Its’s All About Jesus
Lost And Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace by Kendra Fletcher is a powerful little book exploring the difference between religion and relationship.
Religion presents us with rules. We try to work out our salvation. We focus so much on ourselves and our ‘doing’ that we lose sight of God. “We loved our religion… more than we loved our Saviour.”
Relationship says it’s all about Jesus. It’s all about what Jesus has done. Our hope, our lives, everything is tied up in Jesus. He is the centre. “Only one thing matters: Jesus.”
So Many Godly Truths And Advice
Walking In The Spirit by Crystal and T.K. Chapin is a wonderful little thirty day women’s devotional. It is packed full of godly truths and advice. Each day is a gem in itself. If we applied these truths in our lives, our lives would be so much richer.
Daily there is a scripture, thoughts on how to live out that scripture and a question to apply to our lives. Each day is designed to help us question ourselves… do we live for God? Or for self? The questions help us to focus and examine our lives.
Thirty different areas. Thirty different days. A wonderful little book with power to change lives if you let it.

The people came from all walks of life – the old and the young, the rich and the poor – united by their compassion for a persecuted people. Dr Feng Shan Ho said “I thought it was only natural to feel compassion.” He personally saved the lives of over twelve thousand.
