Loved as I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus

Loved as I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus

by Sr. Miriam James Heidland, S.O.L.T.

Although originally full of athletic ambition and goals for a career in sports news, Heidland was transformed in a very slow but deep way during her undergraduate years, moving from party girl to bride of Christ. In Loved as I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus, Heidland helps readers learn from her experience of seeking love in the wrong places and instead finding it in Christ. She shares her struggles learning she was adopted, battling alcoholism, and healing from childhood sexual abuse as signs of hope that anyone who desires to know Christ can find him and be loved intimately by him in return.

Loved as I Am provides a gentle and subtle template for finding peace and freedom in Jesus.

Good Good Father

Good Good Father

by Chris Tomlin

Good Good Father is the song that ended night one of our mission experience:

You're a Good, Good Father
It's who you are, it's who you are...
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am

Oh, it's love so undeniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable
I, I can hardly think
As you call me deeper still
Into love, love, love

Day 2: You Are Created for Relationship

Jesus: The Story You Thought You Knew

Jesus: The Story You Thought You Knew

by Deacon Keith Strohm

In Jesus: The Story You Thought You Knew, Deacon Keith Strohm invites you not just to read about Jesus, but to have a transformative encounter with him. This isn't a book of theology, or an abstract story with little impact on your real life. It is the story that can and will transform you if you re open to it. In these pages, you will discover who you truly are and what you were created for. You will meet Jesus, not simply as an historical figure, but as our living and present Savior and friend.

The prayer experience that we used on Day 2 of the mission was based on Chapter 7 of this book. Encounter again, or for the first time Jesus Christ, who lives ... and changes lives.

Available in paperback and Kindle.

Lord I Need You

Lord I Need You

by Matt Maher

Lord I Need You is the song that ended Night 2 of our mission:

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Day 2: You Are Transformed in the Spirit

Sober Intoxication of the Spirit: Filled With the Fullness of God

Sober Intoxication of the Spirit: Filled With the Fullness of God

by Raniero Cantalamessa O.F.M. Cap.

We tend to overlook Peter's opening words to the crowd that first Pentecost morning, to our own peril. His denial of drunkenness in the wake of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit should stop us in our tracks. What was going on here? How did the apostles experience the Holy Spirit? What was he teaching them? How was he empowering them? What does this scene in the streets of Jerusalem mean for us today?

In Sober Intoxication of the Spirit, Fr. Cantalamessa offers pastoral advice and leads the reader through passages of Scripture and the Fathers of the Church to remind us of the incalculable power of the Spirit available to us.

The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium

The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium

by Pope Francis

Pope Francis's popular message of hope explores themes that are important for believers in the 21st century. Examining the many obstacles to faith and what can be done to overcome those hurdles, he emphasizes the importance of service to God and all his creation. Advocating for “the homeless, the addicted, refugees, indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned,” the Holy Father shows us how to respond to poverty and current economic challenges that affect us locally and globally. Ultimately, Pope Francis demonstrates how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus Christ, “to recognize the traces of God’s Spirit in events great and small.”

Profound in its insight, yet warm and accessible in its tone, The Joy of the Gospel is a call to action to live a life motivated by divine love and, in turn, to experience heaven on earth.

The Joy of Discipleship: Reflections from Pope Francis on Walking with Christ

The Joy of Discipleship: Reflections from Pope Francis on Walking with Christ

by Pope Francis

In The Joy of Discipleship, Pope Francis reminds us that joy should be one of the defining characteristics of any person who has truly encountered Jesus. This skillfully curated collection of homilies, speeches, and other documents from Pope Francis, compiled and edited by James P. Campbell, offers a fresh perspective on why Christian disciples should be so joyful in the first place and how that joy might manifest itself in our individual daily lives. Covering a broad range of themes — Christ’s Resurrection, mercy, wealth and poverty, the Christian family, and more — The Joy of Discipleship moves us to meditate on Christ and then inspires us to move out from our own four walls, jubilantly proclaiming God’s transforming love in word and deed.

For anyone who wants what Pope Francis has — an active, abiding, authentic love for Jesus Christ, for the Church, and for the people of this world — The Joy of Discipleship will point the way.


Breathe On Me Breath Of God

Breathe On Me Breath Of God

by Dustin Smith

Breathe on Me Breath Of God is the song that ended Night 3 of our mission:

Breathe on me breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I would love what you would love and do what you would do.

Breathe your breath and let us live.
Breathe your healing once again.
Breathe your breath and let us live.
Breathe your healing once again.
