This Time with Love

by Kimberly Rae Jordan

This Time with Love

Six years ago, a new found faith changed Anastacia Stapleton’s perspective on her life and relationship. When the man she is living with refuses to consider marriage, she knows she has to end things with him. Realizing that she can’t continue to live the way she has in the past, Ana runs away from LA and its temptations to the one place her boyfriend had said he’d never go. Minneapolis, Minnesota. As Ana Stapleton becomes Staci Moore, she feels secure in the life she has created for herself and the child she hadn’t realized she carried when she left LA.

Eric McKinley had abandoned the faith of his childhood when he was still in his teens, but after enduring a life-changing trauma, he finds himself once again turning to God. This change of heart prompts him to return to the family he’d become estranged from years ago. Though he thought he had put Ana Stapleton and his feelings for her firmly in his past, Eric realizes nothing could be further from the truth when he runs into her at a singles retreat over the New Year.

Coming face to face with Eric and the emotions of their past relationship has Staci contemplating another disappearance—hopefully before he learns of the child she never told him about. Six years and many counseling sessions later, Staci knows that what she and Eric shared in the past had been anything but healthy. Even as she tries to resist his presence in her life, her heart is drawn to him once again. She can see the changes in Eric, but Staci is scared of reverting back into the person she’d been when they had been together.

As Eric learns about the depth of pain Staci endured as a result of their relationship, he tries to make things right, but will it be enough to help her trust him again? Or will his role in her life never go beyond father to the child they share together?

The Remarkable Soul of a Woman

by Dieter F. Uchdorf

The Remarkable Soul of a Woman

If you are feeling overwhelmed with change, challenges, or checklists, you may wonder how you can partake now of God’s happiness and find your pathway to peace, hope, and joy.

With loving insight, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf addresses two attributes that contribute to our Heavenly Father’s perfect happiness – the power of creation and service with compassion. As a treasured daughter of our Heavenly Father, you can develop those remarkable abilities as well as find happiness in the journey.

By listening to the Spirit, you can come to realize that creating is not just done with paint, pen, or pottery, and compassionate service is more than a casserole or a card. As you bring something into existence that has never been before and as you serve others – even in small ways – you cannot help but participate in the wonder that is God’s joy.

In The Remarkable Soul of a Woman, President Uchtdorf’s timely thoughts on creating and being compassionate will buoy you up, give you strength, and help you realize what a great power for good you truly are.

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.
