There is rest.
When our husband’s or boyfriend’s porn addiction comes out into the open it completely destroys our trust and security, not to mention our self-esteem. It’s difficult to find the broken pieces of our marriage and heart, much less put them back together, especially when we have no support and we’re told to just get over it or grow up.
Beyond the Mirror defines true beauty – beauty that transcends time and reflects the character of Jesus Christ vs. the counterfeit beauty that leads women down a path of endless striving. Ashley Weis, who has been down this long journey of never measuring up and then discovering her husband’s lust for other women, relates to readers and challenges each of us to break the glass of our own reflections and discover the joy and freedom that is waiting beyond the mirror.
Women who want to learn how to find the beauty in the storm and feel content in who God made them to be, women who have spent their entire lives trying to live up to impossible expectations of this world and themselves, women who have felt the numbness of never being good enough … this book is dedicated to you.

Have you ever felt like you were just not good enough for God? We are told we must be a good Christian, a loving spouse, a caring and involved parent, active in your community, and so much more.
Can we ever make it?
When are we good enough?
Do we feel like we cannot succeed in this life unless we are a superhero with superpowers?
Grace takes these expectations of culture and society and turns them upside down. God gives us gifts at salvation that tell us we do measure up to God’s standard. We are pleasing to Him. No longer do we need to strive and work to prove ourselves, only to collapse in frustration and failure. Now we can live in the reality of grace which bring peace and life.
Death of the Modern Superhero explores these dilemmas and gives practical solutions to change our thinking to line up with the reality of God’s Truth.
If you enjoy authors such as Philip Yancey, Jerry Bridges, and Brennan Manning; you will enjoy this book.

Here is a beautiful success story of a family successfully integrating into a plain Mennonite church community.Becky with her husband Joe and their four children grew up in the large city of Buffalo, New York. As their neighborhood digressed and became more and more dangerous, they sought the Lord’s guidance for the physical and spiritual well being of their family.Through an amazing chain of events they found themselves first in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, then later in the mountains of Pocahontas County in West Virginia where they serve the Lord in the small Boyer Hill Mennonite Church.Becky is adept at portraying embarrassing and difficult experiences with humor. You will be laughing out loud as she colorfully tells her story.From the Forward:I sat in a doctor’s waiting room a few years ago pretending to not notice the man who was staring at me from across the room. It was one of those years when “Amish” novels were hot sellers, so I had a pretty good guess as to what he was thinking.——“Ma’am?” he asked when I finally looked over at him and smiled.“Ma’am, do you know what college is?”It was hard not to let out a giggle. “Yes. I’ve been to college.” He looked surprised.“Do you know what biology is?” I suppressed another giggle and answered, “Yes, I had to study a bit of biology to get my degree in Chemistry Education.”The poor fellow looked like I had just told him that they were selling babies, two for a dollar, at the local hardware store.We spent the rest of a good hour talking together about biology and poetry and the incredible beauty of the Psalms. And I don’t doubt that by the time we parted my new friend had laid to rest some of the common misconceptions he had picked up about just who Mennonites really are.
