A Joyful Noise

by Terri Main

A Joyful Noise

Many people, including many who devoutly follow the paths of righteousness, seem to view serving God as some sort of tiresome enterprise. Necessary? Yes. Important? Yes. But, Joyful? Far from it. This attitude, though, is far from Biblical. Psalm 100 opens with “Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord.” It continues to say we should “Serve the Lord with Gladness.” That’s hardly the severe image many in the church project to the world.

A Joyful Noise takes Psalm 100 phrase by phrase to discover the joy in true religious practice. In this study we discover a joyful experience of the divine. Topics include:

Make a Joyful Noise
Serve the Lord with Gladness
Singing unto the Lord
We are the Lord’s People
Thanksgiving
Praise
Adoration
The Lord is Good
Everlasting Mercy
Eternally Faithful

This study will help you restore the joy to your worship. This is a part of the Wordmaster 99 Cent Bible Study Library. This Bible study guide is good for both individual study and small group Bible studies. Each lesson includes a short commentary followed by a list of study questions to lead you to an even deeper understanding of the concepts in the lesson.

Finally Mr Write

Finally Mr. Write

Eighteen months. That’s how long 30-year-old Josh Wilson has to get married. He’s been widowed less than a week, but Bo Jamison, Josh’s late father-in-law, tied his inheritance to his marital status. Josh would be fine without Bo’s money, but failing to meet the stipulations means Bo’s wife and Josh’s daughter get nothing. And Josh can’t live with that.

Stephanie Jamison is only twenty, but her blog on purity is extremely popular. She’d planned to move in with her best friend in Serenity Landing, but the friend eloped, leaving Stephanie with no place to go. The nanny job offered by her great-uncle right before his death seemed to be the perfect solution.

Until she found out she’d be living two rooms down from the boy she used to have a crush on.

Josh barely remembers the girl who fell off the stage at drama camp. Though he’s fairly sure Bo was trying to set him up with Stephanie, he has no choice but to accept her help. Despite his late father-in-law’s interference, it’s too soon to move on – and Stephanie is much too young. Or he’s much too old. Or both. Besides, he has the Serenity Landing Comedy Club to save.

When circumstances spiral out of control, they have two choices – get married or lose everything. On the line are Stephanie’s blogging job she loves and the inheritance Josh needs for his mother-in-law. It’s the only way he can keep the club going and his employees paid. They grow closer, but will they ever believe he’s Finally Mr. Write?

Imperfect

by Christy Barritt

Imperfect

(Formerly titled “The Trouble with Perfect”)

Since the death of her fiancé two years ago, novelist Morgan Blake’s life has been in a holding pattern. She has a major case of writer’s block, and a book signing in the small mountain town of Perfect sounds like just the solution to help her clear her head.

Her trip takes a wrong turn when, on her way there, she’s involved in a hit and run—she’s hit a man, and he’s run from the scene. Before fleeing, he mouthed the word “help.” She plans to give him that help, but first she must find him.

In Perfect, she finds a town that offers everything she’s ever wanted. But is something sinister going on behind the town’s cheery exterior? Was she invited as a guest of honor simply to do a book signing? Or was she lured to town for another purpose—a deadly purpose?

Together Again

by Cheryl Rogers

Together Again

A book about our late president born Feb. 12, 1809 … and a teen who bears his name.

Seventeen-old-old Abe was like a fly on the wall as former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was talking to God. No one seemed to see or hear him, but he sure heard them. Lincoln was emphatic. He didn’t want to take all the credit for ending slavery and saving the union. ” ‘It’s not like I singlehandedly put the nation back together again. I wasn’t even there anymore! I died!’ ” he exclaims.

The soon-to-be college history major, who saw the dialogue in a dream, believes he’s being called by God to write Lincoln’s story in an ebook for his generation.

As the story unfolds, Lincoln learns he has more in common with Lincoln than their first names. They both, at one point, had a girlfriend named Ann. Lincoln lost his girl to typhoid; the modern Abe ditched his…

In this story the modern Abe learns to cherish love whenever you find it, and no one should be a wedge between man and God.

The short ebook is aimed at Christian young adult romance and historical fiction lovers, especially those with an affection for Honest Abe.
