LA LA LOVELY shows you that beauty is right in the center of the mess of life.

Author Trina McNeilly has spent almost a decade blogging, collecting and cataloging beautiful images, sharing ideas and information. While she spent her days sharing beauty, redecorating her home, looking for lovely things and sharing her finds, her parents' divorce after almost forty years of marriage shattered her vision of "home."

Through this journey, Trina learned that beauty is not beyond the laundry pile, chipped paint, dirty dishes, broken table or broken life. It's right in the center of it. Trina found that God IS beauty. And that he invites us to look, discover, uncover and find because when we find beauty, we find God.

In LA LA LOVELY, Trina shares stories and inspiration from her journey of finding, and being found, by beauty. You will find deep matters of the heart along with practical pointers on things like decorating your home, finding your style, and creating beautiful spaces. Each chapter offers essays, beautiful photographs, design tips, and practical advice for creating a place of beauty and belonging no matter where you live or what you're going through.

Story in the Stars

Joe Amaral
Authors:
Joe Amaral

Thousands of words have been written about the first ten words in the Bible: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth," a simple and profound statement that has ignited a firestorm of debate and controversy. People often only focus on the "how" and "when" of creation, but Story in the Stars explores the "why." Why did God create such a vast universe? Why did He choose the sun and moon to light our paths? Why did He design images with stars in the night sky?The Bible is very clear when it states that God created, named, and positioned all of the stars of the universe in their place in a very specific way-a way that tells us the greatest story ever to be told. In Luke 21:25 Jesus says, "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars." Signs are meant to point us towards something: Jesus. Story in the Stars takes an in-depth look at the Bible and all the signs God mapped out through constellations, planets, and even the way the Earth is tilted. We are uniquely designed by God, and He loves us so much that He ensured a way for all inhabitants of the earth, through all of time, to see the messages of salvation and redemption that He painted in the stars.

The Big Deal of Taking Small Steps to Move Closer to God

Vashti Murphy McKenzie
Authors:
Vashti Murphy McKenzie

THE BIG DEAL... shows how to develop a stronger relationship with God and more effective spiritual lifestyle by taking small steps that lead to big changes.Bishop McKenzie prescribes very small changes-such as adding a mere thirty seconds of prayer daily-that lead to radical closeness to God. In a rapidly changing culture of uncertainty, there is a way to build a more meaningful relationship with the Almighty that's enjoyable. It doesn't mean striving for perfection. Instead, it's taking small yet meaningful steps to increase intimacy with God. The result of these small changes is greater ability to address life's challenges and greater availability to serve family, church, and community. Increasing spirituality is incremental, not monumental. Mustard-seed-like increases in positive actions (and corresponding decreases in negative ones) yield mountain-moving growth!
