Present Over Perfect Book Excerpt:

New York Times bestselling author Shauna Niequist invites you to look at the landscape of your own life, consider what it might look like to leave behind the pressure to be perfect, and begin the life-changing practice of simply being present in the middle of the mess and the ordinariness of life. A few years ago, Shauna found herself exhausted and isolated, her soul and body sick. She was tired of being tired and burned out on busy. It seemed like almost everyone she talked to was in the same boat: longing for connection, meaning, and depth, but settling for busy. But then something changed: she learned a new way to live. She decided to trade the hustle and bustle for grace, love, stillness, and play, and it changed everything. Shauna offers an honest account of what led her to begin this journey and a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people who matter most to us. As you witness Shauna's journey, you'll be inspired to embark on one of your own. She gives you the encouragement you need to: Put an end to people-pleasing tendencies Embrace moments of simplicity, quiet, and stillness Accept that you are worthy of love, belonging, and joy Written in Shauna's warm and vulnerable style, this collection of essays focuses on the most important transformation in her life, and maybe yours too: leaving behind busyness and frantic living and rediscovering the person you were made to be. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out, pulling you free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection. Join the over 500,000 others who have already started walking this new path away from frantic pushing and proving and toward their true selves.

Own Your Present Book Excerpt:

Mindfulness for Busy People Everyday demands pull us in all different directions. Our lives can feel scattered, and we often find ourselves reacting to stress rather than pausing to appreciate the moment. We rush around to keep up with our personal and professional to-do lists, yet we still feel defeated, like we’re missing out on something. There’s a lot working against us in this scattered world, but a mindfulness practice helps us reset, protect our energy, and move forward with a more peaceful heart. In Own Your Present, Dr. Candace Good provides you with a path to a more mindful life, helping you reconnect your body and mind with your surroundings. She shares engaging and deeply personal stories of her own struggles with anxiety to show you what it looks like to move beyond your past and inner critic to accept what is, imperfections and all. Dr. Good offers practical advice, therapy techniques, and activities as a map to help you begin or deepen your mindfulness practice. Owning your present, you’ll come to learn, is not only noticing a moment or a gift before you but also committing to a journey to rediscover your authentic self, so you can show up when it counts. Regardless of what is happening in the world, you have what it takes to live in the moment!

I Guess I Haven t Learned That Yet Book Excerpt:

When everything we've been clinging to falls apart, how do we know what to keep and what to let go of? I Guess I Haven't Learned That Yet, now a New York Times bestseller, is a clear-eyed look at where we go from here--and how we can transform our lives along the way. Just after her fortieth birthday, author Shauna Niequist found herself in a season of chaos, change, and loss unlike anything she'd ever faced. She discovered that many of the beliefs and practices that she usually turned to were no longer serving her. After trying--and failing--to pull herself back up using the same old strategies and systems, she realized she required new ones: courage, curiosity, and compassion. She discovered the way through was more about questions than answers, more about forgiveness than force, more about tenderness than trying hard. In I Guess I Haven't Learned That Yet, Niequist chronicles her journey--from her life-changing move from the Midwest to Manhattan to the power of unlearning what is no longer helpful and accepting the unknowns that come with midlife, heartbreak, and chronic pain. With her characteristic candor and grace, Niequist writes about her experience learning how to: Discover new ways of living when the old ways stop working Embrace the challenges and delights of releasing our expectations for how we thought our lives would look Trust God's goodness in a deeper, more profound way Follow Niequist as she endeavors to understand grief, to reshape her faith, and to practice courage when it feels impossible. Praise for I Guess I Haven't Learned That Yet: "Gentle. Loving. This tender book asks us to listen to our pain, lean into our discomfort, and trust that we can be lifted back on our feet by God and each other." --Kate C. Bowler, New York Times bestselling author of No Cure for Being Human "This book is a masterpiece. It is a journey and an invitation and a joy and a heartbreak and all the things you need to read to be reminded that hope can still be found." --Annie F. Downs, New York Times bestselling author of That Sounds Fun

Beauty is Found in the Ordinary The world is shouting at us to be more. Strive. Achieve. Overachieve. Never stop pushing. As a family practice doctor, wife, and mother, Mikala Albertson appeared to be living a "perfect" life, but really her whole world was falling apart. Married seven years to an alcohol and drug addict while raising two young children and finishing residency, Mikala eventually reached a breaking point. And surrendered.

Where s My Crown for Acting Like Everything Is Fine Book Excerpt:

Making it through the tough waiting periods that string together, can leave us feeling anything but fabulous. But oh queen, you are! Four-time Emmy Award winning journalist and TV host Kerstin Lindquist helps us break out of our most painful waiting rooms by delivering raw truth (When did making women friends become so hard?), attainable faith (For two excruciating, sweat-inducing minutes, I publicly prayed a prayer so disjointed I can’t even recreate the sounds, it was that bad), and real-life humor (My text read: “Just realized I’m naked in my kitchen making myself a martini”). Through the pages, Kerstin shares her own stories with the honesty of your best friend. She explains what has worked for real, overwhelmed, under-supported women just like you, who are living through unbearable waits: unemployment, illness, infertility, death, even seasons of joylessness that seem to never end. You will learn how to manage all the little waits that come daily, the ones that make you feel like you’re missing out on your life. Where’s My Crown offers tangible advice and actionable steps for coping through each season, including: • How to improve your prayer life. • How to break free from lack of sleep. • What foods can help you get and stay fit for this period of struggle. • The two categories of exercise that are essential for thriving. • How to find the elusive “tribe” we’re supposed to have but can’t seem to locate. • How to pick the right therapist. • How serving others can get you out of this waiting period faster. Where’s My Crown considers that those waiting rooms of life that we so dread are full of gifts we’re just too frustrated to find. Maybe you aren’t getting out because there is something inside you’re meant to discover—a person, a place, a situation that will change your life, or theirs, for the better. You just need to take a break from trying so hard to find the door.

A Titus 2 Woman Book Excerpt:

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. (Titus 2:3-5) A Titus 2 Woman is a breaking apart of these few verses in Titus 2. Not expecting women to be the perfect version of this woman, but to align our hearts with God's and allow the Holy Spirit to transform us into this woman. This book is a lot of my real life on a platter. My mistakes, my failures, my dreams, and my passion. My prayer in being so vulnerable and real with you is to create a revolution of generations of women who want to live their lives in reverence of the Lord and then teach younger women the importance of this. We get to leave a legacy behind in this world; mine is simply to love others and love God. In this, my passion is fueled by God's dream for my life from the very beginning. This book reveals amazing things God spoke to me, my lack of confidence in myself, and best of all, what it looks like to be obedient to our purpose in life! This, A Titus 2 Woman, is my purpose. I pray it blesses you.

Teacher Reflections on Transitioning From K 12 to Higher Education Classrooms Book Excerpt:

Education is a field in which reflective practice is imperative for teacher and student success and for maintaining the desire to remain in the profession. During times of uncertainty, particularly as teachers faced the dual pandemics of social injustice and the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year, they have felt demoralized and powerless. As a result, burnout among educators is becoming increasingly prevalent. It is crucial for teachers to hear reflections of others’ experiences to remind them that they are not alone in their work, provide opportunities for them to find connections with fellow educators, and encourage them to engage in reflective practices of their own. Teacher Reflections on Transitioning From K-12 to Higher Education Classrooms provides a collection of reflections from educators on their varied experiences within education and how and why they have pursued a place in academia. This book speaks to the humanistic side of academia by acknowledging the multiple passions, professions, and pathways that led each of the authors to academia. It is unique in that it is laced with the lived realities of the human side of academia from a shared stories perspective. Covering topics such as lifelong learners and identity shifts, this major reference work is ideal for academicians, researchers, scholars, practitioners, principals, administrators, educators, and students.

You re Only Human Book Excerpt:

Work. Family. Church. Exercise. Sleep. The list of demands on our time seems to be never ending. It can leave you feeling a little guilty--like you should always be doing one more thing. Rather than sharing better time-management tips to squeeze more hours out of the day, Kelly Kapic takes a different approach in You're Only Human. He offers a better way to make peace with the fact that God didn't create us to do it all. Kapic explores the theology behind seeing our human limitations as a gift rather than a deficiency. He lays out a path to holistic living with healthy self-understanding, life-giving relationships, and meaningful contributions to the world. He frees us from confusing our limitations with sin and instead invites us to rest in the joy and relief of knowing that God can use our limitations to foster freedom, joy, growth, and community. Readers will emerge better equipped to cultivate a life that fosters gratitude, rest, and faithful service to God. Praise for You're Only Human "In this most necessary book, Kelly helps us understand and find relief in the truth that God is God and we are not. Especially for those who have forgotten this and grown tired, I can't recommend You're Only Human highly enough."--Scott Sauls, senior pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church; author of Jesus outside the Lines and A Gentle Answer "A page turner! Just have a pen handy--there's a lot to underline in You're Only Human."--Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California; author of Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World "This book is a hopeful gift."--John Swinton, University of Aberdeen "Kapic offers us something compelling and refreshing. He graces us with a mature, winsome, theologically steady, and pastorally gentle invitation to receive with gratitude and rejoice once again in the triune God's good gift of finite creatureliness."--Leopoldo A. Sánchez M., Center for Hispanic Studies, Concordia Seminary "As this book helped me to see the manifold ways in which we live in denial about the goodness of limits, I made fresh commitments to seek new, healthier habits. I cannot value and recommend a book more highly than that."--Daniel J. Treier, Wheaton College; author of Introducing Evangelical Theology "In You're Only Human, Kapic once again shares from his own personal journey and at times confronts his own questions in order to reveal the beauty of God's intended rhythm for life in a world that is driven by deadlines, goals, and extremes. He asks hard and searching questions in order to reveal the beauty of God's created order and Christ's peace that passes all understanding."--Bishop Julian M. Dobbs, Anglican Diocese of the Living Word

For many, it can be hard to believe. People can be skeptical about Jesus Christ and Christianity, or they can think that they just don’t have a good reason to believe.

In Cursed with Common Sense, author Nicole Nelson shares her own journey from skepticism and doubt to faith in God.

You can have common sense and faith in Jesus. Nicole will take you through her process of realizing that God is real and how it changed her life. Cursed with Common Sense won’t tell you what to do or what to think, but together you can explore these questions and arrive at your own faith.

Companions on my Journey Book Excerpt:

When I was a teenager, my mom told me that I walked around with a cloud over my head. She had no idea the truth in her statement, neither did she know the heavy weight of that dark cloud. The cloud cast deep shadows over every area of my life. Hiding in those shadows were sinister companions that would stalk me for years. This book, Companions on My Journey, is an attempt to share my messy journey through the darkness into the marvelous light of God's love and grace. At the cross I found healing and peace, freedom, and restoration. I pray that my Heavenly Father will use my story to guide the hurting, the rejected, the abused, and the condemned into the miraculous light of his unfathomable love. Please take my hand and journey with me.
