FREE Kindle Book ~ 'The In-Between: Embracing the Tension Between Now and the Next Big Thing'


FREE Kindle Book

* Limited Time Offer

We're an "instant gratification" generation,
but the trouble is, most change happens gradually.

Most of us spend our lives searching and longing for something more than what is in front of us. Whether it's traveling abroad or chasing cheap (or expensive) thrills, we're all looking for medicine to satisfy our restlessness. And, so often, we're looking in the wrong place.

The In-Between is a call for all of us to accept the importance that waiting plays in our lives. In this spiritual memoir, Jeff Goins reveals the unexpected good that came from his times of waiting. And he encourages us to embrace the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and enjoy the daily mundane, what lies in between the "major" moments.

Moments of breakthrough are not where life's greatest transformation happens; the stuff that God uses to shape us often lies in the in-between. It's the bus stops and layovers and DMV lines and moments of unintentional pause that force us to become better people.

That's not to say there aren't moments of epiphany. There are. It's just that most of us find ourselves living somewhere in the in-between. Learning to live in this tension, to be content in these moments of waiting, may be our greatest struggle...and our greatest opportunity to grow.

FREE Kindle Book ~ 'How to Let Go and Let God'


FREE Kindle Book

* Limited Time Offer

How To Let Go and Let God is a message of personal pain and how the author sought God for the peace only He can promise. Letting go and letting God, means to “cast all your cares” to God. Whether it's a relationship, job, friendship, passing of a loved one, this book will give you suggestions on exactly what you need to do to let go, let God. Are you in an adulterous relationship and need to let go? Did you pray about something and still find yourself worrying about it, even when you thought you let go? Are you wondering how do I let go and let God?

“An awe inspiring book on “How to Let Go and Let God.” Her vulnerability to share personal pain will melt the hearts of every reader. Her genuine understanding that fixes to life’s challenges don’t come without process, will open up the eyes of many. Lastly, Regina demonstrates that by letting go and letting God, we are destined to see His awesome power working on our behalf. “How to Let Go and Let God” is right on time for the days we live in. Individuals, couples and families would do good to read this book.” ~ Pastor Ced Reynolds

If you are surrendering to prayer (having discussions with God) then why are you doubting God? And if you’re doubting what you just prayed, why do it at all? Is it because you’ve been told to pray and it’s just a habit but you don’t really have the faith to believe? Are you willing to go through the process? I believe relief comes based on how you go through the (faith) process, that determines your outcome.

We all at some point in our lives will experience a “Job” moment, maybe not as tragic as his, however, a trial is a trial. It’s at that moment, we must determine whether we choose whether or not to wallow in self pity or seek God for His infinite wisdom and guidance and ultimately, let go.
When we let go (give it over to God), it is only then that will we receive the spiritual guidance we need in order to get past the pain, the unknowing and day in and day out challenges of this world.

Let’s face it, letting go and letting God is not an easy thing to do however, it’s a simple choice. You let go of the things you can’t fix, you let go of the battles that really aren’t yours, you let go of justifying the wrong reason to get selfish gratification.

How To Let Go and Let God, is a message of hope. It describes the pain Baker dealt with and how she got past it. It’s a testimony of God’s grace and mercy, that when we give it all over to Him, He’s faithful to give us the true understanding of what faith really means and how to adapt it in every area of our lives.

FREE Kindle Book ~ 'Long Story Short: 10 Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God'

Tuesday, November 26, 2013


FREE Kindle Book 

* Limited Time Offer

Transform Your Family with Ten Minutes a Day in the Gospel Story

Christian parents know the importance of passing the gospel story on to their children, yet we live in a busy world filled with distractions. Schedules collide, there is homework and yard work and dishes and laundry, the car's oil should be changed, there are phone calls to make and before you know it, everyone is getting to bed late again. The Bible can seem like a long story for an active family to read, but when you break it down into short sections, as Marty Machowski does, family devotions are easy to do.

Long Story Short will help busy parents share with their children how every story in the Old Testament points forward to God's story of salvation through Jesus Christ. You won't find a more important focus for a family devotional than a daily highlighting of the gospel of grace. Clever stories and good moral lessons may entertain and even help children, but the gospel will transform children. The gospel is deep enough to keep the oldest and wisest parents learning and growing all their lives, yet simple enough to transform the heart of the first grader who has just begun to read. Ten minutes a day, five days a week is enough time to pass on the most valuable treasure the world has ever known.

Long Story Short is a family devotional program designed to explain God's plan of salvation through the Old Testament and is suitable for children from preschool through high school.

Grace Is...by Beth Moore

Monday, November 25, 2013


Grace Is...

Grace is an inflated raft that can submerge to the floor of a sea to save you.

Grace is the silver thread that stitches up the shreds of mangled souls.

Grace is the eye that finds us where it refuses, there, to leave us.

Grace calls the waitress to the table and sits her down to wash her feet.

Grace sees underneath the manhole on a street of self-destruction.

Grace is the air to draw a breath in the belly of a whale.

Grace is the courage to stand in the shamed wake of a frightful falling.

Grace is the only fire hot enough to burn down a living hell.

Grace waits with healing in His wings when we’re too mad to pray.

Grace is the gravity that pulls us from depravity.

Grace races us to the Throne when we make haste to repent and always outruns us.

Grace treats us like we already are what we fear we’ll never become.

Grace is the doorpost dripping red when the angel of death grips the knob.

Grace is the stamp that says Ransomed on a life that screams Ruined.

Grace sets a table before me in the presence of my enemy even when my enemy is me.

Grace is the cloak that covers the naked and the palm that drops the rock.

Grace is divine power burgeoning in the absence of all strength.

Grace proves God true and every self-made man a liar for the sake of his own soul.

Grace is the power to do what we cannot do for the Name of Christ to go where it has not been.

Grace is a room of a thousand mirrors, all reflecting the face of Christ.

Grace is…

The eye popping

Knee dropping

Earth quaking

Pride breaking

Dark stabbing

Heart grabbing

Friend mending

Mind bending

Lame walking

Mute talking

Slave freeing

Devil fleeing

Death tolling

Stone rolling

Veil tearing

Glory flaring

Chin lifting

Sin sifting

Dirt bleaching

World reaching

Past covering

Spirit hovering

Child defending

Happy ending

Heaven glancing

Feet dancing…

Power of the Cross.

Jesus Christ, Grace Incarnate.

FREE Christian Book~ 'Songs in the Key of Solomon'


FREE Kindle Edition 

* Limited Time Offer

Ladies, are you tired of trying to engage your man in something he is reluctant to do? Let’s face it: husbands are not normally seen running to bookstores to buy a couple’s devotional.

And guys, are you tired of feeling like the term “devotional” is code for “boring? You may be thinking, Please, not one more thing to check off my daily to-do list. Plus, you and your wife have different views on what intimacy is all about, right?

If either of you is wondering if you’re living more with your “roommate” than your “soulmate,” then this devotional can help you meet on common ground and discover each other in new ways. You won’t even need an alarm clock to wake you when your “devotional time” is finished.

Filled with insights from a real couple on real issues, Songs in the Key of Solomon will get you and your spouse laughing, thinking, sharing, touching, and praying – possibly all during the same reading. Each offering in this devotional is designed to spark connections around issues that matter, so you’ll deepen your emotional, spiritual, and physical unity and ignite new levels of intimacy. (One devotional involves a bathtub and some candles...try not to get stuck on that one page over and over again.)

Here is an invitation to hear the music in your marriage – maybe for the first time…or maybe once again.

FREE Kindle Book ~ 'You Are God's Plan A'


FREE Kindle Edition 

* Limited Time Offer


Every day and everywhere, everyone can live a powerful life of Kingdom impact ... Jesus-style!

One ordinary life making a powerful difference—that's God's amazing "Plan A" on display. Using real-life, riveting stories and a contemporary scriptural lens, Dwight Robertson shows how God's exciting kingdom-building plan takes life—literally—in ordinary individuals.

Robertson explains how God calls and equips average, everyday people—even those who don't think they have anything special to contribute—to creative ministries that are as distinct and unique as the individual. God's Plan A encourages average Christians everywhere to follow the model of Jesus: ministering up close, one life at a time, outside church walls in our everyday lives.

God's Plan A involves all of us ... and there is no Plan B.

FREE Kindle Book ~ 'Wounded Women of the Bible: Finding HOPE When Life Hurts'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Imploding relationships, incapacitating losses, injurious personal mistakes, or spiritual failures—whatever the issue, the wounds are the same. Whether it’s a lapse in judgment by Bathsheba or the moral failure of the women’s ministry leader in your local church; the spiritual insensitivity of Martha or the compulsive obsessions of your church’s care circle chairwoman; the terror of an abandoned single mother like Hagar or the struggling single mother in your prayer group—the time and circumstances are different, but the wounds are equally deep and spiritually devastating.

Dena Dyer and Tina Samples get it. They have their own stories of pain before healing—along with similar experiences of their families and friends. Offering more than pat affirmations or vicarious shoulders to cry on, Dena and Tina delve deep into the shared emotions and injuries that women of all ages have in common—and move readers toward the recovery and healing that only God can provide.

No matter what hurts you’ve experienced, Wounded Women of the Bible proves that God understands and that healing is not only His intention but His delight! This is a book not to be missed!

A Relevant Study of the Book of James. Unlock the Secrets to Living a Victorious Christian Life... the Way God Intended.

James was one of Jesus’ brothers and was very familiar with His teachings. I am certain there were few who knew our Lord better. I am very excited to share this study with you…

The book of James has been called the “Proverbs of the New Testament”. I would venture to say that it is basically a “guidebook” for the Christian life. It is filled with valuable information that teaches us how to live and conduct ourselves in this world—and with others. It is my favorite book in the New Testament—so far.

The Isolation Chamber

Wednesday, November 13, 2013


THE ISOLATION CHAMBER

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

There is a time and place in our walk with God in which He sets us in a place of waiting. It is a place in which all past experiences are of no value. It is a time of such stillness that it can disturb the most faithful if we do not understand that He is the one who has brought us to this place for only a season. It is as if God has placed a wall around us. No new opportunities--simply inactivity.

During these times, God is calling us aside to fashion something new in us. It is an isolation chamber designed to call us to deeper roots of prayer and faith. It is not a comfortable place, especially for a task-driven workplace believer. Our nature cries out, "You must do something," while God is saying, "Be still and know that I am God." You know the signs that you have been brought into this chamber when He has removed many things from your life and you can't seem to change anything. Perhaps you are unemployed. Perhaps you are laid up with an illness.

Most religious people live a very planned and orchestrated life where they know almost everything that will happen. But for people in whom God is performing a deeper work, He brings them into a time of quietness that seems almost eerie. They cannot say what God is doing. They just know that He is doing a work that cannot be explained to themselves or to others.

Has God brought you to a place of being still? Be still and know that He really is God. When this happens, the chamber will open soon after.

~ Os Hillman
