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

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.

 

SNEAK PEEK – Through a Man’s Eyes by Shaunti Feldhahn and Craig Gross

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!

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.

SNEAK PEEK – The One by Ryan and Amanda Leak

If you’re looking for average, go ahead and put down this book. No hard feelings.

Click here to download chapter one of  The One.

Most people will admit that they are looking for an amazing love story. We’ve all seen those couples, the ones holding hands or whispering to each other as they stare into one another’s eyes as if they share an awesome secret. We watch them and wonder, whats up with those two?

We never anticipated becoming one of “those couples.” When we met, we just worked on listening to God and preparing ourselves for the story he planned for us. What we learned and want to share is that no matter what your relationship status may be, this amazing story begins with you.

In this book we share more than the events happening around “The Surprise Wedding.” We share our triumphs and our mistakes, both before and after that day. You’ll learn healthy habits you can start practicing today, ones that will help you lay the groundwork for an incredible marriage later. God has something amazing in mind for you, but he can’t get you there without your help.

 

We absolutely believe in The One. And we believe that you’re it.

SNEAK PEEK – Hiding in the Light by Rifqa Bary


sneak-peak_1852“After four years of hiding my faith from my family, I knew that it was time. I wrote with shaky hands, ‘Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I refuse to deny him….’ There was no turning back now. I had to get out of that house if I wanted to live. Was this worth risking everything for? Yes.”

Click here to download chapter one of  Hiding in the Light.

 Rifqa Bary grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents’ orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything.

 Leaving Islam for Christianity cost her more than she imagined

but gave more than she could have dreamed.

 Hiding in the Light is the story of Rifqa’s remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity. It is also the untold story of how she ran from her father’s threats to find refuge with strangers in Florida, only to face a controversial court case that reached national headlines. Most of all, it is the story of a young girl who made life-changing sacrifices to follow Jesus—and who inspires us to do the same.

 

SNEAK PEEK: Jesus was an Airborne Ranger by John McDougall

The Raid that Rescued Us.  The Mission that Defines Our Lives.

  Click here to download chapter one of  Jesus was an Airborne Ranger.

 You are trapped behind enemy lines. You feel it every day. Powerful forces want to destroy you and those you love. Completely surrounded, you see no means to escape.

 Sadly, the Jesus we often hear about in church or on the radio is far too timid to help—more like a daytime talk show host than a dangerous Rescuer.

 Who would follow—much less risk everything for—such a leader? 

 Get ready to see Jesus like you’ve never seen him before—a battle-scarred Combatant who stared death in the face and won. This is no Sunday-school Jesus, meek and mild. This is the Warrior Christ who has descended from the heavens, defeated the Enemy, and rescued humanity. Now, he calls us to continue his mission and fight for others—our families, our communities, and the world.

 In Jesus Was an Airborne Ranger, Army Chaplain John McDougall offers an alternative to the soft, gentle caricature of Jesus. Only the Warrior Christ can impact our broken world. And only in following him can you find the life of purpose you’ve always wanted.

 Lace up your boots and let’s go. It’s time to enter the fight with the first and greatest Airborne Ranger.

 

 

SNEAK PEEK – I’m Happy For You(Sort of… Not Really) by Kay Wills Wyma


sneak-peak_1852

Is comparison-living hijacking your life?

 Click here to download chapter one of  I’m Happy For You(Sort of… Not Really)

Tired of performing? Feeling weighed down by the pressure to be Pinteresting? Does your friend’s wardrobe, body, marriage, paycheck, vacation plans, or photoshoot-worthy home décor leave you wishing your life looked more like that?

You’re not alone.

With its focus on smarter, faster, thinner, and ever-better, our cultural obsession with comparison is undercutting relationships and sapping contentment. Our friends become our audience (or judges), and our titles, activities, even kids become part of our brand. Factor in social media’s constant reminder of what everyone else is doing, and no wonder we feel drained, discontent, and isolated.

Thankfully, we don’t have to live this way!

With disarming candor and humor, Kay Wills Wyma explores the troubling effects of living in an excessively competitive culture—and reveals simple yet effective ways to escape the comparison trap. Join Kay and her family as they learn how to recapture contentment and discover freedom, authenticity, and joy along the way.
