Christian Athlete : Glorifying God In Sports
The Christian Athlete is a gospel-centered guide that assists athletes who identify as Christians and are seeking to understand how to practically apply their faith to their sport.
Athletes desire–and deserve–a more substantive expression of the Christian faith in the context of sport, but they don’t know what it looks like or where to turn to learn more.
Author Brian Smith shares his story as an athlete and coach, and his experience working with high-level athletes in the last decade to help readers better understand how to integrate faith and sport by:
*Assisting those who want a wide-angled understanding of how to live the Christian faith in the context of sports
*Walking through the many questions Christian athletes ask about winning, losing, injuries, practice, and everything in between
*Moving Christian athletes from simply having cliched spiritual sayings decorating their bodies or t-shirts to actually living out their faith through all the opportunities their sport offers them
The Christian Athlete will show readers how to live out a biblical perspective on athletics and urge them to engage in the gifts they are given to glorify God whether they are the team MVP or riding the bench.

God has a dream for your life–and in this concise yet powerful volume, beloved pastor and trusted teacher Rick Warren explains the process God uses to fulfill the dream he gives you.
The Bible is full of stories of people whose God-given dreams became reality–but not without first going through the six phases of faith. In Created to Dream, Pastor Rick will help you understand how God uses these phases to grow people to spiritual maturity while fulfilling the dreams he gives them. Each phase is a test of your faith.
The process God uses to grow your faith:
*Phase 1: Dream–God puts an exciting dream in your heart.
*Phase 2: Decision–You make the decision to go after the dream.
*Phase 3: Delays–God allows delays to get you ready for the dream.
*Phase 4: Difficulties–You face problems that grow your character.
*Phase 5: Dead Ends–Your situation becomes impossible.
*Phase 6: Deliverance–God miraculously fulfills the dream!
Knowing these biblical six phases of faith will allow you to stop wondering, “Why is this happening to me?” and begin cooperating with God’s process of growing you and your faith. You’ll find yourself thinking, “So that’s why that happened!” and you’ll be prepared for all that God has dreamed up for your future.
This one book can lead to big changes in your life. Read it, then share it with a friend.

Breaking New Ground$16.99Add to cart
Korey Bontrager and Savannah Zook are just pretending to date–but could their feelings turn into something more?
Korey Bontrager knows he’s been an immature dummkopp. When his widowed dad remarried, Korey was unwelcoming to his kindhearted stepmother. Then he became estranged from his older brother. But after fourteen months in Ohio, God called Korey back to Pennsylvania.
Easier said than done. Back home, Korey feels left behind by his family and friends, who want to see him also happily married. Instead of looking for a new relationship, he finds himself spending time with Savannah Zook: the most outspoken maedel he’s ever met. She’s also confident and brave, having raised her younger brother from a young age. And she’s a natural beauty. But, hard as her friends try to convince her otherwise, she has no interest in dating. Her priority is looking out for her bullied brother.
So when Savannah suggests they pretend to date as a way to get her friends–and his family–off their backs, Korey readily agrees. Soon, he can’t imagine life without her. But could Savannah ever truly be part of his future? And after feeling betrayed by his brother and his last girlfriend, Korey isn’t quite ready to trust another woman with his heart.
Set in the faithful Amish community of Lancaster County, Breaking New Ground gives the most stubborn Bontrager a chance to redeem his story.
