After a series of traumatic losses in his own life, pastor John Westfall realized that when everything feels like it’s ending, sometimes God is starting something new. Through his own dramatic story, the stories of others, and wisdom from Scripture, Westfall shares with the weary the peace of acceptance, the pleasure of release, and the power of risk.
You don’t have to wait until life is perfect to follow God into a new adventure – even if you didn’t sign up for it.– from author’s website
“The message of Jesus changed the world . . . until the world changed the message,” says Cavey. “But I’m happy to say that there is a growing movement of truth-seekers and Jesus-lovers who are calling for a return to the first and foundational good news message of Jesus. This book is inspired by them, and it is an invitation to join their ranks.”
In (re)union, Cavey explains why Christians shouldn’t follow the Bible—but why they will want to read it to learn how to follow Jesus. He encourages readers to discover their true citizenship in the Jesus nation, where they might be ready to die for a cause but never willing to kill for one.– from author’s website

<div align="justify"This is the first adult coloring book I've done and I enjoyed it for the most part. It is meant to be used as a devotional and I found it an interesting idea to include group questions to be able to do it like a Bible study. I enjoyed coloring the pictures, although they sometimes seemed too detailed to color. What I mean by that is that there were birds with hearts on them or some sections were so small that it was hard to stay within the lines except when the pencil crayon was freshly sharpened. So if you don't want to take the time and effort that it takes to color something really detailed, this probably wouldn't be the best book for you, but it does offer some excellent thoughts and some excellent pictures.

Many people look to extraordinary experiences as evidence of the Holy Spirit. But what happens when the experience ends? How can we be filled with the Spirit every day in the ordinary things we do?
In never-before-published material taken from A.W. Tozer’s sermons, Alive in the Spirit answers these questions and, in a balanced perspective, explores what the Spirit’s involvement in your life should look like.
Many talk about being filled with the Holy Spirit, but few accept God’s conditions. Tozer lays down these requirements in his trademark bold and wise way. Though every Christian has the Spirit, not every Christian is filled with the Spirit. Knowing the difference will change your life.
“We will never get anywhere unless the Holy Spirit has the authority to convict us so that He might bring us into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and a steady walk with Him” (p. 84-85).
“I have endeavored to point out that there are certain gifts and talents, but there are some that come like fruit, and the tree does not cultivate the fruit; the farmer does” (p.140).
“Some people have not wept an honest tear for anybody in distress, but they will weep while there is somebody sitting at a desk somewhere in the studio making believe they are in trouble” (p.171-172).
I really enjoyed the book because it made me think about how I live and what I think about the Holy Spirit. It was thought-provoking and challenging.
Co-authors and best friends Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan have felt the same, until one essential question turned the tables on it all: If God is wild and free and he created women, what does this mean for us today?
Wild and Free is an anthem and an invitation in equal parts to find freedom from the cultural captivity that holds us back, and freedom to step into the wild and holy call of God in our lives. With fresh biblical insight tracing all the way back to Eve and a treasury of practical application, the authors reveal how women today can walk in the true liberty we already have in Jesus.– from LifeWay
Myths about angels are everywhere. Do we become angels when we die? Are angels always hovering nearby, on guard to protect us from danger? Can we talk to them? Many of our ideas about angels come from the media, which is more interested in ratings and ticket sales than truth. It’s important for Christians to understand what angels really are.
Pastor Jack Graham walks you through Scripture, revealing the truth about angels and what they offer us: encouragement, counsel, confirmation of God’s will, strength, protection, wisdom, companionship, and more. Focusing on practical application, Dr. Graham separates fact from fiction and demonstrates that the main role of angels isn’t to draw attention to themselves, but to point us toward Christ.– from publisher’s website
Will you say yes?
In her warm, conversational way, bestselling author and Proverbs 31 speaker Suzanne Eller shows how, when you say yes, you take a step away from the uncertainty, the to-do list, the worries and excuses. And you take a step toward the One who promises to delight and surprise, who will transform who you are, how you live, and how you impact the world.
So come. Walk with Jesus. Listen to his words. Step into the harder places of faith – but not alone. Learn who you are, but more so who he is to you.
The road will wind, your feet will get dusty. But you will discover the unexpected beauty of following where he leads. And that is worth everything.
Each chapter includes “Taking It Deeper” reflection questions, a Scripture, a Prayer, and Application steps for “Living As A Disciple”.– from author’s website
