Adventures Await When You Overcome Fear This is the story of a normal family of five living a very unusual life. The Medearis family has faced Middle Eastern prisons, death threats, being kicked out of a country two times, and war. It hasn't always been easy, but in the midst of it all, the invitation of Jesus to follow and not be afraid has won the day. But this is more than just their story. It's also a guide to help you step out in bold faith. Whether the call of Jesus for you means international intrigue, giving up all you have for the poor, or simply being the suburban neighbor you were always meant to be, it's time to begin your own adventure! To live a life where fear takes a backseat and God takes the wheel. In the end, of course, there are no promises of an easy life or a path free of troubles. But enormous blessings await those who walk in faith. It's time to go where Jesus is calling and do what God is doing. Don't put off the adventure he's been saving just for you. "Reading Adventures in Saying Yes is so much fun you don't realize at first how profound it is. . . . In an era when people, races, religions, and countries are being torn apart by fear, this call to move past fear and follow Jesus into caring connections is essential reading."--Lynne Hybels, Advocate for Global Engagement, Willow Creek Community Church "You'll cry. You'll laugh. You'll shake your head in disbelief. But most of all, you'll never be the same after this book. It will inspire and ignite you to go beyond planning and start saying yes to Jesus' nonstop invitations to join him in what he's already up to in the world."--Leonard Sweet, bestselling author, professor (Drew University, George Fox University, Tabor College), and chief contributor to "We are all looking for ways to be inspired and challenged in our life with Jesus. Carl's stories don't just entertain you. They call you to live courageously in the face of your fears."--Jay Pathak, Senior Pastor, Mile High Vineyard Church, and coauthor of The Art of Neighboring "Carl Medearis gives us a rare look into the utterly vulnerable, harrowing, uplifting, and often witty adventures of one who has dared to say yes in the face of fear for the sake of the good news. What's most amazing about this book is that it all actually happened. . . . Brilliant. Simply brilliant."--Ted Dekker, New York Times bestselling author "The gospel of Jesus is not about security and segregation. . . . Adventures in Saying Yes is a compelling call to embody the risky faith and radical hospitality of Jesus!"--Brian Zahnd, Pastor of Word, Life Church (St. Joseph, MO), and author of A Farewell to Mars "This book will press you toward a closer walk, a deeper love, and an undaunted life of following Jesus. Carl disarms the reader with his warm and engaging style, yet delivers deep biblical truth about what it means to be a fearless disciple. As a Lebanese immigrant to the States, I can promise you that Carl clearly understands the culture and made me yearn for home. I was deeply moved by what God will do through us when we simply say yes."--Lina AbuJamra, MD, pediatric ER doctor and author of Stripped "Even if you don't like biographical books by missionaries, you are going to love this one. It's so much more than the story of a family learning how to live gracefully among Muslims. This is a text on overcoming fear, learning how to trust strangers, and allowing God to guide all you do."--Tony Campolo, PhD, Eastern University "Written with real-life integrity and humor, this story explodes with invitations--to risk, to trust, to imagine, to open, to more . . ."--Wm. Paul Young, author of The Shack

Lessons for Living Beyond the Ego

Author: David Mutchler
Publisher: BalboaPress
ISBN: 9781452544847
Release Date: 2012-01-25
Genre: Self-Help

Everyone desires happiness, and countless ways have been proposed to help you achieve it. What’s commonly overlooked is that happiness is our natural state, and therefore must be allowed, rather than achieved. The way to allow happiness in your life is to awaken to the truth that everyone has an ego; that ego blocks our happiness, just as clouds block the sun from shining through. The secret to finding happiness is not something you do; you need only become aware of the presence of ego in your life. This requires learning what ego is, where it comes from, where it hides, how it presents itself, and how to recognize it when you find it. Your awareness of ego causes it to gradually dissipate. The more conscious you become of it, the more the light of happiness shines within you. This light is the light of Spirit. Awakening to the presence of ego inside you is the sure path to grow beyond your ego and to live a spiritual life, the gifts of which are happiness, joy, and peace of mind. Growing beyond one’s ego to achieve happiness is a journey, not a one-time event. Lessons for Living Beyond the Ego is a collection of fifty-two lessons to help you stay on the path of your journey into happiness. It can be read either as a follow up to Beyond the Ego—a previous book by David Mutchler—or as an introduction to it.

Genre: Religion

Fearless Living is a unique reflective journey that leads the reader from looking at the world, circumstances, events with fear to a place of trust in God. Each day presents a passage of scripture where we are told not to fear. The context of when and where this directive was given by God is explored. Then the lessons and truths that are evident in the day's scripture are given for thought and reflection. Each day reveals the consistent, immutable character of God and how he wants those that follow Him to trust and obey Him. A prayer is given to help the reader to connect with God and seek to apply the lessons and truths. The next step in trusting is to learn to fear God not those circumstances. A verse or two of scripture is given for reflection to help refine our thinking into placing our trust and fear in God alone. The last section of each day is devoted to personal reflection and thinking on how the scripture can be applied to life. How do I go about living each day without fear as God intended? Each day builds one upon another to give assurance and hope for life without fear based on trust in God.

Genre: Religion

Life and death struggles, a common thread that connects us as human beings, are vividly revealed in this inspirational and unforgettable true story as told by a mother and her daughter of their babies, born with life threatening birth defects. Swept away on an uncharted and treacherous journey one thing clearly emerges, God, the ultimate thread that held them together through their darkest hours, was waiting for them there. He gave them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness so He might be glorified through their babies’ life and death struggles. (Isaiah 61: 3b) At every bend in the road lives were forever changed. The baby boy unable to ever speak a word about what he endured in his fight for life went to his grave never knowing what a giant impression his tiny handprint had left on every heart he touched...leaving this world a better place than he found it. For the little girl, the veil separating Heaven and Earth was lifted . . . “Mommy, I see an angel!” Hoping to get a glimpse, her mommy searched the hospital room eagerly. “Where do you see an angel?” her mommy asked. She pointed overhead, “Up there . . . in the corner of my room . . . one angel with big, pink wings.” Although her mommy didn’t see the Heavenly being, together they felt the comfort of its presence. On their timeless journey of faith, hope, and love, their loving God went with them through it all: healing hearts, changing lives, sharing their deepest sorrows, and sending his angels to comfort and help them. Their stories, formed in the crucible of life and death struggles, were transformed by the grace of God into a thing of beauty. “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time.” (Ecclesiastes 3: 11a, KJV)
