An upbeat, fun-to-read children’s story about how God creates beauty from our mistakes. We all make mistakes. What’s important is how we respond when we do. In this charming little story about Betty, we get to watch as her best efforts in art class don’t quite measure up to her expectations. But does that mean Betty hangs her head low, never to bounce back again? Absolutely not. In this playful, fun storybook, children will learn they can give their mistakes and imperfections to God, and He will make something beautiful out of them-maybe even something as beautiful and fun as confetti!
An ordinary meal, an extraordinary Man, and a world changed forever. Young Alex keeps hearing about a Man from the house of bread who has miraculous powers, who heals the sick and walks on water. When Alex finally witnesses the miracles and meets the Man, his life is forever changed. Walk with Alex as he watches Jesus multiply loaves and call Himself the life-giving Bread. This recurring symbol fascinates Alex and leaves children ages 4 to 8—and the adults who read with them—thinking differently about not only the bread on their plates but also the Man who makes miracles happen.
Detective Danni Grace has never met a police officer who wants to face a scenario where pulling the trigger on another person is the only option. When the worst does occur and there’s a police-involved shooting, it leads to riots and calls to disband the entire police force in La Rosa, Danni’s hometown. After fifteen years on the force, Danni has had enough. While she’s on a leave of absence, though, a community activist in La Rosa is shot and a fellow officer is blamed for his murder. Danni will need to tap into her code of courage to uncover the truth, prevent another injustice, and uphold her oath to serve and protect.
Life is painful. Everyone’s story comes with unique challenges, difficulties, bumps, and bruises that leave you lost and drowning in their wake. 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. There is hope for the hurting: His name is Jesus.
Eighteen years, she tried to believe she had made the right decision for him. But if she never saw him again, how could she ever be sure? Melissa had clung to the thin thread of hope given by the adoption agency that someday her newborn son might want to connect with her. When his eighteenth birthday arrived, she called the agency to simply update her contact information, not expecting a response. Susan and Jimmy Colton had raised their boy with openness about his adoption. After the heartbreaking loss of two infant sons that marked their early years of marriage, they promised themselves they would try not to hold too tightly to David or hold back any information he wanted about his birth. And so they waited on him. David was hesitant to talk about the questions and curiosities about his birth story that often haunted him. But as he neared adulthood, his need to know the full story of his life became something he couldn’t shake. Until the call came to the Coltons from the adoption agency, and the first tentative bits of communication and connection set in motion a story that would change all their lives forever. From the team that brought you the movies Courageous and War Room comes Lifemark, the novelization of the new film inspired by a true story of adoption, redemption, and hope.
