Susie Mast’s Old Order life in Lancaster County’s Hickory Hollow has been shaped by events beyond her control, with the tragic deaths of her Dat and close-in-age brother casting a particularly long shadow. Now twenty-two, Susie remains unmarried despite her longtime affection for friend Obie Yoder. Believing Obie might never show romantic interest in her, Susie accepts Del Petersheim’s invitations–it is only after Obie leaves to take an apprenticeship that Susie realizes her mistake.
Unfortunately, Susie’s cares are soon multiplied due to her mother’s worsening health and her younger sister’s desire for answers about her adoption. Once again, Susie faces the possibility of loss. Will family secrets and missed opportunities dim Susie’s hopes for the future? Or is what seems like the end only the beginning?

Wonder Switch : The Difference Between Limiting Your Life And Living Your D$25.99Add to cart
Reclaim your wonder, reshape your life.
We are all born with the wonder switch in the “on” position, but somewhere along the way, our wonder was crushed. When wonder dies, we begin believing the messages telling us to grow up and get in line. In other words, we were made for wonder, but it’s been educated right out of our souls.
Yet reclaiming your wonder–and with it, your life–is within your reach. In The Wonder Switch, join professional illusionist Harris III in a journey to bring you back to magic–not the stuff of sleight of hand that he performs across world stages, but real magic: love, hope, joy, belonging, meaning, and purpose.
Cynicism is the force that actively shuts down all of these things. But wonder is the key that unlocks your permission to believe again. The secret to a vibrant life is found in reawakening your childlike wonder, helping you to stop misusing your imagination to worry, and get back to dreaming, innovating, and creating the life you were actually meant to live.
In this book, you’ll discover:
*The surprising science behind the stories we tell ourselves and how they shape our lives
*How to identify what’s crushing your wonder
*Practices for getting curious and dreaming again
*How to create better internal drama that energizes rather than drains us
*The tools you need to redesign your life
*Why worry is a misuse of your imagination, and how to kick the habit
The beginning of everything you want, Harris writes, is on the other side of this switch.

Bestselling author and recovering people-pleaser Karen Ehman offers stories and helpful tools from her own life to equip you with practical and biblical advice on how to break free from the pleasing game and reclaim your peace and purpose.
Feeling overwhelmed, burnt-out, and pulled in too many directions by the needs of others? If you wish you had a little more freedom and margin in your daily schedule, this is the book for you.
Author and speaker Karen Ehman knows firsthand how people-pleasing locks us in a prison, trapping us in unhealthy habits which distract us from our true selves and our God-given purpose. With honesty and practical wisdom, Ehman explores why we fall into people-pleasing behaviors and offers advice for how we can break out into the freedom God has called us to. Because the truth is we cannot fulfill our divine purpose if we’re too busy living everyone else’s.
With vulnerable and humorous stories, biblical insight, and encouragement from someone who’s been there, Ehman will help you:
*Discover how to live out your priorities despite the opinions and expectations of others
*Cultivate a strategy for knowing when to say yes and how to say no
*Implement boundaries with the pushers, pouters, guilt-bombers and others who try to call the shots in your life
*Learn to navigate the tension between following God and loving the people around you
When Making Others Happy Is Making You Miserable is the key you need to quit the pleasing game, reclaim your life, and walk with God in peace and confidence.

Halftime : Moving From Success To Significance (Anniversary)$22.99Add to cart
Are you ready to move into the second half of your life?
Bob Buford believes the second half of your life can be better than the first. Much better. But first, you need time to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.
In Halftime, Buford focuses on this important time of transition-the time when, as he says, a person moves beyond the first half of the game of life. It’s halftime, a time of revitalization and for catching a new vision for living the second half, the half where life can be lived at its most rewarding. As Buford explains, “My passion is to multiply all that God has given me, and in the process, give it back.”
Features of this newly updated and expanded 20th Anniversary edition include a foreword by Jim Collins, the bestselling author of Good to Great; new questions for reflection or discussion at the end of each chapter; brand new “halftime” stories of men and women enjoying a second half of significance; specific halftime assignments to guide readers into their second-half mission; an essay by Bob on “The Wisdom of Peter Drucker”; a special update from the author on how the halftime movement is growing nationally, and links to outstanding resources.
