posted on

From February 14th through February 28th,  Ambassador International will be hosting a Book Tour for one of our new releases, Love Him Anyway, by Abby Banks. We’re looking for bloggers to join in! Approved bloggers who sign up for a specific day on the tour will also be entered to win a prize bundle of three lovely Scripture prints from ArtByNarae and a necklace from LittleThingsbyAmyLyn!

9781620205723So, what is Love Him Anyway? It is a story about “finding hope in the hardest places” for the Banks family. Abby Banks put her healthy, happy infant son to sleep, but when she awoke the next morning, she felt as though she was living a nightmare. Her son, Wyatt, was paralyzed. There was no fall, no accident, no warning. A rare autoimmune disease attacked his spinal cord, and there was no cure.

Love Him Anyway is a memoir recounting the family’s struggle to come to grips with Wyatt’s devastating diagnosis and difficult rehabilitation. Abby found true hope in making a simple choice, a choice to love anyway—to love her son, the life she didn’t plan, and the God of hope, who is faithful even when the healing doesn’t come. In Love Him Anyway, Abby shares her family’s journey from heartbreak to triumph and reminds us that hope and joy can be found in life’s hardest places.FHL-PrintGroup

“Created to Live” available for only $.99!

Created to Live is a deep and engaging perspective on the effect of abortion on women in the Church and in our nation.”

-Linda J. Cochrane, R.N., CEO,

Author of Forgiven and Set Free

In today’s America, an abortion is performed every 26 seconds. Since 1973, nearly 58 million abortions have been performed in the United States alone, devastating countless women, men, and families. If you have had an abortion, know someone who has, or desire to make a pro-life impact in your community, Created to Live features resources, hard truths, and practical steps to help end the abortion epidemic. The days of hanging in the balance are over. The grey area is quickly becoming black or white. The choice is ours.

CreatedtoLiveCathy Harris, a post-abortive woman herself, gives insight through her own story. Looking for new life for herself after her abortion, Cathy was brave enough to step through the doors of a church. Because of one bold conversation, a genuine community, and a merciful God, life found her. Now she dreams that other women will find the abundant life they search for, both before and after abortion.

Equipping women, church communities, and pastors, Created to Live starts the conversation that few are brave enough to start. God will always be merciful: will you be part of the abortion-free community that thousands of women and babies need?

5 Things About Author Cathy Harris

Learn more about your favorite Ambassador authors with our “Five Things” series. Author Cathy Harris wrote the amazing living testimony  “Created to Live” Here are Cathy’s “five things”:

I love watching childbirth. Ever since I had my first daughter naturally 7 years ago, I have been in awe of the childbirth process. I love learning about natural childbirth as well as teaching it. I have been a childbirth educator for the past 6 ½ years. As much as I love teaching, nothing compares to attending and being part of a birth. I love watching mothers become strong empowered women. I love watching fathers comfort and coach their wives in gentleness and confidence. I love watching babies be born wide opened and ready to take in the world. About a year ago, I had a chance to catch a baby for a couple having a homebirth. Due to a very fast birth, 9781620205716the midwife was not able to make it to their home in time for the birth. I was forced and delighted to jump in as the acting midwife to catch their squishy and cute baby boy. A process that might be scary or even gross to many people, is fascinating to me. When my kids get older and leave the house, I might just attend births just for fun.

 

I homeschool my kids. Homeschooling started out as something I was terrified to do. Now it is a delight and privilege. Of course, it is also a huge challenge. There are days I think about putting my kids on the school bus, but our incredible homeschool community helps me work through the hard days. We are a part of a community called Classical Conversations. We actually “go to school” every Friday together. Each of my kids have their own class and teacher. I have been blessed (or perhaps I am the only crazy one in the bunch) to teach the 4 and 5 years olds. Much of my time on Fridays is helping these young ones memorize and absorb new information in the following subjects: history, math, geography, Latin, English, science, and fine arts. Bottom line is, I pretty much make a fool out of myself in front of a few moms and 8 kids every week. We dance, sing, march, and even roll out our new memory work. It is a ton of fun. Unless God changes our course, we plan to homeschool our kids through high school.

I love the arts. Singing, painting, and playing the piano were my past times. Before the days of snotty noses, diapers, homeschooling, and soccer fields, I spent most of my free time painting, playing the piano, or singing. I sang for several years on the church worship team and was a member of a few of the worship teams in the Atlanta International House of Prayer. I don’t get a chance to dabble in the arts all that much anymore. I guess you could say that home décor, chalk painting furniture, and writing have replaced the hobbies of the past. And, if I can sneak a ticket to a play or pop in a musical in the DVD player, I am a happy girl.

 

I am an introvert. Some people may find it strange for an author, speaker, and teacher to be an introvert. I love being around a lot of people, but I refuel in my alone time or with people who know me well. I would also much rather sit down with you and have deep conversation over coffee than mingle in a large crowd. I am not the life of the party at all. I actually tend to be very reflective, practical, and quiet. I am an ISTJ according to the Myers Briggs Personality Test. Funny enough this is the opposite from my husband in every way. I am an introverted (I) sensor (S) who logically thinks through everything (T) and loves discovering what is just (J) in every situation. Being spontaneous is a challenge. I make a list for everything that requires planning, and I have 4 white boards in our house that help me organize life. Some would say that I am boring, but I would say I am practical.

 

I love Missions. I love everything about missions. I love reading about it, supporting missionaries, and hearing about what God is doing all of the earth. I served as a missionary for 6 years before I got married through the United Methodist Missionary Society. Although I was not an overseas missionary, I was appointed as an associate director at the United Methodist Student Center (The Wesley Foundation) at the University of Georgia. I was also blessed with the opportunity to go on or lead college mission teams to Los Angeles, New York, Omaha, Guatemala, Scotland, and Israel. My husband and I also served as the Adventures in Missions Field Coordinators for a summer in Philadelphia. We hope as our kids get a bit older, we will be able to continue taking mission trips.

Everybody wants to change the world. We all wonder: why am I here? Is this all there is? Is there more to my life than what I’m currently seeing? So many common questions and desires, but what is the path to a purposeful existence? We must all answer one question for ourselves: Will I live a life that is focused on me: my dreams, my goals, what I want, the success I deserve, and where I want to go—the wheres, or will I live a life that is focused on others and the message of love and hope that can be found only in Christ—the whats?

positionorplatformPosition or Platform explores the two primary mindsets with which we live and discovers some of the potential blessings, or consequences, that result. A position mindset is about where I go or what I get in life. A platform mindset is about what I can give. A position mindset is a view of life that places importance and priority on individuals. A platform mindset believes in the bigger picture—that I have been called to proclaim the message of love and hope in Christ to others, to all those in my world. Find out which mindset you live, and pursue the next steps toward a more purposeful and joy-filled life.

“I Can Stand on Mountains” is on sale for $.99!

posted on

I Can Stand on Mountains assumes that each of the mountains mentioned in the Bible has a unique meaning and significance. They are more than topographical features; they are spiritual icons for us to understand.
Then, as the meaning of each mountain comes to light we find that God cannot be honored without faith; that He is capable of great wrath and great mercy, both; that He has a standard of conduct for all humans for all time; that He relates to us by grace and that He has appointed us to share that message with a fallen race, and more.
icanstandonmtns

And, He promises that He, personally, is the resource we need to reach pinnacles of the right mountains. “The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He makes me go on the heights.” Habakkuk 3:19a

“You’ll pay for this. I’ll get you both.”

Computer expert Lexi Wynn is frightened. Someone is after her, but she doesn’t know why. Is it because of her past or because she was thrust into a deadly bank robbery and might identify the ones responsible? Escaping a failed kidnapping attempt and not sure who to trust, she hopes her specialized skills with computers might flush out the name of the killer. When a tall, dark, and handsome stranger rams into her truck with the hearse he’s driving and puts his life in danger to save hers, can she ignore the attraction she feels for him to concentrate on the killers? Or is God the only one who can save her now?murdertimebeing

Drew Sheffield is irritated when a cute lady stops abruptly in front of him and he plows into the back of her pickup. After their initial confrontation, flashbacks of honeysuckle and sassy green eyes linger in his thoughts. When Lexi is threatened, he steps in to help the feisty young woman, in spite of agonizing over a past relationship.

Can Lexi and Drew forget the tragedies of the past and embrace the feelings between them or will ghostly memories snub out the promise of a future together?
