AWARD WINNER: 2016 BEST BOOK AWARDS RELIGION: CHRISTIAN INSPIRATIONAL
What are the spiritual steps to success - and the spiritual tests we encounter when we achieve success? How do you keep your spiritual integrity as you climb the ladder? Author and international keynote speaker, Dr. Linda Seger tackles rarely-addressed issues that face every Christian in their professional lives: our sense of vocation; taking risks; God's timing versus ours; becoming important (and being overlooked); confronting evil; handling competition; the deadly sins we meet on the way up - and on the way down. Each chapter features interviews with a number of high-profile Christians from the fields of business and the arts.
From a young age, little girls learn what is expected of them and how to achieve that expectation. Perceived failure to meet that expectation leads to the painful feeling of rejection.
Whether being rejected by family members, teachers, coaches, or peers in the classroom, rejected girls become rejected teens become rejected women. Rejection is a seed that, once it takes root, spreads its negative emotions and behaviors in other facets of life. It impacts decisions and life choices.
In No Longer Rejected: A Woman's Journey from Rejection to Freedom, author Janice Broyles highlights several aspects of rejection and takes a look at what it means to be rejected and how isolating it can be. Through inspirational narratives and a study of Biblical accounts of women, connections will be drawn from one circumstance to the next. Women who have experienced heart-wrenching, agonizing rejection will be discussed, along with how God proved to be ever-faithful in every situation.
Journey with Mike & Nikki as they open doors to show the importance of how a father’s love profoundly impacts his children. You’ll be swept through a maze of emotion as you laugh and cry through their exploits—from the delivery room to dating—and experience with them the power of simple letters or creating unforgettable, life-altering moments. Captured in well-crafted stories are life lessons to challenge us to cherish the times that touch our hearts and chisel our character, and to stop and reflect on whether we, as either parent or child, have set the bar high enough for the role we want to play in the lives of the people we treasure.
A dog. A man. A miracle. In Bailey's Remarkable Plan, David R. Hardiman shares his poignant story of struggle, prejudice, and pain. But this is also a story of perseverance, triumph, and love. Hardiman discovers that his four-footed companion, delivered to him by chance, is more than his best friend. Bailey is also his service dog, a shih tzu with an extraordinary gift-part of God's ''remarkable plan''-that allows her to assist, to protect, and to love. Bailey's Remarkable Plan will inspire you, inform you, and challenge you to feel compassion for those suffering silently among us because of circumstances beyond their control. God sent Bailey to this earth as part of His plan, an angel in the form of a remarkable dog. Not the typical service dog, Bailey performs a miracle in the life of her owner and friend. And Hardiman's story will touch your heart as you journey along with the boy who became a man encircled by love.
As we read the stories of the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus it's easy to believe we are removed from the stories and observe the events from afar.
