You are probably still recovering from the rush of family, presents and good food as I speak. Perhaps you received a new e-reader or you have a little down time for reading? In other words, if you’re in the mood for some good free books or ones at a low price, I’ve come up with a list for you!
But before I feature a few books, I’d like to spotlight the No Stress Book Club that begins on January 3rd. It’s not too late to join! Just sign up here and hop on the forums with us. We’re reading Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions by Lysa TerKeurst. And what a great coincidence that as of the writing of this post, the Kindle version of Unglued is currently on sale for $3.79! If you want to do the study with us, this is a great price and you don’t have to have a Kindle to read the Kindle version. You can read it on any smart phone or on your computer with a Kindle app!
Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how.
Falling in Love by Susette Williams is a straight up Christian romance, gals, and it got four and half stars on Amazon. Wade McAlester falls in love with Katie the first day she walked into his clinic looking for a job. He hires her, content to settle for friendship until she lives out her dream of becoming a vet. Against his better judgment, Wade allows her to fix him up with a couple of her friends. The dates are disastrous. He can’t believe the kind of women Katie seems to think he’d enjoy spending his life with. However, when Wade’s old colleague, Dr. Laura Redmond, shows up, Katie is rethinking how happy she wants her boss to be, and with whom. Definitely not the gorgeous doctor.
Waiting for Sunrise by Eva Marie Everson is a fictional book about Patsy Milstrap, a woman who wishes she could leave her past behind. Though she tries to put on a brave front for the sake of her family, the wounds still ache, and the scars on her soul are still deeply felt. At her concerned husband’s gentle insistence, they take a vacation from South Carolina on Cedar Key, an idyllic island on Florida’s Gulf Coast. A week in paradise will do them good, he says. When a familiar–and most unexpected–face greets her at a seaside restaurant, Patsy knows she can no longer run from the past. But what will opening old wounds mean? And what will the future hold? With a large helping of Southern charm, Waiting for Sunrise is a touching story of family, young love, and the need for forgiveness. Eva Marie Everson expertly draws out the bittersweet moments of life, weaving them into a tale that will envelop your soul.
Where is God When it Hurts is a Gold Medallion Award–winning book. In it Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain–physical, emotional, and spiritual–and helps us understand why we suffer. Where Is God When It Hurts? will speak to those for whom life sometimes just doesn’t make sense. And it will help equip anyone who wants to reach out to someone in pain but just doesn’t know what to say.
