A honest, heartfelt and ultimately deeply hopeful collection of stories and reflections on the author's own woeful inability to be the perfect Christian. Acclaimed Christian writer and speaker Mark Yaconelli talks of his own failures and disappointments in Christian life and ministry, in order to offer others hope for the future. From the preface: 'We fall in holes. Plans fall apart. Dreams die. Faith disappers. Suffering is real. We need help to recalibrate our lives back to our compassionate, God-trusting selves. Often we need safe, creative space and trusted companions in order to move through painful and disorienting experiences. My hope is that the chapters in this book might provide that same creative compasionship ... What I'm offering are stories, personal experiences, honest reflections and practices that might help you move out of the hurt and disappointment for a moment and remember your deeper capacities for love and generosity. These are the same stories and practices that have helped me to receive my own failings and sufferings as spiritual gifts.'

In many ways society teaches us to try to have everything under our control. If we are honest, we tend to think that this can be true even of our spiritual lives. But Mark Yaconelli eloquently expresses the reality of our situation: "We are small, sensitive creatures with short lifespans, in a world that is often chaotic, capricious, mysterious, terrible and wonderful all at the same time. Failure, disappointment, loss and other difficult experiences call us to accept our humanity, feel grateful for what has been given, receive the care of others and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit." Using extraordinary stories from his own life and the lives of others, Yaconelli offers a narrative journey through ways in which disappointments have turned into gifts. In these pages are a wealth of spiritual practices that will carry us deeper into the grace we find in unexpected places.

It is a profound and simple truth: the way we feel about ourselves and the happiness we find in this life is largely determined by our possession of spiritual gifts, especially the three most important faith, hope, and charity.The prophets Moroni, Paul, and Joseph Smith all received revelations concerning spiritual gifts, and clearly taught that self-esteem is not something we achieve; instead, it is a gift that we receive as we grow spiritually.Drawing on insights from modern prophets and apostles as well as from the standard works, Gifts of Self-Esteem reminds us that the purpose of spiritual gifts is to enlighten and to edify.

We know God’s plans and timing are perfect—but what do we do in the meantime? Why does God make us wait, knowing it can be so difficult? Why doesn’t He act when time seems to be running out? Why does He answer some prayers in a moment and yet fulfill other promises after having us wait days, years, or even decades before the promise comes to pass? Mark and Tammy Endres have asked these questions and more. Though Mark was born with only one functioning hand, God has told them—again and again—that His plan is for complete healing. In When Heaven Seems Silent they share the lessons they have learned as they wait—lessons that have forever changed their perspective of God and how He works in the lives of His children. Through their inspiring story you will discover how to: · Hear God’s voice · Overcome disappointment · Wait without anger or offense · Face your emotions · Hold on to God’s promises, and much more!
