Let It Go: Forgive So You Can Be Forgiven
Jakes, T. D.
T.D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author and pastor to millions worldwide, challenges us to release ourselves and others from the crippling grudges and binding resentments that hold us back when we do not forgive others. "Forgiveness is a big idea and works best when invested into people who have the courage to grasp the seven-foot idea of what's best for their future rather than the four-foot-high idea of recompense for what has happened in the past," Jakes writes. Inspired by the Lord's Prayer, Let It Go explores forgiveness as a life practice and offers specific and clear actions for readers who seek to apply it in every area of their lives - their marriages, their families, their friendships, and their business relationships. "Offenses are a part of life," says Jakes, "but conflicts can be resolved and relationships restored when we stop paying the past with the resources of our future." With his inimitable spiritual teaching and street-smart understanding of human nature, Jakes inspires us to embrace our destiny instead of obsessing about our history. No matter how great or small the injustice, Jakes shows us how the hurt can be hurdled, so that we might live in the joyful freedom waiting to be discovered when we Let It Go!

The President's Devotional
In the heat of Barack Obama's first presidential campaign, staff member Joshua DuBois recognized the wear and tear on his boss and asked the senator if he could e-mail a devotional to him each day. When Obama responded positively, DuBois prepared a short e-mail for the future president to read first thing every morning, short snippets of scripture, inspirational stories, quotes, and prayers to provide counsel, encouragement, and inspiration, which the president himself has stated "meant the world" to him. Through his years of working closely with the president, DuBois learned many life-changing lessons as well as gained an inside view on the faith and values of President Obama. DuBois now provides 365 of the best readings and prayers he sent the president; in addition, each month DuBois offers a longer meditation on the spiritual lessons he learned by accompanying the president as he faced many historic moments and challenges--two elections, meeting Billy Graham, the Sandy Hook shootings, and more. By spending time each day with The President's Devotional, we are reminded what is most important in life, that we are not alone in our efforts, and what our true mission is in the world.

Her mother screamed for help, and a nurse tried to revive her . . . to no avail. Today, Crystal does not remember what happened in that hospital room during the nine minutes she was unconscious and unable to breathe on her own. She has no memory of the panic and the rushing nurses and the loud cries of "Code Blue." She simply remembers drifting off. And she remembers waking up in heaven.

Waking Up in Heaven invites readers along on a journey to witness the relentless pursuit of God in a life that was shattered and seemingly beyond hope, an awe-inspiring account of love, forgiveness, and redemption, and the healing power of God's presence.
(Un)Qualified: How God Uses Broken People to do Big Things
Who You Think You Are is Not as Important as Who God Says You Are Many of us wrestle with the gap between our weaknesses and our dreams, between who we are and who God says we are meant to be. We feel unqualified to do God's work or to live out the calling we imagine. But God has a way of using our weaknesses for good. In fact, God loves unqualified people. In (Un)Qualified, Pastor Steven Furtick helps you peel back the assumptions you've made about yourself and see yourself as God sees you. Because true peace and confidence come not from worldly perfection but from acceptance: God's acceptance of you, your acceptance of yourself, and your acceptance of God's process of change. This is a book about understanding your identity in light of who God is. It's a book about coming to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in your life and learning to let God use you. It's about charging into the gap between your present and your hopes and meeting God there. After all, God can't bless who you pretend to be. But he longs to bless who you really are; a flawed and broken person. Good thing for us that God is in the business of using broken people to do big things. Being Unqualified Is God's Favorite Qualification Our culture tells us that the answer to our failures is to fix them. The solution to our weaknesses is to hide them. The secret to our success is to appear as flawless as possible. But God's qualifying system is different than the world's. So is his view of our weaknesses, our purpose, and our true selves. In (Un)Qualified, Steven Furtick explores who God is as the great "I AM," and then helps us discover our own identity. Delving into the story of Jacob, Furtick invites us to acknowledge our weaknesses and ask God to work through them. The truth is, God has created us to be more, to accomplish more, and to love life more than we ever thought possible. But to become who he has called us to be, we must embrace who we are right now. (Un)Qualified equips us to face obstacles and failures without losing a sense of purpose. We can have a thriving sense of hope that God is working in us and through us, not in spite of our weaknesses but often as a direct result of them.
Will of God as a Way of Life
Maybe it's simpler than we make it. We all have important concerns -- whom to marry, what job to take, where to send our kids to school, which church to join. God's perspective on how such matters fit into his perfect will is practical. Liberating. Filled with hope, grace, and new possibilities. The Will of God as a Way of Life reassures us that God's will is not difficult to find, confusing to follow, or easy to miss. Even in the face of our sometimes foolish choices, God can lead us back into the center of his perfect will. Still, we have questions. How free are we if God has a perfect plan for our lives? Do suffering and trouble mean we're off track? How exactly does God speak? Jerry Sittser reveals what the Bible has to say about these and other vital questions. This updated and thoroughly revised edition cuts to the core of knowing and doing the will of God. Knowing it may be easy. Doing it can be difficult -- at least at times. But in every way, living God's will as a way of life is better than any of us can imagine.
The Gentle Art of Blessing: A Simple Practice That Will Transform You and Your World
How can a blessing change the world? According to Pierre Pradervand, making the conscious choice to bless every person or being around you can truly make a world of difference in yourself and in others around you. In The Gentle Art of Blessing, Pradervand shows that the practice of blessing has the power to create more than just a renewed perspective. It unleashes tangible benefits throughout your entire life - through your daily interactions, your life-long relationships, and in the way your approach your place in the world. Pradervand describes blessing as genuinely wishing the best for another person through seeing their individual worth and honoring them for it. By looking at several different perspectives - providing spiritual inspiration from Hinduism, Taoism, the Koran, the Bible, and other important spiritual sources - The Gentle Art of Blessing explores the potential in shifting one's attitude from confrontation and negativity to acceptance and enthusiasm. A powerfully simple way of perceiving and shaping our surroundings, blessings can reflect the unconditional love and acceptance that is necessary for world - and inner - peace.
