CRAZY FAITH by Michael Todd – Official Book Trailer

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Relationship Goals . . . Will you be remembered as a person who claimed to follow God but liked to play it safe? Or as a person who lived your life out on the limb and trusted God enough to live in crazy faith?

Noah looked crazy when he started building the ark . . . until it started raining. It was crazy for Moses to lead a nation of people into the desert away from Egypt . . . until the Red Sea parted. It was crazy to believe that a fourteen-year-old virgin would give birth to the Son of God . . . until Mary held Jesus in her arms.

There are many things that seem [ … ]

Sneak Peek: ECHOING HOPE by Kurt Willems

Start reading chapter one

Where is Jesus when we need him most? An influential pastor shares how despair can lead us to discover true hope and a deeper relationship with God, helping us emerge stronger and more joyful from times of crisis.

None of us live free of difficulties or hardships. But how can we learn to live richly in the midst of them? And even grow spiritually because of them? The answer is found in the hopeful humanity of Jesus.

As the Son of God, Jesus wasn’t exempt from suffering, disappointment, or injustice. He lived in the real world as a real person. He wept for those he loved. He felt hunger and thirst. He endured temptation, betrayal, and ridicule. He died after being unjustly tortured. And somehow through it all, he embodied hope—by defeating death [ … ]

Tendering

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6

I’ve always liked words and discovering their origins and fascinating meanings. I was once told that Deuteronomy in Hebrew meant "These are the words." The word parable is said to come from the Hebrew meaning pebble as in "a stone tossed along beside."  Good words do that I think: they come along beside us to bring us wisdom and nurture. Sometimes even the title of stories bring us insights.

While writing the second in the Change and Cherish trilogy based on a Christian communal society of the 1850s the publishing team and I brainstormed a title eventually choosing A Tendering in the Storm. [ … ]

I Can

Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” People often mistake this passag eto mean that for everything we want to have or to do,if we just ask Jesus for it, then it becomes ours for the taking. No. I don’t believe that. The fact is, the “all things” in this versemeans all things that God has assigned us to do, with the help of Jesus Christ living in our lives and being our Lord and Master. That’s what this verse is assuring us that we can do.And when we do what God has made us to do, we are strengthened for it in our body, soul, and spirit. So…I can do all things that God made me to do, that God tells me to do, that God enables me to do—because I know Him [ … ]

Your Shepherd

The LORD is my shepherd, I
   shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
   he leads me beside quiet waters,
   he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
   for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
   through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
   for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
   they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
   all the days of [ … ]
