    What is shaking in your world? Possibly your future, your faith, your family, or finances? It's a shaky world out there. In Unshakable Hope: Building Our Lives on the Promises of God, pastor and New York Times best-selling author Max Lucado offers encouraging guidance for overcoming sadness and despair, renewing a sense of purpose, and triumphantly facing the fears of the future. We've never been more educated and entertained. We have technological tools our parents could only dream of, and we are saturated with information, amusement, and recreation. Yet more than ever, we are starving for hope. School shootings are all too familiar. Depression is on the rise. And more people than ever are orchestrating their own deaths. In America alone, the suicide rate has increased 24 percent in fewer than 20 years. If a disease saw such a spike, it would be deemed an epidemic. People are dying from a lack of hope. After 40 years of counseling and ministry, Max Lucado has learned that nothing lifts the desperate, weary heart like the promises of God. In a world full of despair, depression, anxiety, and instability, we do not need more opinions or hunches; we need the definitive declarations of our mighty and loving God. Unshakable Hope examines 12 of God's promises that Max has turned to over the years to encourage himself and others. Each chapter explores one significant promise and reveals how it will equip you to: Overcome challenging circumstances Live through sadness and renew hope Experience lasting security Make wise decisions What is your life built on - the circumstances of life or the promises of God? The answer to that question changes everything. For every problem in life, God has given you a promise. Join Max as he takes a closer look at Scripture's unbreakable promises and shows you how to live with an unshakable hope.

    Reclaiming Real Friendship in a Culture of Confusion

    Bible teacher Kelly Needham debunks our world's constricted, small view of friendship and casts a richer, more life-giving, biblical vision for friendship as God meant it to be. As the family unit grows more unstable and the average age of marriage increases, a shift is taking place in our culture: for many people, friends now play the role of family. And just as with family relationships, our friendships often don't turn out quite as we envisioned or hoped, and we wonder, Is there a better way to do this? In Friend-ish, Kelly Needham takes a close look at what Scripture says about friendship. She reveals the distorted view most of us have of it and recasts a glorious vision for a Christian understanding. By teaching us how to recognize symptoms of idolatry and dependency, she equips us to understand and address the problems that arise in friendship--from neediness to discord and even sexual temptation. With hard-fought wisdom, a clear view of Scripture, and been-there perspective, Needham reorients us toward the purposeful, loving relationships we all crave that ultimately bring us closer to God.

    It Doesn’t Have to Be This Weird When it comes to relationships between men and women, we have more questions than answers: - How do we keep relationships with the opposite sex healthy—and still hug each other after small group? - Is it possible for married men and women to be friends with people of the opposite sex? - What does it mean to be a woman if you’re not a wife, or a man if you’re not a husband? Jesus’ pattern for church living was one of family—of brothers and sisters living in intimate, life-giving community with each other. With story, sensitivity, and hope, Beyond Awkward Side Hugs invites us to leave behind eroticized, fear-based patterns and move toward gendered, generous relationships between men and women of character as we love one another as Jesus did. “Beyond Awkward Side Hugs is a deep well of biblical wisdom, and Lea has written with nuance and clarity, humor and grace.” —Jen Pollock Michel, author of Surprised by Paradox and Keeping Place “The church desperately needs a bigger vision for how men and women can flourish together in ministry and friendship, and Bronwyn Lea paints a vivid picture for how we’ll get there.” —Steve Wiens, author of Shining Like the Sun, Beginnings, and Whole

    Past Present shows listeners how to change destructive relationship patterns by identifying the root issues from their pasts and finding the source of healing for their unique stories. No matter where we are in life, both our greatest joys and our deepest heartaches are linked to the people in our lives--family, friends, or coworkers. And each of us brings both beauty and brokenness into relationships. The origins of our beauty and our brokenness often can be traced to the patterns of relating we learned when we were young. We relate to others in ways that reflect the distorted messages we heard and internalized earlier in life. The good news is this: we don't have to remain stuck in these patterns. In Past Present, Scott Vaudrey equips us with tools and a strategy to - identify the messages we've internalized--both as children and as adults--from the influential people in our lives; - refute and repair the distorted messages that led to unhelpful patterns now holding us back; and - recognize the productive messages we internalized and maximize the strengths they built into us along the way. We can't undo yesterday. But we can do the rest of our lives better.

    Popular blogger Shannan Martin offers Christians who are longing for a more meaningful life a simple starting point: learn what it is to love and be loved right where God has placed you. For Christ-followers living in an increasingly complicated world, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to live a life of intention and meaning. Where do we even begin? Shannan Martin offers a surprisingly simple answer: uncover the hidden corners of our cities and neighborhoods and invest deeply in the lives of people around us. She walks us through her own discoveries about the vital importance of paying attention, as well as the hard but rewarding truth about showing up and committing for the long haul, despite the inevitable encounters with brokenness and uncertainty. With transparency, humor, heart-tugging storytelling, and more than a little personal confession, Martin shows us that no matter where we live or how much we have, as we learn what it is to be with people as Jesus was, we'll find our very lives. The details will look quiet and ordinary, and the call will both exhaust and exhilarate us. But it will be the most worth-it adventure we will ever take.

    A Revolutionary Solution to the #1 Marriage Problem Why does communication between couples remain the number one marriage issue? “Because,” says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, “most spouses don’t know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in ‘code,’ but they won’t crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect.” Dr. Eggerichs’ best-selling book, Love & Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate to each other. In The Language of Love & Respect, he presents a practical, step-by-step approach for how husbands and wives can learn to speak each other’s distinctly different language—respect for him, love for her. The result is mutual understanding and a successful, happy marriage. Previously released as Cracking the Communication Code

She's still working as a library aide in her small Minnesota hometown and living with her parents, dreaming of the adventure she plans to take ""once she's well enough"". Meanwhile, her sister is a successful architect with a handsome husband and the perfect life - or so Megan thinks. When her heart donor's parents give Megan their teenage daughter's journal - complete with an unfulfilled bucket list - Megan connects with the girl she meets between the pages and is inspired to venture out and check off each item. Caleb - a friend from her years in and out of the hospital - reenters her life and pushes her to find the courage to take the leap and begin her journey. She's thrown for a loop when Crystal offers to join her for reasons of her own, but she welcomes the company and the opportunity to mend their tenuous relationship. As Megan and Crystal check items off the bucket list, Megan fights the fears that have been instilled in her after a lifetime of illness. She must choose between safety and adventure and learn to embrace the heart she's been given so that she can finally share it with the people she loves most.

    Sharon Jaynes, bestselling author, Bible teacher, and cofounder of Girlfriends in God, teaches women how to enjoy God's sacred gift of sexual intimacy without guilt or regret by exploring the beautiful picture given in the Song of Solomon. Everywhere we turn in our sex-saturated culture we are bombarded by destructive and unrealistic depictions of romance and intimacy. The problem, according to Bible teacher Sharon Jaynes, is not that culture focuses on sex too much but that it values sex too little. Sexual intimacy, as God intended it, is so much more than a physical act. Yet, with the extent of the church's message being "don't do it" before marriage and "don't talk about it" after, how are Christians to understand and practice the wondrous gift of intimacy between a husband and a wife when they so rarely hear biblical teaching about it? In Lovestruck, Jaynes takes readers back to the Bible's beautiful picture of romantic love, a picture that is explicit but not illicit, sensual but not sordid, daring but not dirty. With the words of Solomon and the Shulamite woman in the Song of Solomon as a backdrop, Jaynes explores topics such as the giving and receiving of pleasure, restoring romance in the mundane, making intimacy a priority, avoiding the dangers of growing indifference, creating time to pull away from life's busyness, and committing to a forever kind of love. When we see the sacred blessings of sexual intimacy in marriage and understand God's original intent, we find the freedom to enjoy and explore one of the Father's most magnificent gifts.
