“The world has a way of defining you if you don’t know who you are before you get out there.” —Candace Cameron Bure
As a woman in today’s world, you know what it’s like to feel pressure on all sides from clashing cultural expectations. How can you stay true to who God has uniquely created you to be in the face of the script you’ve been given? What’s more, how can you stand your ground with grace?
The classy confidence you know and love—whether it’s on set at Full House or Fuller House, Dancing with the Stars, The View, or Candace’s Hallmark films—is no act. But it hasn’t come easy. In fact, learning to stay true to herself with grace has been one of the biggest fights of Candace’s life.
The secret, she has learned, is a kindness: it’s classy, unexpected, even counter-cultural, and ultimately wins the day.
In Kind Is the New Classy, Candace reveals the thought patterns and practices that have empowered her to stay centered in who she is while practicing radical graciousness toward others. Whether you’re navigating major life choices, questions of calling and career, relationships, or personal goals, this book will show you how to:
Keep your cool under pressure
Respond to criticism with grace
Stay grounded yet go places in life
Stay true to who you are despite the expectations of others
Stay centered in what ultimately matters the most
Kind Is the New Classy is your permission to go off-script, to say goodbye to society’s “should’s”, and to step into a new way to flourish as a woman today.

As the Christian life does not begin without means, neither can it grow without them.
The Christian life can be daunting, especially in a world hostile to the ways of God. But the good news is that the God who calls us to be holy has also appointed helpful means so that we can grow in godliness. In Holy Helps for a Godly Life, Richard Rogers shows what the means of godliness are, describes their nature, and explains how they should be used. God has promised to give grace to those who use these means in a right and reverent way, and those who use these means in faith will discover their value for themselves.
“Reformation Heritage Books has done the church a great service by making Richard Rogers’s classic available again, and editor Brian Hedges has made it much more accessible by his faithful modernization of the language when needed. The council in this book is helpful to Christians young and old—whether new in the faith or spiritually mature. It demonstrates not only Rogers’s gift for teaching the Bible clearly but also his pastoral concern to provide practical guidance for daily Christian living. What he said in Holy Helps to a Godly Life is as valuable today as it was when it first appeared in 1603. Now, thanks to RHB and Brian Hedges, the godly Richard Rogers, ‘being dead still speaks’ (Heb. 11:4).”
—Donald S. Whitney, professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, and author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life

Sixteenth century England.
The Protestant Reformation sweeps across Europe into England, bringing political and religious upheaval—and danger to all who embrace this new learning. Into this tumultuous period, young Anne Askew, a gentlewoman from Lincolnshire, forges her way into history.
From the peasant revolt in Northern England, which threatens the very lives of her beloved father and brothers, through a loveless marriage, and finally to the political intrigues of Henry VIII’s court, Anne’s courageous and steadfast faith sustains her. But when her own life is threatened, can Anne’s faith hold true?
Here is the true story of a young English woman, who faced adversity and affliction with the strong belief that Christ is indeed sufficient in all circumstances—and no matter what the cost, the truth of Christ must prevail.
Only Glory Awaits is historical fiction about the life and martyrdom of Anne Askew, a contemporary of Lady Jane Grey.
Don’t waste your awkwardness.
The most difficult subjects in our lives are also the ones that we find most uncomfortable to talk about: divorce, body image, sexuality, pornography, or depression. Our awkward silence reveals the gap that exists between what we are and what we know we should be. But God loves those awkward moments, Sammy Rhodes argues, because they are precisely where we find connection with God and one another.
In This Is Awkward, Rhodes talks directly, honestly, hilariously about the most painfully uncomfortable subjects in our lives. In chapters like “Parents Are a Gift (You Can’t Return Them)” and “The Porn in My Side,” he boldly goes where most of us fear to tread, revealing that we can be liberated by the embrace of a God who knows the most shameful things about us and loves us all the same. Because nothing is too awkward for God.
