Transformation captivates a world hungry for change. Transformation looks like hearts cracking open to God’s touch, reconciliation in relationships, and the restoration of broken character. It is powerful to heal both within the church and the community, and our need for it today is great. But transformation like this doesn’t happen casually. Christian leaders are called to lead transformation within themselves and others but often do not understand the fundamental nature of how change really happens in the heart. Like throwing good seed onto poor soil, leaders miss the groundwork needed to produce genuine change. Authors Scott Larson and Daniel L. Tocchini have spent their lives learning how to do this groundwork. Through a combination of storytelling, research, and methods garnered from years of practice, the authors share their experiences of leading transformation within ministry and business. In Groundwork they invite leaders and ministry professionals to learn from both the authors’ mistakes and achievements and to put into practice the knowledge of what works and what impedes true change. Jesus taught that the seeds of God’s transformative power are freely sown; let’s do the groundwork so God’s seeds land on good soil and bear the fruit of hope and healing.

A powerful message of hope for anyone burdened by regret and everyone who longs for a fresh start. What if I told you that you and your not-so-perfect story have been invited to experience the joy of second chance living. Your critics and nay-sayers and those negative voices in your head have defined who you are and stolen your hopeful future for far too long! The insecurity, shame, and judgment—That stops today. This simple guide will show you how your imperfect life matters in ways you never thought possible. It will help you see your scars, flaws, and failures as unfair advantages and gifts that you can bring to the world. Foster's examination of hope is one part challenge, two parts encouragement.

Each question is broken down into core concepts that are essential to a life devoted to the power of second chances: awareness, discovery, ownership, forgiveness, acceptance and freedom. Packed full of unfiltered honesty and simple next steps, this manifesto for prodigals, imperfectionists, and hopesters will help you discover beauty in the brokenness.

Veteran marriage coach Daniel L. Tocchini doesn't want to improve marriages. He wants to transform them. Drawing on personal experience and stories from couples he has coached, he offers practical guidance to move couples beyond communication tricks and gimmicks to help them truly understand "Us" for the first time—talking honestly, listening generously, tackling tricky issues, breaking out of ruts, and abandoning self-centered "consumer thinking." Innovative, insightful, and thoroughly biblical, Tocchini's approach has helped thousands in his popular seminars. Whether a marriage is in deep trouble or just coasting along, it's time for Christian couples to read the User's Guide that God intended.
The authors provide a spiritual journey for those who may have given up on Church, but not on God.
Deepen your relationship with God as you discover your God-given gift of creativity. Creativity is usually defined narrowly and associated only with artists or children. "Creativity is so much more than art making," writes Kincannon. "It is a tool for navigating through everyday experiences to find the sacred in each God-given moment. Those who believe they lack creativity have relegated it to remote regions of their life, burying it under the need for security, approval, and control. However,…creativity does not die; it simply waits to be unearthed and set free." Creativity and Divine Surprise couples insightful meditations with thoughtful exercises that will help you celebrate your divine spark and connect with God. Can't draw a straight line? Color-blind? No worries. If you yearn for God and desire greater awareness of God's presence in your life, you're ready for this book. Through Kincannon's words, you'll see creativity as a source of revelation, joy, healing, and fulfillment, and we all need those things. Ready to dance, draw, paint, take pictures—masterpieces or not? Let the Creator work in you through your creativity, so that you become God's masterpiece.
THE following Treatise presents, at first sight, considerable difficulties. They do not arise from any defect in the Saint’s mode of expression, but are inherent in his subject and manner of treatment, “going deep down into the roots” of the Love of God. Thus he speaks in his Preface, and continues: “The first four books, and some chapters of the others might doubtless have been omitted without disadvantage to such souls as seek only the practice of holy love. . . . I have been forced to say many things which will appear more obscure than they are. The depths of science are always somewhat hard to sound.” But he tells us that the state of the minds of his age required this deeper treatment; and whatever may be thought as to the best way of presenting modern religious teaching to an age so ignorant, so shallow and so unthinking as is our own with regard to spiritual truths, there can be no question that this masterpiece of the chief doctor of ascetic theology must not be brought down to our level, but that we must raise ourselves towards it.
