A Breath From Tragedy, a Whisper from Glory
For Patrick Nolan, every climb tells a story. And now maybe it’s his own …. He’s right at the rim, staring over the cliff’s knife edge and wondering how things went wrong so quickly.
It all started after arriving home from a weekend climbing trip with his father, Kevin. That’s when word reached them. In a silent moment, they’d lost the person most important to them–her death raising unanswerable questions and dangerous doubts.
Launching a new life in a new town to escape their pain, son and father find themselves in danger of being torn apart forever. As his father seeks a route to solace on the dangerous high face of the rock, Patrick finds a path to hope with the unlikeliest of allies–a pastor’s daughter. Together they must discover the one answer that can bring Patrick and Kevin back from the brink of the precipice

Ramblings from the Shower by Faye Bryant
212 pages, 22 of 22 reviews are 4 or 5-star, Lending Enabled, Previously Free
What do you think about in the shower? And where do those thoughts take you? In “Ramblings from the Shower,” author Faye Bryant shares some of the thoughts that have come her way during the mundane task of everyday hygiene, and how those thoughts have compelled her to ask, “What about this, God? What do You think?” Follow along as Faye shares through personal experience and revelation her conclusions on just what God does think.
Is it possible to “be who you be”?
What does it mean to hear and follow “God’s heartbeat”?
Does God really have a sense of humor? Does He really laugh?
From a modern day “Good Samaritan” story, through the sea of emotions accompanying a battle with melanoma, to an honest open-heart discussion of the pain of divorce, this author shares thoughts, wit and wisdom gained from her many conversations with the Lord. Along the way you will read how she found comfort and hope in knowing that God is more interested in how we worship rather than what we wear, how we treat others rather than how we might appear, and how He wants us to trust Him that He can do good in our lives, even when things look really, really bad.
The Decree of Ester: Changing the Future Through Prophetic Proclamation by Aaron Fruh
192 pages, 9 of 9 reviews are 5-star, Lending Enabled
In the last days the saints will be falsely accused. Even today Christians feel the sting of judgment. But despite widespread discussion of the end days, modern Christians have left out a major truth from public dialogue and personal practice: the power of spiritual proclamation.
Using Esther as an example, Aaron Früh gives readers practical strategies for overcoming the false accusations of the enemy and writing decrees that change the course of their lives and prepare them for Christ’s return. Just as Esther reversed the curse on the Jewish people in Persia, modern Christians can write their own decrees of protection and provision.
Anyone interested in the state of our nation today, including pastors, intercessors, worship leaders, and teachers, will find valuable insight and practical help for healing the individuals and communities around them.

Uncommon Sense (30 Truths to Radically Renew Your Mind in Christ) by Michelle Stimpson
110 pages, of reviews are 4 or 5-star, Lending Enabled, Previously Free
Face it: Life in Christ cannot be lived according to the world’s system. But how can you know if you’re still in the dark? How can you tell the difference between common sense and truth?
In this straightforward weapon of mass victory, author Michelle Stimpson exposes widely accepted beliefs that pose as “common sense” but actually contradict the gospel of Christ.
With biblical reference, Michelle deconstructs worldly ideals such as:
• You Need High Self-Esteem in Order to Succeed
(No, you don’t. You need high God-esteem.)
• Experience is the Best Teacher
(No, it’s not. The Holy Spirit is the best teacher.)
• People need tough love
(Our love for others cannot be “tougher” than God’s love for us.)
• You Need to Balance Your Christian Life with Your Real Life
(Your life in Christ is your real life.)
Believers will leave this book with both a greater revelation of the finished work of Christ and an ear to recognize deceptive philosophies that undermine the very power at work in their lives.
