The emotional trauma we suffer as children not only shapes our emotional lives as adults but also affects our physical health and overall well-being. Scientists now know on a biochemical level exactly how parents' chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical "fingerprints" on our brains.

How would it feel to enter into prayer with confidence and assurance - certain that God heard you and that your prayers would make a difference? It would likely feel amazing and unfamiliar. That's because often our prayers seem to be met with silence or don't appear to change anything. Either response can lead to disappointment or even despair in the face of our ongoing battles and unmet longings - especially when we don't know if we're doing something wrong or if some prayers just don't work.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. After his first book on prayer, Walking with God, I was hooked with John's way of writing, his storytelling, and his passion for Christ. Moving Mountains picks up where the other book left off and takes you to a new place. Enjoy and get closer to God!

  • The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert

In her late 30's, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down - the idea that Christianity, a religion she had regarded as problematic, might be right about who God was. That idea seemed to fly in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a train wreck at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

Articulate. Authentic. Vulnerable. A challenged an encouraging story though at times opinionated. If you are not Reformed Presbyterian or a psalm singer are you saved?

  • You Are What You Love

  • The Spiritual Power of Habit
  • By: James K. A. Smith

In this book, award-winning author James K. A. Smith shows that who and what we worship fundamentally shape our hearts. And while we desire to shape culture, we are not often aware of how culture shapes us. We might not realize the ways our hearts are being taught to love rival gods instead of the One for whom we were made. Smith helps listeners recognize the formative power of culture and the transformative possibilities of Christian practices.

Valuable text for challenging new ways of engaging older traditions. Author is very articulate thought use of some terminology gets confusing and difficult to follow. Criticism of newer church movements not balanced with what value they may be offering.
