  • Path Of Life


    25 Chapters

    Additional Info
    Psalm 119 is noted for its call to delight in the Word of God. But we must not fail to realize that this great psalm is also infused with great lament. In The Path of Life, J. Stephen Yuille follows the psalmist through his many ups and downs in order to see how it gives voice to the song in our soul. Here’s comfort for bearing sorrow, strength for enduring difficulty, trust for facing uncertainty, and peace for overcoming anxiety. Even in his extremity, the psalmist finds joy in the blessed God. This is how Jesus persevered through trials and endured the cross. And in Christ, you too can take up this psalm, follow the path of life, and find blessedness in your seasons of lament.

  • Encouragement : Adrenaline For The Soul


    11 Chapters

    Additional Info
    In a crisis, the body’s burst of adrenaline can boost the average person’s physical abilities, so that a man is able to life a car off a trapped bicyclist and a mother can fight off a polar bear threatening her son. Author Mark Chanski makes the case that encouragement is able to do emotionally and psychologically for the soul what adrenaline does for the body. While Christians are sometimes reluctant to offer encouragement, we must do so in order to love our neighbors as ourselves. Building on the foundation of the gospel as the ultimate encouragement from God, the author – using quotations, historical references, illustrations, and examples – sets forth the Christian’s obligation to offer encouragement and then shows us how we can be encouraging in our families, our churches, and the world in general.

  • Unanswered Prayer Pamphlet


    Where’s My Miracle?
    What to do when God doesn’t heal you

    Nothing can describe the horror of hearing doctors say, You will never walk or use your hands again.

    Or – You have cancer. I’m afraid it’s terminal.

    Like many people, you look to the Lord and pray for healing. You have friends and the pastor pray for you, but nothing happens. You read Scripture and claim the promises. You even have someone anoint you with oil or go to a healing crusade. But God doesn’t give you your miracle.

    You confess every possible sin and search your heart for any unconfessed sin. Your faith is strong and you tell everyone you will be healed, yet nothing seems to happen.

    You feel that God is playing a cruel joke or start to blame yourself for a lack of faith.

    And that’s a shame when Christians feel that way…

    The truth is that God certainly can heal and sometimes does heal people in a miraculous way. But the Bible does not teach that he will always heal those who come to him in faith.

    The big question is:
    What does the Bible REALLY teach about healing?

    The key is to understand God’s ultimate goal for your life. You need to-
    *Find joy in knowing God’s priorities for your life.
    *Know the comfort of the biblical promises.
    *Enthusiastically embrace God’s will for your life.

    You can find the joy of serving God despite unanswered prayer in this 14-page pamphlet. In just 30 minutes or less, you will unlock the door to a new attitude toward life.
    The topic of unanswered prayer is an issue that author, Joni Eareckson Tada, can speak to personally: A diving accident in 1967, when she was 17, left her a quadriplegic. She has lived 45 years in a wheelchair and she has experienced her share of ups and downs. But, she says, oh, the difference the grace of God has made in my life.

    Let Joni tell you her secrets to peace and joy, despite her wheelchair. She has spent decades studying the Word of God. She knows that God does not enjoy seeing your pain and frustration. He has compassion for you and gives you many ways to deal with life so that you can have peace.

    She has taken her most important insights on turning unanswered prayer into a life of joy (not anxiety) and has encapsulated them into this 14-page pamphlet. Whether you or a loved one is suffering. This pamphlet will bring you some help to break free from the strangle hold of fear and worry when God doesn’t seem to answer.

    In this pamphlet, you will find hope. Joni tells her sto
