    Dolly Parton has entertained, educated, and inspired millions of fans for over five decades. Whether she’s writing songs, performing live, recording new albums, acting in or producing new movies and TV programs, expanding her wildly successful Dollywood amusement park, helping children around the world learn to read with her Imagination Library nonprofit, or donating millions of dollars to schools, charities, and people in need, the Queen of Country Music has never been shy about crediting her Christian faith for her success. “A belief in God is essential,” Dolly shares. “You have to believe in something bigger than yourself. We grew up believing that through God all things are possible.” Growing up in the little mountain church where her grandfather preached, Dolly started singing hymns and playing guitar at services when she was only six. Consequently, she has never been shy about discussing her faith and relationship with God. “People say, ‘Well, I am surprised that you talk about your faith,’ and I say, ‘Why not? That’s who I am. That’s what keeps me going,’” she explains. Tennessee native, Dolly fanboy, and award-winning writer Dudley Delffs now spotlights ten faith lessons as evidenced in Dolly’s life, music, interviews, and attitude. The Faith of Dolly Parton focuses on the ways Dolly’s life can inspire us all to be more authentic, to trust God during hard times, to stay grounded during the good times, and to always keep our sense of humor. Sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, frequently surprising, and always true to Dolly’s down-home spirit of joyful generosity, this book will delight her millions of fans as well as anyone seeking a fresh faith-filled role model.

    In a culture that praises blending in over standing out, productivity over purpose, and noise over truth, many women find their God-given voice compromised, quieted, or even mocked. We all long to live out our divinely designed passions and unique talents, yet too often it becomes so much easier in the face of opposition to stay silent altogether. What if God is calling you to so much more? As a working mom, wife, artist, and abolitionist, Natalie Grant has struggled to live on purpose while battling the worldly demands of keeping up the appearance of perfection. Emerging from her own dark spiral of suffocating inadequacy, Natalie found fresh hope in the truth that God has already given women everything they need to live out their God-given identity, passions, and calling. Finding Your Voice offers the heart-rallying, life-giving truth that a woman's voice is not an uncalled for interference to be silenced, but a gift to be used for God's Kingdom purposes. In voice lessons as in life, a strong vocal identity requires us to first stand firm, breath deep, and finally, go for it - loud and clear. With rich scriptural study and personal stories infusing every chapter, Finding Your Voice reveals how to discover your own unique talent, train it according to God's Word, and start using it for the good of others - without guilt and apology.

    La salida milagrosa de un pandillero latino de una vida de violencia a una nueva vida en Cristo

    Regular Price: $20.99 Member Price: $16.79 (or 4 credits)
    Este libro es un crudo relato autobiográfico que se asemeja al bestseller internacional La cruz y el puñal. Casey Díaz llegó a este país cuando tenía dos años, siendo el hijo mayor de inmigrantes salvadoreños que se establecieron en los suburbios del centro de Los Ángeles en la década de 1970. Un padre abusivo que golpeaba constantemente a su madre arrastró a Casey a las pandillas callejeras a la edad de once años. Escaló rápidamente dentro de los Rockwood Street Locos y participó en invasiones a hogares, robo de automóviles y en el apuñalamiento de sus rivales, muchas veces con tan solo un destornillador o un cuchillo. A los dieciséis fue arrestado y sentenciado a casi trece años en una prisión estatal por asesinato en segundo grado, y recibió cincuenta y dos cargos por robo. Al cabo de dos años fue enviado a la Prisión Estatal de New Folsom y puesto en confinamiento solitario durante veintitrés horas al día. Cuando una mujer mayor de color, que servía en el ministerio carcelario, se acerca a su celda y le dice que Jesús lo ama y que Dios lo va a usar algún día, Casey se burla de ella. Entonces, un día ocurre un hecho milagroso en su celda. Al igual que una película, ve su vida “proyectada” en la pared de la celda. Se ve a sí mismo como un pequeño niño en su antiguo barrio, y luego observa sus primeros días en las escenas de las bandas, hechos que solo él podía recordar. Luego ve a un hombre de pelo largo que carga una cruz, y una multitud que le grita. Él es clavado en la cruz y colocado entre otros dos condenados a muerte. El hombre de la cruz lo mira y le dice: “Estoy haciendo esto por ti”.
