TRUE STORIES OF CHANGED LIVES
"Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth" ~ Revelation 14:6
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
you pray for the neighbors that drive you crazy,
the man with two wives is baptized,
a believer with a bad temper wants to overcome,
you’ve made a deal with the devil but want out, or
you discover that what you were taught was wrong?
When people encounter Jesus, lives change. Dan Serns’s Changed Lives presents a dozen true stories of real people who chose to fully open their hearts to the powerful truth of Christ’s saving grace. Each one faced incredible obstacles—from physical addictions to spiritual strangleholds—but by surrendering to the powerful promises of the Bible, the way forward became clear: Jesus.
Each short story, just two to five pages, is followed by a number of thoughtful study questions (with Bible verses and space to write answers) and opportunities to commit to transformational action. It is ideal for small groups, personal study, and new–member growth. Jesus’ final message is going around the world in preparation for his return. Now is the best time to embrace it—and share it.
Includes Bible Study Questions at the end of each chapter.
When Dr. Joe Wheeler wrote his first Christmas story 32 years ago, he didn’t realize God was setting him up to develop the longest running Christmas story series in America. Book 30, the last of the series, is a collection of Dr. Wheeler’s own stories from books 1–27, plus two new stories.
A couple of years ago, a traumatic brain injury resulting from a stairway fall nearly brought the series to a halt with volume 27—but not before about a million Christmas books were ensconced in homes and libraries around the world. During his recovery, Dr. Wheeler has turned his eye toward the impact of stories on families.
I've been rereading the stories God and I have cowritten over the years, belatedly discovering that they focus on love, marriage, and the family! Perhaps, God is orchestrating (behind the scenes) a spiritual rebirth of love, marriage, and the family—and this book could be part of it. —Joe L. Wheeler
This collection promises to bring warmth and inspiration to your home, as well. Find a quiet, cozy corner and lose yourself in the radiance of the Advent season, one story at a time.
Since we have now—after thirty long years—come full circle, it is fitting that I dedicate this final book in the Christmas in My Heart® series (and the series itself) to the remarkable woman whose voice dominates the soundtrack of my childhood. Who more could deserve this particular dedication than the woman who home-schooled me for fourteen of the first sixteen years of my life: my beloved mother—Barbara Leininger Wheeler.

They are God's true and loyal followers in every age whose love for Him--whose commitment to Him--is too strong and deep to be shaken.
God has always had a people--a people called to stand separate from error and compromise and lies and counterfeits.
God has always had a people--a people chosen to show and tell the world what He is really like--to defend and proclaim His truth.
And God still has a people. Standing in that long, unbroken line of the faithful that began with Adam and Eve, God has a called and chosen remnant today. And to His remnant people, God has given the urgent task of reaching out to the world with His good news--of winning them to Jesus Christ so that when He returns soon to this earth, they will know Him and be ready to meet him.
Who is called? Who is chosen? You are!
The purpose of this book is encouragement for Seventh-day Adventists. As God's faithful people struggle through difficult times it helps to look back on the way He has led in the past. When we see His faithfulness and recognize over and over again that He is in complete control over the affairs of planet earth, we marvel and feel greater confidence as we look to the future.
Ordinary Woman, Extraordinary God (by Alison McLeod (Author), Jan Levin (Contributor)

Sale! Limited quantities available!
Another health and healing book! So why is Ordinary Woman, Extraordinary God different from all the other books? Alison has lived through many traumatic experiences, yet emerges triumphant and well, in every phase of her life: emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This book is not a step-by-step "how to be well" book, but the inspirational story of a woman facing pain and trauma and her journey--supported by written evidence of medical physicians--from death to life.
"If there was ever a person who could understandably be angry, bitter, and have a good reason to give up on life, Alison McLeod is that woman. Facing sexual molestation at an early age, living with a mother suffering the devastating effects of chemotherapy, and watching her four-year-old son die of inoperable brain cancer; these reasons would be more than enough for Alison to become hardened and throw in the towel. Add to that an unfaithful spouse, divorce, and then her own life-threatening battle with cancer, and you have a toxic recipe for tremendous suffering. And yet, because of the grace and love of God, Alison has emerged strong, healed, and is completely well, emotionally and physically. She tells her story in her soft, gentle manner because that is exactly who she is--quietly and uncomplainingly sharing her pain without requesting pity. Her inspirational strength and unshakeable faith and trust in God are rock solid and give hope to all those battling hopeless causes! Readers who have experienced the loss of a child, divorce, sickness, sexual molestation, or dysfunctional relationships will all find help and comfort in the pages of this book." --Jan Levin
That inner-critic living in our minds, rent-free, is not your friend. He tries to persuade us that our past is inescapable and more important than the future. He loves to play mind games with us, and somehow we always tend to lose. He points out all that is wrong with us. He echoes all the negative voices from long ago. If only we could evict the inner-critic and forget that he ever existed.
In, You are Worth it, we seek to silence this unwelcome mind-dweller. Rather, we listen to the powerful voices around us telling us that we are worth it. We evaluate what should really determine worth. We focus on significant reasons that loudly proclaiming our worth. Replace the old pair of glasses through which you saw yourself with a new pair that sees you in a brand new and beautiful way. Yes, you are so worth it. Now believe it and banish the inner-critic.
What does it mean to have success in life? What promises has God given us for a successful life? There is no strength in small plans. Our marvelous God wants us to think big. Do you want to be His coworker?
Helmut Haubeil shares how he learned to lead people to Christ step by step. A personal relationship with Jesus is the most valuable relationship there is. How can I show this to others? What opening question can be used to tactfully and straightforwardly get to the main issue? What tried and tested tools are available that make it significantly easier for helpers and participants when talking about faith? These valuable tools are included in the Starter-Set.
Then a spiritual-missionary concept will be introduced, which shows how we as individuals or groups, as a church or conference can victoriously advance under God’s leadership.
May God give each of us the joy of being Jesus’ spirit-filled coworker!
“What is it that makes both men and women think that in order to be equal, they must deny that any differences between them exist?”
No one will argue that men and women approach life differently. Shields uses her life experiences to take a thoughtful, biblical, and often humorous approach to addressing some of these differences, helping men and women embrace them, and building a bridge in the dialogue between the genders. She also includes questions at the end of each chapter to facilitate that dialogue.
