Dr. Rob Reimer
Brokenness grasps for the soul of humanity. We are broken body, soul, and spirit, and we need the healing touch of Jesus. Soul Care explores 7 principles that are profound healing tools of God: securing your identity, repentance, breaking family sin patterns, forgiving others, healing wounds, overcoming fears and deliverance. Dr. Reimer challenges readers to engage in an interactive, roll-up-your-sleeves and get messy process - a journey of self-reflection, Holy Spirit inspiration, deep wrestling, and surrender. It is a process of discovering yourself in true community and discovering God as He pierces through the layers of your heart. Life change is hard. But these principles, when packaged together and lived out, can lead to lasting transformation, freedom, and a healthy soul. Soul Care encourages you to gather a small group of comrades in arms, read and process together, open your souls to one another, access the presence and power of God together, and journey together into the freedom and fullness of Christ. http://renewalinternational.org

Leonard and Victoria Hester
Waskaganish Cree Nation is located on the bottom of the James Bay, in Quebec. Leonard was born and raised in the bush with his family. They hunted, trapped and lived off the land. Victoria was born in a tipi, and learned valuable lessons at an early age by her father. Everything changed when she was sent to residential school. In the school she was mistreated and concluded it was because she was Indian. From there she developed low self-esteem. It wasn’t until later on in life, during a prayer meeting that God showed her a picture of a beautiful Indian princess. Leonard and Victoria have been married for 48 years!

Matt and Lisa Jacobson
Couples with great marriages know one simple truth: the best marriages are made up of many everyday decisions that say, "I love you" rather than those that say, "I love me." When we put the other person first, even in little ways, we find true fulfillment. These books offer wives who want to love their husbands and husbands who want to love their wives practical, hands-on advice to start applying immediately. Maybe you are just entering into marriage and want to start off on the right foot. Maybe you have made some mistakes along the way and are struggling to connect. Or maybe you just want your marriage to go from good to great. Wherever you currently are in your relationship, these books teach men and women how to love one another better. club31women.com http://faithfulman.com/faithfullife http://club31women.com
