How do trees live? Do they feel pain or have awareness of their surroundings? Research is now suggesting trees are capable of much more than we have ever known. In The Hidden Life of Trees, forester Peter Wohlleben puts groundbreaking scientific discoveries into a language everyone can relate to.

In so many ways, God is always reaching for us: through circumstances in life, through hardships, and through joys.

Nothing in Heaven or on Earth can change our lives for the better more than a personal relationship with the Lord.
