Dear you: Whoever you are, However you got here, This is exactly where you are supposed to be. This moment has waited its whole life for you. These are the opening lines of "Today Means Amen," YouTube star Sierra deMulder’s immensely powerful and virally popular poem, which lends its title to this collection. Like her fellow Millennial poets Tyler Knot Gregson, Clementine von Radics, and Lang Leav, Sierra has the gift of speaking directly to the reader. “Today Means Amen” has become an anthem of sorts to thousands, who find themselves reflected in its pain, its fierceness, its tenderness — but also in its triumphant culminating refrain: You made it You made it You made it Here. The poems in Sierra's new book explore the rocky terrains of love, family, and womanhood with this same remarkable honesty and generosity. Today Means Amen brings this important young poet's work to an even broader audience.

"Pray without ceasing" is more easily said than done. Prayer and meditation are a foundational aspect of a Christian walk. As we work to make our lives a prayer, the depth of our talks with God go further than simple requests to spiritual introspection and reflection, looking both inward and outward for answers that help us grow. Today's Prayer and Meditation features 365 prayers that dig deep into the pressing questions in one's spiritual walk. "I have known Phil for many years and can witness to the fact that his daily prayers are exactly the way he lives his life. The messages of each prayer to God takes us to higher levels of thought and spiritual understanding. Even more important, the prayers focus our thoughts to God and His mission and purpose for us." "As a professor, he showed love and concern to all of his students. He selflessly helped beyond their studies and mentored and coached many with addictions, and severe personal issues. As my friend, he has been supportive, and more important, always in prayer for me, my family, and for those in the world around us. I highly recommend joining with what he calls, 'the Prayer Warriors' and praying daily." - Mark Conroy, pastor, Coastal Church, Daytona Beach, Florida

This is a daily inspirational study book, based on a pattern to read your Bible through in one year. Rev. Rodney Whittle, along with his congregation, used this plan for many years to read their Bible through; it was such a blessing to him personally. He decided to follow that same format, as he wrote this book. There are two passages to read a day, a morning Old Testament passage and an evening New Testament passage. He would take an inspirational thought he received from that passage and write a study. As he wrote the monthly booklets, he didn't necessarily do them in sequential order and he only lacked eight days of his last month (January), before he passed away. His wife, Grace, worked and completed the eight days that remained, with other materials he had written in times past. Rodney E. Whittle was born in Cereal, Alberta, Canada, on October 29, 1928, and died on September 8, 2007. At his home, two missionaries from the Canadian Sunday School Mission arrived on bicycles to do missionary work. Through the ministry of these men, Rodney was wonderfully converted and called to preach the gospel. He spent the years 1944-1950 at Prairie Bible Institute, where the missionary boys were attending. He met his wife, Grace at Prairie and they married on August 28, 1950 and celebrated 57 happy years together. He had four daughters, ten grandchildren, and six great grandchildren at the time of his passing. He pastored and helped many churches; Houston Texas, Dallas Texas, St. Louis Missouri, Minneapolis Minnesota, Nassau Bahamas, and Kingston Jamaica. He was pastoring in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, at the time of his death.
