Look outside of yourself and what do you see? A world that is shaken, taken out at the knees. We all stand waiting, breath hitched in our throat For a bomb in a subway, a plane, or a boat. What's coming next? Who will die? Can it stop? Living in fear for the next shoe to drop. If terrorists come or the world starts to flood, We can rest easy. We were bought with His blood. All we must do is ask for God's grace, For Him to come in and take His rightful place As the Lord of our lives and the King of our hearts, And that very instant His covering starts. He'll go before us and stop hell in its tracks. His hands will protect us from Satan's attacks. You might think I'm crazy and that this isn't true, But with the way the world is, what have you to lose? In Fierce Hope Savanna Hartman describes a world that has never been more broken and lost than it is today. People are hurting and want something authentic and real to hold on to. Savanna makes a compelling case that true hope can be found only in Christ. Fierce hope, despite the chaos that is all around you, is within your reach right now.

True beauty is not about how you look… but how you live. Women are constantly bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important than who we are. It’s time for a clarion call back to the truth. Journey with gifted storyteller Kim Meeder as she encourages women to see that true value is defined by our Creator and that our worth has a purpose of eternal proportions. Real beauty isn’t a look, it’s an action. It can be found by making one crucial, life-defining choice—to lay down personal ambitions and selfish desires, pick up your sword of encouragement, and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. As you do, fierce beauty is revealed—along with lasting value, fulfillment, and joy. In Fierce Beauty, Kim shares inspiring true stories from her own life of adventure, love, and loss—including her parents’ shocking death when she was nine years old and her struggles with self acceptance, knowing God, and standing for Him. Through it all, you’ll discover life lessons about trust, transformation, surrender, forgiveness, and genuine purpose. Ultimately, life comes down to one question: Will you serve yourself or your King? Includes discussion guide for individuals or groups. “You were not created to be a princess of entitlement but a warrior, fighting to bring love and hope to the world.” – Kim Meeder
What does the Bible say on the topic of suicide? What does it not say? Lloyd, now professor emeritus of biblical and theological studies at Gordon College, Mass., began to ask these questions after a daughter-in-law died by suicide. He embarked on a thorough canvassing of the scriptures and church history on this topic, which helped him on his grief journey. Gwendolyn found solace in writing out her responses and thoughts in moving, sensitive poetry. Their combined efforts meld the pain and poignancy of the devastating experience of a family member's suicide. Fierce Goodbye is first and foremost a penetrating account of a family dealing with suicide, and offers solid guidance for those who worry about the eternal fate of a loved one. It also provides a reliable and readable summary of Christian thinking about suicide, useful for pastors, counselors, students, and teachers.
Love is easy to give when you are getting it back. Are we still called to God’s plan of how to love when we are getting none in return? Shauna Shanks’s brave journey through obedience reveals the outcome of when we dare to follow God’s ludicrous outline for love as described in 1 Corinthians 13. Wrecked with news of her husband’s affair and his request for a divorce, Shauna finds herself urgently faced with a decision. Does she give up and divorce her husband and move on, or does she try to fight for her marriage? The former choice seems to contradict God’s plan for how to love, such as “love never gives up,” “love is patient,” and “love is kind.” Taking God at His word and assuming the love chapter was really meant to be followed literally word by word, she not only finds herself falling in love with her spouse again, but also falling in love with Jesus, which changes everything. First Corinthians 13 presents an audacious, illogical, and irrational context of how to love, meant to be applied to every marital context not just the fairytale marriage. If God’s instructions seem illogical and audacious, you might just expect the same kind of results in return! This book is not air-brushed. It was written in the midst of the author’s deepest trauma, and she purposefully did not edit out her mistakes and failures during that season. This book will resonate with women who do not feel like the picture-perfect Christian woman with the fairytale life and marriage. A Fierce Love is the story of a train wreck and reaching out to God not in the calm but in the chaos and finding hope for the future.

A tale with twists and turns that leaves the mouth wide open and a story that leaves a great impact in our current society that is doomed with corruption.

“Five years into ‘wedded bliss,’ I confessed to Kim that I no longer loved her. We were stuck in a destructive relationship pattern we now refer to as the ‘fierce woman/fearful man’ cycle, and I had lost all hope for a peaceful marriage…” — LeRoy Wagner What if I’m laid-back and my wife is… not? How can I lead when I feel emasculated? I’m not sure I love my wife anymore. What happened? If you find yourself asking questions like these, LeRoy can relate. In Men Who Love Fierce Women, he is gut-honest about his failures and frustrations as a husband, the realizations that saved his marriage,* and the requirements God places on every husband, laid-back or not. With their insights combined, Kim and LeRoy equip men to rise up, handle conflict, love their wife, and lead their marriage, regardless of who has the stronger personality. Includes reflection questions at the end of every chapter, plus an appendix for addressing conflict. *Kim and LeRoy’s interview on Focus on the Family, in which they discuss their marriage and Kim’s book Fierce Women, aired twice and was voted the #1 segment of 2015, prompting the publication of this book.

The Fierce Urgency of Now links musical improvisation to struggles for social change, focusing on the connections between the improvisation associated with jazz and the dynamics of human rights struggles and discourses. The authors acknowledge that at first glance improvisation and rights seem to belong to incommensurable areas of human endeavor. Improvisation connotes practices that are spontaneous, personal, local, immediate, expressive, ephemeral, and even accidental, while rights refer to formal standards of acceptable human conduct, rules that are permanent, impersonal, universal, abstract, and inflexible. Yet the authors not only suggest that improvisation and rights can be connected; they insist that they must be connected. Improvisation is the creation and development of new, unexpected, and productive cocreative relations among people. It cultivates the capacity to discern elements of possibility, potential, hope, and promise where none are readily apparent. Improvisers work with the tools they have in the arenas that are open to them. Proceeding without a written score or script, they collaborate to envision and enact something new, to enrich their experience in the world by acting on it and changing it. By analyzing the dynamics of particular artistic improvisations, mostly by contemporary American jazz musicians, the authors reveal improvisation as a viable and urgently needed model for social change. In the process, they rethink politics, music, and the connections between them.

Yet she’s discovered the beautiful secret that picked her up from the rocky riverbed and brought her to the lush landscape: fierce hope in Jesus.

Do your roots thirst for what can only be found deep in the Soil of the Almighty?Do you long to satisfy a deeper yearning? Then you are invited to embark on a 21-day adventure to leave the safe path in order to learn to embrace a relentless God.
This is FIERCE. This is pushing past fear. It is understanding the FOUNDATION on which we have placed our faith. It is INVITING Jesus into every space and every moment. It is living our lives on purpose and EXPERIENCING his closeness in new and profound ways. It is cause to REJOICE as we are no longer stuck or shy or stranded at the side. It is finally knowing our CALLING and living it to the fullest, and it is ENLARGING our territory because our Jesus offers us a life of abundance. We begin. We begin to take FIERCE, one letter and one step at a time. You and I on this journey, looking across the ice, standing on it, or hearing the whispers of well-done from the other side. Wherever you are, we are here together holding hearts in the commitment to know Him more, love Him better and pursue the path He is painting. Know He is with us. We will endeavor to learn more about Him as we walk, hear more from Him and experience His presence. He literally does “stand at the door and knock”. Let’s open it together, you and me.
Can you have a strong personality and still be a godly wife? YES! Do you ever get the idea that being a godly wife means you need to be a mousy doormat? Be as unnoticeable as a doorknob? Or have a personality transplant? Fierce Women: The Power of a Soft Warrior smashes that idea. No matter whether you’re an extrovert or more introverted, Kimberly Wagner believes women are created to be a compelling force. You may not see yourself as beautifully fierce or even slightly strong, but what if God has placed a powerful fierceness within you, within every woman? Kim admits her fierceness became a source of conflict in her marriage, but the relationship dynamic totally changed when she discovered her fierce strengths could be used to encourage and inspire her husband. She invites you to come alongside as she takes an honest look at a destructive relationship dynamic and casts a vision for the transformation God can bring to troubled marriages. A True Woman Book; the goal of the True Woman publishing line is to encourage women to: Discover, embrace, and delight in God's divine design and mission for their lives Reflect the beauty and heart of Jesus Christ to their world Intentionally pass the baton of Truth on to the next generation Pray earnestly for an outpouring of God's Spirit in their families, churches, nation and world
In this prophetic collection of sermons, pastor, judge, and prophet Wendell L. Griffen challenges followers of Jesus, those social justice-minded pastors, congregational leaders, religious educators, grassroots activists and advocates, and other faithful persons, to ponder these questions: ¢¢ What does it mean to be a "prophetic follower of Jesus"? ¢¢ How will lessons in Scripture and across human history inform our action in the world? ¢¢ How can we speak of hope in a time of deep divisiona time too often defined by racism, misogyny, materialism, militarism, religious nationalism, and xenophobia?
Taking our food system back is an act of revolution. Restoring the feminine is an act of sacred responsibility. Returning to the cycles of nature is an act of love. Grounding into the soil is an act of hope. The soil, the fertile ground beneath us, holds the key to the future of our planet and our species—yet few people are aware of the critical role soil health plays in reversing climate change. With Grounded, Dr. Erin Yu-Juin McMorrow takes us on a journey to explore the sacred interconnectedness between our soil and ourselves, seamlessly weaving the science of our broken carbon cycle and the oppression of the divine feminine into a powerful tapestry of hope and resilience. McMorrow is the voice of a generation that carries the future of our planet on their shoulders. “There’s no other group of people to pass this on to,” she writes. “If we want to create a world that we can keep living in, it’s time, and it’s us.” In Grounded, McMorrow guides us through the inner and outer work needed to restore the divine feminine and save our planet. Highlights include: The “brass tacks” of climate change—how everything from biodiversity loss to ocean acidification has roots in the killing of the microscopic life in our soil The fertile soil is feminine—and the destruction of our earth and the feminine go hand in hand Sex, birth, life, and death—how our natural cycles parallel the sacred cycles of nature How to create truly regenerative systems that celebrate the natural world’s infinite diversity, resilience, and abundance Practices to help you start making a difference right now—from personal reflections and meditations to seed saving and composting Finding hope in the sacred nature of this work—when we do our part, just as with all of nature, spirit fills in the rest Becoming grounded—root within to remember that you are of the earth, awaken your divine power, and expand in the world Grounded is both a clarion call and a revolutionary guide
