Be The Message

BE THE MESSAGE

Taking Your Faith Beyond Words To A Life Of Action

be the message cover art  What would happen if we talked about God less and walked with God more?

Be the Message reminds us that Christianity was meant to be a faith of action, not a faith of words. Yet often we sacrifice doing    something for the sake of talking about it. When we actually act out on our faith, we find our faith grows even more.

People’s lives are changed when you allow your life to be the gospel to the world.

Living out the gospel in the world today is both simple and costly.  The Shooks explore that paradox through biblical stories and their  own experience of making a decision to live out the gospel in practical ways.  Choosing to be the gospel changed their family, church  and personal relationships with God.

   How can it change your life?

Greater

By Steven Furtick

Welcome to a place called Greater. 

FURT_9781601426550_cvr_all_r1.indd

Are you ready to open your imagination to the possibility that God has a vision for your life that is greater?

We all have honest moments when we’re gripped by a desire to feel that what we’re doing matters more. That who we are matters more. In GREATER, Pastor Steven Furtick draws on the biblical story of Elisha to empower you to take a God-given dream from idea to reality, stretch your limited resources and abilities in ways you never thought possible, replace the images of yourself that keep you feeling stuck in the past and make a significant impact with your life starting today.

If you’re tired of being ordinary, it’s time to dream bigger. If you’re feeling overwhelmed about where to begin, it’s time to start smaller. It’s time to ignite God’s greater vision for your life.

Bridge to Haven

By Francine Rivers

wmns_bridge_to_haven_cover_art

To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she’s paid to finally feel like she’s somebody.

To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua—Abra’s closest friend—watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who proclaims his love and lures her to Tinseltown. Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what’s expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at an awful price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now, all she wants is a way back home.

In this riveting and highly anticipated tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love, New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers delivers big-canvas storytelling at its very best.

Crash the Chatterbox

By Steven Furtick

wmns_crash_the_chatterbox_cover_art“I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God. I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember.

“Yet everything changed when I began to realize God has given us the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to. And once we learn how, we can switch from lies to truth as deliberately as we can choose the Beatles over Miley Cyrus on satellite radio.

“This is the key to pressing ahead and doing God’s will anyway, even as you are bombarded with thoughts, feelings, and even facts about why you can’t do it.

“I’m now awakening to the reality that we can access the power of God’s promises to constantly crash the system of our broken beliefs. I’m learning how to overpower the shouts of the Enemy by bending my ear to the whisper of God’s supernatural truths about my identity in Him and His strength in me.”

Crash the Chatterbox is for anyone looking to overpower the lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God. Discover how to hear God’s voice above all the others.

10 Days Without

By Daniel Ryan Day

A Rebellion against Apathy.

A Strategy for Action.

My life was full of good intentions—those things we write down in journals and share with friends or family, the important ideas that make us feel good about ourselves, the things we know we’re “supposed” to do as followers of Christ. But for too many of us, our good intentions never become good actions. Without action, good intentions don’t move us forward, draw us closer to God, or make a difference in the world. Good intentions are cans of paint that could have become amazing works of art—but never did. (Excerpted from Ten Days Without by Daniel Ryan Day)

Daniel Day could tell you all about his love for God and his desire to live as a follower of Jesus. But it took a simple but radical experiment to move from simply talking about it to actually living like it. For ten days at a time, Daniel chose to abandon a certain “necessity”—a coat, a voice, shoes, media, furniture, legs, touch—and to blog about it to raise funds and awareness for organizations that are doing amazing things to make a difference in the world. And then he invited others to join him in the experiments and spread the vision. Together they served God and others—and experienced significant personal change in the process. Ten Days Without is the story of their life-altering adventure

Ten Days Without is a compelling story and practical guide that will equip you and your friends to break through walls of convenience and indifference, and join a movement that is confronting apathy and ignorance around the world to make an impact on people’s lives in a God-honoring way. Ten Days Without is where our good intentions end and making a difference in the world begins.

Daniel has a B.S. in Business Administration from Appalachian State University, and is a graduate of the Focus Leadership Institute. In 2005, he spent a summer in Romania helping run a summer camp for orphans. Daniel spent two years as a sales associate for Cornerstone Bookstore in college, where he also lead worship for Campus Christian Fellowship. He then became the Director of Marketing for Asheville’s Fun Depot and Brookstone Lodge in Asheville, NC before joining Axis in 2010. Originally from North Carolina, Daniel lives in Colorado with his wife Rebecca, and their three kids Noah, Finley, and Ava.

Daniel started 10 Days Without in September of 2011. He was tired of just saying he was a Christian and wanted to live it out with his life. The 10 Days Without blog is about giving up good intentions and living intentionally as a Christian. #IntentionalChristian
