. . . . .

Author:

Beth Moore

(You can read more on her website or follow her on Twitter or Facebook!)

. . . . .

What the book is about:

Praying God’s Word is the perennial favorite Scripture-prayer resource designed to help us decisively overcome specific strongholds: pride, idolatry, addiction, loss, depression, unbelief, temptation, and more.

No matter how overwhelmed or out of control a person may feel today, Beth boldly reminds us that nothing is bigger or more powerful than the Lord. With this landmark book we learn to wield the sword of the Spirit, praying God’s Word to break free from anything that has a hold on us until the joy and authority of Christ rules in our lives.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

This book sits on the table beside my chair where I read my Bible and journal and I bet I pick it up three times a week, easy. What Beth has done in this book is outline some common areas of struggle and prayer focus and give you the Bible verses to pray over for that particular topic. It is a lifesaver and a God-send and I use that puppy like nobody’s business. Don’t tell my small group, but they are all going to get a copy this year. I think it is one of the most valuable tools to have in your daily walk with Christ.

31 Books: Spoken For (Book #29)

spokenforTitle: Spoken For

. . . . .

Author:

Alyssa Joy Bethke (You can read more on her website or follow her on Twitter or Facebook!)

and

Robin Jones Gunn (You can read more on her website or follow her on Twitter or Facebook!)

. . . . .

What the book is about:

A great romance was set in motion before you were born. A relentless Lover is pursuing you, and He has made His intentions clear. He wants you to be His forever. How will you respond to the One who longs for you to be His with your whole heart?

In Spoken For, Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke speak to your heart about what it means for you to belong to Christ, who you are because of His love, and how that affects the way you live. Drawing on biblical promises and their personal experiences, these two friends share what it’s like to live out God’s unfolding love story.

You are not up for grabs. You are spoken for.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

When I read this book, I underlined it like it was my job. The stories are so good and the lessons are SO RIGHT ON. This is another great relationships/dating/marriage book that teen girls are going to fawn over (Alyssa and Jeff’s love story is ADORABLE!) but also glean tons of truth from the stories and advice. This book also comes with discussion questions and journaling prompts (girls after my own heart), so you can read it as a group or a young woman can read it alone and have lots to process. I absolutely loved this book and I think you will too.

A Brave Story: Lori + Marie

on October 29, 2014 in #thatisbrave with 2 comments by

thatisbravesquared[Once a week, I am going to be sharing with you a brave story sent in from a reader. You can comment, respond, encourage. Want to submit your own story or a story of a brave friend of yours? Head to thatisbrave.com!]

This week’s #thatisbrave story comes from Lori. She is sharing about her niece in hopes of calling out the brave she sees. Heartbreaking and amazing at the same time. Her words, and her name, are used with her permission.

. . . . .

I could tell you some brave stories about myself; this life affords those to all of us, but they seem to stand silent, on holy ground as my niece, abused, abandoned, and broken chooses to wake up, breath, pray, and hope for a better tomorrow.

Marie suffers from post tramatic stress disorder, renal failure, and abuse at the hands of her husband and his family. Marie was a latch key kid. She also suffered abuse as a child, and removed from her home at 15. Her Nanna loved her and shared the Love of Christ with her. It is from that legacy of hope that Marie holds on, and for her children.

Marie is a mother. It is that part of her heart that is breaking the most. Her husband and his mother illegally, and under duress took temporary custody of her children and left Marie homeless, penniless, and has kept Marie’s children from seeing her when she has tried to visit. Marie has despaired of life, but the hope that she and her children would one day be free from her families legacy and ravages of abuse, infuse the will for her to live. Marie deserves so much more to be written about her life. I am just giving a glimpse into her story because I want her to know she is seen and loved.

. . . . .
