By Rachel Marie Stone
Our relationship with food is complicated to say the least. But God intended for us to delight in our food. Rachel Stone calls us to rediscover joyful eating by receiving food as God’s good gift of provision and care for us. She shows us how God intends for us to relate to him and each other through food, and how our meals can become expressions of generosity, community and love of neighbor. Eating together can bring healing to those with eating disorders, and we can make wise choices for sustainable agriculture. Ultimately, redemptive eating is a sacramental act of culture making through which we gratefully herald the feast of the kingdom of God. Filled with practical insights and some tasty recipes, this book provides a Christian journey into the delight of eating. Come to the table, partake of the Bread of Life—and eat with joy.

By Julia Scatliff O’Grady
[easyazon-link asin=”B00BFYKSUM” locale=”us”]Kindle Ebook[/easyazon-link] ONLY $2.99!!!
We say we want to better manage our time but what do we really mean? Do we mean we seek to tame the daily chaos? Are we afraid of how time seems to fly?
Author Julia Scatliff O’Grady set out on a journey to discover how we might experience the gift of time on our own terms. She met with many settling on 10 singular people with a variety of professions and life circumstances. She listened and she questioned and she listened some more. What she heard was not just a clock ticking, but something perhaps even promising, something as prescriptive as it is philosophical.
The key could be as these profiles of 10 GOOD BUSY people attest to name our own philosophies of being GOOD BUSY.

By Mark Scandrette
Why does chasing the good life make us feel so bad? We dream big and spend our money and time chasing our dreams—only to find ourselves exhausted, deeply in debt and spiritually empty. Mark and Lisa Scandrette realized at the beginning of their lives together that what they want, what they need and what they were being told to want didn’t sync up. In Free Mark (with a little help from Lisa) shares the secrets of how they bought a home and raised a family debt-free in the most expensive city in the United States—and how they’ve enjoyed good relationships, good adventures and good food along the way.
