God sends invitations to us…and sometimes they seem less compelling than the items on our to-do list. Why would we want to say yes to an invitation to rest when we’re already dreadfully behind?

She teaches us to attend to the quiet voice of the Great Inviter. And LeighAnn McCoy explains how to approach God in honesty through prayer and how to hear His voice through Scripture, as she wrote about in Oh God, Please Teach Me to Pray (Freeman-Smith, ISBN# 978-1-60587-371-8) and Oh God, Please Help Me with My Doubt (Freeman-Smith, ISBN# 978-1-60587-372-5).

Busy, busy, busy! We are the keepers of packed schedules, and for most, the one appointment that gets rushed – or skipped entirely – is time spent hidden away with God. In fact, we risk missing Him in the moments of life where He waits to be seen! In her DVD Be Still (Cook),  Lisa Chan explores the pressures, perceptions, and expectations that women face and challenges us to enjoy simply being at the feet of Jesus. Bible teacher Joanne Ellison wonders how many people really think about what Jesus said and how his words could break through our darkness and transform our lives. She unpacks the “red letter” words of the Bible and encourages the practice of Making Space for the Words of Jesus. AndChandra Peele calls for a makeover of the stereotypical Church Lady (New Hope, ISBN# 978-1-59669-323-4), changing her from tarnished, ugly, gossiping picture people tend to have into the loveable, giving, serving woman God intended!

A breast cancer diagnosis is both physically and emotionally devastating, and Dr. Taffy Anderson learned that first hand over five years ago when she faced her own diagnosis. Though she walked into the journey with a doctor’s understanding, she was also a wife, daughter, sister, aunt…and woman…a seeker of the Treasures in Darkness (Lift Every Voice, ISBN# 978-0-8024-8250-1). Crystal Renaud faced a different kind of darkness: the trap of pornography. Her addiction began when she was just ten years old, and for years she found herself bound to this deep and socially silent sin. Finally she surrendered to the Lord, confessed her sin, embraced accountability and owned her addiction…all parts of her healing and restoration. She shares the truth of how Dirty Girls Come Clean (Moody, ISBN# 978-0-8024-6300-5).
