God’s Illogical Love Will Change Your Existence
Author:  Judah Smith
Binding Type:  Paperback

Publisher:    Nelson Books
ISBN:  9781400204779
Retail Price:  $16.99
From the Publisher:
Life is ___. How would you finish that sentence? In this follow-up to his New York Times and USA Today bestseller Jesus Is __, Judah completes the new sentence again and again, revealing how life is to be loved and to love, to enjoy God to the fullest, to trust God in every moment, and to be at peace with God, others, and ourselves. Judah writes as a friend, welcoming new believers, lifelong followers of Jesus, and even the merely curious.

Judah shows us the irrational love of God and the life that he intends for us to have in the here and now. With excitement and humor, he looks at the stories in the Bible from a different angle and shows how life is all about loving God and loving others.

Teen Mom:  You’re Stronger Than You Think
Author: Tricia Goyer

Retail Price:  $15.99
From the Publisher:
Everything changes the day you discover you're going to be a mom. It's not just yourself that you think about—you have a child to care for, too. While you wouldn't trade your child for the world, some days are just hard. Baby-daddy drama, dealing with your parents, and worries about school, work, and your future slam you. Your friends can't relate to your little family, and you wonder if God has turned His back on you, too.

Tricia Goyer understands. A mom at age 17, Tricia remembers what it felt like to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. She's also been the coordinator of a teen mom support group for over twelve years, and she's cheered on many young moms—from all walks of life—through their journey.

In Teen Mom, Tricia pours out her heart and shares advice for the hard things you face. She also longs to provide encouragement, reminding you that you can be the mom your child deserves—not in your own strength, but in the strength God provides.

Is Anyone Listening? Do My Prayers Really Change Anything?
While filming a documentary about sex trafficking, Jared and Michelle Brock felt a deep need for prayer in their personal lives. In an effort to learn more about prayer, the couple traveled the globe, exploring the great Judeo-Christian prayer traditions: in mountains and monasteries, in Christian communities and cathedrals, standing up and lying down, every hour and around the clock.
Follow Jared on a 37,000-mile trip around the world as he . . .

  • Dances with Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn
  • Discovers the 330-year-old home of Brother Lawrence
  • Plants prayer bombs in North Korea
  • Burns his clothes at the end of the world
  • Attends the world’s largest church
  • Attempts fire walking (with only minor burns)

Although up to 90% of us pray, very few of us feel like we’ve mastered prayer. A Year of Living Prayerfully is a fascinating, humorous, globe-trotting exploration of prayer that will help you grow your own prayer life. Jared’s witty reflections on his fast-paced journey will both entertain and inspire you to think about your own prayer journey.
Join Jared on a rollicking modern-day prayer pilgrimage . . . you’ll never pray the same again.
