FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Jesus in the Present Tense: The I AM Statements of Christ'

Thursday, February 28, 2013


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

In Jesus in the Present Tense, Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe explores the “I AM” statements of God—from His burning bush conversation with Moses, to His powerful reassurances to the Israelites, to Jesus’s startling claim to be the Light of the World.

Many Christians find themselves mired in past regrets or future fears, but the name of God itself reminds readers that God wants them to live in the present. The more readers understand and apply God’s I AM statements from the Old and New Testaments, the more they will realize God’s peace and joy. Then they will be free to live, serve, and know God more richly in the present tense—which is just where He wants them to be.

Where is God in the midst of this? You’ve probably heard that question or perhaps asked it yourself. In the battle for your joy, your marriage, your finances, your health, an emptiness creeps in. Where is the peace You promised, God? Bo Stern has been there—and is still there. Yet in studying the battles in Scripture, she came to a startling conclusion: God is using these fierce fights in our lives for an astonishing purpose.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'A Life of Gratitude'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

During a season of transition in my life, I found myself overwhelmed with negative emotions like self-pity and a complaining spirit. It was as if a dark cloud had descended over me. I prayed and asked God for wisdom on how to overcome these negative emotions. As I did, I sensed Him leading me to do a 21 day gratitude challenge.

Over the course of the 21 days, God began to change me as I spent intentional time being grateful for all I had been given. I did this through writing in my journal each day and also sending a hand-written thank you note to someone different each day. This also led me to writing out 21 prayers of gratitude and compiling 21 stories of gratitude.

I want to share what I learned with you in the pages of this book which includes:
21 Days of Gratitude Challenge
21 Prayers of Gratitude
21 Stories of Gratitude

Jesus Calling ~ Real Affirmation


STOP JUDGING and evaluating yourself, for this is not your role. Above all, stop comparing yourself with other people. This produces feelings of pride or inferiority; sometimes, a mixture of both. I lead each of My children along a path that is uniquely tailor-made for him or her. Comparing is not only wrong; it is also meaningless.

Don’t look for affirmation in the wrong places: your own evaluations, or those of other people. The only source of real affirmation is My unconditional Love. Many believers perceive Me as an unpleasable Judge, angrily searching out their faults and failures. Nothing could be farther from the truth! I died for your sins, so that I might clothe you in My garments of salvation. This is how I see you: radiant in My robe of righteousness. When I discipline you, it is never in anger or disgust; it is to prepare you for face-to-Face fellowship with Me throughout all eternity. Immerse yourself in My loving Presence. Be receptive to My affirmation, which flows continually from the throne of grace.

Retailers Choice Award winner, 2012

From the creators of Fireproof comes an inspiring new story about everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift farther and farther away from them. Will they be able to find a way to serve and protect those who are most dear to them? When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God . . . and to their children?

Where was God? Bobbi Molinsky's comfortable life is shattered when a forwarded email from her husband's account lands in her inbox. The email teases, "My whole evening is free again." After an angry confrontation with Chuck, she is left with the broken remains of an eighteen year marriage. Where is God? Bobbi agrees forgiving Chuck is the right thing, the God-honoring thing to do, but it leaves her empty and isolated. Teaching her second-graders is a burden. Taking care of her boys saps all her energy. It seems God Himself has walked away, leaving her to struggle alone. Is God faithful? Bobbi can't deny the transformation in Chuck, but genuine forgiveness requires trust, and trust is a risk she's not willing to take. Can she let go of her deepest, most primal fears and save her marriage?

Stop Pretending Everything is Fine and Change Your Life!

Monday, February 18, 2013



In this book, Geri Scazzero takes you on a life-changing journey
of 8 things you need to quit in order to transform your life.

Each chapter of this book takes you on a heart-felt journey
 to discover what area you may need to "quit" in your life:

1.  Quit Being Afraid of What Others Think
2.  Quit Lying
3.  Quit Dying to the Wrong Things
4.  Quit Denying Anger, Sadness and Fear
5.  Quit Blaming
6.  Quit Over-functioning
7.  Quit Faulty Thinking
8.  Quit Living Someone Else's Life
How do you know when it's time to quit?

Take this quick assessment at Geri's website:
To learn more about the author,
visit http://geriscazzero.org/

You can also connect on Facebook:
 http://www.facebook.com/GeriScazzero


As you read about Geri's personal account of "quitting some things",
you will find yourself examining your own heart too.
You will be encouraged to uproot (quit) some things
and replace them with healthier choices. As you break free,
you will experience true transformation and wellness in your soul.

Isn't it time for you to live an authentic life in Christ?

Break FREE!!


I've read it a couple of times now;
and each time The Lord has encouraged me
to examine my heart further.


It was first published as I Quit!:
Stop Pretending Everything Is Fine and Change Your Life


I do have to say...I prefer the first book title better,
as the whole idea behind the book is to 'quit' some things.
The title is different, but the content is exactly the same.

If you are wanting to grow in your relationship with Christ,
Geri's testimony of 'breaking free' will encourage your heart.

If you're ready to 'quit' some things, this book is a great start!

Special thanks to Rick Roberson and The B & B Media Group
for providing me a complimentary copy to review.

Jesus Calling ~ Trust Me Enough

Friday, February 15, 2013


TRUST ME ENOUGH to spend ample time with Me, pushing back the demands of the day. Refuse to feel guilty about something that is so pleasing to Me, the King of the universe. Because I am omnipotent, I am able to bend time and events in your favor. You will find that you can accomplish more in less time, after you have given yourself to Me in rich communion. Also, as you align yourself with My perspective, you can sort out what is important and what is not.

Don’t fall into the trap of being constantly on the go. Many, many things people do in My Name have no value in My kingdom. To avoid doing meaningless works, stay in continual communication with Me. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Why Holiness Matters'

Monday, February 11, 2013


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

When was the last time you thought about holiness?

God's specific command for holiness: "Be holy, for I am holy," (in Leviticus 11, 19, and
in 1st Peter 1) is an idea rephrased and repeated throughout the Bible.

But because of our misunderstandings of sin, holiness,
innocence, and God, His command rings hollow in
the action of our faith.

-Sin (we view it as either inevitable
or we just go with it)
-Holiness (we view it as unrealistic
or we ignore it because there's no immediate payoff)
-Innocence
(we view it as subordinate to "experiencing the world"), and
-God
(we often think he'll probably let us down-just like so many people do).

But,
what if there was a different way?

By entering into God's deep affection, He rewrites our wayward story into a narrative of unwavering devotion,
a living, breathing Christian faith distinguished by God's inner-working. In Why Holiness Matters, Tyler Braun tells the story of the Millennial Generation and our need for rescue from our own shame into the light and love of living in
God's presence.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Prayers from the Pews: The Power of Praying for Your Church'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

What if the problem with the church isn’t what we are doing but rather what we are not doing?

In Prayers from the Pews, Teri Lynne Underwood explores the connection between embracing Scripture, evaluating personal experience, and experiencing the power in praying for your church. Acknowledging the difficulties and short-comings of the “institution of church” while challenging believers to invest in the study of the early church and harness the power of prayer, Teri Lynne brings a voice of hope to the often-hopeless landscape of the modern church experience.

Prayers from the Pews is ideal for individuals seeking guidance in praying for their churches as well as small groups who want to experience the power of prayer in their own congregation. More than another study of prayer, Prayers from the Pews is an invitation to pray.

Features of Prayers from the Pews:

Short chapters with discussion questions
Thirty prayers based on the Book of Acts
40-Day reading guide for Acts
