About the Books

An Intimate CollisionAn Intimate Collision: Encounters with Life and Jesus: An Intimate Collision arises out of the belief that people sense there is a far greater reality to our portrayal of God and the Christian life than that which we have grasped.
Flecks of Gold on a Path of Stone: Simple Truths for Profound Living: Profound living is something that we all passionately yearn for. We’ve concocted a dizzying array of strategies, programs, steps and philosophies that are all designed to achieve the lofty goal of profound living. Yet, genuinely profound living is not achieved by developing innovative strategies, tidy programs, formfitting steps, or by devising trendy philosophies. Rather, genuinely profound living is seized and ceaselessly nurtured through the careful reclamation of simple truths, which are explained in this book.
Flecks of Gold on a Path of Stone: Simple Truths for Life’s Complex Journey: This book contains those simple truths richlyFlecks of Gold explained, practically expanded upon, and relevantly integrated into life’s realities in a manner that brings fresh insight, rejuvenated hope, and desperately needed resources to all of us who struggle through the complexities of life.
An Autumn’s Journey: Deep Growth in the Grief and Loss of Life’s Seasons: This book does not loosely gloss over loss or provide shallow prescriptions and weak formulas for our grieving. Rather, it aggressively embraces both grief and loss, bringing fresh eyes to these times in our lives in order to draw out of them the marvelous riches that we all too often miss.

Book Takes Readers on Intimate Spiritual Journey

An Intimate CollisionCertified Life Coach, Counselor Guides Readers Towards a Closer Relationship with God

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: With many years of experience both personal and professional, Craig Lounsbrough knows what it is like to deal with life’s most horrific events, as well as its most marvelous moments.  Whatever the nature and magnitude of the experience, God seeks to dramatically collide with our lives in these events in ways that are nothing short of transformational.  In his latest book An Intimate Collision: Encounters with Life and Jesus, (Ambassador International; May 2013; $15.99, paperback) Ordained Minister, Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Professional Life Coach Craig Lounsbrough helps readers find the majestic life God has intended for each of his children by uncovering and incorporating those most intimate collisions.

“It appears evident that God’s intentions for us are far more expansive and profoundly more majestic than what we’ve embraced and subsequently live out in our lives.  Something inestimably more is ours if we are relentless enough to discover it, persistent enough to find ways to seize it, and then tenacious enough to firmly weave it into the very fabric our lives until it becomes our lives,” says Craig.  The “intimate collisions” outlined in the pages of this book are for those who wish to let go of mediocrity and grow unimaginably closer to God.

Craig brings a number of profound events in scripture to life, and then intertwines them with personal and clinical experiences that plant those events firmly into the realities of living in the 21st century.  At the end of every chapter, Craig provides thought provoking questions for readers to meditate on in order to grow closer to God as a result of their own intimate collisions with Him.

About the Author: Craig Lounsbrough’s background includes over twenty-three years experience as a counselor in a variety of treatment settings such as psychiatric hospitals, outpatient clinics, churches and various ministries. Craig spent two years broadcasting in Christian radio.  He is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado, an Ordained Minister, as well as a Certified Professional Life Coach. Craig’s other books include Flecks of Gold on a Path of Stone: Simple Truths for Profound Living, Flecks of Gold on a Path of Stone: Simple Truths for Life’s Complex Journey, and An Autumn’s Journey: Deep Growth in the Grief and Loss of Life’s Seasons.
