New Film From The Kendrick Brothers: LIFEMARK Coming Soon!

I’m so excited to share a new movie from The Kendrick Brothers with you!   LIFEMARK is coming soon to theaters for one week in September – releasing on September 9, 2022.   I’m such a big fan of their previous movies, War Room, Facing the Giants, and Fireproof.

About LIFEMARK:
David’s comfortable world is turned upside down when his birthmother unexpectedly reaches out to him, longing to meet the 18-year-old son she’s only held once. With the encouragement of his adoptive parents, David embarks on a journey of discovery that leads to a staggering truth from his past. From executive producers Kirk Cameron and the Kendrick Brothers—creators of War Room and Fireproof—comes LIFEMARK, inspired by an incredible true story that celebrates the gift of life.

I hope you will view the trailer, and plan to go to the theaters in September to see this timely and powerful movie, LIFEMARK!

A Mother’s Love: Celebrating Every Kind of Mom

 

I have a delightful new book that I received from B&H/Lifeway in turn for a honest review to share with you called A Mother’s Love: Celebrating Every Kind of Mom from the (in)courage community.  A Mother’s Love is a beautiful book of encouraging, guiding, Biblical rooted words about motherhood in all it’s many forms.

As stated in the first section of the book “As women, we are called to both mother and to be mothered.”  The stories and devotions collected and shared in this lovely book are divided into five sections sure to encourage women who are either mothering or being mothered,  who may be traditional moms, spiritual mothers, moms of foster children, moms to the youth in their church, or a mom to their children’s friends, etc.

Beautiful artwork paired with Bible verses are scattered throughout the encouraging stories making A Mother’s Love a wonderful gift book!

I love these quotes from the Mothering Is pages:

“Mothering is delightful, difficult, beautiful, brutal, blessed, terrifying, sweet, good, and hard.”

“Mothering is surprising, mundane, ordinary, and extraordinary.”

“Mothering is tender, fierce, glorious, gritty, and a gift.”

“Mothering may not look a thing like you thought it would.  It may not be anything like you pictured.  But no matter what it looks like to you, for you, mothering is everything.”

Beholding and Becoming: The Art of Everyday Worship

Today, I want to share a wonderful, beautiful new book that releases tomorrow!   The book Beholding and Becoming, by Ruth Chou Simons, has quickly become a favorite of mine!   Ruth is Christ Follower, an artist, a mother of six boys ages 6-17, and wife to Troy.   Beholding and Becoming is full of Ruth’s beautiful artwork,  but even more important, is the the message of Beholding and Becoming!   Beholding Christ in the everyday mundane tasks, and becoming more like Christ, is the focal point of this encouraging book.

A few of my favorite quotes…

We’ve been given so much to look at, but we are missing the art of beholding.  We are so captivated by our technology and all that it puts before our eyes that we overlook the ways that God displays His glory through creation, relationships, and our ordinary circumstances in the day to day.  We look for dramatic ways to experience God, but His presence and transforming work in our lives happen minute by minute.”

“A day is no random cluster of time.  It is ordained and sacred, even when it feels ordinary.”

Sometimes I think we forget that one of the most loving things we can do as parents is to love our children with the full truth of the gospel–not a watered -down story, a feel-good pep talk, or a behavior-manipulating gospel of self-help.  That’s not the good news.  Jesus loved and saved us while we were His enemies, paid the price to pluck us out of slavery, and made us welcome in His presence–this is the gospel.    When we speak of this amazing grace in the ordinary routines of our days, we take the good news of the gospel with us to car lines, dinner prep, laundry, and even errands during rush hour–which may as well be the ends of the earth.  

If you hurry today, you can pre-order Beholding and Becoming, and receive the pre-order bonuses.   You can receive pre-order bonuses when you order one book, three books, five or ten books.   By the way, Beholding and Becoming would make great Christmas gifts!   The pre-order bonues for just one book are:

  • 8×10 “We Become What We Behold” printable
  • Behind-the-scenes interview with Ruth
  • Exclusive GraceLaced.com discount code

My early release review on Goodreads:

Beholding and Becoming: The Art of Everyday Worship by Ruth Chou Simons
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beholding and Becoming, by Ruth Chou Simmons is a treasure trove of beautiful artwork by Ruth; along with solid Biblical wisdom, guidance, truth, and encouragement for the ordinary, everyday living we all encounter. Through this relevant book, Ruth encourages us with what “beholding and becoming looks like for those who long to become like Christ”, and invites us to be “transformed, one everyday moment at a time. Particularly encouraging to me, is her wisdom on “doing the next thing”, and how “we have reason to rejoice in the gift of another day.”
I highly recommend Beholding and Becoming if you are looking for Biblical encouragement beautifully shared for everyday living!
