Fresh Air by Chris Hodges. We’ve all gone through times in our lives when we feel like we need a fresh breeze to breathe new life into us. But what is that energy-giving, life-breathing force that inspires and empowers us? How do we put the wind in our sails again, so we can get unstuck, reset our compass, and redirect our course? Fueled by the breath of God, we are not only refreshed in spirit ourselves; we have the power to create a life-giving environment of freedom and joyful purpose around us.

Children: The Sheep that No One Can Find by Anthony DeStefano. One small lamb is convinced that the world beyond his Good Shepherd’s pastures is worth exploring. The little sheep unexpectedly meets a very hungry wolf, a huge angry lion, and a mean lying snake that tries to convince him that his Good Shepherd is a cruel and unforgiving but just when he feels trapped and frightened, he hears a most wonderful sound.

The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. The most basic question everyone faces in life is Why am I here? What is my purpose? Real meaning and significance comes from understanding and fulfilling God’s purposes for putting us on earth.
