A young mother's life is forever changed and her faith in God is broken when her son in diagnosed with several birth defects. Restore and grow your faith as you read about Hilary Yancey's personal journey back to God.

Hilary Yancey thought she had unshakable faith until it was truly tested. Married to her college sweetheart and jubilantly expecting their first child, when a routine ultrasound revealed her baby's significant facial cleft, a missing eye, and one especially tiny ear, Hilary asked God for a miracle and believed her son would be healed.

But he wasn't. And the weeks the couple spent beside their baby's hospital bed became a spiritual exile for the young mother, where she contemplated faith, nearly lost all of it she had, wrestled with anger with God, and was reintroduced to Him by her beautiful baby boy, Jackson.

For readers of spiritual narrative, new parents in the midst of the challenge, anyone who has experienced faith-shattering circumstances, or those who find themselves lost in the wilderness of shaken belief, this book will provoke honest self-reflection and encouragement through a mother's vulnerable, raw account of her journey back to God.

Biographical Notes

Writer Hilary Yancey examines the significance within ordinary aspects of everyday life. She earnestly and vividly explores the challenges and blessings of womanhood, marriage, and motherhood, and how these things as well as faith are impacted by the disability of a child. She is also a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at Baylor University. Hilary, her husband Preston, and her young son Jack live in Waco, TX. Her blog can be read at www.thewildlove.com.

The Audacious Molly Bruno

Marie Armenia
Authors:
Marie Armenia

Meet Molly Bruno, the real-life prayer warrior who inspired the character "Miss Clara" in the film War Room. Learn from Molly how to pray boldly, with audacity, believing that nothing is impossible for God.THE AUDACIOUS MOLLY BRUNO, written by her daughter MARIE ARMENIA, is a holy and hilarious mentoring resource for women who desperately long for wisdom from a Godly mother-someone who is a living example of practical experience and steadfast faith. It is also a wakeup call for older women of faith, encouraging them to embrace the calling of Titus 2:3-5 to mentor younger women about what's truly important in life."When I think of my mother's prayers," author Marie writes, "I remember the prayer she prayed every morning without fail, 'Lord, please send someone my way today that I can tell about you.' Everyone (and I mean everyone) who met Molly Bruno fell in love with her. This includes the Kendrick Brothers, who wrote and directed the film War Room. During filming of the movie, they met Molly, calling her the modern-day Ms. Clara of War Room. She inspired them, just like she inspired everyone around her. When she prayed, she got answers.Molly lived a lifetime of believing she could boldly approach the very throne of God 'with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.' My mother didn't teach me how to pray any more than she taught me how to breathe. I saw her pray REAL prayers, using REAL words addressed to a REAL God. I learned by observing my mother's prayer life that the last thing on earth that should be edited is a prayer. Shameless audacity. Those words remind me of my mother's approach to prayer. She had no fear of God's displeasure or that He might scold her for asking for impossible things. She had no need to edit her heart to the One she loved. She knew He knew her heart. Having settled this between herself and God, she asked. And asked again. And got incredible answers time and time again."THE AUDACIOUS MOLLY BRUNO is about a woman who offered hope and joy and light to every single person she met.

The vegan diet, developed by twin actors and social media stars Nina and Randa Nelson (whose careers and personal lives were nearly destroyed by out of control acne) teaches people how to naturally conquer acne once and for all.Before they created The Clear Skin Diet, Nina and Randa and-tried nearly everything to deal with their acne-expensive facials, lotions, antibiotics, and other painful procedures. Several doctors told them their only hope for recovery was Accutane. So they decided to try to deal with their problem from the inside out-by changing their diet. Their dietary intervention worked, and there has been no stopping them since. The girls now share the good news about how they achieved beautiful skin without drugs with millions of people across the world, many of whom write regularly with their own heart-warming success stories. The recipes Nina and Randa created for The Clear Skin Diet are based on diets eaten by a variety of people around the world who have no acne in their society, such as Papua New Guinea, Eastern Paraguay, and rural South Africa. The food is healthy, starch-based, low-fat, inexpensive, and delicious. An acne solution and easy diet, all in one.

In summer of 2013, family and friends watched helplessly as author Sarah E. Ball spiraled into the darkest season of her life. A passionate woman of God, wife, mom of five, and popular blogger, Sarah nevertheless found herself abruptly taken captive by a severe anxiety and panic disorder. She began sharing the intimate details of her breakdown and recovery with her readers, creating an online series Fearless in 21 Days as a 21-day guide to overcoming anxiety. Much to Sarah's surprise, her blog reached #2 on Google search for deliverance from anxiety, and she soon found herself sharing her keys to fearlessness on several national television programs, including two 1-hour interviews on Insight with Paul Arthur, two appearances on Lifeline with Dick & Joan, on several episodes of the Miracle Channel show Devoted, and even an invitation to 100 Huntley Street for 2017. Her blog series won First Place in the 2016 Word Alive Press Women's Journey of Faith Contest.In FEARLESS IN 21 DAYS, Sarah takes the readers through 21 revelations that focus on healing the whole self-body, mind, and soul-and bridging the gap between effective mental health therapies and Scripture. This book first offers practical tips that can dramatically reduce the immediate symptoms of anxiety and then dives deeper into spiritual and mental truths to create a hope-filled guide to freedom from anxiety so that readers may boldly and bravely fulfill their purpose in Christ-fearlessly.

Queens of Noise

Evelyn McDonnell
Authors:
Evelyn McDonnell

In four years the teenage members of the Runaways did what no other group of female rock musicians before them could: they released four albums for a major label and toured the world. The Runaways busted down doors for every girl band that followed. Joan Jett, Sandy West, Cherrie Currie, lead guitarist Lita Ford, and bassists Jackie Fox and Vicky Blue were pre-punk bandits, fostering revolution girl style decades before that became a riot grrrl catchphrase.The story of the Runaways has never been told in its entirety. Drawing on interviews with most of this seminal rock band's former members as well as controversial manager Kim Fowley, Queens of Noise will look beyond the lurid voyeuristic appeal of a sex-drugs-rock 'n' roll saga to give the band its place in musical, feminist, and cultural history.
