Are you tired? Are you weary?
So many Christian women are exhausted because we’ve come to believe that God’s purpose for us is rooted in what we do—which means we’re constantly striving to somehow do enough. But there is hope! Elizabeth takes us back to the gracious plan God laid out for us in Genesis: he created us to bear his image, he is inviting us to live out that purpose, and through Christ he frees us to flourish as those who are unconditionally loved.
“A breath of fresh air for any woman who feels exhausted from the try-harder-do-more pressures of life. . . . Writing with biblical wisdom and insight, Garn warmly invites women to rest in God as they faithfully fulfill their calling.”
—Melissa Kruger, Director of Women’s Initiatives, The Gospel Coalition
“Garn calls us to remember that the joy and fulfillment we seek cannot be uncoupled from our calling as God’s image-bearers. Offering readers a better story than traditionalist gender tropes or the try-harder-do-better mantras of secularism, she invites us into true freedom—the freedom of becoming our truest selves through Christ.”
—Hannah Anderson, Author, Made for More: An Invitation to Live in God’s Image
“Elizabeth Garn provides a compassionate and winsome voice for those struggling with their calling as Christian women. . . . Best of all, she reminds readers repeatedly that their worth in God’s sight comes not from their own efforts but as a gift from him.”
—David VanDrunen, Robert B. Strimple Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics, Westminster Seminary California
Does your happiness depend on someone else’s affection and presence in your life? Are your thoughts consumed by another person? If so, the relationship has become skewed—get help before it becomes a prison! Through thirty-one daily readings with reflection questions and practical action steps, Ellen Mary Dykas helps you to strengthen your relationship with Christ—embracing him as your true refuge—and to cultivate godly relationships with others from a place of confidence and peace.
“With a counselor’s wisdom and a friend’s sympathy, Dykas brings readers to passages of Scripture that . . . point again and again to the gracious comfort that can be found in Christ alone.”
—Megan Hill, Author, A Place to Belong
“Ellen speaks hopeful biblical truths to people who desire to be deeply known and loved yet find themselves hurt and empty in their relationships. Each devotional is filled with tender wisdom.”
—Darby A. Strickland, Author, Is It Abuse?
“For those who have been hurt, trapped, and betrayed by toxic relationships, Ellen gives way to neither despair nor dismissal but, like a gentle friend, guides us along a path of healing and restoration.”
—Jonathan D. Holmes, Founder and Executive Director, Fieldstone Counseling
To combat abuses in the church of his day, a young German monk drafted nearly one hundred propositions for public debate. Martin Luther posted these theses on the church door in Wittenberg, an action that helped to give birth to the Reformation.
Many people have heard of the Ninety-Five Theses, but few have read it. Yet it is a crucial text—a bold and stirring challenge to one of the largest political and ecclesiastical machines this world has ever seen. This complete reproduction includes an introduction and extensive annotations to explain the context and meaning of a short, simple work that changed the course of history.
