Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

Dawn Obrecht grew up with two alcoholic parents, rode her own addiction to the edge of suicide, and then became an MD Addictionist and professor. In her third book, WHO'S YOUR HIGHER POWER, she focuses attention on a question of profound importance that has been surprisingly neglected in the addictions literature-how does one fully embrace the first three steps to recovery when views of a Higher Power have been distorted by life? In "WHO'S YOUR HIGHER POWER", Dr. Dawn Obrecht shares insightful and touching narratives about "finding a God of your own understanding" from thirty courageous consociates who she compassionately calls "alcoholics and addicts I have known and loved." RECOVERY FROM ADDICTION, from depression, trauma or any other discomfort, painful feeling, habit or dysfunction, is not about simply refraining from some substance or process or merely taking a medication to alter how you feel. Yes, there are neurological disturbances that respond to medication. Many people find antidepressants, mood stabilizers and other medication to be a useful or even necessary part of recovery. They also find that they need to do more than just take a prescription medication; they need to participate in their own growth. Recovery is about change, about striving for and embracing a physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy and vibrant life. It is about filling the void that you have carried in your unfulfilled hunger for purpose and meaning, a void you tried to fill with alcohol or drugs. It is about walking a new path, one that you may not have dreamed possible

"God spoke to me." "The Spirit spoke to my heart." "God revealed the idea to me." Being close to God means communicating with him—telling him what is on our hearts in prayer and hearing and understanding what he is saying to us. It is this second half of our conversation with God that is so important but that can also be so difficult. How do we hear his voice? How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? What role does the Bible play? What if what God says to us is not clear? The key, says best-selling author Dallas Willard, is to focus not so much on individual actions and decisions as on building our personal relationship with our Creator. In this updated and expanded edition of Willard's beloved book, originally published as In Search of Guidance, you'll gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God's voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom. Including new material from Dallas Willard's teaching at the Renovaré Institute and reformatted to be even easier to read, this classic continues to endure as one of today's best resources for learning to listen closely to God.

Licensed clinical psychologist, intuitive counselor, and upcoming Bravo celebrity Carmen Harra shows readers the power of karma! When it comes to our interactions with family, friends, and the people we live with or work with, the drama can be overwhelming and confusing if we aren’t guided by love—the karmic cure for every hurt, rift, misunderstanding, conflict, and betrayal. In her new book Karma Queen: The Truth About Karma and Relationships, Carmen Harra draws upon her knowledge of psychology and metaphysics, her experience as a therapist and counselor, and her own relationships to help readers untangle the complexities of their relationships and get the most out of them. This book applies Carmen’s ideas to all types of relationships, because she firmly believes that karma affects every relationship in our lives—including whether we ever meet our soul mate. Rich in practical, solid advice, the book will also feature stories drawn from Carmen's new reality show and from her life.

A Powerful Process to Connect with the Divine Whether you think of God as a nebulous entity who exists only for other people, or you are a religious person hoping to deepen your faith, this groundbreaking book will guide you in developing and strengthening a personal relationship with a Higher Power. "I have met people who have^opened themselves to God with their whole hearts, but they still do not know how to personally experience God," explains author Margaret Paul, Ph.D., who has helped countless individuals fill their spiritual emptiness that left them anxious, depressed or feeling "stuck" in relationships or careers. Dr. Paul shows readers how to relinquish earthly love, which focuses on getting, and to embrace spiritual love, which focuses on giving. By so doing, readers will connect with the Divine by discover­ing their true creative, intelligent and forgiving self. Readers will explore their resistance to God; break down false beliefs about religion; eliminate the need to control God; heal self-destructive or addictive behaviors; and wel­come more love into their life. Most importantly, they will learn how to use spiritual power instead of power over others to manifest their dreams.

Life Is Never Mainly About Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More. Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now. If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.
