  • The Whole WomanThe Whole Woman

    Azonwu, Ezekiel.

    We are all BROKENOur brokenness manifests in how we interact with family, friends, and especially lovers. It tears away at our security, forcing us to wall ourselves off for fear of more pain. We sabotage relationships and hinder our growth, unwilling to face the traumas of our past that hold us in bondage. Being a woman comes with its own set of challenges, but why allow your past to rob your joy of singleness and keep you in toxic relationships? Something has to change! Shoving your pile of brokenness together with another in an effort to feel whole will never work. You must end the cycle of brokenness by attacking it at its roots. If you are ready to face your past and craft the bright future God intends for you as his daughter, then it’s time to open this book and dig in. Through research and over 17 years of experience in ministry, husband and wife team Ezekiel and Kiyanna Azonwu have uncovered the path to experiencing wholeness by allowing God to perform the surgery that brings us self-actualization. The actionable information in this book has the potential to set you on a path to a better mindset, better relationships, and a better future.

  • Shades of lightShades of light

    Brown, Sharon Garlough, author.

    "I was desperate. . . . I couldn't turn off the dark thoughts, no matter how hard I tried or how much I prayed. And then I spent a whole weekend in bed, and the crying wouldn't stop, and I got really scared. I've had bouts with depression before--it's kind of a cloud I've learned to live with--but this time was different. I felt like I was going under, like I'd never feel hopeful again, and then that just made my anxiety worse and it all spiraled from there." Wren Crawford is a social worker who finds herself overwhelmed with the troubles of the world. Her lifelong struggles with anxiety and depression are starting to overcome her. She finds solace in art, spiritual formation, and pastoral care along with traditional therapeutic interventions. But a complicated relationship from her past also threatens to undo her progress. Fans of Sharon Brown's bestselling Sensible Shoes Series will be delighted to discover some old friends along the way. As Wren seeks healing in this beautifully written novel, readers are invited to move beyond pat answers and shallow theology into an experience of hope and presence that illuminates even the darkness"--Amazon.

  • Chica gay, dios buenoChica gay, dios bueno : la historia de lo que fui y de lo que dios siempre ha sido

    Perry, Jackie Hill, 1989-, author. http://id.loc.g

    En Chica gay, Dios bueno, la autora Jackie Hill Perry comparte su propia historia, ofreciendo herramientas prácticas que le ayudaron en el proceso para encontrar su integridad. Jackie creció sin una imagen paterna y eso le causó confusión con su género. Abrazó la masculinidad y la homosexualidad con cada fibra de su ser. Sabía que los cristianos tendrían mucho que decir al respecto. Pero, ¿se suponía que debía cambiar? ¿Cómo se supone que debía para de amar a las mujeres, cuando la homosexualidad se sentía más natural que la heterosexualidad? A los 19, Jackie se puso cara a cara con lo que significa ser renovado y no es una iglesia o en contacto con cristianos. Dios entro en su corazón y lo guió hacia Él, en su cuarto a la luz de Su evangelio. Lee para comprender, lee para tener esperanza o lee para, como Jackie, ser renovado.

  • Theological fitnessTheological fitness : why we need a fighting faith

    Byrd, Aimee, 1975-

    Your spiritual life should be a battle! The writer of Hebrews tells us to "hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering" (10:23 ESV). What (and whom) do we need to meet this challenge? How does simply "holding fast" turn into such a workout of faith? Author and blogger Aimee Byrd invites us to join her in some "theological fitness" training as she unpacks our call to perseverance and explores the great metaphor that physical fitness lends to theology. Learn about the "fighting grace" God has given us, and discover how we are equipped to live lives of obedience even amidst the suffering and irritations of ordinary life--from publisher description.

  • Creation careCreation care : a biblical theology of the natural world

    Moo, Douglas J., http://id.loc.gov/authorities/nam

    From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible reveals a God whose creative power and loving care embrace all that exists, from earth and sky and sea to every creeping, crawling, swimming, and flying creature. Yet the significance of the Bible’s extensive teaching about the natural world is easily overlooked by Christians accustomed to focusing only on what the Bible says about God’s interaction with human beings.

  • The minority experienceThe minority experience : navigating emotional and organizational realities

    Pei, Adrian, 1978-, author.

    It's hard to be in the minority. If you're the only person from your ethnic or cultural background in your organization or team, you probably know what it's like to be misunderstood or marginalized. You might find yourself inadvertently overlooked or actively silenced. Even when a work environment is not blatantly racist or hostile, people of color often struggle to thrive--and may end up leaving the organization. Being a minority is not just about numbers. It's about understanding pain, power, and the impact of the past. Organizational consultant Adrian Pei describes key challenges ethnic minorities face in majority-culture organizations. He unpacks how historical forces shape contemporary realities, and what both minority and majority cultures need to know in order to work together fruitfully. If you're a cultural minority working in a majority culture organization, or if you're a majority culture supervisor of people from other backgrounds, learn the dynamics at work. And be encouraged that you can help make things better so that all can flourish.--Publisher website.
