By Melody Carlson
Everybody does it--sneaks out of the house now and then. It's harmless enough, right? Not this time. Cleo Neilson faces the chilling consequences of her actions. Now she has a secret and can't tell anyone, and it's breaking her heart. As Cleo fights through her grief and guilt, she learns about faith in God and forgiveness through him. As teenage girls read Cleo's journey, they too will learn the value of having faith and receiving forgiveness as well as just how dangerous it really is to keep a secret.
About the series...Every teenage girl has a secret. And every teenage girl loves hearing someone else's secret. But some secrets are big enough to detour, derail, or even destroy a young person's life. Each of Melody Carlson's SECRETS novels will propel readers into a world where promises are broken, life is not fair, and challenges can make or break them, while ultimately helping readers discover that solid faith, loyal friends, and a persistent spirit will see them through.
God's Priorities for Today's WomanPosted
Discovering His Plan for You
Modern-day feminism and the decline of solid Bible teaching in churches have left many women confused or unaware of God’s high calling for their lives. Though the world changes, God’s priorities have not. In Titus 2:3-5, the apostle Paul reveals the value God places upon a woman’s character, her relationships, and her home. In God’s Priorities for Today’s Woman, popular Bible teacher Lisa Hughes explains and illustrates each priority that Paul describes, empowering Christian women to
- grow in their understanding of God and of what He considers important
- gain assurance they are living the life God desires them to live
- be equipped to grow in each priority area
- learn how to minister more effectively to other women
God’s Priorities for Today’s Woman will equip women of all ages to grow in godly living. Study questions effective for individual or small group use are included at the end of each chapter.
