Through teachings, experiences, dreams, and visions, the author reveals how the Lord's goodness and His glory are going to transform our apathetic Christian experience and prepare us for Jesus' return.

IN THE PALACES OF HEAVEN

Christopher Paul Carter

 

CHRISTIAN LIFE / SPIRITUAL GROWTH / INSPIRATION / ADULT NON FICTION

 

Heaven. It is a Biblical promise that inspires awe and wonder, but one that seems unknowable until you leave this earth and your temporal body behind. But what if you could experience Heaven now? What if you were meant to do it now? What if you could follow in the footsteps of Biblical examples like Enoch, Elijah, John, and Paul - all of whom experienced the Heavenly realms firsthand? The truth is, God has made a way for us to experience and live in the realm that Jesus Himself ascended to after His resurrection. It is not off-limits. In fact, there is an open invitation. In this book, author Christopher Paul Carter shares his own Heavenly journey. It wasn't a one-time event or a near-death experience. Rather, it was an introduction into an ongoing life in the Heavenly places. There's no need to wait, the doors to Heaven are open now, and God is inviting you in.

SIMPLY EFFORTLESS STYLE: A REAL WOMAN'S GUIDE TO MAKING STYLE EASY AND FUN

Lee Heyward

 

ADULT NON FICTION / FASHION / STYLE

 

Style expert Lee Heyward believes that style is simply "the outer expression of the inner you." And this book demonstrates that style is not about being egotistical or becoming a fashionista, but about easy steps that help women not only discover their own, personal style, but also show them how to dress authentically and maintain their style in order to make their own lives easier. 

 

From redefining style in general, adjusting attitudes about the importance of style, and defining personal style through special exercises, to closet "edits" and inventories, tips for shopping like a pro and learning the art of dressing from the inside out through step by step instructions, Ms Heyward goes far beyond just styling the reader. She teaches the reader how to be stylish, from a mental attitude to the outer use of clothing as expression.

LOVE THY NEIGHBOR: THE TRUE, ENCOURAGING, AND HILARIOUS TALES OF A CHRISTIAN LIVING IN A MUSLIM LAND

Alice Crocker

 

 

ADULT NON FICTION / RELIGION / CHRISTIAN LIVING / INSPIRATIONAL

 

 

"They're mostly Muslims - they'll hate you!" was the dire warning given to the author before she embarked upon the adventure that would change her life. Time disproved that and many other negative predictions. In this world of "East Versus West" or "Christian Versus Muslim" mentalities, the real-life experiences of ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher Alice Crocker disprove much of what many people expect when they become full-time residents in a country, culture, or even religious environment that is not their own. She learned one of her most valuable life lessons, "Be yourself and let who you are speak to those you are connecting with."

 

With endearing, earthy wit, infinite delight in her experiences - even the highly embarrassing ones - and most of all deep, abiding love and respect, Alice's true stories prove that friendship knows no bounds and that being a fish out of water can be the most humbling, instructional, and meaningful life experience of all. These stories, all true, will encourage readers to fully entrust their lives to God, because a joyous adventure awaits.
