One in eight American couples will experience difficulty conceiving children, commonly referred to as infertility.

What often most surprises couples when they experience the unexpected trial of infertility is not the medical costs or procedures involved, but the collateral damage that infertility brings with it: the mental, emotional, marital, social, and spiritual damage that makes infertility not just a medical issue but a whole life issue.

Matt and his wife, Cheri, have experienced much of this collateral damage through four years of attempting to conceive a child. As the years have passed they have found, quite by accident, numerous other couples in similar situations. Although their doctors and treatment plans are different, the emotions of infertility are remarkably common among them. It is from these … Read More »

Have you taken the leap?

In the past, the world of work was one of full-time jobs, long careers at the same company, and a steady paycheck for those in the system. Now, the economy has radically changed. We are living in a world of part-time jobs, many career switches, and instability in our work.

College graduates are facing large student loans and high unemployment rates. Older generations who have been a part of the previous economy are feeling the effects of the recession as they lose stable jobs and are forced to find new work. The old economy is fading away and a new economy is rising in its place. To succeed in the new economy, we must take a mental leap, rethinking our strategies … Read More »

There is a gap between where we are and where we see ourselves in our biggest dreams.

This gap can seem insurmountable, overwhelming, and even impossible. But here’s the thing: God often gives us a unique message to share or a difficult problem to solve, and we just need a simple push in the right direction. Vision Map will help you take practical steps to see your vision come to pass based on a simple goal-writing plan.

A few years back, Joël Malm had the idea to start an organization that led people on outdoor expeditions (no big deal, just like climbing Mount Kilimanjaro!) with a spiritual, God-centered focus. Then he went out and did it: http://www.summitleaders.org/

This book is a response to the question he gets … Read More »

Are you compartmentalizing God?

If you ever feel like your times spent praying or trying to read the Bible are disconnected from the rest of your day, you need this book.

Devotions aren’t supposed to be isolated from your life; the God who created you also calls you to create—whether that is a business, a family, a book, a photograph, a website, a sermon, or a meal.

Created for More ties together our drive to create and our desire for God. Spend 30 days learning to be more than you thought you could be. Be humble. Be intentional. Be limited. Be a dancer. Be parallel. Be invested. Be brave.

Be a creator as you draw near to the God who created you.

Praise for Created for More

It didn’t take long for Tyler to realize he had no idea how to be married.

When Tyler and Analee got married, they read marriage books, learned about each other’s personality and habits, and exhausted three-step relational formulas. Yet a year and a half after their wedding, they had fallen into a pattern of fighting and unhappiness.

Tyler knew he and his wife needed more than formulas and counseling sessions. They needed a vision for marriage that extended beyond just finding happiness and falling in love. They wanted a vision that dealt with the realities of life and gave them a picture of marriage worth fighting for.

As a business professional who helps companies “rebrand” when their image doesn’t match up with … Read More »

What are you agreeing to when you say “I do”?

When a couple promises “I do,” they agree to more than just a shared last name, a joint bank account, and no more dateless nights. This husband and wife duo forms a new team. “Life together” becomes their mantra. Nothing can come between them. At least, that’s the plan.

But then real life sets in. With it come disappointments and frustrations. If the couple isn’t intentional in their day-to-day interactions, that once enthusiastic “we” can slowly revert to “you” and “me.” Before long, the couple’s left wondering what happened to their team spirit.

Team Us: Marriage Together offers couples practical ways to cultivate and strengthen unity in their marriages. Author Ashleigh Slater shares … Read More »

Will you tell the world what God is doing?

Whether we do ministry in a faraway country or a neighborhood nearby, we experience the work that God is doing in lives of people around the world. Yet when we try to communicate those stories to our friends at home, we often fall flat.

How can we share what God is doing in a way that evokes the excitement that He deserves?

To experienced journalist-turned-missionaries Jim Killam and Lincoln Brunner, the answer is straightforward: We need to be reporters—gathering information responsibly and crafting stories of God’s goodness.

The next time you are challenged to answer the question: “What happened on your missions trip?” or even: “What is happening in your ministry?”…be prepared to answer … Read More »

Celebrating the 5-year anniversary of Just Do Something

Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God’s will don’t work. It’s time to try something new: Give up.

Pastor and bestselling author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God’s people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven’t found God’s perfect will for their lives. Or—even worse—they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting… waiting… waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.

But God doesn’t need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He’s already revealed His plan for our lives: to love Him with … Read More »
