CURRENT BOOK (FEBRUARY)

THE BIG DEAL OF TAKING SMALL STEPS TO MOVE CLOSER TO GOD

Vashti Murphy McKenzie

Bishop McKenzie prescribes very small changes-such as adding a mere thirty seconds of prayer daily-that lead to radical closeness to God. And building an enjoyable, meaningful relationship with the Almighty doesn’t mean striving for perfection. Small steps-but meaningful steps-collectively evolve into intimacy with God. And the big deal result is greater ability to biblically address life challenges. The big deal is that you’re even more available to serve family, church, and community: truly in “no ways tired.” Increasing spirituality is incremental, not monumental. Mustard-seed-like increases in positive actions (and corresponding decreases in negative ones) yield mountain-moving growth!

UPCOMING BOOK (MARCH)

DISCERNING THE VOICE OF GOD

Priscilla Shirer

Shirer provides a personal study experience plus viewer guides for the group video sessions of this women’s Bible study. Having a hard time knowing what God is saying versus what others are saying? This Bible study is designed to help participants know the voice of God: his language, character, and tone of voice. By growing closer to God through His Word, participants will be able to discern God’s voice from the voice of strangers.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Priscilla Shirer

Priscilla Shirer is a wife and a mom first.  But put a Bible in her hand and a message in her heart and you’ll see why thousands flock to her conferences and dive into her Bible study series each year. She considers it a privilege to serve believers from every denomination and culture by helping them to know the truths of Scripture intellectually and encouraging them to experience these truths practically by the power of the Holy Spirit. Her books include Discerning the Voice of God, God is Able, and two New York Times Bestsellers – The Resolution for Women and Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan for Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer, which was named the 2016 Christian Book of the Year. Priscilla has been married to Jerry for 18 years.  Between studying and writing, she spends most of her time cleaning up after (and trying to satisfy the appetites of) their three growing boys – Jackson, Jerry Jr. and Jude.
