"I need help."

Those three words saved Grammy Award-winning singer Michelle Williams's life. After decades of sweeping her anxiety and depression under the rug--even during her years in the spotlight with Destiny's Child--Michelle found herself planning her own funeral. Realizing that she needed immediate help and could no longer battle her anxiety and depression alone, she checked herself into a treatment facility. When she came home, she was energized and determined to check in on a regular basis with herself, God, and others.

Practical, engaging, and full of wisdom, Checking In will give you the tools you need to:

  • Tear down the walls around your vulnerability that are hindering your healing
  • Reject the lies of anxiety and depression and replace them with the truth of God's Word
  • Trade toxic thought patterns for lasting joy
  • Find freedom by forgiving yourself and others
  • An uplifting, behind-the-scenes look at one woman's path to healing, Checking In reminds you that you're not alone and that God is not yet finished writing your story.

    Praise for Checking In:

    "Michelle Williams is one of the bravest, strongest women I know. She has fought through very public struggles and dark, hidden days of depression. And now, in Checking In, she's putting it all out there for everyone to see. Her story is powerful and relatable, and she wants you to know that you are not alone. Healing is possible. And she's here to walk through it with you."

    Creating Moments of Joy Along the Alzheimer's Journey: A Guide for Families and Caregivers

    Creating Moments of Joy Along the Alzheimer's Journey: A Guide for Families and Caregivers

    $25.00
    More Info
    The beloved best seller has been revised and expanded for the fifth edition. Jolene Brackey has a vision: that we will soon look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's disease to focus more of our energies on creating moments of joy. When people have short-term memory loss, their lives are made up of moments. We are not able to create perfectly wonderful days for people with dementia or Alzheimer's, but we can create perfectly wonderful moments, moments that put a smile on their faces and a twinkle in their eyes. Five minutes later, they will not remember what we did or said, but the feeling that we left them with will linger. The new edition of Creating Moments of Joy is filled with more practical advice sprinkled with hope, encouragement, new stories, and generous helpings of humor. In this volume, Brackey reveals that our greatest teacher is having cared for and loved someone with Alzheimer's and that often what we have most to learn about is ourselves.

    A flourishing, fulfilling life is possible--no perfection required!

    Too many of us think we have to have it all together in order to live a meaningful life. Instead of feeling put together, we end up feeling inadequate, overwhelmed, and exhausted as we try to figure out how to do it all.

    Author, business owner, and mom to three Lara Casey has been there, too. In Cultivate, she offers this grace-filled advice: we can't do it all and do it well, but we can choose to cultivate what matters

    Written as part encouragement anthem and part practical guide, Cultivate offers wisdom from God's Word alongside lessons Lara has learned in her own life--and in her garden--giving you the tools you need to:

  • Discern what matters most to you
  • Embrace the season of life that you're in
  • Find the joy and freedom that comes with cultivating what matters
  • Let Lara be your guide as you learn to cultivate what matters, little by little, with the help of God's transforming grace.

    Praise for Cultivate:

    "Cultivate is rich soil for the soul! Whether you are a new sprout, just beginning to brave life in the light; a tender shoot fighting for space among rocks and weeds; or a mature plant in need of nurture and pruning, this book will help you thrive. With her characteristic honesty, humility, and patience, Lara Casey uses her spiritual 'green thumb' to gently nudge us toward an intentional life of godliness and growth. If you are ready for a new season of spiritual growth, dig into Cultivate and get ready to bloom!"

    --Elizabeth Laing Thompson, author of When God Says "Wait"

    More Info

    Daring to Dance Again: Pearls of Wisdom for a Soul-Filled Life is a compilation of personal stories - sad and joyful, painful and funny. They are also universal stories that speak to our common humanity. The stories embrace our fallibilities and our weaknesses. They show us at our lowest moments. They also shine a light, showing the way. The author hopes these stories, in some small way, will help others embrace God and His heavenly and earth angels who are there to lift us up.


    Life is full of journeys that we did not choose to make. Some journeys - divorce, cancer, death - choose us. They test our faith. Yet it is faith, along with the love of others that save us.


    Each chapter of Daring to Dance Again will elicit different emotions, and each chapter concludes with "A Pearl of Wisdom," a bit of inspiration the author has gleaned from her life. Together these stories will resonate with readers who have dealt with divorce, grief, and loss, a serious illness, or any other challenge in life. And it will leave them with a renewed faith in God and a sense of hope.

    Driven by Eternity: Make Your Life Count Today & Forever (Anniversay, Revised, Expanded)

    More Info

    One day you will stand before God and give an account of your life. The most important question you can ask yourself now is, will you be ready?

    Most Christians know their response to the cross determines where they will spend eternity. But did you know that how you'll spend eternity is determined by what you do in this life?

    God wants you to discover your calling--he's not trying to keep you in the dark. In fact, He longs for you to find the meaning and purpose that comes with knowing why you've been placed on this earth.

    In Driven by Eternity, best-selling author John Bevere uses an eye-opening allegory and extensive Scripture to unveil how our daily choices shape our eternal existence.

    Life beyond the final breath is much more than a destination. Don't wait until it's too late. Discover your God-given destiny and make your life count both today and forever.

    Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds

    Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds

    $16.00
    More Info
    In the tradition of Octavia Butler, radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help to shape the futures we want.

    Inspired by Octavia Butler's explorations of our human relationship to change, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess, and learn from the swirling patterns around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist "spirituality" based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us.
