Fighting Fear With Faith: Weathering the Storms with God’s promises by Denise George

For many women in difficult situations, fear takes a powerful hold. The reasons, whether real or imagined, abound: the possibility of illness or death; loss or rejection; crime, war or terror; failure or the uncertainty of the future. Some fears are healthy-gifts from God to protect us. Many fears, though, are pretenders-tools of the enemy to harm us. Fighting Fear with Faith helps readers to discern the difference, to remember God’s promises and to appropriate God’s great power. Stories of people from the Bible and from Christian history inspire courage and strength. With a complete Bible study guide included, Fighting Fear with Faith is ideal for individual or group study. Like a mighty elm tree that survives a stormy blast, a life connected to the strong root of Jesus can, too, withstand the storms.

I Am My Sister’s Keeper: Reaching out to Wounded Women by Denise George

We live in a world of hurting women. And just as Jesus compassionately loved those who were suffering, so can we. “As Christian women, our hearts ache with a world that suffers,” author Denise George cries. “Our love for God compels us to put our love into action.”
I Am My Sister’s Keeper tenderly addresses issues like broken relationships and divorce; unforgiveness; loneliness; spouse abuse; and loss and grief. Through biblical stories and contemporary stories of wounded women, George’s advice guides readers in how to pray, offer a listening ear, share from their own experiences and encourage others with God’s promises. A complete Bible study guide makes this an ideal resource for groups of women to study together.
With the love of Jesus poured out through his followers, hurting women begin to overcome painful circumstances. Through our hearts and our hands, God still heals wounded women.

Dealing With Depression: Trusting God through the Dark Times by Sarah Collins & Jayne Haynes

Depression is a common complaint in the doctor’s surgery and 1 in 5 of the population that is 20% of people will have at least one major episode in their lifetime. We are reassured here that just like our physical health we can go through good and bad emotional health. But how does the Christian deal with this? It is so easy for us to be riddled with guilt but in this book the Christian is reassured that God knows and deals with us by grace, He helps us move from guilt to grace. Written from a Biblical and medical perspective.
