LT & Me
Loreane Tomlinson
Tyndale House Publishers
When San Diego Chargers running back and NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson (“LT”) was a senior in high school, he wrote his mom a letter making three promises: He was going to go to college, he was going to play professional football, and he was going to make her the proudest mother in the world. In LT & Me, Loreane Tomlinson tells the behind-the-scenes story of how all of these once seemingly impossible dreams came true. Her fascinating and poignant tales of raising LT through her days as a struggling single mom, and watching him doggedly overcome obstacles in his quest for greatness, will inspire you to bring out the champion in your kids—and in yourself. Contains a foreword by LaDainian Tomlinson and a color photo insert.

Any Minute: A Novel
Joyce Meyer and Deborah Bradford
Faithwords, July 2009
Sarah Harper is driven to achieve success no matter what the cost. She wants to do good and not hurt the people she loves--especially children and her husband, Joe--but her desire to succeed in her career too often leaves little time for family. One cold, autumn afternoon, all of that changes when Sarah's car plunges off a bridge and into a river. She is presumed dead by those on the "outside," but Sarah's spirit is still very much alive. What she discovers on the other side transforms everything about Sarah's view of life--past, present, and future. When Sarah is revived, she is a changed woman. And the unsuspecting world around her will never be the same again.

Wrestling Prayer
Eric and Leslie Ludy
Harvest House Publishers, June 2009
Eric and Leslie Ludy have a strong platform among 20–to–40–year–olds—because their lives show that “Christian ideals,” when practically lived out, become realities that make the lives of Christians the most satisfying and challenging on earth. In Wrestling Prayer, readers who hunger for this pattern of living will see that a great prayer life is more than a nice–sounding concept—it’s down–to–earth and attainable. Eric and Leslie urge transformation—
  • from doubting God’s power to expecting His supernatural intervention
  • from distance from God to connection with Him
  • from the sense of falling short to the strength of victory
  • from “bless this food” prayers to world–changing intercession
  • from feeling defeated to setting people free

Readers whose concept of prayer has fallen into disrepair will newly desire to pray and bring God’s purposes to bear on earth. Wrestling Prayer will light a soul–fire that can burn bright and hot for years to come.
