 May your holidays this year be especially warm of heart and filled with love and remember to enjoy the moment in the middle of the hectic pace.

Here are some quotes and book suggestions to lift your spirits and give you peace.

    • Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. Martin Luther

    • Love makes all hard hearts gentle. George Herbert

    • Above all love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8 NIV

    • Character like sweet herbs, should give off its finest fragrance when pressed. And live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Eph. 5:2

    • Where there is peace, God is. Herbert

    • When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies live at peace with him. Prov. 16:7

    • Hope, that bubbling ingredient in life which is like carbonation in a drink, giving it zest, keeping it in motion, always pushing it up. DePree

    • A heart at peace gives life to the body… Prov. 14:30

    • Speak kind words and you will hear kind echos.

WISE WORDS WELL-SPOKEN “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

Here are some suggestions if you are ready to eat some ‘good food’ of the book kind…

Awakening the Slumbering Spirit      by John Loren & Paula Sandford Awakening the Slumbering Spirit by John Loren & Paula Sandford B-000-005

Have you ever longed to do something great for God but lacked the ability to put feet to your longings? Have you tried to overcome your lack of passion for God but felt harnessed by spiritual sluggishness?

Awakening the Slumbering Spirit presents the possibility that your own inner spirit may be slumbering, unfocused, and even apathetic because of unresolved spiritual issues. It shows how this can affect your conscience or hinder you from building and sustaining personal relationships, intimate communication, and a devotional life.

As you read this uniquely written book, you will find life-transforming principles for allowing the Holy Spirit to awaken your personal spirit and help you learn to walk confidently in the nature and image of Christ. 


Letting Go Of Your Past   (A3) by John Loren & Paula Sandford Letting Go Of Your Past (A3) by John Loren & Paula Sandford B-000-004

The third book in The Transformation Series, this sequel to Transforming the Inner Man and God’s Power to Change focuses on relationships and events that disable us from being able to relate and communicate with others effectively. By applying the scriptural principles for healing in this book, we can confidently:

· Build and maintain healthy relationships with spiritual and biological parents
· Create the right balance between “bearing one another’s burdens” and allowing healthy separation as we empower others to grow and flourish
· Find true oneness in marriage relationships
· Become effective, contributing parts of society

The Transformation Series is a four-book collection that walks readers through the process of being renewed in mind and heart by the transforming power of the cross. It will lead to wholeness and balance personally and within the body of Christ.


Healing the Nations    (A3) by John Loren Sandford Healing the Nations (A3) by John Loren Sandford B-000-003

Best-selling author John Loren Sandford believes God’s people can make a difference in their families, communities, nation and world. What will it take? In Healing the Nations John says it will take mature sons and daughters willing to look beyond their own problems and embrace the hurting. We can all become burden-bearing intercessors whom God uses to heal the wounds of abuse, racial hatred or the pain of ethnic cleansing. In this book Sandford explains: how generational sin is passed down through families or nations, how to heal generational sin or addictions, Satan’s master plan and how to minimize its impact, seven rewards from burden-bearing, how to break free from individual or corporate mental strongholds, and keys to unlock revival in a nation.

A tremendous book to help prepare the Body of Christ for Christ's return. A must-read for every believer -- Dr. Bill Hamon, president, Christian International Ministries Network

This book is a call for praying people to catch the Fathers heart, to arise and stand between destiny and destruction. This is not a position without conflict, and this is not a book without controversy, but only immaturity disdains questions. In this book John Sandford boldly asks and courageously answers some of the significant questions of our time -- Tommy Tenney, founder, GodChasers Network

We have entered a remarkable season in which Christian reconcilers like myself and Desmond Tutu give talks at Harvard University on healing nations. How did this happen? It began years ago when authors like John Sandford pioneered biblical methods of ministering restoration to wounded people. Now this spiritual father has given us a treasure of explicit teaching that speaks to the corporate personality of nations and peoples -- John Dawson, founder, International Reconciliation Coalition

You are about to open the pages of an amazing book. It is life-changing and groundbreaking -- from the foreword by Cindy Jacobs, co-founder, Generals of Intercession



Choosing Forgiveness    (A3) by John Loren & Paula Sandford Choosing Forgiveness (A3) by John Loren & Paula Sandford B-000-006

Sin and forgiveness are not exciting or happy issues to think about, and most people try to avoid dealing with them whenever possible.

John and Paula Sandford explain how ego and pride are involved in hurtful situations and how, in the world’s eyes, it would be natural to seek revenge. But unforgiveness and sin have a way of keeping us in a constant state of chaos and trouble.

Sin isolates us from each other and from God, but forgiveness is the antidote to sin. Forgiveness is a crucial and pivotal element to spiritual and personal growth. If you want to be happy, to be healthy, and to grow in relationships with others, forgiveness is not an option; it is a necessity.
