Unwrapping The Names Of Jesus
Help for focusing on Christ during Christmas
Most Christians agree that Christmas is all about Jesus, but most of us spend little time preparing our hearts to celebrate Him. Why is this? Quite simply, because no one taught us how.
In Unwrapping the Names of Jesus, Asheritah Ciuciu leads readers through the four weeks of Advent (Hope, Preparation, Joy, and Love) by focusing each day’s reflection on one name of Jesus. Each week begins with an interactive family devotional followed by five daily reflections, as well as suggestions for fun-filled family activities or service projects to enhance a family’s Advent experience.
Whether you use this devotional in your own personal worship time or as a tool to engage in family worship during the busy holiday season, you will gain a greater sense of awe and wonder at who Jesus is.
By focusing on the person and character of Jesus throughout the Advent season, your heart will be prepared to rejoice. When you admire a live nativity, sit in a candlelight service, or wake up on Christian morning, you can join the faithful who have gone before us and sing from the bottom of your heart, “O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!”

When Your Way Isnt Working$27.99Add to cart
When you are worn-out, when you feel discouraged, when you think you don’t have what it takes, what is the one thing that Jesus wants you to never forget? When Your Way Isn’t Working equips you to discover authentic connection to God and others so you are free to live the life you long for.
In some of his final words to his closest friends, Jesus didn’t suggest a five-year plan for success or a checklist of things to do. Instead, he offered a metaphor about what the good life really looks like: I am the vine. You are the branches. Abide in me. In other words, No matter what happens next, the most important thing is to stay connected to me.
In When Your Way Isn’t Working, pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman offers a unique exploration of John 15 for all of us who are going through the motions and feel frustrated. Idleman reminds us that it’s connection, not production, that leads to a fruitful life–relationships, not circumstances, that bring joy. He offers his distinctive, biblical perspective on how to:
*Find greater rest, depth, and connection in your life
*Embrace freedom from the pressures of performance and production
*Recognize what you can’t do makes room for what God can do
*Step out of isolation even when it feels scary
*Discover the top distractions that keep you from connecting to God–and how to counter them
In the end, the fruit of your life won’t have to do with what you accomplished but with whom you stayed connected. Because no matter what happens next in this uncertain world, what matters most, lasts the longest, and brings the greatest joy is staying connected to the God who never leaves you.

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.
