    Resting Place
    A Personal Guide to Spiritual Retreats
    A PERSONAL RETREAT. We've never needed it more. We run from one place to the next - from meetings and appointments to our kids' soccer practice, from work to class to choir rehearsal, from the grocery store to small group - and then drop into bed later than we hoped, exhausted and dreading the morning. We want to slow down but don't know how and don't really believe that we can. And often, the idea of a personal retreat - time for solitude and silence - makes us feel as anxious as all our frenzied rushing. What in the world would we do with an hour, an afternoon or (gulp!) a whole day of solitude with God? But what is the cost of our frantic pace? What are we missing by not slowing down for reflection and meditation on Scripture? What kind of toll does our anxious running take on those around us - and, even more deeply, on our own soul? In Resting Place, retreat speaker Jane Rubietta addresses soul matters with retreat topics such as: dealing with our fear of abandonment; wrestling with discontent; overcoming our attempts to control others; fulfilling our deep desire to be loved Spiritual retreats help us enter Psalm 23 rest, a place of true rest and trust in our loving, gentle Shepherd. With Scripture to meditate on, quotes to contemplate, questions, prayer and journaling ideas, and creative exercises, Resting Place leads us to and through times of rest. The silence and solitude will follow us into our everyday world as we allow Jesus to guide, comfort and restore us. Come to the Shepherd and find the true rest your soul longs for.

    Come Closer

    Come Closer
    A Call to Life, Love, and Breakfast on the Beach
    For every reader who’s bought into the idea of working harder, doing more, smiling bigger, or running faster to get more out of life–and then faced disappointment, fatigue, or the unnerving unexpected, award-winning author Jane Rubietta offers relief and irresistible promise. Her fresh approach to fifteen of Jesus’s familiar but too-often forgotten invitations in the New Testament remind readers of His promise that: Life can be better, more sure and satisfying, more beautiful, and truly tasty–not just someday, in heaven, but here and now. With humor, unforgettable experiences, and gracious encouragement, Jane plumbs Scripture to bring alive these invitations of help, hope, and the refuge of Home. She takes readers on an exploration of the fifteen times in Scripture that Jesus invites followers to come–for relief, light, help, hope, and even breakfast. Jane then offers engaging ideas and tangible things readers can do to draw near to these promises. Come Closer is an invitation to a richer, more spiritual life–an invitation that will open readers’ eyes to the love and feast God intends every soul to experience.

    Sensational after 60

    Sensational after 60
    Author Shirley Mitchell, a beautiful 65, speaks from experience as she leads the way for the first of the 10 million baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) who will be crossing into their 60s over the next 20 years. Promoting a positive and uplifting approach to aging, Shirley gives readers many reasons to be excited about this wonderful decade of life: believing in a loving God, the experience that time has given, the zest for life, children and grandchildren, retirement, and rekindled intimacy.

    How to Keep the Pastor You Love

    How to Keep the Pastor You Love
    Who cares for your pastor in times of special need?What can you do to help your pastor's family on a regular basis?Are there steps you can take to ensure your pastor is personally and spiritually nurtured?While Paul urges the church to "overwhelm them with appreciation and love" (1 Thessalonians 5:13), research and anecdotal evidence shows that most pastors experience little support when they need it the most. The result? One long-time pastor reports that he thinks about quitting the ministry as often as twice a week, and an estimated twenty-five percent of all ministers relocate every year. InHow to Keep the Pastor You LoveJane Rubietta explores the "flip side" of pastoral care--caring for your pastor. She breaks down the largely unexamined myth of the superhuman pastor. And she provides everything you need to know to build healthy, caring, mutually sustaining relationships among your church and its leaders. Ministers and their families can profitably read the book along with lay leaders to become more aware of where they need the help and encouragement of their congregations. Questions at the end of each chapter guide pastoral families in reflecting on their own experiences--both positive and negative--of life in the church.
