My experience is that the Christian life gets easier every year. We can indeed run and not get weary, walk and not faint. We can mount up on wings like eagles. His yoke is not hard and His burden is light. His commandments are not grievous. Christian living should be a joy.
Unfortunately, many sincere Christians’ lives are a little more wearisome every year. The abundant life of being more than a conquerer sounds utopian. Their spirituality becomes hard work.
Exhaustion from striving in our own strength is very often the result of a sincere Christian’s desire to please Christ. In these devotionals, follow me on my journey as I learn to live in the Spirit and not cater to the desires of the flesh. The joy, peace, patience, kindness and other fruit of the Spirit that faded when I became weary have returned as I learned, step by step, to live the amazing Christian life that He paid such a high price to give me.

Even the best marriages have their share of problems. But there’s no need to resign yourself to a life of personal pain and silent suffering. A fulfilling marriage takes time and lots of work, but it’s within the grasp of every couple, if they’re willing to make the right choices.
This book is for everyone: those who are happily married, but want to be even happier; those who may be wondering if they “did the right thing” or “married the right person”; and those who may be thinking, “It’ll never work. It can never be made right. I can’t take the pain anymore.”
Inside these pages, you will laugh a little and learn a lot about the enigma called marriage. You will be faced with many tough decisions and will have to be prepared to change. Why? Because the height of insanity is to do the same things over and over again and still expect the results to change. However, you are not alone. You will discover that there’s hope even in the midst of heartache. And most importantly, if you should choose the Lord’s way, you—yes even you—will find the strength to truly have a fulfilling marriage.

Who doesn’t love a good story? Stories capture our attention and our hearts. No wonder the Master Teacher did much of His teaching through short stories. Sometimes deceptively simple and sometimes truly mystifying, Jesus’ little stories were always packed with meaning and deep truths. The fun is in the unpacking!

Salvos Angelos discovers a hidden cache of advanced weapon designs just before Turks from central Asia invade. Can Salvos convince the Byzantine Emperor to use them before it’s too late? Or will his own haunted past – did he bury his late wife alive? – cause the downfall of the Empire and the rest of the world along with it?
Jarl Tharn attempts to unite a small band of Vikings against the Slavs to bring all of Russia out of ignorance and into God’s Grace. Will treachery and deceit change him into a bitter, angry man or can he stay the course?
Orthodox Rising is alternate history at its best. If you love Harry Turtledove, you’ll love this. Part horror, part sci-fi and all fun, in a dark, morose way.

Joni is no stranger to miracles. Her prayers and even her dreams have a habit of coming true. Her husband is regularly amazed by her strong faith and her premonitions: “I had a dream, Greg. There’s going to be a fire. I saw Kathy and Frank in the middle of it.”
Frank Scalari is a physicist. Frank, his wife Kathy, and their four children, along with their horses, goats and chickens, have just moved onto their new five acre ranch high in the Cuyamaca Mountains, 60 miles northeast of San Diego.
On October 25th, 2003, the ravenous Cedar Fire sweeps down into San Diego on strong Santa Ana winds. Two days later the monstrous thirty-mile-long firestorm reverses course and heads back to the Cuyamaca Mountains. Joni assures Kathy, her ever-skeptical best friend, that she is praying for her property and that: “Nothing is too hard for God! Not even this terrible firestorm!” But neither Kathy nor Frank believe in the supernatural.
GOD INSIDE THE FIRE is a true life page-turner of epic proportions. As the 427-square-mile Cedar Fire takes direct aim at the Scalari family’s ranch, Joni, and Danielle, her 9-year-old daughter, each pray for a miracle. They’re praying for more than just a horse ranch—they’re praying to open their friends’ hearts and minds to the reality of God. The impossibilities within this amazing true story will astound you.
If you look, you just may find…GOD INSIDE THE FIRE.
