Equipped: Ephesians 6 Devotionals to Empower and Make You Victorious in Everyday Struggles

Adult Devotional

Is spiritual warfare real?  Are you aware of how you’re being attacked? If so, what can you do about it? Equipped takes a detailed look at God, at our enemy, and at our response. Everyday struggles happen, but you can be victorious. In Africa, people believe in spirit beings. Witch doctors cast spells. People dance barefoot over red-hot coals without being burned. Spiritual warfare is obvious. In other cultures, the spiritual battle is not so evident. Still, it is very real. Homes are divided by discord and divorce. Parents are overly busy. Children are lured into drugs and sex-trafficking. Churches are complacent and powerless. Is there hope? Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10 NIV). What’s stopping you from living life to the full? Read Equipped. Become aware. Put on your spiritual armour as described in Ephesians six. Stand firm. Pray. https://ruthlsnyder.com / ruth@ruthlsnyder.com

Laurie Haughton

Through the Lens of Motherhood


It wasn’t supposed to unfold this way. Raising kinds was to be all about playdates at the park, kitchen-table crafts, with the odd scraped knee and late-night stomach flu posing the greatest threat. It was to be a great adventure, not a terrifying ordeal. In a daily battle on the frontlines for the life of her son, Laurie Haughton faces a parent’s worst nightmare: a critically ill child. Expecting their first child and dreaming of the future, Laurie and her husband Tim were stopped in their tracks when a 20 week ultra sound and fetal echocardiogram revealed that their son had a rare complex congenital heart defect that made survival unlikely.  Trusting in God and committing young Joshua to him, they continue the pregnancy and, after Joshua’s arrival, walked through multiple surgeries and terrifying moments. Through her blog and in these pages, Laurie transparently shares the raw anger, fragile hope, and crushing disappointment that were her constant companions for years. She shares her journey in a way that is real, hard-hitting, inspiring and even humorous. Readers will witness faithfulness of God in the lives of his servants as they continually bring their hearts to him. A story that acknowledges the lack of easy answers yet the presence of God in their lives. Through the Lens of Motherhood will touch lives, inspire faith, and encourage understanding of those who walk through some of life’s darkest valley’s. https://lensofmotherhood.blogspot.com/p/order-book.html

Grace Wulff

Words of Faith to Live By


This little spiral-bound book is designed to be a devotional guide, to reflect, to pray, to journal, even to colour! It began as a monthly resource for a support group for women with cancer, but I soon realized that it could be shared with many. I have found it helpful to pick a word for each year, and reflect on that word throughout the year. This devotional guide breaks it down to 12 words: a word for each month, or you could dwell on a word each day, if you choose. There are verses for each word, and I like to choose a verse each week to think about. However you use this resource, my prayer is that it will encourage you and be a reminder of God’s faithful words to each of us. www.gracewulff.com

Susan Harris

Touched By Eternity: A True Story of Heaven, Healing, and Angels.


Most people have to imagine what Heaven would be like. Susan Harris doesn’t have to imagine. She knows. Not once, not twice, but three times she has entered the other life, and came back to tell about it.

On October 16th, 1998, at thirteen weeks pregnant Susan collapsed in her doctor’s office. Immediately she found herself walking on green grass in Heaven. On November 3rd, 2015 while in hospital she tunneled up to Eternity and witnessed divine mysteries of God. On June 24th, 2017, in the aftermath of dental surgery she is rendered unconscious and crosses to the other side as Jesus, the Light of the World, approached her. 

Touched By Eternity invites readers into the dramatic and awe-inspiring accounts of Susan’s miraculous healings— two of which occurred in Heaven—visions, including one of Hell, and encounters with angels. Together with the insights she received from her visits, the reader is lifted on a faith-filled and inspirational journey as none other recorded. This book will bring hope to the broken, challenge skeptics, and enthrall believers. A must read for anyone longing to know more of the life that awaits us. https://www.susanharris.ca / susan@susanharris.ca

Christmas and Love in the Room

Short stories and Devotionals

Love in the Room, is a collection of 30 devotionals centred on the Christmas theme, plus 2 pieces that deal with looking forward to the New Year. Most are reflections on my own experiences, like a story about the time my son-in-law put a specific set of baseball cards on his Christmas wish list. Or the time God and I had a conversation in my car as I drove home after sitting at a Christmas market where I sold only two books.
Christmas is a collection of 4 short stories, which have also appeared in various publications. Two of these stories, which are set in the far north, in Dawson City, Yukon, have won awards from the Word Guild and InScribe Christian Writers’ Fellowship. These are 2 slim little books that can easily fit into a Christmas stocking, like this one. They’d make great gifts for the readers on your list this year. marcia@marcialeelaycock.com / www.marcialeelaycock.com
