You are what you love. But you might not love what you think. In this book, award-winning author James K. A. Smith shows that who and what we worship fundamentally shape our hearts. And while we desire to shape culture, we are not often aware of how culture shapes us. We might not realize the ways our hearts are being taught to love rival gods instead of the One for whom we were made. Smith helps readers recognize the formative power of culture and the transformative possibilities of Christian practices. He explains that worship is the "imagination station" that incubates our loves and longings so that our cultural endeavors are indexed toward God and his kingdom. This is why the church and worshiping in a local community of believers should be the hub and heart of Christian formation and discipleship. Following the publication of his influential work Desiring the Kingdom, Smith received numerous requests from pastors and leaders for a more accessible version of that book's content. No mere abridgment, this new book draws on years of Smith's popular presentations on the ideas in Desiring the Kingdom to offer a fresh, bottom-up rearticulation. The author creatively uses film, literature, and music illustrations to engage readers and includes new material on marriage, family, youth ministry, and faith and work. He also suggests individual and communal practices for shaping the Christian life.

Most every woman has found herself with a closet full of too many clothes or surrounded by brand-new items that somehow never get worn. Instead she gets stuck wearing the same few familiar pieces from a wardrobe that just doesn't feel "right." Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner argues that all those things are actually manifestations of deeper life issues.What if you could understand your appearance as a representation of your inner unresolved conflicts and then assemble a wardrobe to match the way you wish to be perceived? In this fashion guide that is like no other, Dr. Baumgartner helps readers identify the psychology behind their choices, so they can not only develop a personal style that suits their identity but also make positive changes in all areas of life.

Culturally we lack the training of an early age to be free thinkers. We have become instead, repeaters - cookie cutter persons. Thinking out of the box is so needed. This is what prompted me to write this book. Ive been there, done that so know it well. Children today say they are free thinkers, yet there they stand before us, all wanting and dressing alike. It may help the economy but it certainly is not free thinking. It likely is different than what Mom and Dad ascribe but its still about others thinking. How did we get to where we are? We are all responsible for it. So lets together not recreate the past and go forward with creativity and process out of the box ideas and thinking. Develop questioning what was and liberate ourselves.

This is a practical book that guides the reader step by step from difficult times through a turning point to a new beginning. Each chapter includes a section entitled Spiritual Gym, which features imagery exercises relevant to that chapter. Dr Glouberman's website will host MP3 downloads to help guide the reader through the exercises. The content is based on a 3-step approach to new beginnings: 1. The catalyst: the life event or inner search that gets the person moving. 2. The turning point: an expansion in perspective on oneself and life. This includes an acceptance of present feelings and situations, a connection with deeper and more stable levels of oneself, and a vision of the possible futures. 3. The new beginning: accepting the vision without expecting to be 'happy ever after'. The various stages of the process are illustrated through quotes and accounts from interviews with friends and colleagues, as well as prominent figures. Interviewees include Chad Varah, founder of the Samaritans, Gabrielle Roth, Five Rhythms creator, actor Michael York and poet and men's movement founder Robert Bly. The book combines a chatty, approachable and humorous style with original insights of subtlety and depth, as well as state-of-the-art utilisation of imagery throughout.

Things have changed. Have you seen it? The way that we’ve done things for centuries has been unsettled and unseated. We’re living in a new normal. And while on the surface many of these changes look like the next best thing, there’s actually a complex and fragile web of lies holding it all together: You are what you do You are what you experience You are who you know You are what you know You are what you own You are who you raise You are your past In You Are What You Do, author and pastor Daniel Im considers these seven lies and the context that causes them to flourish. Through personable stories, research, and pastoral insight, Daniel will show you how to recognize these everyday lies in your life, so that you can discover the truth on the other side. The truth that leads to freedom. The truth that moves you from surviving to thriving. The truth that will unlock a life of purpose, adventure, meaning, and destiny.

The hidden patterns behind the way we make decisions Several recent books, from Blink to Freakonomics to Predictably Irrational, have examined how people make choices. But none explain why different people have such different styles of decision making—and why those styles seem consistent across many contexts. For instance, why is a gambler always a gambler, whether at work, on the highway, or in a voting booth? Scott de Marchi and James T. Hamilton present a new theory about how we decide, based on an extensive survey of more than thirty thousand subjects. They show that each of us possesses six core traits that shape every decision, from what to have for lunch to where to invest. We go with “the usual” way of deciding whenever there’s a trade-off between current and future happiness, when facing the risk of a bad outcome, or when a choice might hurt other people. We’re also consistent about how much information we want and how much we care about the opinions of others. Readers can determine their own decision-making profile with a test in the book. Once they understand the six core traits, they’ll have a big advantage in their marketing campaigns, management strategies, investments, and many other contexts.

Seven salient points I want you to know and write in the marble of your heart: Nothing just happens. Anything good or bad happening to you is for a purpose; you were born in riches or a rag for a purpose. If you can identify with that purpose, you will surely make your dreams a reality. It is not what the enemy is doing to you that is killing you; not the society you are in; not the promises some politicians, relatives and associates fail to keep; not the family and community you came from; it is what you have failed to do with yourself that is killing you. Life failure is not the absence of opportunities but the absence of vision. You will create whatever opportunities you want in life when you have a vision; that is why you shouldn’t fight your way to be in the presence of great men; rather identify your gift, and when you do, it will make a way for you and bring you before great men. If God can trust you, He will increase your capacity to receive more from him. And one of the reasons you are in the struggle and things don’t seem to be working to your favor is because you have not earned God’s trust. A man with a vision struggles less than a man without a vision to pursue; goals to attain and targets to achieve. Conceive your vision today and pursue it diligently, because if you don’t, other people will hire you to pursue theirs. God never created anybody useless; if He knows you are useless, why would He spend his resources to create you? Your limitation is not entirely your situation, but your understanding of who you are. Biology is studied based on its definition; same applies to life. Your life is what you define it to be. It would have been better if you were aborted at conception than to live through life not achieving your purpose. Whom should I cry for, the fellow who died untimely or the fellow that is alive and without a purpose?

An Invitation to Delight With God in the Tabernacle

Spiritual and emotional engagement with God can seem elusive. Though we desire sacred encounters and a deep relationship with our Creator, achieving such intimacy may feel out of our grasp. Through the metaphor of the Tabernacle, author Lis Stubbs offers a place of rest and a path to closeness with our heavenly Father. Just as the Tabernacle provided a way for the children of Israel to remember God’s faithfulness in the past, application of the Tabernacle today offers Christians a meaningful devotional place of safety, intimacy, and recharge. More than a study, An Invitation to Delight is a practical guide to experiencing God and to becoming more intimate with Jesus. You will discover you are no longer content with surface living and routine check-ins with God. As your time of spiritual solitude becomes more meaningful, you’ll find yourself living intentionally and counterculturally, reaching up to him in faith and stretching out your hands in love.

"How do You love ME" is not just a question; it's a journey that you take with the author... but pack light. You'll need to leave space to collect jewels. When we operate under the spirit of rejection, we take people on a trip... forcing them to prove their love for us or admit that they don't.The purpose of this book is to lead the reader to freedom; freedom from rejection and every accessory that comes along with the spirit of rejection. In order for something to grow, it has to be watered, nurtured and fed. The spirit of rejection is the same; in order for the spirit of rejection to grow, it has to be watered, nurture, fed and an environment has to be created for it to grow. Through her own life story, the author takes you on a trip, revealing ways we nurture and harbor rejection. Rejection is a seed that's planted within us and grows slowly. This book is a journey to freedom.
