Beloved and bestselling author Bob Goff provides you with a year's worth of inspiring, unexpected, thought-provoking teaching that will prepare you for the day ahead.
Bob Goff's first two books, Love Does and Everybody, Always, spent dozens of weeks each as New York Times bestsellers with their unique combination of entertaining, witty storytelling, and challenging, surprising perspectives. Now Bob is back with a year-long devotional made up of his distinctive, entertaining, deceptively profound reflections on what it means to live every day in light of the grace of God.
Built on Bob's trademark storytelling and unique way of helping us to see things in a new way, Live in Grace, Walk in Love takes us through an entire calendar year of meditations on how we can step out in love and confidence in every aspect of our lives. More than a tweet, less than a blog post, these devotional readings--accompanied by Scripture--will inspire and galvanize you live a more liberated, love- and life-giving existence than you ever thought possible.
Nerves of Steel is the inspirational true story of Tammie Jo Shults's remarkable life--from growing up the daughter of a rancher, dreaming of someday becoming a pilot, to breaking through as one of the Navy's first female F/A-18 Hornet pilots, to saving lives as the captain of Flight 1380.
Twenty minutes into a routine domestic flight, Captain Tammie Jo Shults is faced with the unthinkable--a catastrophic engine failure in her Boeing 737 causes an explosion that severs hydraulic and fuel lines, tearing away sections of the plane, puncturing a window, and taking a woman's life. Captain Shults and her first officer, Darren Ellisor, struggle to stabilize the aircraft. The passengers gasp for their next breath and fear for their lives. They need a strong hand to guide them and assurance that they will survive.
Nerves of Steel is the inspirational story of a remarkable woman who beat the odds and fulfilled her dreams of chasing adventure in the sky. Tammie Jo's upbringing on a ranch in New Mexico taught her the value of hard work. She also learned that gender doesn't have to determine job assignments as daily chores were delegated evenly between her and her brother. And living on the edge of a hundred miles of nothing fostered other virtues that would serve her well--independence and confidence in her abilities to live, work, and, if necessary, survive.
Reading books about pilots and watching Air Force trainees hone their skills in the skies over their ranch instilled in Tammie Jo a love for the adventure of flying. And thinking she could possibly fly as well as serve her country birthed a dream. Though the odds--as well as the recruiters--were against her, her tenacity eventually paid off. Through dogged determination and a healthy dose of God's grace, she earned her Navy wings of gold and went on to become one of the first females to fly the F/A-18 Hornet. After serving her country honorably for eight years, she left the Navy and joined Southwest Airlines in the early 1990s.
On April 17, 2018, Tammie Jo was called to service once again. Drawing deeply from her well of experience, she was able to wrestle her severely damaged 737 safely to the ground. Not originally scheduled for that flight, there is no doubt God had prepared her and placed her right where she needed to be that day.
Your life's calling is too important to let toxic people take it away. In When to Walk Away, Gary Thomas - bestselling author of Sacred Marriage - draws from biblical and modern stories to equip you with practical insights to dealing with difficult people in your life and live true to your God-given purpose.
As Christians, we often feel the guilt and responsibility of meeting the needs of unhealthy people in our lives. Whether a sibling, parent, spouse, coworker, or friend, toxic people always seek to frustrate our life's calling. While you're seeking first God's kingdom, they're seeking first to distract your focus and delay your work.
Instead of attempting the impossible task of mollifying toxic people, it's time we dedicate our energy to the only worthwhile effort: completing the work God has given us. It's only when we learn to say no to bad patterns can we say yes to the good God has planned for us.
Bestselling author of Sacred Marriage, Gary Thomas looks at biblical examples from the lives of Jesus, Paul, and Nehemiah. Drawing from years serving as a pastor, Thomas shares modern stories and practical examples for dealing with the difficult people in our lives. Each chapter includes insightful take-aways that you can apply right away. You'll discover how to:
- Set healthy boundaries to protect your life's calling
- Find refuge in God when you feel under attack
- Discern when to walk away from a toxic situation
- Keep a tender heart even in unhealthy relationships
- Love and serve difficult people by resisting their control
- Grow your inner strength and invest in reliable people
We can't let others steal our joy or our mission. It's time to strengthen our defense, learn to set good boundaries, and focus on our God-given purpose.
Multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated artist Jaci Velasquez shares how she overcame the challenges of early fame and a failed marriage and trusted God to turn her broken pieces into priceless treasures.
After the release of her first album at the awkward age of sixteen, Jaci Velasquez found sudden fame. Five of the songs reached number one, and she became the first and fastest-selling solo artist in Christian music history to reach gold status with a debut album. Despite her initial success, however, her career stalled, and her young marriage ended after little more than a year, leaving her feeling broken, used up, and sometimes useless. But God repurposed those experiences for a greater plan as her renewed faith carried her through a resurrected career, the adventures of a second marriage, and the ups-and-downs of being a wife and mother of two boys, including one diagnosed with autism.
Through a blend of personal narrative, practical strategies, and the truth of God's word, Jaci invites readers to rewrite their own stories and dream new dreams for their lives. Her life-transforming insights will guide readers in not only overcoming challenges, wrong turns, and often painful circumstances, but also in growing from those experiences and becoming equipped and empowered to help others.

Our World is Awash in White Noise
White noise is a sound-masking tool designed to cover up the things that "distract" us. And while white-noise can occasionally be helpful, there are times when the white noise in our lives drowns out the voices we need to hear. That's what happens to many leaders. We learn to tune-out distractions, but end up growing deaf to the inner desires and issues that we need to listen to. There are common white noises in leadership and ministry that we use to mask our unpleasant emotions and ignore the desires deep inside of us. Our increasingly busy lives, the numbing nature of entertainment and social media, and the urgency of ministry itself all work together to create a toxic cocktail of emotional distraction. Multiplying the problem is our emotional incompetence. Leaders are more anxious, stressed, and depressed than ever before.
Emotional healing begins with emotional awareness. Being able to identify and understand our emotions requires some counter-cultural practices. Spiritual disciplines of fasting, meditation, Sabbath keeping, prayer, and hospitality are practices intended to create space for emotional evaluation and exploration.
This book is a guide to help you listen to yourself, to recognize what your emotions, your body, and your spirit are saying to you by turning down the kudzu of white noise threatening to control your life.
Can one song change the course of a life?
Brothers Jimmy and Jack Sullivan live a nomadic life doing what they love: touring with their band, The Unknown Souls. But Jack's recent engagement to Kara has everyone looking forward to a Christmas destination wedding in Ireland.
Unlike his brother, Jimmy never expected to fall in love. But he feels a sense of peace and happiness whenever he's around Kara's best friend, Charlotte--which has him wondering what he's missing. Over Thanksgiving, Jimmy and Charlotte write a song while sitting together on the back porch. When the band sings it at a Christmas concert the next night, Jimmy insists it's the perfect love song--but a manager for another famous duo is adamant that it's the perfect Christmas song. Before Jimmy knows what's happening, he's on tour with the hottest country band around and suddenly everyone knows his name.
But fame isn't all it's cracked up to be, and Jimmy finds himself far away from those he loves--especially Charlotte. Only a Christmas miracle--or two--will be able to lead Jimmy back to Ireland, to his brother, and to love.
