New Releases

EveryCongratulations to Steve Arterburn with M.N. Brotherton and Salem Books on the January 10th release of Every Believer’s Thought Life: Defeating Destructive Mental Patterns to Gain Victory Over Temptation.

We live in a sex-saturated world. How can you live a life of integrity in the midst of a sexual onslaught? From the author of the Every Man series (more than 4 million copies sold), Every Believer’s Thought Life helps all Christians—men and women alike—understand how to live a life of sexual integrity by taking every thought captive.

Jesus made it clear that while sexual integrity is expressed through the body, it’s rooted in the mind. But aligning our thoughts with God’s thoughts isn’t always easy.

Illicit sexual thoughts don’t need to have free rein in your mind. The Bible provides an arsenal of weapons to win the battle. Jesus invites you to live with full sexual integrity—in your behavior, heart, and mind. Instead of succumbing to the despair and darkness of sin, you can take every thought captive and replace it with thoughts that align with God’s truth, allowing Him to bring about His best for your life.

This book will teach you:

  • How to “reframe your brain” for optimum sexual integrity.
  • Why logic and willpower are not enough to win this battle. Fortunately, there’s a better strategy.
  • Why one of the big missing weapons in the war for your mind is not something you do but the realization of who you are.
  • How to live out the biblical mandate to take every thought captive and set your mind on things above.
  • How to be fully present in every moment God has for you, so you can live with confidence, calm, self-respect, and victory.

Congratulations to Kim Dolan Leto and Salem Books on the release of January 17th release of Fit God’s Way: Your Bible-Based Guide to Food, Fitness, and Wholeness.

An ESPN Fitness America Champion provides a step-by-step, God’s Word-based guide to equip Christian women with solutions to gain control of over food, find lasting motivation to workout, confidently seem themselves through God’s eyes, and live their best life.

If you’re tired of starting your diet over every Monday, if getting dressed stresses you out, if scrolling through your social media feed makes you feel insecure, this is not of God!

The way the world portrays health, fitness, and body confidence causes us to live in a thought cycle of “not good enough” and defeat, but in Christ we are free to live boldly as the best version of ourselves.

If you’re a Christian woman who loves Jesus and fitness, but you haven’t been able to get fit or find confidence, this Word-based solution is your answer.

An empowering Christ-centered system that exchanges the lies of the world for the truth of God is the answer you will find in this book.

It’s time to trade relying on weak willpower for the Holy Spirit gift of self-control, lasting motivation found in your purpose, and confidence found seeing yourself through His eyes!

Yes, you can cross the finish line of your goals. You just need your secret recipe!

Fit God’s Way provides the necessary tools you need to create your personalized daily system of success through the 5 Pillars of Christ-Centered Fitness.

If you know in your heart that you were made for more than failed diets and feeling less than… and you are ready to dare to believe with boldness you can become God’s best version of yourself, it’s time to live Strong. Confident. His.

Congratulations to Sarah Varland and Harlequin Books on the January 24th release of Alaskan Mountain Search (K-9 Search and Rescue Book 8).

A missing teen, a killer on the prowl…

This K-9’s on the case.

In the Alaskan wilderness, there’s only one way to track a serial killer: a K-9. For police captain Bre Dayton, that means working with her ex, search and rescue worker Griffin Knight. With her niece missing and possibly kidnapped, Bre has to find the murderer known as the Echo Pass Hunter—fast. Even if it means trusting the man who broke her heart…and putting herself in the killer’s crosshairs.

From Love Inspired Suspense: Courage. Danger. Faith.
