In a Boat in the Middle of a Lake: Trusting the God Who Meets Us in Our Storm Audiobook

In a Boat in the Middle of a Lake: Trusting the God Who Meets Us in Our Storm

Author: Patrick Schwenk, Ruth Schwenk Narrator: Crestina Hardie, Van Tracy Release Date: September 2020

Your Storm Doesn't Have to Sink You At some point in our lives, we all find ourselves in a boat in the middle of a lake. We might be there due to a job loss or the death of a loved one. Maybe disability, divorce, or financial insecurity has stranded us. Patrick and Ruth Schwenk found themselves feeling battered after five miscarriages and then surrounded by the waves with Patrick's cancer diagnosis at age forty-three. They were alone. Drifting. And that's when their transformation began. In this compassionate and powerful book, the Schwenks weave together lessons from their own experience with insightful Bible teaching to remind us that one of the greatest ways God transforms us is through trials. As they unpack why Jesus called the disciples into the middle of a lake when dry ground was so safe and comfortable, they help us - understand why the depth of our hurt enables us to experience deep hope; - learn to conquer fear to experience the freedom God has for us; and - discover how God uses chaos, and not just the classroom, to shape and work through us. Today-in your confusion about God's intentions, your disappointment over lost dreams, your disillusionment about prayer-God is offering hope. Because Jesus is still Lord over the water. And while he is not moved by the waves, he is moved by you. And this flood might just be a path to abundance. Reflection questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download. "A powerful reminder that our current reality is not our final reality, and God is Lord over all chaos and suffering!" -Candace Cameron Bure, actress and New York Times bestselling author

Hoodwinked:  Ten Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need To Knock It Off Audiobook

Hoodwinked: Ten Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need To Knock It Off

Author: Karen Ehman, Ruth Schwenk Narrator: Crestina Hardie, Julie Carr, Julie Lyles Carr Release Date: November 2015

Moms have been hoodwinked-tricked into believing lies that keep them from not only enjoying motherhood, but forging friendships with other moms who might tackle the tasks of motherhood differently. Myths such as "Mothering is natural, easy, and instinctive" cause moms to feel like failures if they have questions or apprehensions in raising their kids. Operating from the premise that "The way I mother is the right (and only) way" puts up fences between moms instead of building bridges of encouragement between them. Lies such as "I am my child's choices" tempt moms to mistakenly believe that if their child makes a wrong choice then they, in turn, must be a bad mom. In their encouraging "we've been there" style, Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk enable mothers to: -Identify the ten myths of motherhood our current culture perpetuates -Replace the lies with the truth of what God says in the Bible about mothering -Acquire practical tools to help them form new and improved thought patterns and healthy behaviors -Forge healthy, supportive relationships with other moms of all ages and stages -Confidently embrace the calling of motherhood as they care for their families in their own unique way A six-session video Bible study for group or individual use is also available.

Author: Crestina Hardie, Katie Ganshert Narrator: Crestina Hardie Release Date: September 2015

They've helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection. Meeting Nate was truly an accident--but Amelia finds that he's one of the few people she can count on. Amelia Woods is a small-town wallflower and the proud owner of Forget-Me-Nots, a quaint flower shop that once belonged to her mother. Despite her success in business, her love life has always been a bit lackluster. Until she spies on her ex-boyfriend's wedding and ends up in horrifyingly embarrassing fender-bender with handsome wedding guest, Nate Gallagher. Meanwhile, Amelia's younger brother, William, has proposed to his girlfriend. Amelia would be excited except she has evidence that the fiancée is not who she says she is. How can she be supportive and yet be the protective big sister too? It seems Nate is the only one available for any advice-giving, and he's good at it--and pretty fun to talk to, too. Amelia and Nate strike up an online relationship, but always lingering in Amelia's mind is the fear that he'll realize she's not nearly as appealing in real life. As Amelia works to craft the perfect flower arrangements for other people, she begins to wonder if real love is better than the dream. And if it is, will Nate still be interested when he learns who she is?
