Cancer confronts us with our mortality. But cancer survivors find ourselves with a second chance for life. We grapple with profound questions: Why am I still here? How did I survive when others didn't? Where is God in all this? And how should I live differently now? Those who experience and survive cancer live in bonus time, a season of grace that can be both disorienting and wonderful. In this honest and hopeful account, two-time survivor Alec Hill helps readers recalibrate expectations, grapple with survivor's guilt, and steward the opportunities for new purpose and growth. As counterintuitive as it may seem, cancer can transform us emotionally and spiritually into better people. We are not the people we were before. Survivors and caregivers can discover how encountering death can bring us to a different kind of life.

Can we really enjoy the world while trying to save it? Many of us want to do both, but find a balance difficult to achieve. Part how-to and part memoir, Schaper's book shows us a socially responsible way of having it all.

The short, humorous chapters are about simplifying: food, children, money, romance. From the Slow Food Movement to the lighting of simple fires, Schaper provides basic strategies and spiritual solutions for living well and doing good, drawing from her own experience of working for social change while attempting to live fully.

We have all experienced this. You know, that lonely, hindsight realization that we are trying to do too much. That maybe, maybe we should have said no.If you ever find yourself in that place, overwhelmed with commitments, each of which as worthy as the next, all of which are too important to give up, you don't know how to create space, and you just can't bring yourself to say no, then this is the book for you.If you've ever been stuck in a cycle with a loved one or a friend where you feel taken advantage of, or even just taken for granted, you might even stand up for yourself, or create distance from that friend, only to find yourself in the exact same position with the same person or someone new, then this is the book for you.If you have a loved one who just never seems to break a cycle that you know is destroying them, and deep down you feel you are stuck in a cycle right alongside them, enabling them, then this is the book for you.Come alongside author Amy Copeland as we take on the mammoth task of learning why "No!" can be the best thing for everyone, and then actually go about the task of doing it, one boundary at a time.Love & the Art of Saying No begins with the author's confession of a personal guilty-pleasure habit that reveals a deeper fascination with behaviors and a desire to help others. In her own journey, Amy Copeland, a pastry chef-turned-counselor, discovered helpful truths about codependence, people-pleasing and over-commitment that she shares in this practical book. Part memoir and part self-help, Love & the Art of Saying No takes the reader through the author's story, articulates the lessons learned, and offers opportunities to "Practice Your Art" through reflection and encouragement. If you've ever felt taken advantage of, taken for granted, or overwhelmed with the weight of your responsibilities, it may be time to learn that sometimes saying "No" is the most loving thing you can do. Loving well and caring for the people in our lives need not induce stress and anxiety. Copeland offers understanding of the psychology of behaviors as well as practical solutions in this highly relatable book.

Alain Emerson felt like the luckiest man in the world. A talented young pastor of a thriving church and national director of a prayer movement, he had found and married Lyndsay, the girl of his dreams, his soul mate.

He could never have imagined that, in a matter of months, he would be nursing his beautiful twenty-three-year-old bride through the final stages of cancer, and that at the age of only twenty-seven he would find himself a widower, distraught and alone. The faith that had once seemed firm and secure began to crumble. And then there were the questions. Hadn't he been faithful and obedient? Why had God not answered his prayers? Why was God silent now? Why?

Alain realized that in order for his faith to survive, he needed to face God, not hold Him at arm's length. Like Jacob, he had to wrestle, and like Job, he had to voice his pain and disappointment. He had to lean into the pain.

In this profound exploration of loss, Emerson walks through the stages of grief and the shock of choosing to face God with his disappointment. He experiences the bewildering silence of God, the absence of simple answers, and the dark tunnel of despair. Taking great comfort from the Psalms and the work of writers who truly understand grief--Elie Wiesel, Walter Brueggemann, Jürgen Moltmann--Emerson wrestles with God and with his sorrow, and emerges with a deeper understanding and knowledge of God, a stronger and deeper faith, and a sense of having seen His face.

Recognize your calling, find your place of service, and follow God to a life of purpose.

In her bestselling books Anything and Restless, Jennie Allen challenged women to fully surrender their lives to God and then offered a process to uncover and understand the raw materials He had given them to use for His glory and purposes. Now, for the first time ever, those two concepts have been combined to create a forty-day journey for women to pursue God and find the deepest yearnings of their heart fulfilled.

This step-by-step process, to fully surrender to God and then identify the threads of gifts, passions, places, relationships, and sufferings in your life, is not to get what you want but to find what God wants of you. The journal-like edition includes

  • a new introduction and perspective from Jennie
  • stories and testimonies from women whose lives have been changed by the process
  • and the workbook graphics to determine the individual threads and how to weave them together
  • Divided into forty days, Made for This will help readers not only follow their dreams but also be able to answer life's ultimate question: Why am I here?

    Scripture says "be anxious for nothing," yet most of us find ourselves increasingly worried and anxious--about our families, our jobs, our finances, our security, and so much more. We're even worried about our level of anxiety!

    Integrating both the psychological and spiritual aspects of anxiety, therapist Jean Holthaus offers this research-driven and faith-informed approach to understanding why we experience anxiety and shows us how to effectively manage it by developing three essential skills:

    - living in the present moment
    - suspending judgment
    - believing yourself to be competent and equipped by God

    Our world is never going to be a completely safe and understandable place. But with Holthaus's help, our hearts and minds can experience greater and lasting peace.

    How to invite God to step in and break the cycle of dysfunction

    Elizabeth Oates is no stranger to a dysfunctional family. She may look like the quintessential soccer mom now, but her childhood was full of uncertainty, abandonment, and many very dark days. Without a positive role model, an emotionally stable family member, or a consistent community, she had to forge her way ahead just to survive day to day. It wasn't until she was preparing for a family of her own that she began to learn the lessons that would lead to a more hopeful future for herself, her husband, and her children.

    Now she shares those lessons with other women struggling to create healthy families despite their own unhealthy family foundations. Through introspective and probing questions, Mending Broken Branches guides the reader to accept her past, understand her present, and find a vision for her future. The interactive design includes space to work through the journaling prompts provided, as well as extra-wide margins for notes of reflection while reading.

    With the gentle voice of a trusted mentor, Elizabeth encourages and equips women to cultivate strong, flourishing, God-honoring lives, and to break the cycle of dysfunction.
