Aging Faithfully

28 Days of Prayer  
Missy Buchanan
Aging is part of God's plan, says author Missy Buchanan—and it's a gift, not punishment.

Aging Faithfully is divided into four weekly themes: Accepting the Challenges of Aging Finding God's Purpose in Aging Overcoming the Temptations of Aging Dis...

Do Not Live Afraid

Faith in a Fearful World  
John Indermark
In scripture, the opposite of faith is often fear. With remarkable frequency, the first thing God says to those poised at the edge of momentous decisions or holy encounters is, "Do not be afraid."

This book invites readers and groups who gather around it to take that word to heart — and beyond heart to living. Each chapter considers a theme that explores w...
