We are daily reminded of our lack of trust in God, our neglect of prayer, our worship of other things – our faithlessness to a perfectly faithful God. Philip De Courcy looks at the every-day struggles of life, from understanding God’s purposes to coping with pain. He draws on Scripture to help equip us for these struggles – and encourage us to rely on our Father who did not leave us without guidance, even for the smallest aspect of life.

When has a diet ever yielded long-term weight results?
“Read this book, engage in the Bible study, listen to the Spirit of God whisper that you’re God’s dear child, and reorient your mind around the truth that you mean more to Him than the stars in the sky…You’ll find a beautiful blend of freedom and determination.”
Rob Ketterling, Excerpt from Foreword – author and pastor of River Valley Church, Front Row Leadership, Change Before You Have To, and Fix It.
If you have ever felt hopeless about your weight or struggled with the up and down rollercoaster of yo-yo dieting, Find Your Weigh offers a new perspective and proactive steps to change your relationship with food.
When we think about losing weight, we immediately think of a diet. However, diets are only short-term fixes to target our weight, which is really just a symptom of our behavior with food. If we really want to change our weight story, we’ve got to target our behavior with food and uncover the beliefs that actually inform that behavior. The problem is that most of us have no idea what we believe or why we act the way that we do with food.
What do Netflix, our desire for the corner office, and that perfect picture we just posted on Instagram have to do with each other? None of these things is wrong in itself. But when we begin to allow entertainment, success, or social media to control us, we miss out on the joy of God’s rule in our hearts.
In Gods at War, Pastor Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of Not a Fan, helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives.
According to Idleman, idolatry isn’t an issue? it is the issue.
By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us is allowing on the throne of our lives. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? We’re all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success, and many others that keep us from the intimate relationship with God that we desire.
“Our hearts must be open to the Lord, his mission, and what he might have us do. In He Knows Her Name, Kelly Parkison reminds us to never say never, and to trust the Lord’s work in our hearts and minds.”—Ed Stetzer, LifeWay Research
There are an estimated 20 million orphans in the country of India. Thanks to Kelly and Scott Parkison, that number has decreased by one.

He Knows Her Name is the amazing and true story of how God uses the most unlikely circumstances for His greater purpose.
Calling the Parkisons’ adoption story a rollercoaster ride of emotion would be an understatement.

Some people feel they don’t measure up to anyone’s expectations. As a result, they tend to procrastinate, set unrealistic goals, or continually try to please others. With the positive, no-nonsense strategies offered in When Your Best Isn’t Good Enough, readers can raise their low self-perception and overcome these feelings of rejection and inadequacy.
Writing in his well-known, upbeat style, Dr. Kevin Leman helps those who struggle with self-doubt to value their talents and gifts and accept their shortcomings. He points out why the lifestyle we develop as a child determines our degree of success or failure and explains how, regardless of the past, each person can develop a healthy lifestyle today. Dr. Leman also shows readers how to apply these same principles in raising children with healthy self-esteem.
