Facing the Truth About Our Deepest Desires
Deep down, every woman longs for security, happiness, and love. Yet most women settle for weak substitutes like control, materialism, sex, and food. In Idol Lies, popular Bible teacher Dee Brestin explores the hidden idols that destroy a womanâs heart. Using biblical examples as well as her own personal experiences and those of other women, she helps readers move past their cravings to understandâand receiveâwhat theyâre really hungering for: an intimate, secure, life-changing intimacy with the True Lover of a womanâs soul. When Jesus is actively and practically fulfilling a womanâs deepest needs day after day, hour by hour, not only does freedom await, but the gifts of sex, acceptance, material things, and ambition become good gifts rather than dream destroyers.

Living in Love with Jesus
Clothed in the Colors of His Love
Following the success of the highly acclaimed Falling in Love with Jesus, Dee Brestin and Kathy Troccoli give women the encouragement needed to become radiant women of Christ. Living in Love with Jesus will help women go deeper with Jesus by applying the secrets from John's first letter, learning to clothe themselves in Christ's love. Instead of being a washed-out beige, living mediocre lives, they can become radiant with the colors of love. Using art as a literary theme throughout the book, facets of God's love are paralleled with colors, giving women vivid pictures of how the imprint of God's love can change their lives. This art theme will be carried out visually in classic masterpieces that illustrate biblical stories of God's transforming love such as Esther, Doubting Thomas, and the Good Samaritan.

The God of All Comfort
Finding Your Way into His Arms
After losing her fifty-nine-year-old husband to cancer, Dee Brestin wondered if her life was over as well. She ached for God's comfort but felt utterly alone. Then she discovered a secret that suffering souls through the centuries have learned: She began using psalms and classic hymns to speak the truth to her fretful soul. The truths carried by these timeless songs---many of which Brestin includes in this book---can calm the most fretful spirit. They invite the wounded heart to be quiet before God, to rest like a child in the arms of a loving parent. Each of us must travel down roads of bereavement, betrayal, and broken dreams. The God of All Comfort will help readers find their way into the arms of God. With compassion and spiritual wisdom, Brestin draws on the difficult beauty of her own story as well as her skills as a Bible teacher to offer companionship, comfort, and hope. Data
