The Joy Of Spiritual Disciplines:
Habits To Grow Intimacy With God
Sometimes it's easy to get discouraged in the Christian walk. When we don't see immediate, significant progress in our faith journey, it's tempting to give up. Yet, greater spiritual freedom and joy await us.
The Joy of Spiritual Disciplines explores a transformational way of living that will help everyday Christians grow in intimacy with God. This book takes a down-to-earth approach to look at timeless spiritual disciplines of prayer, meditation, solitude, fasting, study, worship, service, confession, guidance, and celebration. With practical challenge questions and challenge steps in each chapter, it can be used for large group, small group, or individual study by anyone seeking a deeper relationship with God.
Finding Healing When Others Hurt Us
This book is for those who've been hurt by someone and are still waiting for healing. Maybe a church member, family member, friend, or co-worker has caused you significant pain. As a result of this hurt, you might be experiencing either a crisis of faith, confidence, or calling. Perhaps your suffering has left you stranded in a desert of the soul. If so, this story is for you.
In these pages, you'll find one couple's journey of learning to heal and handle their hurt. Also, we'll get in the trenches with some Bible heroes so we can find out how Christians are encouraged to respond when they are harmed.
Together, let's see what truths we can unearth in this desert. As we walk through the wilderness, may we find God's healing.
