Cover for The Salvation of the LORD not yet available

It is intended for anyone who is even a little bit interested in what the salvation of the LORD is, how you can obtain it, and how you can be sure you’ve obtained it.

An antique jewelry box. What a wonderful gift! However, if Maricella had known what the box contained, she might have allowed the thief to steal it. But she thwarts his attempt, and the box is damaged as he flees.

When Maricella has the box repaired, she has no idea that this action will threaten her family or that her investigation into the original owner of the box will bring her face to face with a suspected murderer. As the danger escalates, will her newfound faith be strong enough to sustain her while she endeavors to keep her infant grandson safe?

Cover for In Pursuit of Happiness

Today’s American Christian women have been granted a great stewardship of freedom unlike any encountered since the fall of mankind. They can pour their efforts into becoming almost anything they desire – an artist, a politician, an athlete, a mother. Then, they can change their minds and try something else, all under the guise of the nationally approved right to the “pursuit of happiness.”

In her new book, Laury L. Davis asks women to consider what they are doing with this great stewardship. How is this blessing of freedom and opportunity affecting their marriages, homes and churches? In this 10-week Bible study she challenges women to evaluate their pursuits in light of God’s purposes.

Cover for Signs of the Time
Reading signs is simple enough, but interpreting them is a different matter. Not so surprisingly, there can be more than one meaning to every sign. With perceptively keen insight, Connie Bertelsen Young opens up a whole new way of looking at common, everyday signs by applying Biblical truth to them. Signs like "Help Wanted," "Soft Shoulder," "Fragile," and "Caution" take on an entirely different meaning when viewed from a Biblical perspective. Each chapter ends with Seven SIGNificant Questions for reflection to encourage both individuals and groups to activate Scriptural teaching in their lives. After reading Connie's inspiring insights, you will never read a sign the same way again.
