Love in the House by Chris Jeub. Free on 7/01/13
When the TLC camera crew ventured into the Jeub home for nearly two weeks of filming, they were forced to explain why they chose to have so many children, how they manage our household, and what they do that seems to create so much love in the house. TLC captured over 50 hours of footage but cut it down to a mere 44 minutes. Needless to say, most of what the Jeubs shared ended up on the editing floor. Numerous questions for their family hung in the air after the debut of the “Kids by the Dozen” episode:

How do they keep their grocery bill below $600/month?
What other creative ideas besides the Birthday Bash do they do?
What ever became of their estranged relationship with their oldest daughter?
Wendy looks like she’s a teenager. What keeps her looking so good after 13 (in 2007) kids?
Their lifestyle scares the daylights out of me. Why not them?

Families of all sizes will appreciate the Jeubs’ creative solutions to raising children and managing a home. More importantly, Chris and Wendy honestly tell their life story—trials and blessings alike—that will inspire its readers to a renewed vision for family life.

Bigger than Impossible by Lydia Chorpening. Free on 6/29/13
Impossibility is not a period at the end of faith’s sentence. Faith, in the life of the believer, is meant to be tested. Without adversities faith will never become strong and overcoming.

God has not planned crises, pain and disaster to enter our lives as a dead-end to faith’s venture. Many situations vaunt themselves as “impossible”, but when they are stripped from their “I” and “M” and become dependent on God, they become “God-possible”.

In this book:
• Live life victoriously as you learn to rely on God.
• Learn how to overcome all life’s obstacles.
• Watch depression and anxiety disappear.
• Understand why God is allowing you to experience mountains.

Each chapter of Bigger Than Impossible highlights a specific area of Lydia Chorpening’s difficult past, and contrasts it with Scriptures which make God bigger than the seemingly impossible. By utilizing the complete assurance of these Biblical concepts you will develop your trust in the God who is bigger than impossible.

About Lydia Chorpening
I was born in Iowa and raised in a strict Amish home and as Joseph, have seen my purpose in life fulfilled in most unexpected ways. From my humble beginnings, as Joseph, I saw my dreams ultimately fulfilled in my ‘Egypt.’ My husband and I were missionaries to the Philippines for eight years, and as Joseph, we were no saints at the beginning of our journey; needing to allow God to mold us into His perfect will. We traveled to remote areas, crossed turbulent oceans and trudged dangerous territories, learning to trust God as we went.

This ebook is offered free of charge on your Kindle, Nook, and Ipad. Enjoy this free Christian Ebook, and share the good news with anyone willing to listen!

Discoveries of Grace by Dr Ralph Mickley. Free on 6/24/13
The Biblical definition of “grace” simply means that God does something for me that I cannot do for myself. This action is called “grace” and is given in spite of the fact that I do not deserve it. It is a gift—a gift of grace. It is a God thing that is done for me simply out of the kindness of the heart of God. Grace is one way God expresses His love to us—undeserving, unmerited, just simply because.

Grace to You and Peace …
“God is good, all the time, and all the time, God is good!” The church I pastor makes this declaration every week. This saying has been very popular for over a decade now.

Yet, when life takes a down-turn people begin to question the Goodness of God. Why is that? Either God is good all the time or He isn’t.
When things are going well it’s easy to say, God is good. However, when life takes a down-turn and everything that can go wrong seems to go wrong, it’s not so easy to say God is good.
I want to talk to those of you who are trying hard to believe “God is good all the time…” when you hear so many voices telling you to stop believing.
I’ve been a minister for nearly 40 years. For the past 35 years I have been the pastor of one church. It has always been a small, struggling church. Yet God has done some wonderful things in the lives of people. During these years I have suffered a number of strokes and have had several heart attacks. In the natural it seems like more has gone wrong than has gone right.
As I look back over the years it looks to me like too many people I’ve cared about have hurt too much to let believing come easy. I’ve watched people suffer with cancer and their life ended too soon; marriages have turned into battlefields and many of their children have endured hard times that children shouldn’t have to endure. We’ve seen God do some wonderful things but often it seems like the miracles are few and far between.

This book will help us understand why we sometimes do not understand the ways of God.

Dr. Ralph Mickley is the senior pastor of Hilltop Christian Fellowship in La Mirada. Visit him and his church on Facebook.

The Everlasting Righteousness by Horatius Bonar. Free on 6/24/13
Another quality eBook from Chapel Library, by Horatius Bonar (1808-1889). The Everlasting Righteousness gets right to the heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ. How can sinful people be right before a holy God? God’s inflexible justice demands a perfect righteousness in His creatures; only the everlasting righteousness of the Son of God will suffice! His is sufficient because it is that of God Himself. When a sinner believes on Christ the Savior, his record of sins is erased on the basis of the substitutionary work of Christ on the cross, and Christ’s righteousness is freely reckoned to his account. This priceless gift is granted freely to the one who places his faith in the Person of Christ, not in his own merits, graces, or even faith itself. The sufficient righteousness of Chirst is the safe ground of peace and joy for the believer, as he looks not at anything in himself but the all-sufficient Lamb of God!
Live in the Joy of the Lord by Pastor Dennis Williams. Free on 6/24/13
People today are seeking many sources of Joy and Happiness. Some of these sources may appear to bring satisfaction temporarily. Lasting joy exists when everything around us is not so joyful. Lasting joy is that joy that is deep inside the person. The Joy of the Lord that is present when things are not so joyful.

Principles for the Gathering of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ by Gospel Fellowships. Free on 6/22/13
The Scriptures declare that the Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. This preaching and spreading of the Gospel will be done not by the ingenuity of men, but by the working of the Spirit of God. Do you want to be involved with God’s work at the end of the age? God uses the simple to confound the wise. His ways are not our ways. We need revival in our countries like what we see in the underground house Churches in China.

-Prepare for coming persecution in non-persecuted countries.
-Learn Principles of how to gather as the Church from the Book of Acts and current underground Churches.
-Access resources that will help your gathering or house Church meeting.
-Experience personal revival and the Spirit’s empowerment.
From the Foreword:
The time is now. Count the cost. You will be persecuted, tested, and tried. You will be misunderstood, hated by the world, and sometimes hated even by the members of your own household. There will be tears, heartache, tribulation, suffering and pain. But, you will be living for the One who is worthy of all, and whose eternal kingdom cannot be shaken nor ever fade away. You will have the privilege of serving the King of kings and the Lord of all lords. Moreover, you will one day have the awesome indescribable experience of seeing His glorious face and hearing Him call you by name as His own. – brother Brian

Hope – Four Week Mini Bible Study by Heather Bixler. Free on 6/16/13

Paul the Disciple by Nathan M. Hausman. Free on 6/16/13
Are you a Bible reader? Have you ever wondered about the Apostle Paul’s “thorn in the flesh, messenger of Satan?” If so, then you are going to like this book. For as long as I have been reading the Bible as a part of my daily discipline, I have been perplexed by Paul’s statements in 2 Corinthians 12:5-10, a passage commonly referred to as his “thorn in the flesh.” What was it? How did he get it? Who sent it to him and why? What was it doing to him that he would describe as “torment?”

It was in April of 2011 that I set out to find the answers. After two years of research, journaling, editing, reading, contemplation, and prayer, I have completed my quest and published my findings for your reading pleasure.

I have to believe that there are other Christians out there that would want to know the truth about Paul’s thorn. Think about this: There is only one time in New Testament Scripture when Jesus said ‘no’ to an earnest request; am I the only one that finds that odd? In His days spent here on earth, Jesus gave sight to the blind, healed multitudes of people, raised the dead to life, and delivered many from demon possession; why say no to the Apostle Paul?

What I can tell you upfront is that I ventured out to find a few simple answers for my own personal satisfaction, but what I found in the process was something that I am compelled to share with you.

This book, brothers and sisters, is my offering to you. Please do enjoy!

Hope Being Gone by Cherie Hill. Free on 6/14/13
You thought you had hope, until tragedy took over. You thought life was in control, until it erupted into chaos. You assumed you were strong, until you were suddenly brought to your knees. You thought you walked by faith, until you found yourself consumed in the darkness of despair. Hope is gone. You’re facing circumstances in life that seem insurmountable, even for God.

We quickly realize that our problem isn’t that we haven’t trusted God, but that we trusted God and believed He’d come through . . . and He didn’t. He could have prevented our pain and suffering, but He chose not to. We cry out, but there is no answer and our faith takes a tragic turn.

But God’s silence is not His solution and His absence is not His answer. His goals are eternal, not earthly. You want a way out . . . He’s making a way through. You crave comfort . . . and He brings you to the Cross. It is there that we realize: we can’t deliver ourselves from a crisis that God himself has orchestrated.

God is taking you on a journey of faith, and hope is just a step away . . . but a step in the right direction takes you right through the valley. And it is there, where all hope seems gone that God takes your faith places you never knew it could go. He’s teaching you to trust Him through your doubt and in your fears. He’s growing your faith and showing you that you can trust Him . . . even when there is no evidence that you should.

Sincerely, Jesus by Edward Goble. Free on 6/10/13
Can you imagine thumbing through your daily mail and finding a letter from Jesus Christ? Not a prank, not a hoax, but the genuine article – a letter from heaven, from the risen Lord, written personally to you and your church. If hearing from God sounds intriguing, then this little book is for you. Several decades after His death, burial, resurrection and ascension, Jesus revealed Himself, in a vision from heaven, to the apostle John. Jesus directed John to write as He dictated seven letters to seven communities of faith scattered around Asia Minor. These personal notes are found in Revelation chapters two and three. In Sincerely, Jesus we will look at the amazing relevance each letter holds for life in the twenty-first century. All Jesus asks of us is to read with a listening heart and a willingness to make the adjustments, both in our personal lives, and in our churches, that the Holy Spirit prescribes.
Break Free by E’yen Gardner. Free on 6/10/13
My friend, there is a leader inside of you. It’s what God has created you to be!
However, many fears, giants, mountains, and armies have hindered you from
possessing all you know that God has for you. I’m sure there are times when you
can see the land that God has promised you, but can’t see how to get past the
obstacles that lie ahead. Nevertheless, will you settle for mediocrity? Will you live
bound by fears and doubts, or will you choose to confront them and possess what
was promised to you?

It’s time to Break Free!
We have stayed in the Wilderness long enough, and it’s time to know God on the
other side of the Jordan.

31 Keys to Possessing Your Promise by Rodney Burton. Free on 6/6/13
God had given a promise to Abraham that his descendants would possess a vast land (see Genesis 12). As time passed, it began to seem less possible for the descendants of Abraham to receive their promised inheritance. They spent years in slavery in Egypt until God raised up Moses as a deliverer. As they journeyed from their place of bondage to their land of inheritance, it was necessary for them to defeat the armies that inhabited the land they had been promised to be given as their possession.

In Joshua we read that the children of Israel defeated thirty-one kings and in order to inherit their promise. From the names of those cities we will consider our own keys to inheriting God’s promise. From the definition of these cities we will draw out a thirty-one key devotional journey to our inheritance. Some of the keys will involve what we must overcome or gain victory over; other keys will be principles or characteristics that are important for us to embrace. Together we can discover and use the keys, enabling us to possess our promised inheritance.

Arresting Grace by Michael Joel Green. Free on 6/6/13
Author’s Note: This abridged version of ARRESTING GRACE is leaner, stronger and more focused. I hope you enjoy.

Michael Green expected many things from his 38th year: to redeem a failed acting/music/writing career, to build upon friendships and church relationships, and most of all, to finally meet someone. He’d been looking—and waiting—a long time.

What he didn’t expect was to get arrested for a DUI, driving home from a church dinner. That changed everything.

It was a shame, too. Two weeks earlier, he had met someone.

ARRESTING GRACE is the story of Michael Green’s DUI arrest, as well as his long distance relationship with Jessie, a lovely woman from the Bay Area. Thoughtfully written and raw, with unflinching honesty, Arresting Grace recalls such works as Donald Miller’s BLUE LIKE JAZZ and Anne LaMott’s GRACE (EVENTUALLY). A man searches for answers most earnestly when he’s brought low. This is the story of a man, fallen lower than imaginable, searching for God in the midst…and finding grace in the most unexpected places.
