The path of least resistance is seldom the path of greatest impact. This is a truth that the apostles knew intrinsically, but from which we, the modern church, seem to shy away. They boldly proclaimed the Gospel, in season and out of season. We want to avoid risk, avoid stepping on toes, avoid any bad publicity that might come with going out on a limb. But much like the first rockets to leave Earth's atmosphere, giant leaps forward in God's kingdom don't come without a big vision and a great big dose of risk. In Unstoppable Gospel, pastor Gregg Matte calls readers to take up the task of the early church and go change the world. He shows how using ordinary, everyday people has been God's plan from the beginning and how we all have a part in that plan. He shares many practical ways Christians can get involved in their churches and communities to take advantage of the countless opportunities God provides for us to make a lasting kingdom impact in our world.

Worry, anxiety, and fear saturate our world today more than ever—from acts of terrorism to economic downturns. But many women face real fears in their own homes—death, illness, job loss, betrayal, rejection, and dozens of other threats that challenge their family’s well being. As women recognize and understand the warnings signs of worry and negative self-talk, they can employ strategies to navigate their overwhelming anxiety and hopeless thoughts.

Words That Change Everything offers true personal stories with biblical applications to help everyday women understand the purpose of their God-given emotions and identify biblical prayer strategies to help them confront their worries.
A Heartwarming Story Collection of Children's Encounters with God, Angels, and Miracles Children have a special place in Jesus' heart. He said they are the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, and their angels continually see the face of God.

It contains the touching true stories of children who have heard Jesus speak, encountered angels, and experienced miracles. We could all use more childlike faith, and these stories "from the mouths of babes" will encourage readers to be open to hear from the Lord in a fresh, sweet, and pure way.

Faith to Remove Mountains discuss some of the teachings that my mother taught me before her illness and death from Alzheimers disease in November of 1996. My purpose for writing this book was divinely inspired. While I was compiling bible scriptures to help my mother, I realized there were many people who also needed help, so my focus shifted from serving self to serving others. My book also include scriptures that helped me through my divorce from a 20 year marriage as well.
Widowed is the true story of how our family lost my wife and her father. It is a deep and personal look at living with illness, realizing you can be left alone and having to make sense of the death of a spouse. Widowed contains excerpts of some of the most personal conversations, prayers and feelings I took part in before and after my wife passed away. In reading it, I hope you come to realize that no matter what life throws at you, you will be ok and that God will see you through any ordeal. No matter what lies Satan whispers in your ear or how bad things may seem, always remember that God truly does care. The author's bio is usually reserved for things dealing with the author, his greatest accomplishments and his writing credentials. However, I only found it a fitting tribute to give you the bio of my wife instead. Darla was born April 22, 1972. She was the middle child of her mother's five children. Some of her many personal achievements are that she was a talented pianist, a singer, a childcare provider, an administrative assistant, a property manager, a better than average cook, a wonderful listener and a quiet but brilliant speaker. She enjoyed crafting, reading and had an eclectic taste in music and movies. She was a natural beauty, with a great smile and an infectious laugh. If those that knew her were asked to give 5 things to describe her they would tell you: she was a great friend, a wonderful sister, a lovely daughter, an incredible wife and an amazing mother. Most importantly, she was very much loved.
"Journey of Blind Faith" will transport you into the heart of Vietnam in the 1960s, where you will meet Lan, a young orphan girl who survives abandonment, abuse, homelessness, and several near death encounters. Miraculously, she escapes the Communist takeover in 1975 but can never rid herself of the longing to know the fate of her family-the family that abandoned her to the streets of Saigon. Believing in hope when there was no hope, trusting in God regardless of impossible odds, Lan takes this dangerous journey of faith back into Communist South Vietnam, leaving her husband and children behind, to obey the call on her life: "Go Find." Based on the true story of Pam Erhart, "Journey of Blind Faith" will draw you in with its simplicity, shock you with its honesty, and inspire you with its message: Faith is not believing God can, it is knowing He will.

Is there life after death? A Hidden Sicilian History: Second Edition presents an intriguing and easy-to-read historical novel that starts with the investigation of a mysterious death. While doing research in the public library in Enna, Sicily, a young man notices an ancient scroll has drifted from a shelf onto the floor. It appears to have slipped from a gap between two volumes about the Spanish Inquisition. Though he expects it to be related to life in Sicily at the time of Spanish rule, instead the handwritten scroll reports a singular drama that was performed on the stage of the deconsecrated Church of Santa Croce in Enna some time ago. The young man decides to translate the fascinating lost manuscript from Italian into English and publish it. Historical facts flow freely from the document, as well as its descriptions of traditional feasts and processions, the way to remove hexes and roundworms from children, and life in Enna’s public whorehouse. It also touches on other societies bound together by a common thread: the yearning to understand the meaning of life. The novel’s theme becomes a journey into the innermost recesses of the soul.
Sometimes we are scared to look within. This book is designed to help you with the very sensitive task of tending to your heart. Laurie gently walks us through this engaging, interactive process with the Lord to completely transform our hearts. After all, we might not like what we find there. We might have the perfect picture of ourselves that we have manufactured in our minds eye shattered by the realization that we still have weeds of sin deeply entwined in certain furrows of our heart. And then would begin the difficult task of digging down and pulling up these roots from some very delicate places. Perhaps, we may think, it is easier to be ignorant and let these things go. But if we let them go, the weeds will continue to grow, and the kind of fruit they bear will hinder our walk with the Lord. If we desire to bear the fruit of righteousness in our hearts, we mustwith the Lords help of courseexplore these places, uproot these sins, and plant seeds of righteousness instead.
Andrea Logan White appeared to be living the “American dream” or what many would call a “perfect life.” However, underneath the happy veneer of the model, actress, and producer, was a subtle, caustic voice leading to emptiness and self-destruction. She was being crushed under the weight of her own drive for “perfection.” Andrea’s remarkable (and often tabloid-worthy) journey that took her from hanging out in the Playboy mansion to finding God at a stop light on Hollywood Boulevard is a page-turner, but it is not the whole story. Even discovering Jesus, finding an amazing husband, having beautiful children, and embarking on an exciting career didn’t hold the “happily ever after” Hollywood ending Andrea had envisioned. No matter how successful, how spiritual, how loved, she was still enslaved by a lie the Enemy uses against many of us: she felt she needed to be “perfect” to be accepted by herself, by others, and by God. Andrea shares her struggle with life-threatening eating disorders and self-defeating thought patterns, and she reveals the beautiful discovery that God’s love meets us not in our perfection, but in the most unfinished places of our life. In Perfectly Unfinished, Andrea exposes the powerful truth that continues to change her life: God loves us just as we are, just where we are; for it is in the midst of our brokenness and imperfections that Jesus is at work completing us so that we may share fully in his holiness. Alongside Andrea, readers discover from the word of God how to join God in the work he is doing in the midst of our unfinished and imperfect lives.
A beautifully told narrative of a church pastor who became a state chaplain in high-security prisons for men. Having chronicled many stories of incarceration during her thirteen-year stint, she describes here how she bore witness to misery and miracles within an intractable system.
“Lord, Whatever It Takes, Make Me Like You!” You long to serve God with grace and strength, to reflect Christ in every word and action. Yet you find yourself continually struggling to bring that vision to life in your daily walk. At our very core, every one of us is a “twisted sister” within whom the flesh and spirit battle constantly for control. We are afflicted with spiritual schizophrenia, the disconnect between our “good girl” desire to put Jesus first and our “bad girl” realities that crowd our thoughts and push him out of the way. In this life-changing book, Joanna Weaver, author of the perennial bestseller, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, directs your gaze past your own shortcomings to the God who stands ready, willing, and able to make a new woman out of you. She equips you with biblical insights and practical tools to partner with Christ, inviting him into the hidden places of your soul and giving him full permission to redeem and renovate. Drawing on the stories of biblical Marys and others whose experience with God transformed their lives, Joanna shows how you can find the hope, healing, wholeness, and joy your heart longs for. Having a Mary Spirit will launch you toward lasting personal transformation–soul-deep change that results in a complete makeover, from the inside out. **Includes a 12-week Bible study for both individual reflection and group discussion**
Where in the world is the church? These articles, essays, opinion pieces, and blog posts gather around that question. If we quit on the question in despair, we are lost. If we answer it too quickly, we are not digging deeply enough. But if we hunt hard with the help of the Holy Spirit, we'll find Christ's body alive, active, working, growing, and making things new. In Discerning the Body, Jason Byassee goes hunting for the church guided by a singular conviction--God has promised there will be a church until Christ's return. So it's out there, it's just slightly hard to find. Where is a batch of Jesus' disciples, gathering around his Word and Sacraments, living out his mission in the world? Byassee spends time among Catholics, evangelicals, mainliners, and a few non-Christians looking for signs of Christ's body. He also looks in less likely places: among athletes, in institutions, in popular culture, in the craft of writing. It is very hard to expect to be surprised. Doesn't the expectation ruin the surprise? Yet it's Jesus who surprises us in the church. Every time we find him, we have to expect to be surprised to find him anew in some counterintuitive guise. This book is about the author's learning to expect to be astounded anew by Christ.
