The traumatic experiences of our past, and our own sinful actions, can put us in bondage to shame, guilt, and depression. When that happens, we may wonder how our lives would be better if only something or someone had been different. However, we don’t have to become permanent residents in the Land of If Only.
Escape from the Land of if Only, outlines a biblical path to freedom from the effects of past traumas. It explains how a child of God can recover from abuse, abandonment, addiction, and poverty. The reader will learn how to apply biblical truth and the promises of God to become a victor instead of a victim. The before and after stories of deeply wounded and depressed residents of a Christian homeless shelter display the bondage breaking power and love of God. Those women experienced deep and lasting healing as they broke free from depression, fear, and shame. Learning how they escaped from the Land of If Only will show others how they can also walk out of captivity into emotional and spiritual freedom.

We all want to make sense of life, of who we are and why we are, and to know that what we do―day in and day out―matters. But the daily demands―work, eat, sleep, repeat―often lead to a life that feels void of meaning and disjointed from our deepest beliefs about faith, hope, and love.
Steven Garber challenges us to move beyond our fragmented sense of reality and began to see all we are and all we do―our work, our play, our relationships, our worship, our loves―as significant to God and to what God is doing in the world. Once we discover that there is no chasm between heaven and earth, and begin to see the truest truths of the universe woven into the very meaning of life, labor, learning and liturgy, we are able to understand the coherence of the work of God and of our lives in the world.
This is the seamless life―to recognize the hand of God and the handiwork of God right in the middle of our ordinary lives. To see all of life as sacred. And to understand that it all matters.
We all want to guide our children into the abundant life that Jesus offers. But when we pursue the more and better that the world offers above our pursuit of Jesus, we fall into dangerous parenting habits. In Becoming a Spiritually Healthy Family, Michelle Anthony unpacks six common dysfunctional parenting styles that we fall into out of habit, lack of attention, or just oversight due to busyness. If you long to show your children Jesus but don’t know how to do it, you’ll find hope in this practical guide to creating a relentlessly grace-filled home that is focused on God as first in charge.
Includes Scripture guides, reflection questions, ideas for family rites of passage, and other real life family examples.
