5 devotionals for women, reflecting on our journey to the Promised Land.
Are you wandering in the wilderness of life? Losing your battle for contentment? Come follow the Israelites’ journey to the Promised Land, and see the parallel struggles in your own life. Find hope and encouragement for your desert times of want and uncertainty.
Our broken, fallen world is marked by a constant struggle for contentment. In the difficulties of each day, we can be prone to complain and think the grass is greener on the other side. We can doubt God’s goodness and plan for us, especially when our path is dark and we feel lost in the wilderness of life.
The Israelites’ journey to the Promised Land was a journey much like our own. Fear, discontentment and a failure to trust God plagued the very people he had miraculously delivered from slavery. In this gospel-centered devotional, busy women will find encouragement through the ups and downs of life as they glean insights through daily readings, short teachings, and personal-reflection questions for each day.

What could you possibly expect to learn from a hermit?
The wisdom that comes from the sayings and teachings of a recluse preacher are brought to life in a way that could change your life for the better. Not only will you laugh a little, but you might cry a little, too. However, you will definitely come away with solid life lessons that can help you and others cope with the stressful and complex situations that life tends to throw your way.
Suffice It To Say will give you not only common sense wisdom, but the biblical examples and stories to back up the truths that might not seem so obvious to some. In a nostalgic, easy-to-read fashion, David Lott will take you through turmoil, tragedy, and triumph. He will show how God can turn everyday experiences and unexpected twists into divine lessons that each of us can learn. Food for thought is found at nearly every turn of the page in this delightful journey with the “hermit” who never realized the far-reaching extent of his wisdom.
David L. Lott is a Baptist missionary, serving with his family in Guatemala since 1991. He has also ministered in Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, and several other countries around the world. His teachings and seminars on music, marriage, and the family have been a great blessing to many in the countries where he has ministered. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology, and is working on a Master of Arts degree in Biblical Counseling from Luther-Rice Seminary. David and his wife, Beth, have four children who are grown and faithfully following the Lord.
A fiercehearted woman looks life in the face and says, “You can’t beat me.” She knows love is a risk but reaches out anyway. She chases Jesus with a tender, world-changing wildness. She never gives in, never gives up, and never lets go. Best of all, the potential to be a fiercehearted woman is inside each and every woman on earth.
In her most powerful book yet, beloved bestselling author Holley Gerth inspires her readers to become the stronger, braver, truer women they long to be by sharing personal stories of her own struggles and victories. As readers join Holley on this journey, they’ll discover a freedom they never imagined could be theirs: the freedom to experience life, love, and faith to the fullest because fear can no longer hold them back.
For the woman who is restless or longing for more, Fiercehearted is an invitation to the life God has always meant for her to embrace.
“The unexamined life is not worth living,” according to Socrates, but pursuing the examined life strikes many as daunting, unappealing and even unnecessary. Is philosophy important? Why do I need philosophy if I have the Bible? Aren’t philosophers simply engaged in meaningless disputes that are irrelevant to everyday life?
Mark Foreman addresses these and other questions in this “prelude” to the subject. Unlike a full introduction to philosophy, this book is a preliminary discussion that dispels misunderstandings and explains the rationale for engaging in philosophical reasoning.
In the first half of the book, Foreman defines the task of philosophy, compares it to other disciplines and demonstrates its practical value to Christians interested in developing a more thoughtful faith. The second half introduces the reader to logic and argumentation, the essential tools of a philosopher. Concise and straightforward, Prelude to Philosophy is a guide for those looking to embark on the “examined life.”
How are Christians to live in a violent and wounded world? Rather than contending for privilege by wielding power and authority, we can witness prophetically from a position of weakness. The church has much to learn from an often-overlooked community―those with disabilities.
In this fascinating book, theologian Stanley Hauerwas collaborates with Jean Vanier, founder of the worldwide L’Arche communities. For many years, Hauerwas has reflected on the lives of people with disability, the political significance of community, and how the experience of disability addresses the weaknesses and failures of liberal society. And L’Arche provides a unique model of inclusive community that is underpinned by a deep spirituality and theology. Together, Vanier and Hauerwas carefully explore the contours of a countercultural community that embodies a different way of being and witnesses to a new order―one marked by radical forms of gentleness, peacemaking, and faithfulness.
The authors’ explorations shed light on what it means to be human and how we are to live. The robust voice of Hauerwas and the gentle words of Vanier offer a synergy of ideas that, if listened to carefully, will lead the church to a fresh practicing of peace, love and friendship. This invigorating conversation is for everyday Christians who desire to live faithfully in a world that is violent and broken.
This expanded edition now includes a study guide for individual reflection or group discussion.
Dark waters are rising. Who will stay afloat?
Architect Vance Nolan has crafted a marvel—shining apartments floating in the peaceful cove of a winding river. The project is partially occupied and about to make investors rich when a sinkhole gives way.
Torrential rains quickly flood the cove, leaving a handful of builders, investors, and residents cut off from the rest of the world.
The motley group is bitterly divided over how to survive.
Vance insists they wait for rescue. Developer Tony Dean wants to strike out into the darkness. And single-mom Danielle Clement, obligated to each man and desperate to protect her young son, Simeon, isn’t sure which one is wiser.
Power failure, an unnatural daytime darkness, explosions, and a murder expose hidden intentions and dark histories. Then Simeon spots something strange underwater—beautiful, shifting lights in the dark depths. (more…)
