Purpose on the Path: Discovering How Growing Closer to God Reveals Your Purpose

Purpose on the Path “How do I know my journey has a purpose?

You were created with a purpose, so the path you currently find yourself on is where you will find the answer. Your life’s journey may look different, be unplanned, or disorganized, but God knows exactly where you stand. As we walk on our path, we need to see and hear that God is with us. My hope is that the chapters in this book will open your eyes and ears to the amazing journey we have with God.”

These short real-life stories will give you a new perspective on life’s challenges. In each story, you will find how God was there but was hidden by pain and problems.”

Family Worship: Making Your Home a House of God

Family Worship “Family Worship offers solid solutions to the increasingly dysfunctional family in today’s secularized society, and it provides constructive suggestions to those who want to reestablish their homes on biblical foundations. The Hebraic roots of the Christian faith establish the home as a small temple. This insight dramatically changes the dynamics of the home for those who believe in the God of the Bible and in his will for their lives. The Christian family was always designed by God to be the center for social, educational, and spiritual growth and maturity, a place of fellowship, study, and prayer. Now, you, too, can experience these same powerful dynamics that made the home the center of sanctity and security that it was for the biblical peoples.”

   

Sons and Daughters: Spiritual orphans finding our way home

Sons & Daughters Book

“Using practical, firsthand stories that offer helpful, portable takeaways, Pastor Boyd looks at the interweaving of his journey from spiritual orphan to treasured son, offering candid stories and freeing insights for every Christian still longing to come home. The truth is, many of us as Christians still strive to “fit in” with God even when our Father offers us the identity of beloved daughters and sons. We’ve already been admitted, approved, and accepted—but we aren’t living that way. In Sons and Daughters, Pastor Boyd looks at the interweaving of God’s grace and our daily lives: How do those who know they are God’s children think, speak, and act differently? How do they function as leaders and friends? How do they walk through pain?”
