Looking back at where you have been, is not always the easy thing do. Coming out of this period in my life I have been fortunate to truly understand some of life’s most important lessons, ones that we often take for granted or at least I did. They have given me a new perspective on living and how to live.

Book Short Summary:

Into the Wilderness: A Journey of Faith is the spiritually inspiring and surreal true story of a young girl from West Virginia who, at the age of twelve, suddenly finds herself deposited into the harshest environment imaginable-the streets and public schools of South Central, Los Angeles. There, she struggles to survive not only the violence, crime, and destruction around her, but also the resulting trauma, depression, sadness, and sense of hopelessness. Her sudden friendship with a Jewish family at the age of fourteen leads to a desire to know God for herself and a much needed encounter with Jesus at the age of sixteen. Five years later, a God-directed mission into the wilderness of Alaska quickly builds her faith in a powerful way, and her relationship with God is strengthened as she learns the meaning of spiritual warfare. For people who need answers to the questions "Is God Real? Does God care about me? Do I have a purpose?" This book is for them.

Book Short Summary:

Dee recalls growing up in a family where faith was a mandatory requirement. She describes how that foundation helped to shape her beliefs today. Her story goes from childhood to adulthood and the challenges she faced trying to figure out how God played a role in her life. After tragically losing two younger sisters-one to sickness, and the other to murder-in addition to experiencing sexual and physical abuse, she made the decision to surrender her life to Christ and return to the church. She believed God had more in store for her life. She shares how she broke away from painfully broken relationships, a lifestyle of partying, and how she broke free from the addictive use of cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs. She shares how her life was transformed by her faith, and the lessons she learned along her journey. She also shares how her life is enriched by new relationships within the church, and how it inspires her spiritual growth. She encourages her readers to try faith. Her mission is to inspire her family and others to take a leap of faith. Her deepest prayer is that those who are seeking will experience the power of God, receive his forgiveness with the promises of seeing her in eternity.

Book Short Summary:

I didn’t share my story to hurt anyone or boast about anything that I have accomplished in life, but I decided to share it to redeem and restore the years that were taken from me through hurt, disappointment and pain. I believe this story is going to help someone struggling in the same areas that I had to deal with. No man is exempt from the trials of life and just as I had to be restored, so do you. Anything, any situation or relationship that has tried to keep you from experiencing God’s best plan for your life has to cease when you know who you are in Him. God has equipped us all with His word to use as a weapon to fight off anything that is not of Him. As Nelson Mandela said, “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived, it is the difference we have made in the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” I truly believe that, and that is why this book was born. The fight I had to endure throughout my life for my family and myself was not a flesh and blood fight, as I stated several times throughout my book, it was a spiritual battle. To be successful in a spiritual battle, you must be equipped to do so. You have to know what your weapons of warfare are. I recommend that you equip yourself with the best and that is the word of God. My story was told to bring hope to the brokenhearted and peace to the wounded and worried. I desire that through my honesty and transparency, those that are confused will get an understanding and the knowledge that they need to find their way and be patient in the process. I want you to know that you are never alone when you join God’s army. Every created being has their cross to carry, and mines just happened to be enduring unfaithfulness throughout my first marriage and restoring my health. With God’s help, if I can do it, I want you to know that you can too! He can turn every sorrow into joy. I am a living witness. I have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, and that redemption has given me the victory over the battles I endured through my first marriage and my health. I stay in prayer continuously to keep myself and my family covered because I know that as long as I’m still living it is not over. The enemy will always try to launch another battle, but at the end of each battle, I win. Sometimes when we are in the midst of our battles, we feel like we are the only ones experiencing them. I tell my story to let people know that there are others out there who have experienced the same or similar challenges that they are going through right now. And we made it so you can too! This book is about bringing restoration to lives when it feels like there is none in sight. Well, there is. Keep living and keep trusting. I’ve been told that it’s not what you go through, it’s how you go through it that matters. I hope my story helps you go through whatever challenge you are facing now or may face in the future with a confidence that it doesn’t matter where you start, it matters where you end, and your end can be glorious. I hope my story helps to answer all of the unanswered questions that you might have when “life happens.” And it does but in the midst of going through life’s challenges remember always to extend forgiveness. I continue to forgive others hoping that I receive forgiveness from anyone that I have hurt or mislead. It is key to you being free. Writing this book has played a huge role in my deliverance and being able to continue loving those who God has placed in my life. Maybe one day you too will be led to share your story as I did and witness it help someone in ways you never thought it could. Lastly, ladies, I want to encourage you never give up your hope in God and His everlasting love for us, because I can tell you from experience that He will never leave nor forsake us. Even when we mess up and take wrong turns in life, God still loves us the same. Keep your mind focused on Him no matter what the seasons may bring into your life. My pastor, Bill Winston always says, “God would never mismanage your life or mine.” He is faithful to perform that “good work” in us that He has begun (Philippians 1:6). The word of God says, “If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment” (Job 36:11 NIV). May God bless everyone who reads my story, and may He give you peace, patience, guidance, wisdom, knowledge and understanding as you carry your cross in life.

Book Short Summary:

faith [feyth] noun Faith is the evidence of things unseen. It isn’t a feeling that can wash over and away quickly, like the burst of happiness at a beautiful sunset. It’s a choice, a journey, and one that can change and shape a person over years. The shape that faith makes of you depends on your resistance and your surrender, and sometimes both at the same time. This is a journey of faith: the good and bad and messy. It’s full of questions, sometimes answers, sometimes horrible missteps. Expect silliness, stories, thoughts, musings, heartaches, and wonder within these pages. There is beauty even in ashes.

Book Short Summary:

Some of my friends have been asking me to write about my own spiritual journey in Islam. How did it begin? Maybe why? What did I find useful and beneficial? What was difficult and what gave me the most joy? Though I was born in a Muslim family, belief is a matter of conscious acceptance, not of accidental birth. What we choose to believe or reject must be done thoughtfully after due reflection and investigation because our present and our everlasting future both depend on it. It can't be left to incidental following of traditions and customs we don't even know the origin or meanings of just because our parents or elders used to do them. One's spiritual journey is as important, if not more, than one's journey in this life in terms of one's career or other criteria and so deserves equal mindshare and effort.

An updated and expanded edition of the gritty, challenging, and utterly captivating portait of the homeless crisis. Ever Wonder What it Would Be Like to Live Homeless? Mike Yankoski did more than just wonder. By his own choice, Mike's life went from upper-middle class plush to scum-of-the-earth repulsive overnight. With only a backpack, a sleeping bag and a guitar, Mike and his traveling companion, Sam, set out to experience life on the streets in six different cities—from Washington D.C. to San Diego— and they put themselves to the test. For more than five months the pair experienced firsthand the extreme pains of hunger, the constant uncertainty and danger of living on the streets, exhaustion, depression, and social rejection—and all of this by their own choice. They wanted to find out if their faith was real, if they could actually be the Christians they said they were apart from the comforts they’d always known…to discover first hand what it means to be homeless in America. What you encounter in these pages will radically alter how you see your world—and may even change your life.

Book Short Summary:

For thirty-four years, I lived my life placing God in the category as the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, and the Easter bunny. I attended a church for weddings and funerals. I hated both. Something about the chapels always made me anxious and nervous. Maybe it was because of the way I felt about a God I didn't believe in. At thirty-four years old, I was set in my ways when it came to any type of religion. I was happy with my life. I had a wonderful husband, a company that was thriving, a home I loved, a nice car, and we took vacations often. I didn't want for anything. I also worked for everything. It was not handed to me on a silver platter. I grew up in poverty, a broken home, along with bouncing from one place to another through my teens. I was determined to be successful, and by my standards, I had made it. The only thing that I failed at was the religion topic. My husband would always try to get me to go to church or change my view. For almost a decade, he tried, but it fell on deaf ears. We would disagree about it, and I refused to participate in anything religious. I thought I was doing a great job and had my life together. That could be far from the truth. I couldn't see it. It was not until God himself visited me in my living room (He knew he would not find me sitting in a church pew or even near one). That's the day I found out I had it all wrong, also the day that my husband's prayers were answered. However, he never expected my reaction or how it would ultimately affect him as well and change his life. God wanted me to give up everything I worked so hard for. However, my husband didn't sign up for that. So he too was faced with very hard decisions. Are you wondering what God told me? Well, he told me to find a lady named Hellen in another country (Nicaragua, to be exact). Let's just say my life changed that instant. First of all, I had to tell my husband I am changing the way I live and placed my most prized assets on the back burner-my marriage, my career, everything I struggled and worked so hard for. All my time, energy, resources are now going to be devoted to God. You know, the one I knew nothing about.

Book Short Summary:

Before He entered my world and transformed it miraculously, I went about my days giving no thought to my Maker. I was a high school art teacher back then. While I worked hard to impact my students and school for good, I also enjoyed weekend happy hours and a pot habit. On a couple of occasions just before I came to know the Lord, I could easily have killed myself or someone else driving drunk. This was a warning from God that my life was about to change drastically. No one evangelized me. I had warning dreams. One seared the image of a brightly lit cross and crown into my mind’s eye. In another, my friend warned me I would come to know the love of Christ. I thought to myself, “But, I’m not religious.” Nevertheless, by the Holy Spirit’s leading and touch, my heart was awakened to realize I love Jesus for some reason, deeply. Thus began my journey learning who He is, in love and in justice. Proverbs 4:23 states, Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. The question concluding this book and reflection on faith is this: How do you choose to spend your heart in all the limits that shape life? What does my love speak of life and how do I spend my love? I know that God’s love spoke eternal life over me, a sinner, and He spent all His love on man’s salvation. He purchased such grace in the ultimate sacrifice. Now, how will I purchase Him, my treasure? How do I spend all I have buying my field?

Book Short Summary:

How do you find the courage to go on when everything you knew is gone? That is a question faced by Philipp Weingartner several times in his life. Born into a family of insignificant farm labourers in a town, region, and country erased from our maps, Philipp set out on a journey—both geographical and spiritual—across the front lines of two World Wars, and eventually across an ocean to a new life in Canada. This biographic collaboration between Erich Weingartner and his late father Philipp's writings gives witness to the tenacity of the human spirit. It provides abundant affirmation that commitment to a life of faith can empower ordinary people to become extraordinary in times of great need. Based on diaries, letters, articles and sermons, A Journey of Faith details one man's lived experience of tragedy, survival, and a passion to serve the less fortunate.

Book Short Summary:

Lucy Watani-Simiyu walks you through the raw and ugly moments in parenting that come when tragedy first strikes. She wrote this book after a season when nothing made sense and it felt like she’d been abandoned by God. It was a time filled with anxiety and heartbreak, and with many questions unanswered. As she shares her story,she gives you permission to not be a hero or be an unobtainable version of someone’s faithful Christian highlight reel. You can be right where you are ... moving toward freedom. As you read, In her parental journey and counselling sessions, the experiential learning from thousands of parents raised many questions and gives answers to questions such as: How can parents connect themselves to the very heart of God? What message does God have for you as a parent? Can children question their faith in God in a nerve-wracking way to parents and yet continue to function sanely? How can parents equip themselves with the truth of God’s Word to keep sane and fulfill their ambassadorial calling. What does it mean for a parent to have a well-planned journey for a child? You ask: what do I do when my child makes the wrong choices? How do I deal with contrary or counterculture? What about parenting guilt? Where is God in all this? Filled with verses from Scripture, examples from the Bible, and practical insights from the author’s own life experiences, this book will help you combine grace, truth, and God’s Word to find strength and help children overcome obstacles. This book points you to the source of joy in your journey by pointing you to God’s Word, the truth that sets you free when the journey gets weary. The blueprint still works—not to make you guilty but to liberate you. Maybe you are a parent who is paralyzed by fear of your child’s choices. You may be anxious, hopeless, and helpless about your child’s future. Perhaps you are weighed down by guilt and shame, caught in a slump, overwhelmed with regret trapped in a dead-end parenting, and numb from a child’s choice. You may be drowning in disappointment, anger, shame, and unfilled spiritually so that God and his promises do not make sense.Instead of tying our hope to specific outcomes, let us connect ourselves to the very heart of God. With compelling storytelling and sound scriptural backup, this book gives you the biblical pathway to help you as a parent move beyond the pain of the present to a hope-filled future.

Book Short Summary:

“The extraordinary twists and turns of the spiritual journey of Elisheva Irma Diaz reflect and illumine the tumultuous era in which we live. The universally recognized border separating Judaism and Christianity is now a blur. Elisheva’s story shows that the insecurity that has ensued may also open us up to unimagined blessing.” — Rabbi Mark S. Kinzer, PhD, author of Jerusalem Crucified, Jerusalem Risen (2018), and Searching Her Own Mystery (2015) As powerfully quoted by Joseph Shulam in the foreword of this book, “There are medical books written by doctors who have researched, studied issues, and gained knowledge in their professional capacity. However, very few of these medical books were written by doctors who themselves have experienced the illness in their own bodies”. This author’s journey to reclaim her Sephardic Jewish heritage led her on an adventure that began in the early nineties with a full-time Christian ministry that eventually propelled her into a powerful ten-year insightful journey. She went from an ordained Pastor of Pastors with a successful ministry into Judaism and soon after her transition, enrolled herself in formal rabbinic studies and was ordained a Rabbi in 2012. Through this spiritual journey filled with intense study and spiritual experiences, she writes what some may think, but would most likely never say. She has further concluded without a shadow of a doubt that both Judaism and Christianity are broken but God has chosen to dwell in them both. She is quick to confess, “Christianity and Judaism broke my heart, yet, both Christianity and Judaism brought me closer to the knowledge of God”. Blessed be He!

Book Short Summary:

Behold, I give you faith! Now, you have the ability to move and live and breathe in confidence; that everything you touch will work; all that you think about will become a positive influence and change lives; you will even become wealthy in the process. It would be absolutely wonderful for God to make that pronouncement to us and it becomes so. Fortunately and to what may be the ultimate paradox, the kind of faith we seek will only come by trials, perseverance, and yes, it is a journey that we all must take. Faith increases as it is used and grows exponentially when it is tested. The true depth of these "tests of faith" does not come because you decide to seek or pursue God more; these tests come because "faith" is alive and demands to be fed, even challenged. Admittedly, faith does appear to be somewhat illogical, but most goals or feats of greatness are often met with resistance; in the end, when the goal has been met, the feat obtained and the journey completed, it is only then, in clear hindsight that you realize that this was a test of your faith; subsequently, as you reflect on your travels, you think about all the things that you would have changed or done differently, only to later realize that if things were different you may not be who you are. The Logic of Faith is a reasonable a step along the path of your journey; through personal experiences, some good, some not so good, I share my experiences and trials of faith, so you can be enlightened and encouraged as you continue on your journey of understanding. Once you embrace and unite with your faith, the world will truly become your oyster and it will not matter where you are or what you are facing. My wife, Phyllis and our two sons, Ryan and Corban, are enjoying our journey of faith together; a journey that currently has us residing in Katy, Texas and a faith that will allow us to continue to move and live and have our being in Him.

Book Short Summary:

Christopher and Hilda Talley were living what they thought was the American dream. They had two beautiful and healthy daughters, a comfortable home, cars, clothes, food on the table, a wonderful faith community, and two terrific jobs they loved. They played at life just as hard as they worked for their lifestyle, traveling in the United States and to foreign lands as often as possible. But in 1999, that all came crashing down. Hilda went from a happy and healthy person to someone who struggles for every breath she takes, after an inadequately trained pesticide tech came into her office. Two minutes after he left, she was fighting for her life. The chemical permanently damaged her lungs and vocal cords and led to two debilitating diseases: reactive airways dysfunction syndrome and vocal cord dysfunction. Their family life changed instantly. In God in the Midst of Thorns, Christopher and Hilda share their story, a story intertwined with the testament of God’s love and the power of Christian community, as they began their journey of learning to live a new normal. The Talleys discuss how, in their struggle for understanding, they both found a new and deeper relationship with God.

Book Short Summary:

It would be such a waste of time if we read the book and do not move on to a next level of followship. The journey of faith should become a cycle of faith with new levels of commitment that will be required as we start higher and deeper levels of the process time and again. Moving from discipleship to apostleship on the journey of faith will require that we sit down and count the cost once again, but this time on a higher level. Let us consider the words of A. J. Nock: The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests. So let us digest, act, and do.

Book Short Summary:

What makes a successful London business woman leave it all behind to live on a Greek island? Living in a delightful, English country village, she had everything most people dream of. After a supernatural experience while on a Greek island, Barbara believed that she was to leave it all behind and move to Greece. But why and what exactly would she do when she got there? Seeking guidance at the outset, she had asked God to answer three very practical questions. Why Greece of all places? How should I do it? When am I supposed to do all this? The miraculous answers to those three questions were to change her life forever. She left behind the city banks with the security of a regular income and initially lived the simple outdoor life on a campsite on Paros. Having given away the money from the sale of her house before it was even sold, she had limited funds and no idea how she would live. Did God really tell her to go, or was she just deluded?

Book Short Summary:

Everyone has them: storms, whirlwinds, or news that shakes your world, turns you upside down and inside out, leaving you broken. Where do you turn? How do you even begin to put the pieces back together again or is it even possible? The phone call was unexpected and unpredictable and left me completely broken. The out- of-the-blue, off-the-charts test results became a game changer. Leukemia was not part of my plan. As I questioned whether it was a mistake, I remembered that God either allows, arranges, or appoints everything in our life. What are those fiery tests of faith that have come your way? Have they become defining moments and challenges that test all that you believe? No matter how prepared we think we are, there are some things that are beyond our control but not beyond His control. Come with me on this journey of faith and find the treasures hidden within the trials and His way back from being gracefully broken to being made gracefully whole again.

Book Short Summary:

John and Pam Dysinger started life together with the desire to serve. Young and idealistic, they headed to Kenya with the passion to make a difference in the lives of children and youth. For the next eight years the classroom was their platform for ministry. Then the call came. Like Abraham’s call to leave the comforts of home for an unknown destination, their call was to leave the comforts of employment, for an unknown occupation. In a world of fractured relationships, John was called to come home and join Pam in the raising of their children. Farming was God’s appointed vehicle to unite the family. Together they worked toward common goals and experienced the exhilaration of conquering seemingly insurmountable tasks; together they experienced the fears and struggles of “failure” and the financial constraints of “poverty.” Walk with them through this candid account of their experience as they learned to follow God and depend on Him alone. Grapple with them as they faced the harsh realities of learning to farm; cling with them to the promises of God and the desire to be faithful to His call. Above all, come to know that, while your path may not be exactly the same, God wants this same kind of intimate relationship with you.
