Meet Nick Vujicic

Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or feet. Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nick Vujicic. Without any medical explanation or warning, Nick was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs. Three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, the Vujicic family was destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his lifestyle.
Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions, sometimes in stadiums filled to capacity, speaking to a range of diverse groups such as students, teachers, young people, business professionals and church congregations of all sizes. Today he’s an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming. In 2007, Nick moved to southern California where he is the president of the international non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs. He married his wife, Kanae, in 2012 and they welcomed their first son, Kiyoshi, in 2013.
Nick says, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!”

Story of Teenage Runaway’s Conversion from Islam to Christianity Becomes New York Times Best-seller


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 10, 2015)Hiding in the Light: Why I Risked Everything to Leave Islam and Follow Jesus by Rifqa Bary has landed at#9 on the New York Times  “Religion, Spirituality and Faith” Best-seller List for June 2015. Bary, who as a teenager made headlines in 2009 for running away from home in fear for her life after converting from Islam to Christianity, has chronicled her journey of faith that led to the high-profile, multi-state custody case in her memoir Hiding in the Light (WaterBrook Press, May 19, 2015). 

 Since the book’s release Bary has appeared on such national programs as “Fox & Friends,” “Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro,” “The 700 Club,” “Sean Hannity Radio Show,” “Eric Metaxas Show” and dozens of others.

 Bary’s story of surviving an abusive home life and walking away from everything she knew in order to freely follow her Christian faith has struck a chord with readers and those who followed her story in the news.

 “I live today in spiritual freedom, able to worship Jesus without restraint or apology,” writes Bary.

 Now a 22-year-old college student, Bary is studying philosophy and politics with the hopes of pursuing a career as a lawyer and giving a voice to the voiceless and oppressed.  

 

New York Times Front-Page Story Features Author of Forthcoming Book “Messy Grace”


  Caleb Kaltenbach, the author of Messy Grace: How a Pastor with Gay Parents Learned to Love Others Without Sacrificing Conviction (Oct. 20, 2015) was featured in the June 9, 2015, New York Times front-page story “Evangelicals Open Door to Debate on Gay Rights.” Written by religion editor Laurie Goodstein, the article examines the conversation happening within the Evangelical church about LGBT rights and gay marriage by sitting in on a meeting between Matthew Vines, author of God and the Gay Christian, and a group of Christian pastors, including Caleb Kaltenbach. In his forthcoming book, Kaltenbach shares his personal story of growing up in a divorced family with two gay parents and mother active in the LGBT rights movement. Kaltenbach became a Christian as a teenager and now as a pastor teaches that it is possible to love those around you without compromising your convictions.

SEAK PEEK – Nine Thoughts that can Change Your Marriage by Sheila Wray Gregoire


sneak-peak_1852

Is what you believe about marriage getting in the way of a GREAT relationship?

Click here to download chapter one of  Nine Thoughts that can Change your Marriage.

When you’ve put into practice all the usual advice, but your marriage still falls short of the intimacy and joy you want, what then? Are patience and perseverance your only hope for a better relationship?

Author and speaker Sheila Wray Gregoire says, “Absolutely not!” The solution to a happier relationship is not found in being a more patient, more perfect wife, but in taking responsibility for what you can do—and especially for how you think about your marriage. She challenges you to replace pat Christian answers with nine biblical truths that will radically shift your perspective on your husband, your relationship, and your role in God’s design for marriage, including…

·       My Husband Can’t Make Me Mad

·       Being One Is More Important Than Being Right

·       Having Sex Is Not the Same as Making Love

With humor and honesty, Sheila invites you to believe that God wants to bring oneness and intimacy to your marriage—and challenges you to partner with Him in that process by changing the way you think.

What Happens When Women See What Men See?

Click here to download chapter one of  Through a Man’s Eyes.

You already know that your husband, boyfriend, or son is wired differently from you, but do you know what that really means? It means, among other things, that he’s been given the gift of a unique visual wiring—and the challenges that come with it.

In Through a Man’s Eyes, Shaunti Feldhahn and Craig Gross team up to help open our eyes to something we are often blind to. They address questions like:

  • “Why are guys so visual—and what does that mean, anyway?”
  • “How do I help my son navigate this sex-crazed culture?”
  • “How dare someone tell a woman to watch what she wears! Isn’t it a man’s responsibility not to look?”
  • “If he’s tempted by visual images, is there something wrong with him? With me?”
  • “My husband is an honorable guy, so why would he be tempted by porn?”
  • “How can I talk to my husband or son about this? What can I do to support him?”

Through the compassion and candor in this book, we can learn what men have long wished we knew (but didn’t know how to explain)—and see the difference it makes when we do!

Three WaterBrook Multnomah Books Receive ECPA Sales Awards

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (May 11, 2015) – Two WaterBrook Multnomah children’s books and one popular Christian Living title were honored with ECPA Sales Achievement Awards during the ECPA Awards banquet on May 5, 2015. God Gave Us You (2000) by Lisa Tawn Bergren and Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World (2000) by Joanna Weaver were presented with the Platinum Award for exceeding 1 million copies in sales. God Gave Us Christmas (2006) by Lisa Tawn Bergren received the Gold Award for exceeding more than 500,000 copies sold.  The Gold and Platinum Book Awards recognize sales achievements in Christian literature. Awards are presented annually at the ECPA Leadership Summit.

The God Gave Us series began in 2000 with God Gave Us You and grew to include eight unique titles, two board book versions for younger children and several special editions. In each book, Bergren’s charming polar bear family patiently answers Little Cub’s questions about life, family, and faith. The kid-friendly explanation of Christian beliefs combined with beautiful illustrations has made this series a favorite with both parents and children. The latest book, God Gave Us Sleep, will be released in September.

Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World is the first book in Weaver’s nonfiction trilogy about the three siblings from Bethany. It was followed by Having a Mary Spirit (2006) and Lazarus Awakening (2011). A popular teacher, Weaver has spent the last fifteen years writing about the lives of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. The DVD and Bible study resources for Having a Mary Heart and Having a Mary Spirit are perennial favorites about Bible study groups. Her years of study culminate this July in the release of the DVD and Bible study curriculum for Lazarus Awakening, filmed on location in Israel.
