The Story Devotional by Max Lucado Offers Light and Hope For Every Day


$5 SALE! The Story Devotional!

Yes, that’s correct – this amazing hardcover book brought to you by the great Christian author Max Lucado is now on sale for a limited time at Family Christian Stores for just $5.00!

Can you believe this amazing value? I’m so thankful for Family Christian Stores! What a fantastic way to encourage someone with a thoughtful gift that won’t hurt the wallet! I also love that with every purchase made, 100% of their profits go towards Christian charities!


I am picking up several of “The Story Devotional” for gift giving this year. Of course they make a fantastic stocking stuffer for your spouse or your mom or dad, but this is not something that you only need to save as a Christmas gift. I use this sort of Christian themed gift to give as a smile, or spot of hope in the lives of those who have recently lost a loved one, are going through a divorce, lost a job, lost a home, recently gone bankrupt, or any other terrible trials.

Life is full of ups and downs, but the kindness and love of a friend during tough times can reap a harvest of a lifetime of friendship. Wouldn’t you love to be there for someone this year no matter what season it is? The Story Devotional book is filled with encouragement and hope. It would also make a great birthday or congratulations gift. I highly recommend stocking up on this tremendous deal and have the resources to encourage many in 2015.


The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People reveals the unfolding, grand narrative of the Scriptures through 31 accessible chapters. Using the clear, accessible text of the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible text, this rendering of the Bible allows its stories, poems and teachings to come together in a single, compelling read.Like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance and redemption – and this story’s true!From the foreword by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee:
“This book tells the grandest, most compelling story of all time: the story of a true God who loves his children, who established for them a way of salvation and provided a route to eternity. Each story in these 31 chapters reveals the God of grace – the God who speaks; the God who acts; the God who listens; the God whose love for his people culminated in his sacrifice of Jesus, his only Son, to atone for the sins of humanity.”Features:

  • The story of the Bible – in its own words.
  • Selections from the NIV Bible with short transitions to connect the reader to the continuing story.
  • Events, characters and teachings of the Bible arranged chronologically
  • Timelines of Biblical events
  • New International Version (NIV) Bible text

Product Details:
Ages: 18 & up.
Page Count: 512


Are you attending a family get together, Sunday School party or Homeschool fellowship for Christmas or New Years? Take along this book wrapped and ready for gift giving and put all the adults or older teens names in a hat (18 yrs and older) and have fun choosing a winner at the end of the night as a fun door prize gift!


More Ways To Be A Blessing:

Don’t forget to bless those in nursing homes or hospitals during the holiday this year. We like to visit nursing homes or assisted living centers when we can as it brings such a smile to the faces of those visiting – especially when I bring along the kids. We also like to visit new moms or those having surgery or possibly in others in the hospital due to Cancer or other difficult illness and come bearing a flower, home-made craft or store-bought give that is thoughtful in nature like The Story Devotional book. This type of gift offers others hope throughout the year!

When’s the last time you brought a surprise home to your spouse or decided to bless your pastor or Sunday School teacher? There are lots of great reasons to pick up a copy of The Story Devotional by Max Lucado at this INCREDIBLE price of just $5 at Family Christian stores! Have fun being a blessing!

Feel free to leave a comment and share your creative ideas on ways to use this great book to be a blessing to someone this holiday season or anytime throughout the year.

Here’s a fun family game to play! I actually recently won this from another Family Christian Stores blogger!

VeggieTales Nativity Play Set

Another great gift idea is the Veggie Tales Nativity Play Set. We picked this up for our kids last Christmas season and they have continued to play with it throughout the year!

My three year old is chattering away about the animals and the baby Jesus in the manger, and the wise men all the time. My daughter likes to add additional animals and scenery to it from her other toys in her collection. Just click on the image of the nativity to order this today for your little ones.

Pick Up the Tenth Avenue North – Cathedrals CD and Encourage a Friend!


Come on now … who doesn’t love the group Tenth Avenue North and their powerful Christian music, right? I am just completely thrilled to share with you today the news of how awesome this new album called “Cathedrals” is! A friend of mine had invited me to attend a concert to see Tenth Avenue North recently and I am so bummed I couldn’t go! I would have loved to experience hearing the newest songs live!

However, I did recently pick up a copy of their new cd and I have to tell you – it is fantastic for so many reasons! Their sound, lyric style, voice harmonies, and the very heart and soul of what they are trying to share in this album is very moving and will touch the lives of many who hear it.

From 12/5 through 12/24, you can use the Family Christian coupon to get the CD for an AMAZING deal at only $6.99 and make lots of people smile with joy! I know I’d be super excited to receive it!


With the songs on Cathedrals, Tenth Avenue North encourages us to get off our self-made islands of isolation, to break the chains of shame that have kept us there and to find communion with God and each other. Tenth Avenue North encourages us to realize God’s spirit doesn’t dwell in buildings, He dwells in us – for we are His cathedrals.


Songs on the album:

  • No Man Is An Island
  • Stars In The Night
  • Iesu, Dulcis Memoria (feat. Audrey Assad)
  • Cathedrals
  • I Need You, I Love You, I Want You
  • The Spark
  • Heaven’s Sound
  • Stay
  • We Won’t Numb The Pain/Fire
  • Closer
  • All The Earth Is Holy Ground

Visit Family Christian’s website and listen to a clip of each song or make a purchase!

Tenth Avenue North’s Cathedrals album brings to mind all the truths of God’s promises to be there for us when the going gets rough. We are going to have hardships and tough times in this life, but as Christians we know and believe in the power of God and His everlasting promises to meet our needs. We trust God and realize He shall never leave us or abandon us – no matter how difficult the circumstances may seem. God is always there and we can turn to Him for strength and reach out to His people to give us extra encouragement too.

God calls us to bear each other’s burdens and help make the load a little lighter on all of us. This CD is a great reminder of how much others need us in their lives to be the hands and feet of Jesus – just as much as we need them for fellowship, encouragement and sharing our burdens too. We need to rise to the occasion and be the type of friend in the Lord that others are hoping to find.

Pick up a copy of this cd for someone you’d like to bless Today! This Cathedrals album by Tenth Avenue North is going to be a blessing to the receiver in more ways than you’ll ever know. Don’t forget to use the coupon from Family Christian that either arrived in the mail by their catalog book, or by email if you are a subscriber.  You can really save $ and grab this great cd for just $6.99 from now until December 24th!

Review and Giveaway of the Highly Anticipated Book: A.D. 30 by TED DEKKER

Ted Dekker, A.D. 30: PreBuy now at FamilyChristian.com

Special thanks to Family Christian Stores for the opportunity to review a pre-release copy of Ted Dekker’s new book: A.D. 30.

This is a really exciting moment for me – to be able to share with all of you this highly anticipated new book from Ted Dekker releasing on October 28! A student from the school my husband teaches at is a huge Ted Dekker fan. When she heard I was getting to review his newest book, she told my hubby how lucky I was. She can’t wait for the release! I’m happy to tell you that her enthusiasm will not be let down.

A.D. 30 is going to surprise you. The very heart of its character development and attention to detail in the story all draw you closer to the surprise guest that appears. I’m sure you can guess who it is just based on the title! A.D. 30 will make you embrace every moment of each page. Filled to the brim in Biblical facts and laced with emotional turmoil, courage and strength of heart  – A.D. 30 is going to capture your attention and not let go. You won’t want to put the book down!

A.D. 30 recreates a real impression of what life was like in Biblical times while helping you see it through the eyes of a woman. Keep in mind that this story is taking place during a time period when a women’s opinion was not valued, so the events that unfold are sometimes intense and keep you on the edge of your seat.



“In A.D. 30, you’ll step back into the year of our Lord, and dive head first into a war that is raging between kingdoms on the earth and in the heart.

The outcast daughter of one of the most powerful Bedouin sheikhs in Arabia, Maviah is called on to protect the very people who rejected her. When their enemies launch a sudden attack with devastating consequences, Maviah escapes with the help of two of her father’s warriors–Saba who speaks more with is sword than his voice and Judah, a Jew who comes from a tribe that can read the stars.

From there, Maviah must secure an unlikely alliance with King Herod of the Jews. It would be a journey filled with great danger. If they can even survive the vast trek across the desert, they will enter into a brutal world run by kings and emperors.

On the way, Maviah crosses paths unexpectedly with another man. An enigmatic teacher who speaks of a way in this life which offers greater power than any kingdom. His name is Yeshua, and his words turn everything known on its head. Though following him may present even greater danger, his may be the only way for Maviah to save her people–and herself.”

Pages: 432
Release: 10/28/2014

If you are a fan of Ted Dekker’s other novels, I’ve been told this book is on a totally different pace than his others, yet completely captures the essence of Ted Dekker’s compelling and entertaining writing style. You will not be disappointed.

Thought-Provoking, Amazing, Passionate, Emotional, Scripture-based, Moving, Entertaining, Courageous, Well-Developed, Intriguing, Applauded, Intense, Inspirational, … my list of words to describe this incredible new book coming out by Ted Dekker could go on and on. I encourage you to buy the book and read the message behind the chapters and see how many other positive, descriptive words you can come up with to share about Ted Dekker’s new novel: A.D. 30. It’s a must read!
