In This House We Will Giggleauthor Courtney DeFeo discusses practical tips to helping your children from being focused on selfies…to becoming unselfish…on ”Good Day Orlando.”
As wife and mother of two, DeFeo was inspired to write an idea-packed book for parents filled with motivating reflections, real-life stories and creative ways to help parents turn their kids’ hearts toward God.
Even though he was born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic created a “ridiculously good life.” But after dating disappointments and a failed relationship, he reached his mid-twenties worried that he would never find a woman to love him and share his life.
Then Nick met Kanae and everything changed. But even with undeniable chemistry, they would have to navigate twists and turns worthy of a romantic comedy before becoming “one” in marriage.
In Love Without Limits Nick and Kanae tell how they improbably found each other, fell in love, and then fought to overcome skepticism from others about their relationship. Filled with practical insights that will benefit any couple, this inspiring book describes a godly courtship and the early years of the Vujicics’ marriage and parenting journey.
Above all, Love Without Limits is an inspiring reminder that when Christ is at the center of a relationship—even with serious challenges—true love will triumph.

Acclaimed author Sigmund Brouwer‘s newest novel, Thief of Glory, recently earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly, meaning they consider it ‘a book of outstanding quality.’
Thief of Glory is a historical novel set in 1942, when the Japanese invaded the Dutch East Indies. Ten-year-old Jeremiah Prins and his family are taken to a camp where they face starvation, brutality and despair. Separated from his father and older brothers, Jeremiah must take over as the head of the family in order to help his mother and younger siblings survive. Decades later, he is haunted by his memories of his time in the camp and struggles to find peace despite all that happened.
Publishers Weekly’s starred review of Thief of Glory stated, “Thorough historical research, skillful use of foreshadowing, and keen insight into the human spirit make this one of Brouwer’s best.”
International evangelist and founder of Life Without Limbs, Nick Vujicic, appeared in Christianity Today’s cover story “33 Under 33.” The article highlights 33 leaders who are shaping future generations. Vujicic was included because of his inspiring message of overcoming difficult circumstances. Born without arms or legs, Vujicic now travels the globe to share his encouraging message. In 2013 Vujicic traveled to 25 countries as part of his World Tour Outreach, and reached an estimated 400 million people through his speaking events and through broadcast media.
In the interview, Feldhahn explains, “It’s so easy for us to say, well, our goal shouldn’t be to be happy, it should be to be holy… The problem with that is we get to the idea that they’re mutually exclusive.” One of the main things couples can do to be happy, according to Feldhahn’s findings, is to “believe the best of your spouse’s intentions when you’re hurt.” Happy couples, she claims, have learned how to talk themselves out of being upset and mad, instead choosing a more positive perspective.
“It’s so easy to focus on our problems to try and fix them…but that means you’re only focusing on the problems,” Feldhahn explains. “Let’s look at what the happy marriages have to teach us and celebrate that and say it’s possible.”

FaithfulReader.com featured Hillary Manton Lodge’s A Table by the Window in the April eNewsletter. Reviewer Evelyn Bence wrote, “When I read Christian fiction, I often feel as if writers are trying too hard — to relay their faith, teach a lesson, show (never tell) an emotion, overblow a plotline, take a literary tack…or maybe it’s that they’re not trying hard enough. So what a pleasant surprise to find this novel that didn’t once make me sigh with irritation.” Go here to read the full review.
