Christmas Changes Everything
Christmas changes everything—the course of history and the course of our lives.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the stories of the men and women who experienced the first Christmas. From Zechariah’s encounter with an angel in the temple to the Magi who traveled to a village in the Judean wilderness, Christmas influenced who they were, who they would become, and how they would live out their faith—or leave it behind.
Great for your own Christmas reading, and to give to a friend!
You Are Not Alone
What do you do when you feel lonely? Drown the silence with noise? Binge watch a new series? Eat a bag of chips? Or worse? You’re not the only one.
Loneliness has become an epidemic. Especially in the times where social distancing has forced us away from each other. Our hearts are hurting. Thankfully, we are never really alone. God’s promise to be with us remains. You Are Not Alone provides six affirming reminders about God’s person, His plan, presence, provision, promise, and purpose. As you engage with the inspirational and relatable storytelling of Elisa Morgan you will be encouraged by the presence of God in your life.
When We Pray Like Jesus
When asked, “How does Jesus teach us to pray?” what would you answer? Most Christians would probably mention the Lord’s Prayer. But there’s another way that Jesus taught us to pray: in the garden of Gethsemane, he modeled a prayer that can revitalize and transform your prayer life.
You can be totally honest with God. He wants to know exactly how you feel. When We Pray Like Jesus will help you express your deepest emotions to God and have confidence in his will for your life. You’ll explore Jesus’ prayer in the garden of Gethsemane and see his ultimate example of intimacy with the Father. Learn how to trust God the same way Jesus did when he said, "Not my will, but yours be done" (Luke 22:42).
Hello, Beauty Full
Are you believing the great lie that God does not, maybe even could not, love you? The real you? Women struggle under the ongoing weight of “not-enough-ness.” Not attractive enough. Not smart enough. Not fit enough. Not creative enough. Not good enough. Not sexy enough. Not strong enough. Not whole enough. Not womanly enough. And therefore, not beautiful. We are broken and ashamed to be so.
In our eyes, brokenness makes us unlovable and unusable. But in his Word, God is clear that he sees us the way we already are in Christ: deeply loved and abundantly influential. Yet we hang back, believing instead the toxic not-enough labels.
The Beauty of Broken
Find beauty and hope by facing and dealing with the messiness of family life.
Broken people become broken parents who make broken families. But actually, broken is normal and exactly where God wants us.
“We’ve bought into the myth of the perfect family,” says Elisa. “Formulaic promises about the family may have originated in well-meaning intentions, but such thinking isn’t realistic. It’s not helpful. It’s not even kind.”
Find hope in the form of “broken family values." Values such as commitment, humility, relinquishment, and respect carry us to new places of understanding. Owning our brokenness shapes us into God’s best idea for us and enables us to discover the beauty in ourselves and each member of our family.
