We are designed to mother in relationship with other women.
You’re not meant to mother alone. Better Together explores the notion that women are not designed to mother alone. We are designed to mother in relationship with other women who understand what a mom’s life is like. We’re also designed to mother in relationship with the God who created us. This book encourages every mother to find her mothering community, a place where she can both give and receive support in the many forms moms need. Beyond encouraging moms to be in community, Better Together teaches how to build a tribe and what to do together once you have one, such as: * Learn together—fill in each other’s weaknesses with each other’s strengths * Help together—enjoy community while accomplishing various tasks * Care Together—offer day-to-day care as well as crisis support * Share together—find healing and strength in opening up to one another * Pray together—stand in the gap for each other when one among you is just dogged tired * Forgive together—enjoy the in-and-outs of mothering friendships, even the tough parts * Encourage together—pay attention to one another and cheer each other on Better Together presents an uncommon and compelling vision of motherhood: a group effort full of joy and strength.
Embrace who you are in order to become who God has called you to be.
NYT best-selling pastor invites readers to embrace who they really are, in order to become who God has called them to be. Furtick examines the nature of the divine as the great “I AM,” and in turn helps the reader examine his or her own identity. Using Jacob/Israel as a test case, Furtick helps us all to confront our weaknesses. Instead of hiding our shortcomings, Furtick invites us to reveal them and ask God to work through them. This is the paradox of the Christian life: that our weakness makes us strong. That God chooses to work through our imperfection. Pastor Furtick encourages the reader, “embrace who you really are, to become who you are called to be.” While that might seem counterintuitive to some, we have to admit that we can’t pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps. We must realize, as Furtick has through his own challenging journey, that God can’t bless who we pretend to be. He blesses who we really are.

The inspiring story of Lecrae's journey to faith and freedom explains why he's captivated so many.

What God can if you believe big and open your heart.
A simple potato farmer with a mighty faith and a willing heart—God steps in and changes everything, just like He can do for you. Internationally bestselling author and ministry leader Angus Buchan is the author of Faith Like Potatoes and the founder of Mighty Men Conferences, which have drawn more than 500,000 attendees to Buchan’s Shalom Farm Ministry in South Africa, with additional Mighty Men Conferences drawing thousands more worldwide. Although Buchan speaks to thousands all over the world, he and his wife, Jill, are simple potato farmers who know what it means to allow God to do more through them than they could ever imagine. They founded Beth-Hatlaim, a ministry that aims to provide a permanent home for children who have been abandoned or orphaned, with no known relatives. Buchan travels and leads crusades similar to the likes of Billy Graham. This 365-day devotional will help you see what God can do in your life when you believe big and open your heart. Devotions focus on sharing your faith, serving others, and becoming a little more like Jesus each day.
Making wise decisions in the midst of endless demands.
Learn to find and play the role God wants most for you to play, not the ones you feel pressured into playing for the sake of others or even our sense of accomplishment and worth. Most of us spend a lot of our lives figuring out when to say yes and when to say no. How to manage our time, reduce stress, do our best for our families, find a little space for "me." But we don't find space for our souls until we learn to step past the yes and no of daily decisions and seek a third option: the best yes. The best yes is the choice that shapes all our other choices. (And our choices determine the direction of our lives.)
