Rejected – Four Week Mini Bible Study
by Heather Bixler
In this four week mini Bible Study you will discover the power of acceptance in your life. The acceptance we all have from God, and why it’s important to accept our self, flaws and all.
Rejection is a powerful force in our life and our Christian walk. It effects our confidence in God and His call on our life. But little do we know the power we have to let go of the control it has on us.
Rejection is also an attitude that results in an action that looks a lot like putting space between you and someone who has hurt you.
I pray this book will bless you in a way where you will release idols and embrace acceptance in your life rather than the lie of rejection.
A Boom in the Room
by Annie Douglass Lima
crunchy cars to annoying alarm clocks, these poems are filled with imagination and fun. Experience the excitement of world travel, from the sounds and smells of a Korean winter to an outdoor scene in Soltau, Germany, pausing along the way to explore the wilderness of Africa and take in a Texan rodeo. Ready for a break? Sit down and watch a soccer game, listen to the forest orchestra, or dig up some worms and go fishing. When you get hungry, stop by the noodle shop across the street and then catch one of those falling pies for dessert. Just remember to watch out for playful dragons, sharp sharks, and thieving monkeys!
Created by fifth grade students, A Boom in the Room features poetry in a variety of styles, from free verse to tanka and haiku. Proceeds from the sale of this anthology will benefit Watoto Childcare Ministries, a nonprofit organization that provides food, medical care, and education to needy children and their families in East Africa.
