Passion and Character(s)

For our latest offering, we are pleased to announce the publication of Godly Character(s): Insights for Spiritual Passion from the Lives of 8 Women in the Bible, an in-depth look at how desire for God can be cultivated by strengthening the practice of godly disciplines.  The book examines the spiritual effects of four inward-focused character traits—devotion, courage, faith, and vision—and four outward-looking character traits—initiative, nonconformity, tenacity, and generosity—as revealed through the lives of eight lesser-studied people in the Bible.  Reviewers have noted the impact of Godly Character(s)on rekindling affection and passion for God:

“This book is a terrific resource for anyone who wants more from their relationship with God than lackluster routines and complacent rituals. Lisa is both an engaging guide and an experienced practitioner, using Scriptures and stories, to lead us through eight characteristics needed to fuel a dynamic and passionate life with God.”— Carolyn Taketa, host of the Small Group Network podcast Group Talk

“This book is a slim treasure, packed with practical inspiration for the passionate Christian life. Utilizing the stories of some of the unsung heroines of Scripture, Godly Character(s) will be a trustworthy companion on the quest of devotion.” — Lanier Ivester, writer and speaker; author at
