I've Been Called Now What?
Judson Press, December 2012
So, you've accepted a call to ministry. What next? This book
anticipates the questions you ask after accepting the call to ministry:
How do I discern the right ministry setting for me? Are pulpit
preaching and parish ministry the only viable options? Should I go to a
seminary or a Bible college? Should I be ordained - and if so, when?
This resource casts an overview of the ministry landscape for a new
minister at any stage of the journey, and recommends resources and
traveling companions along the way.

Tyndale Momentum, November 2012
In December 2011, Lauren (“LoLo”) Scruggs, a 23-year-old fashion
journalist, suffered a sudden injury that made headlines around the
world. She had been on a short flight to look at Christmas lights and,
upon exiting the small plane, was hit by the still-moving propeller
blade. A frantic 911 call, several major surgeries, and thousands of
prayers later: Lauren lived. But she lost her left hand and left eye.
And she had to face some incredibly difficult questions: What kind of future will I have? Where is God in all this pain? Will anyone ever be able to love me now? In Still LoLo,
Lauren speaks out for the first time since her accident. She and her
family reveal what really happened that night, what Lauren’s life is
like today, what got them through their journey toward healing, and how
they conquered all odds to persevere as a family. It’s a compelling and
fiercely beautiful story of faith, determination, and staying true to
who you are—no matter what.
