We’re all waiting for something. It might be a spouse or a baby. It might be healing or a home. Regardless of what we're waiting for, it’s easy to feel discontent when things aren’t going as planned and our dreams are delayed—especially when questions of “Why?” and “How long?” remain unanswered. God uses seasons of waiting to teach us patience and make us more like himself. But sanctification is not the only purpose God has in mind. When we wait faithfully with unmet longings, we become a powerful picture of the bride of Christ waiting for the day when he returns and God’s kingdom reigns.

In I Don't Wait Anymore, Grace Thornton challenges readers to find their calling and purpose from God and go after it with completely committed hearts--even if life isn't at all what they expected. Grace's writing focuses on defining herself as a child of God, not just by her marital status (or lack thereof). She grew up expecting to go to college, get married, have babies, and live out her life in one place, but that's not what God ended up calling her to. She still longs for a husband and children, but she has come to understand that God's plan is different for each of us and doesn't always take into account what we want, but rather what He needs for us. So she doesn't wait anymore or make plans based on her desires. Instead, she listens to God and follows His plan. Grace is a single woman in her early 30s with no children, and her professional career has taken her to strange and amazing places to spread God's Word and has opened her eyes to all she would have missed if she kept waiting. Many books on singleness focus on remaining pure and resisting temptation while waiting for your spouse. Grace takes that as a given and, instead, focuses on living for God joyfully regardless of whether or not she ever finds a spouse. This positive and encouraging gift book offers inspiration to young women and men who want to live a fulfilling life physically, emotionally, and spiritually, regardless of whether or not marriage or kids is in God's plan for them. Beyond simply dealing with singleness, Grace deals with identity, desperation, loneliness, frustration, and finding hope in darkness.

Nearly all Christians would affirm the centrality of prayer for a healthy Christian life. And yet, for many, prayer is often a challenge, requiring intense personal commitment and self-discipline. However, as Megan Hill points out in Praying Together, our normal approach to prayer leaves out a crucial component: other people. While personal prayer is important, God designed the church to be a community of believers who regularly pray together. Exploring the Bible’s rich teaching on what it means to gather at God’s throne with one voice, Hill lays a theological foundation for corporate prayer and offers practical guidance for making it a reality—in our families, churches, and communities.

Where's My Love Story? It's your third wedding this year. You are livening up the dance floor with a stirring rendition of "YMCA." Suddenly, the moment comes that separates the crowd like black and white socks. The Slow Dance. This one's in a pair, this one's not in a pair. You are not in a pair. You thought you would be married much sooner, but it hasn't worked out that way. "This is not the life I imagined," you whisper as you eat your wedding cake. This book was written with you in mind. Kate Hurley doesn't offer a magic formula that will bring your spouse to you, nor does she ask you to be content with your "gift" of singleness. She gives you permission to grieve your unmet expectations while opening your heart and life to unforeseen possibilities. Includes a Group Study Guide. The author is committed to giving twenty percent of her profits from this book to AIDchild (www.aidchild.org), an orphanage in Uganda for children living with AIDS, and iEmpathize (www.iempathize.org), an organization that fights to eradicate child exploitation.

Your Grace-Filled Guide to Relationships It's hard, sometimes, to get over that thing your husband said weeks ago; or to resolve that tension with your colleague at work; or to fix a lifelong friendship that's taken a bad turn. The biggest problem with relationships is they always seem to involve sinners--including ourselves. So how can we form strong, resilient bonds with people who, like us, are bound to mess up? Thankfully, it's not all on us. Through stories and biblical teaching, Jessica Thompson helps us move beyond trying to "fix" the people we interact with, and shows us a better way. Though our relationships may be marred by tension and frustration, because we are welcomed and known by Christ, they don't have to stay that way. "Nothing changes the way we relate to others more than knowing how God relates to us. Knowing how God loves us and forgives us and is gracious and merciful toward us and forbears with us inevitably affects the way we think about other people. My good friend Jessica Thompson has written a book that articulates who God is for us and then shows how that changes the way we are toward others. Thank you, Jessica, for reminding me that God always meets my mess with his mercy and my failure with his forgiveness. Knowing this makes me want to love God and others."--Tullian Tchividjian, founder of Liberate and author of One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World "We need grace in all our relationships. So much loneliness, feeling betrayed, alienation, anger, vengeance, sadness, grief find their roots in relational conflict. Jessica humbly guides us to see that only by being a recipient of God's grace can we be agents of grace in our relationships. She does this with humor, honesty, and confession from her own experience, not with advice as a relational guru."--Justin S. Holcomb, Episcopal priest, seminary professor, and author of On the Grace of God "Everyday Grace is for all who have struggled to accept their children and honor their parents and initiate with their neighbors and forgive their spouses and respect their bosses and celebrate their rivals. But it is not filled with practical tips that would trivialize the difficulty of these things. Nor is it a book of relational psychology that would strategize a resolution to these things. Instead, it is filled with the Scriptures that speak to these things--helping us to rest in Christ's covering of all our relational failure and inviting us to change by the power of the Holy Spirit."--Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher and author "Relational paradise was lost when our first parents fell into sin. Our desire for change in this area is anywhere between cautiously optimistic and downright cynical. What I enjoy about Everyday Grace is that Thompson simply cannot get over the one hope for true reconciliation: God, in Christ, has befriended us."--Gloria Furman, author of Glimpses of Grace and Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full "Relationships are hard. We know this. Jessica Thompson knows this too and shares how she fights to take her gaze off herself and onto the only one who can help our broken relationships--Jesus. Her method doesn't come from a list of ways to implement change; rather, she focuses on the gospel that transforms hearts and minds. Be encouraged by the good news as you read Everyday Grace, for it is the gospel that is our only Hope for our relationship problem."--Trillia Newbell, author of Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves and United: Captured by God's Vision for Diversity
