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.
She Did What She Could
Most of us care. We really do. We care about poverty and injustice, about orphans and the sick. And yet, weighed down by the everyday load of bringing home a paycheck, putting food on the table, and taking care of our family demands, we question our ability to make a difference. Bombarded by one celebrity help-the-world-athon after another, we shrug our shoulders in futility and do absolutely nothing. Enter She Did What She Could. Based on the woman who anointed Jesus’ feet with expensive perfume in Mark 14, She Did What She Could provides overwhelmed, yet service-seeking, significance-starved readers a realistic response to the seemingly unmeetable needs around us.
