Conversations with God
an uncommon dialogue
by Neale Donald Walsch
"Suppose you could ask God the most puzzling questions about existence - questions about love and faith, life and death, good and evil. Suppose God provided clear, understandable answers. It happened to Neale Donald Walsch. It can happen to you."
Neale Donald Walsch is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before experiencing his now famous conversation with God. The "Conversations with God" series of books that emerged from those encounters has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.
Grace, Guidance, and Gifts Sacred Blessings to Light Your Way
by Sonia Choquette
"Our greatest purpose is to free ourselves of the limiting patterns of ego and soul that keep us chained to painful, disempowered lives so that we can fully realize the authentic and holy spirits we are. This journey can feel overwhelming - even impossible - unless we gain access to the three sacred blessings of Spirit, made available to us from God. Without them we fail. These sacred blessings are God's grace, inner guidance and personal gifts."
Sonia Choquette is a world-renowned author, storyteller, vibrational healer, and six-sensory spiritual teacher in international demand for her guidance, wisdom, and capacity to heal the soul. She is author of The New York Times bestseller The Answer is Simple..., among other books, audio programs and card decks."

the promise is His Presence
Why God is Always Enough
by Glenna Marshall
Glenna Marshall's awakening to God's presence began in the depths of winter. Rereading her journal, she realized that for six months she'd been cataloging all the ways God had abandoned her. What if that . . . wasn't true? Glenna traces the theme of God's presence from Genesis to Revelation and shows what it means for us in our own daily joys and struggles.
"In this book that is achingly beautiful and brimming with gospel truth, Glenna Marshall follows the thread of God's goodness and faithfulness throughout the entirety of Scripture while also seamlessly weaving in her own path of pain and suffering. This is a charge to God's people to remember that the point of our trials isn't how quickly we can barrel through them but, rather, who we can come to know and love more deeply along the way. I found a fellow sojourner and was reminded of a faithful shepherd in the The Promise Is His Presence." - Gillian Marchenko, Author, Still Life: A Memoir of Living Fully with Depression
