In Heart Made Whole, Christa Black Gifford shares her own stories of loss, betrayal, and personal tragedy, chronicling clear steps to redemption to help those in pain invite the true Healer into the tangled mess of their broken hearts. Gifford reminds readers that pain is not their enemy, however, unhealed pain can become their greatest foe if it’s not taken to Jesus. Growing up as a preacher's kid, Gifford had been submerged in Christian culture for decades when she uncovered the truth--that there were broken parts of her heart that weren't on friendly terms with the God who lived inside. Through disappointments and traumas, she had learned to guard her heart from God, keeping her angry, entrapped, and disconnected. As struggles and hardships continued, she finally learned to run towards her relationship with God when things got hard, instead of running away from Him like she had in the past. The more that she did this--building her heart's capacity for intimacy and deep relationship--the more her heart began to heal from the inside-out. She teaches the reader to access the solution that's already living inside of them--the God who forever made their heart a home. When trials and tragedy hit our lives in a fallen world, our hearts can get smashed to bits, and we end up putting God on trial and blaming Him for the mess. But Christa helps readers understand that they don’t have to live controlled by their circumstances – or angry with God. Instead, she provides powerful insight and practical steps to turn the painful fire that comes to destroy us into an unexpected friend that can produce our greatest healing. The condition of the heart determines the condition of life—and the heart can be bound up and healed, producing freedom and abundant life. With personal workbook sections for each chapter Christa helps readers experience steps to turn their pain into the healing and wholeness available to every believer.

Whenever Christa Black looked in the mirror, she was waging a war with herself. Her hatred of her face and body drove her, as a young woman, into frantic overachievement, addiction, and an eating disorder that landed her in rehab. A preacher's kid, she'd grown up imagining God as a "thou shalt not" tyrant. It was only when she miraculously discovered God's unconditional love for her--physical imperfections, moral failings, and all--that she finally began to accept herself. As she tells her story, Christa shares the tools she uses to combat the self-rejection that harms so many people's lives. In this raw testimony, Christa Black takes women on a step-by-step journey of faith and positive belief to reveal that if God loves ugly, then we can too.

You were born to make an impact in this world and you know it. You feel it deep down in your bones. Apathy is your nemesis and your hunger to change the world keeps you up at night. But no matter how deep this hunger growls, we can only make a meaningful impact if we are rooted in Jesus. And here’s the thing: God is not interested in developing your vision first. He is interested in developing you. In Rooted, Banning Liebscher takes us to the life of David to show how God expands our root system in the hidden places before leading us to where we all desire to go, the visible world. It was in a field of prayerful devotion, a season of serving, and a cave of community that God prepared David for his crown, the same way God prepares us. Take a look at your own life. Are you embracing God’s process, the sometimes painstaking and maddening process? When we can release ourselves to God we will find that we can thrive while He develops us, rather than succumb to discouragement. Whatever your age or season of life, it takes immense courage to slow down enough to let God grow a root system in your life so that you can bear fruit that remains. You are where you are because God has planted you there. Discover what it looks like to embrace His process so you can do what He has called you to, change the world.

When life gets hard, it's tempting to get stuck in our questions. "Why did this happen to me? Why does it have to be this way?" But as Alyssa Quilala learned after losing a child, the important questions are not the ones we're asking, but the ones being asked of us: "What are you going to do? How will you respond?" The way we respond to these questions today will determine our future. Responding well is how we mend tomorrow."

Why don't we talk about God's maternal love? Searching for answers, Trudy Beyak, an award-winning journalist, interviewed 50 global leaders of faith: Ruth Graham, Ravi Zacharias, Raymond Damadian, MRI inventor; J.I. Packer, editor, ESV Bible; Gary Chapman, Tony Campolo, Luci Swindoll, Brennan Manning, Pope Benedict XV1 and many others. Ruth Graham says this: "When God created men and women to be like Him, women are half the picture." And, Ravi Zacharias agrees, because, according to the Bible, they reflect the "maternal personality of God's love." When no one cares, and you're all alone, God comes close and comforts your soul, as a mother comforts a child [Isaiah 66:13]. What a gift, then, it is to be a mother! The "maternal instinct" to nurture others -corresponds to the Creator, the God of all comfort. Women will no longer need to ask: Dear Lord: Who am I? Discover "50 exclusive interviews" that will transform a woman's life. And there's much more. The Mother Heart of God is a spiritual journey, a personal invitation to every man and woman to experience the love that brings hope and healing to every soul.
