What does the word “revival” mean exactly? “Revival is what happens when God’s people, whether individually or corporately, are restored to a right relationship with Him.” Although this is a simple explanation, the process and results are nothing short of supernatural. If words of revival are being whispered in your heart, you may be ready for this transformative experience in your own life – and a newly revised and updated book from Moody Publishers and written by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Tim Grissom is a wonderful first step in that direction.

Stories. They are all around us, and while we each possess our own unique story, they all have something in common. . . They are all part of the greatest story ever told – God’s story. With warmth and wisdom, husband-and-wife author team Robert Wolgemuth and Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth help us embrace and believe that the title of their new book is true for us all: “You Can Trust God to Write Your Story: Embracing the Mysteries of Providence”.

Asheritah Ciuciu is an author of many talents – so much so that her new book is really two books in one: a cookbook and a devotional! “Bible & Breakfast: 31 Mornings with Jesus” is a lovely hardcover book from Moody Publishers with dozens of full-color food photographs and recipes, plus it is a multi-use devotional. Continue reading
Did you know mindfulness has been practiced by Christians for centuries? I did not know this. In “Holy Noticing: The Bible, Your Brain, and the Mindful Space Between Moments”, the author shares tools to practice a mindful lifestyle and how to use it in our own lives. He takes a common sense, experienced, and scientific view of present moment awareness, and mindfulness. And, he examines and describes how to reduce anxiety in our lives by re-wiring our brain through what he calls “holy noticing”. Continue reading
“Created for More: 30 Days to Seeing Your World In a New Way” is a small book, perfect for picking up and reading a bit at a time. The subtitle of this book is exactly right. It enables you to see your world in a new way. I didn’t read it in 30 days, instead I read one devotional (about 3 pages long), and thought about, used, and applied these words for a few days. Then when I felt ready I would read the next one, and do the same thing again. Continue reading
I am so grateful to be collecting and reading all of the books in the Moody Bible Studies for Women series, as each one has proven to be a valuable gem in my library. The newest in the series was written by Crickett Keeth, and is entitled “On Bended Knee: Praying Like Prophets, Warriors, and Kings – An 8-Week Bible Study”. This book is for you (and me) if you are “dissatisfied with your prayer life, wanting to be more consistent in prayer, or looking to deepen your intimacy with God”. Continue reading
I have been waiting a loooong time for Erica Wiggenhorn’s new release from Moody Publishers – and at last it is here! “Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew – An 8-Week Bible Study of Luke” is a powerful, 40-lesson study that challenges us to “step into the streets of Jerusalem and encounter the Jewish Rabbi who turned the world upside down.” Continue reading
Do you have a dream or vision in your heart?
Joel Malm’s advice, “Just start”.
“Well, how do I start?” you might say. Joel has that covered. Continue reading
The first book I read by Hannah Anderson was “All That’s Good: Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment”. I was so impressed by this challenging book that I knew I wanted to read her previously-released titles as well, and was delighted with the opportunity to read “Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul”. Published by Moody in 2016, this book is for those whose hearts respond with longing to a simple yet powerful invitation, spoken in the Bible by Jesus himself: “Feeling worn thin? Come find rest.” Continue reading
Whenever Moody Publishers releases a new title in their Bible Studies for Women series, I know it will be worthwhile. “If God is For Us: The Everlasting Truth of Our Great Salvation” is a 6-week study of Romans 8, and was written by new-to-me author Trillia J. Newbell. Continue reading
