American Immigrant : A Novel
A Colombian American journalist tries to save her career by taking an assignment somewhere she never thought she’d go–Colombia–in this heartwarming debut novel about rediscovering our family stories.
Twenty-five-year-old Melanie Carvajal, a hardworking but struggling journalist for a Miami newspaper, loves her Colombian mother but regularly ignores her phone calls, frustrated that she never quite takes the time to understand Melanie’s life. When the opportunity arises for a big assignment that might save her flagging career, Melanie follows the story to the land of her mother’s birth. She soon realizes Colombia has the potential to connect her, after all these years, to something she’s long ignored: her heritage, the love of her mother, her family, and the richest parts of herself.
Colombia offers more than a chance to make a name for herself as a writer. It is a place of untold stories.
Inspired by real-life events, An American Immigrant is a story of culture and community, of abiding commitment to family, and of embracing our culture and the generations that have come before.

Building A Resilient Life$27.99Add to cart
Even if you’re walking through a difficult season or feeling overwhelmed with the chaos of life, you can build a peace-filled resilience that equips you with strength for today–and for every day ahead.
Life is hard for all kinds of reasons. It’s tempting to try to move past the pain as quickly as possible. Instead, what if we embraced our struggles to develop the strength of resilience not dependent on circumstances?
Writing as a friend who has also walked through difficult times, Rebekah Lyons–the bestselling author of Rhythms of Renewal and the popular host of the Rhythms for Life podcast–reminds us of adversity that always comes with a choice: will discouragement, stress, and fear cause you to crumble, or will you embrace the strength you’ve already been given?
In Building a Resilient Life, Rebekah offers five practical, life-changing rules that help you live into God’s unshakable peace in a world that seems more uncertain every day. Through Rebekah’s unique blend of story, psychology, theology, and biblical teaching, you will:
*Discover five rules of resilience to thrive in difficult times
*Experience adversity as a friend rather than an enemy
*Reset triggers of overwhelm with a fortified faith
*Cultivate strong community to rally in stressful seasons
*Overcome temporary setbacks without giving up
As you use these rules to build your own resilient life, you’ll encounter the God who offers you a peace beyond understanding, a hope beyond today, and a strength and joy you never even knew you had.
Mothers And Daughters Of The Bible Speak$26.99Add to cart
God always keeps His promises, but not always in the way we expect….
“Have faith” is a phrase we hear all the time. But what does it actually look like to live it out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream examines the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down. She tells the story of Jochebed, a mother who took enormous risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharaoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God’s actual design for her son involved flight into exile and danger? And yet this was all part of the master plan to deliver Israel from slavery. Another biblical mother, Rebekah, made terrible choices in an attempt to ensure her son’s place in history. And a daughter, Michal, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in herself.
Through these stories, Shannon explains the intimate connection between faith and family–and how God’s unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters in the Bible were paragons of virtue. Like us, they were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heard God’s voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can see how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He’s still doing the same work in our lives today.
The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak shows that faith is more often a twisting road than a straight line. Yet, as the stories of biblical families attest, at the end of these journeys lies greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.
