Rise – Get Up and Live in God’s Great Story – £1.99 0 comments

The world tells us that our early years are to be irresponsibly enjoyed rather than devoted to meaningful pursuits. We’re told that responsibility and commitment are burdens to be put off as long as possible. And so, most of us spend our youth in a sad state of slumber—sleeping in on life until we’re forced to get up. The problem is that life has already begun. It’s happening right now. And God has called you to live it.
In this powerful book, Trip Lee argues it’s time to wake up and RISE, to live the way we were created to live. Young or old, we’ve been called to live for Him. Right now. Young believers face the same problems as older Christians, but they feel them in unique ways. RISE addresses those core problems in an engaging, profound, and life-changing way.
Don’t just sit there: RISE!

The Passionate Journey – 47 Lenten devotions – Only 90p 0 comments

Society tells us we have the power and where-with-all to make it on our own. The Passionate Journey runs counter to these voices of self-sufficiency with a thoughtful collection of 47 Lenten devotions leading up to the most sacred time of the year–Easter. Through guided reflection, Scripture reading, journaling, silence, and prayer, we are drawn into the peace that is generated by solitude, and prompted to reorganize our priorities, slow down, and appreciate the ultimate sacrifice made by Christ on our behalf.
These well-crafted devotional readings are divided into four 10-day sections with a special portion for Holy Week, especially designed to help readers attend to Jesus’s sacrifice, and apply the message of the Passion to their life.

The Light In The Window – Historical account – Just 99p 0 comments

In Ireland, 1951, the young June Goulding took up a position as midwife in a home for unmarried mothers run by the Sacred Heart nuns. What she witnessed there was to haunt her for the next fifty years. It was a place of secrets, lies and cruelty. A place where women picked grass by hand and tarred roads whilst heavily pregnant. Where they were denied any contact with the outside world; denied basic medical treatment and abused for their ‘sins’; where, after the birth, they were forced into hard labour in the convent for three years. But worst of all was that the young women were expected to raise their babies during these three years so that they could then be sold – given up for adoption in exchange for a donation to the nuns.
Shocked by the nuns’ inhumane treatment of the frightened young women, June risked her job to bring some light into their dark lives. June’s memoir tells the story of twelve women’s experiences in this home and of the hardships they endured, but also the kindness she offered them, and the hope she was able to bring.
