I've been a believing Christian since childhood, author C. David Baker explains, but it's my personal failures that have led me to the deep well of Grace.
David poured his dashed hopes, broken dreams, haunting doubts, and paralyzing fear down that well and found all that's collected here, all he, like you, needs for living with peace, joy, and purpose: cool cups of relief, comfort, revival, and sustenance.

Money is something we handle every day. But how deeply does the Bible inform what we do with it? If we truly want to honor the Lord in how we use it, should we be giving most of it away? Is money basically a necessary evil a constant temptation in our pocket? Are we wrong for wanting to take vacations with our families, for example, when we could be giving that money to others in need?
Instead of just letting you read up on the answers to questions like these, this book presents them in a richly informative and inspiring devotional experience. As you daily explore 12 Things Jesus Said about Money, you ll be learning and reinforcing new convictions, each of them grounded in what Jesus Himself taught. Not only will it clear up misconceptions or conflicting messages you may have heard over the years, it will help you express these same truths to your children, incorporate them into your ongoing decisions, and enjoy a new measure of freedom in your financial life.

-Is it too hard for Him to handle?
-Does He have a good plan for you?
Following these questions, Bob Beaudine offers sevenpractical steps to walk courageously, faithfully, and cheerfully through your trouble whether it is a minor issue or a major crisis."

Readers follow the story of obscure Old Testament figure Huram of Tyre, an artist putting the finishing touches on Solomon's temple. He honed his craft and contributed something of beauty and excellence, though some of his best work was thirty feet off the ground, where few people would notice its intricacies. Likewise, we have the ability and opportunity to create something of worth, be it for the lasting enjoyment of others or for God's eyes only.
We may not all be artistic in the traditional sense, but we are nonetheless creators, made in the image of the world's Creator and endowed with skills and talents that can honor God and impact our world. Every good mom is an artist, molding her children as creations of God. Every ethical businessperson leaves a legacy of people seeing God through his or her careful work. Every after-school teacher makes a mark on the young people whose parents are busy just making ends meet. All talents, skills, and work to be creative and potentially God-honoring, from teaching and chemical engineering to number-crunching and packing a child's lunch.
Readers will gain leadership and life-management skills, while being inspired for daily living. They will walk away saying, "I am an artist. By being the best parent, coach, teacher, welder, pastor, husband, aunt, (fill in the blank!), I can be, I am creating something beautiful in the eyes of God."
