It's likely you have a threatening giant in your life...an adversary or stronghold that's diminishing your ability to live a full and free life. Frozen in the grip of rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction, we lose sight of the promise God has for our lives. Demoralized and defeated, we settle for far less than his best.
God has a better plan for you, a plan for you to live in victory. That's why he has silenced your giant once and for all.
InGoliath Must Fall, pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath. The key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer - Jesus. Put your hope in him, and watch Goliath fall.
Oola Book for Women
If you haven't heard of the Oola phenomenon yet, it's time to catch up. First, though, you need to understand what it is: Oola is that state of awesomeness you experience when your life is balanced and growing in all the key areas of health and well-being. It can be a noun or a verb. It can be a destination or a feeling. It can be as complex as a life growing and balanced in fitness, finance, family, field, faith, friends, and fun (the seven F's of Oola), or as simple as a sunset, a quiet book on the beach, or a special moment with a child. It is that place we all shoot for in life.
That feeling we experience and that we celebrate in our successes along the way. In short, Oola is cool. Since the first copy of the original book,Oola: Find balance in an Unbalanced World, rolled off the presses a few years ago, the Oola lifestyle has become a literal phenomenon - a dynamic movement. OolaPalooza live events have been routinely sold out since the day they were started, and the Oola message has been taken to countless cities across America and to every major city in the world via nearly 1,000,000 Oola fans on social media.
In their 1970s VW Surf bus, authors Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun have taken their OolaDream tour on the road, from coast-to-coast, collecting dreams and goals for a balanced life from people who adorn their vehicle with colorful Oola stickers.
The OolaGuys know that women are the ultimate multitaskers. While a circus performer might spin seven plates in a single show, women spin seven plates - figuratively - every day. They not only juggle kids, family, and home life, they also juggle work responsibilities, customers and clients, make constant business decisions, handle professional events, and so many related activities that it's truly mind-boggling how much a woman can pack into a 24-hour day.
Come And Eat
Come with your brokenness, your celebration, and your worries, but most of all come and eat.
In today's busy and often superficial world, we all crave something deeper and truer. Maybe it's relationships that go beyond the surface or gatherings that allow for joy and pain. Though it may feel nearly impossible, what we desire is actually within reach! All we need is a table, open hearts, and a simple invitation: come and eat.Come and Eatoffers recipes along with questions to jump start conversation, while reminding us that connection with God and others is the most cherished nourishment. When we make room for others, we make room for God, and our homes become a vibrant source of life and connection.
