Here are quite a variety of choices for this month.

20 Ways to Make Every Day Better by Jouce Meyer

Joyce is one of my favourite authors.  Our days are full of challenges and our impulse is to “write today off” and hope for a better day tomorrow. But that creates a hard pattern to break. One written off day easily turns into many, and that is a life far from what God has for us. A new, transforming sense of excitement, happiness and contentment in our lives is possible when we pursue God each day. Discover biblical illustrations, actionable advice, uplifting stories and the encouragement needed to start enjoying the life created for you. A step at a time.  


Hidden Wings by Margaret Silf

As society moves into a period of tumultuous change, and structures and values seem to collapse around us, many are struggling to find their spiritual path through an unfamiliar landscape. Using the analogy of the caterpillar entering the devastating world-altering stage of chrysalis, before emerging transformed, Margaret demonstrates that this moment could be an opportunity for immense spiritual transformation and hope for the future.
