Glansaktrise Nadia Beukes nooi jou saam op die paaie wat sy al geloop het: kronkelpaaie, bergpasse, en soms ook ompaaie. So leer ken ons die ware Nadia weg van die kalklig. Sy deel haar verhaal van diepe hartseer, maar ook van uitbundige vreugde. Ons almal se paaie lyk nie dieselfde nie. Net omdat jou pad anders is, beteken dit nie daar wag nie ’n gelukkige einde nie.
God designed our bodies to be healthy, providing everything we need to thrive and live abundantly. And with assistance from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick Warren and thousands of people from his congregation at Saddleback Church started a journey to transform their lives. The result: 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. But the changes in people's lives went far beyond the pounds they lost.
The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life by Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen, and Dr. Mark Hyman is far more than a diet plan. It is an appetizing approach to achieving a healthy lifestyle where people are encouraged to get healthier together by optimizing the key five essentials of faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends. Unlike thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet fad, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. Nor is it a "do it all now" approach. The Daniel Plan shows you how focusing on the powerful combination of the key essentials can change your life forever... one choice at a time.
The concepts in this book will encourage you to deepen your relationship with God and develop a community of supportive friends who will encourage you to make healthy choices each and every day. The result for you: gradual changes that transform your life inside and out.
Most parents have at least one youngster who seems to be born with a clear idea of how he wants the world to be operated, the so-called “strong-willed child”.
Temper Your Child's Tantrums by New York Times best-selling author and parenting expert Dr James Dobson deals particularly with the subject of discipline as it relates to the strong-willed child. He provides practical advice and suggestions to parents who may be faced with the challenge of raising such a child.
A Question and Answer section is also included where Dr Dobson answers common questions from concerned parents about raising their strong-willed children.
558 days of hell. Two souls intertwined in body and spirit. One Almighty God. This is the true story of kidnapping victims Yolande and Pierre Korkie, as told by Yolande. Pierre never survived to tell the tale.
In this raw and honest memoir, Yolande relives the couple's kidnapping and brutal severance from their children and life as they knew it. From the moment they were kidnapped in 2013 until Yolande's release and through to Pierre's failed rescue attempt by U.S. military forces, 558 Days recounts the Korkies' horrific ordeal.
This is the true story of a level of love that few couples will ever experience; of faith that grows stronger through adversity and of forgiveness that is more powerful than human boundaries. This is the story of 558 Days.
In this trade adaptation of Sally Lloyd-Jones’ bestselling Jesus Storybook Bible, readers can explore how God’s incredible story centers around his most amazing gift, Jesus.
Teens and adults will have their own glimpse of God’s amazing, Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.
Stormie Omartian's bestselling books on the power of prayer have touched millions of lives. Recent books have taken a closer look at the leading of the Holy Spirit and the call to be a prayer warrior for God. Now Stormie takes a fresh look at another powerful aspect of knowing our Creator... His amazing and great love for us.
We reflect God most clearly when we are motivated by the power of love in all we say and do. But first we have to understand the depth of God's love for us and receive it. Then we must learn how to effectively express our love for Him. "One of the many ways we can show our love to God is to deliberately choose to show love to others and in every situation," says Stormie. "We can only accomplish this with the guidance and enablement of the Holy Spirit. When we do that, God blesses us and transforms our lives in ways we cannot even imagine. And we will have a sense of God's pleasure toward us that is far more valuable than anything else we may desire. This book is about making that sometimes difficult choice and the rewards that follow."
Transform your heart, your relationships, and your future as you press into God's love and let the power of His life and character move through you.

Jordan Rubin is a renowned natural health expert and NYT Best-selling author of The Maker's Diet.
Trained as a midwife, Chrissie Chapman went to Burundi in the nineties to open a maternity clinic and dispensary in a rural area of the country. She had been there just three years when a coup was declared, and the country descended into a state of civil war. It lasted for thirteen long years. During that time, God directed her to work with the orphans and widows.
She started a centre for abandoned babies and traumatised children and saw the Lord performing remarkable miracles in the lives of people who had lost everything. Chrissie adopted three children herself, and has raised more than fifty others to young adulthood. Again and again she has witnessed miracles of protection and provision. When the war started, Chrissie, her adopted children, and the health staff were living in a rural location on top of a mountain, in a healing centre, with maternity clinic and dispensary. Every night there was gunfire, and every day people would come seeking refuge. One night, she and David Ndarahutse, the mission director, were sitting praying amid the fighting, when David said, "Chrissie, look up." There were dozens of angels standing on top of the walls of the healing centre. That was the night the angels came.
"From that moment on," Chrissie records, "I have never experienced or felt fear for my life." Today Chrissie divides her time between Burundi, where she continues to care for the teenagers in her charge, and England, Canada and America, where she speaks widely about the faithfulness and power of God.
Sometimes the big and small decisions in life seem overwhelming. How do you know what choices to make about your career, kids, and relationships? Even when you make good decisions, how do you avoid temptation along the way?
In this in-depth look at the book of James, Dr. David Jeremiah offers stories and biblical insights about what to do:
In What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do, renowned Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah walks you through the book of James to glean God’s wisdom on issues such as finances, faith, and decision making. What does it look like to consider God in all of your plans, depend on God rather than wealth, and put prayer above your personal efforts? Learn how to receive God’s supernatural strength to meet the challenges you face. As James learned, the road of spiritual wisdom always leads to joy.
To be diagnosed with dementia is "like being blindfolded and let loose in a maze". There is no clear treatment to follow, because each case is unique. But once thickets of misunderstanding and misinformation are brushed aside, there are pathways to hope.
"Secular models of support don't adequately reflect Christian values of compassion, love and service," explains Louise Morse. "Neither do they describe the power of spiritual support. This is key to the wellbeing of the caregiver, as well as the person with dementia."
This book is packed with examples of what works, as well as practical advice and accessible medical information. Louise Morse is a cognitive behavioural therapist and works with a national charity whose clients include people with dementia. Her MA dissertation, based on hundreds of interviews, examined the effects on families of caring for a loved one with dementia.
His street name was Daylight. But he was a nightmare.
On the streets of New York, darkness and violence reigned. Dimas “Daylight” Salaberrios popped his first pill when he was eleven years old, and just days later, he was selling drugs to his schoolmates. By fifteen, he was facing time at the notorious Rikers Island Prison. It was never safe to turn your back, and Dimas saw only one chance to survive: to become a street god. He would be the richest, most powerful ruler in the hood . . . or die trying.
But in one terrifying moment, with a gun pointed at his head, Dimas had to decide: How far would he go? Was he finished taking reckless chances to rule as a god of the streets? Would he dare to entrust his life to the real God―an even riskier path? Because that God would send Dimas back down the darkest streets he’d ever known on a rescue mission after those still in danger.
Street God is the true story of one man’s against-all-odds journey from the streets to the altar and back again. A modern-day The Cross and the Switchblade for a new generation, it reveals that we’re never too far gone for God to change us―and shows how a single spark can illuminate even the darkest existence.
Exciting new teaching from bestselling author and Bethel Church leader Bill Johnson.
Two realities are evident in today's broken world: Our culture is in desperate need, and our God is a miracle-working God. How do believers answer the world's cries for help in a way that exhibits God's heart of compassion?
According to bestselling author Bill Johnson, we simply embrace two additional realities: God's wisdom and his power. With Biblical insight and extensive experience of seeing God's hand at work, Johnson offers keys to how believers can have the greatest impact on society. When we understand the long-term strategy of God's wisdom and the immediacy of his miracle-working power, we can create eternal impact and significance in the here and now, whether in our own lives and communities or in the farthest reaches of the world.
Everyone experiences times of sadness, trials, and pain. But what happens when grief and depression seem so overwhelming that we feel like giving up?

Uit die Beek, die geliefde Afrikaanse Bybeldagboek, kom vanjaar uit die pen van die bekroonde skrywer Barend Vos. Die tekskeuses vir elke dag is grootliks op die Revised Common Lectionary (oftewel die RCL-leesrooster) gebaseer. Dit maak hierdie tydlose Bybelse dagboek weer opnuut geskik vir persoonlike stiltetyd, vir huisgodsdiens en Bybelstudiegroepe. Mag hierdie jaar vir jou ’n besondere tyd van geestelike groei wees, sodat jy die Here sal leer ken soos Hy werklik is.
Women everywhere marvel at those "good girls" in Scripture - Sarah, Mary, Esther - but on most days, that's not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they're honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch a glimpse of Jezebel's take-charge pride or Eve's disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today's modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.
So what's a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved humor writer Liz Curtis Higgs, and by God's grace, choose a better path. In Bad Girls Of The Bible, Higgs offers a unique and clear-sighted approach to understanding those "other women" in Scripture, combining a contemporary retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of their mistakes and what lessons women today can learn from them.
Whether they were "Bad to the Bone," "Bad for a Season, but Not Forever" or only "Bad for a Moment," these infamous sisters show women how "not" to handle the challenges of life. With her trademark humor and encouragement, Liz Curtis Higgs teaches us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.
Almost anyone you ask would say that they want to do work that matters. Yet many people do not feel like they are actively making a difference in the world. Others may feel a sense of calling but lack either the courage or the supportive community to carry it out. But if God created each of us on purpose, for a purpose, we should be ordering our lives around that purpose.
Jonathan D. Golden, founder of Land of a Thousand Hills coffee company, has discovered and is living out his unique calling to promote social, spiritual, and economic justice while providing a living wage to 2,500 farmers in Rwanda. Now he reveals to readers how to identify their calling, dispels the myths and misunderstandings we often have about what constitutes a calling, and challenges them to pursue that calling with a courage that can surmount the many obstacles that may lie in their path. He also shows readers how to cultivate a community of support that will help them fulfill their calling.
For anyone who is dissatisfied with the work they are doing, just entering the workforce, or wondering what more is out there, this book reveals how to embrace the meaningful life they were meant to live.
Defining Moments is a fascinating look at the remarkable ways in which God has used ordinary people to change history. But it is more than just history—it unveils the future.
Prophetic in nature, the book reveals what God wants to do in each of our lives to fulfill His purposes—today, tomorrow, and in the years to come. The stories in this collection of God–encounters carry a prophetic anointing for all who have ears to hear. Author Bill Johnson highlights significant traits and contributions of well–known leaders like John Wesley, Charles Finney, Dwight Moody, Maria Woodworth–Etter, Carrie Judd Montgomery, Smith Wigglesworth, John G. Lake, Evan Roberts, Rees Howells, Aimee Semple McPherson, Kathryn Kuhlman, Randy Clark, and Heidi Baker, explaining the impact these leaders can have on us today as we respond to the life–changing truths revealed through their lives.
There is power in knowing the testimonies of others–men and women who experienced God in a defining moment and said yes to His unique call on their lives. It is a power that inspires us to hunger for God in such a way that we, too, have an encounter with Him that launches us into the world of the "impossible," enabling us to fulfill a greater measure of our destiny. What will be your defining moment?
Gesinne is die belangrikste eenheid wat God daargestel het. God het pa’s gemaak om die priester, profeet en koning van die huis te wees en ’n voorbeeld vir hulle seuns te wees.
Angus Buchan moedig pa’s in Pa's & Seuns aan om die verhouding met hulle seuns te slyp, te beskerm en te koester. Die boek moedig terselfdertyd ook seuns aan om hul verhouding met hulle pa te koester en so een van dié belangrikste gesinsbande te versterk.
Temas wat in Pa's & Seuns bespreek word, sluit in: ’n pa se aanvaarding, rolmodelle, genade en respek, nederigheid teenoor hoogmoed, op- offering, wat maak iemand ’n pa en onversetlike liefde.
Pa's & Seuns sal elke pa oortuig om die pa te wees wat God wil hê hy moet wees en wys watter ongelooflike impak dit op sy kinders sal hê.
Regardt se lewe het glad nie naby God begin het nie, maar hy het beslis die pad na Hom gevind. Hy vertel van sy vroegste kinderjare in Bez Valley tot die punt waar sy lewe op die kruin van sy loopbaan, ná ’n onverskillige lewe met drank en ’n vergeefse soeke na ’n dieper sin, heeltemal uitmekaarval. Hy het sy gesin en huis verloor, maar een oggend met ’n babelaas en trane wat oor sy wange loop ’n onvergeetlike ontmoeting met God gehad wat sy hele lewe vir goed verander het.
Regardt is die merkwaardige verhaal van ’n man wat nooit sy passie vir die lewe en vir rolprente verloor het nie, maar wat op ’n swaar manier moes leer dat toewyding en gehoorsaamheid aan God die vreugde en sin bring wat hom opgewonde maak oor sy lewe. Vandag is hy gelukkig getroud met Clara Joubert.
Die lig van die silwerdoek skyn weer op hom en oor sy lewe sê hy met oortuiging: “Dis nie luck nie – net genade.”
In 1984 Roger Sawtell and his wife Susan and another couple decided to form a residential Christian community - a community of households living under one roof - by combining two neighbouring houses on a suburban street in Northampton. The Neighbours Community grew to encompass four neighbouring houses and was a home to more than 50 people over the course of 23 years.
The members lived in simple Christian fellowship according to New Testament principles and shared their home with people who had particular need for support, particularly those with mental health difficulties.
Under One Roof is a unique and inspiring book which tells the story of The Neighbours Community and - as a guide for others interested in the principles of living in community - looks at the wider world movement of communities and new monasticism, with examples such as the Iona Community, L'Arche, Taize and Quaker communities.
Most of us have felt it: that unexplained prompting in our hearts to stop and pray for a friend, a loved one, or even a stranger. Sometimes we dismiss the feeling as a stray thought about friends, families, or situations. Sometimes we are even awakened from a deep sleep with an even deeper need to go to God in prayer.
Where do those urges come from? Are they truly from God? And do those prayers have any effect on the one we're praying for?
In Called To Pray, Linda Evans Shepherd shares dozens of inspiring true stories of people who have felt God's call to pray - and the astonishing results of those impromptu prayers. For those who wonder if prayer has any effect or doubt that God communicates with us personally, this heart-stirring book will amaze, inspire, and equip them to respond to those holy promptings.
Next to God, a family is the most important relationship a person can possibly have in this life. The Lord never designed us to be on our own. We need each other, just like iron sharpens iron, just like coal needs fire in order to burn brightly.
Fathers & Sons is a call to fathers to guard their relationship with their sons, and for sons to treasure their relationship with their father – with passion and purpose.
Some of the themes Angus Buchan discusses in Fathers & Sons includes: Dad’s affirmation, role models, grace and respect, humility versus pride, sacrifice, what constitutes a father and tough love.
Fathers & Sons will encourage every father to be the father that God wants him to be and reveals the incredible impact it will have on his children.
