Now on with the good stuff!
I am always looking for a great book to read, and I have a few you may want to put on your list for the Fall. They are from Family Christian and you will be able to purchase or pre-order these exciting books from them!
“Living Courageously” by Joyce Meyer
“In Living Courageously: You Can Face Anything, Just Do It Afraid, Joyce Meyer explains how, as Christians, we can overcome the paralyzing power of fear by calling upon the Lord. “Fear not” is written throughout the Bible. God knows His children will be confronted with fear, but He can help us resist it. “
Fear has been a demon that has tortured me at different times in my life. Throughout our journey with my husbands cancer, ALS with my grandma, and at times with life in general, fear would come and have a strong grip on me. I love how we can overcome this fear with Jesus Christ. The title is spot on: “You can face anything, just do it afraid” , this book will help you employ the power of God to overcome fear and achieve your best.
“You Can, You Will” by Joel Osteen
In YOU CAN, YOU WILL, Joel Osteen identifies the eight irrefutable traits and attributes of highly successful people. These personal qualities are tested through the ages and all types of circumstances. The practical principles guide the lives of champions are:
Create bold visions - Dare to dream big dreams. Run your own race - Focus on your unique course and goals. Think positively - Control your thoughts and attitudes.Expect Good things to happen-Anticipate great opportunities.Stay Passionate - Light the fire within and approach life with enthusiasm.Commit to excellence - Do your best and maintain high standards. Keep growing - Deal with your weaknesses and continually improve.Serve Others - Invest yourself in others.
This title gets me excited just reading it! I love to listen to Joel Osteen, he is always encouraging and gives hope. I am sure this book will be full of both.
“AD 30″ by Ted Dekker
In A.D. 30, you’ll step back into the year of our Lord, and dive head first into a war that is raging between kingdoms on the earth and in the heart.
The outcast daughter of one of the most powerful Bedouin sheikhs in Arabia, Maviah is called on to protect the very people who rejected her. When their enemies launch a sudden attack with devastating consequences, Maviah escapes with the help of two of her father’s warriors-Saba who speaks more with is sword than his voice and Judah, a Jew who comes from a tribe that can read the stars.
From there, Maviah must secure an unlikely alliance with King Herod of the Jews. It would be a journey filled with great danger. If they can even survive the vast trek across the desert, they will enter into a brutal world run by kings and emperors.
On the way, Maviah crosses paths unexpectedly with another man. An enigmatic teacher who speaks of a way in this life which offers greater power than any kingdom. His name is Yeshua, and his words turn everything known on its head. Though following him may present even greater danger, his may be the only way for Maviah to save her people-and herself.
This sounds like agreat adventure!
Based on the major themes found on the most active Facebook page in history, Jesus Daily is a 365-day interactive devotional that goes beyond even the fan page to create a deeper experience and cultural movement that celebrates your redemption in Christ. It presents a devotional thought but also challenges you to respond to each daily reflection using a variety of social media tools.
If you’re looking for a new take on devotion time, this may be for you. We live in the time of technology and social media, I love how Aaron Tabor uses those tools in this devotional.
I hope you have found something you will like on the list, I know I have!
