“This book walks each of us through the reality checks we need in order to have the marriage we want!”
—Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher and best-selling author of For Women Only
In today’s workplace, women are often rewarded for having type A personalities: driven, demanding, ambitious, and strong. Yet when it comes to their marriages, those same traits can backfire. After all, no one goes into marriage hoping for a promotion. What is a wife to do?
April Cassidy knows this struggle firsthand. She thought she was a great Christian wife and begged God to make her passive husband into a more loving, involved, godly leader. Instead, God opened her eyes to changes that she needed to make, such as laying down her desire for control and offering genuine, unconditional respect—-not just love—-to her husband.
Cassidy’s conclusions may be as startling to readers as they were to her, but The Peaceful Wife shares how she and many others have learned to reorient their lives to biblical commands—resulting in healthier, happier marriages. In the end, you’ll find The Peaceful Wife a powerful path to God’s design for women to live in full submission to Christ as Lord.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
~ Jesus, John 10:27
Countless Christians today are hungry to hear God’s voice. The trouble is, many don’t know how. In a warm and practical way, Jesus Speaks teaches readers how to listen for the voice of Jesus. The bookexplores the various ways in which Christ speaks today and how His sheep can grow in their ability to recognize and respond to His voice daily.
By exploring how the disciples interacted with the risen Jesus—from the Gospels to Revelation—Sweet and Viola unpack the myriad of ways the Lord speaks to His people today. They demystify the process, providing practical handles on how you can recognize the voice of Jesus in your own life.
In 2009, Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola set out on a journey of discovery. They had one goal: to help restore the supremacy and sovereignty of Jesus Christ above all else. Soon after, they released their national bestseller, Jesus Manifesto. Two years later, they released Jesus: A Theography, beautifully establishing that all Scripture unveils a person—the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Speaks is the long-awaited third volume in their JESUS trilogy. Read it and be equipped to hear the voice of your Lord.
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
The authorized biography of the creator of Middle-earth. In the decades since his death in September 1973, millions have read THE HOBBIT, THE LORD OF THE RINGS, and THE SILMARILLION and become fascinated about the very private man behind the books. Born in South Africa in January 1892, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was orphaned in childhood and brought up in near-poverty. He served in the first World War, surviving the Battle of the Somme, where he lost many of the closest friends he’d ever had. After the war he returned to the academic life, achieving high repute as a scholar and university teacher, eventually becoming Merton Professor of English at Oxford where he was a close friend of C.S. Lewis and the other writers known as The Inklings.
Then suddenly his life changed dramatically. One day while grading essay papers he found himself writing ‘In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit’ — and worldwide renown awaited him.
Humphrey Carpenter was given unrestricted access to all Tolkien’s papers, and interviewed his friends and family. From these sources he follows the long and painful process of creation that produced THE LORD OF THE RINGS and THE SILMARILLION and offers a wealth of information about the life and work of the twentieth century’s most cherished author.
Many of us are bent on producing and achieving, striving and hustling for our self-worth. Beneath this relentless drive churns a deep yearning to uncover our true selves and our purpose in this world. Gardeners familiar with the technique called “pruning open” know that the secret to healthy plants and trees lies in subtracting rather than adding. Similarly, we begin to flourish as we let go of our false selves and allow God to prune us open.
With powerful stories and revealing research, Michelle DeRusha helps readers:
– learn how to declutter their hearts, minds, and souls through the practice of directed rest
– let go of busyness, striving, and false identities to embrace their truest selves as beloved children of God
– grow in their relationships, vocations, communities, and intimacy with God
True You offers those exhausted by the pervasive do-more, be-more messages of our society a path toward rest, renewal, and, ultimately, wholeness in Christ.

Are you facing a battle in life?
Life is full of battles and struggles of all kinds. Undefeated by Dr. Don Wilton will lead you to recognize the real enemy and takes you straight to the Cross where you will find all you need for success in overcoming life’s battles.
Worldly success sometimes leaves one feeling empty and defeated, but with God’s strategy for success, you can live an undefeated life! But you do not have to fight your battles alone. In fact, by following God’s strategy, He will fight them for you, and with Him, you are always Undefeated.
Dr. Wilton, a frequent teacher at Bible conferences internationally, provides an in-depth study that will put you on the pathway to successfully conquer life’s battles.
Are you ready for a new kind of success?
Dr. Wilton reminds all people that God has offered us forgiveness so that we can turn around and extend forgiveness to others. I am convinced that every believer will be edified and encouraged by reading this simple and life-changing book.—Robby Gallaty, Senior Pastor, Long Hollow Baptist Church President, Replicate.org
Forgiven by Don Wilton leads you straight to the Cross of Jesus where you can be absolutely certain that you are forgiven of your sins. But it doesn’t stop there.
The need for forgiveness, a result of God’s miraculous grace, is one of the deepest needs of the human heart.
Hurts run deep and it is difficult to forgive those who have wounded you. Many Christians live their lives needlessly handcuffed and chained to the past. In doing so, they pass down a heritage of bitterness and hatred to their children. A right relationship with God sets the stage for a right relationship with every other person in your life.
Forgiven will lead you to choose forgiveness over bitterness. It may seem inconceivable to you at this point, but God wants to use your story of forgiveness for His glory!
Are you ready for the power of the Cross to change your life for eternity?
Is Your Home Out of Order?
Do your kids expect clean folded clothes to magically appear in their drawers? Do they roll their eyes when you suggest they clean the bathroom? By racing in to make their lives easy, have you unintentionally reinforced your children’s belief that the world revolves around them?
Dismayed at the attitude of entitlement that had crept into her home, Kay Wyma got some attitude of her own. Cleaning House is her account of a year-long campaign to introduce her five kids to basic life skills and the ways meaningful work can increase earned self-confidence and concern for others.
With irresistible humor and refreshing insights, Kay candidly details the ups and downs of equipping her kids for such tasks as making beds, refinishing a deck chair, and working together. The changes that take place in her household will inspire you to launch your own campaign to dislodge your kids from the center of their universe.
“If you want your children to be more responsible, more self-assured, and more empathetic, Cleaning House is for you.”
—Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family
