✏God s Creative Gift Unleashing the Artist in You Book Summary : God's Creative Gift is an in-depth study for the creative Christian. It is intended for both professional and lay artists, for the casual crafter and hobbyist, and for those in both sacred and secular settings. It is for those who see things where others do not and for those whose imaginations cannot be confined by religious dogma and tradition. It is for musicians, singers, painters, sculptors, dancers, dramatists, writers, poets, carvers, weavers, film editors, photographers, filmmakers, architects, designers--anyone who finds inspiration in creativity. Focusing on the creative spirit within, it is designed to help you draw your inspiration from a Deeper Source. It is deeply rooted in Scripture--for the creative Christian must enter into the Word of God on a regular basis in order to know the choreographer of her steps, the crafter of her designs, the author and perfecter of her faith, and the sculptor of her creative heart, soul, mind, and body. And to know Him intimately.

✏The Rooted Life Book Summary : To thrive spiritually we need to learn from the trees. Each part of the tree, its roots, trunk, branches, leaves, and seeds, gives valuable insights into the Christian life. The roots, which are critical to the tree’s health and invisible to the naked eye, refer to the need to develop the inner life of the Christian. The root system shared among neighboring trees highlights the importance of communal living among Christians. The trunk, which is mainly used for wood and has rings in it, points to the need for Christians to live sacrificially and to review their lives periodically. The branches instruct Christians to draw strength from Christ by abiding in him. The leaves call on Christians to be thankful and to seek rejuvenation of their souls when they enter a dry patch in their spiritual lives. The seed that falls to the ground and dies challenges Christians to stay put and wait on God in order to gain a foothold in their spiritual lives. This book will convince us to look at trees in a different light. We begin to appreciate trees, which we have taken for granted, for their silent wisdom.

✏From Mormon to Mystic Book Summary : From Mormon to Mystic: Journey from Religious Disillusionment to Soulful Liberation chronicles the journey of a sixth-generation Mormon woman. She travels a path that takes her from a tightly knit and theologically strict religious community to the open expanses of a mystical understanding of reality. Erin Jensen weaves together the account of her transformation and the strands of insight that come from James Fowler’s Stages of Faith. By rooting her narrative in the vivid details of the steps she takes along the way, the author tells how she weathers her life’s challenges, including a federal court “witch” trial, and emerges from the depths of several “dark nights of the soul.” While From Mormon to Mystic immerses itself in the details of one life, it simultaneously offers guidance for anyone seeking to overcome the strictures of rigid systems of belief and behavior. In its pages, the reader will learn how to make his or her way toward freedom and wholeness by understanding how faith develops, learning to work with shadow qualities, practicing non-attachment, taking personal responsibility, trusting one’s ability to choose, appreciating the power of total forgiveness, connecting to inner sources of wisdom, and embracing a state of consciousness filled with hope, love, and peace. From Mormon to Mystic: Journey from Religious Disillusionment to Soulful Liberation offers both a narrative of one woman’s path to spiritual freedom and a guide for others who seek their own way from the confines of their current circumstances to the liberation they desire to envision for the own futures.

✏A Wildflower Grows in Brooklyn Book Summary : Julie Woodley understands trauma. From physical and sexual abuse as a child, to abortion, through the murder of a dear friend, to brain injury and cancer, she's experienced more than a lifetime's worth of pain and loss. But by the grace of God she's doing more than surviving, she's thriving. Like a wildflower thrusting itself through a broken sidewalk, God has raised Julie's joy and hope through the layers of loss and into the light of His plan for her. He has transformed her from a broken receiver of grace into a beautiful blossom who radiates the grace she has received into the lives of other hurting people. Trauma victims often feel weighed down by shame, anger, confusion, and pain. They may be so accustomed to getting by that having passion and joy seems a lost hope. In A Wildflower Grows in Brooklyn, they'll encounter a story that will inspire them to imagine a life restored and overflowing with all the good things God intends for them.

✏Likutey Moharan Book Summary : Rebbe Nachman of Breslev was a relative of Baal Shem Tov and one of the most brilliant Hasidic rabbis who ever lived. He wrote about how people should go off to a quiet place, preferably in nature, and speak to God as a friend. He also taught that no matter how bad a situation or person was, we should look for one good point, and then, by focusing on that, turn the bad into something good. Rebbe Nachman had a rough life, losing multiple children and his wife to illness. He died at the young age of thirty-eight after being sick for many years with tuberculosis. Despite his difficulties, Rebbe Nachman taught that a joyful life was always about your attitude. He said that you could not control what would happen to you, but you could control how you would react to it. The rebbes teachings were published in Hebrew as Likutey Moharan, recently translated into English with commentary by Rabbi Chaim Kramer.

✏Running on Empty Book Summary : Learn to live with God instead of for God. In this candid and achingly authentic book, Fil Anderson shares the healing insights that restored his spiritual compass and guided him back to God--the God who specializes in filling empty souls. Fil Anderson had accomplished more for God than most of his contemporaries, but his worn-out body housed an empty soul. His frenetic pace of ministry had earned him just one thing: greater pressure to do even more. He had fallen for the soul-killing lie that doing more for God would give his life meaning. Then the godly admonition of a spiritual director set this burned-out believer on a life-saving spiritual path. Sometimes the only way to get a new life is by running your old one completely into the ground. This powerful story of a reawakened soul can be the story of every person who has pursued spiritual productivity over intimacy with God and come up empty. It’s the story of reclaiming your soul and finding a home in the center of God’s relentless love. It’s the journey from self-importance to God-importance. “To the harried and the unharried, I pray that this book will minister to your heart in the profound way that it has blessed mine.” —Brennan Manning
