New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge provides a practical, deceptively simple blueprint for utterly retaking control of your life.
We live in soul-scorching times. The 24-7 onslaught of contemporary life--with its never-ending feed of global tragedies and shrieking demands for our attention, to say nothing of the ordinary pressures of work, family, friends, and community--has left us ragged, wrung-out, and emptied. But if we already have no margin in our lives, how do we find room to change things?
In his life-changing new book, John Eldredge distills a lifetime's wisdom about healing into a series of practical, ready-to-implement practices for putting yourself back together. These simple steps will enable you to begin recovery, help you focus on what matters most, disengage from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty. The practices include
- the one-minute pause,
- benevolent detachment,
- practicing kindness,
- getting outside, and
- stepping back from technology.
The practices explained here are ready for the taking. You don't need abandon your life to get it back. You can restore it here and now. And you will never be the same.
Our World is Awash in White Noise
White noise is a sound-masking tool designed to cover up the things that "distract" us. And while white-noise can occasionally be helpful, there are times when the white noise in our lives drowns out the voices we need to hear. That's what happens to many leaders. We learn to tune-out distractions, but end up growing deaf to the inner desires and issues that we need to listen to. There are common white noises in leadership and ministry that we use to mask our unpleasant emotions and ignore the desires deep inside of us. Our increasingly busy lives, the numbing nature of entertainment and social media, and the urgency of ministry itself all work together to create a toxic cocktail of emotional distraction. Multiplying the problem is our emotional incompetence. Leaders are more anxious, stressed, and depressed than ever before.
Emotional healing begins with emotional awareness. Being able to identify and understand our emotions requires some counter-cultural practices. Spiritual disciplines of fasting, meditation, Sabbath keeping, prayer, and hospitality are practices intended to create space for emotional evaluation and exploration.
This book is a guide to help you listen to yourself, to recognize what your emotions, your body, and your spirit are saying to you by turning down the kudzu of white noise threatening to control your life.
Translated into over 50 languages, The Purpose Driven Life is far more than just a book; it is a guide to a spiritual journey that has transformed millions of lives. Once you take this journey, you'll never be the same again.

*NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER* What feels shaky in your world? Are you overwhelmed by the problems you're facing or the pain you're feeling? Maybe you feel hurt by the past. Disappointed by the present. Worried about the future. If so, you are not alone, but there is hope. You can live with security and purpose.
In Unshakable Hope, Max Lucado unpacks 12 of the Bible's most significant promises, equipping you to overcome difficult circumstances by keeping your focus on the hope found in the promises of Scripture rather than dwelling on the problems in front of you.For every problem in life, God has given you a promise.
Hope is hard to come by these days. Whether it's heart disease or cancer, job failure or addiction, natural disasters or family disasters, mass murders or mental illness, there are so many reasons to be overwhelmed.
In a world full of instability, we do not need more opinions or hunches; we need the definitive declarations of our mighty and loving God.
What is your life built on--the circumstances of life or the promises of God? The answer to that question changes everything. Join Max as he takes a closer look at Scripture's unbreakable promises and shows you how to live with unshakable hope.
Sadie Robertson, bestselling author and star of Dancing with the Stars, has an important message for her generation: you don't have to be held back by fear, anxiety, or loneliness anymore. In Live Fearless, Sadie takes you on a thrilling personal journey toward power, passion, and purpose as you live at the center of who God created you to be
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty tired of the struggle. You know which one I mean--fear, loneliness, not knowing who I am or what I'm meant to do. . . . Sound familiar?
I struggled with insecurity, comparison, and isolation for too many years, from thigh gaps to eyebrows to the lifestyles I felt I had to live up to. I was so afraid of being "found out," that everyone in my life would somehow figure out that I was fearful and small and that I struggled to make my faith a reality and to be secure in who I am. It took a major perspective shift from staring at comments on a screen to really digging into the pages of my Bible to see what God actually says about overcoming fear.
Setting aside the fear, anxiety, and comparison to become the joy-filled person God created you to be is exactly what God is inviting you into. To really be seen and known. To be an agent of change by choosing compassion, connection, and acceptance for everyone you come in contact with. Inside this book are ways to find your power, passion, and purpose--and reach for your dreams. Plus, there are places to jot down notes, fun lists, practical ways to make changes, and thoughts on how living fearless can change everything.
Are you tired of the awful comparison game? Are you exhausted from trying to keep up, from feeling small and afraid that people will find the real you and be disappointed? There is so much more for you. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what your fears are, freedom is available to you. It's just a matter of saying yes. You in?
Hope you'll join me on this wild adventure as we learn to Live Fearless together.Love, Sadie

In a fast-paced, perpetually distracted society, we often feel alone, outmatched by trouble, and overwhelmed by life. Bestselling author and pastor Robert J. Morgan recognizes that the very core of personal spirituality is knowing Him in whose presence we travel and in whose light we continually dwell. Learning to train our souls to awaken to the simple pleasure of being present with our Savior relieves what all-to-often overwhelms us. In Always Near, Morgan provides 10 ways we can cultivate the blessings of God's presence, including:
- Discovering special places
- Focusing on things unseen
- Abiding in Scripture
