Happiness Junkie: A 12 Step Program to Find Inner Peace and Change Your Life

by Caren Albers

In this true confession, self-help memoir, Caren Albers searches much like Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat Pray Love (minus the exquisite food, exotic locations, and sensuous lover) for what she truly wants from life, HAPPINESS.

Shortly after her eighteenth birthday, a shocking event inspires a journey to change her life and find true happiness. She discovers TWELVE STEPS that create happiness – twelve wonder wisdoms that when put into practice can turn anyone into a HAPPINESS JUNKIE.

If you want to invite more happiness into your life or are healing from a painful past, this book is for you, true, tender, and transformational. Find out how happiness gets sidetracked and what ghosts and old dances stand in the way of creating your own happy endings.

“Happiness Junkie lights a path to happiness and beyond. Through personal story she unfolds the 12 steps that inspired her own transformation. Albers opens her heart on every page. She demonstrates in tender and relevant ways that finding the way to happiness is possible and worth every step of the journey.” Mary Anne Radmacher, author of HONEY IN YOUR HEART and SHE – A CELEBRATION OF THE GREATNESS IN EVERY WOMAN

Christianish: What If We’re Not Really Following Jesus at All?

by Mark Steele

It may feel like authentic faith. It may even look like the real deal. Yet it’s often easy to settle for the souvenir t-shirtâ??the appearance of a transformed heartâ??instead of taking the actual trip through true life-change. We find ourselves settling for a personal faith that’s been polluted by culture, and diluted by other people’s take on spirituality.

Christianish tells the story of one man’s journey to move from the in-between to a life that’s centered on Christ. To move forward, author Mark Steele goes back to the beginning, to examine Christ’s life and words. Through stories and insights that are sometimes profound, often hilarious, and always honest, Mark delivers a compelling look at what our faith is all about.

Discovering the Hidden Language of God

by Linda Spiker

It is the Glory of God to conceal a matter and the honor of Kings to seek it out! Hidden in the word are profound mysteries that give us insight into the day in which we live; historical patterns and clues that would shed light on much of what we now experience. The good news is these mysteries are not hidden from us; they are hidden for us to be found. God is looking for true seekers who will dig for the hidden messages in the word that uncover significant cycles and patterns from the past that will reveal the events of the future. These are the ones who will be truly equipped to prepare the way of the Lord. These are God’s end time harvesters.

Are you a true seeker? Then this book is for you.

Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest

by Edward T. Welch

Edward T. Welch reveals God’s plan for encouraging those in the grips of fear. One of the haunting dilemmas of the human condition is that fear is “an inescapable feature of earthly life.” Every person who has lived on this earth has encountered fear. Tragically, for this reason our race for the good life finds us all too often “running scared.”

In his new release, Running Scared, Edward T. Welch investigates the roots of fear in the human soul and the ramifications of living in the grips of anxiety, worry, and dread. Welch encourages readers to discover for themselves that the Bible is full of beautiful words of comfort for fearful people (and that every single person is afraid of something). Within the framework of thirty topical meditations, Welch offers sound biblical theology and moment-by-moment, thoughtful encouragement for life-saving rescue in the midst of the heart and mind battlefield of rampant panic-stricken responses.

This comprehensive primer on the topic of fear, worry, and the rest of God will have readers retreating to scripture for invariable constancy, stalwart care, and robust comfort, instead of as Welch terms it, “hitting the default switch” by responding with characteristic human independence, control, and self-protectiveness. Running Scared affirms that, through Scripture, God speaks directly to our fears:

  • On money and possessions
  • On people and their judgments
  • On death, pain, and punishment

Welch’s lively text provides convincing evidences that humanity’s struggle against active and dormant fears are countless. The good news is that God provides both the remedy and the cure for this malady in the person of Jesus Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, and through powerful, life-altering promises in Scripture. Far more than merely another psychology “self-help” guide, Running Scared serves as a biblical roadmap to a life of serenity and security.

Edward T. Welch is the author of such best-selling titles as: Depression: A Stubborn Darkness, Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave, Blame It On the Brain and When People Are Big and God Is Small. He received a PhD in Counseling Psychology (Neuropsychology) from the University of Utah, and a M.Div. from the Biblical Theological Seminary in Hatfield, PA. Welch is a licensed psychologist and works as a counselor, faculty member, and director of the School of Biblical Counseling at the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation in Glenside, Pa. His written work and speaking ministry, which are characterized by sound biblical exposition and paired with dynamic practical application, are in great demand by today’s modern church. Ed is married to Sheri and has two amazing daughters. He is also the glad owner of a growing guitar collection and competes in the Master’s swim event where he happily placed fourth in the country.

Dreamscape: How to Lucid Dream with ease (Vol.1)

by Nick Barrett

Dreamscape-series one is compiled into several short eBooks that offers you an easy to understand complete guide to navigating consciously in your dreams. The series one compilation covers the essential topics to the hidden secrets of dream reality.

Navigating through the fabric of time and space has been man’s fascination for millennia. Is man made up of flesh and bone alone or is there an invisible energetic system that lay deep within the power of the soul? Can we experience a different type of conscious awareness?

Bending the rules of our known linear peripheral can be enhanced through the sacred art of lucid dreaming. Knowing we are in a dream and realising that we can experience two different realities simultaneously, brings us a whole array of in-questionable delight. We begin to move on from the fear of death, we converse with other entities, not from this planet, and we stretch the rubber band of our own consciousness.

Breaking the mould of what we perceive to be real in this reality makes us finally understand the reflective nature in both dream and wake. Our dreams can offer us an abundance of guidance so that we can sail calmly through the seas of physical living.

Being able to control your dream experience on command, instead of the dream controlling you, will certify that anything and everything is possible.

By discovering your wildest dreams, to actually live and breathe these alternate states of consciousness is no longer just a ‘figure of speech’. You will gain the ability to navigate to your dreamscape anytime you wish to. You will discover a heightened sensory perception that is more attuned to your inner and outer worlds of divine guidance.

The Dreamscape-series one is suitable for all who wish to become accustomed to lucid dreaming for the first time, indeed also for the experienced dreamer who wishes to refine his or her lucid practice.

Are you ready to awaken the dreamer within?

An Inside Job: 5 Steps to Anxiety Relief

by Bethany Eaton

An Inside Job asks us to look at the anxiety epidemic in the world from a different perspective and invites a new conversation for a powerful solution. Until now, the anxiety cure has been sought in the outside world. Governments and corporations should fix the danger out there in the world and rescue us from insecurity and worry.

Closer to home we’ve looked to other circumstances and people to blame for our feelings of anger, fear, distrust and pain: bosses, spouses, friends and those different from us. We numb ourselves in search of anxiety relief by escaping into wine and carbs or ill-fated attempts to control the things and people around us.

The fight/flight response that meant life or death survival for our ancestors now means anxiety disorders filled with sleepless nights, Prozac, web surfing, painful relationships and trying to have it all while we do it all.

We look outside of ourselves for solutions – other people, medicine, distractions – while in reality, it’s an inside job. An Inside Job demonstrates that it’s lack of love and respect that cause us this deep distress.

Bethany Eaton says anxiety no more and offers 5 steps for learning to love ourselves again. Self-love creates the capacity for empathy, compassion and love to flow out into the world. It then dominoes out to those around us, the policies we make at the family, work, community, government and corporate levels. It heals the anxious suffering in the world. An Inside Job will help you create more peace and joy in your life while calming your anxiety panic.

Edge of Glory (A Pilgrim’s Guide To Christianity)

by Christopher Roberts

Edge of Glory follows on from my books Overcoming Obstacles, and The Journey. It has been written to encourage Christians, and non-Christians alike. This book will give you some insight into what God might want you to do during your Christian Journey. It provides snapshots into what God might be up to, in your life. But the book also reveals some of the tactics concerning what Satan might be up to as well. However, it is not a book about Satan gaining the upper hand in the lives of Christians. Quite the opposite! It is a book that reveals what Satan might be getting up to, in the background of your life. And yet, the book will reveal how God might want you to respond to some of Satan’s tactics. The books will also provide you with wisdom, and some understanding concerning spiritual warfare, and the hope to come, as you persevere in your walk with God. Like my other books, Edge of Glory has been structured into short mini chapters. This is so that you will have time to read the short words of encouragement, just before you go to work in the morning, or before going to sleep at night. This will allow you to dip in and out of the book at your convenience. You won’t need to spend a long time reading it, before getting a word of encouragement. In the alternative, it may be that you want to read the book, from cover to cover, as you would any other book – the options and preferences are yours. But I pray that God will bless you, as he reveals more about himself, through the pages of this book.

Is God Cruel? An In-Depth Analysis of God’s Apparent Acts of Cruelty in the Bible

by Michael Caputo

Is the God of the Bible a cruel God? Atheists and other unbelievers would quickly reply affirmatively and would then proceed to point out examples from the Bible as evidence that God is harsh and sadistic.

First of all, they would point to Noah’s Flood, and would ask, “Is a God that wipes out humanity with a flood, or that destroys cities and tribes because they do not reflect His moral standards not cruel and sadistic?” They would also point to other events relating to his own chosen people Israel and even to individuals He says He loved, such as King David, for instance.

Of course, to the biblically ignorant and to the ones who do not know the context of all of the above events, it might, indeed, seem that God was harsh and cruel; but not to the biblically literate — and definitely not to the ones who have spent years studying and understanding the mind of God.

This work was written to increase the reader’s understanding and appreciation of God’s character, His love for righteousness, His great wisdom and His unending love. Above all, it is meant to strengthen the reader’s faith and trust in the Almighty, so that he/she may turn to Him with total assurance in the fact that He is a Father who is always fair, just, and loving.

To accomplish this aim, this book will analyze many major events that have been used by atheists and others as evidence of God’s alleged cruelty; but it will do so in a way that is both original and unusual. Each analysis will begin with the thought-provoking, hypothetical question, “What if Godâ?¦?” Afterwards every event will be explored in depth as well as the historical context. Lastly, the author will address what might have happened if God had handled each event differently.

For instance, the Bible tells us that God destroyed the pre-flood world and only saved Noah and his family. This seems to be quite a drastic measure, and some skeptics point to it as an example of incomprehensible cruelty on God’s part. But what if God had not destroyed the inhabitants of the Earth and had allowed them, instead, to continue in their degeneracy? Would that have been a wiser decision? Or could it be that God’s verdict was both appropriate and necessary?

Again, God appears to be very harsh when He orders Israel to totally eradicate the inhabitants of Canaan. Scoffers point to this as one more example of sadism on God’s part and insist that it contradicts the “God is Love” idea. But what if God had not ordered the Canaanites’ total destruction and had allowed all of them to live side by side with Israel, though extremely evil? Would God have shown more justice by doing that?

Lastly, what if God would not climax the end of our age with the horrific events described in the book of Revelation? What if He would, instead, orchestrate Christ’s return in a much more peaceful and much less catastrophic way? Would not that be much more appropriate from a loving God, or could it be that even the cataclysmic end of the age is another manifestation of God’s wisdom and greatness?

In this work the reader will clearly see that God’s actions are invariably wise, fair and just. No matter how seemingly cruel or unjustified, every one of his interventions, when looked at closely, reveals great love, patience, wisdom and justice.

Mother Goose Move Over: or you’re gonna love poetry

by Sara Loo

Sara Loo has written a work of poetry that will remain in children’s literature from this time forth and forever more. It is a book that every child will love and come back to again and again. Ms. Loo has a way with words and a big imagination. A child speaks to a starfish and the starfish speaks right back. So too with all the poems; as nature speaks, we hear it in both content and structure. The content is both novel and impacting, the structure overflowing with metaphor and cadence, rhythm and rhyme. Delight is the offspring of this work. No matter what your personality type, you will be enchanted by this book of poetry as will every child who gets his hands on it. The simplicity and directness is disarming.

It has long been established that children benefit immensely when they make the effort to memorize poems. Well, here is the best of the best, a book of such quality that the child will have no difficulty using his memory. After only a few readings these poems will begin to stick in his head. The wonderful thoughts they contain and the cadence and rhythm will allow nothing short of this. Awaken your child to the world of poetry. If he has thus far taken no interest in rhyming, this is about to change. Not only will he begin to memorize these poems, his interest in the world of the poetic will come alive to him.

In years past, it was not uncommon for an individual in his growing up years to take the class called elocution. To the timid I suppose they would prefer the word electrocution. For the art of elocution contains within its structure the act of standing up in front of an audience and making a recitation. Usually the child would take these classes for a certain time period, often for the season of a school year, at the end of which would come the recital. One of the most common performances would be the recitation of a quality poem. It could abound with history, invention, or a never ending assortment of trivia. Often it would collect itself around something novel, even comical, something to keep the audience entertained. As one might suspect, humor could play a big role in these recitations. I mention this fact because a large number of the poems in this book Mother Goose Move Over or you’re gonna love poetry would richly add to any recitation.

Lastly, the way this author engages us in nature, is one more reason to inquire within the pages of this book. It seems the author lives and breathes and has her life steeped in nature. It is almost mystical the way she leads us from one image to another, one delightful encounter to another and another and another.


by Slim Phatty

A woman’s guide to realizing her self worth.

An important part of dating is knowing your self-worth. Not knowing your worth leads to poor dating choices, and dating the wrong type of people. A person that doesn’t know their self-worth puts up with disrespect, abuse, being used, being walked over, and all kinds of things a person shouldn’t put up with. A lot of people these days don’t know their worth. They say they know their worth, but their actions prove that they don’t. Once a person knows their worth they don’t put up with disrespect because they know they deserve to be treated better than that. A person that knows their worth loves themselves too much to let someone walk all over them or treat them wrong. If you need help realizing your self worth this guide was written especially for you.

Christian Revival Diet: Deconstruct to Reconstruct

by D. Duane Engler

The Christian Revival Dietâ?¢ strives to focus on the foundation and reasons to motivate and think through healthy living concepts while striving to live a more Biblically strong Christian lifestyle.

The Christian Revival Dietâ?¢ is a simple way to help you on the path that God wants to lead you on with the goal of transformation in all areas of your life. But why another diet book? There are too many out there you might say. I see a gap in most of these books don’t relate to the Biblical foundation for diet, and with the state of our world today we need more behind the ‘why’ versus the ‘how’.

The world has so many people captive and in slavery to sin, unhealthy living and so many books out there only complicate the issue and end up making things so much worse by treating the symptoms versus looking at the root cause.

Die Christian Revival Diet � ist bestrebt, auf der Grundlage und Gründe zu motivieren und zu denken, durch gesunde Wohnkonzepte, während das Streben um eine biblisch starken christlichen Lebensstil zu leben konzentrieren.

Die Christian Revival Diet â?¢ ist ein einfacher Weg, um Sie auf dem Weg, dass Gott Sie in allen Bereichen Ihres Lebens führen auf mit dem Ziel der Transformation will helfen. Aber warum eine andere Diät Buch? Es gibt zu viele gibt, könnte man sagen. Ich sehe eine Lücke in den meisten dieser Bücher nicht auf die biblische Grundlage für die Ernährung beziehen und mit dem Zustand unserer heutigen Welt brauchen wir mehr hinter dem “Warum” gegenüber dem “wie”.
