FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow is the story of an unusual woman, Agnes Sparrow. No longer able or willing to leave her home, where she is cared for by her long-suffering sister Griselda, Agnes has committed her life to the one thing she can do—besides eat. Agnes Sparrow prays and when Agnes prays things happen, including major miracles of the cancer, ulcer-healing variety along with various minor miracles not the least of which is the recovery of lost objects and a prize-winning pumpkin. The rural residents of Bright’s Pond are so enamored with Agnes they plan to have a sign erected on the interstate that reads, “Welcome to Bright’s Pond, Home of Agnes Sparrow.” This is something Agnes doesn’t want and sends Griselda to fight city hall. Griselda’s petitions are shot down and the sign plans press forward until a stranger comes to town looking for his miracle from Agnes. The truth of Agnes’s odd motivation comes out when the town reels after the murder of a beloved community member. How could Agnes allow such evil in their midst? Didn’t she know? Well, the prayers of Agnes Sparrow have more to do with Agnes than God. Agnes has been praying to atone for a sin committed when she was a child. After some tense days, the townsfolk, Griselda, and Agnes decide they all need to find their way back to the true source of the miracles—God.

FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

In the Kingdom of God, each person’s destiny is the playing out of that person’s unique identity as a son of God, regardless of gender, race, or background. To embrace one’s identity as a son, one must change his prevailing culture.
In this season, God is building His House in the earth, with the relationship of fathers and sons as its foundation. Effecting cultural changes requires a trans-generational effort, in which a change in the culture is but one of the first steps of a long journey to reestablish, fully, the House of God. This journey is meant to reposition man in the relationship with God as Father, as God intended from the beginning. The purpose of repositioning humankind as sons and heirs to God is to establish the family of God on the earth and to display the love of God, through his sons, to all of creation. Whereas the destiny of each son of God is vitally important, the entire purpose of God can only, ultimately, be accomplished through the corporate form—the House of God.

FREE Kindle Edition

“… in Your book all my days were recorded, even those which were purposed before they had come into being.” —Psalm 139:16
Young Cameron Vaux’s mind is slipping. Memories of his wife, killed two years earlier in a car accident, are vanishing just as his dad predicted they would. Memories he knows he has to remember. His father tells Cameron that to save his mind he must find “the book with all days in it” —the past and future record of every soul on earth. When an obscure clue leads Cameron to a small central Oregon town, he meets enigmatic Taylor Stone, a possible guide to finding the book who seems
to carry secrets far deeper than anyone imagines. Local hotshot TV personality. Ann Bannister thinks the legend of the book is a farce, but she has her reasons to join Cameron’s search anyway. Finally, there is fanatical New Age guru Jason Judah, who will stop at nothing to find the book of days before Cameron does.

Music from the movie Facing the Giants

The power of change is in giving my life

And laying it down, down at Your feet

Right here in this moment,

Lift up to You and say

In this spectacular new series, Morgan, an acclaimed writer of historical and futuristic romances, turns her deft pen to the Christian market to reflect a personal change. Abigail Stanton, who recently lost her husband and child, moves to Culdee Creek to become a housekeeper for Conor MacKay, a man whose previous housekeepers warmed more than dinner. Abby makes it clear that she won't tolerate any disreputable advances on his part, but she feels God led her to this ranch and this family for a purpose. As she grows to love Conor and his daughter, her faith inspires Conor to believe that there might just be something to this idea of religion. This wonderful start is for all collections.

Unredeemed ~ Places Where Grace Is

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Unredeemed ~ Selah

The cruelest word
The coldest heart
The deepest wound
The endless dark
The lonely ache
The burning tears
The bitter nights
The wasted years
Life breaks and falls apart
But we know these are...

Where grace is
Soon to be so amazing
They may be unfulfilled
They may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered
Is laid before the Lord
Just watch and see
It will not be

For every choice
That led to shame
And all the love
That never came
For every vow
That someone broke
And every life
That gave up hope
We live in the shadow of the fall
But the cross says these are all - just...

Where grace is
Soon to be so amazing
They may be unfulfilled
They may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered
Is laid before the Lord
Just watch and see
It will not be

Where grace is
Soon to be so mazing
They may be unfulfilled
They may be unrestored
You never know the miracle
The Father has in store
Just watch and see
It will not be

FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Eleven-year-old Sarah Stone is lonely in a mansion amidst butlers, nannies, housekeepers, and a father who is too busy for her. She is angry at the world. On the other side of town, in a slum called the Sink, Jared Roberts and his gang barely survive broken families and a hardscrabble existence. Jared, too, is angry, and intends to do something about it. He eyes Sarah's mansion for a pre-Christmas burglary that will show the world who he really is.

Into this mix comes a mysterious little man named Nicholas, who intrigues, yet scares, Sarah and Jared. Against incredible doubt and cynicism, Nicholas tries to guide the two youths away from their anger and the suffering that will follow, only to realize he can not move them. Finally, he whisks them to another time and place where a Christmas long ago teaches them the true meaning of life in a way they never imagined.

MARY'S SON is a modern tale of the fears and passions of youth overcome by the wonder of the real Christmas story.

31 Days of Depression

Depression has many faces and many symptoms...
and it will affect everyone at some point in their lives.

You may be experiencing depression yourself;
or you may know someone who is.

Recently I came across a new series entitled 31 Days of Depression
 wriiten by Melinda Todd from Trailing After God.

In 31 Days of Depression, Melinda shares exactly what depression is, healthy ways to combat the darkness and she also openly shares about  her own personal testimony of how depression has affected her life.

Day 1:  Warning!  I Don't Care!

Day 2:  Step Out of Yourself

Day 3:  Prepare for the Journey

Day 4:  Can I Be Depressed and a Christian?

Day 5:  Give Up

Day 6:  Get Lost

Day 7:  Worship

Day 8:  Laugh

Day 9:  Reach Out

Day 10:  Journal the Journey

Day 11:  Read

Day 12:  Guard Your Self

Day 13:  Tune It Around

Day 14:  Baby Steps to Joy

Day 15:  Be Thankful Then Act

Day 16:  Escape With Friends

Day 17:  Learn Something New or Do Something Old

Day 18:  Encourage Someone Else

Day 19:  Monitor Who You Fellowship With

Day 20:  Get a Mentor

Day 21:  Don't Give in to the Mean Girl

Day 22:  Set Boundaries

Day 23:  Counter the Lies with Truth

Day 24:  Get into a Community

Day 25:  Move It!

Day 26:  Get Physical

Day 27:  Natural Help for Depression

Day 28:  Dear Mel Vol. 27

Day 29:  Seasons of Depression

Day 30:  Deal With Your Past

Day 31:  Dealing with Depression

What I liked most about this series is that Melinda spreads the information out over 31 days.
She gives you a topic to chew on, as well as time to implement what she has shared.

The advice is generic and may not be for everyone...and,
it is NOT intended to be professional or medical advice.

Her goal was to provide you with some tools for the battle;
and I believe she has done just that!!!
