  • Anything by Jennie Allen

    What if you told God you would do anything . . . and he took you up on it?

    In the years since the initial release of"Anything," God continued to stretch Jennie Allen and her faith because of the courageous prayer of surrender that she and her husband, Zac, prayed, "God, we will do anything. Anything." Previously caught in the dizzying haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie went on to begin living out the adventure God had written for them--to include becoming the founder of IF: Gathering, an organization to gather, equip, and unleash the next generation to live out their purpose.


    "Anything" is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move you to stop chasing things that just make you feel happy and start living a surrendered life that matters.


    This newly revised edition is updated throughout to include a new introduction and an in-depth Bible study component for those who have been wanting to lead a study on this topic.


    Join Jennie on an adventure to discover your anything, those things that actually mean nothing until you know the God truly worth giving it all up for. And when you do, that will change everything.

  • Make It Happen by Lara Casey

    You were created for a purpose, and it's time to make it happen.


     

    Make It Happen is the story of how I surrendered my fear, took the leap, and got a life. In my case, a perfectly imperfect, fulfilling life as a mama, a working woman, and a grateful wife. This is the story of how I chose to make "it"—a greater purpose than mine—happen, and how you can too.

    Make It Happen is for

    women who find themselves worried, anxious, and completely overwhelmed by the constant chase for perfection

    those seeking the courage to jump into a new venture

    working women who are struggling to "do it all"

    weary wives and moms looking for relief from burning the candle at both ends

    anyone who dreams of a life lived not by accident, but on purpose

    Your time has come to take a leap of faith. Join me as we surrender our fears, end the chase for perfection, and say yes to cultivating the meaningful lives God desires for us.

    You know all those things you've always wanted to do?

  • Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin

    We all know it’s important to study God’s Word.


    But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible?


    Offering a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture, this book will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.

  • Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst

    The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than.

    In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection--from the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over to the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection's ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.


    With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will help you:


    Stop feeling left out by believing that even when you are overlooked by others you are handpicked by God.

    Change your tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process your hurt.

    Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady your soul and restore your confidence in the midst of rejection.

    Overcome the two core fears that feed your insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging. 


    Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken--a love that does not reject or uninvited.

  • Play with Fire by Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Play with Fire, the debut book by popular speaker and teacher Bianca Juarez Olthoff, is the reminder that God isn’t waiting until you have more resources or a spouse or a job so he can use you. He’s ready to use you now.


    Using the mythical creature, the Phoenix, which was also referenced by early church leaders, she parallels this story with God’s work in her own life, highlighting the beauty of reinvention with fire as both the impetus and the method for change. Olthoff reminds us that we serve a God who is redemptive and can take the worst situations and use them for His glory.


    Play With Fire is a bible-infused message that will help women discover:


    The way out of the middle is moving forward

    The personal and powerful nature of the Holy Spirit

    The power and sacrifice of transformation

    The unique calling and purpose of life involves transformation

    With Olthoff’s distinct style, strong storytelling gifts, and powerful bible teaching, Play with Fire will remind readers that God has huge dreams for them. In Bianca’s words, “He’s whispering in the wind and speaking through the fire and shouting in silence the extraordinary dream He is birthing in you. His dream for you is far greater than the dream you have for yourself. It’s not your identity or income or influence that will make this happen. Like Zechariah 4:6 says, “’It’s not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord.” It’s time to play with fire.
