Simply Tuesday by Emily Freeman
(Revell; ISBN 9780800722456; ebook ISBN 9781441223326; $14.99)

We move through the week breathless and bustling, just trying to keep up. But real life happens in the small moments, the kind we find on Tuesday, the most ordinary day of the week. Jesus lived small moments well, slow moments fully, and all moments free. He lives with us still, on all our ordinary days, creating and redeeming the world both in us and through us, one small moment at a time. It’s time to take back Tuesday, to release our obsession with building a life, and believe in the life Christ is building in us.

The Hiding Place, Young Reader’s Edition by Corrie ten Boom, with Elizabeth and John Sherrill
(Chosen Books; ISBN 9780800796273; ebook ISBN 9781441269386; $9.99)

In a special youth edition, Corrie ten Boom’s remarkable story of heroism and faith inspires a new generation of readers. During World War II in the Netherlands, one woman and her family risk their lives to hide Jews in a secret room, a “hiding place” that they built in their watchmaking shop. However, Corrie and her family are betrayed and sent to a concentration camp. This is the story of how faith, hope, and love ultimately triumphed over unthinkable evil.
