Many Christians wonder, “Why am I stuck spiritually when I read the Bible pray, and go to church?” In Bury Your Ordinary, Pastor Justin Kendrick offers a clear map for spiritual growth to help readers:
Develop seven habits that lead to explosive spiritual growth
Realize the number-one ingredient God looks for in a disciple maker
Share their faith as a way of life
Learn to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit
Live out the truth that God is deeply satisfied with who they are
Bury Your Ordinary is a field manual to an entirely different way of life that starts with digging a deep hole, putting the “ordinary you” inside it, covering it with dirt, and walking away as a transformed person. Through intentional changes to your habits, you will discover a deeper love for God and a heart fully alive.
Bestselling author Gary Thomas transforms the way you look at romantic relationships. His unique perspective on dating will prepare you for a satisfying, spiritually enriching marriage.
In the revised edition of his hit book The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas helps single people of all ages make wise marital choices by rethinking what basis those choices should be made on.
You will be encouraged to think beyond finding your “soul mate” and instead adopt a more biblical search for a “sole mate”—someone who will walk with you on your spiritual journey.
Thomas asks, What if we focused on why we should get married more than on who to marry? What if being “in love” isn’t a good enough reason to get married? And most of all, what if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?
The Sacred Search casts a vision for building a relationship around shared spiritual mission—and making marriage with eternity at its heart.

Esther Press Presents Stand in Confidence by Amanda Pittman
Culture, church, and life have sold us narratives about who we’re supposed to be as women. If we play the part well, we gain love, acceptance, validation, and significance. When we don’t know which role to play from one day to the next, we sink in insecurity. We feel driven to people-please, downplay, settle, and perform. In all this, we accept less than the abundant life Jesus died to give us.
Amanda Pittman, founder of Confident Woman Co., explains how we can rewrite their damaging self-beliefs with the truth about our God-given identity by establishing the Four Components of Confidence:
Clarity—Embrace our identity and define our design
Connection—Connect with God and connect with others
Competency—Develop our ability and expand our capacity
Conviction—Know our responsibility and use our authority
With a new perspective and focus, we will stand confidently upon the finished work of Jesus and live boldly in our God-given
Some pastors preach boring sermons. Some church music is dull. But here’s the thing: If Jesus had been boring, the disciples wouldn’t have followed him and the Pharisees wouldn’t have killed him.
So if you’re bored, don’t waste another minute. If your church service feels like a failed pep rally that never leads to the actual game, then it’s time for you to follow Jesus onto the field where the opposition is real and the stakes are extraordinary. It will get messy. It won’t always be comfortable. But you’ll make a difference. And you’ll discover that nobody’s bored out there. Nobody.
