Here's a refreshing look at what it means to be a woman of faith in today's world. Based on the Women of Faith seminar, "The Joyful Journey," this collection of anecdotes discusses the obstacles, bumps, and detours women sometimes face along the journey of life. With warmth and humor, the authors encourage us to allow friendship, laughter, and celebration to steer our hearts closer to God. Patsy Clairmont and Barbara Johnson are both best selling authors, Marilyn Meberg is a speaker with several tapes to her name, and Luci Swindoll is the former vice president of public relations for Insight for Living.
Marilyn Johnson's Lives in Ruins is an absorbing and entertaining look at the lives of contemporary archaeologists as they sweat under the sun for clues to the puzzle of our past. Johnson digs and drinks alongside archaeologists, and chases them through the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and even Machu Picchu. Her subjects share stories about slaves and Ice Age hunters, ordinary soldiers of the American Revolution, Chinese woman warriors, sunken fleets, and mummies.
"Great introduction to archaeology for the general"
Marilyn Johnson was enthralled by the remarkable lives that were marching out of this world - so she sought out the best obits in the English language and the people who spent their lives writing about the dead. She surveyed the darkest corners of Internet chat rooms, and made a pilgrimage to London to savor the most caustic and literate obits of all. Now she leads us on a compelling journey into the cult and culture behind the obituary page and the unusual lives we don't quite appreciate until they're gone.
"A Thorough Pleasure"
With the same wit and insight that have characterized their previous devotionals such as Joy Breaks and OverJoyed!, Patsy Clairmont, Barbara Johnson, Marilyn Meberg, Luci Swindoll, Sheila Walsh, and Thelma Wells shine a spotlight for you on grace. Grace that cleanses your sin. Grace that guides your life. Grace that weathers life's fiercest storms and stamps every cloud with the rainbow of God's promise. Grace to grieve and laugh, give and gain, love and live. Extravagant Grace.
"Like being at your own WOF Conference!"
Buried in information? Cross-eyed over technology? From the bottom of a pile of paper and discs, books, e-books, and scattered thumb drives comes a cry of hope: Make way for the librarians! They want to help. They're not selling a thing. And librarians know best how to beat a path through the googolplex sources of information available to us.
"Marian Isn't You Librarian"
Distilled from the Bible's timeless truths and the experiences of everyday life, these meditations reveal a love that is boundless, fearless, stubborn, lavish, outlandish, and intentional.
What do you get when you mix courage, faith, humor, and a few spunky women? You get Overjoyed!, a brand new devotional by six impressible authors who know how to squeeze the maximum amount of gladness out of life.
The speakers of the Women of Faith conference offer irresistible reason for rejoicing in every circumstance of life. Using the metaphor of a circus, they encourage us to revel in the 3 rings of God's love. They join us in skipping across the high wire of his grace, falling back on his safety net of peace, celebrating his hope, and laughing aloud in the freedom that lets us live our lives with abandon. Patsy Clairmont, Barbara Johnson, Marilyn Meberg, Luci Swindoll, Sheila Walsh, and Thelma Wells are popular authors and speakers.
