Equipping You To Better Manage God's Money

Managing God's Money
My husband and I have always been fans of Randy Alcorn and his writings. His topics focus on questions that Christians frequently ask, but rarely are able to find bible answers. This new book "Managing God's Money" is a  wonderful question - answer book by Alcorn about anything having to do with money. This book is written in a question and answer format with all of the questions under a similar topic grouped together. There are 6 different sections in this book, 22 chapters, and over 100 questions answered. Topics include "Tithing: The Training Wheels of Giving," "Materialism, Ten Fatal Dangers," and "Looking For Returns: Gambling and Investing." There isn't a question about money that I believe Randy Acorn doesn't address in this book. When we first received this book, I laid it aside in our office for a couple of days only to have my husband come to me a few hours later exclaiming "This book answered the question I've always struggled with and never had an answer to." He was referring to saving money for retirement. I would highly recommend this book to all Christians! I would also encourage anyone seeking scripture and books in regards to money to also check our Randy Alcorn's book "The Treasure Principle."

It's Not About Me

I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest Lucado fan because I tend to think that his books are only surface deep and I tend to want something more challenging in my walk with Christ. With that being said, I have wanted to read "It's Not About Me" for quite some time. This hardback edition focuses on how our life is really not about us. I've heard that so often before in the church, "that's its not about me," and yet somehow I go through my day without ever focusing on Christ or others. This short, easy read will help refocus your thoughts and heart as you are reminded that this life is not about you, but rather the one you were created by. I would recommend this book!

Every Single Woman's Battle

I have been married for a year now, but only being away from the single life for a year now, I remember the struggle to remain emotionally and physically pure. This book, or handbook rather, assists single women in keeping their heart for Christ and their future husband. This handbook contains quote from Shannon's book"Every Woman's Battle," as well as questions and thoughts for the reader and small groups. I will definitely keep this book on hand to use and mentor younger single women! This book would be great for anyone working with college aged girls!
