War Room

Wednesday, August 26, 2015


An extraordinary true story of grace, mercy, and the redemptive power of God.

When her father was murdered, Laurie Coombs and her family sought justice—and found it. Yet, despite the swift punishment of the killer, Laurie found herself increasingly full of pain, bitterness, and anger she couldn’t control. It was the call to love and forgive her father’s murderer that set her, the murderer, and several other inmates on the journey that would truly change their lives forever. This compelling story of transformation will touch the deepest wounds and show how God can redeem what seems unredeemable.

REAL FOOD For Rookies by Kelly Moeggenborg

Not long ago, I didn't have a clue about the critical need to feed my family real food or how others made it look so easy. I didn't know how to find the time, what to buy, how to afford it, how to cook it, or even how to get them to like it. With all the different "experts" making so many different claims, the whole thing seemed like it was just too much to figure out. For a long time I struggled, researched, de-conflicted the claims of the so-called "experts", and wondered "How in the world do people make this looks so easy?" Today, I know how much real food matters. Now I know that it's worth the time to learn and make the necessary changes that result in a healthier, happier life.
Do you want kids who behave and learn well? Are you ready to finally feel good again and go off your medications? Do you want to avoid chronic diseases like cancer, obesity, and diabetes that have afflicted so many of our loved ones?

FERVENT by Priscilla Shirer - Review and GIVEAWAY

You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted.

Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit.

New York Times bestselling author Priscilla Shirer, widely known for her international speaking, teaching, and writing ministries, brings her new role from the 2015 film War Room into the real lives of today’s women, addressing the topics that affect them most: renewing their passion, refocusing their identity, negotiating family strife, dealing with relentless regrets, navigating impossible schedules, succeeding against

Peter's Perfect Prayer Place and *GIVEAWAY* - Ended

Winner - Alisha H.
Can you help Peter find the perfect place to pray?
Peter is used to seeing his mom pray in her special prayer room, and now you can help him search for his own place to pray—Peter’s perfect prayer place. Is it under his bed? Up in his tree house? Between the pots and pans? Where can God hear him best? There’s lots of fun as Peter looks and looks, but in the end, he learns that although it’s great to have a special place to be alone with God and pray, God hears you no matter where you are—under, up, or in between!
This companion book to the movie War Room will teach young readers an important lesson about talking to God. And the fold-out prayer chart and stickers in the back of the book will let them track their prayers as well as God’s answers!
