Redemption Inc. depicts compelling true accounts of broken people facing overwhelming circumstances who ultimately found freedom, overcame obstacles, then regained their lives and self-respect through second chances. The book chronicles persons from many different backgrounds who had a common experience: they had failed in some way or were facing a life controlling problem. They needed help overcoming that problem, and God used an agency or coach or some level of support to help them turn their lives around.
Redemption Inc. shares the journeys of individuals who have had their productive lives taken from them; but then through a process of redemption and restoration, were given an opportunity to start fresh. When these individuals seek and find help through freedom and restoration, they then need the possibility for re-employment and a fresh start. This is an opportunity for businesses to complete the cycle by providing employment for these redeemed persons to pursue their gifts and calling. While it is not always smooth sailing, and may require some additional job readiness skills, the reward is great loyalty, commitment, and appreciation by those given the second chance.

Why does the Bible compare salvation to birth? Jesus referred to salvation as being “born again” when He was teaching Nicodemus. The Lord helps us understand spiritual rebirth by comparing it to physical birth. Conception, pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and the newborn all have parallels in the spiritual transformation of being born again. This unique Christian devotional explores the truths of this beautiful analogy in 40 devotions. This devotional is a blessing not only to expecting parents but also to others who want a deeper scriptural understanding of the New Birth. Each devotion has a thought of the day to give you inspirations for prayer, spiritual growth, and practical information for childbirth preparation from a Certified Nurse-Midwife. Full-color illustrations make this devotional a lovely keepsake.

Why God? Why? It’s a question we often ask Him. Why did I lose my job? Why does my mom have Alzheimer’s? Why is my friend having to deal with this sickness? Why do bad things happen to good people? Why is there so much suffering in the world? These are some of the questions that I have asked God. I’m sure you have similar questions that you have asked Him. Why?
We have all these questions for God, but do we ever consider the questions that He asks us? Maybe the reason He doesn’t answer us is because we haven’t bothered to answer Him. He has been asking questions since before we existed. And His questions demand an answer.
Brace yourself; I will question you, and you shall answer me. Job 38:3 NIV
There is much that we learn when we answer God’s questions. His queries not only reveal who we are. If we are brave enough to be laid bare before the Lord and answer His questions, we will have the added benefit of gaining a better understanding of His nature and who He is. We will also get a better grasp of who we are in Him. And in one of those mysteries of God, if we will spend time considering and answering His question, many of our questions about Him will be answered. Are you willing to be questioned by God?

How did Joseph do it?
For 13 years the circumstances of his life went from bad to worse. Slave. Alleged rapist. Prison convict. He did nothing to deserve such rough treatment. Yet Joseph never whined or complained. He didn’t get angry or depressed. In fact, when he had the chance to take revenge, he chose mercy, grace, and generosity instead.
How did he do it?
You’ll find answers in 30 Days with Joseph, the second in an expanding series of devotionals written to examine how Bible characters navigated the challenges of their spiritual journey. Each day of the month, you’ll accompany Joseph and be inspired by a faith firmly rooted in the God who is in total control of everything, is always on time (though it doesn’t seem like it to us), and always keeps his word.
From Joseph’s story, you’ll learn how to overcome the challenges you encounter along the way… even when God doesn’t ride to your rescue right away.
“Jesus and Zinnias Make Me Smile” is a collection of gardening memories and the ah-ha moments from God that took root and blossomed in my heart, soul, and mind. Much like seeds do when I put them in the soil, they blossomed into life lessons I felt led to share because they can help each of us grow into the person God desires us to be, and ultilmately more like the Master Gardener–our Savior, Jesus.
