A Lesson in Hope:A Novel Philip Gulley
Lessons in Hope:My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II. 1. Auflage George Weigel
In this 31-day devotional, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton shows how the Bible´s most memorable stories can help us nurture lives of peace, courage, and hope. Our capacity to experience fear is a gift from God. It protects us from harm by sensing possible danger and motivating us to act. But fear can also dominate our lives. We worry about the future, about our health, about disappointing our friends and family. When these worries play over and over in our minds without resolution, it can rob us of joy and keep us from pursuing the life we´re meant to live. In Living Unafraid, Pastor Hamilton walks readers through 31 of the Bible´s most-loved stories, showing how the people of Scripture found hope in God in the face of adversity and some of life´s most frightening situations. Each day, he unpacks a new lesson--from Creation to the Gospels to the final words of Revelation--showing how God´s love and deliverance can empower us for the battles we face today. Thoughtful, practical, and grounded in Scripture, Living Unafraid is an essential read for anyone seeking hope along life´s journey.

The terms mental illness and mental health are often used casually, but many don´t believe mental illness is relevant to their lives. However, studies show that more people live with mental illness than heart disease, lung disease, and cancer combined. Broken Brain, Fortified Faith is the story of one family´s journey through schizophrenia, navigating the uncharted waters of mental illness to find help for their daughter, Amber, and support for their family. This memoir is an honest look at the stress, anger, education, and finally, hope experienced through eyes of a mother. Along the way, she questions her trust in God as their family encounters setbacks, inadequate treatments, and additional family health crises. But with the help of trusted family, friends, education, and support groups, author Virginia Pillars learns to rely on her faith as she faces the challenges that often accompany mental illness. 1.

Heartwarming stories of rescued farm animals from the author of Where the Blind Horse Sings. Picking up where she left off in Where the Blind Horse Sings, Kathy Stevens regales us with more tales of the rescued animals at Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS), some touching, some hilarious, all provocative. We meet Barbie, the broiler hen found hiding under a blue Honda in Brooklyn who falls for the animal ambassador Rambo, a ram with an uncanny sense of what others need. Then there’s Norma Rae, the turkey rescued from a ´´turkey bowl´´ just before Thanksgiving. There’s also Noah, a 21-year-old stallion, starved and locked in a dark stall for his entire life until he came to the safety and plenty of CAS. Claude, the giant pink free-range pig, is but another of the ´´underfoot family´´, those who roam the barnyard, free and with dignity, interacting with their own and other species in startling and profound ways. The love Stevens has for these animals, and the amount of love they give her in return, is stunning and will make any listener more thoughtful of how we treat a whole class of animals in this country. Pigs, cows, chickens, turkeys, horses, goats, sheep, and more, march into CAS and into our hearts as we learn about their quirks and personalities and what makes us human. 1. Language: English.
