  • Shaped By Suffering

    $18.00

    Suffering comes to us all. But Christians today are often not prepared to suffer well and have a short-sighted view of pain and trials. In this book Ken Boa shows how God uses suffering to shape his children for eternity and to grow them in Christlike character. The nature of our affliction is not as important as our response to it, and God is at work through our hardships and wants to use them to prepare us for eternal life.

  • 55 Days : Memoirs Of Life In God’s Hands

    $15.99

    It has been said there are no coincidences in life. The Bible tells us God’s timing is always perfect, even when we can’t recognize it. The death of the author’s wife revealed this clearly to him. This is the true story of how a young soldier, attracted to a young woman because of the car she drove, quickly fell in love with her beautiful soul and how it led to an incredible forty-seven-year journey together filled with love, hardships, travel and a never ending spiritual growth. Tom Glenn’s wife died just fifty-five days after her first ER visit. As he wrote their story, Tom came to realize that he had spontaneously proposed to her, without benefit of a ring or prior planning, by taking a giant leap on July 20, 1969, just fifty-five days after their first date. As they watched the lunar landing and listened to Neil Armstrong’s words, Tom found himself saying, Speaking of giant leaps would you marry me? She accepted and their journey together began. Biblical numerologists believe five means hand and fifty-five means God’s hands. This is the story of two lives lived in God’s hands which led to ongoing spiritual growth.

  • Restored And Forgiven

    $11.99

    When Ray and Vi Donovan were awoken in the early hours of the morning to the horrific news that their two sons had been attacked by a gang while returning home that night, they felt as though their world had ended.

    The couple discovered that one of their sons, Christopher, was fighting for his life. He later died from the injuries he sustained in the brutal attack. The Donovans would have been forgiven for holding onto the anger they felt at the perpetrators forever.

    Ray and Vi found it in their hearts to forgive the men who killed their son.

    They not only let go of their anger – but in an extraordinary show of compassion, they have managed to forgive the thugs that beat their son to death. The couple say they could not have done it without their faith and the help of the restorative justice scheme, which allowed the couple the opportunity to come face to face with the men who killed Christopher.

    This touching and often heart wrenching testimony shows how through their faith in God and the restorative justice system, they have been able to forgive the people who murdered their son.
    They have gone on to help many families, victims and also offenders.

    Their powerful story will challenge anyone who is struggling to forgive and to discover the peace that comes with being able to do so.

In Still a Mother, chaplains Joy Freeman and Tabatha Johnson share their own experiences and collect the stories of others who have sustained such loss, ending the silence and helping to equip pastors, congregations, family, and friends in ministering more compassionately to mothers who grieve.
