God Uses Broken Things

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;
for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;
we must die to one life before we can enter another.
~ Anatole France
Change often comes out of periods of brokenness. 
But God uses broken things:
broken soil to produce a crop,
broken clouds to give rain,
broken grain to give bread,
and broken bread to give strength.

(c) Maria Egilsson ~ Songs of the Beloved

Prayer, A Heavenly Invitation

Tuesday, January 29, 2013


“Prayer is a window that God has placed
in the walls of our world.
Leave it shut and the world is a cold, dark house.
Throw back the curtains and see His light.
Open the window and hear His voice.
Open the window of prayer
and invoke the presence of God into your world.”

Run Your Race


A prize racehorse trains with blinders on. Blinders allow the horse to stay focused and not to be spooked by distractions or by the maneuvers of the other horses and jockeys.

When the apostle Paul encouraged Timothy (and us) to run the race set before us and to keep our eyes on the prize, he was urging us to stay focused by saying, “You aren’t the first; you won’t be the last. You can do this . . . and heaven is gonna be worth it!”

Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, 
let us throw off everything that hinders 
and the sin that so easily entangles, 
and let us RUN WITH PERSEVERANCE
 the race marked out for us.
~ Hebrews 12:1

REAL-LIFE CHALLENGE: 
What are the things, people, or fears distracting you today? 
Write them down, and work on a game plan to overcome them. 
Like a racehorse, condition your life daily for the race. 
Ask God to help.

(c)  Toni Birdsong, author of More Than a Bucket List

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Powerful Scripture Based Prayer'


FREE kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Prayer is humanity's means by which to communicate more fully with our all-powerful and loving Creator. Praying to the God of the entire universe unlocks a deeper connection through our Christian faith and allows us to go boldly before His throne. There, He listens to our needs and though we often do not know it, He answers us in either very simple or dramatic ways. He is a faithful and loving God, even if we often go through life with little thought or regard for our Father in Heaven.

Discover just how powerful the word of God is and learn how to apply the scriptures to your prayer life to unleash the power of our mighty God. You will no longer read scriptures without seeing the massive power behind each word God spoke and the men of God recorded. The Holy Bible is our handbook for living a victorious life through Jesus Christ, and a mighty weapon against the evil this world espouses through what has become commonly accepted sinful desires. There is no better security for your family than that provided by the spoken Word of the Lord our God.

It is my hope that while reading this book, you will come to understand, as I have, that praying is simply a conversation with God. You will learn to be bold and come to know God better through your words and through reading His Living Word; the Bible. This book will take you through my life-changing experiences with God as a Christian believer and as a Holy Spirit led woman. The times I have found myself at what I thought was the basement of my existence instead became the pinnacle of my need to seek and find my Heavenly Father. It is my prayer that you will also find yourself lifted by the very words spoken by God and printed in the Bible so that you begin to see His will become apparent in every layer of your life.

FREE Audiobook ~ 'Compelling Interest'


FREE Christian Audiobook Download of the Month

Expires January 31st, 2013

Is a fetus a person?

Is “pro-choice” really a neutral position?


For 40 years since the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the abortion debate has been highly charged and politicized. Questions like these—and passionate but widely varying answers—have become the common language of the public dialogue on this issue. Yet behind the scenes of this historic case are other intriguing questions:

· How did the Supreme Court come to be involved in the abortion debate?
· Was language manipulated to affect the outcome?
· What was the moral basis underlying the decision?

In Compelling Interest, author Roger Resler draws on original sources, including the actual transcripts for oral arguments, the majority and minority opinions, and comments by the lawyers and others involved to take a careful look at the real story behind the historic Roe v. Wade decision.

Resler includes conversations with experts, including sociology professor Dr. William Brennan, the late Dr. Mildred Jefferson and Dr. Carolyn Gerster who co-founded the National Right to Life Committee, prolific author and speaker Randy Alcorn, bioethics professor Dr. Gerard Magill, perinatologist Dr. James Thorp, and photojournalist Michael Clancy.

This carefully researched book speaks with a thought-provoking, balanced voice that stands out from the usual partisan rhetoric on the topic.

Christian Contest ~ 'The One Year Devotions for Women'

Monday, January 21, 2013



Contest closes January 23rd, 2013
Peace—don’t we all want just a little more peace in our lives? Peace in relationships. Peace at home and at work. Peace from painful memories. Release from pressures and demands that threaten to crush us. Is there a way to find peace in all these areas? What if we could build a moment of peace into every day of the year, opening our hearts to the peace God has promised? Wouldn’t it be great to live with less fear and anxiety, and with more confidence and joy?

The One Year Devotions for Women: Becoming a Woman at Peace is a chance to spend time with God every day, to breathe deeply and grab onto the kind of peace that only God can offer—a peace far richer and more satisfying than anything we can hope or imagine. Each of these uplifting devotions includes a key NLT Scripture verse, a devotional reading, and a suggested prayer for connecting with God.

FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

In many ways, Kasey Van Norman has suffered more heartbreak than one woman can bear. Growing up, she endured her parents’ divorce, date rape, and years of addiction to sex, cutting, and eating disorders. As an adult, Kasey has endured a painful miscarriage; the heartbreak (and restoration) of infidelity; a cancer diagnosis; rejection by her friends, church, and community; and her mother’s death from cancer. But at the end of this twisting path of sorrow, Kasey walked out of the wilderness and into a place of God’s merciful and miraculous healing and redemption.

In Named by God, Kasey shares her story of God’s infinite grace and compassion so that others might learn from her experience as they encounter a depth of Jesus like never before!

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Gospel Centered Productivity'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Productivity is a God-given gift. God created us to produce work, art, and culture. We have work to do, and that is a good thing.

What happens when productivity becomes MORE, than a means to an end? What happens when productivity goes to unhealthy places?

In Gospel-Centered Productivity, we will explore how to be productive while not losing our souls. How to be productive, while building our identity on God, and not on productivity itself?

We will explore other topics such as: How to use media in healthy ways? How to enjoy a job that may feel like a dead end? How to rest from productivity? ...And so much more...

Can we still be productive and honor God at the same time? I think so. Pick up Gospel Centered Productivity and begin to see productivity through a new lens... the lens of the gospel.
