  • Mostly What God Does

    $29.99

    Mostly what God does is love you.

    If we could believe this, really believe this, how different would we be? How different would our lives be? How different would our world be?

    If you ever struggle with your connection to God (or whether you even feel connected to a faith at all!), you’re not alone. Especially in our modern world, with its relentless, never-ending news cycle, we can all grapple with such questions. Do we do that alone, with despair and resignation? Or do we make sense of it with God, and with hope? In these uncertain times, could believing in the power of divine love make the most sense?

    In this collection of essays, Savannah Guthrie shares why she believes it does. Unspooling personal stories from her own joys and sorrows as a daughter, mother, wife, friend, and professional journalist, the award-winning TODAY show coanchor and New York Times bestselling author explores the place of faith in everyday life.

    Sharing hard-won wisdom forged from mountaintop triumphs, crushing failures, and even the mundane moments of day-to-day living, Mostly What God Does reveals the transformative ways that belief in God helps us discover real hope for this life and beyond.

    A perfect companion to your morning cup of coffee, this incisive volume–not a memoir but a beautiful tapestry of reflections crafted as a spiritual manual–includes:

    *a fresh, biblically rooted look at six essentials of faith: love, presence, grace, hope, gratitude, and purpose;

    *an honest exploration of questions, doubts, and fears about the love of God;

    *a dose of encouragement for the faith-full, the faith-curious, and the faith-less; and

    *…and much more.

    This deeply personal collection is designed to engage the practical ways that God loves you–not just the world, but you–and to inspire you to venture down a path of faith that is authentic, hopeful, destiny-shaping, and ultimately life-changing.

  • Jesus And Politics

    After reading this book, you will understand how God wants to use Christians to change the world and how you can walk with the Holy Spirit no matter what call He places on your life.

    *Witness the power of prayer as she supported a congressman through a terminal cancer diagnosis during a national campaign.

    *Learn how she set her heart free from bitterness and unforgiveness after a million-dollar congressional race by paying off her opponent’s debt.

    *See how a dream about a congressman from the other side of the political aisle led to an ongoing ministry relationship that has transcended their political differences.

    But this is more than a book of stories. Jesus and Politics is a book about Jesus that equips readers to:

    *Cultivate intimacy with Jesus, even in a hostile culture and amid life’s pressures.
    *Effectively share the gospel, disciple others, and stand up for truth in various settings.
    *Engage in politics and various spheres of government to protect liberty in America.

    Reminding readers that our liberty requires our participation, Jesus and Politics is an indispensable resource for those seeking to make a lasting impact for Christ and embark on a transformative journey to live out their destiny, preserve America, and make a difference for eternity.

  • Pathway To Success

    Renowned Bible teacher and #1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer shows readers how to realign their perspective on success to conform with God’s vision for the kind of life that brings us true purpose and lasting joy.

  • Hope Aint A Hustle

    $18.00

    Sometimes hope can feel like a scam-a swindle, a hustle. But as Christians, our hope cannot disappoint us because it is validated by God himself. In this accessible exploration of the epistle to the Hebrews, Irwyn Ince shows us how placing our confidence in our great high priest, Jesus Christ, changes the way we live in the here and now.

    Sometimes hope can feel like a scam-a swindle, a hustle. You thought it was real, and you bought into it. But then the tables turn, and you feel like you’ve been hustled-like you’ve been had.

    As Christians, we often respond to the brokenness of life as if we do not actually have hope-as if the promises of God are not really certain. But Pastor Irwyn Ince assures us that not only do we have hope, but that hope cannot disappoint us because it is validated by God himself. Hope Ain’t a Hustle is a clear and accessible exploration of the epistle to the Hebrews, urging us to place our confidence in the finished work of our great high priest, Jesus Christ, and showing how that confidence changes the way we live in the here and now.

    It’s not that Christians don’t face grief or anger, disappointment or deep sorrow. It’s that we don’t face them as those “who have no hope.”

  • Land Of My Sojourn

    $24.00

    In the years since leaving local church ministry, I’ve devoted an enormous amount of time and resources to examining the church’s often troubled witness, its ongoing crisis of leadership, and the epidemic of narcissism, abuse, and cover-up that has continued to emerge year after year. This book is about my journey both before and undergirding that work-the shattering of dreams and the grace that restored a broken faith in the aftermath. It’s a story about grace leading me home when I thought all was lost.

    Taken together, my encounters with Peter, Elijah, and Jesus connected to indelible images from my time in Israel and formed a new spiritual landscape in my mind, one with enough gravity to draw my feet back to solid ground. My hope is that as I tell this story you might find echoes of your own. I pray if you’re in the wilderness, you might find that though the territory is a mystery, you are far from alone. Most of all, I pray that you rediscover that Jesus is chasing you like a lover . . . right through heaven’s gates.

  • Dream Brave : A Dare To Live By Faith When You Feel Too Small

    Having met abandoned girls in Nepal who were traumatically evicted repeatedly, she longed to do more. Inspired by their audacious hope, she dared to dream brave–and, at the age of 18, raised $100,000 to build them a home, changing their lives forever.

  • To Know Him By Name

    $22.99

    When you know what name to call on, you know more of whose you are.

    This book will guide me so I can declare and trust that the names of God perfectly describe who He is at His core. I will have peace through the storms of life and learn how to walk in victorious living.

    In today’s culture, names are often little more than identifiers. But in ancient Hebrew culture, names held symbolic and prophetic meaning. This is why when God revealed His names and titles to us in the Scriptures, He was giving us more than interesting information. He was making known to us His character, purposes, and will. In To Know Him by Name, Rabbi Kirt A. Schneider takes readers on a transformative journey to understand the true character of God by laying hold of the revelation found in His Hebrew names and titles.

    In a world where misconceptions about God abound, Rabbi Schneider challenges believers to reconsider their understanding of Him. Instead of seeing God as harsh and vengeful, they will be able to embrace Him for who He truly is-their provider, peace, savior, shepherd, victorious healer, and so much more.

    As they embrace the fullness of who God has declared Himself to be in their lives, readers will be strengthened, peace will abound, and they will experience the victory and abundant blessings that come from knowing Him intimately.

  • Finding Baby Holly

    $29.00

    Holly Marie was forty-two years old the day she found out she was missing.

    At ten months old, Holly Marie was brought to the door of a church by three barefoot women in white robes and head coverings. Adopted by the pastor and raised in a loving Christian home, Holly nevertheless struggled with the ache of not knowing what had happened to her biological parents. She still felt their absence even as she married and started a family of her own.

    When two detectives showed up at the restaurant where she worked and informed her that she had a large family in Florida who had been searching for her for over 40 years, Holly’s past became the reality of her present, and she began the sometimes painful journey of discovering the truth about her origins: Her parents had been brutally murdered, their case still unsolved.

    With the help of law enforcement across four states, forensic genealogists, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and her newly discovered family members, the missing pieces began to come together. Except these-why had her parents been murdered? And who had murdered them? She soon found out that the truth leads not always to answers but sometimes to more questions, that it also brings healing and restoration, and that we must surrender our unknowns to God until, in His perfect timing, all truths are revealed.

    Finding Baby Holly is the true, inspiring story of a wife and mother who was “missing” for over forty years after her parents’ murders, the persistent detectives who never stopped investigating, and the birth family who never lost hope in finding her.

  • 27 Summers : My Journey To Freedom, Forgiveness, And Redemption During My T

    $28.99

    In one of America’s most notorious prisons, a young man sentenced to life without parole miraculously found faith, forgiveness, redemption, and restoration. In 27 Summers Ronald Olivier shares his dramatic and powerful story and offers proof that God can bring healing and hope to even the darkest circumstances.

    As a teenager Ronald Olivier ran wild in the streets of New Orleans, selling drugs, stealing cars, and finally killing someone on what was supposed to be the happiest day of the year–Christmas Day. Facing the consequences of his crime, he remembered what his mother once said. “Baby, if you ever have real trouble, the kind that I can’t get you out of, you can always call on Jesus.” So he did.

    Ron was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Through the agony of solitary confinement and multiple transfers into increasingly dangerous prison environments, Ron kept seeking God for healing and hope. Finally, after being locked up for twenty-seven summers at the notorious Louisiana State Penitentiary–known as Angola–Ron was miraculously released. Remarkably, he became the director of chaplains at Mississippi State Penitentiary. Today, Ron loves to combat hopelessness, wherever he finds it, by saying, “Don’t tell me what God can’t do!”

    Readers will:

    *learn new insights about faith and patience from a man who spent almost three decades in a cruel and violent environment;

    *be encouraged, like Ron, to find grace and forgiveness to overcome the pain of their past; and

    *find hope that God can redeem and restore anyone.

    Ron’s fascinating story brilliantly displays God’s power to transform individuals, families, and communities, reminding us that there truly is nothing God can’t do.

  • I Am Weak I Am Strong

    $18.99

    Even on the days you struggle to stay strong, you can live a resilient and hopeful life.

    After receiving a devastating brain cancer diagnosis, Jay Hewitt had a decision to make: Should he give up on faith or practice what he preached and trust that with God all things are possible? In I Am Weak, I Am Strong, Jay chronicles his journey of turning toward Jesus even when circumstances urged him to turn away. Faith in action for Jay included competing in an IRONMAN triathlon while undergoing cancer treatment. His race was a grand gesture of love for his young daughter–and a call to resilience for all of us.

    *Understand the counterintuitive wisdom of strength in weakness

    For anyone who is searching for hope in anxiety and grief, needs validation and compassion in times of doubt, is curious about faith in the face of death, or longs for a more authentic relationship with God, I Am Weak, I Am Strong will teach you that faith grows from the freedom to doubt.

    Strength grows from realizing how weak we are on our own. And light grows when we follow God’s dreams for us, even through the darkness.

Accentuated by the art of Jodi Hays, Katy’s words lead us through the realization of cancer, the experience of chemotherapy and a mastectomy, relentless rounds of radiation, the uncertainty of ongoing treatment, and what comes after survival.

    Cancer is an overgrowth, a kudzu:

    *Tangling and strangling legitimate life.
    *Chemo is a killing, a burning out:
    *Burning down to ashy carbon, indiscriminately
    *But cancer, did you know that I am a poet?

    Through it all, she shows what it means to struggle in a battered body and to pray to a God who is near to the broken. Join her in this consideration of mortality and witness her persisting trust in God’s unseen ways.

  • Heirloom Rooms : Soulful Stories Of Home

    $35.00

    Erin Napier, designer, host of HGTV’s Home Town, and author of Make Something Good Today, returns with a gorgeously illustrated and one-of-a-kind celebration of the homes we live in and love.

    Our homes are more than an assemblage of bricks and glass, wood and nails.
    They are the keepers of our childhood memories, our milestones, and heartaches. They evolve as we do. As a family grows and eventually retracts, a home can change hands and begin again. We are the chapters in the book of a house. They carry on after we are gone, setting the stage for another story, a new life, new memories.

    From Erin Napier, coauthor with her husband, Ben, of their memoir Make Something Good Today, comes a collection of essays walking us through every room in her home, telling the story of a family’s life, of the days that made their home the place she longs for when she’s away.

    We learn about when they became the new owners of Erin’s dream house from childhood in downtown Laurel, Mississippi, and explore the beautiful homes of family, friends, and projects past in photographs.

    With essays that evoke her Southern home, photos of the beautifully imperfect, lived-in spaces of her family and friends, and prompts for us to document our own homemade memories, Heirloom Rooms feels like walking through the front door of the collected and loved-in houses Erin and Ben are known for revitalizing in HGTV’s #1 hit series, Home Town.

  • Brave Love : Making Space For You To Be You

    $19.99

    Women today feel pressure to be the best wife, mom, and professional possible–often at the expense of their own identity. But what if you could experience deep peace–knowing you are loved right now, just as you are? In Brave Love, the founder of the multimillion-dollar company Lisa Leonard Designs inspires women to find themselves again amidst the noise and competing demands of real life.

    This paperback edition includes a new foreword written by Stephen Leonard, exclusive discussion questions for personal reflection, and a Q&A between Lisa and Steve.

    Brave Love is about what it means to be human, how it feels to be broken and afraid, and what happens when we dare to love deeply. Join Lisa on a journey where you will discover you are worthy and lovable just as you are. You don’t have to try harder or be better. You don’t have to prove yourself, and you don’t have to make others okay. In this freedom you will find more peace and more joy. Most importantly, you will learn that as you stop trying to be everything to everyone, you will love others better.

    Lisa Leonard shares her story of finding truth and wholeness in the midst of life’s competing demands. When she said her marriage vows, she was determined to be the best wife she could be. When her first son was born with a severe disability, Lisa promised herself she would always be the mother he needed. When she began her jewelry business, Lisa committed to giving it her all.

    Over the years, the exhaustion of trying to be the perfect wife, mother, and businesswoman took its toll. Lisa knew it wasn’t working. She wanted to change things, but how? Everyone depended on her. So she kept going, kept pushing, kept trying to prove she could do it all. Until one evening, in tears and desperation, Lisa realized that she could no longer be everything to everyone. Somewhere along the way, she had lost herself.

    In Brave Love, Lisa shares her story of losing–and finding–her own voice in the clamor of family, career, and internal pressure to prove herself.

  • Longing To Belong

    $19.99

    Growing up in the only Korean family in a Minnesota town, Michelle Lee-Barnewall has felt the pain of racial discrimination and the resulting identity confusion that follows. Through the telling of her personal story, she seeks to transcend the current divide between those who emphasize social justice concerns and those who believe these concerns compromise the core of the gospel.

    A Longing to Belong integrates a biblical worldview and personal experience on the topic of race and race relations. Lee-Barnewall writes as both a New Testament scholar and an Asian American who has personally experienced what it means to be racially marginalized, seeking to filter those experiences through the lens of the New Testament and what it has to say to us today about our Christian calling and our identity in Christ as a member of his body.

    A Longing to Belong spurs readers to consider what it means to live as racially distinctive people in a fallen world that abounds in misunderstanding and pain and is in desperate need of the gospel of grace, especially as manifested in the redeemed Christian community. This memoir extends the discussion beyond academic discussion of race relations and personal narratives by demonstrating how theology and experience are necessarily intertwined and mutually contribute to our understanding of race and our relationships with each other. Rather than arguing for one “side,” Lee-Barnewall shares examples rooted in her own experience in light of an overarching kingdom theology.

  • Average Joe : The Inspirational True Story Of Coach Joe Kennedy

    $24.99

    The football coach who fought all the way to Supreme Court for his right to pray shares his inspiring story of courage, redemption, and grace.

    When Coach Joe Kennedy started offering a prayer on the field after each high school football game, the school district tried to shut him down, launching a seven-year legal battle that went to the Supreme Court–twice. In June 2022, he won.

    Average Joe is the story of an unlikely champion of religious freedom. A former atheist, Kennedy never imagined he’d lead the defense of Americans’ First Amendment rights. He certainly didn’t intend to be at odds with his wife, who was the school district’s personnel director. But his love for God and country and his never-say-die courage landed this former Marine in the fight of his life.

    The victory in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District opened the door for thousands of previously settled cases regarding public prayer to be reexamined with a friendlier eye to personal religious expression.

    Average Joe: The Coach Joe Kennedy Story is a compelling personal account of his troubled youth, what he learned in the Marines, the lessons he instills in his players, his faith in God, and his love for his family. It’s a story that will inspire readers to live more boldly.
