Through beautiful designs and imagery, LA LA LOVELY invites readers to find their true identity where there is brokenness, discover the love of God, and design their own special place of beauty.
Author Trina McNeilly has been blogging for nearly a decade. While she spent her days sharing beauty, looking for lovely things, and redecorating her childhood home, her parents’ unexpected divorce shattered her ideals of “home.”
Through this journey, Trina learned that beauty is not beyond the laundry pile, chipped paint, dirty dishes, broken table or broken life. It’s right in the center of it. Trina found that God IS beauty. And that he invites us to look, discover, uncover and find because when we find beauty, we find God.
In LA LA LOVELY, Trina shares stories and inspiration from her journey of finding, and being found, by beauty. You will find deep matters of the heart along with practical pointers on things like decorating your home, finding your style, and creating beautiful spaces. Each chapter offers essays, beautiful photographs, design tips, and practical advice for creating a place of beauty and belonging no matter where you live or what you’re going through.
Christ’s command to the church is clear: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations…” It is in building disciples–helping others to embrace Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, mature in him, and then lead others to do the same–that the Kingdom grows. And when the Kingdom grows, churches do, too.
In Growing True Disciples, respected author and researcher George Barna helps pastors and leaders assess how their churches are doing in fulfilling their role as disciple-makers. And he reveals models and examples that will equip churches to dramatically increase their effectiveness. As a result, your church can begin to see more involved members who want to live out their faith in submission to God, and joyfully share their resources to fulfill Christ’s commission.

The first book in a new series that brings the experiences of favorite Bible characters to specific challenges of contemporary life.
For contemporary moms, parenting today has challenges that sometimes feel unfathomable. But it turns out that successful moms don’t need to master the latest parenting trends because the best parenting advice has already been written-it’s in the Bible. Now Katara Washington Patton provides an accessible gateway to that biblical advice–corroborated by best practices from respected authorities. Wondering how to help your kid who’s being bullied on social media? Patton shares Jochebed’s story (Moses’ mom) with insights that illustrate what moms have to do to protect kids. How do you use the “village” to help raise children? Sarah knew. And her Biblical wisdom is applied to parenting today. Patton shows how Mary, Elizabeth, Ruth, and others lead the way to successful 21st-century mothering, and she shares digestible lessons busy moms can use in their own homes.
Where Do You Worship?
Not everyone may frequent the church on the corner, but we each have a place of worship. For some, it’s at the office. For others, before the mirror. Still others, on the basketball court. You were created to worship! So you naturally find a place to do it. But to worship anything less than God robs both Him and us. It’s at the foot of the cross where we reel, trying to comprehend how a holy God could chase us down with kindness and redeem us from an eternity of futile gods. In this newly revised and refreshed edition of the original The Air I Breathe, you’ll find your sense of worship increasing beyond church walls or a Sunday routine. Soon all of life becomes your delighted response to God!
Everybody Worships Something
What captures your time and attention?
We are all worshipers…of something. But are we spending our lives and filling our days with what matters most?
Newly revised, The Air I Breathe will awaken you to the reality that worship is more than a service on Sunday. It’s every moment reflecting God’s glory and grace.

Too Small to Ignore will encourage you to turn your good, loving intentions into strategic actions and empower you to help change the world–and the future–forever, one child at a time.
The time has come for a major paradigm shift: Children are too important and too intensely loved by God to be left behind or left to chance. Children belong to all of us and we are compelled to intervene on their behalf. We must invest in children all across the world. In Too Small to Ignore, Dr. Stafford issues an urgent call for change. His adventures as a boy raised in a West African village provide an often-humorous and always-captivating backdrop to his profound and inspiring challenges. Wess lived the reality of “it takes a village to raise a child” and calls us to “be that loving village for children everywhere.”
