Book Excerpt

Will lifting weights make women bulk up?

One of my favourite haunts is Chapters bookstore. I love nothing more than to order a steamed milk at Starbucks and then browse through the books for hours on end. Sometimes I’ll peruse the magazine rack and I’m often amazed at the variety of magazines available for every hobby, interest, and sport. I tend to migrate towards the fitness magazines with the body builders on the front cover. Muscles bulging over muscles. And it’s not limited to men either. Women can have bulging muscles too.

 

But not the average woman. We just don’t have the genetic makeup to develop huge muscles. The women on the covers of these magazines devote hours and hours a day lifting very heavy weights. They are on a specific diet and exercise regime to get that big.

 

So no worries if you think that by lifting weights you’ll bulk up. This simply isn’t true. Women have less of the hormone needed to build muscle bulk easily. And because muscle tissue is more dense than fat, adding a little bit more muscle to your body and decreasing your fat actually makes you look leaner—not bigger.

 

It’ll not only help you lose weight, but you’ll sleep better, have more energy, reduce your risk of heart disease, combat loss of bone and decrease your risk of osteoporosis.

 

So put your fears aside and start strength training today.

Ten Reminders for the Single Christian Woman by Pamela Q. Fernandes

About the Book

In Ten Reminders for the Single Christian Woman, Pamela Q. Fernandes talks about why you should stay optimistic and remain in God’s love.

Book trailer

Book Excerpt

Maybe you’re someone who has made a grave mistake or someone whose heart has been broken. Maybe you’re a woman who is doubtful. As a thirty-something woman, I can assure you that it’s natural to feel this way. To wonder, if we’re doing something wrong? Irrespective of which stage of the curve you are, as a single Christian woman, this book is a series of faith reminders as you go about your vocation. It’s not about finding the right partner or getting married or staying single. No, it’s about remembering God’s promises and ensuring that your single life is lived to its fullest. It’s about enjoying and traveling, growing spiritually, sowing the seeds of faith wherever you go and fulfilling your ministry as a single person. This is a time for growing and sowing.

Sometimes our ministry is borne of our deepest pain. God will use your trials for His glory. There are no coincidences in life. Our Father has orchestrated everything.

When we surrender our desperation at the foot of the cross, God can use it marvelously. God asked Moses in Exodus 4:2 (RSV), “What is that in your hand?” He said, “A staff.” And he said, “Throw it on the ground.” So he threw the staff on the ground, and it became a snake, and Moses drew back from it.

That very staff was used to part the Red Sea and to create all the magic tricks that left the Egyptians spellbound. God used that simple staff and did so many things with it. Powerful things.

With whatever you have right now, God can use it for his glory. God can use your ministry and turn it into something so amazing, that it’s beyond your wildest dreams.

I must admit, I didn’t want to write this book. Like every Christian assignment in my life that the Lord asked me to do, I whined and said no. With my first book, Ten Reminders for the Christian Unemployed, then with the Christian Circle podcast, I had reservations and complaints. Can you imagine that? God asked me to do His work, and I had reservations. Me! The gall of me!

But I did. Why? Because I didn’t want to open my Bible and be confronted with the truth. I didn’t want to read it and find it separating bone from my flesh, pointing out what a hypocrite I was. Showing me that I had failed God in so many ways that I had chosen everything but God at times. I didn’t want to study and learn what I already knew, that I was flawed and sinful. That God was calling me to a life of holiness. In a world where I liked to believe that God was all loving, I didn’t want to confront a God who was also one of justice and one to whom I’d have to give an account of my life to someday.

Then there was the world. What would they say? Liberal Christian women would sneer at me, liberated women would hate me, and my own friends would mock me if they’d ever read a word of what I’d written. Why are you making me write this Lord? Why?

But God wanted me to write. I wrote to my editor, and half prayed she would reject my book because I wasn’t ready to write what God wanted me to write. As I went through Lent and sat down every day at three in the afternoon to pray, God gave me lines of words, promises, from my Bible, or reminded me what to say, when I didn’t know what to write. And that’s the beauty of it. By ourselves, we can do little, but God can take our ordinary staffs and little hands and do magic.

Christ completes you and me. You may be lonely, broken, abused, but God loves you not because of who you are and what you do for Him, but because of who HE is.

He is changing the water of your life into the wine of his kingdom.

I pray that these Ten Reminders that I use to keep me in God’s grace through my season of singlehood will be helpful to you as well.

About the Author

Top 10 Books Every Christian Should Read

Top 10 Books Every Christian Should Read

By Jim Baton, Christian thriller writer

 

Every novelist is inevitably a reader first. I confess that I’d rather spend a holiday reading a good book than doing most anything.

Over the years, so many books have greatly impacted my life. But there are certain books that were absolutely transformational—they either brought the most important things into crystal clear focus, or took me to a new place with God where I desperately needed to go.

These books may not get the notoriety of Christianity Today’s or Amazon’s Top 100 Lists, but I guarantee they will all rock your world!

The Pharisees had the Scriptures but had created a religious culture that kept the common folks from God—have we done the same today? This book is ripping me up right now!

Los Angeles gang members’ hearts get melted by the raw love of God—I cried through the whole book.

A prophetic, insightful and hopeful view of the glorious Bride God is forming us into and how this maturing Church will be powerfully impacting all aspects of culture by 2050.

Whether talking to a Hezbollah terrorist or a gay activist, Carl convinces us that Jesus would rather hang out with them than visit Carl’s church!

“Jesus is perfect theology,” Bill states, then gives us a “mind-makeover” to step into a supernatural life with Him.

What if every day we took time to stop and pray for a stranger? River Jordan did, and it changed her life.

Mother Teresa’s personal letters and thoughts reveal long struggles in the darkness, along with a determination to see Jesus in the face of the dying and “offer Jesus my smile.”

A revolutionary book on moving from punishment-based discipline to honor-based relationships without fear.

For those over 30, the second-half of life requires a new way of thinking, and Rohr is a brilliant guide.

Walking through darkness, taking risks, releasing our need for clarity—all these require deeper levels of trust—not in Biblical principles, but in a faithful Father who is completely trustworthy.

 

Jim Baton’s 20 years of cross-cultural learning in a Muslim nation have birthed a series of novels that are transforming people’s perceptions on Muslims and how God would have us relate to them in love. Find out more at www.jimbaton.com.

A Year of Tenacity by Janet Sketchley

About the Book

365 Daily Devotions to Warm Your Spirit and Encourage Your Heart

“Tenacity” is persistence. Holding on. Not giving up. It’s a quality we need as Christians, and the beautiful thing we discover as we spend time with the Lord is the depth of His tenacity toward us. We may falter, but His hold is sure, His love unshakable, and His grace without limit.

Like the wild rose thrives with its roots anchored in the cleft in the rock, we find life and security when we abide in our Rock.

A Year of Tenacity is a compilation of the best devotionals from the author’s blog, “Tenacity,” freshly updated for this book. Some are short, others fill a page, but each of these conversational-style insights and heart-sharing moments will bless and inspire.

Entries are numbered by day, not by date, so readers aren’t tied to a calendar year and don’t have to play catch-up if they miss a few days.

Honest, engaging, and uplifting, these devotionals are ideal for both long-time Christians and those just finding their way.

 

Book Excerpt

Day 1

Our Good Shepherd

He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth. And he will be our peace… Micah 5:4-5a, NIV

This seems to be one of those prophecies with different stages. Ultimately, Jesus will return. Every knee will bow, and every tongue acknowledge the sovereignty of God (Romans 14:11). The world will know Jesus is Lord.

But today, He rules in Christians’ hearts and lives. He stands — a warrior who cannot be overcome — and shepherds us. He stands in strength, majesty and power. Despite our circumstances, our hearts can be secure — we can live securely — because He is shepherding us.

And He will be our peace.

Be my peace, Jesus, even in the storms. Nothing can separate me from You, and You’ll never abandon me. Strengthen my faith to trust You.

Book Excerpt

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Washington DC.

Simon Marshall’s knife grated against his plate as he cut the first bite of his lunch. It made a sharp uncomfortable noise similar to fingernails being scraped on a blackboard.

He chewed slowly, taking all the time in the world, because he never could rush eating good food. No matter how simple or complex a dish was, he always had time to enjoy every last bit of it.

The hollandaise sauce held a hint of a smoky flavor, which was intensified by the even smokier bacon. The perfectly runny egg placed on a bed of spinach atop an English muffin completed the dish’s savory, buttery, and creamy taste. The combination of flavors and unique textures swept him away to his happy place.

It was his favorite breakfast, but today he had chosen it for lunch. There hadn’t been enough time for breakfast this particular morning.

Across the street, hidden inside a black panel van, two of Ghassan’s men waited patiently. They had been watching Marshall observantly for three days, noting down every single detail, from what time he rose each morning to what he watched on television each evening. Every day he ate at the same café, either for breakfast or lunch. It gave them several options, none of which they liked very much, and all of which made it likely that someone would spot them. Whatever they did, it would have to be a smooth and quick operation—there was no doubt about it.

On the same side of the street as the café, another one of Ghassan’s men was dressed like a bum. He loitered in an alleyway in a convincing drunken stupor. From his spot, he could monitor the entrance of the café, but he couldn’t quite see inside. A fourth man was seated inside the café, pretending to read the paper and enjoying a very strong espresso. It was not quite the same as the Turkish coffee he was used to, but it was still good. He was the leader of the second team, a spindly, thin man with a hooked-beak nose and a sharp jaw.

Waiting, waiting, waiting.

Simon didn’t taken any notice of the thin Turkish man seated two tables across from him. He was too busy enjoying his food to be bothered by what other people were doing or who was around him. For Simon, life was full of listening to people and observing them, trying to help sort out their problems. But when he went out to his favorite café, it was one of the few times during the day he could just switch off and not care about his surroundings.

The recent events in the news though—IMJIW attacking Iraq, a US journalist being beheaded, and threats of more violence—weighed heavily on his mind. He finished his meal and paid at the counter in cash before stepping outside into the warm air.

It was too hot for the suit jacket he was wearing, so he draped it over his arm and walked down the sidewalk to his car. Still in the afterglow of a good meal, he failed to observe the Middle Eastern man or the bum who had begun to follow him at a distance.

When it happened, it was very fast.

A man bumped into his shoulder as he walked past, and he felt a sharp sting like the prick of a small needle.

“Ouch, watch where you’re going, why don’t you!”

The thin man kept walking and didn’t look back.

Simon began to feel sluggish and slow; he clutched at his shoulder where the sharp stinging pain remained. He found it hard to stand up straight and stumbled onward for two more steps before collapsing to his knees. His face went pale and he looked like he was about to have a heart attack.

Then he heard the screech of tires coming to a halt and two men coming towards him, “Sir, are you alright?”

“No, I’m not alright, I think something is wrong. Please call an ambulance!”

“We’ll get you to the hospital, it’s okay.”

“No, you don’t have to do that. Just please call an ambulance.”

“We really must get you to the hospital, sir, you don’t look very well at all.”

The two men grabbed him by the shoulders and carefully helped him into the back of their plain black panel van just before he lost consciousness.

The van roared off leaving concerned passersby curious about what they had just seen. Around the corner in a deserted alleyway, the bum and the Middle Eastern man hopped into the black panel van. Then the driver hit the gas once more. He wasn’t going to stop for anybody.

Jim’s third novel of the Peace Trilogy confronts American prejudice head-on. Pursuing world peace today will require a generation committed to a deeper level of trust and cooperation than ever before.

Book Excerpt

DAY 1

Chapter 1

Everything was pitch black.

Sari thought she’d opened her eyes, but maybe she hadn’t. She closed them—darkness; she opened them again—nothing changed.

Was she dreaming? The pounding pain in her head felt very real. She could feel the pillow under her neck. She was lying on a bed.

But where am I?

Her home in Indonesia was never this dark. Even when the electricity failed, which happened fairly often, eventually her eyes would adjust enough for her to stumble from her bedroom to the kitchen and light a candle. Or she used the flashlight in her cell phone to guide her.

Her cell phone! She always kept it on the floor next to her bed at night. She reached down over the edge of the bed and whacked her knuckles on—the floor?

Confused, she slowly ran her fingers along the edge of her bed, but the floor around her, which she’d expected to be much lower, was empty. She checked the other side of the bed and discovered it was the same. And her cell phone was nowhere to be found. Goosebumps rose up on her neck. Sari shuddered.

Sari’s brain was a dense fog, and it was hard to think. She rubbed her forehead, hands unseen, trying to focus on something, anything that made sense.

Where am I? Come on, remember!

Sari relaxed her head on the pillow again and closed her eyes, searching her memory.

The last time she had awakened was in her own bed in Banjarmasin. Her adopted father, Pak Abdullah, had touched her shoulder long before dawn. “Sari, let’s go,” she had heard him say.

Fuzzy recollections of hugging Pak Abdullah goodbye at the airport, taking Garuda Airlines to Jakarta, then meeting Ismail for the first time, another airplane ride to America, landing in Atlanta…

Atlanta! She remembered the huge airport, and her feeling of giddiness at her long-dreamed-of first trip overseas. She was gathering with young people from all over the world—ten Muslims and ten Christians attending a conference on peace. They climbed aboard a bus. A kind African young man with a rhyming name had helped her with her bag. Some of the faces and names floated through her consciousness. And a handsome American named Jack was directing them.

A wave of nausea washed over her and she had to change her focus to keep from retching. She rolled onto her side and pulled her knees toward her stomach. Her hip could feel the hard surface beneath what must be a thin mat. Was she sick? Was this a hospital? Was it a morgue? Everything was so deathly silent, except for the breathing.

Sari suddenly realized she was not alone. Panic stirred the nausea again and it was all she could do to hold back the bile in her throat. Who was out there? Her imagination called up fearful images from her past and she shuddered again.

When the nausea passed, she pushed the fog and the fear back as far as she could and told herself again: Remember!

Rosa No-Name by Roger Bruner

About the Book

Rosa No-Name leaves her tiny Mexican village a rejected, illiterate, pregnant sixteen-year-old and returns at twenty a mature, highly literate woman. Can she forgive the villagers for the way they mistreated her as an unwanted orphan and help them find a way to survive? And will she find the God she’s been seeking?

Rosa No-Name is the prequel to the Altered Hearts young adult book, Found in Translation. It’s a coming-of-age novel that requires no familiarity with Found in Translation despite a small overlapping of the stories being told from opposite points of view.

Book Excerpt

My precious Anjelita,

I can’t believe you are eighteen now and attending an American college. How quickly the years have passed.

Although I clearly remember every detail of your birth, other facts about our life together would have been lost forever without the journal Dr. Morales convinced me to keep. You know too well how my journal was almost destroyed and yet lovingly preserved at far too costly a price.

You are familiar with many aspects of my past, some from your own experiences. But you’ve also asked questions that were too personal—too sensitive—to answer when you were younger. I didn’t think you could handle that much truth yet.

You’re a grown woman now. A very mature one. I believe you are ready.

I couldn’t tell you these things in person. Regardless of what you might think, I don’t consider myself a very strong woman.

The solution came like an expensive, unexpected present. You have always loved to read. I would give you the details of my history—our history—in writing.

Yes, I could have simply loaned you my journal, but it contains too many gaps. Whenever I look through it, I recall details I failed to include. Important ones.

So I had Dr. Morales get in touch with Señor Roger Bruner for me. You remember Señor Roger, don’t you? He’s the older gentleman who wrote about Kim Hartlinger’s trip to Santa María in Found in Translation. If Nikki hadn’t translated it into Spanish, you and I might never have been able to read it. But he made a few mistakes I would politely point out when we went through my journal together.

If he agreed to help, that is.

Thank goodness he was delighted at the idea of using my journal as the basis—the skeleton, he called it—of a new book. He would add to it the things Nikki and I remembered, including corrections to his earlier mistakes. Nikki would be especially helpful in recalling things she had said to me in English before she learned to speak Spanish. As well as things I couldn’t have seen or known about.

He flew to San Diego and drove down to Santa María. The roads are much better now, he was pleased to discover, but it’s still a long drive. At least the village has gotten some vestiges of civilization. Like electricity and running water. Occasionally.

After many hugs, he and Nikki and I sat down together to begin. She had already translated my journal into English for Señor Roger, and he recorded our numerous conversations to keep from forgetting anything. Especially the additions Nikki and I made as we went along.

Although he calls this book a novel, one that is “character-driven,” he says it’s actually a memoir about my growing-up years from age sixteen to twenty-nine. That’s why he wrote it in my adult voice, using the language skills I have acquired over the years.

More important than any of that, however, Rosa No-Name will tell you everything there is to know about our family.

As you can see, Señor Roger published this book in English. (How strange not to be able to read my own words!) Since you speak and understand that strange language so well now, you shouldn’t have a problem reading it.

I wanted you to have this, the very first copy. I pray that it will not only answer your questions but entertain you as well.

Vaya con Diós, my dearest daughter.

Your eternally loving mother,

Rosa
