Summary

An authentic, inspiring guide to help women see beyond their imperfections and failures—and rediscover the beauty within.   As an experienced counselor, Jan Proett has logged countless hours listening to women describe themselves in the worst possible light. She’s also had plenty of practice at turning that light on herself.   In this bracing and bravely personal book, Proett invites women to face the truth about themselves. And the truth is this: No matter how imperfect, fearful, shameful, and downright bitchy we have been, we can be restored. A life of fear and control can be met by peace and freedom. A heart full of rage can be overwhelmed by kindness. The demands of more can be trumped by gratitude and rest. And the best part is that every last ugly, nasty place in our hearts can be made beautiful.   When we take an honest look at ourselves, beauty is what we’ll find underneath all the stuff we’ve piled on top. No matter who we think we are or what we’ve done, there’s a beauty inside us that defines us, a beauty we’ve forgotten. Rediscover that beauty and let it tell you who you really are.

    When she moves to Amish country to find peace and healing, Madeleine finds a special community—and a special man—who pull her out of her solitude and into a new life. 
    Moving to Pennsylvania wasn’t in Madeleine’s original plans. She should still be in California and should have married her pilot fiancé a year ago—but death has a way of changing everything. Now the former Air Force flight nurse is living alone in Paradise, Pennsylvania, and working as a maid at the Lancaster Grand Hotel. She isn’t exactly a widow . . . but she sure feels like one. 
    Saul Beiler isn’t exactly a widower . . . but his wife is long gone. His eleven-year-old daughter, Emma, doesn’t know that her mother fled the Amish community—and married another man—but she does know that her dat is lonely, and that a pretty young maedel just moved in next door. Madeleine’s numb heart begins to thaw as she spends more time with the innocent and ever optimistic Emma. The stronger her friendship grows with the young girl, the more intrigued Madeleine grows about the humble, strong man raising her on his own. 
    But even as a strange attraction pulls Saul and Madeleine across a stark cultural divide, they—and everybody around them—have to wonder: What could they possibly have in common besides heartache? Will love allow Madeleine to finally find the home she’s been dreaming of all along?

    Bestselling author Stasi Eldredge shows readers how to choose a joy that stands against the tides of life's real and often overwhelming pain. 
    We are called to live. And, miraculously, to live with joy. 
    Walking in joy often feels crazy and like a denial of actual life. Yet Christians are called to "be joyful always" (1 Thess. 5:16). What does this mean, and how is it even possible? 
    In her new book, Stasi Eldredge meets readers in their painful realities and offers an invitation to a joy that is defiant in the face of this broken world. This joy does not Pollyannaish-ly ignore life's heartache; rather, it insists that sorrow and loss do not have the final say. This kind of joy is present to both goodness and grief and interprets them in the light of heaven. With deep vulnerability about her own chronic pain, surprising diagnoses, and relational struggles and loss, Stasi demonstrates how to maintain a posture of holy defiance that neither denies nor diminishes the pain, but instead leans fully into the experience of knowing God's presence and promise in the middle of whatever life may bring.

    Walk with Those Who Walked with Jesus   In the Gospels we witness the most crucial turning point in world history and the reason we believe what we do. The New Testament begins with four accounts of the “good news” of the Son of God. Drawing on the research of Dallas Theological Seminary scholars, The Bible Knowledge Commentary: Gospels explores similarities and differences among Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The authors also look at difficult or confusing passages, apologetic evidence for these eyewitness accounts, and what we can learn about Christ-like living from observing the life of Jesus.   With dozens of visuals and Old Testament cross-references, this commentary is one of the most thorough and theologically sound studies of the Gospels. Journey with Jesus as if for the first time in this detailed look at His life on earth.

    Ten years after her parents were killed, Evelyn Radcliffe is once more homeless. The orphanage that was her refuge and later her workplace has burned to the ground, and only she and a young orphan girl have escaped. Convinced this must be related to her parents' murders, Evelyn flees with the girl to Mesquite Springs in the Texas Hill Country and finds refuge in the home of Wyatt Clark, a talented horse rancher whose plans don't include a family of his own. 
     
    At first, Evelyn is a distraction. But when it becomes clear that trouble has followed her to Mesquite Springs, she becomes a full-blown disruption. Can Wyatt keep her safe from the man who wants her dead? And will his own plans become collateral damage? 
     
    Suspenseful and sweetly romantic, Out of the Embers is the first in a new series that invites you to the Texas Hill Country in the 1850s, when the West was wild, the men were noble, and the women were strong.
