SNEAK PEEK: JESUS, DAY BY DAY by Sharon Kaselonis

Read the first few pages of Jesus, Day by Day.

This unique 365-day devotional infuses your daily Bible reading with deeper meaning, helping you develop the habit of looking for signs of Jesus woven throughout Scripture while meditating on the Bible with a chronological one-year reading plan.
Jesus is the very essence of the Scriptures. The Old Testament points to Him and the New Testament reveals Him. If we look for Him, we will find Him on every page and in every story. When reading through the lens of Jesus, we find purpose in the Old Testament sacrifices; pictures of our Savior in the rejection and heartache of Joseph; a future hope pointing directly to Christ in the sweet love story of Ruth and Boaz; and meaning to even the deepest sorrows in Job.

SNEAK PEEK: NO OCEAN TOO WIDE by Carrie Turansky

Read the first chapter of No Ocean Too Wide.

Between the years of 1869 to 1939 more than 100,000 poor British children were sent across the ocean to Canada with the promise of a better life. Those who took them in to work as farm laborers or household servants were told they were orphans—but was that the truth?

But lack of funds and resistance from authorities push her to use a false name and take a position with a child emigration society to gain passage to Canada.

How Should Parents Respond When They Find Out Their Child Is Gay?

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

I often meet many Christian parents who tell me stories of their kids, who grew up in the church and they taught them the Gospel. Many of them in their youth or junior high years, or even high school years, made a profession of faith. As they got older, they identified as gay and they walked away from their faith. These are really heartbreaking stories. Parents want to know…how do we respond well? I think ultimately, we need to recognize that sexuality is never really the main issue. Actually, it is never really the main issue. It is definitely something that God is concerned about, but it’s not the core issue, and the core issue always comes down to faith.

The reality is, for me, my biggest sin was not being in [ … ]

SNEAK PEEK: BLESSED BROKEN GIVEN by Glenn Packiam

Read the first chapter of Blessed Broken Given.

An invitation to find beauty and meaning in the ordinary and imperfect aspects of your life; not as a call to settle for less, but rather as a way to mysteriously participate in God’s power and purpose.

Glenn Packiam wants to empower readers to find great joy, purpose, and passion in their daily living. While bread may be one of the most common items on our dinner tables, Jesus chose to take it at the Last Supper and invest deep, wonderful, and transcendent meaning in it. Like the bread that was blessed, broken, and given; readers will see how God uses ordinary experiences to cultivate their mission and their brokenness to bring healing to the world. The ordinary is not the enemy; it is the means by which God accomplishes the [ … ]
