  • Game Plan For Loss

    $17.99

    There is always a plan.

    Joe Gibbs has dedicated his life to helping the “average Joe” apply Biblical principles to everyday situations, using the Bible as a game plan. But in 2019, when his son, J.D., lost his battle with a degenerative brain disease at the age of 49, Joe realized that while he did have a game plan for life, he did not have a game plan for dealing with loss.

    Reeling, he set out to find answers to the 5 questions that plagued him throughout J.D.’s illness:

    1. Why didn’t God show up?
    2. Why does God allow suffering?
    3. Why do some people suffer more than others?
    4. Are we living a life of chance?
    5. Do we really reap what we sow?

    Written with the non-Christian in mind, Game Plan for Loss presents Coach Gibbs’ answers to these questions in plain, everyday language, proving once again that the Bible is in fact the ultimate game plan, and even though it may not always feel like it, God is there, He is listening, He does have a plan, and everything does work together for good for those who love and serve Him.

  • Hope For The Hurting

    $14.99

    Life is painful.

    Everyone’s story comes with unique challenges, difficulties, bumps, and bruises that leave you lost and drowning in their wake. It could be a financial disaster, a health issue, a broken relationship, or the loss of a loved one.

    Dr. Tony Evans, bestselling author and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, understands life’s hardships firsthand. In a span of less than two years, he lost his brother, sister, brother-in-law, two nieces, father, and wife. At the same time, both of his daughters received cancer diagnoses. In the wake of all this pain, Dr. Evans had to put into practice, at the deepest levels, the truths he has preached about God for more than forty years.

    God’s Word doesn’t promise us a life free from pain and trouble. It promises us something else-Someone else. Someone who will walk with us through all of life’s trials and troubles.

    There is hope for the hurting: His name is Jesus.

  • Courageously Expecting : 30 Days Of Encouragement For Pregnancy After Loss

    $18.99

    Using Scripture and personal narrative, Courageously Expecting empathizes with and empowers women to face a pregnancy after loss with faith and courage, despite inevitable feelings of grief and fear that accompany life after losing a baby.

    Pregnancy is widely regarded as the most joyful time in a woman’s life, but for the mother who has experienced pregnancy loss, a subsequent pregnancy can feel like she’s holding her breath and hoping for what she can’t control. In Courageously Expecting, Jenny Albers meets women in this difficult season as someone who has also experienced the worst and cautiously hoped for the best. Through the telling of her own story, Scripture, and heartfelt prayer, she encourages readers to cling to faith in the face of fear and guides them to:
    *cultivate hope when doubt weighs heavy;

    *realize that the past does not dictate the present or the future and that God creates a way in the wilderness of grief and loss;

    *flip the script on the what-if, worst-case-scenario narrative in their minds and learn to take their thoughts captive; and

    *find the courage to humble themselves and ask for and accept help from others.

    Regardless of where readers are on their pregnancy after loss journey, Courageously Expecting is a companion to help them through the days when fear overshadows hope.

  • Lemons On Friday

    $19.99

    After being married for less than a year, country music legend Alan Jackson’s daughter Mattie was faced with navigating a future that didn’t include her young husband and their lifelong plans.

    Ben Selecman passed away twelve days after a traumatic brain injury-and three weeks before celebrating his first anniversary with his wife. Twenty-eight-year-old Mattie had to find a way to move forward and reconcile herself with a good God, even when He did not give her the healing miracle she prayed for.

    In Lemons on Friday, readers walk with Mattie Jackson Selecman during the first years of grief following Ben’s tragic death as she grapples with her loss and leans on a steadfast God. Based on Selecman’s journal writings, Lemons on Friday will speak to all readers who must carry on without their loved ones and take a hard look at faith when their lives have not gone as planned.

    Lemons on Friday grapples with questions like these:
    *How did I get here?
    *Will this always hurt?
    *Who am I now?
    *How do I move forward?

    “When fundamental parts of our lives are lost, when people and things we thought we’d never lose are suddenly gone, it’s natural to want answers,” writes Selecman. “Why did this happen? Who’s to blame? What could I have done differently? And for many of us in the aftermath of life-shattering change, we also want to know, where is God? Not just where was He when the tragedy happened, but where is He now in my darkest days of hurt, wondering, and longing for comfort? When I am on the floor, writhing in tears with no idea what the rest of my life will look like, where is God?”

    Lemons on Friday offers insight and peace for anyone grieving, but especially for young people experiencing loss and facing a future that feels full of question marks.

  • Grace Disguised Revised And Expanded

    $25.99

    With vulnerability and honesty, Jerry Sittser walks through his own grief and loss to show that new life is possible–one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple and ordinary gifts. This 25th anniversary edition features a new introduction and two additional chapters, one which provides help for pastors and counselors.

    Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will face some kind of loss in life. But we can, if we choose, know the grace that transforms us.

    Whether your suffering has come in the form of chronic illness, disability, divorce, unemployment, crushing disappointment, or the loss of someone you love, Sittser will help you put your thoughts into words in a way that will guide you deeper into your own healing process.

    This revised edition of A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of our sorrows, asks questions many people are afraid to ask, and provides hope in its answers:
    *Will the pain ever subside?
    *Will my life ever be good again?
    *Will the depression ever lift?
    *Will I ever overcome the bitterness I feel?
    *What is God’s plan in all of this?

    The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life.

  • Unexpecting : Real Talk On Pregnancy Loss

    $16.99

    When your baby dies, you find yourself in a life you never expected. And even though pregnancy and infant loss is common, it’s not common to you. Instead, you feel like a stranger in your own body, surrounded by well-meaning people who often don’t know how to support you.

    – facing social isolation and grief invalidation
    – having faith when you feel let down by God

    – learning to move forward after loss, and
    – creating a legacy for your childIn

  • Hope Beyond An Empty Cradle

    $18.99

    Tens of thousands of women and families every year lose a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. The statistics are sobering–between 10% and 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, 1% in stillbirth, and nearly 23,000 babies die before their first birthday–but statistics alone miss the depth of the hurt. Each loss is personal and devastating.

    No woman is prepared to lose a baby, and caregivers are often unaware of how best to help. In Hope Beyond an Empty Cradle therapist Hallie Scott first shares her own story, as a mother whose only child, Abigail, was stillborn, and then leads readers through a healing process that makes space for heartbreak, despair, guilt, questions, and anger. Life is never the same in the wake of the loss, but a new normal is possible.

    The book will be a welcome resource for families who have lost a child, as well as for those seeking to care for them in their traumatic grief.

  • Either Way Well Be All Right

    $16.99

    Does God have a hope to offer us in times of pain? Can God meet and sustain us even if our circumstances don’t change?

    One of the few guarantees in life is that we will suffer. Everything around us is broken by sin. Each of us has an expiration date. A few years ago, Eric and his wife, Elizabeth, were confronted with this unavoidable reality when she was faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis and he was caring for her and their three children.

    Shattered by grief, they began to wrestle with what it means to follow Jesus when everything around them seemed to be giving way. What this pastor and his wife discovered were a set of truths about God from Scripture that provided the resources they needed to survive-truths too often neglected by the modern world. God meets us in our grief, but not always in ways we expect or even want.Coming from that jumbled place of agony and assurance, Either Way, We’ll Be All Right is a journey through the darkness in hopes of discovering the light on the other side.

  • Flood Of Kindness

    $17.99

    Perfect for all children experiencing loss or grief, A Flood of Kindness gracefully confronts difficult feelings and celebrates the healing power of kindness.

    “The night the river jumped its banks, everything changed.”

    So begins A Flood of Kindness, a poignant picture book that addresses grief and loss and demonstrates how kindness can bring hope. Written in spare prose and told from an intimate first-person point of view, the story follows Charlotte, a young girl who watches floodwaters rise in her home and is forced to evacuate to a shelter with her parents. Kind people she doesn’t know give her food, socks and shoes to keep her feet warm, and a place to sleep. As Charlotte adjusts to the shelter–a strange, crowded place that is not home–she grapples with feelings of anger and sadness. But as the days go by, Charlotte starts to realize how grateful she is for the things that she does have–her parents, a cot to sleep on, food to eat–and starts looking for ways to help others in the shelter.

    All children deal with sadness and loss in some way, whether it stems from a natural disaster, the death of a pet, or moving to a new place. A Flood of Kindness acknowledges those difficult feelings and helps readers process them in a healthy way. Children will be encouraged to be kind to those who need a friend and to help others in whatever way they can, no matter how small.

  • Christians Journey Through Grief

    $16.99

    Don’t Get Over It. Get Through It.
    This book will give you the tools to walk through the process of grief in a healthy way.

    FEATURES AND BENEFITS
    -Helps readers distinguish between normal and unhealthy grieving
    -Provides practical steps to help readers maintain their physical health, emotional health, and relationships while grieving
    -Offers guidance for working through the crisis of faith grief often brings

    The apostle Paul said Christians do not grieve in the same way as those who do not have hope (1 Thess. 4:13). But that doesn’t mean we don’t or shouldn’t grieve. In The Christian’s Journey Through Grief, Dr. Carol Peters-Tanksley explores the difference in the Christian’s grieving process, showing what a healthy grieving process looks like and how to embrace God’s comfort.
    As one who recently experienced the death of her husband, Dr. Carol speaks authoritatively yet compassionately from both a personal perspective and the perspective of a physician and minister. In this book she addresses:
    -What to expect while grieving
    -What is normal and abnormal grief
    -How to deal with the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of grief
    -How grief affects one’s relationship with God
    -Which steps the grieving person can take toward healing
    -How the hope of eternity helps in the journey of grief

    This book will invite grieving readers to embrace the pain of grief without getting stuck in it, and take God with them on the journey so they can experience hope

  • When God Says No

    $14.99

    What do we do when deep grief invades our lives? How do we negotiate the unwelcomed journey we find ourselves on? What do we do with our unspeakable pain? Even more, what do we do when we have asked God to spare the life of our loved one and he does not give the answer we hope for?

    In When God Says No, Brenda Smit-James tells the story of her journey with grief following the untimely death of her mother – a journey where she questioned God and his goodness, questioned whether Jesus was worth following, and questioned the relevance of the Christian life.

    In telling her story, Brenda shows us how grief can be engaged and not merely endured and how we can face the darkness of grief with quiet courage and, in so doing, find a way back into the light again.

  • Louder Song : Listening For Hope In The Midst Of Lament

    $15.99

    Lament helps us hear God’s louder song.

    When you’re in the midst of suffering, you want answers for the unanswerable, resolutions to the unresolvable. You want to tie up pain in a pretty little package and hide it under the bed, taking it out only when you feel strong enough to face it. But grief won’t be contained. Grief disobeys. Grief explodes. In one breath, you may be able to say that God’s got this and all will be well. In the next, you might descend into fatalism. No pretending. Here, you are raw before God, an open wound.

    There is a pathway through this suffering. It’s not easy, but God will use it to lead you toward healing. This path is called lament. Lament leads us between the Already and the Not Yet. Lament minds the gap between current hopelessness and coming hope. Lament anticipates new creation but also acknowledges the painful reality of now. Lament recognizes the existence of evil and suffering-without any sugarcoating-while simultaneously declaring that suffering will not have the final say.

    In the midst of your darkest times, you will discover that lament leads you back to a place of hope-not because lamenting does anything magical, but because God sings a louder song than suffering ever could, a song of renewal and restoration.

  • When Drag Racing Met Country Music

    $13.99

    “Till death do you part.” Words I hung upon and waited for during the first wedding ceremony I attended after my husband died. Instantly our 3-chord unity, that had been tethered together for over 20 years, severed. Was I a free woman? Free to do what? Most certainly a heartbroken woman. After all I did not choose the tearing of hearts and certainly it was not what I had planned on happening at such a young age. No one to check in with upon returning home or to meet for dinner or a movie. Silence.

    Alas, there was One. My Heavenly Father became my best friend and my Husband. Rediscovering my love for writing, along with scripture, the collections inside helped in finding my way back to where my true identity lies. The wife of a Drag Racing Legend was who I had become; identity in Christ is where I am now. Whether you are a widow or searching for more meaning relating to heart issues, welcome. Let us sojourn together.

    Additional Info
    A 2003 Finalist in the United Kingdom Christian Book Awards! “Albert,” the neighbor said, “your mom needs you to come home.” That’s how it began for Albert Hsu when his father died. Anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide experiences tremendous shock and trauma. What follows is a confusing mix of emotions-anger, guilt, grief, and despair. Suicide raises heartrending questions: Why did this happen? Why didn’t we see it coming? Could we have done anything to prevent it? How can we go on? Many also wonder if those who choose suicide are doomed to an eternity separated from God and their loved ones. Some may even start asking whether life is worth living at all. After his father’s death, Hsu wrestled with the intense emotional and theological questions surrounding suicide. While acknowledging that there are no easy answers, he draws on the resources of the Christian faith to point suicide survivors to the God who offers comfort in our grief and hope for the future. For those who have lost a loved one to suicide and for their counselors and pastors, this book is an essential companion for the journey toward healing. This revised edition incorporates the latest statistics, has expanded resources for suicide prevention and mental health ministry, and now includes a discussion guide for suicide survivor groups.
