‘Growing in Godliness: Journeying with Christ’ is an inspirational book that will help Christians, as well as anyone else, to know Jesus Christ more and establish a personal relationship with Him. This book hopes to help people understand how to grow in godliness and help them in their everyday lives with Christ. This book contains situations from my life and how I was (and still am) able to overcome them with God holding my hand throughout life’s journeys and storms. I pray this book inspires you! I know how difficult it can be walking this journey, it is a narrow path, it can be hard but let’s concentrate on the end result, it leads to life (Matthew 7:13). Things (as in ungodliness, addictions, struggles etc.) may seem hard to stop or get out of, even impossible, but once the Holy Spirit comes upon you, the things of the world you used to love, you will love no more! But we must repent and trust in Jesus Christ! Ask God for His wonderful spirit to live and dwell inside of you. I pray for us all that we will become who God created us to be, to please Him, as we go through life with Him.

Once you come to know Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, what is the next step? If you have been a believer for a while and want to grow further, what is the next step? If you have grown in your faith and want to learn how to help other believers grow in theirs, what is the next step? This book will begin to answer these important questions. In Peter's second letter to scattered believers, he challenges us to add seven character qualities to our faith that will help us grow to be more like Christ. The Next Step looks at these seven character qualities, along with God's corresponding attributes, to help us grow in these qualities as we grow in our understanding of God's character. In every chapter, Johnson introduces readers to prayer, grace, and practical ways to begin reaching out to the people God places in our lives. The Next Step will help you grow in your daily walk with the Lord and will launch you on a lifelong journey of investing in others to help them walk with Christ.

Can your ultimate desire ever be fulfilled? Everywhere you look, every time you listen, with each click and tap, there's something you desire. How do you know if what you desire will satisfy, or if you are seeing a "desire mirage"? The global village presents countless ways to connect to all kinds of information. We think we can scarcely live without these connections. Do we realize, however, that these connections often block or slow down connections to God, self, and others? Divided Desire is a journey along the road of desire--a road everyone travels. Along the journey, Kenny Damara explores why we desire what we desire in the global village today. What role does God have in fulfilling the ultimate desire of the heart? And how should we respond?

Most Christians think their minds will automatically cooperate with them in their walk as Christians. However, this isn’t true. The mind must be brought under subjection to the spirit of the living God for this to happen. The book you are holding will help you with this process. It lays out practical applications for using the Bible for the purpose of renewing the mind and making it your friend. We must, with our minds, love God and purpose to serve Him. We must also come to the place where we understand we have been self-serving. Only the teaching of the Bible will bring this to fruition in the mind of the believer. That is what MAKE YOUR MIND YOUR FRIEND is all about. The author used the principles laid out in this book with life-changing results both in ministry and his personal life. As you apply what is taught in this book to your life, you may begin to experience new levels of freedom in your mind. Some of the principles set forth you may or may not know, however it is all supported by Scriptures. As you take this journey, keep a God-centered mindset, and you will be blessed.
