You can find hope and peace–no matter what
The storms of life visit us all, and at times we find ourselves ill-prepared to weather them. Where is God when everything comes crashing down? Where is he when a job is lost? When a child goes astray? When the diagnosis is cancer? Does he even care?
In When You Can’t Find God, Linda Evans Shepherd teaches you how to see God in any circumstance, even when it’s hard. With compassion born from her own experiences with tragedy, Shepherd offers you practical strategies for surviving difficult times, giving your troubles to God, praying through the pain, and finding peace, hope, and joy once more. She also shows you how to use the tough times as a tool to draw nearer to God.
No one is exempt from pain and trials. But there is always hope.

‘The Prodigal Prophet’ is a Forrest Gump-like account of a simple man in search of a pure faith among the Christian sects of Northern Ireland, the British mainland and North America during the latter half of the twentieth century and beyond.
As a satire it is hard to beat. It is spell-binding, head-shakingly absurd, comic, caustic and tragic – a see-saw of hopes raised and hopes dashed.
But it is not a satire. It is what really happened to Dylan Morrison, a fervent, credulous man in search of a Christian integrity worthy of his faith.
It’s lessons stretch far further than the narrow confines of present day Christian observance. They apply to anyone in search of spiritual solutions who hopes to find them at the feet of a guru. A Christian churchman may be the ultimate oxymoron, but the spiritual Spiritualist isn’t far behind.
Dylan finally comes to the conclusion that leaders need followers, and followers need leaders, and in that co-dependency lies the problem. From now on his allegiance is to Spirit alone.
Nevertheless, over the course of his journey, he has experienced many strange and miraculous phenomena from speaking in tongues, to prophesies that have come elliptically to pass, to collapsing in the presence of the Spirit. He has lost a son and been saved by another.
Redemption treads a winding path.

So many of us desire freedom – the freedom that is promised to us when we decide to follow Jesus. The freedom from the burden of our sin, the need to be “good enough”, anger, jealousy, and envy.
Even though we are believers we would be ashamed to say that we don’t always experience peace, contentment, and joy in our life. We are looking for the grace that God has so graciously given to us to be real in our life…
Breaking Pride is an eBook based on one simple truth:
In order to walk in God’s grace we need to tear down the the walls of pride.
A lot of believers, even though saved by God’s grace, are still walking in pride rather than walking in His grace. Knowing what pride is and learning to identify pride in your life is the first step to overcoming a life filled with pride.
Pride is rooted in fear and leads to anger, jealousy, and envy.
Sin isn’t keeping us from having a relationship with the Lord, it’s our pride.
So many of us long to have an authentic and REAL relationship with the Lord, and we long to have the fruit of the spirit filled in our heart. Our desire is to achieve these fruits through will power. But we do not even realize that the pride that lives within our heart is what is blocking the fruit of the spirit from living within us.
In Breaking Pride you will learn to identify different areas of pride in your life. Filled with encouragement, Breaking Pride will take you through a practical reading of what pride may look like in your life…
Let’s stop building walls of pride and start building the foundation of grace within our lives…

The TRUTH is……You don’t have to be perfect to delight in the Lord. You don’t have to have it all together, or have the perfectly balanced life. For so long I thought before I could move forward in certain areas of my life I needed to at least have a perfectly balanced life.
But now I realize that isn’t so. God will bless your efforts, and He will honor your humility. So when you feel like delighting in Him requires action from you to improve or be better at being a Christian, know this, God is strong where ever you are weak, and your actions for the Lord will not go in vain.
I will say it again, God will honor your humility. When our hearts are filled with pride we remove our self from the presence of the Lord, but through humility we experience God in a whole new way, and that is when we finally know and experience what it means to delight in the Lord.
You do not have to be perfect, and the “Desires of My Heart” eBook is not about being perfect, it is about BECOMING – or moving – towards God and living a life delighted in Him, which will come when our hearts have been changed by Him.
Desires of My Heart is a devotional eBook based on Psalm 37:4. So many of us believers walk our Christian walk without really knowing what it means to delight in the Lord. In this eBook we answer that question “What does it mean to delight in the Lord?” “Desires of My Heart” is a powerful eBook that will help you work to get past any barriers you may have that is inhibiting your walk with the Lord, while also encouraging you to live a life guided by The Holy Spirit.

I have not read any of these books, so they may not be any good. Some of the books from previous Free Book posts are still available for free. If you want to see all free books as they come out you should follow Books on the Knob on their RSS or Twitter Feed. Or Ireaderreview or the many free book threads on Amazon’s Message Boards.
As always please check to make sure the books are still free before you “buy” them, especially from Amazon. Prices can change quickly. This may be a one day offer. Pick it up quick. If you do buy a book and realize later you have been charged for it, here is a guide on how to return a kindle book.
