A Love Worth Giving
Living In The Overflow Of God's Love

Abide In Christ
The Joy of Being in God's Presemce
 By: Andrew Murray

Instead of accepting the invitation to enter God's throne room, many Christians stand alone outside the door, uncertain and ashamed. Christ beckons them to His banqueting table and offers them a room in His house, but they foolishly give up the glory of the life He has offered. They come to Jesus as Redeemer but never go beyond the doorway to abide in Him and experience the unspeakable joy of dwelling with the King of Kings. Andrew Murray knew what it meant to be continually in the Father's presence. Read these thirty-one heart-searching readings and learn how to live daily in closer communion and fellowship with Him. Accept God's invitation and live in His blessing and glory instead of shuffling your feet at the gate.

Captured By Grace
No One Is Beyond The Reach Of A Loving God
 By: David Jeremiah

Grace--it's a stained-glass, impersonal word until it happens to you . . . Until you have been broken beyond belief and need a miracle for your soul. Until you have betrayed a loved one and cannot bring them back. Until you have befriended every darkness and are desperate for the light. That's when God's relentless, amazing, very personalized grace finds you. It reached a slave trader onboard a ship raiding Africa's coast in March 1748. He later gave the world its most beloved hymn . . . Amazing Grace.

We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not...we all know somethings wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself.

In Front Of God And Everybody
 By: K.D. McCrite

Growing up in the country is never easy, but it sure is funny-especially if you happen to have a sister obsessed with being glamorous, a grandma just discovering make-up, hippie friends who never shower, and brand new neighbors from the city who test everyone's patience. From disastrous dye jobs to forced apologies and elderly date tagalongs, you'll laugh 'til you cry as you read the Confessions of April Grace!

Here are just a couple of April's thoughts: On her sister, Myra Sue: "How anyone can be that dumb and still be able to eat with a fork is beyond me."  On senior citizen lovebirds: "What if they started smooching right at the table in front of God and everybody?"

In spite of all the loony characters in her life, April Grace is able to learn from her parents as they share the love of God-to even the craziest of characters!



It's Not About Me
 By: Max Lucado

We live in a culture of selfishness. We are surrounded by messages that say to be happy, to have ultimate purpose in life, we need to make ourselves the center of the universe. Even when we pray, many of us ask God only for what we want. Such a philosophy is fatal. In his new book, Max Lucado proclaims that to live a fulfilling life we must realize that "it's not about me." We were created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. We have but one question to ask before each decision, "Will this glorify God?" For example, an athlete asks, "How can I play to the glory of God?" A mother asks, "How can I raise my children so that others will see God?" A doctor asks, "How can I treat my patients so that God will be recognized." In a way that only Max Lucado can, we find out in It's Not About Me, how to calibrate our lives with God and His glory alone at the center of our world. It is through this "Copernican shift" that we can truly live an unburdened life with the promise of meeting His glory.

The Persuit Of God
 By: A.W. Tozer

The Pursuit of God: This book is a modest attempt to aid God's hungry children so to find Him. Nothing here is new except in the sense that it is a discovery which my own heart has made of spiritual realities most delightful and wonderful to me.
