Certified financial coach and mom Jessi Fearon leads the way for overwhelmed readers struggling to get a handle on their finances and lays out the doable steps her family underwent to pay off all their debts–even their mortgage!–and pursue their dreams, all on a $47,000-a-year salary.

BETWEEN BALL GAMES
Leafwood Publishers / February 1, 2022
Note: This is my pastor’s wife & I’m super excited to share it with you!
From energy and injury to surviving middle school, moms are asking questions. They want to know about training, role models, overcoming fear, dealing with ADD, how to talk to their teenagers and how to get them to have a conversation. Moms want to know if they have permission to take care of themselves, how to not act shocked, and how to experience God’s grace and joy in being a boy mom. Twenty-six years of encouragement and wisdom is packed into this short read. Each three-to-five page chapter begins with a story and concludes with a challenging truth and a Scripture reference.
FIND YOUR PEOPLE
WaterBrook / February 22, 2022
In a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others has a powerful impact on our well-being. We are meant to live known and loved. But so many are hiding behind emotional walls that we’re experiencing an epidemic of loneliness. You were created to play, engage, adventure, and explore—with others. In Find Your People, you’ll discover exactly how to dive into the deep end and experience the full wonder of community. Because while the ache of loneliness is real, it doesn’t have to be your reality.
Moody / March 1, 2022
Long-time Bible teacher Kristie Anyabwile discovered as she prepared her lessons that a single inductive approach doesn’t do justice to the variety of genres that make up the Word of God. Because Scripture is a collection of writings that spans 1,500 years, many literary styles are represented and each must be taken into account for the fullest understanding of God’s Word. Kristie shows you the immense value of studying the Bible literarily—that is, according to the literary style presented in a particular book, chapter, or passage.
Thomas Nelson / March 1, 2022
In Undistracted, Bob Goff lovingly yanks us back in our lane and helps us get back on track so we can live our lives with real purpose and joy. In his trademark storytelling style, Bob helps us learn the destruction of distraction and the benefits of living a life of undistracted love and authentic connection; identify the distractions in our lives and either eliminate them or route around them; and catch a vision of our future, undistracted selves where we can experience true happiness and joy. Bob’s inspiring and entertaining stories in Undistracted show us what it looks like to live a beautiful and purposeful life rather than drifting aimlessly from one season to the next. He encourages us to fix our eyes on Jesus and harness life’s distractions so we can find joy despite our circumstances.
THE LAZY GENIUS KITCHEN
WaterBrook / March 22, 2022
Do you ever walk into your kitchen and feel the urge to turn around and walk right back out? Maybe you get hives when you hear the phrases meal planning and food prep, or you feel as though you just cram stuff in cabinets and hope for the best. And if someone asks you to host Thanksgiving at your house? Forget it. This is the book that will change all that, helping you create a kitchen that works for you.
AT THE TABLE WITH JESUS
Thomas Nelson / March 29, 2022
Through practical daily devotions, At the Table with Jesus invites readers to sit at the table with the Good Shepherd, building a habit of living life with him. The journey starts in Psalm 23 but takes the reader throughout all of Scripture to build a stronger relationship with the God of the universe.
HOW TO HEAL OUR RACIAL DIVIDE
Derwin L. Gray
Tyndale Momentum / April 5, 2022
Like many of us, Derwin Gray is weary of the racial divide in our society. He longs to see hurts healed, wrongs corrected, and trust replace distrust. The good news is that the Bible has a lot to say about how to heal our persistent racial divides. In this book, popular Bible teacher Derwin Gray walks us through Scripture, showing us the heart of God—how God from the beginning envisioned a reconciled multiethnic family in loving community, reflecting his beauty and healing presence in the world. This message is central to the gospel itself.
Hannah C. Hall
Revell / April 5, 2022
Thirsty isn’t like other devotionals. Rather than breeze past a snippet of Scripture and a loosely related anecdote each day, this unique devotional focuses your attention on one short passage of Scripture for an entire week, encouraging you to memorize, understand, and apply its truth to your life. After 12 weeks of these rich, deep dives into God’s Word, you’ll find your soul restored and your life changed. If you long for a closer relationship with God despite your packed schedule, discover how you can drink deeply from the well of Scripture in just 20 minutes a day.
KINGDOM VALUES: CHARACTER OVER CHAOS
Bethany House / April 12, 2022
In the midst of our busy and often chaotic lives, we sometimes forget the importance of building character qualities. By curating our values, we can rise up and fight against cultural instability, family breakdown, social media ranting, and narcissistic and grandiose personal promotions. Dr. Evans provides insights based on biblical virtues derived from the Beatitudes as well as the rest of Christ’s teachings. This book will give men and women a framework for personal growth and awareness. When we align ourselves with God’s ways, and exhibit that behavior for our neighbors to see and benefit from, that’s when real change occurs.
