Saints. Most of us know them only from church names and grotesque figures in classic paintings and stained-glass windows.
But who were these people dubbed “saints”? What are the facts behind the legends, the real human beings with all the weaknesses common to mankind who somehow made their mark in history as holy men and women?
Saints and Non-Saints dig into the sense and nonsense in the lives and legends of fifteen famous saints, ranging from larger-than-life figures like Augustine to shadowy legends like Nicholas and Valentine.
Some were saints in the biblical sense—they knew Christ as their personal Savior—while others were merely religious by human standards. All, however, are fascinating personalities whose careers have profound lessons to teach us.
“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.
Having promised to never return to India after her experience on the reality show The Amazing Race, Kelly never dreamed she would one day be a mother to a beautiful Indian girl named Lyla.
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.
An amazing story of courage and character that you will not want to put down.

Or does it?
Unfortunately, her dream house is rumored to be haunted. Not one to believe in ghosts, she fights for any logical explanation for the things happening that seem to warn her off. Once she moves in, the threat against her life becomes real. Clearly, someone or something wants her out. Now.
Will her stubbornness cost Jessica her life?
A Whisper in the Woods: Quiet Escapes in a Noisy World was birthed from Martin Wiles’ numerous treks with his two children and his middle brother in mountainous areas on the eastern coast of the United States. Through these hiking and camping experiences, God taught him valuable lessons that have seen him through many difficult life experiences.
Martin’s weekly devotionals found in A Whisper in the Woods take the reader out of the noise that often accompanies living in this world and into the quiet escapades of wooded areas where the voice of God is more clearly heard.
As you walk with Martin through the mountain valleys and over the high summits, you too will hear God whisper words of comfort to you.

“Dan Nehrbass addresses those awkward relationships where someone else’s actions put us in a bind. We may not know what to say or do, but there are usually multiple options each of which may have pros and cons worth considering.” —Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family
Marie feels trapped in her relationship with her mother. Her mom is a hoarder, so Marie came to Dr. Daniel Nehrbass with the question: “How can I get my mom to stop hoarding, so we can all live a normal life?” Dr. Nehrbass couldn’t think of one thing that would get her mom to stop hoarding, but he could think of several options she had for improving the relationship.
In UnTrapped, Dr. Nehrbass shows that whenever a relationship has you feeling trapped, you have options. While you may not be able to control another person’s behavior, you can take control of your happiness by determining how you respond. Dr. Nehrbass shares real-life stories of people who’ve tried these options for relational change and he also offers biblical examples.
Next time you feel trapped, you’ll be prepared with the options you find in UnTrapped. And whichever option you choose, you’ll know that God used this experience to grow you and the people around you.
