Book Release: Encounter: Experience God’s Outrageous Love


We are excited to announce the release of Leanne O’Donnell’s new book, Encounter: Experience God’s Outrageous Love!

Do you ever feel that your relationship with God is flat or lacking? Do you long to experience more of God Himself rather than simply learning about Him?

Encounter: Experience God’s Outrageous Love is a compilation of forty spiritual exercises designed to lead you into God’s loving presence so you can know God’s heart for you, experience His healing power, and discover your identity in Christ. Encounter uses God’s promises from the Bible to invite you into a personal experience with God in order to build a foundation of faith deeply rooted in God’s love. It’s affirming when someone tells you God loves you, but hearing it directly from Him is transformative.

The purpose of each exercise is to position you to hear directly from God through His Word. Each exercise will lead you through a verse, a short reading, and a few questions. Some questions will lead you inward to pay attention to your thoughts, emotions, and motives. Other questions will lead you to tune the eyes of your heart to God so He can show you what is true. Whether you’re seeking a reconnection, or you’ve never heard from God before, Encounter makes experiences with God real, possible, and accessible.

Order your copy of Encounter: Experience God’s Outrageous Love from a major retailer or request it from your favorite local bookstore today!

Book Release: Little Pig’s Big Shot

What a wonderful accomplishment for Jeanie Smallwood on the publication and release of her new book, Little Pig’s Big Shot!

Little Pig’s Big Shot is the biblical story of David a Goliath adapted into the three little pigs. While everyone knows about the big bad wolf that blew the houses down, not everyone is well versed in Bible stories. Little Pig took the wolf out with just a sling and a stone because his faith was in God alone and knew God would use him, in spite of his size. Just as God made David courageous, strong and wise, he’ll do the same for you, no matter your size. Read the Bible, it will give you wisdom within. God will fight your battles for you and you’ll win.

Jeanie Smallwood loves to write children’s stories about the friendship, love, and kindness of God. With colorful illustrations and heartfelt characters, Jeanie aims to inspire readers to be confident, brave, loving, kind, and to know how special they are.

Jeanie lives in Ohio with her husband. She treasures time with her family, prayer, worship, sharing the word of God, and  enjoys writing Christian poetry.

Book Release: Being Human

We are excited to announce the release of Sara Adams’ book, Being Human: The Yamas & Niyamas. Sara’s work is now available for purchase at book retailers worldwide!

In recent years, the practice of yoga has been heavily westernized. Some might criticize how far we have deviated from its origins, yet yoga’s increasing popularity has touched many more lives than it otherwise would have. While an asana practice is becoming a normal part of the day for many of us, yoga’s deeper teachings are often left unexplored.

The Yamas and Niyamas are a foundational part of yoga beyond asana. The Yamas show us how our choices and actions impact the world and its people. Their practice helps us step lightly through life as we become more intentional. The Niyamas teach us about ourselves. When we focus inward, we begin to notice patterns that reveal our opportunities, our purpose, and our truest self.

Being Human explores each Yama and Niyama from a lens of imperfection and without the expectation of a destination. When we begin our journey knowing that there is no finish line, we open doors we might have left closed. And when we accept that we can’t get it “right” or “wrong,” we create space for life to unfold without expectation.

Book Release: Halloween in Doxieville

We are excited to announce the release of Halloween in Doxieville, written by Darrin Todd Martin and Illustrated by Jan Row! Halloween in Doxieville is published by Doxieville Books under our Columbus Publishing Lab imprint.

The leaves are falling and there is a chill in the air, which means Halloween is coming to Doxieville very soon. The doxies can’t wait to go trick-or-treating, but there is one spooky house they always steer clear of. Miss Lucy is an elderly lady who keeps to herself and never speaks to anyone. She lives in an old, run-down house that is known for its spooky activity. When Miss Dixie suggests that the doxies make friends with Miss Lucy, they are surprised to discover that the spooky house isn’t what it appears to be.

The doxies learn that sometimes first impressions can be wrong and that making an effort to be friendly and kind can change things in a very big way. They also learn that friendship does not have an age limit, and older people can have plenty of love to give and a lifetime of stories to share.

Order your copy of Halloween in Doxieville today! Don’t forget to leave a review of the book on Amazon or Goodreads when you’re finished.
