SNEAK PEEK – Miss Brenda and the Loveladies


sneak-peak_1852 Sometimes Hope Is the Greatest Gift of All

Click here to download an excerpt from Miss Brenda and the Loveladies. 

Brenda Spahn was a businesswoman who wouldn’t take no for an answer when she discovered that God wouldn’t either. When she invited seven hardened parolees into her southern mansion, she expected to house them, not love them. But her reluctant decision to serve women prisoners developed into a career, a calling, and a ministry that has helped thousands of women leave prison for good.

 In the tradition of The Blind Side, this remarkable true story shows the power of living out our calling, the beauty of God’s mercy, and why loving others always changes us first.

“There was definitely a spark and a strong attraction from the first moments I locked eyes with Nick… Nick tells everyone that when he was speaking that day back in 2010, he looked out into the crowd, locked eyes with me, and had to force himself to look away.”

Kanae had experienced relationships based on superficial attraction, but she longed to find a mate with strong character and faith—a man who would be a godly husband and father. When Nick and Kanae met in the most amazing way, they realized that God—the ultimate Matchmaker– had used even their discouraging and painful experiences to prepare them for each other…for the love of their life.

sneak-peak_1852Are you ready to face life’s tests?

Click here to download the first chapter of Every Man’s Challenge now.

God tests a man. Into the flow of everyday life He sends “pop quizzes”–those unexpected trials that show us what we’re made of; that reveal the true quality of our faith and character; that show our willingness to obey Him.

Every Man’s Challenge, part of the best-selling Every Man series, will prepare you to obey. It does take guts to stand firm in facing what life throws our way. We need courage to acknowledge our own weaknesses and to change. We need understanding in handling moral dilemmas and family crises. Thankfully, God has given us the strength we need. By His power we can “participate in the divine nature” and triumph over our sins and the temptations and corruption of the world.
