A Work in Progress (The Faith Series, Book 1)Rebecca Avery has never been one of “them”—the popular kids, the beautiful people.

The only problem is, he’s in love with her roommate—one of the truly beautiful people. When Rebecca finds herself falling for him, she must find a way to break out of her shell or risk losing him forever. Who will win out in this mixed up jumble of feelings and loyalties?

However, when the roommate proves to be less-than-into-him, can Eric see past the outward appearance to find love with Rebecca?

For thirteen years, Teresa spent her Sundays in church pews. She joined small group after small group and moved from church to church, but it didn’t bring her peace. She was pursuing social acceptance and friendship rather than pursuing God. Have you ever felt like you were trying to find spiritual fulfillment in people rather than Christ? Or maybe you have found yourself thanking God for His provision one day and forgetting it the next. In her book, Anchored to Christ: Pressing on by Pressing into the Savior, author Teresa Blondo shares her story of fitting in and facing hardships, and how God used these times in her life to draw her to real discipleship. You will find comfort in her honesty about her “patterns of forgetfulness” and her struggles with finding satisfaction in Jesus.
Anchored reflects a portion of Teresa’s part in God’s greater story. In studying the Old Testament story of God leading His people out of slavery and bondage in Egypt, she began to draw some comparisons between her life over the last several years and the lives of the Israelites in the wilderness. Like them, she had forged a pattern of forgetfulness. God would provide. Teresa would forget. God would provide again. Teresa would complain and grumble, forgetting God once more. In drawing comparisons with the hardened heart of Pharaoh, she reflects on her life before Christ, and her own hardened heart.
This is a story about God restoring and reconciling, teaching and disciplining, and providing over and over. It is about Teresa’s life in the church before and after Christ saved her. It is about learning to take hold of your own discipleship and rejoicing in God amid trials. It is about the peace within that can only come from Christ. It is about being pursued by the Creator of the universe. It is about the patience of a faithful God, who alone can heal our faithlessness.
You will find hope, encouragement, and helpful advice as you learn to take hold and press into the Savior.
