You are, and always have been, beautiful.

Click here to download chapter one of Beauty Begins

“Beauty begins. That’s the point of this book. Our understanding of beauty got started somewhere and somehow, and probably due to someone. Now that may have been a good start, but then again it may not have. But regardless of what your past looks like, we want to offer up this word of hope: it’s never too late to make peace with your reflection.”

We live in a culture that’s obsessed with beauty. Walk by any magazine stand, turn on a television, or visit the local shopping mall, and you’ll be bombarded with the images and ideals that our culture believes are the epitome of what it means to be beautiful. And if you’re like most women, you’ve probably spent countless hours trying to measure up to this standard of beauty whether you realize it or not.

But if you don’t make peace with your reflection, you’ll end up declaring war on yourself.

That’s where mother-daughter team, Chris and Megan Shook, want to help. In Beauty Begins, they explore the origins of beauty (hint, it didn’t start with a fashion magazine) and challenge each of us to trade the pressure of perfection for God’s perfect love.

Poignant, relevant, and relatable, Beauty Begins is for every woman who wants to reclaim what it means to be truly beautiful.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jan. 27, 2016)—Jennie Allen, founder and visionary for IF:Gathering, has signed a multiple book deal with WaterBrook Multnomah, imprints of Crown at Penguin Random House.

She created the DVD-based Bible studies Stuck: The Places We Get Stuck and the God Who Sets Us Free, Chase: Chasing After the Heart of God, Restless: Because You Were Made for More and the trade books Anything: The Prayer That Unlocked My God and My Soul and Restless: Because You Were Made for More (Thomas Nelson). In 2013, she received the Christian Book Award for “New Author” from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.

 Based in Austin, Tex., Allen spearheads the fastest growing Christian women’s organization to start up in many years. She began IF:Gathering, with the help of a small group of friends, in the Fall 2013 with thejennie vision to gather, equip and unleash women to live out God’s calling on their lives. IF:Gathering hosted its first event in February 2014 in Austin, Tex., and sold out tickets in 47 minutes. In its first two years, the IF:Gathering has reached more than a million women in 50 countries through live streaming the event into local churches, theaters and homes.

 The forthcoming WaterBrook Multnomah title will be Allen’s first new trade book since founding IF:Gathering.

 “Every time we meet with Jennie Allen I come away with a clear sense of God’s moving,” said Alex Field, vice president and publisher of WaterBrook Multnomah. “We believe that Jennie’s biblical, vulnerable, and deeply passionate message will impact generations of people in the coming years through all that God is doing through her life. For these reasons and more, it is an honor and a privilege for the team at WaterBrook Multnomah to partner with Jennie on her future books.”

 “Waterbrook blew me away with their creative vision for these books,” stated Allen. “I cannot wait to build alongside such a great team in the coming years. Alex Field and Tina Constable have a big vision for WaterBrook’s future in publishing and I am honored to be a part of it.”

SNEAK PEEK: Miriam by Mesu Andrews

sneak-peak_1852

The Hebrews call me prophetess, the Egyptians a seer.

But I am neither. I am simply a watcher of Israel

and the messenger of El Shaddai.

When He speaks to me in dreams, I interpret. When He whispers a melody, I sing.

Click here to download chapter one of Miriam

At eighty-six, Miriam had devoted her entire life to loving El Shaddai and serving His people as both midwife and messenger. Yet when her brother Moses returns to Egypt from exile, he brings a disruptive message. God has a new name – Yahweh – and has declared a radical deliverance for the Israelites.

Miriam and her beloved family face an impossible choice: cling to familiar bondage or embrace uncharted freedom at an unimaginable cost. Even if the Hebrews survive the plagues set to turn the Nile to blood and unleash a maelstrom of frogs and locusts, can they weather the resulting fury of the Pharaoh?

Enter an exotic land where a cruel Pharaoh reigns, pagan priests wield black arts, and the Israelites cry out to a God they only think they know.

Who You Think You Are is Not as Important as Who God Says You Are

 Click here to download chapter one of (Un)Qualified

 Many of us wrestle with the gap between our weaknesses and our dreams, between who we are and who God says we are meant to be. We feel unqualified to do God’s work or to live out the calling we imagine. But God has a way of using our weaknesses for good. In fact, God loves unqualified people.

In (Un)Qualified, Pastor Steven Furtick helps you peel back the assumptions you’ve made about yourself and see yourself as God sees you. Because true peace and confidence come not from worldly perfection but from acceptance: God’s acceptance of you, your acceptance of yourself, and your acceptance of God’s process of change.

This is a book about understanding your identity in light of who God is. It’s a book about coming to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in your life and learning to let God use you. It’s about charging into the gap between your present and your hopes and meeting God there. After all, God can’t bless who you pretend to be. But he longs to bless who you really are; a flawed and broken person. Good thing for us that God is in the business of using broken people to do big things.

Being Unqualified Is God’s Favorite Qualification

Our culture tells us that the answer to our failures is to fix them. The solution to our weaknesses is to hide them. The secret to our success is to appear as flawless as possible. But God’s qualifying system is different than the world’s. So is his view of our weaknesses, our purpose, and our true selves.

In (Un)Qualified, Steven Furtick explores who God is as the great “I AM,” and then helps us discover our own identity. Delving into the story of Jacob, Furtick invites us to acknowledge our weaknesses and ask God to work through them.

The truth is, God has created us to be more, to accomplish more, and to love life more than we ever thought possible. But to become who he has called us to be, we must embrace who we are right now. (Un)Qualified equips us to face obstacles and failures without losing a sense of purpose. We can have a thriving sense of hope that God is working in us and through us, not in spite of our weaknesses but often as a direct result of them.

The Prodigal Is Coming Home

 Click here to download chapter one of Back in the Saddle

It’s been a long time since Colt Stafford shrugged off his cowboy legacy for shiny Manhattan loafers and a promising career on Wall Street. But when stock market manipulations leave him financially strapped, the oldest son of legendary rancher Sam Stafford decides to return to the sprawling Double S ranch in Gray’s Glen, Washington. He’s broke, but not broken, and it’s time to check in with his ailing father, and get his legs back under him by climbing into the saddle again.

He doesn’t expect to come home to a stranger pointing a loaded gun at his chest— a tough yet beautiful woman that Sam hired as the house manager. Colt senses there’s more to Angelina Morales than meets the eye and he’s determined to find out what she’s hiding…and why.

Colt’s return brings new challenges. Younger brother Nick has been Sam’s right-hand man at the ranch for years and isn’t thrilled at having Colt insert himself into Double S affairs. And the ranch’s contentious relationship with the citizens of Gray’s Glen asks all the Stafford men to examine their hearts about what it truly means to be a neighbor.  And as Wall Street recovers, will Colt succumb to the call of the financial district’s wealth and power—or finally the courage to stay in the saddle for good?

God’s love, plans, and promises for you are forever unfolding.

 Click here to download chapter one of Hope Unfolding

  I get it, Momma. I totally get it.

 Every day you wake up and try your very best. You love, give, and pour out your life for the ones who call you Momma. But no matter how much you offer, there are still days you feel as though you come up short. You worry, Am I loving these babies enough? Is this ever going to get easier? Why does it seem like I am the only one who cannot balance it all?

Sometimes, we just need hope (and maybe a long uninterrupted nap). We need someone to help tune our hearts to the voice of the Father and to remind us that He has not forgotten about us.

In Hope Unfolding, Becky Thompson is a friend who reminds you that you aren’t alone, and that God is still writing your story. She guides you to encounter the Truth of God’s presence that not only fuels you with strength, but also a fresh confidence. And beyond gaining faith that tomorrow could be different, you find hope and purpose where you are standing today.
