God’s Word for You: An Invitation to Find the Nourishment Your Soul Needs

Charles R. Swindoll | ISBN: 9781496430229 (LeatherLike) | March 6, 2018

No one can deny the importance of bodily nutrition. We all know what it’s like to eat an unbalanced diet, consume too many sweets, or skip a meal altogether. We feel sick or light-headed, or we become irritated, edgy, and even depressed. This is the body’s way of letting us know that it’s lacking sufficient nourishment. The same is true when it comes to spiritual matters. Without sufficient and regular nutrition, we become shallow and selfish, more demanding, and less gentle. We react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition. God’s Word for You is a reminder that God is here, for you, in the Bible. He wants to revive you, refresh you, and guide you. This book is for everyone whose soul is thirsty and who is yearning for more.

We Are One: Walking by Faith with the Persecuted Church

Johnnie Moore | ISBN: 9781496419507 (hardcover) | March 6, 2018

We are witnessing one of the most severe and unrelenting attempts at Christian persecution in church history. It’s happening in our time and on our watch. This isn’t a time for churches to dedicate one Sunday a year to praying for the persecuted church—every Christian church in every place ought to be praying without pause for our brothers and sisters in Christ who sit in the path of ISIS. It’s not enough to offer vague prayers for Christians who face life-threatening situations in the Middle East and beyond. This type of crisis happens once in a millennium, and it demands that we pray as we never have before. We Are One guides the reader through 40 days of intercession for today’s persecuted church, helping us to pray with information, purpose, and confidence.

This collection of heartwarming vignettes, inspiring quotes, and simple prayers makes a perfect gift for moms of young children or mothers-to-be.

Spread Too Thin: Opting Out of Frantic Living. Opting In to Lasting Peace.

Ellen Miller | ISBN: 9781496419415 (softcover) | April 3, 2018

At every stage of life and within every demographic—single ladies to those who are married, working gals to stay-at-home moms, freshly minted college graduates to retirees—there is a resounding chant: “I’m overwhelmed. I’m exhausted. I’m spread too thin.” From daybreak to sunset, many of us frantically cross items off a to-do list as long as our leg—only to fall into bed at the end of the day feeling unproductive, unfulfilled, and sometimes even inconsequential in the grand scheme of life. Jesus said, “I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.” He did not lay down his life that we might spend our waking moments stressed out and diluted. Jesus died for our sins that we might have an eternal life after our time on earth is done, but he also came that we might live a rich, meaningful, glorious life while we’re here. Written specifically for women who care deeply, love unconditionally, extend themselves selflessly, and work tirelessly, Spread Too Thin will open an honest exchange about the things that have us wrung out, and will help us find the abundant life Jesus promises.
