Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. $3.99 on 12/28/13
After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior’s voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world.

In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope. Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace.

Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author’s need for a great sense of “God with you”. Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue.

Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling?

Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. $3.99 on 12/28/13
“A beautifully written glimpse into heaven that will encourage those who doubt and thrill those who believe.”

—Ron Hall, coauthor of Same Kind of Different as Me

“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.

With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”

Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

Iscariot: A Novel of Judas by Tosca Lee. $1.99 on 12/28/13
The most reviled man in biblical history comes to life.

In Jesus, Judas believes he has found the One—the promised Messiah and future king destined to overthrow Roman rule. Galvanized, Judas joins the disciples, ready to enact the change he has waited for all his life.

But Judas’ vision of a nation free from Roman rule is crushed by the inexplicable actions of the Nazarene himself, who will not bow to social or religious convention—who seems in the end to turn against his own people. At last, Judas must confront the fact that the master he loves is not the liberator he hoped for, but a man bent on a drastically different agenda.

Iscariot is the story of Judas—from his tumultuous childhood and tenuous family life as a devout Jew to a man known to the world as the betrayer of Jesus Christ. But even more, it is a singular and surprising view into the life of Jesus himself, an intricate account that will cause you to ask: “Would I have done the same thing as Judas?”

Bigger than Impossible by Lydia Chorpening. Free on 12/28/13
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!

When You Realize You are Ready to Write

Thought on Being Ready to Write

You know you are getting back into writing mode because you can enter this world that no one else can see inside of until you choose to reveal it. Like a fortress carefully barricaded until it is completely developed and readied to face what lies ahead.

Show Your Love for Him: It Must Start Somewhere

Just a few thoughts crossed my mind for today.

Perhaps just a few words.

How best to express your love for Him? Is it virtue? Patience? Humility? The world would show us there are more important things.

The day passes by. The night evades our attention. But the good works one can do will tip the scale once the final day comes. Not because good works are the key, but through our Christian faith we would not want to do other than good.

Sacrifice a time to spread His love. Giving up certainty toward health and happiness through money and success is possible. Help others in need through what resources you have. Perhaps then they can share their ability and love in Christ. And both will grow in connection to the Creator.

Love in Christ,
Peter Silas

God is Able
by Priscilla Shirer explains exactly why the author is on the New York Times Best-Selling List. Looking for a taste of the inspiration that the Holy Spirit has to offer? Look no further.

She captures your attention from the beginning. Speaking directly to you, and to everyone like you. Those who have struggled to keep the power of God in the forefront of their minds. How creative this is, and it is only the beginning of the book. Wait until you hear of the miracles that continue in modern times!

God is Able ReviewThrough her voice, Priscilla Shirer guides you back into the realms of possibility that you perhaps once knew; the realms that we know are only possible through the great power of our Almighty Savior and the Holy Trinity. I abstracted one theme. This theme was successfully molded via Scripture, experience, story and hope and thus translated into one message for her audience: there is always hope where God is, and God is everywhere.

There are many eBooks out there that are based on inspirational quotes, stories of miracles and hope for the future. But few are written so that you can feel the experience through the author and his or her eyes. Get this book now and find out exactly how happy I was to read this. God speaks through all of us. We are His vessels for spreading the Word, and it is up to us to listen to one who has a few words to share.

Love in Christ,
Peter Silas

Whispers of Hope: Each Day is an Answer

Review of Whispers of Hope

Whispers of Hope: 10 Weeks of Devotional Prayer by Beth Moore

Hover Image to Purchase
Whispers of Hope by Beth Moore led me to one conclusion: each day is an answer. And, in 70 days, you will have mastered her personalized algorithm of praying to Him if you can commit just a half an hour each time.

Using her P.R.A.I.S.E. format, Beth Moore successfully portrays a tangible method of reaching your prayer goals that perhaps you have found difficult to meet, whether because you could not find the time, method or simply felt disconnected. Through excitement and direction, you will be guided through praise, repentance, acknowledgement, intercession, supplication, and equipping. It matters not your denomination: I found this to be indisputably filled with the love of Christ.

whispers of hopeThe introduction just takes minutes to read through, and you are well on your way to starting day number one. Each day gives you a unique Scripture reading followed by relevant thoughts for the day. Then, you have a creative space to jot down what comes to mind and reflect through Beth Moore’s powerful format.

In these times we find ourselves in, prayer is our best friend. It guides us when we are lost. It re-centers us when we feel to be on the brink of defeat. The secular world makes it challenging to focus on Him during silence and we may find thoughts racing through our minds, but works such as Whispers of Hope by Beth Moore is exactly what we need to know that Christ is reachable within a few minutes of our time.

Love in Christ,
Peter Silas
