Our gifts and talents can make a way for us to be a great witness to many.

Finding God in the Dark by Ted Kluck & Ronnie Martin
An Honest, Hopeful Look at Christian Doubt and Disappointment
Doubt often has less to do with the head than the heart. When Christians go through trials–from unmet personal expectations to the death of a loved one–they often feel like God has abandoned them, or maybe he never cared at all. Kluck and Martin walk readers through dark times in their own lives to reveal a God of love who never forsakes his children. Here is grace and hope for any believer struggling to believe.

If there is an area of your life that seems out of control, these messages of truth will help you develop the restraint you need to experience victory in every area of your life.
How can I know God’s will for my life? Should I expect God to reveal it to me mystically, or has He already revealed His wisdom in Scripture, which enables me to be wise in my decision making? What faulty methods should I avoid in making decisions, and how can I apply biblical wisdom? Far too many have been paralyzed with indecision because they are looking for a mystical inside track to a new revelation from God. In Free to Be Wise: A Guide to Biblical Decision Making, Kirk Youngblood explains how you can avoid the common pitfalls of using a mystical approach to biblical decision making. You will be liberated to follow the wisdom God has already revealed in His Word. Youngblood has thoroughly researched this topic and explains the mysticism versus wisdom paths to learning God’s will for your life in a clear and easy-to-understand manner.
