Second Chances is a hopeful and thoughtful compendium of anecdotes from people who have wanted another chance at something—and have taken it. It’s the big stuff like going back to college after the kids have grown up, as well as the little things like getting a judo belt when you thought you could hardly manage a push-up. The book collects the hopeful examples of people who found a leg up, another spurt of energy, a hidden talent, or even an untapped strength, sometimes with the unexpected help of friends or strangers. Combining the feel-good qualities of One Good Deed and the crowdsourcing methods of Like My Mother Always Said, Erin McHugh’s latest book is an inspirational guide about letting the future win over the past.
Most of us spend our lives ruled by a variety of negative forces death, doubt, anger, lust, and failure, worry the list could go on and on. But what if these negative forces were all rooted in the same problem? In Overcoming Fear, Dr. Creflo Dollar proves that they are all, in fact, rooted in fear. More importantly, he explains why this is actually a good thing for Christians. By demonstrating that fear is a force that does not come from God, Dr. Dollar illustrates that fear is something that Believers don t have to tolerate in their lives. Chapter by chapter, Dr. Dollar uses Scripture and powerful personal testimony to show readers how they can eliminate any type of fear imaginable from their lives, freeing themselves from the enemy s bondage and solidifying their stance in a life of faith.

In this book, you’re going to read about a different kind of love story. It’s a love story each and every one of us is currently playing a role in–whether we’re aware of it or not. And truth be told, it’s scary-critical that we stay tuned-in to this love story. Because outside of a growing relationship with your heavenly Father, no other love (or lack of love) has the potential to improve or implode your life like the love that you have for you.
For anyone who has ever struggled with their identity, Landra Young Hughes has a radically simple message: give up. Specifically, give up your need to be in control of how other people see you. Instead, let God’s words–not yours and not others’–define you. Through her own deeply personal story of trying to control her circumstances and others’ perceptions of her through an eating disorder, Landra points the way toward a life free from self-obsession and self-resentment. She shows you how to listen to God’s voice, let go of the struggle for perfection, and live authentically from your deepest self.
