  • Simplifiy by Bill Hybels

    Bill Hybels
    Overscheduled. Exhausted. Overwhelmed. Sound familiar? Too familiar? You are living at a velocity you know deep down is unsustainable. Your life is off course - too crammed with busyness, too out of focus. You keep waiting for things to get better, but they never do. In Simplify, bestselling author Bill Hybels identifies core issues that drive this kind of living and offers action steps to help you live a better way. By eradicating clutter from your inner world, you can experience immediate rewards: greater energy, clearer purpose, richer relationships and more. Your life won't simplify itself. You must act. Isn't it time?

    Bill Hybels is the founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church and the best selling author of more than twenty books. He now speaks around the world on issues related to leadership, personal growth and building thriving churches.
  • The Life you Never Expected by Andrew & Rachel Wilson

    Andrew and Rachel Wilson
    Sometimes you end up living the life you never expected. When Andrew and Rachel found out that one, and then both, of their children had severe autism, their world was turned on its head. This is a book about surviving and thriving when something goes horribly wrong. It is a mixture of their story and God's story and the way in which His has shaped theirs. With clarity and biblical insight, they share their experience of grief and worship, struggle and hope. As well as reflecting on the specific challenges of raising young children with special needs, they look at the problem of suffering, building a marriage under pressure, fighting for joy and trusting is God's goodness. This is not just a book for families and friends of special needs children, but for all who have been thrown a curve ball in life and need to know how to lament, worship, pray and hope.
