The God who loves me leaned a bit more on my shoulders in the middle of that
heart- pumping adventure. I didn't hear an audible voice, but God spoke to me,
and it went something like this: “Are you getting this, son, or do I need to make it ...

While we don't consciously choose a less-than-life, it happens. Little by little, we start putting down roots in a land of less than: less than satisfying, less than interesting, less than helpful, and certainly less than hopeful. Before we know it our faith is lukewarm, apathetic, bland. Consider this an invitation to a different way of thinking, of seeing the world, of living in the world. But here's your warning: It will be a little unsettling. When we've settled into the safe and mediocre, pulling away from the status quo is inherently unsettling. For those who want to know that their life has significance, that their choices matter, and that they can start a chain reaction in our world ... this missional book is for you. Never Settle is a tangible reminder that every choice in your day is crackling with God's redemptive power - you, yes you, are called to be a part of what God is doing in the world. Don't settle for a lukewarm Christian life. Never Settle: Choices, Chain Reactions, and the Way Out of Lukewarminess explores a familiar passage in Revelation 3 where Jesus is warning the church in Laodicea. What offends Jesus so much? When those who call themselves Christian decide to play it safe and compromise - when we settle for lukewarminess. Greg Holder, from The Genius of One, Advent Conspiracy, and The Voice Bible, reminds us of the call to never settle by sharing the way out of lukewarminess, helping us see how our everyday decisions, habits, and relationships have incredible potential for world-changing, redemptive impact. Winsome, challenging, and practical, Holder offers a fresh vision for the Church: to be soothingly hot and thirst-quenchingly cold. To boldly follow Jesus into the world dripping with Christian compassion. The way out of lukewarminess starts now. The first step to take will be to break camp, pull up stakes, and refuse to settle any longer. Let's go.

Ingrid Law delivers another heartwarming story about the magic of friendship and the power of family in this companion to her Newbery Honor winning Savvy Gypsy Beaumont has always been a whirly-twirly free spirit, so as her thirteenth birthday approaches, she hopes to get a magical ability that will let her fly, or dance up to the stars. Instead, she wakes up on her birthday with blurry vision . . . and starts seeing flashes of the future and past. But when Momma and Poppa announce that her very un-magical, downright mean Grandma Pat has Alzheimer’s and is going to move in with them, Gypsy’s savvy—along with her family’s—suddenly becomes its opposite. Now it’s savvy mayhem as Gypsy starts freezing time, and no one could have predicted what would happen on their trip to bring Grandma Pat home . . . not even Gypsy. With her trademark style and whimsical, beautiful language, Ingrid Law has written another wonderfully moving companion to her Newbery Honor winning Savvy.
