and Power of Love and Marriage'

Saturday, December 14, 2013


FREE Kindle Book

* Limited Time Offer

Probably no other dimension of human experience has been pondered, discussed, debated, analyzed, and dreamed about more than the nature of true love. Love is everywhere—in songs and in books, on televisions and on movie screens. Yet, for all of our thinking and talking, how many of us truly understand love and where can we turn for genuine insight in matters of true love? In The Purpose and Power of Love and Marriage, Dr. Myles Munroe provides the answers to questions surrounding the true nature of love as he also exposes the false images created in our culture. Throughout this book he eloquently illuminates the many facets of love while at the same time tackling the really tough subjects of separation and divorce. This book is sure to become a classic that will last for a lifetime and beyond as it responds gently and practically to those seeking to resolve the challenges of human relationships.

#kindleDEAL ~ "Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe'

Thursday, December 12, 2013


#kindleDEAL

ONLY $2.98 ~ * Limited Time Offer

Desperate is for those who love their children to the depths of their souls but who have also curled up under their covers, fighting back tears, and begging God for help. It's for those who have ever wondered what happened to all their ideals for what having children would be like. For those who have ever felt like all the "experts" have clearly never had a child like theirs. For those who have prayed for a mentor. For those who ever felt lost and alone in motherhood.

In Desperate you will find the story of one young mother's honest account of the desperate feelings experienced in motherhood and one experienced mentor's realistic and gentle exhortations that were forged in the trenches of raising her own four children.

Whether you are a first time mom, or an experienced mom, Desperate will inspire you to be a part of the ultimate goal of the book, to be a part of the no-more-desperate-moms movement.

Included in the Book:
- QR codes and links at the end of each chapter that lead to videos with Sarah Mae and Sally talking about the chapter
- Practical steps to take during the desperate times
- Bible study and journal exercises in each chapter that will lead you to identify ways in which you can grow as a mom
- Mentoring advice for real-life situations
- Q and A section with Sally where she answers readers questions

#free4kindle ~ 'Chasing Superwoman: A Working Mom's Adventures in Life and Faith'


FREE Kindle Book

* Limited Time Offer

The Christian community tends to operate under the assumption that the only women attending church are traditional stay-at-home moms. But in truth, more than 75% of mothers with school-age children work outside the home.

Chasing Superwoman gives these working mothers what they’ve been craving—a funny, intelligent, relevant exploration of what it means to live out a vibrant faith amidst the many demands placed on their time and energy. Chasing Superwoman provides a much needed dialogue (not a formula) about the complex spiritual struggle of the working mother, plus a lot of laughter and encouragement for working women to embrace their busy life and trust God’s grace for getting it all done.
